I’m Kristopher and I review books; both old and new. You can also find essays about books that I’ve read, as well as my thoughts on what it means to be a reader.
I’m a keen runner, and on weekends, you can find me at the local library avoiding my fines – which is why I’m into running!
A few of my favourites:
- Ask the Dust – John Fante
- Journey to the End of the Night – Louis-Ferdinand Céline
- Portnoy’s Complaint – Philip Roth
- Requiem for a Dream – Hubert Selby Jr
I’ll be posting new content (Reviews, Essays, Articles etc.) every Thursday, with journal entries in between.

What makes a great book? The characters? Plot? Pacing?
I add up all these components to give a unique value, with an average rating out of ten displayed at the end of each review. For me, I always look for the emotion in which the book in question evokes.
Regardless of whether it’s good or bad, if it manages to bring feelings of happiness, sadness, love, fear, disgust etc, these are all better than a book that’s just plain boring.
