Hotel Du Jack And Other Stories by Dan Brotzel

I waffled quite a bit, back and forth with a lot of points for either idea about expanding on individual stories or writing an all-encompassing review.

The Metamorphosis By Franz Kafka

Translation:  Ian C. Johnston, Narrator Luke Daniels There is a backstory to me picking this up. If you have been following my blog for awhile, you will know that my knowledge of famous literary works/classics is piecemeal at best.

The main character is Ulf Vargas and although he is an interesting enough character I found some of the relationships he has… Continue reading The Department of Sensitive Crimes (Detective Varg #1) by Alexander McCall Smith

Mathematical Mysteries 1 &2 by Jonathan Pinnock

It has been a while since I had this book on my virtual shelves and although I found the writing entertaining, something always seemed to come in the way and I did not get around to reading it last year. This year though, I found out that the second book was releasing and thought of… Continue reading Mathematical Mysteries 1 &2 by Jonathan Pinnock
