Book Review: Lie Down With Lions by Ken Follett

Well this was actually terrible. I probably should have stopped reading this around the 30% mark, when I first got a hunch. Unfortunately, I have a tendency to want to see things through, and I really had my hopes out for Follett because the person who gave me this book also gave me a copy... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Night of The Swarm by Robert V.S. Redick

The most incredible fantasy story I've ever had the pleasure of reading - and now it's done. I've had a difficult relationship with this series. I think I mentioned at least once or twice in all my previous reviews of Book 1, Book 2 and Book 3, how difficult I found it to grasp Redick's... Continue Reading →

Book Review: A Short History Of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

An engaging, funny, and comprehensive guide to almost everything you need to know about the world. I went into this on a few colleague's recommendation, never having heard about Bill Bryson before.

It's been a wild ride across alien planets, meeting with alien races, forming friendships, romantic ties, and rivalries, but most of all... Continue Reading →

The Chaos of a Life and Finally Finding Time To Read A Book Again! – Book Review: The Terror by Dan Simmons

It's been a weird few weeks. Ever since I moved back home from the Arctic at the start of the month, days have been blending together. I feel like I've had far too much to do and nothing at all at the same time. Like everything has changed, yet it's all the same. I've tried... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Rats and the Ruling Sea by Robert V.S. Redick

The most intricate, perplexingly detailed and well-constructed fantasy you'll ever read. This is the second book in the The Chathrand Voyage series, and it's just as good as the first book. The story follows the lives of several passengers on the massive ship, Chathrand, and details their adventures as they are pulled into a multi-leveled... Continue Reading →
