The Mongoliad: Book One (Foreworld, #1)

Review:

This, al­though writ­ten in col­lab­o­ra­tion by half a dozen au­thors, feels like a Neal Stephen­son book, and I will treat it as such. That means im­pos­si­bly high stan­dard­s, and it does not sur­pass all its test­s, but is pret­ty close in many.

In­cred­i­bly de­tailed, and *un­der­stand­able* fight sce­nes? Check.

Ran­dom words that send you to the dic­tio­nary? Check. (Why use ver­st?)

A page turn­er? Check.

In­ter­est­ing, mys­te­ri­ous char­ac­ter­s? Check. (I was half ex­pect­ing Enoch Root to show up: he does not)

I loved it and can't wait for book too.

Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir

Review:

Fun book, but the writ­ing style (deranged in­ter­nal mono­logue) is a bit tire­some. More en­joy­able on small dos­es.

How­ev­er, it has some great part­s, like the child­hood sto­ries, and there is a heart­break­ing part in the mid­dle I don't even want to write about.

Embassytown

Review:

This is the first time a Miéville book has bored me.

It goes to great lengths about lin­guis­tic­s, which is not some­thing that in­ter­ests me, but al­so, the in­ten­tion­al vague­ness of ev­ery­thing, how
noth­ing is de­scribed, made it hard to read or re­late to.
