Reading is life. I understand aliens more than I understand a human being over the age of 20 that cannot read. Post graduate reading level in the 7th grade. Love it!

血の轍 (GraphicNovel) 3 stars

Good, But Disturbing - Which May Be the Whole Point!

3 stars

So, CW here, I guess for the manga - I have a "phobia" with seeing animals hurt or in distress. The manga starts with the mother and then small child finding a dead cat during one of their walks in the street. So, for me, we get off to a rocky start.

The art is good, although there are times when it is difficult to tell some of the characters apart. The story is well paced.

I may continue this, yes, but I may prioritize "What Did You Eat Today?" and "A Man and his Cat."

Ghosts Of Boston Haunts Of The Hub (2012, History Press) 2 stars

"He Could Have Gone Deeper," I mused.

2 stars

In the end, I think the book was a bit of a disappointment. I felt that Baltrusis was reaching in several of his entries. He also, in my mind, really leaned on older books on this topic for Boston, sometimes really just repeating their stories. Finally Baltrusis has a couple of "writing ticks" that really started getting old as time went on. I think I've read the word "mused" more in this one book than in every other piece of writing I've ever read. Ever.

A Photographic Fantasy!

5 stars

While the text is interesting, the photographs here are an absolute joy! Discover consoles you never knew existed, and see the consoles you loved in a new way!

I rarely give 5-star reviews, but for what this is meant to me, it is deserved.
