Review – Fellside by M.R. Carey

Review – Fellside by M.R. Carey

I read a comment elsewhere that described Fellside as “Orange is the New Black with ghosts.” I’ve never seen OITNB, but I’ve assumed there are comedic elements. There is no comedy in the Fellside prison, but there is a ghost. Instead, life in Fellside is dark, dark, dark, as are the female inmates themselves.

Review: The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey

The Girl with All the Gifts might be my favorite book of 2014 (so far).  It’s certainly in my top 5.  Before I discuss the book, I have to discuss the synopsis.  I feel like I’ve been complaining about synopses a lot recently, usually because they don’t reflect the tone of the book.  This is probably the most egregious example.  The synopsis is written as though a very young child with a very limited vocabulary is speaking.  You would rightfully… Read more »
