Reviews

BLACK LIBRARY BOOKS
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.
