Something for the introverts

So this book has been laying around the office for quite some time, so I decided to take a look. What I was introduced to was a cute collection of cartoons showing every day Finns in social settings. Now, I have never been to Finland and I only know two Finnish people. But from what I can gather, they are highly introverted. This book shows a...

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

Seen the movie? Brat Pitt was hawt.
Toss out of your head everything you remember about the movie, even Brad Pitt.
This book is nothing like the movie in the least.
Still gripping and exciting, and way better.
The author, Max Brooks, takes us through the zombie apocalypse through interviews with people all around the world, from high profile political...

One of my top 5 reads

This book is in my top five list. Not sure what the other four are, but this one, definitely. Pressfield's knowledge of ancient Greek warfare is what makes this novel so special. Yes there is great writing and action and Spartans galore. However, it is descriptions of the Spartan regimen that is the true magic behind this book. I studied ancient warfare in college and none...

Rise: A Newsflesh Collection

This book holds many short novella style stories. I will review each one here for ease.
Countdown: This is the prequel to Feed. It’s a little bit on the history of the viral manipulation and incidents to cause the Kellis-Amberly virus we see in Feed. It’s pretty much the story of how medical research is wonderful, but as often that happens through history, humans have...

A most difficult read

A few years ago, I set about to read as many of the classics as I could. I think so many of us talk about how much we love them without really being honest about reading them.
This book was difficult at best to get through. The premise of the story is brilliant and we all are pretty familiar with it from TV, movies, cartoon...

If I had this gauntlet!

Another review of the source material for the Marvel Avengers movies. Once again, this is the source material, if you have only seen the movies, they loosely follow the concept. Previously I reviewed Infinity War here, this story to me is a bit closer to what was used in the movies...but not really. Here, the bad guy is someone called the Magus, the evil alter-ego of...

Daddy Daughter reading club

So let me start by saying that I read this book because I was video chatting with my teenage daughter one night (I'm currently deployed) and I asked her what she was currently reading. Her excitement over this book made me go on Amazon and immediately buy it so we could read it together and discuss during our video chats.
It is a Young Adult...

This ain't the movies!

Reader beware, if you are expecting the movies to have followed the source material religiously, you will be sadly mistaken. That said, the source material was that good, they used the basis of it for a movie, well several movies really.

Zombies, Conspiracies and Gravediggers, Oh my!

Area 187: Almost Hell, by Eric R Lowther is one of the best zombie books I’ve read in years. It is a stand-alone book, very long, but always exciting. It takes a look at the whole zombie genre from a different view. Rather than a worldwide apocalypse, this little outbreak happens within a small region of the United States, quartered off and labeled as Area 187.
