After Michael Crichton passed away in 2008, they found some manuscripts and unfinished books. One of these was Micro, and Richard Preston was chosen to finish it. I am so glad he did. I found out the book doesn’t get real good ratings, so I was curious. I mean, come on. This was a Crichton book (partially). Here’s what I think about it.
It is done. End of Watch. The final book of the Bill Hodges trilogy. I read it. What happened to the characters of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers? I was curious too. What was up with Brady Hartsfield? I was curious to find out. Want to know what I think of the book?
“Payback is a bitch, and the bitch is back.” — Stephen King
I am a fan of Joe Hill’s work. I’ve had some plans on reading his books even before I read The Fireman. So it was about time I got to read Horns. And while I didn’t really have very high hopes, I was curious for this book that has turned into a movie as well. Here’s my review of the story.
Good doesn’t triumph over evil. There’s just random chance and death.
This is one of the messages Ethan Cross tries to tell us. I found this book at a local book fair and I’m very happy that I did. I hardly come by books that interest me, because those fairs are mostly littered with poor young-adult books.
Here’s what I think about The Shepherd.
Briefly before I left for our road trip, I was able to finish a book about teenagers with superpowers. Zeroes is a book written by three authors, and I found it on a Goodreads list full of superhero books. As you (may or may not) know, I am a big fan of super-humans and super-villains. I therefore had some expectations when I started reading this book.
Shit don’t mean shit. Or at least, that’s one of the statements that keeps returning in Finders Keepers. I finished it today, the second book of the Bill Hodges trilogy. As you might or might not know, I’m a Constant Reader. One of those that keep reading Stephen King’s books. Why? Well, the Master explains it himself in this book.
“… at least there were books. Books were escape.”
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.
