Review: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

What’s left, then, is a sequel that tries to do many things and fails at nearly all of them. It is both too self-contained to feel a proper continuation of a preexisting story and ongoing series, and too listless to work as a memorable piece of fiction in its own right. It is both too open-ended in regards to some plotlines and too conclusive when it comes to others. It presents a façade of evolution by lazily pushing forward uninteresting threads and finalizing ones that should have gone on whilst bringing the most important enigmas to a frustrating stasis.

Review: Taste of Darkness by Maria V. Snyder

Review: Taste of Darkness by Maria V. Snyder

Kat Kennedy reviews Taste of Darkness and explains why she couldn’t finish. Ie. Too many feels.

Review: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Review: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

For all of that, though, “The Book Thief” is at its core a story, and it is a good one. It touched me despite its unsettling context and emotional puppetry. Zusak is an adept writer who uses words to great effect, and I love what he has done here.

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.
