The Teleportation Accident by Ned Beauman
The Teleportation Accident

Amanda Schaefer, March 2, 2013

A crazy plot of desire, murder, sex and science. Funny, creepy, and the writing is solid. I read it in just a couple of days.

Amanda Schaefer, April 11, 2012

Don't let the size of this book scare you off. It is brilliant. Mysterious, creepy, sci-fi, romantic, and always exciting. Highly, highly recommend.

The Hardest Working Man: How James Brown Saved the Soul of America
The Hardest Working Man: How James Brown Saved the Soul of America

Amanda Schaefer, February 10, 2011

This book is great - I love a book that gives biographical information in the context of culture and politics. It never claims to be a full biography of James Brown - just a glimpse of the man and his music in relation to a specific time period (after the assassination of MLK). THe book explores a historic performance in Boston, and discusses the impact James Brown had on the Civil Rights movement before and after Dr. King's death. Excellent read.

The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel by Diane Setterfield
The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel

Amanda Schaefer, October 13, 2009

The perfect mystery for the book lover. Creepy, with great twists and turns, and a main character that any book nerd will love. Especially great for lovers of classic British fictiona ala the Bronte sisters. Highly recommended.

The Story of Tibet: Conversations with the Dalai Lama by Thomas Laird
The Story of Tibet: Conversations with the Dalai Lama

Amanda Schaefer, August 4, 2009

A very good popular history of Tibet. It blends Laird's frame story of interviewing the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, his historical research, and the Dalai Lama's unique personal perspective on Tibetan history. Excellent, and very readable.
