Rate this book
Clear rating
This book does a fine job of continuing the story, but it's a continuation of the previous several books, not of the series -- there are probably at least half a dozen books worth of story between the end of the series and this book. If you've read a ...more

Hit Me With Your Pet Shark by Charles Grosvenor

Clear rating
I've always enjoyed "misheard lyrics" compilations, in spite of the fact that they're always a mixed bag; there will be some that make no sense, and you can't for the life of you imagine how they got fro point a to point b (from this book, for exampl ...more

Geronimo's Legacy by Edwin Weiss
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is not, by any stretch, the worst book I've ever read; I've read some doozies. The basic storyline had some potential, as did the characters. But the dialogue is by far the worst, most stilted and artificial that I have ever run across in any bo ...more

The Eichmann Trial by Deborah E. Lipstadt
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book does a very thorough, very even-handed job of discussing the subject of the trial of Adolph Eichmann in the early '60s. The author leaves no doubt as to her opinion on the various contentious issues raised in relation to the trial, but she ...more

The Ascent of George Washington by John Ferling
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is an extremely capable and well-written biography of Washington. It basically focuses on the aspect of his political and social ambitions, and doesn't give much depth to his personal life, so a look at other more general biographies might well ...more

The Missing by Una McCormack

Clear rating
This is one of the better offerings in the DS9 ouvre. Good pacing, interesting plot, familiar characters handled well, enough new characters to keep things interesting, not so many as to overwhelm the familiar. New characters interesting and well-dev ...more

Rate this book
Clear rating
This book may not be long enough to give a truly in-depth, detailed account of all that one might want to know about foxes. But it gives a great deal of information for the beginner, along with some marvelous pictures. If you are a professional natur ...more

The Jackal's Trick by John Jackson Miller
Rate this book
Clear rating
Like book one of the series, this is a perfectly adequate Next Generation story; it is reasonably well-written and edited, the characters are handled well, the plot moves well and is not TOO implausible, and it doesn't even suffer too badly from "mid ...more

The Pun Also Rises by John Pollack
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book provides a historical perspective and general discussion of the pun and other related bits of word-play. It is not without interest, but the author spends an inordinate amount of time bemoaning the fact that puns don't get the respect that ...more
