Broken Homes & Gardens: A Novel

My only gripe with "Broken Homes" was the ending. After reading the very last sentence, I felt disgruntled. It was beautifully written, like the rest of the book, yet it left me wanting more.


What Comes Next and How to Like It: A Memoir

If you are looking for a light beach read, What Comes Next and How to Like It is not that book.


Three Moments of an Explosion: Stories

As a collection of stories it is interesting, engaging, beguiling, irritating and bewitching, sometimes all at once.


The Fifth Season
SFF World : The Fifth Season (August 04, 2015)

The Fifth Season is a powerful, epic novel of discovery, pain, and heartbreak across the landscape of a many-times broken world with characters who are supremely flawed and broken themselves.


Zeroes
SFF World : Zer0es (August 18, 2015)

The novel ends with both closure and a seed for a potential next volume. I’ve come to enjoy the characters even Reagan whose annoyances became less so with the plot’s forward movement, how they interact, and with Chuck’s great storytelling skills, I’m definitely aboard for the more stories featuring any of these characters – even Reagan.


The Human Division

The Human Division is certainly a successful return, and continuation, to one of my favourite SF series. Recommended.


You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost): A Memoir

It’s about embracing what makes you different and having the bravery and courage to share it with the world, and that’s why the digital misfit that is Felicia Day is a talent not to be reckoned with.


The Hive Construct

There is a wonderfully cinematic feel to proceedings, right from the opening chapter of Zala striding out of the arid heat of the Sahara, possibly dooming herself by returning to the city that damned her, calling to mind Franco Nero’s Django emerging from the Badlands dragging a coffin behind him.


Supersymmetry

As a fun thriller with some outlandish elements, Supersymmetry rather fun.


Fool's Quest

Those of us who already know about these books will be pleased to discover that it’s still an amazing series and one that is well worth your time.


Zero World
Starbust Magazine : Zero World (August 26, 2015)

It’s a bold move, and one that leaves things open to develop further.


The Last Love Song

When he’s not showing his affection for his subject through his aspirational style, he’s fondly referring to Didion as things like “the famously frail bird in a sweater.”


Purity

If I’d been told Purity was a first novel by an unknown writer – male or female – I suspect I’d be dazzled by its rich scenes and crackling dialogue, its delicious observations about contemporary life, the breathtaking scope of its ambition. The person who wrote this, I’d think, has an amazing future.


The Crossing

Miller delivers instead a finale perhaps more original than it is satisfying, but one that guarantees that Maud, and questions about Maud, will linger in your mind long after you close this remarkable novel.


Among the Ten Thousand Things: A Novel

The “Ten Thousand Things” of the title refer to the inexhaustible life outside the self and the family: the temptations of the world, the source of Jack’s art and the arena of the characters’ struggle for self-realisation.


Purity

A book worth reading but certainly not the Great American Novel.
