    Okay, this book was kind of a mess and I'm mad because I had been looking forward to it for months. It started off pretty well but then devolved into one of the most boring and vampire books I have ever read. Structurally, the book was poorly organized without a cohesive plot to ho...

    Although I'm not into vampires so much I do love a good epistolary novel so I was intrigued enough to pick this one up. I was hoping for a unique take on such an overdone trope. The pacing was uneven, alternating between being really interesting and even exciting and really, really bor...

    Boy, it's been a long time since I binge-read something, rather than serially reading it along with a stack of 4-6 other things. But I blew through A People's History of the Vampire Uprising in less than 24 hours. I gave it 3 stars, but that's provisional. Still trying to figure out wh...

    I found myself wondering if I was suffering from some strange new illness which infects the mind as pretty much every review I've read of People's Uprising has been positive, if not gloaming - er, glowing. However, the members of my book club have reassured me I am not crazy - this...

    I got this book as an ARC at a library conference. And I wanted to like it. I wanted to love it. It?s sci-fi written by a person if color?my fave! But the writing is really rough and the plot doesn?t go anywhere and I just found the whole thing really frustrating. Plus, the autho...

    I happened to find this audiobook as a "new title" from one of the libraries I use via Overdrive. The title struck my curiosity and reminded me of World War Z, except with a vampire spin. Figured I would give it a go. I wasn't disappointed. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5...

    I'm not sure I've ever read a book anything like this one before. The style is something like the script for a fictional documentary, with events laid out in (mostly) sequential order. There is no principal main character but rather input from the perspectives of several characters who...

    http://www.themaineedge.com/buzz/a-pe... There?s truth in the old adage that you shouldn?t judge a book by its cover. However, I would argue that in some cases, you CAN judge a book by its title. For instance, take Raymond A. Villareal?s new novel ?A People?s History of...

    2.5 stars. It took me a long time to get through this book and it was basically a disappointment. It held such an intriguing premise and did have clever bits of ideas and insights, but much of it was just boring. It was a long, drawn out documentary of the rise of the Gloamings (vampir...
