I highly enjoyed the Magicians trilogy. Even though the end didn't work perfectly for me, the tone and mood of the series made for a unique take on Narnia-esque fiction.

"Perhaps the most powerful given the actual worldwide socio-political climate." ???? Seriously?

2018-02-11T09:50:07.192-05:00

hoping the upcoming film adaptation is one of those rare cases where the movie is better than the book, because I remember the book being a very safe and uninteresting story dressed in a culturally fun skin.

I finished Spoonbenders this morning on the train and agree entirely with your review. Nothing like closing a novel and feeling like it was entirely worth the time you spent reading it. The eclectic family reminded me of the Bluth family from Arrested Development as everyone was fully fleshed-out and given a real story with depth and heart. Just a great read all around, and I have to wonder if someone hasn't put the book into someone like Wes Anderson's hands to see if he'd be interested in adapting it to film

2018-02-05T14:09:39.934-05:00

This one looks amazing. I like the idea of the short stories in it. Ill be giving it a try next. Right now I am reading Mark Speed's Doctor How series and I am loving it. So great, clever and funny. The hook is "What if the BBC got it wrong", hitting on Dr. Who obviously. This is what makes it so good! His info is at http://markspeed.co.uk/, well worth the look!

2018-02-05T01:29:13.150-05:00

it's not a good place to start. I've been reading it for like 8 months, it's not bad but it's very slow reading. If you like detective style SF then start with City and the City, if you like wild and weird start with Perdido Street Station. The Scar is my favorite SFF title ever, it's like wild and weird Moby Dick. King Rat may have been the funnest read of the bunch of China Mieville titles mentioned above.

I've read the Night's Dawn trilogy three times in 20 years. I envy you the pleasure of reading them for the first time. - Ian.

You should provide a link to your review on some of these. I have never ready anything by China Mieville before. Is this book a good place to start?

Really??

I always thought the Mandel books came after. Oh well. . .

2018-01-28T16:12:18.966-05:00

Wow, this series is still going on? I really liked the first book when it came out, but eventually got frustrated with the series and gave up around book 4 or 5, around 20 years ago.



Your rating system is awful.

Your rating system is awful.

2018-01-20T20:09:51.789-05:00

Wow, I remember buying this waaaay back in the day. Just checked my copy - 1989, as old as Tay-Tay. My last year in high school.
Didn't mind it, an interesting spin on the werewolf genre. 8/10.

2018-01-19T23:50:10.667-05:00

Really good interview. I will certainly give his books a read. I am also very impressed with his integrity in regards to Trump. I think it is fair to say that most people with intelligence that sit anywhere on the political spectrum have reason to be fervently opposed. It is refreshing to see an experienced military and police professional take a stand.

Huh, did not expect this at all. Odd choices were made it seems.

2018-01-18T12:01:50.443-05:00

"There are other aspects that might make existing fans reticent, chief among them the relatively small size of this new work and the expensive hardcover price tag attached to it."

^^^So much this.

Even on the strength of his previous work, and that I enjoy his social media presence, I still almost didn't pre-order. I did do so, but a lot of others won't. I really hope to enjoy it.

2018-01-10T12:06:16.288-05:00

"Deserves the highest possible recommendation!" "9/10"
Does not compute.

2018-01-04T01:28:22.765-05:00

Couldn’t disagree more. I thought Cibola Burn was the best of the series, and everything after it has been running on fumes. Persepolis was incredibly dull imo.



Awesome, thanks Pat!

2018-01-03T15:22:52.333-05:00

Awesome, thanks Pat!

" It is, quite simply, an outstanding work of literary imagination that will endure for generations"
is this a joke ?

2017-12-25T19:27:59.926-05:00

I am so susprised at the amount the conversation (Hate) that this movie is getting. It's a Star Wars. A space opera.

definition: a novel, movie, or television program set in outer space, typically of a simplistic and melodramatic nature.

I was entertained by it, and I'll see it again.
