Reviews

I read a lot of Warhammer fiction, so I figured I could talk about it.

I haven't come up with any sort of 'scale' that reviewers and blogs like to use, and I honestly think such things are always a bit misleading, I mean, it's not like people who write Amazon reviews are professional copy editors with stacks of degrees in literature to back up their opinions or anything and I certainly am not either! Rather I will just tell you what I think based upon a few broad guidelines:

  • Did I like it?
  • Was it hard to put down?
  • Could I care about the characters?
  • Did the writer truly grasp how the 'world' of the 41st millennium works in the sense that it doesn't betray or retcon previously established (as I know it) lore? Or is this the work of a hack chasing a paycheck vs. establishing his mark on the ever-expanding 40k universe?
  • Was I being talked down too?
  • How predictable is this story?
  • Do I recommend this book?

I'm sure I could come up with more, but you get the idea.

007 NOVELS (Ian Fleming)
Since 2012 I have been taking my time to read the original James Bond 007 novels by Ian Fleming. Usually reading these between 40K novels, I find them to be strangely refreshing, oddly nostalgic, and quite fun. The character of Bond is quite different, and very much more grounded than he is shown to be in the films. I hope the reviews (that I intend to do soon) on this series will illustrate this.

Casino Royale
Live and Let Die
Moonraker
Diamonds are Forever
From Russia with Love
Doctor No 
Gold Finger
For Your Eyes Only
