REVIEW: IMAGINE THERE'S NO HEAVEN

kane

"Stephens begins to identify virtuous and vicious cycles of historical-social development that impacted the development in understanding and discussing unbelief. Either a given society was interested in learning, observation and rational discussion, which allowed atheistic ideas to flourish, or a society was closed-minded, authoritarian and ideologically religious which was not only dangerous for such ideas but for the individuals having them."

REVIEW: THE AFTERLIFE OF STARS

kane

"The quasi-supernatural elements of the text read as entirely believable, if also wholly unsettling. Another way of putting it: the "realist" portrayal of the Island already reads as magical and out-of-time and so when eerie things begin happening the reader accepts these moments as what they are: eerie and entirely possible in the space/place of Sweetland."READ MORE


REARVIEW: SLACKER

kane

"'I always thought to be a slacker would be a badge of honour,' says Linklater. 'Other people saw [that] as negative... to mean bummer, or loser-type people. But to me that was always kind of heroic if you were doing your own thing and living a life of purpose and passion and working on your own thing and not really selling out to commercial interests in your life. You felt good about how you spent your time and you didn't feel your life was too compromised. That that would be a worthwhile, successful way to live. To depict that, I thought would be a positive thing.'"READ MORE

REVIEW: THE BACK OF THE TURTLE

kane

"King [suggests] that the roots of evil are complex and that evil-doers are perhaps not so different from us as we would wish. The implication is that, faced with environmental catastrophe, what is needed is not merely an easy demonization of someone else but a broad survey of the shared landscape and a penetrating, if discomfiting, look in the mirror."READ MORE
