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
Birds of Prey, Vol. 4: Sensei and Student - Gail Simone, Ed Benes, Michael Golden, Joe Bennett, Cliff Richards, Alex Lei, Ruy Jose, Mike Manley, Scott Hanna The second book in Gail Simone's sublime "Birds of Prey" run! As good as her debut was, Simone manages to improve just about every aspect of her storytelling this time around! The heroines (especially Black Canary) are given more backstory and are amazingly well-developed as a result. Even more impressive, Simone took Lady Shiva and Cheshire, two villains I always found bland and one-dimensional, and managed to make them far more chilling and compelling than ever before! More action, more drama, more laughs, anyone who is looking for a great adventure starring charismatic and intelligent women needs to check out Gail Simone's BOP run!
