You can almost tell in Shakespeare if you are reading one of the truly great plays as opposed to a work less well known because you keep coming across apt phrases that have become common cliches. Othello is loaded with them. And reading these little ...more

This play opens as tragedy. In fact, Trollope's He Knew He Was Right is basically a retelling of the first half of The Winter's Tale. A king hosts a fellow king for a protracted visit, who is also his best friend from childhood. Even as his pregnant ...more

Honestly I rounded up to three stars because the first quarter of the book was inspired. Going into the mind of one of the pilots whose brain was taken out and forced to complete a suicide mission for the greater glory of the rebel faction trying

I loved the Martian.
