I couldn't even finish this. I just got tired of the story not getting anywhere, with a lot of flitting around to various interesting locales peopled with marginally interesting characters.

Don't get me wrong: the writing is badassed, and Kovacs is s...more

In an interview with an Australian SF magazine, Richard Morgan stated that he dislikes two or three star reviews of his stuff. Sorry about that, but this book is a three star affair. It's involving and interesting enough to where you want to keep rea...more
In the Earth Abides the Flame by Russell Kirkpatrick
"Just like the first book, the maps are incredible. Unfortunately, the rest of book isn't--just like the first book.

Much of this story is like the garbled mess of a first draft or something crunched out during NaNoWriMo. The book can never decide w..." Read more of this review »

Just plain terrible. I didn't make it past page 40 odd.
The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch

This installment spends far too much time in flashback for my liking. It'd be great if Locke Lamora was an engaging character, but he isn't. It's like Lynch is purposely withholding vital or telling information about his protagonist for a future volu...more
Change Your Life by John Bird

Wonderful little book full of marvellous yet common sense advice. This is not your typical self help book that wants you to follow some 12 week plan and so on. Rather, it's a chapter by chapter largely anecdotal recounting of what worked (and didn't...more
J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling has written about an adult Harry Potter in her latest post for her site, Pottermore--but it's not the full-length sequel that fans crave. What favorite character would you most like to read about again in a comeback novel? Vote or write...more
