Book Review: Starship Troopers

Starship TroopersStarship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I was recommended this book by a friend, and it is of the hard science fiction variety. While it was an easy read, it dealt with strong and controversial topics. If you are somebody who generally goes for this sort of thing, you'll probably find it highly enjoyable. Militaristic propaganda abounds, and the battle scenes (though few and far-between) are riveting. The main character adds just enough humanity to make this feel real.

Book Review: Board Stiff

Board Stiff (An Elliott Lisbon Mystery, #1)Board Stiff by Kendel Lynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I. Love. This. Book!

With her debut novel, Kendel Lynn introduces us to the spunky, albeit unlucky board-director-turned-private-investigator Elli Lisbon, for whom Murphy's Law is a daily plague. She is smart, though, and her guts get her into and out of many a tangle. While mysteries are generally not my cup of tea, I am a huge fan of this novel and now the entire genre and I want to devour them all! The writing is intelligent, the wit quick, and the humor rampant.

Read it.
