Evicted - A Review

EVICTED: POVERTY AND PROFIT IN THE AMERICAN CITY by Matthew DesmondThere are a lot of occupations that, for various reasons, I could never work in … I’ve just added landlord to the list.Sadly, this book is an account of what life has come to for those families and individuals living below the poverty line in a major American city – and doubtless everywhere.  From May 2008 through…See More

Slade House - A Review

SLADE HOUSE by David MitchellSlade House is mansion that stands down a narrow, dark alley in a working class part of London.  Those who know of it always think that it is very out of place.  Those who visit it find it’s garden enchanting, it’s hosts charming and the food better than any ever tasted before.  Those few never want to leave … then they do – desperately … none…See More

Two Ghost Stories

So I'm finally catching up on posting some of the reviews for my "Halloween Reads".  Although told in very different styles these books had some similarities such as time period (1930's), female ghosts with an agenda and female protagonists, which I always enjoy. FIERCOMBE MANOR by Kate RiodanAlice, a shy and inexperienced young woman working her first job in London, falls…See More

UNFAIR:  THE NEW SCIENCE OF CRIMINAL INJUSTICE by Adam BenforadoIt’s not too often I use the work “brilliant” in writing a book review, but in the case of “Unfair” I have to say that it is nothing short of that description … brilliant.  There are any numbers of books available on the subjects of false confessions, wrongful convictions and the flaws in both police practices and the…See More

Harem: The World Behind the Veil

HAREM: The World Behind the Veil by Alev Lytle CroutierDiaphanous veils, steamy wading pools and chaise lounge all occupied by beautiful women just waiting to be called upon by their sultan.  This is the image that most people conjure when the word “Harem” is uttered.  This 25th Anniversary re-release of Ms. Croutier’s book quite honestly does not do much to dispel this…See More

Secondhand Souls - A Review

SECONDHAND SOULS by Christopher MooreI don’t even know where to start on a synopsis for this book?  This sequel to “A Dirty Job” is an “everything but the kitchen sink” kind of book brilliantly pulled together by the twisted mind of Christopher Moore.  He just makes it work and makes me laugh through the whole thing.Since his own untimely “death” Charlie Asher has been…See More

Prince of Darkness - A Review

PRINCE OF DARKNESS by Shane WhiteJeremiah G. Hamilton was man of mystery.  No one is sure where he was born – was it Virginia or Haiti – even he himself changed the story as it suited.  His questionable start in business – passing counterfeit money in Haiti put a price on his head on that island.  Defrauding insurance companies over boat accidents, buying and selling property…See More

Read This One with ALL the Lights On

SEIZE THE NIGHT edited by Christopher GoldenThey’re not handsome/pretty or friendly and they do not exercise self-control.  They ARE ugly, vicious, gritty and evil.  Vampires – just the way I like ‘em!I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to my vampires.  I don’t want Edward and daywalkers – I want creatures of the night and fog … Stoker’s Dracula, Lon Chaney Jr.’s bat,…See More

A TURKISH HORROR FILM, THE DANISH GIRL and CULLING BOOKS ...

… those are the reasons I am sooooo behind in writing and posting reviews.  I feel bad about that, but I console myself with the thought that my “week or so” has been productive in other areas.It is Toronto International Film Festival time so my focus has been and is currently on movies instead of books.  I have an excellent source for tickets … I’ve finally forgiven my daughter for…See More
