Yeah, vampires! Horny vampires! Well, they're not REALLY vampires. Moving on.

This book made me long for a description of a plain character. Every character was "seething with lust" and whatnot. That isn't a direct quote, but it probably could have be

High-quality fantasy fiction, Tigana took me a while to get into. Maybe my ability to delve into fantasy worlds has decreased some since high school. Or maybe it just takes more time to make your way through Kay's dense, well-established world.

A quick, fun and derivative read. The sociopathic protagonist is similar to the title character in Dexter in that they both adhere to rules to survive, though the rules differ. Without spoiling much else, other aspects of the story reminded me of the ...more

I've read few of the science fiction classics. I enjoyed this one immensely. Well-written and interesting, Childhood's End wrapped up seemingly disparate threads in a satisfying, thought-provoking conclusion.

Self-justification is a wonderful thing. I envisioned myself sitting on a leather la-z-boy, eating a double cheeseburger and considering how completely badass I look in my new leather jacket, while reading this book.

Damn funny. Ends sort of abruptly (and on a dour note). Some awesome humor. Not particularly enlightening, but, I wasn't reading it to be enlightened.

Bitchin', this book was bitchin'. If you have any interest in William Faulkner, Proust, or Seamus Heaney, then you might like this book, because it has some poetry in it. But there are no real instances of class or racial issues, and it isn't really ...more
