On Further Review- Will Also Reads Stuff!

Here’s my repository for books I’ve read that I think will interest others. I give the title and a link to my review for that book. I’ll divide the ones I explored on this site in my Classics You’ve Never Read series from the books of fellow indies as I read them over time. All have been great in their own way.  Check back here to follow the links whenever you need a new recommendation!

Classics You’ve Never Read

Here are links to all the columns I’ve done around great works of classic literature that you only saw on the screen. Admit it! And I try to point out a theme or idea that would be of interest to readers and therefore to writers as well.

The Scarlet Pimpernel

A look at the idea of secret identity in the first book ever to have one.

The Mask of Zorro

The theme of secret identity continues, but nearly everything else is different.

The Phantom of the Opera

World-building, inside a building.

Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

The ultimate “inside story”

The Invisible Man

H.G.Wells’ mystery takes an unusual point-of-view. Everybody else’s.

The Mysterious Island

Can a tale have unbroken success and still, like, work?

The Island of Dr. Moreau

Oh the humanity! Among other things.

A Christmas Carol

Simply, the greatest of them all.

The Count of Monte Cristo

Fortune arrives. Half the tale to go?


Wish you’d read it? Careful!


Danger lurks: what’s your hurry?

The Werewolf

Where? Search me.

The Mummy

Because I’d done the others.
