reviews

Reviews are the m:n mapping table between books and shelves. This means books that are just on your to-read shelf still have a review, connecting the book with your shelf. I don't make the rules.

1249274581 The Fuller Memorandum 7149287 rixx 41972609 5 Just a review to remind myself of why I liked this book:<br /><br />The Fuller Memorandum details the break-up of a cultist organization and a Laundry leak, we also get to know TEAPOT and Angleton's story. We see Mo and Bob as a married couple, and Bob on his way *up*. Good work, to my mind a generic Laundry book if there ever was one. Nice read nonetheless. 2015-04-08T06:48:53-07:00 2015-08-04T05:52:06-07:00   2015-07-22T00:00:00-07:00

1249274995 The Rhesus Chart 18211295 rixx 41972609 4 Just a review to remind myself what happened here and why I liked the book.<br /><br />We meet Mhari again! Bob is amazingly grown-up about it. Everybody realizes they get played early on … and still: people die. A lot of them. Including Angleton. Because their opponent is a century-old PHANG.<br /><br />Written very smoothly, Stross is really in his element here. Feels effortless, and is easy to read. 2015-04-08T06:49:23-07:00 2016-05-07T16:04:04-07:00   2015-08-04T05:44:23-07:00

1249283167 Catch-22 168668 rixx 41972609 2 I appreciate the absurdity of the book, I really do. The plot was part funny, part horrible, always absurd and tragic. I see how the repetetiveness of the theme can be read as great. It just didn't fit my taste. It felt like it nearly could have been a Vonnegut, but wasn't thinking quite the same way. I'm glad I have read it though, it was time well spent. 2015-04-08T07:00:00-07:00 2018-06-06T10:04:02-07:00 2018-05-31T23:39:43-07:00 2018-06-06T10:04:02-07:00
1249283327 The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo 2429135 rixx 41972609 4 Ohh, this book made me uncomfortabel a lot, and I finished it rather fast because it absolutely would not wait.<br /><br />I liked how it didn't shy away from many issues, and I liked Lisbeth, but I disliked how the protagonist was very, very Mary Sue-ish. Not sure if I'm going to read the other parts. 2015-04-08T07:00:13-07:00 2016-05-06T11:47:18-07:00   2016-02-01T00:00:00-08:00

1249285639 The Martian 18007564 rixx 41972609 5 Gods, I already knew they had chosen Matt Damon as lead role, and I can imagine him in that role so very well! Brilliant humor with hard scifi. I seriously hope they won't fuck up the movie. 2015-04-08T07:03:10-07:00 2016-05-07T16:14:01-07:00   2015-08-06T10:38:55-07:00
1249285759 Ready Player One 9969571 rixx 41972609 2 I liked Ready Player One (and remember, three stars means 'liked it', not 'meh').<br /><br />It immerses you in a dystopic future where humanity takes to a huge Virtual Reality to flee their problems (dwindling oil reserves mean poverty, starvation, slums everywhere). We join a young protagonist on his quest for the hugest in-game Easteregg ever.<br /><br />Its flaws lie mostly within its highly predictable storyline: [spoilers removed] Urgh.<br /><br />Also, logical flaws: Not using proper data science and cross-referencing to solve riddles? Please, that's what every mega-corp would do! There are some instances of less-well thought out behavior like that, sometimes breaking the immersion for me.<br /><br />But apart from the kind of boring overall plot, this book shines with creativity and a huge lot of 80s culture. Loved the references, loved the attention to detail[spoilers removed].<br /><br />It's kind of a feel-good book: A simple, predictable plot with lots of love to detail, enough sophistication in characters so that you actually want the good guys to win[spoilers removed]. 2015-04-08T07:03:21-07:00 2018-07-14T04:54:52-07:00   2015-08-05T00:00:00-07:00

1249287339 The Graveyard Book 2213661 rixx 41972609 4 (I write reviews mostly to remind myself why I liked a book.)<br /><br />I would have loved this book as a child, and I still love it as a grownup (Gaiman tends to write like that). It is paced well, written wonderfully and rings true (in a very similar way American Gods does, but a bit toned-down to the way children see the world). Technically it is a coming-of-age story. I spent a long afternoon reading it and feel a lot better for the time spent. 2015-04-08T07:05:37-07:00 2019-09-21T11:11:24-07:00   2015-04-15T00:00:00-07:00
