The many photographs are interesting and well-made. The political commentary in the essays is tiresomely tendentious. Added 02/18/2015 by Alan F B.

The File : a personal history by Garton Ash, Timothy.

Publication: Random, 1997 28

* Garton Ash, Timothy. The File: A Personal History. Random. Sept. 1997. c.224p. Garton Ash's (In Europe's Name, LJ 1/94) investigative memoir focuses on the waning days of the Cold War, when espionage and suspicion were the order of the day in Eastern Europe. The author went to Berlin to study in 1978 and soon came under the scrutiny of the Stasi, the notorious East German secret police. In 1993, Garton Ash had the opportunity to examine the secret file kept on him. Comparing the file reports with his private diary of the time, he finds distortions, fabrications, and surprising omissions in the file. There are compelling accounts of visits to his informers and the officers who monitored his case, yet the most revealing aspects of this book center on Garton Ash's search for his "lost self." While marveling at reunited Germany's unprecedented opening of the secret police files, he also analyzes the Germans' attempts to come to terms with their past.

Dear Committee Members / by Schumacher, Julie,

Publication: Random House Inc 2014 . 180 pages ; 20 cm Date: 2014

This narrator's style evokes a snaggle of barbed wire in a meadow or, as the jacket design suggests, a porcupine displaying its quills. Some readers might respond with a collective "Ouch" or "We are not amused." Others will be laughing from the first page to the last. I laughed. Added 10/30/2014 by Palma M B.

This poor book is on it's last leg. My son is in love with it, but we must be extra careful with it. I don't think the binding will hold up much longer. Added 08/13/2014 by Kristin Ann F.

Carsick / by Waters, John,

Publication: 2014 . 322 pages ; 22 cm Date: 2014

Interesting book that makes one want to continue to the next chapter without stopping. Easy to read, which makes it more enjoyable, especially since it is an adventurous novel--probably the fastest book I have read. Waters illustrates in text very well in the novel. This book is best for adults with an open mind who likes an author to extrapolate without holding back in fear of hurting the reader from continuing to read. Loved it!

Feng Shui design : from history and landscape to modern gardens & interiors / by Rossbach, Sarah.

Publication: New York : Viking, 1998 . 192 p. : 28 Date: 1998

This is a brilliant book by a true feng shui master. She has a deep understanding of the subject, and her writing style is smooth and quite easy to read. She uses pictures as they should be used, to convey her messages, unlike some authors who seem to use them in very haphazard ways, making you wonder if perhaps the publisher just put them in to sell their book. Everything Rossbach has written is of the very highest quality. Added 06/12/2014 by Yuri J C.

Supergirl : cosmic adventures in the 8th grade / by Walker, Landry Q.

Publication: New York : DC Comics, 2009 . 142 p. : 26 cm. Date: 2009

Disappointing. Supposed to be written from the vantage point of a 13-year-old girl. Unfortunately, it was written by a 40-year-old man. So there you go... Added 03/18/2014 by Jim M.
