Reviews from Zadie Smith and Neil Gaiman

I mention the reviews below because my interest is piqued. I would like to read both books.

Zadie Smith reviewed You’re Not a Gadget from Jaron Lanier, but integrates it into a piece on Mark Zuckerberg and The Social Network. As an aside, what she does in this review, to synthesize and create some new thoughts on a subject, is the very thing I wish to do in this blog. Of course, that is the mode of review in The New York Review of Books. But more often than not, the review is more an opinion piece by the reviewer than an engagement of the book.

 

Neil Gaiman reviewed Stephen King’s new collection of novellas: Full Dark, No Stars.
