Thoughts on An Abundance of Katherines

I recently read John Green's novel An Abundance of Katherines. Here are some thoughts I had about the book.

I felt that the book was funny not only because of the playful humor between the characters or the settings that they ventured into, but also the footnotes all over the book and showcased on the cover that explained the matter in a subtle and interestingly amusing manner. 

The interactions between the characters established a certain…

Book Review: 84, CHARING CROSS ROAD

In the mood for a charming little book on good old London town? Look no further than Helene Hanff’s 84 Charing Cross Road, an epistolary tale spanning 20 years and an ocean chronicling the friendship of a New York woman in desperate need of Brit Lit and a man in a bookstore only too happy to help.

Book reviews, including an ethnography on cannibalism

First of all, books--

In which I give brief reviews on cannibalism, colonialism, and The One ring to rule them all, along with a finished result in regards to spider-trickster offspring.

"Consuming Grief" by Beth A. Conklin-- It's an ethnography of a tribe of people who practice cannibalism out of compassion. It's not seen as a threat, or violence, or revenge, or sacrifice. It's simply to help the people who are…

What I learned from Paper Towns by John Green: A Contemplation in Six Parts

[Caution: contains spoilers]

 

PART ONE:

LET ME 'SPLAIN.  NO...THERE IS TOO MUCH.  LET ME SUM UP

Right off the bat, I will tell you this:  I loved Paper Towns.  Between this and The Fault in Our Stars (a.k.a. TFIOS), John Green manages to create a book that is quite actually depressing but somehow funny and entertaining.  TFIOS is, of course,…

UPDATE!

Wow, Nerdfighteria,

I have been gone a long, long time and for that you have my sincerest apologies, but I am going to try and be better about being on here more often (seeing as how this community is utterly magnificent). So updates on my life: the big news is that a job may be headed my way, at least I hope it is. I've emailed off to the head of blueravengaming.com which is an up-and-coming gaming website that I have applied to be a video game reviewer for. Basically, the long and…

New Blog?

This site is has grabbed my attention, and I'm glad to soon be meeting people hopefully like me. Except since I'm a Book Reading Nerdfighter (if that is a correct term, I'm still fairly new, and I'm still just along in the beginning of the series) I want to use my blog for what I want. My opinion and I want to use if for my thoughts on the books I'm reading, as well as share the stuff I am writing.

I'm young, so I know for a fact anyone who reads this wont care. But that…

Review-- The Historian

This book is definitely a long, long read. 



I bounced between being entranced an excited, to bored, to interested, to longing for an ending, to excited and then dully unaffected by the uneventful ending. Even so, I would have to say I enjoyed quite a few facets of this story, even if there were some things that I did not enjoy.…

Book Review: Wonderful Fool By Shusaku Endo

Book 5 of my 50 book challenge of this year and I've just finished this book and I'm honestly baffled by how much I enjoyed this book.  This is the type of book that surprises you with it's cleverness and how knowing the author is of human nature.  I'm usually pretty good at guessing what happens next in a story- a reason why I never mind spoilers- and yet this book surprised me constantly   I'm still shell shocked it was so good, in fact I don't think I'm rational enough to review this book…

The Fault In Our Stars: Grief after books/Me talking (The Natty Rant #2)

Hello, um, people? Friends? Readers? RANTERS! Hello Ranters. I recently read 'The Fault In Our Stars'. I know, I didn't really know if I liked the John Green books, I was content with having read 'Looking For Alaska.' I was honestly quite scared. I didn't want to disgrace the name of, like, my favorite youtuber, by not liking the book. But then I sucked it up, and bought it. I wanted to be in the little party aswell!

I am reading 'An Abundance Of Katherines', but before, I was…

Reivew-- The Language of Souls

Wow, what a sweet story. Slightly reminiscent of Dear Enemy but unique in and of it's own right. For a novella to bring about that much change in fate and emotion in so few pages, it deserves to be applauded. I was quite glad.



Solena, a young orphaned girl raised by the High Prophet of her people, is known for having a generous heart along with her…

Review-- On The Jellicoe Road

I do not think I have ever read a book like On The Jellicoe Road.

Every once in a while you read a book that deals you an emotional blow in more than one way, by throwing you through the ringer of the tragedies of it's characters and their triumphs, and at the same exact time forcing you to work through your own. On The Jellicoe Road is that kind of book-- only on a level that far exceeds.…

Rumbleshirtskin by Maynard Moose

Once upon a time, there was a man called Rumbleshirtskin. He was about three foot tall with an uglified nasty pointy chin and beard and stuff. And nobody knew his name was Rumbleshirtskin except Rumbleshirtskin.

This is a story called Goldilocks. No, it's called Rumbleshirtskin. There was once a girl named Goldilocks who had very bright hair. Her hair shone like a 1000 watt lightbulb. Her parents kept telling her to turn out your hair, which she could not do. So she put a…

Book Review: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Over the weekend I read the book that was recommended by John and written by their friend Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. This book was recently noted on NPR's list of 100 Top Teen novels, so I knew it was about time to take it from it's resting position on my shelf and give it a read.

Now I am 21 years old, I am aware of the fact that I am…

Rick Riordan Fangirls Unite! A Book Review

So, I'm a really big nerd when it comes to all things Rick Riordan. For one of my first video reviews, I reviewed the amazingness that is The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan. It is the third and final installment in the Kane Chronicles series, and, let me just say, tore me apart into millions of tiny microscopic pieces of my nerdfighting self.

Book Review: The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak (***SPOILER ALERT***)

I don't know whether the sick feeling in my stomach is from how much I just cried, or whether it's something else entirely. I don't know how to respond to this book, this brilliant, brilliant book.

Even saying that feels like lying. Because it is such a good book, but to say things like “it was wonderful” or “I really enjoyed it” feels wrong. Because there's nothing wonderful or enjoyable about it, not in a literal sense. I can't remember the parts that…

Book Review: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs

Yes, I got around to reading this book at last!  I think it is one of the first books I added to my to-read list on goodreads when I first joined over a year ago... and it's never been available in the library when I go.  Until last week.  

I don't know what I was expecting, but it was not this.  The way the beginning is written it seems almost like a memoir--so realistic and logical, and even when something crazy happens it's immediately explained with the words "psychotic…
