I Recently Finished Reading: Rise of the Huntress

I mentioned in my review of the previous book that the larger story of the series was moving a little slowly for my taste. I'm happy to say that I feel like that has changed with Rise of the Huntress. This installment continues to keep the Spook's entourage away from the county. The war that … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Rise of the Huntress

I Recently Finished Reading: Gateway

I first read Gateway when I was working through the Hugo Award winners. I didn't remember much of the main story, but I vividly remembered the climax of the book. Having the knowledge of what was going to happen while reading it this time really changed some things. The premise of the book is really … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Gateway

I Recently Finished Reading: The Tombs of Atuan

It's been a long time since I've read The Tombs of Atuan, and I remember really enjoying it. On this read through, I found myself better understanding the significance of the story, but i didn't enjoy it as much. The bulk of the plot revolves around Aha, a young girl believed to be the reincarnation … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: The Tombs of Atuan

I Recently Finished Reading: The Night Circus

My wife has been asking me to read The Night Circus for months. It's one of her favorite books, but I tend to prefer more fast paced stories, so I've been putting it off. Over the last few weeks, however, I've been in the mood for something slower, so it seemed like a good time … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: The Night Circus

I Recently Finished Reading: Have Space Suit—Will Travel

It's been a while since I've read a Heinlein youth novel, and this one's been in my queue for a long time. I actually started reading this book about 6 months ago, but never got very far into it before I put it down and picked up something else. The beginning is pretty slow and … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Have Space Suit—Will Travel

I Recently Finished Reading: A Wizard of Earthsea

I've read this book before, but I was in the mood for something a little familiar (not too familiar, it's probably been 15-ish years). I think it may be my favorite LeGuin book. For the most part, I don't really care for LeGuin's style. I think her writing is a bit too literary for my … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: A Wizard of Earthsea

I Recently Finished Reading: The Marvelous Land of Oz

While I've read The Wizard of Oz several times over the years, this was just the second time I had read The Marvelous Land of Oz. The thing that struck me most while reading it was how it was both sexist and progressive at the same time. One of the key plot points in the … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: The Marvelous Land of Oz
