The Heart of the Matter by Graham Greene

This turned out to be a very Graham Greene summer. There are plenty more to read, but devouring three Greenes in a short span revealed his major strength: entwining plot and character, so that a story drives inexorably toward its conclusion as a ...more

Goodbye to All That by Robert Graves

Clear rating
An event like The Great War involved and destroyed so many lives that a handful are bound to be great writers. We're lucky if some of those writers were spared and luckier still if one of them chooses to document those harrowing experiences for ...more

The End of the Affair by Graham Greene
Rate this book
Clear rating
I was away for the summer and did a lot of reading without updating here on Goodreads. Now the backlog is pretty big, and I keep putting off writing my reviews. So what I think I'm gonna do is write quick, paragraph-long reviews of the books I've ...more

Babel-17 by Samuel R. Delany
Rate this book
Clear rating

Rate this book
Clear rating
Another novel that proves China Miéville's mastery of genre fiction -- really, of any kind of fiction. Embassytown is exquisitely, confidently drawn and exhilarating, a thought-provoking polemic on the power of language and story. It's also a ...more

The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
Rate this book
Clear rating
I've been traveling, so I've finished a couple books without updating here. Usually I like to write a review directly after I've finished, when everything is still fresh in my mind, but I just didn't have the time (or the internet connection). No ...more
