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.

The Miracle at Speedy Motors - Alexander McCall Smith Closer to 3.5 stars. This is my first foray into literature set in Africa, and Botswana in particular. Others have mentioned, as does the cover's blurbs, that this is story has hilarious elements in it. While some of Mma Ramotswe antics and detective techniques brought a smile to my face, most of what she relates is heartbreaking. I think my heart would burst with the pain and suffering Africans endure on a daily basis. Mma Ramotswe is a strong, intelligent woman, full of wisdom and insight. Her methods might be less polished, but her results or surprisingly accurate.
