My spouse is a big Philip K Dick fan, and he was shocked to see this under the christmas tree. He is a little overwhelmed by the complexity (and small print), but says it's a good book for dipping into and enjoying in doses, not the kind of book you read cover to cover at a single sitting. Fascinating to look at and imagine how this author's mind operated.

I am new to the "conspiracy" genre, having a background in academic history, so I am quite cautious when I venture out into weird territory. If you are close-minded, do not apply, but for the rest of us, we have found a major ally and spokesperson in Joseph P. Farrell. His voluminous output speaks for itself. If you are a neophyte, buy "Grid of the Gods" and prepare to be amazed. But your next purchase should be this book, "Anatomyzing Divinity." This is the first book I know of that adopts Farrell's methods and/or purview to tackle new areas (or, at least, to tackle Farrell's research interests from a new vantage point). This book talks a lot about the inner workings of the "esoteric" world view. I was shocked to see how pervasive this "occult" view is in the modern world. The author, maverick scholar James L. Kelley, shows how the philosophy and theology behind alchemy has influenced where we have ended up in the Western world. The section on King Philip the Fair of France was sprinkled with irony and humor, since the great king wanted to be...a statue! I know, it sounds odd, but there was a long development of thought from the early middle ages that led to Philip's desire to, in a real sense, cancel-out any "action" or, as Kelley puts it, his "human energies." I am not doing it justice, though, and I encourage the curious to check this book out!

Philip Levine is my favorite poet as well as one of the best. I mourn his death. His book readings were incredible: insight into he background of the poem, his humor and wit, his commentary. They were always too short. I have been hoping some of his readings have been recorded, but so far I have not seen any online.

I read the Golden Compass before seeing the movie. I am glad I did because it maked the move much easier to understand. I assume the same would be true if movies are made of the other two books in the trilogy. The set of three books, I purchase from overstock.com are an excellant value. I priced the individual books from several sources and the cost far exceeds what I paid for the set from Overstock. For anyone who enjoyed the Narnia stories, the Philip Pullman series are very similar.

Lisa Kleypas does it again! I love to read novels that bring characters back from previous books, so I really enjoyed catching up with the Houston Travises. Haven & Hardy are well suited to one another and Lisa depicts the difficulties of building a relationship of trust and love with outside interferences working against them.I really enjoy Lisa's novels and read them over when I have time.

Philip Roth is indeed one of the best writers of this century. I have started reading though all of his books, which can be delightful, funny, haunting...This is one of the last ones I have yet to read. Some of is work is connected by characters and some not. There is not a bad one in the bunch. Some are on their second and third reading.
