The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

Like many others, I was drawn to read the late Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by all the media buzz; you can only hear the words “literary sensation” and “international bestseller” so many times without getting a little bit curious. I haven’t read much in the crime fiction or mystery genres (unless [...]

Great Work of Time by John Crowley

Consider the following scenario: you are granted one trip to any time in the past. You cannot bring anything with you to the past or back to the future that will not fit in your pocket. You must take extreme care not to alter history or to alter it as little as possible. How would [...]

The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand

The Fountainhead tells the story of architect Howard Roark, the quintessential “ideal man” according to Ayn Rand’s Objectivist philosophy. Roark is ideal because he never settles for mediocrity, never compromises his artistic vision and never fears to break from tradition to forge his own path. These qualities bring difficulties to his career in architecture; his [...]

King of the Road: From Bergen-Belsen to the Olympic Games by Shaul Ladany

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers. Shaul Ladany was certainly an inspiring man, having survived the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp to become a record-holding race walker and distinguished industrial engineer. My interest in the book was Ladany’s experience during World War II and the Holocaust, but only a small portion of the book was [...]

Happy Hour Is for Amateurs: A Lost Decade in the World’s Worst Profession by Philadelphia Lawyer

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers. While this book might arouse interest for the first few chapters, the entertainment value drops off quickly. How many times can the same tweaked story be retold? How many times can one guy relive the same premise with minor alterations in the details? Here’s the gist of [...]

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson

Robert Neville is the sole survivor of a plague that raised the dead and turned the living into vampire-like creatures who are sensitive to light and crave blood. Neville spends his days fortifying his house and gathering supplies, and his nights drinking himself stupid and listening to loud classical music to drown out the taunting [...]

Hitman: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling by Bret Hart

Hitman: My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling describes in great detail the life of one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, as written by himself. Bret Hart paints a vivid picture of living at the legendary Hart house: what it was like to grow up poor in a huge family [...]

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick

Rick Deckard is a bounty hunter on the now sparsely populated planet Earth. His job is to hunt “andys,” slang for androids, that have escaped from the human colonies on Mars and Earth’s Moon. The latest model of cylon, er android, the Nexus-6, is particularly wily; they resemble humans more closely than ever before. Most [...]

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Twilight tells the story of Isabella Swan, a teenager who has decided to move from Phoenix, Arizona to live with her father in the rural town of Forks, Washington. Bella is mostly ambivalent about her new living arrangement but is somewhat put down by the unfamiliar green scenery and the perennial cloudy/rainy weather conditions. Her [...]

Jews, God and History by Max I. Dimont

Jews, God and History is a phenomenal work which undertakes the difficult and tedious task of presenting the 4,000 year history of the Jewish people. Instead of presenting this history from an insulated point of view, author Max I. Dimont shows the history of the Jews in the context of the entire world; in the [...]
