Loved it! This is topping my list of favorite Sager novels.
Ethan is haunted by the disappearance of his best friend 30 years prior. Returning to his childhood home unexpectedly he‘s forced to confront the events surrounding that day.
I enjoyed how the perspective was limited in the adolescent POVs, the way details were muddled or heightened. The mundane cul de sac where neighbors have their own secrets, the ominous “institute”. Great execution.

5feet.of.fury I did guess the ending & a major twist was fairly obvious, but it was so well plotted. 12h
IMASLOWREADER i just saw this in the barnes and noble web site 12h
5feet.of.fury @IMASLOWREADER I‘m a big fan of his books! They all have a different vibe but are very cinematic almost, & very thrilling 12h
readmyeyes Oooh, I just started this and am so excited to dive into it more this weekend! 10h

I read this around when it came out over 10 years ago, I was OBSESSED. I wanted to re-read & see if it still held up.

Written during PEAK urban fantasy times there‘s every supernatural creature you could think of (&1 you couldnt). It‘s diverse, it‘s SW positive, it‘s weird. Willows not an innocent MC, which I love. There‘s a couple off things, some dubious consent that is brushed off. &a few too many side plots. But it was (still) incredibly fun

Sons of the Harpy are becoming more bold &her dragons are growing wild
They bicker over how to address the Harpy. Hizdar enters to request the fighting pits be reopened, the city would get a tax payment but she declines
Townspeople come seeking justice for crimes committed. Finding a fair restitution is difficult. Others come blaming the dragons for deaths of their livestock with burnt bones, but 1 has the bones of a child

In some ways I enjoyed this. Gwen‘s POV starts very boring, there is character development, but I sometimes wonder why authors are so comfortable starting the FMC in the basement just so when there‘s any semblance of a backbone you have to cheer when the MMC can just be a “wonderful idiot” 95% of the time.
I enjoyed the Gwen & Art Are Super Queer theme, other plotlines (cultists, threats to the throne) are so far between I almost forgot about them

Bad. I unknowing ordered the “updated” version where they have cell phones &the war a character is returning from is Iraq instead of Vietnam. But nothing was fixed with the rest of the book (can‘t call&warn bc a phone isn‘t installed, communal dorm phones, outdated slang)
But even without that -family drama & relationships dominate the story
The 4 MCs have the same essence as the film, but the movie made them (deservedly) suffer so much more.

dabbe #fanofthepan! 🤩🤩🤩 5d
LibrarianRyan I read most lois duncan books in HS. but this one I read after the moive. It is so different. So much less horror. You are right about the family. I can not imagine it updated. There was nothing wrong with leaving it in the timeline it was in. They probably updated for the TV show. UGHHHH. 5d
5feet.of.fury @LibrarianRyan I didn‘t even know about the TV show! It was really odd because it was inconsequential to the plot, it just kept going along as it would have, it should have been a full remix or just left in the pre-cellphone era. 5d
LibrarianRyan @5feet.of.fury It was on prime. It only got 1 season. The ratings were pretty bad. It was an okay show, but only okay: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10937180/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_5_tt_8_nm_0_q_i%2520know%.... Apparently there is even a 2025 reboot coming with Jennifer and Freddy. Maybe like what they did with Scream? 5d

For Father‘s Day my dad likes to go to used & indie bookstores in some section of New England
This year we did:
-Montague Bookmill (Montague, MA)
-Federal Street Books (Greenfield, MA)
-Roundabout Books (Greenfield, MA)

I had highest hopes for Montague but while i found some goodies &they had a great cafe, Roundabout Books was my favorite selection of the 3. Federal Street was well curated for new books but used selection was eh.

Everyone is really going through it in this 1, but Ciri in particular is back in focus &proving herself as she searches for the Tower.
Still irregular pacing, cliffhanger, multiple POVs & things told from different times, which is not the most cohesive. But was very entertaining.

What an over the top end to Gwendy‘s trilogy.
Lots & lots of references to other King properties (I know I missed some)
It was weird, some parts were over the top, but this series always had been pretty random since the start so it‘s fitting. It has a lot of heart.

So good. I love the way SA Cosby writes, POETRY over the darkest, grimiest situations imaginable. Good people doing bad things, bad people doing worse things.
This might be my favorite of his.

FMC thinks she is doing banter, but come across as rude. At 50% into the book it is explained why she keeps everyone at arms length &It gave perfect insight to her mind but was a long time to wait after fatphobia &spitting food
🌶️🌶️🌶️but 🌶️doesn‘t overwhelm the book, although 1 parts is def physically impossible (even if 1 person shapeshifts, even if *it* rotates)but there‘s not much time spent on worldbuilding, weird stuff just kept happening

The MC of the book has DID (dissociative identity disorder) & 1 of the “headmates” has taken a position as caretaker at a castle isolated on an island, another headmate, after a long period of dormancy has to deal with this
Given the mental health condition it‘s tough to find a reliable narrator (multiple POVs)&Much of the mystery plays out inside the MC‘s mind (but there‘s plenty of weird stuff at the castle).
I have never read anything like it.

I almost DNF‘d because it was very very slow early in, but ultimately ended up enjoying it.

Combining 2 timelines, Anita‘s inspiration & toxic marriage & Raquel‘s experience as an art student at Brown add commentary on who gets to leave a legacy, the systems of oppression continue to fuel themselves while claiming the doors are open &men who use women as accessories to validate themselves.

The ending wraps up a bit too quickly. But it was good.

This was pretty nuts.
At first I had difficulty keeping track of the POVs &their roles. &it‘s at times ridiculous/unbelievable but kind of believable with how AI is taking over the world.
But ultimately I really liked it.
The survivalists, the “good billionaire” fallacy, the plot twists.
How many people would you have to delete to save the world?
-note: the full cast recording of the audio was super well done.

It‘s still a pick but perhaps the weakest of the series. Things from the end of Storm of Swords don‘t get addressed until significantly into this one (but when it comes back around WOW) I missed some of our regular POVs &while the Greyjoy/Martell POVs added to the 7 Kingdoms, it seemed like a side quest, could have explained &wrapped up their impact without it.

Sargar114 I think I liked this one better upon my first read, I don‘t think the reread did it any favors. I feel as though a lot of it could have been told through our other perspectives. On to the next one! 2w

The beginning 1/3 of the book was very compelling & described exactly what Wilkerson dubbed the American Caste system &just how extreme it is. There were parts I found redundant, or random, & occasionally contradictory.
A good read to check your biases, understand why there‘s still such a divide here, &/or further radicalize you.

Pickpick

Soft pick due to the slow set up (but as the 1st book in a planned series with worldbuilding & magic systems to account for, it‘s understandable) but eventually everything started rolling & it‘s very unique & sexy. Could have been a bit more immersive, but I liked the characters & premise of the Battle between Heaven & Hell (&the other pantheons).

Mehso-so

Eh. As a fan of slasher flicks, I figured this would be up my alley dispute some less than glowing reviews. It wasn‘t bad, but I have issues with the way the story was told. The gang doesn‘t really do anything productive in the investigation. The build up is spent on this-awful-thing-the-MC-did ..which wasn‘t impactful to the main story in the end.

Margaery begs Cersei to help with the Ironmen at Shield Islands. Cersei blames Willas &convinces the others that this is a diversion by Stannis. Despite the threat to Highgarden, Cersei will not provide ships until the siege at Dragonstone is won. Loras says he can take Dragonstone if given command
Balman fails to kill Bronn
She goes to bed with Lady Merryweather, claiming her rights as Robert had done to Cersei, but doesn‘t take the same pleasure

majkia She's become a monster. 1mo
5feet.of.fury @majkia I was trying to feel for her when she recounted Robert‘s abusive behavior, but then she wanted to turn around & hurt Taena… sickening. 1mo

Roary47 @majkia agreed. I read Cersei as the title of the chapter and I wonder what sort of crazy am I going to witness in this chapter. 1mo
BethM @majkia agreed. I disliked her in the show, but I hate her in the book. She‘s so much more mentally unstable here. 1mo
majkia @BethM Yes. In the series she always seemed to have it together. She was cold and used people, and I disliked her intensely. But here she's far worse. 1mo

They are at the Quiet Isle just outside Saltpans. Outlaws recently attacked, but they say it was not the Hound who committed the atrocities
The Elder Brother reveals it was not Sansa who was with the Hound but Arya. He can‘t say for sure if she survived. He found The Hound at the Trident & watched him die.
The Elder Brother asks her to give up her quest & go to her family, thinks of her siblings who have passed, but she can‘t give up her quest.

5feet.of.fury “Alysanne & Arianne dies still in the cradle” didn‘t we just see them in Dorne?! Brienne is a secret sibling?! 1mo
Doppoetry Seems it's just a case of similar names, so no she is not a secret Dornish lady, though that would have been an interesting plot twist. 1mo

5feet.of.fury @Doppoetry there are so many repeating names 😩 1mo
5feet.of.fury @Doppoetry I really thought I was on to something & Doran had taken her siblings. But we don‘t need any more weird plot threads so I guess it‘s for the best 1mo
Doppoetry @5feet.of.fury It's true, the story is already very convoluted, we don't need more confusion! 1mo
BethM Brienne‘s story remains so slow 1mo
5feet.of.fury @BethM I was talking to my friend who had previously read the books about this today & she swears Brienne is going to do ✨something✨ (edited) 1mo

They reach Darry which Lancel has claimed.however they are not immediately greeted by Kevan (who left) or Lancel (who is praying). There are many Freys there &he hears of the hanging & trap set by the outlaws.
Rumors of what the Hound did at Saltpans abounds, but Jaime doesn‘t believe it
The sparrows attempt to stop him from entering the sept, but Lancel welcomes him. Having found his faith, he confesses poisoning Robert…. & laying with Cersei.

5feet.of.fury “It‘s not treason unless you finish inside.” 😂😂🤣🤣🤣 these fn Lannisters 1mo

5feet.of.fury Also just realized the schedule is off starting yesterday 🙃 I skipped from Jaime 111 to Jaime 5? Or something idk I‘ll have to update it so we have an end date for this book 1mo
Roary47 Cersei is gross. Hopefully, Jaime can at least move on from her if nothing else. 1mo
BethM Anyone else want to punch Lancel? Lol 1mo
BethM @Roary47 I sure hope so! 1mo

Victarion leads battle at the Shields, but resents Euron-as king- will get the credit.
They won, but made an enemy of Highgarden.Euron wants to sell the defeated as slaves &some object. He thinks Euron‘s hold on the Seastone Chair may be weak
Euron calls for Victarion &says he once threw a dragon egg into the sea. He has another mission for Victarion. “When the kraken weds the dragon, let all the world beware.” But Victarion wants her for himself

Bklover I had a little trouble with this chapter. Listened to the audio for this one and kept wandering off in my head. 1mo
5feet.of.fury @Bklover it started off with wayyyy too many new faces &places, seemed like so much fluff to get to the point in the last 2 pages. I‘ll be glad to get back to shorter chapters with the next book. 1mo

Roary47 I agree with all the characters @5feet.of.fury I‘m struggling and just want our other people back 😭 @Bklover This is going to be the lowest stars for me at this rate. 1mo
BethM @5feet.of.fury @Bklover @Roary47 I concur! Such long chapters for not a lot of mileage. I just kept thinking yeah try capturing her, see how that goes. Men 🙄 1mo
