As you might have noticed if you’ve been checking on LBR (as I’m sure you have) you’ll have noticed that it’s been quiet for the past three weeks. Deadly quiet. There’s one reason for this, and that is I’ve been away from home for all of that time. A mixture of lack of time, unreliable connectivity to the internet by staying with various relatives as I traveled across most of the eastern half of Canada meant I had very few opportunities to write any reviews or post anything at all. I did, however, have the time to read quite a decent mixture of novels and graphic novels, which for lack of having much more time now that I’m back home, I will review in series of posts consisting of condensed reviews. Below are reviews of the first three of the eclectic bunch of novels I read. A second post concerning with novels read and another looking at graphic novels will follow shortly.
