Reviews by Jon


by Tobias Buckell

Seemed like the author got tired and closed without really finishing anything. Several good ideas, but characters were one-[not even two]dimensional. A waste of time.

Jimgrim and Allah's Peace

by Talbot Mundy

When I started this I had to assure myself I was reading the right book--it just sounded too modern [except for the sex and language; didn't see the f-word once, and only a few references to harems and women, all necessary to the story]. Jimgrim sounds a little too wonderful [though apparently Mundy based him on someone he knew], but the story is good. If you like adventure set in the Middle East and the days of the British Empire, you can't do much better than this. This is the first I've read of Mundy's, and I immediately downloaded all of the other Jimgrim books; when I started the second of the series [Winds of the World] I started downloading some others that seemed to be related to that, in addition to the Jimgrim books. I'll probably end up reading all of his books before I finish!
