A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

“What’s it going to be then, eh?” — Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange      This is hands-down one of my favorite reads of 2016. It blows my mind how much it’s innovative, thought-provoking and dreadfully disturbing. It blends good and evil as if they weren’t water and oil. It succeeds in delivering a criminal-ridden dystopia…

Superman/Batman (Volume 1) – Public Enemies by Jeph Loeb

“In times of war, circumstances dictate action.” — Jeph Loeb, Superman/Batman (Volume 1) Public Enemies     The world’s oldest question: Superman or Batman? Now, what if it isn’t always a “or”? The two titans haven’t always been either side of the fence. Although their sense of justice and their means vary grandly thanks to differences in…

Creation (Chronicles of Ara #1) by Joel Eisenberg and Stephen Hillard

MY RATING: ★★★ (3,5)☆☆ “Each immortal is possessed of a particular gift. Each gift is responsible for a particular miracle.” This book is difficult to rate and difficult to describe too.
