Stoner: A Novel (Vintage Classics) by John Williams

I was left emotionally drained at the end of this book. A pure classic in true literary tradition. All who work in academia will instantly identify with the petty, internal university rivalries that constantly thwart individual hopes of promotion to the higher echelons. On a personal relationship level, it brilliantly evokes how cruel people can be towards each other. Such a pity success has come too late for the author.

In these days of global economic and environmental gloom, 'Life after Life' by Raymond A. Moody offers a glimmer of light. Although we all know that death is the one certainty in life, this factual book offers us HOPE for the future. From extraordinary descriptions of near-death experiences, those of us who have lost a loved one or are simply interested in the phenomenon of death end the book feeling reassured and calm. Everyone should keep a copy of Dr. Moody's book by the bed - just in case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pensioners in Paradis, 23 May 2008
In these days of myriad media programming about people moving their lives abroad and grumpy old people, here is a unique account of the pitfalls and joys of two sixty-year-olds who embark on that once in a lifetime adventure: emigration to another country. The style is unique, merging the pessimistic, laconic wit of earthy, elderly English Midlanders with the joie de vivre of les franšaises.
