Quarterly review: FY14Q4

[Each quarter I do a quick roundup of the book and film reviews on Goodreads and Letterboxd. These reviews are too short and off-the-cuff to be included with the more indepth reviews I do on this site.]

Books

The first book I completed this quarter was Douglas Coupland’s new Kitten Clone: The History of the Future at Bell Labs for which I have a review forthcoming in the Literary Review of Canada. Stay tuned for that. In the meantime, here are some off-the-cuff reviews from other books this quarter.

★★★★☆ Midnight Riot

★★★★☆ Political Order and Political Decay: From the Industrial Revolution to the Globalization of Democracy

★★★☆☆ Leviathan Wakes

★★★★★ Superman: Red Son

★★★★☆ You Have to F–king Eat

★★★★☆ The Modern Intellectual Tradition: From Descartes to Derrida

★★★★★ The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

★★★☆☆ Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of Anonymous

Film

Wow. I only watched 7 films this quarter, 2 of them rewatches. Not a lot of activity. The best film I saw was made in 1976. The only review I had was this line for my 3-star review of Rise of the Guardians:

I love the fact that my kids now imagine Santa Claus as a heavily tattooed Russian wielding dual broadswords!
