Men are from Earth, princesses are from Mars- a review of Edgar Rice Burroughs' A Princess of Mars.

I don’t usually see film adaptations before I’ve read their written counterparts, for obvious reasons. John Carter is one of the few exceptions and while it was considered a movie flop, I enjoyed it; so much so that I ordered the book the next day. I left it on my shelf for a while, giving priority to other books I thought would be more interesting, but when I finally got to it, I couldn’t put it down.  Summary and review after the jump.

Wooly Bully Indeed!! A review of Hugh Howey’s Wool

I haven’t been ventured into a Dystopian novel in a long time, and after reading about Wool and how incredible it was, I had to give it a try. I’m also a sucker for authors who self published before they made it big, because it gives me hope that people like me can one day achieve my goals as well. Summary and review after the jump.
