I'm starting to try to scrape together a coherent review of The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku, so I figured I'd get in the mood by checking out my favorite Vocaloid tuner's most recent work. Unfortunately, it looks like she's been pretty inactive in the past year or so (*sob*), but she did upload this Hatsune Miku V4 English cover of "Tell Your World" almost a year ago. Like she says in the description, it's not too bad considering that Miku's voice provider doesn't even speak English. But yeah, the subtitles definitely help.

Okay, so this is a game and not book-related, but I just finished it and the story/characters were fascinating in a trainwreck kind of way. Three or four generations of family members, all marching steadily to their doom. Plus alchemy, a raven-headed man, and an immortal dog.

 

I'm tempted to try the Cube Escape games now, but I have chores I really need to do, and The Edge of the Abyss to finish reading.

Nil on Fire (Nil Series Book 3) - Lynne Matson

 

 

 

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

SAVED (Charlie's Song) from LOST w Lyrics The Bangkok Five  --Yeah, that Charlie from the TV show Lost…because I loved that show and this book brings back my memories of loving that show.  Honestly, the mystery, the existential feelings it evokes, remind me so much of that show.♫

 

Although, I was more obsessed with Jack...

My Thoughts

 

This book took almost two weeks for me to finish, which wasn't entirely the books fault, it was mostly RL.  That being said, while I was reading this, I was constantly distracted, and it was mostly thoughts of life and existence and the ending of it.  Freaky thoughts that kind of spooked me, and it's essentially what made reading this such an arduous undertaking for me.

 

Overall, this is a fitting end to this series, despite my not liking the main character, Skye, as much as I did in the second book…she's was just...annoying, smackably so.  It's told from three POV's, which includes Skye, Rives and Nil…yeah the island has a voice.  At first I was annoyed by that, but eventually it makes sense why the Author did it this way.  There's a lot of new characters introduced in this book, and it's kind of hard to keep them all straight at first.  Although, I did especially like Molly and Davey...oh yeah, and Hafthor too.
