  • Book Review: ‘The Maze Runner’

    Posted Sunday, March 3rd, 2013 03:29 pm GMT -4 by
    James Dashner’s ‘The Maze Runner’ is the first of a four-part series set in a grim dystopian future, but the most intriguing part of this book is that none of the characters know that. Each of the characters — all teenage men — arrive via one-way elevator to...

  • Book Review: ‘Last Days’

    Posted Sunday, February 24th, 2013 05:38 pm GMT -4 by
    When I initially received Last Days by Adam Neville, I was completely skeptical from the book’s description. How could they pull off a book in a “Blair Witch Project” style setting? There’s no way it could plausibly be that interesting or really drag you into the story...

    Posted Monday, February 18th, 2013 11:00 am GMT -4 by
    Not to completely discredit myself, but the thing I liked most about the movie ‘Twilight’ was how screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg took all the things wrong with the book — sluggish pacing, a too-accurate portrayal of a high schooler’s repetitive daily routine, mediocre...
  • Book Review: ‘Android Karenina’

    Posted Sunday, February 17th, 2013 04:15 pm GMT -4 by
    When Quirk Classic came up with the idea of ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies‘ they probably had no idea how great of an idea the ‘classic’ novels might be. It spawned a few sequels, ‘Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters‘ and also this little...
