Reviews by Matthew McClintock

Tokyo Zero

by Marc Horne

I really enjoyed this one -- there were parts where I felt like it could have been tightened up a bit, but the story, the characters, and the overall plot were quite engaging.

The Thirty-Nine Steps

by John Buchan

An earlier review mentions Robert Donat playing the lead role, but for some reason I kept seeing Cary Grant running around through the moors. Not heavy reading, but a good story, with fun characters - a step above "pulp" fiction.

Accelerando

by Charles Stross

A very fast paced, forward looking, jargon-rich look at a post-singularity civilization -- great characters, and an intricate plot that could be expanded into an entire series.

The Hound of the Baskervilles

by Arthur Conan Doyle

One of the things I've always enjoyed about Sherlock Holmes stories is that while they're far-fetched they're not impossible, and that makes them more enjoyable. They're also really well suited to reading aloud, with excellent dialog.

Author of the Day

Carrie Doyle
Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
