Terry Goodkind’s Confessor (Review)

Here’s the scoop on the final book entitled Confessor in the epic Sword of Truth series. The review of the previous novel in the series, Phantom can be found here. I was in Waterstone’s in the UK on 31 December 2007 to buy a book. I thought I’d buy confessor but at £20 that was […]

Making Money (Pratchett Book Review)

Ah, yes, another in the beloved Discworld series, and I’ve just finished it — Terry Pratchett’s latest adventure. This one features Moist, Vetinari, and cameos by some of the Guards. It’s a direct follow-on to Going Postal. I really liked Going Postal. And I liked this one too. However if you’re looking for Terry’s normal […]

Book Review: Frek and the Elixir and Hero

Ah, well I’ve read two books in the past 24 hours. I’m going to review the first one I read, “Frek and the Elixir” by Rudy Rucker was first up, and it started out great. Original, different, unique, and a bit weird. Frek grows up in a truly odd world written by a clearly odd […]

SuperBad, Vladimir Tod, and The Every Boy (Three Reviews)

Ladies, Gentlemen, Children of All Ages: Today I have just for you a total of THREE, yes THREE reviews in one. First up, we have the review of the film SuperBad, which I had decided not to see based on the lame-ass previews. But the film got great write-ups and a number of people recommended […]

A Plethora of Palabras

Wow. This will be a busy post. I have a lot to say. First, this YouTube Video has me highly stressed. I’ve got a very low opinions of all politicians, but is this little clip (verified, thanks) a racist rant from Hillary Clinton? It’s her but is what she saying racist? Interesting thing to wonder […]

Book of Horrible Questions

The actual link to the Book of Horrible Questions at Amazon which I discuss here: This book is not suitable for minors and contains graphic and sexually explicit material — though none is included in this post. This is from Book of Horrible Questions (ISBN 0-312-20434-5) by Smith and Doe. I highly recommend this book […]

Vlad Taltos return in Dzur in time for Hurricane Ernesto

Ah, before that damned almost-Hurricane Ernesto arrives, I shall bang out one last blog entry. I’ve finished Steven Brust’s latest entry in the Vlad Taltos series, Dzur, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Okay, I’m a Brust fan and this isn’t exactly an entirely unbiased review. However, a few special points to bring up: the ending is […]

In The Merde for Love

I recently read A Year in the Merde by Stephen Clarke — you may click on the link to see my review of that book. I ended up liking it quite a bit, so I ordered the sequel In The Merde For Love. The first book had this quote: “There are lots of French people […]

A Year in the Merde (Stephen Clarke Book Review)

I bought this book a while ago, inexplicably moving it to the bottom of my unread book pile in favour of other books. I just never felt in the mood for it. Rather interesting book outside my normal genre of reading. So, this weekend when I was bored out of my skull, I finally decided […]

Peter and the Shadow Thieves (Review)

Peter and the Shadow Thieves has finally been released and now I’ve read it. If you read and liked the previous entry in this series Peter and the Star Catchers, you’ll also like this book as well. If you didn’t, you just might like this anyway. As prequels to JM Barrie’s famous Peter Pan, they […]
