Review of HOOD by Evan Pickering

I don’t usually read a lot of dystopian thrillers, but I heard about it from a friend and picked it up. I really enjoyed the book – the characters are interesting and well developed, and as the reader, you can really feel their plight. I especially liked the moral gray area that the author explores. What would you be willing to do to save your family? 

Although the setting of the book is incredibly dark and scary,  the author does a good job of lightening up the plot with occasional bits of humor. Overall it was a great read and I’m looking forward to the sequel!

Review of COMMUNION by B Patterson

COMMUNION by B Patterson is available on Amazon at http://amzn.to/1tY4Xt9.

I’m not normally a huge reader of vampire books, but I gave this book a try and am glad that I did. Patterson presents a different take on the genre with a cast of interesting teenagers. I really enjoyed the unexpected twists and the ending was completely unpredictable. The dialogue was tight and snappy and hopefully we can see more from these characters. I would definitely recommend this book.

Review of DOCTOR FAUSTUS by Thomas Mann

DOCTOR FAUSTUS by Thomas Mann is available on Amazon at http://amzn.to/1rh3YiU.

This book is dense and not the fastest read in the world, but it is worth getting through. With his portrayal of the lead character, Mann makes such a great commentary on human nature. It isn’t always pretty, but it’s real and honest. I reread some of his passages over and over again because I couldn’t get enough of them. Looking forward to reading more of his books.

Review of CHILDREN OF PARANOIA by Trevor Shane

CHILDREN OF PARANOIA by Trevor Shane is available on Amazon at http://amzn.to/1xdyTAh.

I’m not normally a fan of apocalyptic fiction, but I loved this book. From the minute that I started it, I didn’t want to put the book down. The author Trevor Shane weaves a really interesting writing style in with a very unique plot that had me at the edge of my seat. As soon as I finished the book, I picked up number two in the series!

Review of LIVE AND LET DIE by Ian Fleming

LIVE AND LET DIE by Ian Fleming is available on Amazon at http://bitly.com/ZOXqku.

I didn’t get the same feel from this book as I did from Casino Royale which I thought was brilliant. There were moments when it was truly gripping, but others when it was offensive and easy to put down. Most of the time when I read suspense books I find myself glued to the page, but this book was rather disappointing.

Review of A DANGER TO HIMSELF AND OTHERS by J.E. Fishman

A DANGER TO HIMSELF AND OTHERS by J.E. Fishman is available on Amazon at http://bitly.com/1xdykq7.

I breezed through this book in a few days when I found myself glued to the page to find out what would happen next after the first two supposedly suicide bombings took place. Fishman does a great job of creating an authentic atmosphere for the reader. You are drawn into the NYC Bomb Squad and the story gives you a real feel for the tense atmosphere in the city. What’s interesting as well is the level of character development in the book. Fishman paints a picture of the intelligent driven hero who is also psychologically on edge. The most interesting character in my view though is the villain and the slow unraveling as the reader begins to understand why he is pursuing such a twisted vendetta. Great read and definitely a page turner.
