    Last night I finished THE RIVER by Peter Heller. A little heavy on the exposition and character development, but I get what Heller was trying to do -- really create a character-driven narrative so that you fear for them and feel their plight. Still could have a used a little editing to trim some fat. But all in all, pretty darn good.

    I think next will be Bernard Taylor's new short-story collection from Valancourt.

    Just finished Brother and it's definitely now one of my favorite books I've ever read.

    It was a great read. I will be trying something else by this author.

    It definitely could have been shorter.

    Finished - At Van Eyckmann's Request: A Hudson River Horror Story

    Very interesting, and well written with plenty of action. My only complaint is that the author includes too much detail in the surroundings wherever that may be.

    Reading - The Book Of Destiny
    An in-depth analysis of the Apocalypse. Interesting, but very dense with with religious references and sourcing. I really need a nice long vacation to appreciate this in its entirety.

    I finished reading The Sea Flower by Ruth Moore. I liked it a lot. I also finished reading Our Lady Of The Shadows by Tony Richards. That is an excellent collection. Now I'm finally going back to reading The Screaming Mimi-the second part of the Fredric Brown double I started earlier.

    Finished Brother and now need to find something else to read. I was not blown away by Brother but did like it. I will say I do not feel like it will ever be a re-read for me.

    I feel like I have to re-read it. Seems like it's one of those books that will feel very different when you read it after knowing how it all turns out.

    Yeah I hate how the spoiler doesn't hide in the preview window on the latest post feed. You could pad your paragraph before the spoiler so the spoiler is pushed further down until there's no room for it to appear in the preview window.
