Not bad. This book is VERY readable, and it seems like Bill wanted to make it as accessible as possible. If you're expecting scientific diatribes on the level of Dawkins, you won't find it here. I enjoyed the book and read it quickly, but I missed th ...more

Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski

Not as original or witty as The Last Wish, but it's a worthy introduction to Ciri, Triss and Yennefer. I suppose Sword of Destiny technically takes place before this book, but it's not required to understand what's going on. I do like that the author ...more

Really fun book. Watney's scientific tangents were surprisingly entertaining, and much more humorous than I expected. I listened to the audiobook, and the narrator (R.C. Bray) was fantastic. The story becomes a bit farfetched towards the end, but it ...more

Killing Floor by Lee Child

Fun and easy to read. Reacher is the working man's hero - he usually comes out on top but it's not always pretty or glamorous. It's refreshing to have a down-to-earth protagonist, and Child's dry wit balances out the gritty action scenes really well. ...more

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
