The Illearth War by Stephen R. Donaldson, Review

Category: Books, Reviews, Stephen R Donaldson by Eoghann, published November 12th, 2005 @ 6:28 pm

The Illearth War is the second book in Stephen R. Donaldson’s First Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, The Unbeliever. While each book in this trilogy tells a story in its own right they are part of an overall plot which really should be read in the correct order. After spending a little time with Covenant in […]

Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan, Review

Category: Books, Reviews by Eoghann, published November 6th, 2005 @ 5:21 pm

Knife of Dreams is 524th book in Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time fantasy series. Well actually its the 11th book, but it feels like a lot more than that by this time. The series is hugely popular, but all but the most dedicated of fans will tell you that over the course of the last […]

Category: Television, Reviews by Eoghann, published October 29th, 2005 @ 4:40 pm

Tripping the rift is an animated comedy by the Sci Fi Channel. For some reason I’ve never actually managed to catch an episode of it until now. However the complete first season has been released on DVD and I was offered a copy to review so I grabbed the opportunity to see […]

Lord Foul’s Bane by Stephen Donaldson, Review

Category: Books, Reviews, Stephen R Donaldson by Eoghann, published October 23rd, 2005 @ 10:43 am

Lord Foul’s Bane is a particularly hard book to review. The first book in The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant by Stephen R. Donaldson is sometimes unpleasant to read. Many reviews I’ve seen count that as a negative, however it was clearly part of the author’s intent. So while it may not be to every reader’s […]

Eldest by Christopher Paolini

Category: Books, Reviews by Eoghann, published October 16th, 2005 @ 11:08 am

Eldest is the second book in Inheritance, a fantasy trilogy written by Christopher Paolini. Paolini’s biggest claim to fame seems to be the fact that he published the first book in this trilogy (Eragon) when he was 19. A read Eragon a little while back and wasn’t particularly impressed. However, apparently a lot of […]

The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett, a Review

Category: Books, Reviews by Eoghann, published October 5th, 2005 @ 7:43 pm

The Light Fantastic is Terry Pratchett’s second Discworld novel. Once again the story revolves around the tourist Twoflower and failed wizard and reluctant guide Rincewind. However, unlike the first volume, The Light Fantastic presents us with a single cohesive story and takes the time to build on the very simplistic characters which we were presented […]

The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett, a Review

Category: Books, Reviews by Eoghann, published October 3rd, 2005 @ 3:14 pm

Somehow I’ve managed to go all these years and only read one Terry Pratchett book, specifically Good Omens, which he co-wrote with Neil Gaiman. When you consider the number of books that Pratchett has written and their popularity, thats a pretty big oversight on my part. So I decided to correct it starting at the […]

Battlestar Galactica Season One DVD Review

Category: Television, Battlestar Galactica, Reviews by Eoghann, published September 26th, 2005 @ 8:55 pm

I was fortunate enough to be given a copy of the Battlestar Galactica Season One DVD set for review. Thats right, its a review copy so I didn’t pay. Just in the interests of full disclosure. I say fortunate, not just because I was given it, but because the new Battlestar Galactica is […]
