"I'm going to keep plugging on this one because it got good reviews, but at the moment this feels like Nancy Drew in space. Very wholesome, with very clunky "Hm, you're right Bill, I hadn't looked at it that way" consensus-building. At the moment the only standout is the science." Sep 07, 2013 11:54AM

Grace Grace said: "Vampire porn, starring a Blade knockoff and Some Girl. The sex scenes made me laugh, and the plot... Actually, there was a plot, which is more ambitious than most fang-and-bang romances. (That's still not a recommendation.)

If you're big into women ne...more

"This is the biggest bathtub in all of Boston. It might actually be a pool. Judging from the acrobatics contained within, an Olympic-sized pool." Apr 28, 2013 07:45PM

"Bailing for now. We've got a mysterious girl, a shady stalker, and he's already thinking of her as the most beautiful thing he's ever seen. The setting seems to be contemporary, so at least that's not as painful. Anyhow, put it down and then read the first 60 pages of "the 5th wave" and THAT is how it is done, people. Can't wait for it's publication in May!" Mar 14, 2013 08:41PM

Eh. Not bad - there was something missing in here, not in the mystery, but maybe in the pacing? And Rook is wholly Nikki's emotional backstop at this point, he doesn't seem to have a life of his own. That was unfortunate.

Honestly my main takeaway fro...more
Grace is 22% done with Frozen Heat: I really like this series, but a little inside joking goes a long, long way. Naming a pair of detectives Malcolm and Reynolds got a genuine laugh out of me, but continuing to reference them is overboard, especially when it's a meta reference within a meta reference. Too much, WAY too much, especially when the book itself is actually very good.

Pretty good as a fond parody, but I wouldn't be particularly interested in reading on. The only way I can think of this to be serialized is if it turns into some sort of Scooby Gang-type mystery series, and I don't think the characters have enough oo...more

I wish I'd liked this better, but this is a solid 3 for me. I'm still confused about a lot of this plot, and the answers are so few and far between (and not answers) that it still feels a jumble in my mind. Imagine you'd picked up a book where the ma...more

What an odd book. It's sort of like Wodehouse's more bitter cousin (one more interested in class struggle) met up with a goth and hashed out a book proposal. The setup is that the Torrington family are about to lose the family home. While the stepfat...more
