I'm liking the Goodreads platform -- perhaps a little too much: the format encourages an Entertainment Weekly sort of brevity. Perhaps the medium imposed the predilection, or maybe age has just made me impatient. In either case I'm increasingly disinclined to give lengthy consideration to perfectly good books.
If you're already a GR member, do feel free to "fwiend" me (I use my real name). If you're just curious, here are a few responses to stuff I've recently read:
Rock & Roll Will Save Your Life by Steve Almond, here.
Pompeii by Robert Harris, here.
Killing Rommel by Stephen Pressfield, here.
What Disturbs Our Blood by James Fitzgerald, here.
I try not to get snarky on this blog, but at GR I occasionally lapse: here are my thoughts on Ellis's Less Than Zero.
And finally, a book my wife (and many others) devoured, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, here.
