Book, Play, and Music Reviews
Whether used on a website or in a print publication, reviews of books, music, and local events help to develop readership and a sense of community.
As an avid reader and a literature major, I write engaging and intelligent book reviews. I also review local events, such as plays and music performances.
- Review of Daniel Defoe’s Moll Flanders
Classic novels such as Moll Flanders offer delightful opportunities for literary analysis and interpretation.
- Review of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island
In an attempt to explain Treasure Island’s enduring popularity, I discuss its themes of adventure and morality.
- Review of Dan Savage’s The Kid
Although literature is my first love, I also enjoy reviewing modern fiction and nonfiction, such as this humor book.
- "Frozen at Curious Theatre Tackles Icy Themes"
A well-written play can have just as much depth as a literary novel, as this Curious Theatre production demonstrates.
- "Tracy Letts's Bug Explores Depth of Human Weakness"
I reviewed the Curious Theatre production of this play, which has also been made into a movie due to its popularity onstage.
- Review of Susie Suh’s Live Performance
My review of Susie Suh’s opening performance appeared on a music blog I was contributing to at the time.
