Reviews by Hans Olderbolder

I agree with the bulk of reviews - this is a really entertaining book with a dark humor that had me chuckling to myself quite often. I kept thinking how it would make a really cool CGI movie, too! Well worth the download if you like somewhat darkly humorous sci-fi views of the not too distant future. Well written!

Les MisÚrables

by Victor Hugo

An interesting and entertaining book with moments of unexpected humor among the darkness exemplified by this period of French history. In my opinion, the characters make up for the heavy-handed melodrama and the consistent use of unlikely coincidences to move the plot along. As is usually the case, the book is far better than what can be gleaned from the films or the musical. At times, its a slog...but well worth one's time.
