Book review of Vox by Christina Dalcher Summary of the book  This blurp is borrowed from the back of the book: “Jean McClellan spends her time in almost complete silence, limited to just one hundred words a day. Any more, and a thousand volts of electricity will course through her veins. Now the new government is in power, everything has changed. But only if you’re a woman.

    Book review: Do androids dream of electric sheep?

    This is my book review of Do Androids Dream of Electrical Sheep by Philip K. Dick. Book review of Do Androids Dream of Electrical Sheep I borrowed the book from a co-worker, who also reviews books (in Danish) in this laidback podcast LæsDen.dk – check them out if you speak Danish! I had confessed that I hadn’t yet read some of the older sci-fi works, so I ended up with this in my hand. Apparently, this is the novel that became Blade Runner, which I had heard of before. Summary of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep This summary is taken from the blurp on the back of the book.…

    Book review: Little Women

    Book review of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott Here’s my book review of “Little Women”. I read this book as part of the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge and you can follow my progress right here. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott was originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869, on request from Alcotts publisher. According to a few quick searches online, Alcott based the girls and their lives on her siblings and herself. Other fragments of research tell me, that she wasn’t exactly enjoying the stories too much herself, but wrote it for her publisher because they needed something for young girls. (Google it if you want…

    Research som forfatter – hvad er vigtigt?

    Research din bog – men hvad er vigtigt? Hvis du er forfatter eller godt kan lide at skrive, er du sikkert stødt på et problem i stil med ”hvad tjente en belgisk smed i 1746?”. Hvis du indimellem sidder og tænker ”er det her overhovedet relevant?” kan det her blogindlæg måske hjælpe dig. Jeg er som læser tit stødt på bøger der er rige på detaljer, fordi en forfatter har researchet deres emner. Nogle gange kan det dog også tage overhånd, og plottet forsvinder i detaljer og beskrivelser af autentisk fransk bestik fra 1890. Det er ikke alt læseren har brug for at vide. Men hvordan finder du ud af,…

    Book review: The 4 hour work week

    Book review of The 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris The 4 hour work week by Tim Ferris was first published in 2009 and promises an escape from the 9 to 5 day job. In my defense, I picked this book up at the Euro-train station in London, after being delayed for two days. I needed something to read. Summary “Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan–there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, or earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management,…
