Early fall always makes me think of this book. It's one of my favorites to re-read. Anyone else have favorite books for each season? 🍁🍂🍁

An epic adventure of mythic proportions. It was exactly what I wanted it to be when I picked it up. I highly recommend to anyone who likes mythology or quest stories. The worlds were well fleshed out and vivid.

Snuggling in for a bit before I have to cook dinner. So far I am finding this book only mediocre - hopping it picks up. Has anyone else read it?

EloisaJames Yup. It is what it is--kind of a long Star Trek episode. But I enjoyed it all the same. In a mild way 3y

5 stars on Goodreads. Once I started this book I couldn't put it down. There where very few parts that did not elicit a strong reaction; horror, revulsion, fear and tenderness. It felt so unique that I was never guessing what would come next. Instead I was just swept along to the conclusion. I think it might take me awhile to recover from that ending.

MissDodoBrooks @EloisaJames, It always makes my day when I see you 'like' or respond to my posts. I have been a huge fan of you and your books for years. 💗 3y

In honor of Halloween I want to share one of my best loved books. The Terror has two horrific elements, the sub zero cold and the monster stalking the crew. Throughout the entire story I couldn't decide which was a worse fate, freezing to death while starving or being eaten alive.

The City of Mirrors | Justin Cronin

"Maybe that was what getting older taught you, when you looked in the mirror and saw the passage of time in your face, when you looked at your sleeping daughter and saw the girl you once were and would never be again. The world was real and you were in it, a brief part but still a part, and if you were lucky, and maybe even if you weren't the things you'd done for love would be remembered."

readswellwithothers I'm 3/4 of the way through this and I'm completely beside myself because everything is so fast-paced and exciting in the story right now and I'm dying to read it, but then I'll finish the book and then my time with these people will be OVER...I'm not ready to say goodbye! 3y
TrishB It's a fab book 😀 3y
MissDodoBrooks @readswellwithothers , I'm just starting but I agree, its going to be hard to leave these characters behind. And only a handful of pages in but so much has happened! 3y

I was dissapointed with this book. I did not like the writing style, I did not connect with any of the characters and I put most of the pieces together on my own.
