Votan and Other Novels

Review:

This is a good book, and a long book. It's three book­s, which are pret­ty dif­fer­en­t, and I am not sure the idea of group­ing them was *great* but hey, it work­s.

I got to it via a rec­om­men­da­tion by Neil Gaiman, and the first two are a lot of fun.

The third one ... is not. It's good, in a to­tal­ly dif­fer­ent way, and I feel hap­py to have read it even though it was so ... un­pleas­ant to read? It made me feel un­pleas­ant things a lot of the time? But that's ok.

The Plastic Magician (The Paper Magician #4)

Review:

A short and light read, in the same world as the pa­per ma­gi­cian and its se­quel­s, but not con­nect­ed to that sto­ry.

Some­times you want some­thing chal­leng­ing. Some­times a light, airy thing is good.

An Innocent Client (Joe Dillard, #1)

Review:

For a change of pace, I read this. I had not read le­gal fic­tion for a long time!

It's ok, fun, not bad­ly writ­ten, even if the main char­ac­ter is:

* A spe­cial forces vet­er­an
* A child abuse sur­vivor
* The best lawyer in town
* In the process of re­tir­ing to be­come a teach­er
* Mar­ried to a gor­geous dancer
* Gor­geous
* Par­ent of a dancer
* Par­ent of a MLB prospect kid
* Work­ing off his 10-acre prop­er­ty over­look­ing a lake
* On­ly work­ing death penal­ty cas­es
* Moral­ly con­flict­ed

Be­cause re­al­ly, there is such a thing as too much back­sto­ry. On the oth­er hand, the plot is kin­da thin.

So, fun short read.

Ad­di­tion:

* His moth­er is dy­ing
* His sis­ter is a drug ad­dict who has stolen from him

I am sure I am for­get­ting some­thing else.
