Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
The Dark Tower, Volume 3: Treachery - Peter David,Stephen King,Richard Ianove,Jae Lee,Robin Furth

I just decided to read through the whole volume. This one shows the second incident that shaped Roland. The death of his mother. This volume didn't feel as grand as the other volumes though. Probably just 3 stars from me.

Chapter three moves the story a little. Roland's mother is still a mess. You can feel the beginning of the end for some of these characters.

Chapter two was a dud. And we have a character introduced that I don't recall from the books, Aileen. She wants to be a Gunslinger. She changes the Gunslinger motto and it felt...off. Anyway this chapter read as filler.

Onto chapter two. Setting the stage for Roland to become even more obsessed with the grapefruit glass. We get to see Gunslingers go out to hunt down Farsons's men. And Roland is being visited by the Crimson King.

Books Review - Just Three Dates by David Burnett
Just Three Dates - David Burnett

Our Beck Valley Books Review - 'Just Three Dates is a simple, gentle, realistic story. David Burnett, Author​'s wonderful writing style has you there in the moment.'....

 

Both Karen and Mark find themselves at a time of life where they would have loved to be settled down with a family, yet through past heartbreaks they both remain single to the annoyance of their parents or should I say mothers! So what does a mother do when their child can't move forward into a relationship after so long, they feel the need to press the fast forward button and play the blind date host of course!

 

After being hammered by his mother so many times of the need to find a wife, Mark gives in to her crazy blind date request with her friends daughter Karen, with the promise that they just have to have three dates, and then the whole idea will be forgotten about. Poor Karen is also put into the same predicament and reluctantly agrees. They set out, under duress, to meet for their three dates, but the path of true love never runs smoothly so how will it work out?

 

David's wonderful writing style has you there in the moment, along with Karen and Mark, it feels like you are reading a true story and the characters are your friends, I even felt frustrated with Mark at times for his stubborn ways just like you would in reality. You get to relive the new relationship emotions, the awkwardness, the stress and anticipation, getting to know each other, searching for clues within each other and perhaps reading the wrong signals. Yet for Karen and Mark they have the added pressure of knowing their mothers expect wedding bells to chime!

 

I really enjoyed their story and it did leave me thinking about the idea of an agreed marriage against the loneliness of being on your own, the pros and the cons, quite thought provoking. Which is why I love this author so much, a simple, gentle, realistic story that flows in to the readers mind and has you thinking long after you have read the book.
