Book Reviews

Ben Mezrich | Sex on the Moon (Doubleday)

| Print |

Written by Gordon Hopkins Monday, 11 July 2011 17:30

Sex on the Moon is an extremely cinematic true story that reads like a cross between Ocean’s Eleven and Real Genius.

 

Gallery 1988 | Crazy 4 Cult: Cult Movie Art (Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Pete Timmermann Tuesday, 05 July 2011 20:22

What it ultimately comes down to, though, is that you’ll probably like the art inspired by films you like and you won’t like the art inspired by the films you don’t like.

| Print |

Written by Matthew F. Newlin Wednesday, 25 May 2011 19:06

Never one to back down from any stunt, no matter how dangerous or ill-advised, Armstrong has earned the respect of many of the greatest filmmakers and actors working today.

 

Denis Meikle | Johnny Depp: A Kind of Illusion (Titan Books)

Written by Matthew F. Newlin Monday, 09 May 2011 15:40

It is also hard to take seriously an author who gets so many facts so very wrong.

   

Edited by Ernie Rideout | Keyboard Presents: Synth Gods (Backbeat Books)

| Print |

Written by Mark Casey Friday, 29 April 2011 08:33

Authors such as the prolific Jim Aikin are synthesizer experts in their own right and efficiently drill down to core content readers want.

 

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)

| Print |

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.

   

Joss Whedon | Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog: The Book (Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Kelly Stephenson Wednesday, 13 April 2011 09:30

Want to know what happens when creative people get in a room, leverage their connections to other creative people and make something? It's in there.

 

 

Joan Schenkar | The Talented Miss Highsmith (Picador)

| Print |

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Tuesday, 12 April 2011 10:56

Yet there was something about her that kept new victims lining up, furnishing Highsmith with a lifestyle that supplied plenty of material for her books.

   

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

| Print |

Written by Jason Neubauer Tuesday, 05 April 2011 16:48

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.
