Review: The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

Review: The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

There’s sabotage, scheming, and various twists enough for the bloodthirstiest and most action-hungry, and things end in a satisfying enough way to leave the future open to plenty of possibility without being too open-ended. None of it is truly new or unique (in comparison to the setting, anyway), with plenty of reliance on those familiar rehashings of the dangers of overconfidence, the importance of friends, and so on. But all of it (generally speaking) has been done before, right?

Like all the other Rainbow Rowell books, this one had loads of potential, but failed to live up to the hype.

Review: The Sculptor by Scott McCloud

Review: The Sculptor by Scott McCloud

But there comes a point where the commonplace becomes flat. It doesn’t excite. It is not “bad” or of poor quality, but rather creates a wall between the object and its audience, able to be appreciated for its theoretical strengths but not its emotional punch.
