Reading this book was such a GOOD experience. Yes, I only gave it three stars because overall I think that is where it falls in my personal inventory. But there were poems which I read over and over. Some I read out loud. I shared the collection enth ...more

Earlier this year I reviewed Summer Food: New Summer Classics (www.goodreads.com/review/show/1243982831) and complained that it was "just a cookbook". This time around I have the exact opposite reaction. Erickson's cookbook is full of all the stories ...more

If you are looking for a little excitement in your summer reading, this thriller might be just what you want. Unfortunately I am not a huge fan of the genre. But if you are - I found this to be a solid, middle of the pack, read. It wasn't the best I' ...more

A collection of short stories? Of course I'm going to be predisposed to like it. However this is Holly Black and I have a problem with her writing. Not with her, I think she is super talented. The quality of her writing isn't in question. But it tend ...more

The experience of reading a Nick Hornby book is remarkably similar to watching a Nick Hornby movie. There is something easy, breezy but with bite and heart about the stories he tells. His protagonists are always fatally flawed and yet they manage to ...more

A Gift Upon the Shore is a different kind of apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic story. Instead of action and adventure, it is a character study. One of the most interesting questions presented by this genre (or, really, any genre for me) is, "How do people ...more

A Hugo nominated, Nebula & Locus winning novella that wasn't quite as good as I wanted it to be. There were promising bits but the whole wasn't the greatness I was hoping for. Not that it was bad, but there was potential I was holding my breath f ...more

This novella was nominated for a Nebula and it is easy to see why. Although I think there are better stories in the Pump Six collection, this is a fine and entertaining read. If you like novellas or fantasy or want to read something quick to cleanse ...more
