About the Complete Review

The Complete Review is a leading Internet book review site, with a focus on international fiction; the Literary Saloon blog offers literary news, commentary, and links. 

Since 1999 I have been providing reviews, news — and links! — and there are now more than 4000 titles under review. And practically all the content on the site (and all the linking ...) is done by ... me [M.A.Orthofer].

Time magazine named the Complete Review one of the 50 Coolest Websites in 2005, while The New York Times Book Review has called it: “one of the best literary destinations on the Web”

It's tremendously gratifying to see that the site is of interest and use to so many readers, in so many countries, and I would of course like to keep expanding coverage. Any support you can provide is welcome and much appreciated.
