Re: What are you reading?

I am reading a variety right now.

 

 

Vixen  -Very good so far. Really pulls you into the story.

 

 

Sandman Slim  - described as a fantasy, noir thriller in reviews. Very interesting writing style. So far I think the best description I saw was Supernatural thriller.

 

 

The Pawn (Patrick Bowers Files Series #1)  - First in a series. Very good mystery thriller. This happened to be on a Free eBook friday awhile back.

Re: What are you reading?

Makes for a great read for Halloween

 

 Encounter at North Road House When a masked, unbeatable Jason-type psycho-killer enters a house to take more lives, the house that he enters is haunted by inhuman creatures and ghosts, who shut him in.  The masked psychopath then goes to war with the ghosts and creatures of the haunted house.

 

The masked-psycho thought he was moving on another ordinary house - but what he enters into is a haunted realm.  The best thing about this book is who is the predator and who is the prey?  This one just came out and highly recommended

Hi MsTweet, I'm reading Vixen too. Do you think YA is the right genre for Vixen?

Freedom 

 

Awhile back, not sure if in this thread or another, I mentioned I was reading Freedom.  I finished and here is my entry in my reading joournal:

 

This is not the book of the century, as claimed by a critic.  The storyline of the book is made up of unsympathetic characters repeatedly making bad decisions.  I think the book lacked momentum because I didn’t have the feeling of wanting to know what would happen next.  The momentum for me occurred halfway through the book when I felt the need to finish the book to rid myself of the characters in the book.  Then, a strange thing happened.  About 150 pages from the end, I understood the “big picture” of the book and realized that the characters had to be and act the way they did as part of the big idea of the book.  I found I really liked the ending of the book and could appreciate what the author was doing.  However, since I spent a lot of time being so annoyed with the characters, I cannot rate the book highly, despite it being a well written book.  If you don’t get the “big picture” of the book, I think it would be a hard book to enjoy.
