5.0 out of 5 stars An Important Piece, Oct. 30 2000
This review is from: The Spirit Of Intimacy (Paperback)
I fell in love with this marvelous book the moment I opened it. There are so many beautiful spiritual truths between the covers of this uniquely special book. I have passed this one on to a rare and unusual couple because spirit led me. Do yourself a favor and purchase and treasure the truths that are laid out before you.

5.0 out of 5 stars So many life lessons on different types of love, Oct. 29 2000
Ms. Cooper knows how to weave a tale and this book does not disappoint. I loved each of the stories in this book and the stories are always about love. The beauty of her books are they are to be savored and treasured to be read and digested over and over again. Treat yourself to this one...it was well worth the wait.

1.0 out of 5 stars To Insure Pleasure - - - Read Something Else, Oct. 25 2000
This review is from: Waiting (Hardcover)
An utterly disappointing read. Overall, this book was a total waste of time. I'd read the other reviews looking forward to a delightful read giving me some insight into the food industry and the entire waitstaff experience and was totally let down. It was like expecting the Palm for a delicious steak and getting to dine at Goober's Dew Drop Inn. Need I say more.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mildly Entertaining, Oct. 24 2000
This review is from: Durable Goods (Paperback)
I fell in love with Berg's writings through "Pull of the Moon" and "Talk Before Sleep" and couldn't get enough of her writings. Well, I read "Durable Goods" and found that adolescence wasn't a connecting point for me. I think Berg's strength is in describing and conveying being a woman. This book was a miss.

3.0 out of 5 stars Joy School gets a C, Oct. 24 2000
This review is from: Joy School (Paperback)
This follow up to "Durable Goods" was underdeveloped. Why was the father abusive? What's up with Katie's runaway sister? There are many angles to Katie which could be further chronicled. It's a good surface read but so much is yet to be uncovered.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Power of Girlfriends, Oct. 24 2000
This review is from: Talk Before Sleep (Paperback)
This book demonstrates what real girlfriends are all about. Berg explores the bitter with the sweet and explores the complex dynamics that make the beautiful bond of girlfriends. The strength of friendship along with the tenderness and toughness of being a woman amidst the frailties and inconsistencies of life make this book a true treasure. Simply stated, I loved this book.

What a great lyrical work! Lots of really great tunes with stellar talent like Erykah Badu and Macy Gray. This could probably be the soundtrack of the year!

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing read., Oct. 20 2000
This book started off well and you really got a feel for this wonderful and special older woman who was a healer and the central character. As the book progressed it became a struggle to read because of the other characters and their inter-relationships. It simply never came together for me.
I have, however, enjoyed other Kaye Gibbons books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ FOR WOMEN!, Oct. 20 2000
I loved the main character Nan! What a marvelous gift Elizabeth Berg has given by writing this treasure chest filled with womens issues, identities, etc.. She gave a voice to the things you look back on in life that women as a group typically give away....their power. They give it to society, other people, their families, etc.. This was poetically written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting!, Oct. 15 2000
So many goosebump moments in this one that rekindle your belief in miracles. If there is someone in your life that needs a pick me up, this book will definitely restore hope that there is something or someone greater than us orchestrating our lives.
