Review: Lo mejor es la idea central. Si bien el protagonista tiene una presencia de ánimo a prueba de balas, la verdad es que la situación por la que pasa es aterradora. Tal vez, el principal defecto es la profundización en cuestiones técnicas difíles de entender. Read more
Review: Ray Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles deserves its accolades. Like all science fiction, Bradbury uses the issues of his time, late 40s and early 50s America, and creates a future that reflects the extension of those concerns, only vastly expanded.
Bradbury's main concern is nuclear war between the United State and the Soviet Union. But he tackles many more topics. With the human settlement of Mars, there are shades of the colonial interactions of Europeans with indigenous peoples. All of ... Read more

And the ending was beautifully done, just beautiful. I don't even know if I have words to explain why, but the last three or four sentences really stuck with me.
I also found the motivations of the characters very believable, because people tend to do irrational things when issues of love or loyalt... Read more
Review: The Dragon Songs Saga is a different take on an alternate world. Expertly crafted and action-packed, it was hard to put the book down. Lots of twists and unexpected turns to the plot; the characters and storyline could rival Game of Thrones. Read more
