I was slated as the host to the November 20 edition of the Book Review Blog Carnival, but technical and personal glitches have made it very late. Here, at long last, is a roundup of book reviews from the second half of last month:
KerrieS presents Review: A LONELY DEATH, Charles Todd posted at MYSTERIES in PARADISE, saying, “If you enjoy British crime fiction, then look for this series by Charles Todd featuring Inspector Ian Rutledge. Great reads set in England just after World War One.”
KAZBullet presents What I’m Reading: World War Z posted at Bullet’s Brain, saying, “This is a review of World War Z by Max Brooks. It’s more my reactions to it than a critique. Hope you enjoy, thanks for posting!”
Jon Welling presents Review: Between the Sea and Sky by Jaclyn Dolamore posted at Hippies, Beauty, and Books Oh My!.
Jim Murdoch presents The Next Stop is Croy and other stories by Andrew McCallum Crawford posted at The Truth About Lies, saying, “`The Next Stop is Croy’ is a skilfully written collection of short stories revolving around the same set of characters that takes the reader straight to the bittersweet spot of the human condition. Exploring familiar terrains of shame, frustration and loss, the writer differentiates these stories by revealing those elusive, critical moments in life that knit together to make a boy into a man. The writer manages to distil a lifetime into the spoken (and unspoken) language of fathers and sons. Only available as an ebook.”
Zohar presents Thoughts on: Georg Letham: Physician and Murderer by Ernst Weiss posted at Man of la Book.
Skyler Reep presents Finishing The Leaves posted at Skyler Reep’s Blog, saying, “This book was so unsettling, so tangled, and so unnervingly powerful — that it took me seven months to work through it. Admittedly for most of the first four months, House of Leaves remained tightly closed with other, happier books piled on top of it. My lonely bookmark remained tentatively tucked into the start of the second chapter.”
Zohar presents Thoughts on: Eleanor Roosevelt’s Life of Soul Searching and Self Discovery by Ann Atkins posted at Man of la Book.
KerrieS presents Review: A BREWSKI FOR THE OLD MAN, Phyllis Smallman posted at MYSTERIES in PARADISE, saying, “This is #3 in a crime fiction series by an acclaimed Canadian writer. Worth looking out for in my opinion, and #1 in the series is highly acclaimed.”
Read Aloud Dad presents The Caboose Who Got Loose: Phenomenal Picture Books posted at Read Aloud Dad.
Trudy Zufelt presents Book Review: An Accidental Adventure #2: We Dine With Cannibals posted at Boys and Literacy, saying, “Finding great books for boys one book at a time.”
