This site is my main dumping ground for book reviews, essays, and media-related thoughts. I use a simple rating system based mostly on whether or not what I read/saw/played is something I would hand to other people, or something I would tell them to keep away from.
Rating statuses are as follows, though most should be pretty self-obvious.
Highly Recommended – If you know me, I’ve probably tried to get you to try this at least once.
Recommended – Something I liked, but I’ll probably hold off bugging you about when you’ve read it.
Neutral – Maybe I liked it, maybe I didn’t, but there are some pretty big things that didn’t hang together,
Not Recommended – My personal opinion is not to waste your time.
