Tessa's Book Review: Snapper by Brian Kimberling

    Like Seinfeld, Snapper by Brian Kimberling is a book about nothing.  But it's an amiable, pleasantly aimless story told by Nathan Lochmueller, a young man wandering around, looking for work or girls or something. Along the way, he opines about southern Indiana in a pretty negative way. The Michelin Guide to Indiana by Nathan Lochmueller is real short, he declares.

Tessa's DVD Review: Oblivion

I love a good action scifi--but not Oblivion.  This derivative film features moments that seem familiar embedded in a tired plot. The momentum is slow throughout, and, even though production values are good, I can’t recommend this movie.

Tessa's Book Review: Wisp of a Thing by Alex Bledsoe (2nd in his Tufa series)

Lots of authors have an amazing first novel and then simply fade away.  But others learn and improve, becoming exceptional craftsmen, even masters, of literature.  Alex Bledsoe is well on his way to being one of the latter.  A year ago I reviewed Bledsoe's Wake of the Bloody Angel, the fourth book in another series.  Then I went back, as I said I would, and read the first one in that series.  I was seriously disappointed by it--very graphic sex and violence, not made up for by quality.
