Today, I finished another Gregg Hurwitz novel. I read The Nowhere Man, which is the second book of the Orphan X series. As in the first book, Evan Smoak finds himself in an incredible, unbelievable adventure. What starts with as little as a napkin holder, soon turns into the most dangerous mission The Nowhere Man has ever faced. Ball bearings within ball bearings.
I am a Constant Reader. At least, that’s how Stephen King calls us: the people that keep reading his books, one after the other. I’ve read a great deal of King books. Like really, a lot of them. But not all of them. Since I am a horror fan, I’ve waited with the Bill Hodges series as it is more a suspense/thriller story. In any case it’s not a horror story. Last week, I decided it was time to plunge into it.
Cold Hollow is a city in Vermont, where a lot of things tend to go the wrong way. And I do not mean wrong in a soft way. It’s a city of parolees, run by an ex-parolee. If necessary, they take the matters in their own hands. One of the least interesting things that happens, is the wedding of the mayor. And that’s mostly what this story is about…
I finished the third part of the Magic 2.0 series. I can only wait for Scott Meyer to finish his fourth book: Fight and Flight. The first book, Off to Be the Wizard, was a great read. Spell or High Water continued where the previous ended, both in story as in style. I really liked that book as well. Now, I’ve read An Unwelcome Quest, which again joins young wizard Martin Banks on his journey.
Hey readers! I’ve returned to a friend of mine, Martin Banks. He went to back in time to become a wizard. And the first book about his wizardry was awesome. Scott Meyer is doing a great job with this writing career of his. Like I said in the other blog post, the audiobooks are read by Luke Daniels. So it’s a great book, written by a great author and read by a great performer.

I’m not doing so well with this blog here. But don’t worry, I’m working on it! Yesterday, I finished the first book of a new series I found. Scott Meyer, also known for his web comics, did a great job with his first book Off to Be the Wizard.
If you like wizardry, tech jokes and some pop culture references, this book is what you are looking for! Those of you that prefer audiobooks, I can really suggest it. The audiobook is read by Luke Daniels and he’s a great audiobook performer.
Sorry folks. I’m reading so much at the same time these days, I forget to finish my books. But I did finish Weaving the Web, the second Cold Hollow story.
Was it a good story? Kinda.
Was it as good as its predecessor? Not really.
Why? Let’s find out.
