review 1: The second book in Lydia Millet's trilogy was better. In this, Hal goes to the jungle to rescue his wife's boss - T. from the first book of the trilogy. Hal is a well-written character. He is a boring, predictable, middle-class, bureaucratic IRS worker who suddenly decides to go ...

review 1: The relationships in this book were equal to ones in real life.I felt they could be my neighbors or friends. I did like the mystery of what she discovers towards the end of the book.It leaves me feeling better for the animals(yes even though they are taxidermied).What a find!She...

review 1: I'm a bit perplexed. The writing was so crisply fantastic that I kept waiting for something to happen, trusting the author completely. I was quite drawn in by the use of such acute details to outline a bigger story, but closed the last page in a bit of disbelief that all of it,...

review 1: I went back and forth between thinking "do I like this? I think I like this. Nah I don't think I do. Oh maybe I do, I don't know." Some review on the cover compared the author to Kurt Vonnegut which excited me but I was pretty let down. I really like the basic idea of this story,...

review 1: I heard the story "Sir Henry" read by John Lithgow on the Selected Shorts podcast and loved it (but then, I think John Lithgow is an amazing actor too, so that may have influenced my enjoyment of the story), so thought I would check the whole book out and see how I liked it. The...

review 1: I found the narrator annoying and profoundly unlikeable, but discovered that I cared what happened to her friends and the mermaids, and why things were happening. At the end, I still somewhat disliked the narrator, but felt that she did the best she could and grew a little. I con...

review 1: I recently played a modern role playing game called Fiasco which is sort of an exercise in cooperative storytelling -- you invent characters and then choose relationships or objects or places that bind the characters and give them motivations. As you play the game, you iterative...

review 1: I keep reading YA novels inadvertently (Kindle store makes it pretty easy to do no research), so I figured I should go ahead and read the debut YA effort by an (adult) author I tend to treasure. This was ok, but I was expecting a darker spin on the genre. (And sub-genre; if we're...
