Samir's Critical Corner

I love good writing. Samir's Critical Corner will have reviews on World Literature but you will also find reviews on various subjects like Mathematics or Tai Chi, and on specific niches like Nigerian writers.

Currently reading

South Sea Tales (Oxford World's Classics)
Robert Louis Stevenson
Progress: 122/289 pages
The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) - Patrick Rothfuss First fantasy book I picked up in a while. Good story telling and reasonably good writing for this genre. Most impressive aspect: the story is in first person p.o.v. which is a rare treat in fantasy. This choice and the style both helped to focus on character development with the plot being in the background. Looking forward to the next installment.
