I've been a book worm for pretty much my whole life. I've read many types of books over the course of my life, but currently the sorts of books I enjoy the most are fantasy and science-fiction. I particularly like it if these genre's are mixed with comedy like the style of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. I definitely can enjoy more serious fantasy and science-fiction though. I also enjoy vampire books, but not quite as much as I did when I was younger.

This blog is mainly for my book reviews, but I also post quotes and other random book related things. If you'd like to know more about the books I've read and am planning to read, I'm a member at several different book sites, and links to my profiles are listed under My Pages.

Review of Year Zero by Rob Reid

Year Zero is a very funny book and I absolutely loved it. This book makes fun of the music industry and copyright laws. The basic premise is that the rest of the universe is obsessed with Earth music, but before they became familiar with Earth laws they had already pirated so much Earth music that the universe owed all of its collective wealth to Earth in fines.

I gave this book five stars and would recommend it to anyone who likes humor/satire mixed in with their fantasy and sci-fi. Fans of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series will really be able to appreciate the author's use of humorous footnotes throughout the story.
