Book Reviews by Melissa N. Hayes-Gehrke

I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy. Once I read a book, it often sticks in my mind for days, so I thought I'd write down my thoughts a little more formally as a review. Sometimes I concentrate on themes in the book, sometimes I think more about the background science, sometimes the characters - whatever strikes me. I usually wait a few weeks after I've finished the book to write the review in order to let the ideas I have about the book coalesce; however, this means that I may get a few details incorrect, despite my efforts to look up relevant items in the book.

All of my reviews have spoilers for the books and are, of course, completely my own opinions. I welcome any email with comments.
