Product Description
On Spain's Costa Brava, passion and intrigue are everywhere- especially in the hearts of those who dwell there. As the dictator Franco teeters on the edge of overthrow, two couples are entwined. One is a husband and wife bored with the existence they have drifted into, the other a passionate, combative pair who relish every moment of life. Into this potent mix comes a young American seeking his missing lover-bringing a shadow of danger into the machinations already at work. Soon, loyalty will be tested and blood will be shed as the country of Spain prepares for revolution. And none of them-lovers, fighters, man or woman- will ever be the same. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Totally boring
I'm a big fan of Lescroart and the Dismas Hardy books, but this isn't one of them. I had a hard time finishing it. It had a non-ending and would not recommend spending time or money on it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Read it!
A great novel about complex interacting, dynamic american relationships in a quaint setting in 1970s Spain.

5-0 out of 5 stars "sunburn" by John Lescroart
I received the book quickly. It was in even better condition than stated.
Thank you very much.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sunburned
"Sunburn" is an ambitious literary tome set in the early 1970s.

The major characters (Douglas, Lea, and Sean) are bored hard-drinking middle-aged expatriate American living in Spain, variously damaged, by an abortion, war experiences, a lost hand, death of a child, death of a spouse, etc.In short, "Americans playing Hemingway", as one of the characters describes them.

Specifically, Douglas, husband of Lea, is the principal narrator.They are on an extended vacation in the home of Lea's brother Sean and his girlfriend Kira (ca 25). Other characters are Michael (ca 25) and Tony, both bartenders.Douglas and Sean are unsuccessful wantabe writers.That's the setup.

DEVELOPMENTS--possible spoilers
Subsequently, inevitably, in a drunken stupor Sean commits suicide incorrectly suspecting that Kira is sleeping with Tony, while it is actually Lea and Michael who are having an affair.The death of Sean and the affair split Douglas and Lea, and they go their separate ways, mostly unchanged for the better or the worse. Sort of a "live goes on" motif.

I happen to be a writer, formerly an American expatriate who lived in Europe in the early 1970s, and variously damaged by life.Indeed, during that period,an unfaithful wife ruined my first marriage. Hypothetically, I could be a character in the novel.However, the novel just doesn't ring true to me.

I don't mean that I haven't known such people.I have.But those I've known were phonies---they did not "ring true" either.The world is full of empty people playing roles, who have no "self".But I don't think they are worthy of sympathy, nor are the disasters they bring upon themselves instructive in any way.

Although I am sure that it wasn't LesCroart's intention, the only convincing "message" that I get out of the book is that, "Idleness is the Devil's workshop".Younger readers---yet to experience real life first-hand--- might get more out if it.

The unnecessary pretentious changes of "person" and tense are rarely effective.First, second, and third persons, combined with just about every tense in the English language are used at various points.Nor is the first person restricted to one character.Several characters speak to the reader in first person.Most annoying is when the "omniscient-third-person narrator" doesn't bother to identify the main characters, but just refers to them by gender--in effect becoming a "ignorant third-person narrator".The novel is just too "busy" with literary devices.

LesCroart wrote the novel as a young man, and the characters are appropriately shallow, self-absorbed, and immature.Even so, it was a fine, even extraordinary, first effort by a young (when written) author.With that in mind, i.e., not expecting profound revelations about the meaning of life, it is an enjoyable novel.

1-0 out of 5 stars Save Your Money
I feel like asking for my money back on this one.I have bought pretty much all of the Dismas Hardy series and really enjoy them. This, apparently the author's first novel from long ago, has been resurrected and repackaged. It is filled with a bunch of 80's psycobabble with a slew of shallow, self absorbed, hedonistic, sluggards barely existing while drinking plenty of Spanish wine and whining about how little meaning there is in life.I have the audio version ($38.99 retail!) that I just gave up on less than half way through. I usually donate my "once listened to" items to the local library but am afraid I may just trash this one for fear of giving others the wrong impression of John Lescroart.He is darn lucky this novel did not get much publicity when first issued or he never would have become the success that he now is. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Help for Gunky teeth and summer sunburn
Donna Shepherd has a knack for giving kids useful information in a fun, and funny way. Kevin Collier's illustrations make the message even more appealing. I highly recommend this book for any child who needs to be reminded to brush his/her teeth and to protect their skin from the sun.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stories for Children Magazine 5 Star Review
This is a fun "book" to review since it is actually two books in one!Guardian Angel Publishing has come out with their Double Doozie line of books and now has a Health & Hygiene Line. In NO MORE GUNK, author Donna Shepherd has written a very humorous yet factual storyline on taking good care of your teeth and how to do so, in rhyming prose. Combined with the awesome and very funny artwork of Kevin Scott Collier, this book is quite the attention-getter for your child and will help you to teach him/her good health habits in a really fun way. I particularly enjoyed the "No More Gunk Tooth Tips" at the end of the story - even the tips rhymed! Good job, Donna!My favorite tip:"They're your teeth, so be the boss. Always take the time to floss." This was like reading a terrific poem full of FUNNY illustrations that your child will want you to read to them over and over and over! This is a keeper and gets a high five, especially when coupled with a SECOND free book!

OUCH! SUNBURN is also a terrific learning experience for your child, and one that hit home hard to me personally.Back in the age of the dinosaur, aka - when I was a small child, we didn't know much about the dangers of the sun and how it damages your skin, and nobody knew what sunscreen was.I grew up by the ocean, so I was either always at the beach, or at our local pool where I swam competitively.I am blonde and fair-skinned, and I had some whopper sunburns as I grew up. So, I can tell you firsthand, that everything Donna says in this book is absolutely positively the truth, and I hope its message really hits home to young readers. The charming rhyming prose Donna uses along with Kevin's fun, colorful illustrations, make this book lots of fun for children to learn how to protect their skin from sunburns.At the end, Donna again gives Ouch! Sunburn Extra Tips, of course, in rhyme.My favorite:"When you're out from ten to two. Play in Shade. Smart Kids do." WHERE WAS THIS BOOK WHEN I WAS GROWING UP? This is a must-have to teach your child safety in the sun at an early age.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Valuable Mixture of FUN and Practical
Some books for children from ages 4 to 8 are just fun to read--over and over. NO MORE GUNK combines fun with practical. Parents are able to help their children understand the value of consistently brushing their teeth and removing gunk. The snappy rhymes combine with vivid illustrations from Kevin Collier and the combination is irresistible.

While not evident on the front cover, you get two books for the price of one with this title. OUCH SUNBURN! teaches the danger from the sun and how small children can protect themselves. Simple thoughtful words combine with terrific artwork.

If you have small children, this book could become a read aloud favorite.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of Fun and Two for One!

Donna J. Shepherd's back and she's packing a punch with this Double Doozie!

When I was a little girl, almost every product had a jingle, which was a musical commercial with catchy rhymes.Jingles provided a pleasant and effective way to remember a product; the best jingles are still in my memory today.

What better way to teach good dental hygiene to kids?From plaque and morning breath to clean fresh teeth and tongue, Shepherd's fresh rhymes will help kids remember what they've learned in No More Gunk.Kevin Scott Collier's illustrations provide a burst of color and whimsy to spark the imagination.

At the end of No More Gunk, I was delighted to see that even Shepherd's Tooth Tips rhyme: "Brush with toothpaste twice each day/ for healthy teeth that won't decay!"

This book would make a great gift---but wait, there's more!

OUCH!Sunburn, Shepherd's sunny reminder, is included as a Double Doozie!Her rhyme perfectly captures the careless abandon kids feel when they play outside: "No sunscreen./Can't sit still./Skin will tan./Yes, it will."Kids and grownups alike will chuckle at Collier`s illustration of a boy coated with cool green aloe, but it's a subtle reminder to protect your skin before you go outside.

Parents and grandparents, this Double Doozie will make a wonderful gift for any child you know.Two great books for the price of one!

Product Description
When Joey Goldman's illegitimate father, a nefarious godfather from New York, heads to Key West, Joey has the bright idea of letting a Kew West reporter help write his memoirs, a book that no one — the Mafia, the FBI, or the real heir to Delgatto's family business — wants to see published. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Worth the reprint
The copy I read is a reprint of the original, unavailable for a number of years. My experience with Lawrence Shames has been the much more comic novels; although, Bert the Shirt - the retired mafioso who died is an important part of the action here. His trip to New Yaak after more than ten years of tropical warmth will strike maky Floridians as the equivalen of a descent into hell. One whom I know has no shoes with toes so people cannot make her visit during winter. Perhaps Bert is as close as Shames comes to the humor of his later books. This is a more serious but not heavy handed analysis of the biographer's art.
Arty, a newspaperman and friend of the "Godfather's" illegitimate son is tempted into assisting with an autobiography. In it the old man will tell all. But the rub is that he tells the philosophy of his life: discrimination, self protection, racisim, authority, omerta, the need for something of one's own. Arty is getting nowhere, but becomes everyone's target. Meanwhile he becomes closer to the family and "the family."Everyone else, Vincente's other son, the mafia, the FBI all think the book is a naming of names and the chaos that results reaches the point of murder. Still there is a resolution of sorts: not a happy ending but at least ajust ending. It is a very different book from Welcome to Paradise , for example, but still an enjoyable discovery. Shames would probably do better if he left out his attempts to spell out New York accents. But aside from that, a good Key West read.

5-0 out of 5 stars sort of a man's equivalent to a Stephanie Plum book...
Janet Evanovich writes an extraordinary successful series of funny crime stories starring Stephanie Plum, the bounty hunter who happens to be a babe.While they should have universal appeal it seems that the publishers target them to women (..guys don't like buying pink covered books).However I can now say I found the male equivalent to Evanovich's novels: Laurence Shames novels.They are also funny, well-written stories with quirky yet likeable characters.

So what does Shames give us with 'Sunburn'?Beyond the formulaic breezy comedic crime novel with a Key West setting he delivers .. shock!.. some rather dramatic and moving stuff (, without taking it all too seriously).We have an aging crime figure who wants to dictate his life story to a sympathetic journalist.Unfortunately both the FBI and others within the Mafia have an unhealthy interest in what is being written, and an especially stupid son makes matters much, much worse.Without divulging spoilers, I simply want to say the author has structured and paced the novel beautifully.The last fifty pages are especially good, exciting.

Bottom line: much better than his introductory 'Florida Straits', 'Sunburn' has made me a fan of Laurence Shames.

4-0 out of 5 stars Gilligan's Island with an Edge
RE: RECORDED BOOKS AUDIO VERSION. Among the quirky Key West characters are a reluctant & reflective Mafia Don, his pal "retired" heavy Bert the Shirt, a ditzy gun-moll with a heart of gold, a neurotic Jewish newspaper editor and the Shirt's aging chihuahua, Don Giovanni. They're all artfully blended in a stew of humor and suspense where its hard to tell the white hats from the black. Well worth a read.
One question: why am I the first friggin' guy to, whaddayacallit, review, this book, Knowwhaddamean?

4-0 out of 5 stars A minor affair.
A retired capo di tutti capi decides to leave the world his memoir before it's too late and hires a yellow sheet editor who thinks his life would be redeemed if he writes a book.

Therival clan and FBI come into play, the boss' dumb son arrives from NYC with his likable but confused bimbo to make problems for everyone - starting with himself.

It's jerks vs. decent people and these 2 categories can be found in Mafia and FBI in equal shares. After the spectacular sacrifice the good ones win and the book ends a bit prematurely.

There is a lot of smart observations, quirky characters and thelanguageproves that author really sees the people and places he puts into his text instead of just covering the paper withtyped lines.

But still I felt the tinge of disappointment. There was a lot of fuss with having to decide if writing the memoir is such a good idea, with looking for a sympathetic scribe, with FBI and the Mob getting the wind of it. And then... The project is cancelled. Leaving us to think that all that preliminaries were the excuse for introducing us to a bunch of eccentric characters going through their quirky routines with no particular direction and meaning. And then the author just lets the curtain fall when he thinks we've had enough.

Sunburn is a pleasant little affair with minor flaws, quite enjoyable, but it did not linger with me. I hope Laurence Shames was just warming up for something more memorable.

5-0 out of 5 stars These are some golden characters; I want more.
It took a lot of searching in airport bookstores to get the sequel to Florida Straits.

This book might even be better than the last one.

I think this book went out of print because everybody who reads it gives itto his friends to read, and nobody gets to buy their own copy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb Book!
I have read this book three times and have enjoyed it immensely.I am an avid swimmer and enjoy Conrad's thorough history of open water swimming.He gives his own personal insight on the sport, which is a nice touch.I would recommend this book to anyone whether a swimmer or not, but whoever has an adventuresome heart!

4-0 out of 5 stars A New Perspective On Swimming - It Took Me Out Of The Pool
This book is very well written although a little outdated (references to women, training methods,stroke technique,the virtue of fat).I thought I knew a few things about the history of swimming but this book took me into a new dimension. Out of the pool and into the wilds. I never heard of most of the open water swimmers mentioned by the author. Most of the races as well. The author ends his book around 1970 so I am now naturally wondering:
a. What has happened to the heroes of the story after that year?
b. How has the sport developed?
c. Is the author still alive?

4-0 out of 5 stars A bit dated, but great reading!
The original copy of this book was released in the early 70s, and politically-correct readers probably won't warm to his outdated language (esp. in referring to female swimmers). But if you can forgive the author by remembering when it was written, Wennerberg excels at describing in detail what these swimmers went through to accomplish feats like the English Channel, Lake Michigan, etc. He makes you feel as if you're swimming right along with these pioneers of long-distance swimming in the 1950s and 60s as they stroke across some famous bodies of water, all before the advent of modern wetsuits and goggles!

Obviously, Wennerberg does not mention any swims after the early 1970s (except in the afterwards of the 1997 edition), but being a rather young open-water swimmer, I really enjoyed reading about the brave men & women who paved the way for those of us who enjoy open-water swimming today.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dive right in!
At first I wasn't sure whether i'd like this book despite being a competetive swimmer myself. The title sounded pretenscious and overblown. However... reading this bookk gave me an incredible insight into the worldof marathon swimming.It is a mix of scientific knowhow (ideal foranyone planning a triathlon style swim) and amazing anecdotes from theauthor who manages to combine incredible feats with his own cool andstylish panache. In fact it's what one would expect if Kerouac had goneinto sports writing instead of travel writing. All in all, i canthoroughly recommend this book to anyone, even non-swimmers, for it's easymix of anecdotes and stylish sports writing. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It's quite interesting...
I always like to read Stine, R. L. Fear Street's series. They are short but full of excitments. This book is mixed with both murders and romance. I quite enjoyed that and I could hardly put it down before finishing the book!!! This story is about a girl Claudia and two other friends who were suddenly invited by a long-time-no-contact-friend Marla to spend the weekend at her Cliffside beach house one summer. At first, they all had nice time and they chatted a lot. However, many strange accidents began to happen at the beginning of the first night and they also realized that Marla seemed to have changed a lot. The weirdest thing was, Claudia saw a handsome ghost boy - Daniel!! And he saved her life once in one when she was stuck in the sand and couldn't come out. Was Daniel the one who made the accidents? Why did her come to her and disappeared suddenly again? I am not going to tell you the ending of the story so go and check it out!!! You will definately fall in love with it too!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Ashley's review

I loved this book! It was great my favorite part was when we find out that someone you think is herself really isn't! But all around it is a good book.

This book is about 4 girls that have been friends forever! Three of them Claudia, Joy, and Sophia are going to their friend mare's manechin for a week. They are all really excited. Until someone is trying to make him or her suffer for wait they did a year ago. Read this book and find out what and who is making them SUFFER!

I think someone who would like this book would be someone who loves to go to the beach because it is all about the BEACH.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tina's Reveiw
I enjoyed this book and I think its because I've read so many

books of his. I have been reading R.L. Stine books for a long

time, ever since 4th grade and I am now in 7th.

I liked the book because it had a surprising ending. I'm

really good at solving the problems and guessing what the

book is about, but this time I had no clue. There is a lot of

painful experiences and injuries in this book. Someone dies
at the end and you won't guess who. (It's tricky)

I think that everyone can read this book. It's at an average

reading level. Just about any age will understand it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Kristen's review
I did like this book. I did like this book because it is a Fear Street book and I like all of the Fear Street books I have read. Also because all of the people who live on Fear Street at first something good is happening, after a while something bad starts to happen. Some times it is the people who live on Fear Street that is doing the bad thing that is happening to other people. I like it because most of the Fear Street books are murder mysteries. I love murder mysteries because I want to know who the murderer is, who is going to be murdered, and why they killed the person they murder.

The book is about a girl named Claudia. She goes to a friend's house for the week with two other friends that she met at a camp. All the girls' meat at the same camp at the same time and instantly became friends. Her friend Marla is rich and owns a beach that is practically in her back yard. Marla's sister died at the camp they met at. The two other girls think that Marla brought them there to torture or kill them and Marla has been acting differently, weird, and not her usual self. Is it really Marla or someone else trying to do bad thing maybe even kill them?

The kind of people who would like this book would be people who like mysteries. People who like evil tricks that are not the funny ones. Also people who like some drama and some love in a story. If you like all of those things in a story than you may like this book.

Editorial Review

Product Description
A Ciceronian Sunburn reconsiders the complexion of Tudor poetics by demonstrating the ways in which poets and pedagogues appropriated the rhetorical brilliance of Cicero to inform their approaches to learning. By recasting the poetic texts of Edmund Spenser and Sir Philip Sidney as works that participated in sixteenth-century debates on learning, E. Armstrong challenges conventional views of Tudor poetics. He argues that the poetry of Spenser, Sidney, and others of the period reflects a more fully developed understanding of Ciceronian rhetoric than is found in the lectures, pedagogical handbooks, and treatises of early modern scholars to which historians of humanistic rhetoric most frequently turn.

Reclaiming poetics as a substantive force for the rhetorical tradition, Armstrong finds that the poetry of the period confirms Cicero’s dictum that "the poet is the nearest kinsman to the orator." By showing how the poets’ work contributed to and was appropriated by those immersed in the Tudor controversies on learning, Armstrong brings to the fore an argument that prizes the practical, ethically directed, and civic-minded over the moral and philosophical detachment for which the poets traditionally are revered. Armstrong offers a study that operates on three interrelated levels. He analyzes the writings of a circle of Tudor poets and scholars, all known to one other and in a sense conversing—Lodowick Bryskett, Spenser (and his glossarist E.K.), Abraham Fraunce, William Temple, and Sidney. On another level Armstrong broadens the context for the conversation by locating it within the divergent visions of learning and rhetoric advanced by Erasmus and Peter Ramus. On a third level Armstrong grounds these early modern disputes, both historically and intellectually, in topics discovered in Cicero’s De oratore and De officiis. ... Read more
