Emergency by Neil Strauss
Rate this book

I didn't know what to expect when I picked this up, since I hadn't heard of Neil Strauss before. I assumed some useful food for thought was tucked behind the great cover design. However, this was off to a slow start. The idea of discarding the book b ...more

Zero Cool by John Lange
Rate this book
Clear rating
A ridiculous pulp novel with some noir vibes here and there. Certainly not Crichton's best, and doesn't really count as literature, but it's not so bad. Fine for spending 2-3 hours waiting to board an airplane. I'm surprised this was never made into ...more

Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
Rate this book
Clear rating
A lot of people have called this a life-changing book with a profound impact on their life. As one might suspect, it's difficult for any book to live up to such hype. Especially when this isn't novel-length to begin with. My copy claimed to be 128 pa ...more

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Rate this book
Clear rating
Despite the small scope, there are plenty of imaginative elements in this fairy tale, and it's worth a read.

I think I would recommend the audiobook over the physical/digital book. The writing isn't as colorful as I expected, partly because of the fi

High-Rise by J.G. Ballard
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a brisk read - only about 200 pages. If you're a fast reader, you can get through High-Rise in one or two days even without much free time. That doesn't necessarily make it an easy read, however. As a commentary on human nature there's unplea ...more

This seems to be a polarizing book for some readers, and I can see why.

Pros:
- Good writing. The prose flows nicely and it's been well-edited. Some people find it tedious, other people find it beautiful, and it's objectively well-executed.
- No obviou

Sufficiently Advanced Magic by Andrew Rowe
Rate this book
Clear rating
This was my first experience with the "litRPG" subgenre so I didn't know what to expect. The book is not art, but it's compelling. The worldbuilding is one of the stronger points. Sufficiently Advanced Magic isn't a 5-star story, but it kept me inter ...more

Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey
Rate this book
Clear rating
Not as much of a space opera as I expected, but this is still a good book. It has an interesting story with decent pacing and realistic enough characters. Leviathan Wakes is a good slab of genre fiction, and at nearly 600 pages, it's certainly worth ...more

Agatha Christie
“There was a moment when I changed from an amateur to a professional. I assumed the burden of a profession, which is to write even when you don't want to, don't much like what you're writing, and aren't writing particularly well.”
Agatha Christie, Agatha Christie: An Autobiography
