Book Review: New World by Andrew Motion

It is a brave endeavor to write a sequel or a prequel to existing, classic novels and Mr. Motion does justice to Stevenson’s style and story.

Book Review: Wicked by Gregory Maguire

I found this book mediocre and somewhat disjointed. Yet, I found it strangely interesting – maybe because I think that the idea is brilliant and the overall story is good.

Book Review: The Gunslinger by Stephen King

Mr. King does write an excellent scene and creates a very dramatic world, but the cost was the storyline, which I thought wasn’t very substantial. The story feels more as an homage to Westerns (my favorite genre in films) and the magical world of Camelot. The novel does a great job at it, using the same technology and socioeconomic themes, but what makes a good movie does not necessarily makes a good book.

Book Review: Welcome to Braggsville by T. Geronimo Johnson

Mr. Johnson manages to tackle tough issues with grace and humor using interesting characters and plot twists. This book would make an excellent choice for a book club, as there is much to discuss and address.

Book Review: The Girl with a Clock for a Heart by Peter Swanson

I enjoyed reading this book, the way the story unfolds is interesting and how the protagonist works through it from the past, to present-day, back to the past is skillfully written. I liked how the author managed to makes the reader think the answer to the question is just on the next page, and then he just pulls it from us to be out of reach again.
