I read widely and in most genres but romance and westerns. Here you'll find my reviews since 2007, with a few reviews of previously read books as well.


In 2012, I completed an "authors of the world" challenge, reading a book for every country (and a few other entities) by someone who'd lived there for at least two years. I expect to tag these books by challenge and country in the near future. I'm still refining my list by adding books that better meet my challenge criteria.

Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight - Alexandra Fuller Besides being an interesting memoir, this is a good example of how history can be conveyed and reflected upon through events and exposition by characters. Here, Fuller uses her mother's drunken soliloquies to hold the history of the end of colonial Africa.Earlier sections were more compelling than those in the latter third of the book.
