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?

Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Flynn, though, obviously knows what she is doing, and her competence helps smooth the various hurdles that she seems so fond of tangling her readers in.

Review: Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

Review: Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

It is short, yet memorable. Funny, yet challenging. What more could one need from something with such a delightfully ridiculous cover?

Review: NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

Review: NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

Despite its length, the pages turn quickly, and events move briskly enough to keep the occasional lull brief. Turning the commercialized Christmas season into a playground ripe for terror is no easy task, and Hill proves himself largely capable of the feat.

Review: Room by Emma Donoghue

Review: Room by Emma Donoghue

Think of “Room” as an experiment of sorts. It isn’t a lengthy or overly demanding piece, despite the hesitant progress and rereading that comes with its opening chapters and initially distracting presentation. It is the sort of book that, regardless of one’s final opinion, will stick to the back of the consciousness for days afterward, demanding contemplation and consideration.

Review: Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk

Review: Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk

“Haunted” is not powerful. It is not poignant. It is not smart. It is simply a waste, and I regret reading it wholeheartedly.

Review: 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill

Review: 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill

It is doubtful that one will truly like every piece found here, but so too is it unlikely that one will dislike them all. The important thing to note is that the highs and lows are evenly spread throughout and for the most part mild in their permutations, and should consequently ensure an engaging reading experience from beginning to end.

Meg reviews Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach. It’s all the best bits of scifi with a fantastic cast of characters on top.

Review: 11/22/63 by Stephen King

Review: 11/22/63 by Stephen King

“11/22/63” is not a horror story, nor a science-fiction one. It is not a thriller, nor a romance. It is a great many things, and something worth the time of King fans and general fiction readers alike.
