Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Yes, yes! I AM a grown-ass man reading this, but I'm not ashamed. I also read the "Twilight" sa(ha-ha!)ga & a bunch of Charlaine Harris as well, remember? Some rules simply do not apply.

What I tried to do here was dispel the extra melodrama and e

The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles

Here: the sheer power of the Victorian novel, exploded & revamped. John Fowles invites you into an experiment he is conducting himself, & stick with it you must: the great puppeteer takes a story 100 years old, writes his characters and HIMSE ...more

Animal Farm by George Orwell

The inherent evil in Teletubbies. The satanic perversion of one very Disneyfied utopia. Orwell's super scary fairy tale is PERFECT. The tenderness in the animals easily translates to that shared by all mankind for itself. And, oh, so easily do modern ...more

City of God by E.L. Doctorow

I wouldn't wish this upon my most vilest of enemies. It reads like a 600 page collection of sloppily unpretty mixed media; too bad it doesn't make one SINGLE IMPRESSION. Doctorow takes on very heavy stuff (...RELIGION!!!!) & gives us an even heav ...more

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson

What I expected to be Borgesian, absolutely meta, actually turned out a tad gimmicky &, no joke, choose-your-own-adventure-like. But no problem. It has a huge heart & employs a super witty use of parentheticals, of asides. It is optimistic in ...more

At the fringes of different worlds...

These stories are reports by an inquisitive and magnificently profound voice, from and about PLACES this reviewer himself holds dear, as actual memories. (El Paso, Juarez, Puerto Vallarta, Albuquerque, Mexico D.F

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

Ultracharming & very very, uh, cute. The singular voice of the main character is enough to convince the reader that a love story exists in anything. This rom-com takes some DNA from various films, especially, it seems, 1997's "As Good As It Gets. ...more

Always in my mind is the notion that Beetlejuice must get a sequel. That film molded my nerdy self into the literophile we have today: Oh what a marvelous imagination behind one of the funniest, most creative screenplays of all time!
