lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

The Goddess Chronicle - Natsuo Kirino, Rebecca Copeland This book was amazing. I don't know much about Japanese culture, or mythology, but this book was lots of fun to read anyway. The story was very well told, even though some parts were a little confusing (everyone switching places, and changing their minds about their intentions at the last minute), and the characters were well formed. I am not crazy about translated books, and this one had some flaws that were probably due to the translation, but it was better than most. I can't believe I have never heard of this series, especially since it features some of my favorite authors, but I can't wait to read the other books in it.
