Book Review: The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel

The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel starts with what appears to be a scene of Vincent’s final moments after falling off a ship. The 5 star luxury Glass Hotel was in Caiette, a small and remote part of Vancouver Island.

Book Review: Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

Nineteen Eighty-Four is an outstandingly (in every sense of the word) powerful, thought-provoking, compelling, engaging portrait of an all too feasible near future.

Book Review: The Guardians of Erum by Ali Hasan Ali

The Guardians of Erum is a Middle East inspired fantasy novel about djinns, occultists, metaphor, faith, and political uprising. And for a fantasy novel, it is more firmly rooted in reality than most. However, one of the many reasons that I love to read is to experience new places and new cultures. On that score, this book is utterly fascinating. And much to his credit, author Ali Hasan Ali really succeeds in rendering this world – a great city of Erum in the Middle East – with the perfect description of places.
