Gunnar's Daughter
This was a very good book. While this is written in a style very similar to that of the actual Icelandic Sagas, it manages to have more psychological...more

The Time Ships
While I felt as if The Time Machine was somewhat too short, this novel was almost certainly too long. Baxter did do a good job of presenting this as a...more

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
On a second reading, this graphic novel simply doesn't hold up as well as it first did. The characterization of Batman seems off, including multiple m...more

The Darkest Day (Iron Tower Trilogy, #3)
This was, in some ways, better than the first two books. This is in large part because there was a lot more action and a lot less traveling. McKiernan...more

The Dark Tide (Iron Tower Trilogy, #1)
This was a little better than I expected it to be. It's not the point for point ripoff of Lord of the Rings I thought it was. Instead, this novel is l...more

Buckaroo Banzai: No Matter Where You Go, There You Are...
Terrible. The artwork is pretty universally bad. All of the characters, especially Banzai, feel incredibly out of character. The established history o...more

The Invention of Hugo Cabret
To be honest, my rating for this is based more on the artwork and the general presentation of the book than on the story itself. The story isn't bad o...more

This was somewhat different from what I expected, though I admit that now that I've read it I'm not quite sure what I expect it to be like. However, t...more

Tailing a Tabby (A Bookmobile Cat Mystery #2)
As with the first book in the series, this was a very enjoyable cozy mystery. Minnie is just as good a character as she was in the first book. She's c...more

Hidden Turnings: A Collection of Stories Through Time and Space
This was a mixed anthology. There are some very good stories in here. Emma Bull's "A Bird That Whistles" is the exact sort of mix of music and faerie...more
