I Will Fear No Reread.
I Will Fear No Evil - Robert A. Heinlein

So I have finished it. Was I disappointed? No. Was it as good as I remembered it? No. The story was entertaining but it didn't make a lot of sense, esp. towards the end. It also lacked depth. It was through and through a product of the hippy era which in itself is not a bad thing. It could have been so much more, though. It was amusing and whiled away a few hours and you can't ask much more than that.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time & The Stuff That Nightmares Are Made Of
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time - Yasutaka Tsutsui,David James Karashima

I feel like this is a really difficult book to review because I can't tell if the problems were with the writing itself or the translation. The concepts were interesting in both stories (this book actually contains two short stories), and I quite enjoyed Tsutsui's creativity. I actually think I enjoyed the second story, The Stuff that Nightmares are Made Of, more than the titular piece. However, the writing was...not good. The prose was stilted and awkward, and the descriptions felt lacking. I also couldn't get a good feel for the characters, and often felt as though the clues were there but I was missing them. I might be inclined to write this off as me missing cultural cues, but I haven't had this difficulty with other Japanese books and media. I strongly suspect this is one of those works that wasn't translated well, and is missing a lot of the original elegance and nuance.

Arc review: Saving the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins Sexy Space Odyssey #3) by Nina Croft
Saving the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins’ Sexy Space Odyssey) - Nina Croft

Third and final installment in the fast-paced, action-packed, sometimes incongruous but still funny at others saga.

Ruby and Killian live another day only to find themselves back in the lion’s den, attempting to complete another suicide rescue mission, only this time Killian is no longer a pirate but a man with a purpose and a sense of honor. Against all odds, the mission is a success, there are more surprises along the way, and Ruby and Killian find some kind of HFN.

I thought the serial as a whole was pretty interesting, if only there would have been more story as opposed to so much insta-lust and gratuitous sex then I would have liked it more. Then again this is more of an erotica so I'll take it as is and I'm sure other readers will enjoy it much more. 

*** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

The Ruby Robbins' Sexy Space Odyssey by Nina Croft is here! (Giveaway)

 

 

 

 

 

 

And each book is only $0.99! 

A few days ago, in a galaxy right here...

The earth faces total annihilation and one young woman signs up for a mission to rescue humanity. Only she ends up getting rescued herself, by a gorgeous space pirate. And the sex is out of this world!

 

Hopeless romantic, Ruby Robbins spends her days as an accounts clerk, and her nights with her head in the stars, dreaming of space adventures in the arms of an alien...or two. Then one day, she's approached to help her country by going undercover...in space! She jumps at the chance and before she knows it, she finds herself in the cargo hold of an alien slaver ship.

 

Space pirate, Killian Sharpe owes a lot of money to some very bad people. So when an anonymous employer offers him a tidy sum to extract one Ruby Robbins from a slaver ship, it sounds like easy money. But once he sets eyes on Ruby, he knows he's in over his head. Not only is she breathtakingly beautiful-she refuses to be saved.

City of Ember, Graphic Novel - Review
The City of Ember: The Graphic Novel - Dallas Middaugh,Niklas Asker,Jeanne DuPrau

 

 

This is a great story made even better by the gorgeous artwork. I read the book a couple years ago but was never interested in the sequels. Now I find myself wondering what happens next. Maybe I will find the next book in graphic novel format too.

 

I read this as part of Booklikes-opoly as a book beginning with "C". Now that I'm finally finished, I guess I can roll again since it is still the 19th. :)
