Towers of Books Come Tumbling Down!

I love all kinds of books! For all my friends, I am known on GR as Alicja. I don't stick with a genre, that's boring. Instead you'll get reviews from the most random assortment of fiction and non-fiction works. It's probably due to my interests being as eclectic as my book tastes.


I'm a girlfriend-loving bisexual, science fiction geek, PC gamer, historical fiction devourer, hiker, atheist, history buff, opera lover, vegetarian, kayaker, metal and hard rock concert goer, science nerd, politics debater, world traveler, M/M romance fan, and I have the ability to transform from an adult-like hard-working professional into a screaming fangirl in five seconds flat.

The House of the Dead review:


I am so, so torn about reviewing this one. I love that we get one more look at Ianto's past and get 'the' moment between Jack and Ianto. It was sweet and sad and made me cry... and yet... the plot holes to keep Ianto dead were just so huge. I know they didn't want to bring him back but they could have. Why, oh, why did they need anyone to remain back with those rocks? They could could have just left them and ran... Five stars for great emotional moments and adding some great info on Ianto's past. Four stars given because, if Goss wasn't mandated to keep Ianto dead by the powers that be we could have had Ianto back.
