Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy) by Mira Grant
Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy)

MDS, November 9, 2013

Zombies! a fast paced novel, set in the future, compelling characters and a fairly sensible explanation of the cause of a world wide zombie pandemic beginning in 2014. Love the idea that responsible respectable journalism is in the hands of bloggers in 2039. I read the whole trilogy with great enjoyment.

Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson
Alif the Unseen

Wow. This is an amazing read: religion, programming, Arabia, love, djinns, geekery, good, magic, evil, revolution, courage, loss and triumph. It is all here, separate threads woven into a fascinating whole. You will like these characters, even if they aren't all quite human.

The Dog Stars by Peter Heller
The Dog Stars

MDS, January 1, 2013

Great story, beautifully written in a unique style. This post-apocalyptic novel has moments of soaring beauty, great love, heartbreaking loss, fear and violence--and in the end, hope. Peter Heller, please write Book Two...I really want more of these characters.

The Dog Stars by Peter Heller

If you've read Peter Heller's nonfiction, you know he's a solid, skilled writer. After you read The Dog Stars, you will know that he is an amazingly talented and gifted author. This is a wonderful book. Yes, there is post-apocalyptic violence, turmoil, and heartbreak. And yes, the world ended with a whimper, but that's followed by plenty of bang. Amidst the despair and struggle, life still has its small joys, growth, tenderness. The style of writing suits the story wonderfully. It's almost prose poetry. I finished it yesterday; I think I'll read it again today.

Across the Nightingale Floor: Tales of the Otori by Lian Hearn
Across the Nightingale Floor: Tales of the Otori

MDS, June 22, 2012

Fascinating first book in an amazing fantasy series set in ancient Japan. The characters are mesmerizing and the setting is rich and detailed. Across the Nightingale Floor is so beautifully written. It pulls you into a different world, a different century, a different culture. I read this, loved it, bought the other 3 books in the series--and enjoyed every word of each.
