S J Howard

Hilarious, absolutely hilarious, but refreshingly intelligent as well. This blog, run by a British medical student, runs the gamut from political commentary to a E! Hollywood-esque article on the romance of Barbie and Ken. One of the best ways to start the day.

Visual Aesthetics – 10

A simple white and blue layout. It won’t win any awards for creativity, but it’s well organized and doesn’t fuddle your mind with complicated graphics and font. Consistent font sizes and logical formats make reading both easy and relaxing.

User Friendliness – 10

Everything’s organized so that navigation is almost intuitive. Entries are archived by month, and links are grouped according to categories. The writing is intelligent but not high-falutin – in fact, the style is very crisp.

Reading Enjoyment – 10

Witty writing, intelligent opinions, good variety of topics -what’s there not to like?

User Info – 9

Offers interesting commentary on the news of the day, as well as timeless human interest features that are either thought provoking or funny. There’s even a section with samples of academic work, for those who are interested in literature or medicine.

Overall Experience – 10

It’s intelligent without being academic, opinionated without being arrogant, well-written without lapsing into the self-obsession that can often occur when you fall in love with your own wit. A fantastic read.
