Hello #Littens and Happy 2020 to y'all!💕

I happily discovered last night that whatever weirdness occurred with my iOS 13 update is gone! After updating to 13 some bizarre sensitivity to links made scrolling through Litsy a pain-in-the-ass; hence my absence 😖

I've missed you guys and am happy things seem working again! ☺️

CarolynM Nice to see you back 👋 2y
C.Perone @CarolynM Thank you☺️ It's really good to be back 👋 2y
Prairiegirl_reading Wasn‘t that sooooo annoying!!?? All better now though. 😄 2y

Stockpole is just not a favored author of mine; and it's almost painful to read his Star Wars books. He's not a bad author at all - the story lines are good, the plot moves well, the characters are well drawn; but his excruciating detail of battle, squad movements during battle, the manner in which the x-wing was flown 😩😩😩😩

Love this cover 😍

The story . . . eh, not so much. The characters were written well, but the story was just boring; except for the flood scenes. Three times I almost gave up, but liked the characters too much to leave them. However, I skipped 80 pages toward the end and just skimmed the last few pages for a sum up on the characters.

Top three stories, in order: Late Returns, You Are Released, and Throttle. By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain gets honorable mention.

Faun and The Devil on the Staircase were DNFs; Thumbprint and Twittering from the Circus of the Dead I didn't like. In the Tall Grass was ok, a bit unsatisfying.

Everything else, including the intro and notes, were good, solid reads.

Quite disappointing and almost didn't bother with last 20 pages.

I should've known given the hype of this book that it wasn't going to be that good 💁‍♀️

Finished this in the wee hours this AM.

Eh, it was alright; though, I gotta say, the framework of the story was quite weak.

C.Perone @Tiffiney Yes; it was like a roller coaster ride...it grabbed my interest, then lost it, etc. It was annoying to have it end with lost interest 😕 2y

Started reading this until I can get to b&n on Wednesday for Stephen King's new book. I like Palahniuk, but I'm not a fan of short stories; hence why it's been on my #TBR pile for 3+ years. Thought it'd be a good filler read, but, yeahhhhh it's not shaping up to be 😐

Reggie If I remember correctly the first story is about the comedian‘s kid and that one made me stop. Not because it was bad but it was just hurtful. 2y
C.Perone @Reggie Yes, and you were smart to stop. That story is only decent read so far. 2y

This actually wasn't a bad read; but it didn't live up to the promised story described on the flap.

The story itself described a very intelligent tinkerer, but not a scientist. And though her invention was brilliant I can see many reasons why the navy didn't fall over themselves trying to utilize it at the time that had nothing to do with the sex of the inventor. But that's the sole reason given🤷‍♀️
