The Secret History is a study of how a small group of people cope with evil deeds. It explores various responses to a fairly small number of key plot developments. The character list is fairly small, and the backdrop or tapestry of the story is nuanc ...more

A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan

This book finishes the Wheel of Time series. It is constantly moving, with very little time spent on the typical (for the series), strange scenes with the characters plotting. But that makes sense because this book really finishes the plot lines more ...more

The Gathering Storm by Robert Jordan

Clear rating
This book might actually require much of the 10,000 pages that came before it. The story is clearly coming together, and the mythos of the Wheel of Time universe really makes sense here. Some of the items that earlier on seemed unrealistic or otherwi ...more

Crossroads of Twilight by Robert Jordan

Clear rating
Individual books should stand on their own. On its own, Crossroads of Twilight has very little going on that involves resolution. I suppose the idea is to prepare for the next two books. But that cannot make up for the utter lack of development paire ...more

Although the main plot behind the book is intriguing, I felt like the way it was used in the book allowed far too much leeway to not develop good storytelling devices. Characters, story elements, and plot lines all dissolve in a way that may make the ...more

It is very difficult to review this book objectively as it is almost required that the reader have read the previous books in the series. That's not to say the reader must have read the predecessors, only that it is almost inconcievable that someone ...more

In this book John Grisham moved from pedantic whiner to someone attempting to change people's perceptions and use the written word as the means to achieve this.

I've read several other books by Grisham that deal with the death penalty, and I was somew

This is a very strong, well written, and exciting semi-triller. I reserve 5's for works of literature that expand the field, so my 3 is more-or-less equivalent to the 3.7 or so average that goodreads shows for this book.

The story is a very engaging l

Moscow Rules by Daniel Silva

This was a fun and easy read. It is not a work of literature and does not really get your mind moving much. However, it presents a compelling story and does not piss you off too much regarding how the story develops except in one way.
