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 Android's Dream - John Scalzi,  Wil Wheaton When I was about two chapters in, I was a little worried that, like Pratchett, Scalzi isn't someone I find funny. Fortunately, the book grew on me as I stuck with it. The story is somewhat picaresque, similar to a little too much candy, geared to typical boy-humor (much farting, for example). Characters sound and for the most part behave the same as each other. Douglas Adams plus farts plus an amusing conclusion, even if parts are predictable.
