McKillip’s Ombria

I purchased and read an ebook. I worried that reading on screen for a long time would bug me, but the opposite is true. I realized that I already read a lot on screen just checking the news and writing I like.

Ombria in Shadow is a great book. Patricia McKillip’s true conquest is one of language. It took me two chapters to really find a groove with the reading, but once I did, the book wasn’t long enough. I kept wanting the chapters to be longer, I kept wanting to spend more time with the characters. For me, that’s a mark of great writing.

For anyone who reads fantasy, here’s a chance for something different. For anyone who pointedly doesn’t read fantasy, here’s a chance for something different. I would definitely say that this is a reader’s book.
