Anton. B - Book Reviewer
Hi there, I am Anton. I am a long time fantasy reader and a tabletop fantasy RPG gamer.
I fell in love with the genre when I was about 7. I was a reluctant reader back then... And then BOOM! My grandfather started reading 'The Hobbit' to me. That was a game changer (or a gateway drug - you can look at it either way). I was so anxious to find out 'what's next' that I had to take over the reading duty and never stopped since.
These days I like my fantasy reads to be low-magic, with a clever intrigue, realistically gritty, perhaps with a touch of grimdark. But I also enjoy, historical fiction (range of IX to XV CE is my sweet spot) and non-fiction on civilisation, comparative history, nature of the physical word, astronomy, thinking, decision-making, behavioural economics and the history of science.
