42 WORD REVIEW:

The anachronistic juxtaposition promises much—a submarine crew, fighting instincts still intact, is resurrected to defend a future civilisation of genetically ordained pacifists from alien invasion—but the premise is too quickly cast a

The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin
"This book has exactly one (1) character that is an actual person, and exactly one (1) character with an actual personality. That's the most succinct way to describe most of my problems with this book, which I wish I could rate higher due to it's o..." Read more of this review »

The Three-Body Problem by Liu Cixin
Rate this book
Clear rating
42 WORD REVIEW:

A slow-moving epic packed with cultural concepts and hard science. Liu Cixin is not an author to leave anything out, and while the ponderous build-up of detail lends import, ultimately The Three-Body Problem reveals itself to be a scen

Three to Conquer by Eric Frank Russell
Rate this book
Clear rating
42 WORD REVIEW:

Russell selectively breeds two SF storylines — alien body snatchers and telepathic outsider — to produce a memorable invasion tale, told in the manner of hardboiled detective fiction (itself melding lone wolf with FBI manhunt). Cited f

42 WORD REVIEW:

While exiled on Earth, the Third Doctor crosses paths with a grounded sea captain. After an uninspiring beginning—a rather forced set-to wherein the Doctor can display his Venusian aikido—this develops into an apposite, rather wistful

How Music Works by David Byrne
How Music Works
by David Byrne (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
42 WORD REVIEW:

As with The Bicycle Diaries, Byrne shows himself to be eloquent, thoughtful, erudite, and surprisingly scholarly in his quest for understanding; in this instance of the practical and philosophical underpinnings of (a career in) music.

Doctor Who by Victor Pemberton
Rate this book
Clear rating
42 WORD REVIEW:

Having opened on a well-staged cliffhanger, Pemberton proceeds with a workmanlike retelling of this lost serial, contented more or less to prosify his own script. Off-screen as on-, his only feat of note is the puckish metatextualising
