Plato_Googleplex_75In Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away, Rebecca Newberger Goldstein offers some rather illuminating insight into why the same philosophy that was espoused by the ancient Greeks has survived these few millennia past the dark ages and the age of enlightenment, past the existentialists wearing big black shoes and speaking French for no apparent reason, and into today's curriculum for anyone who is looking to gain an understanding of philosophy in general.

Sakyo Komatsu | Virus: The Day of Resurrection (VIZ Media/Haikasoru)

Written by Brent Mueller Wednesday, 07 January 2015 22:02

Over two-thirds of the book are spent telling the story of the dead and the dying, introducing and then killing his characters over the course of a few pages until it felt like you were reading an obituary while the more important characters watched from a safe distance.

Samit Basu | Resistance (Titan Books)

Written by Brent Mueller Wednesday, 06 August 2014 20:56

It’s these details and many others of Basu’s story that draw the reader in and make them think, if only once, “Yeah, I probably would do that if I had superpowers.”

If you are prone to attaching to characters easily, I would suggest having a box of tissues close by; I certainly had some moments of wanting one.

Written by Jasmine Kille Sunday, 05 January 2014 09:34

Nelson’s memoir, although saddening at times, leaves us hopeful by the end.

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Thursday, 29 August 2013 21:22

With the “art of” books, you have time to actually sit and contemplate said production design, while also learning something of the process that went into planning and making the film.



Ziggyology: A Brief History of Ziggy Stardust | Simon Goddard (Ebury Press)

ziggyology 75The book is a joyous read and will transport you back to a time when rock giants like Bowie and Mark Bolan (from T-Rex) roamed the planet.


Stephen King | Joyland (Hard Case Crime/Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Friday, 07 June 2013 08:49

But, for all of that, this is really a story about a young man at a pivotal time in his maturation, as narrated by his older and wiser self. If that reminds you of “The Body”/Stand By Me, well, there are other parallels as well.
