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.

Homer & Langley: A Novel (Audio) - E.L. Doctorow, Arthur Morey Read this as an alternative history of the Collyer brothers. Not unlike Star Trek (2009), the main characters wind up where they were before and similar to themselves, though dislocated in time. I'm sure Doctorow had great fun coming up with explanations for the inexplicable--why so many typewriters in the house? Why the windows boarded up? As always, Doctorow's prose is lyrical and evocative.
