Book Review: The Silver Music Box by Mina Baites

Ms. Baites created an interesting narrative, combining it with informative information and fascinating characters

Book Review: The Stowaway: A Young Man’s Extraordinary Adventure to Antarctica by Laurie Gwen Shapiro

A story of adventure and a fascinating tale brought to life by a talented writer.

Book Review: Bruce Lee Words of the Dragon: Interviews and Conversations 1958-1973 edited by John Little

The strength of this book, I felt, was in the interesting footnotes the editor provided at the end of each chapter

Book Review: Beartown by Fredrik Backman

This is a tense and ugly story, but it sucks you in.

Book Review: The Christian Fallacy: The Real Truth About Jesus and the Early History of Christianity by Paul McGrane

I really enjoyed that the author didn’t just look at historical contexts, but also at political and social contexts at the time the texts were written.

Book Review: Hiddensee by Gregory Maguire

I did, however, enjoy the structure of the story, much like the old German fairytales many of us grew on.

Book Review: The Lies About Money by Ric Edelman

I’m not trying to be a financial professional by any means, but I’m just hoping to educate myself on the subject enough to either make informed decisions, or enough to ask the right questions when opportunities present themselves.

Graphic Novel Review: James Bond: Black Box by Benjamin Percy

James Bond: Black Box by Benjamin Percy (art by Rapha Lobosco) is a solid entry into Dynamite’s Bond library even though the plot is weak and predictable, but well written

Graphic Novel Review: James Bond: Felix Leiter by James Robinson

I was excited from the first time I head the plans to make a standalone Felix Leiter story. With all the trepidations and pre-judgements that came with the announcement, only one thought, and one thought only, was on my mind – about damn time!

Book Review: Artemis by Andy Weir

Much like the previous book, this novel takes full advantage of geek culture, and border-line infantile jokes (both of which I enjoyed). But don’t let this dismay you, the science in this book is absolutely fascinating and ranges from overall theories to nuts and bolts (literally, there are whole pages on how valves and welding work in space).
