Book: Outlander

Outlander (Outlander, #1)Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love this book! I love the historical fiction of it. I love the sci-fi aspect. I really love the medicinal/herbal part of the story. But I could really do without the sex. I’m not saying that Diana Gabaldon should change her way of writing. I’m sure many people love this aspect of the book as well. And the argument can be made that it’s an integral part of the story that is being told, but I just don’t like it and I can’t recommend it to younger readers for this reason.

Still, this is the second time I’ve read (listened to) this book. The narrater, Davina Porter is AMAZING! There is no other way to describer her. I would listen to her read a phone book. She brings each character, male and female, young and old, Scottish or English to life.

Book: The Story of Sushi: An Unlikely Saga of Raw Fish and Rice

The Story of Sushi: An Unlikely Saga of Raw Fish and RiceThe Story of Sushi: An Unlikely Saga of Raw Fish and Rice by Trevor Corson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book seemed to move somewhat slowly, but I really enjoyed the depth of information in the book and the way that the information was wrapped into the story line. I would give the depth of information 5 stars and the story would get 3 stars. I’ll settle on 4 stars as an average, I suppose. A non sushi lover would probably not enjoy this book as much as me. But due to my absolute passion for sushi, I found it a wonderful look into almost every aspect of it.

Book: Dragon’s Maze

Dragon's Maze: The Secretist, Part ThreeDragon’s Maze: The Secretist, Part Three by Doug Beyer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a really fun story. Doug Beyer is a first rate author. The story flow, both action and dialog moved at a great pace. This, along with the preceding two novellas in the series really brought the world of Ravnica to life. Playing Magic the Gathering is made even more interesting with the weaving of story, and this is no exception.
