Book Review: Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie

The very definition of a murder mystery! I'm sure if you looked up mystery in the dictionary, you'd find Agatha Christie there, if not this exact novel as an example. I grew up watching David Suchet's version of Poirot and though I don't even remember which ones I've seen, I remember loving them. It was... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The City and the Stars by Arthur C. Clarke

One of the fathers of modern science fiction - and a definite must-read! When I started this I was worried I would find it much the same way I found Dune - boring and overlong - but this was the complete opposite. Every part of this novel made me want to keep on reading, keep... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Never, ever, read this book. Here's a fun fact: we don't have required reading in Norway (at least we didn't in the 90's where I grew up). That's not to say I didn't have to read things, I just didn't have to read loads of old books from some arbitrary, outdated list. But I'm trying... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Storm of War by Bryan R. Saye

As an archaeologist I'm always fascinated by books and authors who dare play with history. Whether it is in fantastical worlds that only draw inspirations from our own, like Tolkien; historical mysteries and conspiracies like those woven by Dan Brown; or those incredible tales set in a more accurate past like Conn Iggulden. No matter... Continue Reading →

Read Indie – Find Gems! Book Review: IronBlood by C. H. Knyght

One of the best things about being an indie author is becoming a part of an indie author community. Not only do you meet like-minded souls, make friends for life, and learn to develop your craft and art, but occasionally you come across gems that other members of that community produce. This is one of... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Animal Farm by George Orwell

A definite must read — especially in this day and age. A few years ago, the only thing I knew about George Orwell was that he'd written 1984, and that it was about the government surveilling its citizens or something. So when I came across a cheap paperback copy of it in Oslo airport a... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Fall Of Babel

It's suddenly over and now I don't know what to do with myself. Josiah Bancroft's Books Of Babel series is fantastic. If you could only read one more series of books before the world ended and you're into fantasy steampunk, then I'd give you this. It's the kind of book series that will be remembered...
