What place is this?
All this could have provided the 'meat' for the story; but the fact that it's actually the prologue for events to come places Big Jim in the category of a novel with much more to offer than the singular story of a safari-type business gone awry, when an American journalist seeking a story of the big game hunting experience entices Big Jim to return to the bush.
From the dangers of a rogue Cape buffalo whom villagers believe to be infused with an evil spirit to Mary's awakening not just about the methods of game hunting, but the politics of game management and encounters in Africa, Big Jim is replete with undercurrents of social change, wildlife management, and hunting politics and is thus a recommendation for readers who want more than a singular action novel.
The ideal reader of Big Jim will be one who wants a setting steeped in African history and politics, who will appreciate a hunter's perspective as well as insights on wildlife management processes and challenges, and who desires all this couched not in your usual nonfiction format; but in a novel replete with insights on relationships and motivations.
The 'you-are-there' action captures attention "The first slug struck the cat in the side of the head, blowing out its left eye. The second slug entered the animal's ear and blew open its fleshy, heavily-maned top of the head where its skull would be if the lion had a skull to mention.
The simba roared and collapsed its full weight on Big Jim and clamped shut its jaws. Big Jim cried in pain as the sharp teeth dug into his forearm.
But this is no simple story. People have already been killed by whatever is out there, and if we don't stop it more people will die. She had not expected her handsome adventurer to turn on her so suddenly.
The enchanting story takes a different approach than most and roots its spiritual investigation in a young man's soul, which visits a place of lessons where a man may know his past, but doesn't judge it.
Adao then embarks on a quest, charged with 'slaying the dragon'; it unfolds that Adao lives in an isolated village bound by its myths and legends, and that his proposed journey thus breaks physical as well as psychological and spiritual boundaries.
Raised without spiritual focus, Adao is rootless "Father and Mother had taught me nothing of the unseen, as many of the people in the prairie considered such heavenly thoughts to be primitive, a crutch until a more advanced understanding of humanity and the physical world developed.
My only exposure to the ancient beliefs that spoke of the unseen came by history class at school and hearsay around the village from time to time. His encounters with leaders and philosophers make for an engrossing set of insights that ultimately add to his individual pursuit of enlightenment "The grand leader went on to speak about a variety of issues and philosophies.
His certainty and passion were electrifying to me. Will he return a hero because of the beast he's conquered in inner and outer worlds? Will friendship and love enhance or detract from his journey? How does a 'spiritual guide' work, and what happens when death enters the bigger picture?
As Adao faces love, sacrifice, and the dangers of the Dragon's voice, he also faces choices, consequences, and change as he leaves everything of comfort to follow an elusive voice in the wind.
This spiritual quest will appeal to a wide audience; but is especially recommended for readers of spiritual fiction and stories written by Carlos Castenada and the like. It takes a willing heart to embark on a journey far from the familiar, and to fully appreciate the depth and perceptions of Adao as he follows both his heart and an unusual invitation will require a reader who finds spiritual questions and quests stimulating.
Spiritually curious readers, especially, will find Adao's Dance a powerful, accessible, and compelling read. A Brief History, which concluded with the fall of the Roman Empire: One might think such coverage would be weighty and limited to graduate-level history students alone, but Schwartzwald has taken care to tailor these events for readers who may not necessarily hold college-level backgrounds in Western European history, and that makes it a recommendation for general history readers, as well.

Such vigilance seems hard to justify for men who believed that an individual's salvation or damnation was predetermined by God; but the reality in Geneva was that man's fate was determined by a far harsher judge: That Schwartzwald accomplishes all this in a manner designed to successfully satisfy both disparate audiences is testimony to an achievement that offers the rare opportunity to appear in both college-level history collections and general lending libraries alike.
A Ladder of Panties provides an unexpected image, to say the least - and invites curiosity as to its subject. If you've guessed this will present a blend of sensual description and possibly a dose of romance, you'd be only partially correct: A Ladder of Panties is so much more, and offers two disparate protagonists whose lives came together, part, and meet once again.
What happens to love when it's settled into other relationships for years? Inky and Sri are about to find out, and the process of discovering anew what has evolved in their separate lives is just one of the attractions in A Ladder of Panties.
Yes, it's romance - but the kind of romance that stems from long-term associations and new discoveries; not the fiery storm of first encounters - so if it's a barrage of nonstop passion that's desired, that's also not what A Ladder of Panties is all about.Colour photo-feature: No.
