review 1: I have not actually ready every chapter in this book. It's been more of reading the ones that sounded interesting to me at the time. However I am buying this book because I do want to read the chapters I've skipped. One could read the book straight through -- but that kinda...

review 1: I would not have given the Hugo to this novel but it is an enjoyable read. In a way it is a gigantic fan service as the book is about the diary of a 15 year old welsh girl that reads a ton of fantasy and science fiction. There are some fantasy elements but they are very light. Th...

review 1: This was so close to five stars, but I felt the ending was a bit rushed. Up until then I really enjoyed this chilling illustration of the abuses of power in this alternate England. I thought Elvira was a realistic character - unconcerned with the erosion of civil rights under t...
