Book Reviews

I love reading. I also love writing and talking about what I read. Here’s a growing collection of book reviews written by yours truly. There’s a heavy emphasis on climate fiction, though I may review other genres occasionally. Let me know what you think. If you like it, share it!

Book Review: The Doubt Factory by Paolo Bacigalupi

doubt-factory

After thoroughly enjoying several of Paolo Bacigalupi’s books geared toward adults, I decided to read his “Young Adult” books, including The Doubt Factory.

The Doubt Factory definitely has a YA feel. But even as a not-quite-young adult, I really enjoyed it. And the political themes it explores are highly relevant for people of all ages.

Book Review: Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

I’ve enjoyed other Paolo Bacigalupi books, but I initially put off reading Ship Breaker because it was listed as young adult fiction. When I read that it was being made into a movie, though, I decided to give it a try. I’m glad that I did!

Book Review: Ruby and the Blue Sky by Katherine Dewar

ruby-and-the-blue-sky

Ruby and the Blue Sky is one of my favorite climate fiction novels to date and high on my list for fiction in general. Aside from the obvious appeal for cli-fi readers, it will also have a broader appeal for anyone interested in rock stars, activism, strong female protagonists, and just plain good fiction.
