Sonnet 42: "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams
The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy: A Trilogy in Five Parts - Douglas Adams


The way I (probably mistakenly) see it, the answer 42 represents a view of cheery perfection. It's almost as though it is trying to be as divisible as possible simply to be helpful. Even its name is annoyingly perky. It is the number which represents what the established order (notably religion) has told us represents the universe. It is the number of order, sense and reason. Neither 6 nor 9 nor 54 are particularly welcoming numbers. Douglas Adams seems to like this view of the world. Just like Sirius Cybernetics, we're sold the idea of something being perfect and flawless whereas we all know (even if we are reluctant to truly accept it) that the reality does not match it.

Full of HOTNESS
Wolf Tales 12: Exposed Kindle Edition - Kate Douglas

Wolf Tales 12 concludes the erotic journey of the Chanku. In this final installment, the Chanku must all gather together in Montana after they have been exposed.

If you like the other books in the series, then you’ll love this story. It brings back some known characters and the story contains plenty of hot scenes while still maintaining a decent storyline. I recommend.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

The Green Lama by Adam Lance Garcia
The Green Lama: Scions - Adam Lance Garcia,Douglas Klauba

This story was way more fun than I expected. I do enjoy pulp fiction but I usually have to be in a mood for it as so much of the genre can be campy and sexist. Not this one! I was happy to see so many female characters in the book – and they get stuff done too! They don’t just look pretty while being rescued.

Set in New York, there’s a variety of characters for the Big Bad Evil to infect and/or kill. The creeptastic aspects lead back to a ship that crashed into Liberty Island. It’s something out of a horror movie and it has the police baffled. But never fear! The Green Lama knows what this evil is, much to his sadness.

For such a short story, it’s a pretty big cast of characters. I did have a little trouble keeping them all separate. However, they are all interesting. There’s Jean Farell, who is a good shot and doesn’t shy away from rescuing men knocked unconscious. Frankie, who is French Black American, has a soft spot for kids that need rescuing.

Jethro Durmont, the hero of this tale, is a bit standard. He’s a millionaire white guy who lost his parents under horrible circumstances, and ran off to Asia to learn some mystical self-defense arts. Sound familiar, no? Batman, Iron Fist, The Arrow, etc. He does have at least one unique aspect – he needs his special radioactive salts on a regular basis to maintain his special powers. I hope he labels those appropriately so the guests don’t use them to flavor their soup!

Betty Dale, a newsreporter, has me wondering what will happen in the next book. She knows the Green Lama’s secrets but he also knows who she is. Then there’s poor Lt. Caraway. He made me laugh a few times but things didn’t go well for him in this story. Overall, it was a fun story. 4.5/5 stars

The Narration: Jiraiya Addams puts on a great performance. He has unique voices for all the characters and his female characters sound feminine. He went all out voicing the Evil, which was multi-layered voices for individual characters affected by it. Chilling! There were no technical issues with the recording. 5/5 stars

Even more grim than the previous book
We Were Kings - Douglas Graham Purdy,Thomas O'Malley

I didn't it was possible, but this installment of The Boston Saga was even more downbeat and depressing than the last one.

 

Booze, drugs, guns, mobsters, and now the IRA have got involved. Just another day in 1950's Boston.

Reading progress update: I've read 230 out of 384 pages.
We Were Kings - Douglas Graham Purdy,Thomas O'Malley

Boston August 1954 - Temperatures in the high 90's and it's so hot, your clothes stick to your skin. Bad-tempered drivers yelling at people. Red Sox put up a dismal display against the Yankees at Fenway Park.

 

Boston August 2018 - Temperatures in the high 90's and it's so hot, your clothes stick to your skin. Bad-tempered drivers yelling at people. Red Sox put up a dismal display against sweep the Yankees at Fenway Park.

 

I have to smile while I'm in Boston during a heatwave, and reading a book set in Boston during a heatwave, but unlike the book's protagonists, at least my A/C is working, and as an added bonus, I'm not being shot at or beaten up by mobsters.
