Book Review of Oz by Bobbie Darbyshire

So I said that I wouldn’t write reviews for fiction because it would hinder the experience of getting lost in a book – and going into a book wanting to review it is still something I won’t do.

Book Review of The Last Days of New Paris by China Mieville

 In 1950’s Paris, Surrealist paintings have come to life and roam the streets with Nazis and something darker. The story follows Thibaut, a young resistance fighter, as he navigates the treacherous Parisian streets.      Mieville’s writing style is interesting but I enjoyed the mysterious, ‘surreal’ feeling that it brought me as I read along.Continue reading “Book Review of The Last Days of New Paris by China Mieville”
