Sehr spannend, aber aus dem Anfang und Ende hätte man mehr machen können
Mind Games - Teri Terry,Petra Knese Mind Games - Teri Terry,Petra Knese

Luna ist in der Welt, wo alles nur noch online zählt, eine Verweigerin und damit ziemlich alleine. Ihre Freunde, ihre Familie, ... einfach alle ... sind nahezu ständig online und von den Möglichkeiten begeistert. Als Luna auf Gecko stößt, kommt auch sie der virtuellen Welt immer näher und als sie schließlich zu dieser Insel soll, folgt ein Problem dem nächsten. Und vor allem viele Fragen.

 

Da ich die Gelöscht Reihe der Autorin gelesen und geliebt habe, war für mich klar, dass ich dieses Buch auch lesen muss. Vom Schreibstil und der Erzählweise her ist Mind Games der Reihe sehr ähnlich, was mir sehr gut gefallen hat.

Bei der Geschichte selbst hatte ich allerdings einige Schwierigkeiten.

Zuerst hatte ich das Gefühl, dass alles nur so vor sich herplätschert und ich war nicht wirklich gefesselt, weswegen ich nur schleppend vorankam. Das ging ungefähr bis zur Hälfte so.

Erst, als Luna auf diese Insel soll, hat mich das Buch gepackt und da wurde es richtig, richtig gut. Immer wieder tauchten Fragen oder Ereignisse auf, die man unbedingt beantwortet haben wollte. Doch als man merkte, dass es aufgrund der Seitenanzahl langsam dem Ende zugeht, war ich etwas verwirrt. Und wie ich es ahnte, kam das Ende echt schlagartig. Da hätte man noch ein bisschen rausholen können.

So, wie das Ende war, hätte ich nicht damit gerechnet und muss gestehen, dass ich etwas unzufrieden bin. Warum möchte ich nicht verraten, denn dann würde ich wohl ordentlich spoilern.

 

Ich war hin und hergerissen, ob ich Mind Games 3 oder 4 Sterne geben soll. Aber da ich dann doch über einige Seiten hin so sehr gefesselt war und damit positiv überrascht wurde, möchte ich knappe 4 geben.

Außerdem gefällt mir das Cover sehr gut. Es ist mal was anderes und dieses Farbspiel ist einfach klasse und passend. Der Schreibstil hat mir bereits in den anderen Büchern gefallen und da die Autorin diesem treu geblieben ist, bin ich natürlich sehr zufrieden.

"Mind Games" by Stevie Turner

 

My Thoughts.....

 

After a 35 year marriage it looks like this wife has had enough of her husbands addiction to porn and want a divorce.  Now, to fully understand what has gone on with this husband you will just have to pick up "Mind Games" to see how this author presents it to the reader.  As I was reading this story I am not sure who I felt more sorrier for  Frances or Martin.  Definitely there was help that was needed by both but it didn't seem like anyone really wanted it.  Martin claim to have quite this addiction but soon we will find out from the read really was that true?  I could feel Frances need to not want to grow old along but to want to get back with Martin really had me shaking my head and saying REALLY!  As for Martin well I can will say is He Really Needed Some Help!  This story really left me thinking wow!  I will stop now and just stay you will have to pick this one up.  Will these two ever get back to that HEA that they seemed to have had at the beginning of their marriage?  Well, all I will say is wow...Martin certainly think he has it all figured out. But anyone is has an addiction to pornography will definitely need to help.  Now, since Martin tell Frances that he is though with porn and she seems to believe it!  What will happen if Frances finds out really what Martin is hiding and still is up to.  As the story stops here, hopefully Frances will still have her apartment still there for her to return to.  She just may need it!

Mind Games
Mind Games - Kiersten White Great girls-with-powers thriller. It feels significantly darker than first series Paranormalcy, with slightly more mature content and less cutesy characterization. Clever, tight and fast read with a complex sisters dynamic, endless angst, fluid morality and high-impact twists.

Mind Blowing Read
Mind Games - A Bad Boy Romance With A Twist (The Complete Trilogy) - Gabi Moore
Speaking directly to the audience in a book is generally not done. It's hard to pull off and keep the flow of the story, but Gabi Moore does it wonderfully in this trilogy. It felt like an intimate, one-on-one conversation with the character telling you their most private thoughts and secrets. While you may not agree with their actions, you can't stop "listening" to their story. 
The trilogy is the continuing story of Nora and Dean - their romance, their inner darkness, their kinks, and the lengths they'll go for each other. Each book adds a new twist and just when you think you know where the story is headed, guess again. 
Gabi Moore shows just how good she is in this trilogy and if I weren't already a fan, this one would convince me. It's deliciously dark, twisted, romantic, suspenseful, steamy, and captivating, all rolled into a mind-blowing tale that I couldn't put down. 
If you enjoy dark romantic suspense, I highly recommend this one.

Mind Games
Mind Games - Carolyn Crane

A hypochondriac as a heroine?!  Interesting, yes!  Not to mention different.  Justine was recruited to help "disillusion" people who are not-so-good.  When one is "disillusioned," their old self is broken down and when they rebuild, they are good.  

This was interesting and I'm glad I read it, but Justine got on my nerves. She was just annoying.  I liked the secondary characters.  Could have gone with less love interests; Cubby, Packard, and Otto (yes, there are 3- not all at once, try for 2 and you'd be correct). 

More on the world they inhabit would have been interesting.

 

Read for #9 Fantasyland, 371 pages

(one down, one to go before I can roll again!)
