Kaila and 18 other people liked Hadrian's review of The Left Hand of Darkness:
The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin
"The Left Hand of Darkness is the sort of book which realizes the great promise of science fiction. It explores the meaning of the human condition in new and untested ways, and it creates worlds far different than many of us have ever known. Yet it..." Read more of this review »
Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake
"
What an odd fantasy! No swords, no sorcery, no elves, no thieves, no imaginary beasts, no multiple planes of existence . . . nothing but a cavernous castle peopled by eccentrics with Dickensian names (Sepulchrave, Prunesquallor, Swelter, Flay) who..." Read more of this review »

Umm...?

This was a weird book. There wasn't really a story. Things definitely happened but those things didn't really seem to matter.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
"1.5 stars


Giulia believes she's already read her fair share of ridiculously bad books, and it can't really get worse.

Kaila and 41 other people liked Manny's review of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner:
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
"If all poetry books were like this, I would never read any prose.

I have a disclaimer. I've never liked anything I've ever read by Stephen King. This book was no different.

For how long it was, this book was extremely light on story. The synopsis completely covers it. Instead, it is a character study, introducing us

Wilkie Collins
“The books - the generous friends who met me without suspicion - the merciful masters who never used me ill!”
Wilkie Collins, Armadale

Tennessee Williams
“What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it's curved like a road through mountains.”
Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire

Virginia Woolf
“I am reading six books at once, the only way of reading; since, as you will agree, one book is only a single unaccompanied note, and to get the full sound, one needs ten others at the same time.”
Virginia Woolf, The Letters of Virginia Woolf: Volume Three, 1923-1928

Douglas Adams
“OK, so ten out of ten for style, but minus several million for good thinking, yeah?”
Douglas Adams
