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.

The Glass Palace - Amitav Ghosh A sprawling novel of Burma and India, encompassing multiple generations. It is less about character than it is about telling history at the level of the character. This can decrease identification, but allows the reader to attend to big currents and patterns. The audiobook was well-narrated.
