About

I review things that I watch, read and play. All sorts of things. What will you find here? It’s a mystery.

I also like to write exhaustive Let’s Read posts taking apart academically surveying genre fiction on a chapter by chapter basis.

    Reading you blog, it appears that we have similar taste concerning fantasy novels. Thus, I would appreciate if you were to post a list of recommended fantasy novels or something. There is so much crap out there, help would be appreciated in finding something worth reading.

      I actually don’t read a whole lot of fantasy outside of what I review or write about on the blog, so I’d honestly struggle to come up with a list.

        Maybe I’m just getting too old for this kind of things. It’s like superheroes. There is so much potential in the concept. But what do they do with it? Super dude fighting super dude. The end.

        Then maybe you can suggest an author, or somebody who can point me in the right direction?

        Anyway, really entertaining blog.

    I see that most of your reviews of fantasy stuff are negative. I am just wondering why you continue to put yourself through the torture?
    I have a strange kind of relationship to fantasy novels. I know the writing is trash but I have some kind of pull to read them. I plough through them at rapid pace and then feel guilty about it. Do you experience something similar?
    Really enjoying your blog by the way.

    One of my friends insisted that I read TNotW. I really hated it and for the most part agree with your evaluation.

    One thing, though. The books aren’t Harry Potter – they’re Circle of Magic. Not the Tamora Pierce series, the Debra Doyle series. It’s like Rothfuss read the first book and said, “This is cool, but all that, like, struggling at learning stuff? So totally stupid. And making real friends is \ overrated. Also being punished for doing things wrong. And power interfering with learning abilities.”

    I’m not saying those books were great, because they weren’t. But they were interesting, fast, and had much more interesting characters. If they had been written for someone older than eight, they would have had a lot more room to develop.

    Anyway, read the first book of that series and tell me Rothfuss didn’t see it too.

    You saved my mental health with your Let’s Read TNoTW, after chapter 78 I couldn’t stand it anymore, and your let’s read was a lot more fun than the book itself.

    Keep it up mate.

    This is absolutely brilliant. A couple weeks ago, I was looking for a review of a Sanderson novel and, man, did I find yours hilarious, almost asphyxiating. But then I lost your blog into the abyss of the internet, never to be found again. Until today! Bookmarked 🙂

    I love your work – every time I need to smile or hear some astute words I discover a new post that sends me into thoughtful contemplation and/or rib-cracking laughter. Keep up the awesome 😀
