Book Reviews

Trevor O. Munson | Angel of Vengeance (Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Jennifer Manjarez Thursday, 28 April 2011 15:32

From the very first scene, you realize there’s an even darker issue at hand here for the lead character: he doesn’t just hunger for blood, he’s addicted to it.

 

Goldie Goldbloom | The Paperbark Shoe (Picador)

Written by Lacey Morgan Wednesday, 20 April 2011 13:10

Goldbloom's writing mirrors the novel’s musical theme, weaving staccato snapshots of Gin's childhood into the legato musings of her present life.

   

Mick Wall | When Giants Walked the Earth: A Biography of Led Zeppelin (Orion)

| Print |

Written by John Shepherd Wednesday, 20 April 2011 12:06

Wall provides unprecedented access and does a decent job of not sensationalizing the subject matter, letting the principals tell much of the story in their own words.

Lisa Birnie | In Mania’s Memory (Read Leaf)

It is only by understanding these horrors that the reader begins to understand Kroll and her view of a world that she nevertheless has grown to love.

   

Gina Welch | In the Land of Believers (Picador)

| Print |

Written by Erin Jameson Sunday, 27 March 2011 08:57

It's a well-written account that shows us the humanity of an often-vilified section of the population. It also doesn't shy away from revealing the ugly side of that group.

Zack Snyder | Sucker Punch: The Art of the Film

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Tuesday, 22 February 2011 15:07

It's a full-color, large-format volume which not only showcases the film's art but also gives you an insider's view of some of the creative decisions that went into creating its distinctive look.

 

 

Kevin Young | Ardency: A Chronicle of the Amistad Rebels

| Print |

Written by Matthew Treon Sunday, 20 February 2011 10:48

Young's virtuosic use of the English language enables his words to practically sing themselves off the page.
