JoJo Biggins’s book reviews

I went back and forth over whether to rate this story 3 or 4 stars. It's really in between, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt.

A rather simplistic story with no particular twists or turns. Some of it's even a bit hokey and tired. But, I thought the writing was otherwise pretty good, and it kept me entertained without moaning.

Simply put, a guy figures out time travel and has all the expected fun with it without any of the usual consequences.
This is a tired old tale of the future going back in time to create the past that eventually creates the future. It's been done too many times, and nothing new here to make it interesting.
This story has some good potential, but it just really goes nowhere. Very short, and nothing of particular interest happens.
A decent story, but rough around the edges. I expected much more from a name like Lester Del Rey. While the plot keeps your attention, the dialog can be a bit unbelievable at times, and most of the characters are pretty thin. Other than that, it's better than most books on the site. I would rate it 3.5 stars if I could, but gave it the benefit of the doubt.

An ex-cop from Earth goes on a rip-roarin' Mars adventure, with plenty of action, subterfuge, and plot twists. Our hero is out to save Mars both from itself and from Earth. With corruption surpassing that of the Wild West, the task is monumental.
I found this rather boring. I skimmed the first three chapters, then quit.
This story is so silly that I bailed after about 6 pages. Not worth the time.
Wow. This was a 5-star story right up until the very end. Then, the author bungles it with stupidity and simplicity. Worth reading, but be prepared for the letdown.
This story is a gem. It's a bit hard to figure out what's going on in the beginning, and it's done in such a way to keep reader interest high. As the reader catches on to what's happening, the story takes on new interest in a different direction. I thought the plot, the characters, and the writing were all done well - except for the ending, which was a little bit of a non event.

Undercover galactic agents attempt to discover interference with primitive civilizations.
A rather simplistic tale in which a man fights against a space monster. There was enough repetitive text in the beginning that I seriously doubt this work ever went under the knife of a professional editor.

Worth a read, but overall disappointing.
Boring. Extremely boring. I can't describe how boring.

This is not even a sci-fi story - the author just chose to make the setting a different planet. The tale could have taken place anywhere and at any time.

The only thing that happens in this story is that a guy leads a team up a mountain to make a deal with a certain tribe to help them solve a medical problem. That's it! Nothing else happens. I can't believe it's even possible to waste so much writing space on such a non event.
