Massive solar flares hit Earth and soak the planet in radiation. The radiation destroys all electronic devices and kills over half of the population. The survivors fall into two groups:
- People that survived the solar flares, but the radiation scrambled their brains and turned them into mindless killing machines.
- People that survived the solar flares and seem to be unaffected by the radiation. They are forced to find a way live in their new post-apocalyptic world.
I enjoyed reading this book. The characters were interesting and relatable. Also, the story flowed well, which made the book easy to read.
I almost didn’t buy this book, because I thought it was a romance novel. I am not a fan of romance novels, but the name intrigued me. I decide to give it a try and I am really glad that I did.
The book is about a CEO of a local company that hires a woman to pretend to be his girlfriend, so his family would stop commenting on his lack of a love life. Though a series of weird circumstances. They accidentally get married. However, throughout the story they start to get to know each other and fall in love.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was funny and heart warming at the same time.
Borton’s book, Abomination was fun to read. The story is about a group of Marines that volunteered to participate in gene therapy experiments. The goal was to create warriors with enhanced strength, eyesight, and hearing.
Unfortunately, something went wrong in the lab and the Marines experienced physical changes that left them with an extreme desire to consume blood.
The scientific explanations didn’t make much sense, but it fit well within the story line. The characters were interesting and well developed. Also, there were numiouers twists within the story that kept me interested.
Big Pete is a hitman that was hired to kill a local minister. However, though a series of random events Pete decides to turn himself into the police and tells them about every hit he performed and every client that hired him.
The story was decent, but seemed a bit silly at times. Also, I would recommend the author watch a few prison documentaries. His description of Pete’s life behind bars as a death row inmate is ludicrous, because Pete freely interacts with the general population and is housed with random cellmates.
This book is about a cold case in which a drug dealer was murdered. The story gets twisted and convoluted, because it also involves a corrupt cop, the Italian Mob, a Latino gang, and a Chinese gang.
The story was moderately good; however, the way in which it was told created a lack of suspense.
This story takes place in Mississippi during the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. The main character is a young girl named Missy, who is consistently in danger from demonic forces that wish to kill her. Missy relies on the power of God and her guardian angel to defeat the evil that surrounds her.
I thought the book was okay. There are several scenarios that are a bit silly. Also, the characters seemed flat or one dimensional, which made it difficult to relate with them.
I enjoyed reading To Kill a Mockingbird, so I decided to read Go Set a Watchman. However, I didn’t care for the book.
It felt like the book was leading up to some climatic event, but it never happened. The characters interaction seemed bland and lacking in someway.
I found Go Set a Watchman to be a bit of a disappointment.
