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.

A Different Kind of Boy: A Father's Memoir about Raising a Gifted Child with Autism - Daniel Mont In some ways as much a father's autobiography as a memoir of his son, this is a smart and well-written account of both a boy and a family affected by autism. I've read a lot of personal stories about autism spectrum disorders (both by the parents and by the children with autism) and Mont does a wonderful job of capturing the complexity of the situation and his own emotions. It helps that he as skillful writer as well as an involved father.
