Thomas M. Wagner runs the website and reviews the books. (He has a nice welcome page here). Books are rated on a 10 point scale, denoted by stars and half-stars - so, 1 star, 1.5 stars, -- up to 5. He covers both popular and obscure science fiction and fantasy - aka "speculative fiction" - and he's really good at it.
I have found books on this site that will stay with me forever. To name a few:
Spin (5 stars)
The Lies of Locke Lamora (5 stars)
It's also fun to read the reviews of books that you've already read. For me, to name a few keepers:
A Game of Thrones (4.5 stars)
The Golden Compass (5 stars)
Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrel (5 stars)
Of course, vindication is also satisfying:
The Hunger Games (2.5 stars)
The Eye of the World (2 stars) <<<(a must for Jordan readers)
The fact that this is an awesome site is only part of the reason I'm posting about it. I want to ensure future books reviews, and the best way I can think of to support the site is to let more people know about it. So, you are hereby encouraged to check out the website. :]
