The Modern Manuscript styles itself as a destination for finding great reads in all genres, whether they were published hundreds of years ago or yesterday. Because this is my credo, you won’t find negative reviews on this blog. In fact, the concept of “review” applies loosely here. Rather, consider these posts brief manifestos extolling the many virtues of a given book, while highlighting the occasional hiccup. After all, greatness doesn’t necessarily mean perfection!
