Dave Green's Read Alerts

My hobbies include just about anything, really...except reading, I hate reading! Kidding of course, reading is my favorite hobby! I love not only reading, but creative writing as well. I'm currently working on a novel about a group of paranormal social workers who try to help creatures like themselves cope with being different while also protecting humanity from the more malevolent beings. Other hobbies include music, yoga, comedy clubs, movies, and video games. I read from just about any genre, but my favorites are fantasy/urban fantasy, mystery, science fiction, and graphic novels (that's what us comic-book geeks call them to try to sound more sophisticated). In my secret identity, I work as an accountant for a nonprofit organization . I know...accounting and creative writing don't exactly go together...what can I say, I'm full of contradictions! My rating system: 5 STARS - I absolutely loved this book! I couldn't wait to finish it, yet I also never wanted it to end! 4 STARS - I liked this book an awful lot! It would have been perfect, except for some minor issue or issues that detracted from my overall enjoyment. 3 STARS - I liked this book, but found it somewhat flawed. Probably would not read again, but might still give the author and/or series a second chance. 2 STARS - Overall, a disappointing read for me. It had its moments, but sadly the bad outweighed the good. 1 STAR - I hate the part of my brain that convinced me to read this book!

Queen and Country: A Gentleman's Game
Greg Rucka
Swamp Thing, Vol. 2: Love and Death - Alan Moore, Stephen R. Bissette, Shawn McManus, John Totleben "Murder? Don't talk to me about murder! I invented murder!" - Cain

Alan Moore's brilliant reinvention of the Swamp Thing mythos continues, this time where much of the focus is on Swamp Thing's arch-enemy, Dr. Anton Arcane. In the past, Arcane had been little more than a second-rate Lex Luthor clone (except with a full head of hair), but in this edition, he is transformed into something truly monstrous! This edition also features a brilliant re-imagining of eternally dueling brothers Cain & Abel, a touching tribute to cartoonist Walt Kelly, and one of the most bizarre (yet moving) love stories you'll ever read!
