Don't judge a book by its cover. This book has a nice cover. Under the dust jacket, there is a black cover with pretty metallic blue print, and some lovely illustrations within. But, as the author says in his endnote, this book isn't for everyone. Sa ...more

This is a comic book, but it's also a memoir of sorts. The author is a serious runner who has written about his reasons and motivation for running, and gives suggestions on how you can get out there as well. Sure, he writes in quite an amusing manner ...more

The third and final (sort of) book in this series. Although I liked it, it didn't enthrall me the way the previous books did. I found this to drag on a bit too much; the 760 pages could have easily been edited to 400 or 500. It did wrap up the series ...more

How had I not heard of this author/series before now?! I loved this book and look forward to reading the sequels. Epic fantasy stuff in a world where a few select people have the Skill, which allows them a sort of telepathy with others, and some poss ...more

MASH by Richard Hooker

I grew up with the M*A*S*H tv show and loved it, as well as the movie. So it was only natural that I read the book they were all based upon. Prior to reading this I hadn't realized the author was himself an Army surgeon in Korea during the war, and w ...more

Although this is a highly-acclaimed fantasy book I didn't get into it the way some others have. It has a rich an d complex plot, but at the same time I thought the story just dragged on too much. If these 766 pages had been edited to a tight 400 or 5 ...more

Bridge of Birds by Barry Hughart
Rate this book
Clear rating
While classified as "fantasy," this novel is not the "swords and sorcerers" sort of fantasy one might expect, but rather, a novel that takes place in a mildly fantastical world. I picked it up because it was highly regarded, and while I don't feel th ...more
