The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling
The Casual Vacancy

Clark, October 22, 2012

I have to admit that I was skeptical about this book. I wasn't sure that J.K. Rowling could write a story for adults that would be worth reading. I am glad to say that I was wrong. It is a powerful story that will stay with you long after you read it. It is obvious that J.K. Rowling really knew what she was writing about.

It is not a book for children and it was never marketed for children. It is for adults. Don't bother reading if you expect this book to be similar to the Harry Potter series. Do read this book if you enjoy reading works from authors who are truly talented and on top of their game. I cannot recommend this book enough.

Nocturnal by Scott Sigler

Clark, June 13, 2012

I find it hard to believe that this book is 566 pages. It felt like 100 pages. I haven't read a book this fast in a long time. Scott Sigler really paces his story well. He doesn't give it all away up front. Sigler practically keeps the reader turning the pages even though something scary, suspenseful and/or gory awaits. Many times I found myself thinking that "no, Sigler won't do that or go there" but yes, he does. He really doesn't hold anything back and I really appreciate that. Scott Sigler is an awesome writer and Nocturnal is proof of that greatness. Can you really go wrong with a character named Pookie? I didn't think so.

I Didn't Mean to Be Kevin
I Didn't Mean to Be Kevin

Clark, May 6, 2012

The book far exceeded my expectations. I only say that because Caleb Ross is a relatively new author with only a few titles to his name. I had the assumption that this book would be average at best. Let me tell you how wrong I was to assume that. This book was excellent. I found myself fully engrossed in the story. Caleb Ross packs a lot into these 200 pages.

Overall, I was completely impressed with this book. Caleb Ross has a lot of talent for writing. I can't wait to read more of his work. 5 stars for "I Didn't Mean To Be Kevin."

77 Shadow Street by Dean R Koontz
77 Shadow Street

Clark, January 18, 2012

This book is scary. It was scarier than expected. I have read lots of scary books that have not put me on edge the same way that 77 Shadow Street did. Koontz can really write unique stories that keep the reader turning the pages. Yes, the one fault I have with this book is that Dean Koontz can get "wordy." He tends to over-describe which lots of readers hate. It does not ruin the story, but it can be distracting. The book probably deserves a 4 due to the "wordiness" but the abundance of scary moments earns the book a 5.

11/22/63 by Stephen King

Clark, December 4, 2011

My expectations were really high when I started this book. This book not only met my expectations but surpassed them. This time period (the 60's) has always been fascinating to me. The politics, Vietnam, the assassinations and the music has always been interesting to me. I love reading stories both fiction and non-fiction about this era. Stephen King's book is one of the best I have read about the 1960's. To be honest, this book is really one of the best I have ever read. I felt like I was there. I know that sounds corny but it really is true. This book is spectacular. It is a must-read.
