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.


Hallucinations - Oliver Sacks Migraine - Oliver Sacks

 Enjoyable, as Sacks always is, but more episodic than some, with modular chapters that don't really build on each other. Sacks here identifies and characterizes a variety of processes, ailments, damage, and poisons that can lead to different forms of hallucination (with a delusion or two thrown in for good measure). Sacks references many of his previous books; for a fun look at how his storytelling style has developed, read with his first book, the outdated but scholarly and highly annotated Migraine.
