Harmony, USA by Lewis Bryan

“People who use the goodness in people, take advantage of their innocence to do their evil, become a target of mine eventually. I see myself as good, who doesn’t, but I do commit a brand of evil as some would see it. I don’t. Justice? I’ll let you decide.” – Narrator in Harmony, USA            …

Daredevil: Devil at Bay vol.1 by Mark Waid

Vol .1 Devil at Bay : ★★★ 1/2 ☆             Once again, I don’t own the trade paperback since I prefer collecting the comics issues. But for those of you who prefer reading it at once, I recommend you to go for the volume 1, which collects #0.5, #1, #1.5, #2, #3, #4…

Marvels by Kurt Masiek

MARVELS: ★★★★☆             I’ve always told people that I’m a huge Marvel fan only because I love X-Men. Since I was a child, I’ve been reading X-Men comics and watching the cartoon. But as I grew up, I realized that I knew nothing about other Marvel superheroes except the ones mentioned…

Developing Minds : An American Ghost Story by Jonathan Lapoma

Developing Minds : ★★★★½☆             First, let’s clear things up, this Stargaze Literary Prize Finalist is not a paranormal story. There’s no “physical” ghost involved. I should say that the ghost in the subtitle is a metaphor for all the things we cannot see, for what’s behind the curtains, hidden. The story is about Luke, and…

Saga (Volume 1) by Brian K. Vaughan

“Doesn’t matter if it’s personal or professional, a good partnership takes work.”  – Narrator in Saga (Volume 1)             Who would’ve thought that science fiction and fantasy could give birth to such a beautiful piece. I have been reading countless number of comics for a couple of months but I’ve never really dove into something more…

“I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse.” – Don Corleone in The Godfather             What if I told you The Godfather is claimed to be one of the best piece of motion picture of all time? What came to my mind is an insatiable urge to find the novel and thoroughly read it before satisfying my cinematic needs….

V for Vendetta by Alan Moore

“Did you think to kill me? There’s no flesh or blood within this cloak to kill. There’s only an idea. Ideas are bulletproof.” – V in V for Vendetta             In my books, there isn’t a more iconic quote than this. You come to realize that the strength of an idea surpasses the one of…

Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

“War is peace.  Freedom is slavery.  Ignorance is strength.” – The Party in Nineteen Eighty-Four              We have all wondered what Big Brother was all about. What a government controlling and manipulating every single thing we do would look like; from going to work, to eating, to procreating, to breathing. Would it turn out to be something…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children : ★★★★★ This is my series coup de coeur  this summer.♥♥♥ The story was gripping, a very well put together novel. It has funny lines that I find myself laughing out loud! It also has some suspense and chilly moments but overall it’s not a horror story at all. The cover might…

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

In Cold Blood : ★★★☆☆ Truman Capote describes this book as a non-fiction because this is a detailed documentary about a murder taking place in Kansas city in 1959. I like how the author transforms a bunch of interview’s questions and answers and make a novel out of it based on facts. I expected a lot…

The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller

“This should be agony. I should be a mass of aching muscle – broken, spent, unable to move. And, were I an older man, I surely would… but I’m a man of thirty – of twenty again. The rain on my chest is a baptism – I’m born again…” – Batman in The Dark Knight…
