This book is an example of where I think twice before reading, I started it for the list of people interviewed as it's some of my all time heroes, like McKenna, Leary, John Lilly, Allen Ginsburg, Robert Anton Wilson etc... But I hesitated because often the questions asked and the motives for a bo...

This was an odd tale, and not what I'd expected -- I didn't realize that Jolley was known for the macabre (well, maybe I would have if I'd read the cover blurb first...) Though this novel is short, it contains a great deal of texture. Weekly's backstory is fully drawn, as is her character. She wo...

Although I loved the wonderful Skye O'Malley by Ms. Small, I had begun to shy away from any more of Ms. Small's books because, frankly, I was sick of Skye's many children and grandchildren. I'm gratified to see that Ms. Small has gotten away from the O'Malley saga and has turned her attention to ...

MENTE APERTA A QUALSIASI IMMAGINEE anche quella sera, mentre era rimasto fermo e terrorizzato sulle scale, con le dita e il palmo della mano che stringevano la ringhiera, come per ottenere maggiore silenzio dal corpo immobile…Non c’è niente da fare, quando leggo parole così, mi perdo e mi esalto,...

The premise of this book is amazing: In the Middle Ages, it was believed that the Roman poet Vergil was a magician. What if he really had been?As you can probably tell, I think this is the best idea for a plot ever.Set in a strange alternate Europe (I am not sure what time period it is supposed t...

UTTERLY DISAPPOINTED !Oh Colin! the plot looked very promising and gripping but it just lost its charm midway through the book. The starting 150-200 pages are as interesting as it gets. But the moment Lindsay and his rescuers reach Yugoslavia,the book gets intolerable. The fight scenes were borin...

I don't know how true these memories are, but they are my memories, so they are true enough for this. Around 34 or 35 years ago, I went into my elementary school library and talked to Mrs. Dogleash (surely Mrs. Dalgliesh, like the famous Liverpool footballer and manager, but we always thought of ...
