I Recently Finished Reading: Golden Son

This book sucked me in so much faster than the last one I read. Golden Son is a fast paced book that does a lot more than many middle books. Often, it seems like middle books are all about positioning the characters for the finale rather than about really advancing the story. This book is … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Golden Son

Comic Book Movie Rewatch: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

I really enjoy movies based on comic books, whether they be old like Superman, or new like Wonder Woman. Every time I watch one (or re-watch one) I write up a post with my thoughts.

It wasn't hard to see that the author was inexperienced, as this book used a lot of … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Monster Hunter International

I Recently Finished Reading: Gatefather

I thought this book was a little confusing. The series really could have ended about a third of the way through this book. (Orson Scott Card even admitted as much in the author's afterword.) That meant that the last two-thirds of the book felt more like an extended epilogue rather than a part of the … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Gatefather

I Recently Finished Reading: Digital Heretic

Its taken me a while to gather my thoughts on this book. It was okay. I thought the writing had really improved over the first book, but I don't think the story was better. There was one big problem with the book. It didn't feel like the story went anywhere. A lot of pieces moved … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Digital Heretic
