This book could be subtitled "The West's Betrayal of Draža Mihailović" or "How The West Sold Eastern Europe To The Communists For The Next Forty-Odd Years" or "How Churchill Wasn't That Great Anyway," but I digress. This book tells the story of the ( ...more

Liars & Thieves by Stephen Coonts

This book was mediocre—I'd give it 2.5 stars, but I'm rounding up because I'm feeling generous today (I'm floating about in a good mood because I passed a certification exam yesterday, YES!). The book started off intriguing enough, with American spec ...more

Strategy Strikes Back by Max Brooks
"Full review to come. A good collection of essays that use events and characters from the Star Wars franchise to illuminate different aspects of real world strategic thinking. As with any collection of essays some were very good and some were not s..." Read more of this review »

Excellent book overall! I read The Inferno in high school and always meant to read the rest of Dante's The Divine Comedy but never got around to it until now. This translation is great and has a ton of explanatory notes, all of which are necessary to ...more
The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware
"This book is like a long slow meandering drive through vast fields where the scenery never changes. I’d heard so much hype about this book but, to me, it just didn’t deliver. I think the author tried too hard to give a gothic feel while trying to..." Read more of this review »

I didn’t really care for this. Weak story, too much telling and not enough showing, and characters and plot that I had trouble caring about. At least I didn’t buy this one, since I won it in a Goodreads giveaway.

Force of Nature by Jane Harper

Clear rating
Decent follow-up to the first book in this series, The Dry. I think I liked this one better than the first one! I just wish Harper would develop Aaron's character more. I like him, but he comes across as rather flat to me. I think there's a lot of po ...more

The Collected Stories of Isaac Babel by Isaac Babel

I can't really say I enjoyed this book. I had to read three stories in it for a Russian literature class in college: "My First Goose," "The Story of My Dovecote," and "Crossing the Zbrucz." I now understand why my professor chose only those three: I ...more

“For if one is remembered by a friend, one is never truly gone. —”
Timothy Zahn, Star Wars: Thrawn

“Sometimes a commander’s decisions must be made without regard for how they will be perceived,” Thrawn said. “What matters is that the commander does what is necessary for victory.”
Timothy Zahn, Star Wars: Thrawn

“But Mount Tantiss was gone, destroyed by agents of the New Republic and C'baoth's own madness and treason. And Grand Admiral Thrawn was dead.

And the Empire was dying.”
Timothy Zahn, Specter of the Past

Timothy Zahn
“You served too long under Lord Vader, Captain. I Have no qualms about accepting a useful idea merely because it wasn't my own. My position and ego are not at stake here.”
Timothy Zahn, Heir to the Empire
