From Hell
4.15
I don't really know how to review this book, but I feel I need to. First off, it's the first thing I've read since Salem's Lot at age 13 that gave me ...more

Batman: The Killing Joke
4.36
I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 just because it didn't connect with me like I thought it would. It's possible that's because I'd seen the Nolan Batma ...more

Batman: The Long Halloween
4.26
This is my favorite Batman comic - even above the Killing Joke or the Dark Knight Returns. The Killing Joke was good, but was one of my least favorite ...more

Faithful Place (Dublin Murder Squad, #3)
3.95
I really hope she keeps churning out books like these. This ranks in second place so far, right behind In the Woods, but you don't really need to read ...more

Oliver Twist

Obviously this is a classic and blah blah blah, but a few quick notes as to why it gets three stars instead of 4 or 5:

First off, it was impossible to

Naked Lunch

This book reads like a nightmare. I said, a few weeks back, that I couldn't remember reading a book I got less enjoyment out of than Trout Fishing in ...more

The Shadow Over Innsmouth

God, Lovecraft is great at being super creepy. I actually would have liked a bit more from this book - the first part is incredibly atmospheric and ee ...more

Logan's Run (Logan, #1)
3.69
It's okay, as far as dystopian books go. It was a bit too short to be as epic as it tried to be: they're fighting the Lost Boys! They're running throu ...more

Preacher, Volume 2: Until the End of the World

I realized with this one that the entire reason I was hanging on to the Preacher series was the Saint of Killers. Otherwise, this was just a series of ...more

Sin City, Vol. 6: Booze, Broads, and Bullets (Sin City, #6)
3.87
I think Frank Miller's one of those guys who is great if you just kind of ignore the somewhat sadistic and misogynistic basis of all of his Sin City b ...more

Chew, Vol. 7: Bad Apples
4.22
As a few others have pointed out, the pace is slower in this one than the previous volumes. This, I think, is necessary in a story this long - they ha ...more

Broken Harbor

Really solid. Scorcher's not as likable a character as the other protagonists in this series, but she handles that really well - and this is the first ...more

Gone Girl

Normally, when I read books this fast, it's because the writing is easy, but not particularly good. Not so for Gillian Flynn: she's an excellent write ...more

The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events, #1)

Pretty good, clever, entertaining. I'd give it more stars, but it didn't really wow me. The thing I loved most about it was Lemony's Snickets voice. I ...more
