"The Novice" Review

“The Novice” by Taran Matharu is a great book that you should read, but I found it naive in some places. I’m giving it four stars out of five. 289 more words


"140 Decibels of Silence" Review

It’s the second Ukrainian book in a row that I’m reviewing, and this time, unlike the others, I’m seriously impressed. I bought this at the Book Arsenal, a book festival in Kyiv, and I was not disappointed. 413 more words


"The Kingdom" Review

Yet another Ukrainian book, and yet another major disappointment. After “Nine Steps Towards The Wind”, another Ukrainian book I criticized, I already had low expectations, but “The Kingdom” turned out to be even worse than I thought. 440 more words


"Uglies" Review

I’m sure I found my next favorite book. It’s “Uglies” by Scott Westerfeld – probably a modern classic by now. Obviously, I’m giving it five stars. 228 more words


"Silence Is Goldfish" Review

A while back, I reviewed “My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece” by Annabel Pitcher. Today I’m reviewing another book by the same author.

I give “Silence is Goldfish” four stars out of five. 243 more words

Solitude is not as bad as you think…
