MarkReads.net

Neil Gaiman recently linked to this site on his blog, and after reading a few paragraphs of it I had to link it here: http://www.markreads.net/reviews.

Mark Reads is a blog by Mark Oshiro that is entirely dedicated to his chapter-by-chapter first readings of a variety of popular novels, usually fantasy and science fiction series.  I’m usually not a huge fan of this type of commentary, which usually pops up on fan sites as “re-reads” of big series, but Mark’s singular wit makes reading his site almost as entertaining as reading the source material.

A little taste, from a wrap-up post on how many of his predictions for George R. R. Martin’s A Feast for Crows were shattered upon actually reading the book:

WHERE THE FUCK IS RICKON. The forgotten Stark! OMG how hilarious would it be if we get to book seven and all the Starks are dead and Rickon just emerges from a cave and is like I’M KING OF THE NORTH, FUCKERS. Okay, an actual prediction: We’ll find out where he is and what he’s been doing. Nope. The eternal forgotten Stark. Where the fuck is he?

He also comments on watching TV and movies at MarkWatches.net, where he is currently watching Battlestar Galactica for the first time (God how I envy him that).
