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.

Our Man in Havana - Graham Greene, Christopher Hitchens Who knew that Greene could be so amusing? This is a satire of spy novels and a farce. Since the protagonist encodes fictional intelligence, it would be particularly amusing to read in conjunction with something like Stephenson's Cryptonomicon or Sagan's Contact, where the messages are urgently important.
