Nicholas Binge: Ascension (2023, Penguin Publishing Group) 3 stars

A modern Mountains of Madness

3 stars

If you've read Mountains of Madness, this is not really a retelling, but almost a continuation. An impossibly large mountain, a quest to conquer it, and things get weird. But unlike Lovecraft's novel, things are pretty much explained thoroughly by the end of Ascension. I struggle to think of a single loose thread now that I'm done with it. A little comic booky at the end.

Britney Spears: The Woman in Me (2023, Gallery Books) 4 stars

The Woman in Me is a brave and astonishingly moving story about freedom, fame, motherhood, …

A memoir of abuse

3 stars

This is a rough book. It's tough to believe that Britney endured all that was thrown at her. But I suppose this is the nature of abuse; it's a dynamic of the abuser's behavior and the abused's inability to find a way out.

I hope this encourages more victims to take action. And I hate that the onus is on them, as they don't deserve what's happening to them, but that's the only way things are going to improve.

Review of 'Seveneves' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Best book I've read all year. If you like Andy Weir (The Martian, Hail Mary), you'll love this. I'll never look at the moon the same way again. I only wish the book didn't lose its sense of urgency in Act 3, but there was a lot of ground to cover.
