I've been falling farther and farther behind in my reviews, mostly because I simply don't have the time any more. Since that's not likely to change any time soon, I'm trying something new that I'll term "book reactions."

 

In book reactions, I won't try to summarize the book, I won't try to give my complete response, and I won't try to back up my perspective with quotes or textual evidence. I'm just going to write my unconsidered and haphazard gut reaction to the story.

 

On the positive side, I'm adding the restriction that each book reaction must be under 2500 characters. (My reviews, with spoiler sections included, tend to run 5000-10000 characters.)
