🚙 Road trip to Vancouver and we stopped by Revelstoke BC to enjoy this view - foggy morning 🏞

🚙 Aaron Kwok (HK singer and actor) at Kuala Lumpur. It was decades ago!

🚙 My somewhat OCD counts? I have an unhealthy obsession with cleaning which drives my family crazy!

My final monthly summary of 2017. Other than a whopping three bails, I had a really good month, more than 4000 pages and 50+ hours - reread some of my favorites (Red Rising & A Christmas Carol) and read some great new books as well. Looking forward to reading some more great reads in 2018 (January‘s most anticipated to come soon).

Andrew65 A great month, especially given the hiccup. 😊👍 2y

Huge thanks to @TrishB for introducing me to Evan Smoak. The Nowhere Man is the sequel to Orphan X and I think it‘s even better than its predecessor. This is a taut, violent, edge-of-your-seat thriller with a villain worthy of the best James Bond film and an ending that will leave you screaming for the (not yet available) next book. Gregg Hurwitz has graduated to the rank of auto-buy author. Run, don‘t walk, to read this series! #AllTheStars

mjdowens WOW! Just read the sample for Orphan X. I️ would prefer the actual book, but I️ want to read this one right away so I️ just got the ebook. Any story that sucks me in that quick is a winner to me. Thanks for sharing👍 2y

Rene makes me think of the villain in the Bond film, Skyfall - trying so desperately to seem composed, cultured, and in control, but in reality, he‘s bat-crap crazy. I half expect him to remove some prosthetic causing his face to melt, or something equally disturbing.

TrishB Lol 😂 a great analogy! 2y

Google translate is a wonderful thing. 😉

LibrarianJen Telling and death? Without seeing the whole passage it‘s hard to grasp the concept. 2y
DGRachel @LibrarianJen The quote is “tell him, Nando.” Perhaps not critical in context, but I appreciate being able to translate little phrases like this that pop up. I think it makes for a richer reading experience. 2y
Andrew65 I also use this facility when reading. 😊 2y

This was an unexpected second instalment for Orphan X. You expect a story where The Nowhere Man is saving people but instead you have a story where he needs to save himself. What sometimes feels like a slow burn is actually a great ploy to help you appreciate the helplessness Evan finds himself in. With twisted psychpathic characters pulling the strings the story unfolds, with a few predictable bits, this is a good thriller.

Just as exciting as the first book. Smoak is given a more human depiction this time as we see him battle guilt, love and loss throughout. Of course there's just as much action as the first one but who doesn't love a tough guy with a heart!

"Animal from the Muppets is my spirit animal." A rare bit of humor in this fast-paced thriller. Scott Brick rocks the narration. Highly recommended.

The sequel to Orphan X is every bit as exciting as the first book. Evan Smoak is the former operative now working freelance, and he finds himself taken hostage and becoming the one who need help. The story follows him as he tries to free himself and save two people who need him.
It's wide open for a follow up. I hope it comes soon.

TrishB I enjoyed this too 😀 3y

A couple of years ago, I met Gregg Hurwitz at Murder & Mayhem in Muskego - a one day conference featuring lots of mystery author. I was quite surprised to find mention of Muskego and Jon Jordan (Crimespree Magazine) in the book! It's also a great book - I'm liking Evan Smoak.
