I review THE BLACK MOTH by Georgette Heyer at The Project Gutenberg Project

the black moth by georgette heyer
Did you know Georgette Heyer's first novel is in the public domain?

The Black Moth has EVERYTHING: kidnapping, highwaymen, cheating, a villain you love to hate because he's the only character with a sense of humor, secret earls, a shrieking harpy of a wife, heiresses, star-crossed lovers, duels, sword fights, fashion, a put-upon manservant/sidekick, love affairs... I could go on. Is it crazy over-the-top? YES. Does it go too far at times? YES. Do I think it's Heyer's best work? I certainly hope not. BUT—did I enjoy the hell out of it? YUP.

I review NIGHTCRAWLER at Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Books

nightcrawler challenger srt 380
This week, I review the movie Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. It's definitely a thinking person's thriller!

I love it when filmmakers take a trope like a car chase and turn it completely on its head, which is what happens in Nightcrawler. Now that's entertainment.
