Public Notes

Recent Activity

  • Ronan shared from The Aquitaine Progression by Robert Ludlum
    Note: Really enjoyed this. I had great difficulty putting it down, even when falling asleep. Some of the twists verge on preposterous but Ludlum sells them convincingly.
  • Ronan shared from Passport to Panic by Eric Ambler
    Note: Another pretty decent effort from Ambler. It seems a bit slow in places, but on the whole I enjoyed it.
  • Ronan shared from Skytip by Eric Ambler
    Note: Another timeless page-turner. I did have a few moments where I thought the lead character was being a.fool, but Ambler sells it well enough.
  • Ronan shared from The Dalai Lama's Cat by David Michie
    Note: This is a delightful piece of work. It's very plainly "The Basic Tenets of the Dalai Lama's Teachings as told by His Cat with Transparent Allegories", but it's very well written and never feels condescending or didactic. It may merely amuse you, or it may actually make you stop and think.
  • Ronan shared from Turing & Burroughs: A Beatnik SF Novel by Rudy Rucker
    Note: So this was fun. I'm not familiar enough with Burrough's letters to compare with Rucker's fictional ones, but they read well in the voice of Burroughs as I know it. There's a bit less of the emotional roller coaster conversations, and the whole thing hangs together nicely.
