I loved the Dante Club. The Poe Shadow, however, lacks the great and believable characters of DC. It also lack a unity of plot and wanders through to an unsatisfying conclusion.
One of the funniest books I've ever read. The style is witty, kind and down to earth. A must read for anyone who has ever worked at a start-up. Hearing the story from the author's own mouth adds to the personal feeling of the book. You'll be the lucky one if you take the time to listen to this book.
The first third of this book changed my walk with Christ. The idea that the Lord wants me to feel joy was life-changing for me. His yoke is light and yet, before reading this book, I felt I served him best by running myself to the ground, living on five hours of sleep and feeling inadequate for not doing more. My common mantra now is "You can't take my joy, Devil." Definitely a recommended read for folks who overdrive themselves.
I loved snow crash and diamond age. This one was horridly boring. The entire book reads like a set up for a story. But a story never develps.
