Book Review: Golden Son

Book Review: Golden Son

Golden Son by Pierce Brown

I love reading Pierce Brown. A writer could learn a lot reading his work.

Golden Son is Book II of the Red Rising series and it is terrific. I don’t typically seek out a series to read, nor do I typically seek out Science Fiction. I’m more of a one-book, one-story kind of guy, but occasionally I come across a series that I really enjoy. The Red Rising series is one of those.

I rate it 24 out of a possible 25. (see My Book Reviews for rating explanation)

Book Review: A Head Full of Ghosts

Book Review: A Head Full of Ghosts

A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay

Finally!

Every once in a while, I come across that rare book that totally absorbs me and the characters linger in my mind for days (sometimes weeks) after I finish it. I love those books and folks, let me tell you, A Head Full of Ghosts did just that.

I rate it 22 out of a possible 25. (see My Book Reviews for rating explanation)

Book Review: The Dead Lands

Book Review: The Dead Lands

The Dead Lands by Benjamin Percy

I finished The Dead Lands last night. If asked to summarize my reaction, I’d say it was okay. Not bad, but not great.

I rate it 16 out of a possible 25. (see My Book Reviews for rating explanation)

The premise: The Dead Lands is a post-apocalyptic thriller where the remnants of the human race live in a city (appropriately called The Sanctuary) surrounded by a massive wall.
