Southern Comfort


Reading Rainbow

 

The font is big because LJ is MESSED UP! They forget to add the post-to-journal button but I can’t complain because it’s FREE.

 

Enuff. Read Joe Hill’s debut and it was engaging and fun until near the end when it got over-the-top, confusing and weird. I’ve seen this in horror novels a lot. The author seems to think anything goes because, “Dude, I’m a horror novelist.”

 

Whatever.

 

I skimmed a lot of tedious action, gore and incomprehensible junk to get to the ending.

 

In other bad news, I wasn’t amused with this offering. There’s some funny stuff but it’s bogged down in backstory and a lot of non-essential scenes. And it tries too hard.

 

Whenever I start feeling blue about my reading material, I return to something I know is near perfect like this.

 

It’s like a return to sanity and order.  The equivalent of a literary Calgon bath. AHHHH! Take me away.
