Sea monster shapeshifters. Absolutely unique, and wonderfully done. ( )

He was the coolest of the Cool...the Deanster. Even my Generation X remember the dude who sauntered his way through a song and life itself. This book is the first biography written about Dean Martin after his death, and the author uses firm sources (listed fully in the notes section) for the recollections.

The King of Cool's life unfolds chronologically, so it's easy for the reader to follow along. We learn about his first wife and first set of children, his days in debt, literally, to just about everyone, and then the Jerry Lewis years, his second family, and the Rat Pack time. There's nothing too astonishing here, which is rather nice given the usual outrageousness most celebrity bios highlight. Sometimes the author tries to create his own thoughts for Dino, without real verification. Still, Schoell doesn't go overboard and seems to respect his subject.

Dean Martin was a simple guy who loved wine, women, golf, and song. The essence of what makes a man cool, I suppose. Perhaps if you read DINO, Nick Tosches' extreme take on Martin, followed by this book and then the books by Dean's kids, you might find the truth somewhere in between. I enjoyed the life of a real entertainer and it even made me go out and purchase some downloads of Mr. Cool's songs. Them was the days.

Book Season = Summer (good book for beach time reading) ( )

This book was really interesting because I don't know much about Edgar Allan Poe's life. He was with a foster family, married to a cousin, an alcoholic and depressed. I think this is a good book for middle or high school. This darker side to Poe is really shown but it also helped with his career. ( )

It appeared mysteriously, at night, and destroyed the town with amazing swiftness. Houses were flattened, the bodies of men, women and children were crushed and mangled, hundreds were missing, vanished without a trace. No one knew what had happened or why.

Years later, the sole survivor of the holocaust, Tom Bartlett, began to suffer blinding visions--visions of a huge creature unparalleled in size, intelligence and evil. He was frightened, but something was calling him back to the ruins of his boyhood home. He was the only man alive who had even guessed at the creature's existence, and he knew he must find it before it struck again. What he didn't know was that while he was searching for the beast, it was searching for him...
