Autumn Adventures

My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.


I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas).  I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.


Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry.  Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.

I listened to this as part of "The Big Read" sponsored by the Kansas City Public Library in the Fall of '13 (2013 that is).  I enjoyed listening to Donna Tartt narrating as Mattie Ross.  My only quibble is with the sound editors, who left in long pauses and the sound of Donna taking a long breath or swallowing ... not something I normally hear when listening to audiobooks.  I liked her essay at the end, though.
