I believe this is a case of Who is your daddy and What does he do? This was not even a horror book!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
I just reread NOS4A2 so that I can watch the TV series, and I thought I‘d give The Fireman another shot. I can‘t seem to get past a quarter of the book. Did anyone else have that problem? Does the story get better? I loved NOS4A2 but this one I‘m not sure about.
Because my drive to work has been awful lately, with tons of construction delays, I‘ve taken to audio driving. So now my #bookoutlet orders look like this! 👀 📚
Proud of my son every day, but especially when he‘s photographed saving a 🐶
We just finished The Fireman by Joe Hill! When I picked it up from the library I was a tad worried about what I had gotten myself into. I was pleasantly surprised to fly through all 747 pages in 3 sittings! I couldn't put it down! 📖 I would recommend this book to anyone willing to read it! 5/5 🔥
On its face, this is a novel about a deadly spore that was introduced into the world by the melting ice caps. The deeper story is about the heights and depths of human experience, the story each human life holds, and the desire of humanity to live that story together.
I wanted to see more of the eponymous Fireman and the final “twists” seemed obvious to me, but it was still an excellent story from Joe Hill.

I didn‘t get to read last night because it‘s fire department banquet season (one was last night and one is next weekend) so I am making up for it hardcore this morning with more progress on my #readersgonnaread book!
However I did somehow win one of the centerpieces for the 2nd year in a row ! 🤷🏼♀️
😍💖🙏 Thank you @Erofan your package came today, I am so happy, I didn't know you were sending anything (big hugs for you and Masha)
Tell her thank you for the letter it warmed my heart and you have cheered me up. 💖💖💖💖📚
“Humanity is worse than flies. If even one dried nugget of offal survives the flames, we‘ll be swarming all over it. Fighting about who owns it and selling the most fragrant chunks to the wealthy and the gullible. You‘re afraid it‘s the End Times because we‘re surrounded by death and ruin. Death and ruin is man‘s preferred ecosystem.”

“There's something horribly unfair about dying in the middle of a good story, before you have a chance to see how it all comes out. Of course, I suppose everyone ALWAYS dies in the middle of a good story, in a sense. Your own story. Or the story of your grandchildren. Death is a raw deal for narrative junkies.”

It was exciting!!! The world is on fire, the nurse, who doesn't give up, the mysterious fireman and the strange black with gold markings in the form of hieroglyphs 😱 The tragedy of the world is accompanied by a little of cute humor and innocent love! The main idea of the book is the conviction that whatever tragedy happened to humanity, people are able to aggravate it 😔
“You know, we might‘ve fucked up the planet, sucking out all the oil, melting the ice caps, allowing ska music to flourish, but we made Coca-Cola, so goddamn it, people weren‘t all bad.”
I could not stop thinking about coke fizz. So that‘s all I got. Though I now know I have to read this book!

I've been listening to this at work the last few days. I loved it. I haven't read too much by Joe Hill, but I have liked what I've read. I look forward to finding more stuff by him.
The premise of the story was promising but it never turned into a solid storyline. It felt like lots of rambling about the people living in the commune. It‘s a very long story that could have been told in half the size of the book. I will read another book from this author so he can redeem himself in my eyes. 😉
1. OMG! Teleport!! Don‘t want to know all the dreck & craziness in people‘s heads, and imagine being able to teleport to Paris or London, to a peaceful mountain cabin or a beach in Fiji instantly! You could see the whole world without the hassle or expense of traveling. Now I‘m sad that I can‘t actually do it! 😢
2. Finally read my signed copy! 👨🚒
3. Get fit, get organized, & lots of bookish resolves.
4. Rewatching Breaking Bad
This was an entertaining read, full of action, suspense, and lots of Stand Easter eggs. IMHO, it‘s a little chaotic and could have benefited from a tighter focus, and the ending (again, in my opinion), somewhat falls short. Regardless of these issues, I couldn‘t turn the pages fast enough to find out what happens.
I read NOS4A2 a couple years ago and didn‘t like it, but I gave this book to my father last Xmas and he loved it. I‘m so glad I gave Hill another try as this is a hell of a book. Also, Kate Mulgrew as the narrator! Amazing. Where do I go from here? What‘s your favourite Joe Hill novel?
Yesterday I was talking to my brother about cutting down on my book buying because I can‘t find books that I know that I have. I said that I was going to stick with my TBR, the library, and free books for a while. Technically these books were free, but a free will donation was asked for to benefit St. Jude‘s Hospital. So guess who gave a donation.
Guys, I'm so sorry but I'm going to bail on this one. I had this on a hiatus but now I can't seem to get back into the story. It's dragging so much. It's me, not the book really- I've been falling into a bit of a reading slump. So, @scripturient I'll try to get this into the mail for you tomorrow or early next week! This started out interesting but I don't care about the characters anymore...
I can‘t think of a single thing that I didn‘t like about this book, and I‘m not sure what took me so long to get to it. I loved the premise, the writing is solid, the characters are fantastic, and the story just flows along in such a way that it was very hard to stop listening. 🔥
What a riveting listen!!! This kicks off my first Spooky read of October - and I couldn‘t stop listening to this one at all- I gasped out loud, startled my loved ones and could barely #AudioColor through the thrills! I‘m going to have to re-read NOS4RTU to see which of his books I like the best... it‘s a tough call between the two!!
Late-night reading this #chunkster about a virus that threatens #AllThePeopleInTheWorld to spontaneously combust...what?! I'm reading this for my #HorrorPost bookclub #ScreamsByMail and this was selected by the lovely @GatheringBooks. I'm 300 pages in and enjoying it but I have to admit I'm sensing a few issues. A plot-driven absorbing read is just what I need to plough through my cold, though!
#SeptemberDanes @Cinfhen @Kalalalatja
I have a #fascination with the generosity of Littens!! The latest installment of #screamsbymail is here with a lovely additional surprise from @danibolahood 😍 You really didn't have to! Thank you so much again. This one is THICK (and @reggie re-read this one just for the bookclub!) but I'm going to try to get to it ASAP.
