Master Assassins
by Robert V.S. Redick

Master Assassins is probably a good first book in what may be a very intriguing series, but I’ll never know for sure since it was a DNF for me.

Book Reviews

Lord of the Isles
by David Drake

The pacing is all wrong on this one, with characters that are flung at the reader and just as quickly tossed away.

Book Reviews

To Fall Among Vultures
by Scott Warren

A one rocket bomb. I couldn't finish To Fall Among Vultures due to the erratic writing, flat characters, and confusing storytelling.

Book Reviews

Faithless
by Graham Austin-King

Some people might like this book, but I didn't. Flat writing and flatter characters means a DNF in my book. I do love the cover, though.

Book Reviews

Artemis
by Andy Weir

Readers of The Martian will want to love this book. I did. Unfortunately, I came away disappointed. Unsophisticated writing and juvenile humor made Artemis a slog which I finally had to give up on.

Book Reviews

Nemo Rising
by C. Courtney Joyner

As the continuation of Jules Verne's classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, it's depressing to consider how great of a novel Nemo Rising could have been. Unfortunately, my only recommendation here is to give it a pass on your reading list.

Movie Reviews

Kong: Skull Island

A movie that starts with potential but fizzles out so fast there isn't even much entertainment value left at the end.

Book Reviews

Wit'ch Fire
by James Clemens

It's never a good sign when a book starts with an infodump. Wit'ch Fire was a DNF for me.
