I don't remember whose recommendation convinced me to pick up this book; just that it was along the lines of “this isn’t the Stephen King you read in your teens”. And it sure isn't. 11/22/63 was unexpectedly good: powerful, moving, with deeply human...more

Such a treat to read Calvino again! Especially interesting to read so closely after listening to Dan Carlin's podcast series on the Khans, although my newfound knowledge of the Mongol empire wasn't especially helpful for enjoying Calvino's quirkiness...more
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett
" Oh. My. God.

This was one of the funniest books I have ever read. The writing was phenomenal and I could see myself and others I know in many of the quirky characters.

Good and Evil's earthly representatives discover that the time for the Apocalyse... " Read more of this review »
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett
" Remember back when funny books were funny? Back before you went to college and found out that Dave Barry and Carl Hiaasen weren't funny after all, but Samuel Beckett and Charles Dickens were hilarious? Remember when the words on the page didn't ju... " Read more of this review »

What motivates a demon? One problem with modern retellings of the classics is that they have to face the fact that Hell is a silly concept. An embarrassing, pathetic, shameful human idea that we really should just get over. Mortality Bridge doesn't a...more

Clever. I think Levitt and Dubner have a hidden agenda with this book, which really should've just been title How To Be a Better Person. It's got a lot on those lines: learn to say I Don't Know, learn to question yourself, learn to think beyond just...more

Ninety Percent of Everything by Rose George

Infrastructure. We never give it much thought, and that’s ok: there’s too much to be aware of. Shipping, though... shipping is big. In terms of lives affected, social benefits and costs, ecological impact. We really need to be aware of this invisible...more

Tenth of December
by George Saunders

It took me too long to decide whether Tenth of December is pathos or bathos, compassion or cruelty. I’m going with kindness, because Saunders seems too aware and insightful to be nasty. Compassion takes many forms and I think this is one that I hadn’...more
