My elventy-billionth re-read and enjoyed it as always. Still want to give Marianne a kick in the corset, still think Elinor ended up with the wrong man. I keep wavering between 4 and 5 stars on every read, probably depending on nothing more substantial than my mood, but since I keep reading it over ...

Series: Kamil Pasha #1 The only reason I finished this book was because it was an audiobook. In fact, I almost abandoned it anyway but the other selection I had downloaded at the time wasn't very engaging either. The main character appears to be Kamil Pasha, a magistrate in the secular courts of...

Well, that was a long haul, but I don't regret the journey. This is basically an overview of France, England, and other parts of Europe in the 14th century as it follows the ancestors and life of Enguerrand VI de Coucy. It's not exactly a biography, but it uses de Coucy's life to provide human int...

Personally, I prefer this translation over the much-publicized, "Oprah's Book Club" Pevear and Volokhonsky.

I guess I had high expectations for this one and was disappointed. I don't think listening to it on audio help as the narration and sound editing was very poor.

This is a book which countless teenagers have been forced to read as part of the school syllabus. For some reason I didn't have to read it when I was at school. I'm glad that's the case, because I've a feeling this would not have appealed to me very much when I was a teenager. As has been the case w...

Some of these short stories are quite brilliant - Sayers has a gift of telling concise, interesting mysteries almost better as short stories than novel-length. I didn't expect the non-Lord Peter stories, but (although rather improbable) I enjoyed them nevertheless.

I was wavering at around 4 - 4.5 stars on this, but in the end I have to give it a full 5. _Middlemarch_ by George Eliot (aka Mary Anne Evans) is, first and last, an extraordinary achievement. Other writers have worked with a large and varied cast. Other writers have written social commentaries wit...
