So subtle! Told like a fable this story took me completely by surprise, and wow! I love the voice of the narrator. The contemplative tone doesn't slow down the plot but widens the scope of the story to include all sorts of philosophical quandaries. Its a story-telling masterpiece, concerned with language and its uses as well as our place in the universe.
"This is a story I have heard..." love love loved it!

This subtly written literary horror will creep up on you when you’re not looking. The subdued language and quiet ambiance set you up for a surprisingly vicious ending and oddly resonant symbolism.  “Fantastic” in the vein of Kafka this maybe-ghost story is a can’t-put-it-down short read but leaves you wondering long after.

Pratchett stepped away from Discworld in this might-have-been alt-history gem and we thank him for it. A lone boy-not-man must rebuild the Nation for his people and remake, remember, and possibly re-invent their identity. Rife with traditional Pratchett humor and poignant riffs on doctrine in all nations, this is a joy to read.

Terry Pratchett is one of my most adored authors. This was one of the last Discworld novels, and the last Moist Von Lipwig tales, to have been written before Pratchett passed away this summer. And its as awesome as ever, steaming away with a wit yet unmatched and a rollicking story that will keep you watching the rails for sharp turns and narrow tunnels.

Bird Box is a fast and dark read. Its a tight-rope-walking-with-a-blindfold kind of read. Creatures you can't see - and don't want to and human drama make for a sci-fi thrilling trip through the dark. I was really glad to go outside and see the sun shining afterward. Creepy and imaginative. I loved it!

Mieville accomplishes what fantasy fiction is build for: transforming the mundane into magic. And he does it so well, with such amazing novel creativity, that he makes even Moby-Dick worth reading again (for me). I didn't like Moby Dick - at all - until now. Twisty and ingenious Mieville makes me want to think about Melville. If you have never read Moby Dick it doesn't matter at all, you'll still love this outlandish wild fantasy adventure, and if you have, well, it will be worth your while to spend some time in Railsea!
