Tomorrow and Tomorrow

Review:

This is in many ways an awe­some book. It is not a book I can like, but I can look at it and say, that is one heck of an idea, and the au­thor sure does work it!

The writ­ing is some­how cold, and the main char­ac­ter's ob­ses­sion with his dead wife seems to me more ob­ses­sion than pas­sion. When Par Leon of­fers to "fix him"... well, it seems to me that he *did* need fix­ing.

Lord of Light

Review:

Just awe­some. Some may say the or­ga­ni­za­tion is too dif­fi­cult, with the mid­dle part be­ing 50 years pre­vi­ous the oth­er two.

That is non­sense, it's just a book that asks you to work a bit. You won't kill your­self try­ing.

One of my favourite book­s.

Personal Injuries (Kindle County Legal Thriller #5)

Review:

Some nov­els are all ac­tion and no char­ac­ter build­ing. Scott Tur­ow's nov­els tend to be all char­ac­ter build­ing which works as ac­tion.

The whole "there is no bot­tom with this guy" thing, the bot­tom it­self, the manda­to­ry twist, are all well done, the writ­ing is strange, spe­cial­ly the point of view used (a seem­ing­ly om­ni­scient mi­nor char­ac­ter?), but all is for­giv­en.
