The Keepsake
The Keepsake - Tess Gerritsen

The book starts in California, where the mother and daughter are living and hiding and hoping that they cannot be found. But one night, the mother discovers that her daughter left the windows in her room open and when she goes into check on her daughter, she finds a man standing over her daughter. During the struggle, the man is shot and killed. Then we go to modern day Massachusetts and Dr. Isles has been asked to come and watch the MRI of the mummy found in the basement of the museum. It is discovered that the mummy is not as old as they thought, this begins a search for a serial killer. 

 

I really enjoy the Rizzoli and Isles books, almost as much as the show. I found the show first and loved it, when it went off the air, I was watching the show through HULU, I saw the credits and saw that it was based on the books by Terri Gerritsen. I started borrowing here and there as they came available.

Kindle PAPERWHITE 3 ZNIKA z oferty Amazonu

 

Kindle Paperwhite 3 doczekał się w ostatnich dniach swojego następcy. W związku z tym, ten model był oferowany ze zniżką 30 EUR. Wygląda na to, że został jednak całkowicie wycofany. Obecnie przy wyborze tego modelu, widzimy w sklepie informację o braku dostępności wszystkich jego wersji (poza używanymi, które można do Polski kupić tylko przez pocztowego pośrednika). Taka sytuacja jest zarówno w niemieckim jak i innych europejskich oddziałach Amazonu.

 

Kindle Paperwhite 3 "obecnie niedostępny" (źródło: amazon.de)

 

W polskojęzycznej wersji sklepu pojawiła się dziś informacja:

Przedmiot jest obecnie niedostępny.

Nie mamy pewności, czy i kiedy ten przedmiot będzie ponownie dostępny w magazynie.”

 

Co teraz?

Jeśli jesteśmy więc teraz zainteresowani zakupem czytnika Kindle, pozostaje nam do wyboru Kindle 8 lub Kindle Paperwhite 4. Bieżąca oferta czytników tej marki zawiera także największy czytnik – Kindle Oasis 2. Wciąż nie jest on wysyłany do Polski. Zainteresowanym tym właśnie modelem polecam mój poradnik:Jak kupić Kindle Oasis 2 z dostawą do Polski.

 

Odnowione czytniki Kindle Oasis 2 są teraz dostępne taniej w ramach "Oferty dnia" (źródło: amazon.de)

 

Również nie zakupimy bezpośrednio do naszego kraju jednej z bieżących „Ofert dnia”. To odnowione i tzw. certyfikowane czytniki Kindle Oasis 2 (używane, doprowadzone do stanu fabrycznego). Można je kupić za 169,99 EUR (Kindle Oasis 2; 8 GB), 199,99 EUR (Kindle Oasis 2; 32 GB) oraz 259,99 EUR (Kindle Oasis 2; 32 GB z 3G). Podobnie, certyfikowane Kindle Paperwhite 3 są teraz po 89,99 EUR  (dostępne od 24 XI).

 

Podsumowanie

Obecna oferta dla polskich klientów jest trochę ograniczona. Miejmy nadzieję, że pojawi się w końcu możliwość bezpośredniego zakupu modelu Kindle Oasis 2. A czy w okresie przedświątecznym można liczyć na przeceny Kindle Paperwhite 4 lub powrót taniego Kindle Paperwhite 3? Trudno powiedzieć, ale też ciężko mi sobie wyobrazić okres przedświątecznych zakupów w Amazonie bez takiej oferty :)

Review: A List of Cages
A List of Cages - Robin Roe

I received a copy from Netgalley.

 

Not something I would probably have picked myself, I got one of those pre approval emails from Netgalley for this one. Since I never get approved for anything by Disney Hyperion I jumped at the chance to try something they were offering.

 

Unfortunately, I didn’t like this book much.

 

Trigger warnings for extreme abuse – both physical and mental.

 

I wasn’t sure what I was expecting, I did skim a few reviews on Goodreads before-hand so I was aware of the subject matter. The novel deals with two different boys who were once friends, despite a few years age difference. Quiet and reserved Julian the younger boy, and off the wall Adam. Adam is bright, friendly handsome and very chatty. He has ADHD. Something that’s referenced throughout the novel.

 

Julian lives with his uncle and suffering terrible abuse he keeps hidden. He’s miserable at school, not doing well in his classes, and doesn’t talk to anyone. Adam is popular with lots of friends, not the best student, maybe. He finds himself reconnecting with Julian when he gets a job as an assistant to the school psychologist and has to collect students to go to their appointments – Julian is one of those students.

 

We learn that they spent some time living together some years ago after the sudden and unexpected deaths of Julian’s parents. Adam and his mom became Julian’s foster family. Until Julian’s uncle showed up.

 

The uncle is a monster. I can’t even go into the level of manipulative torture he inflicts. It’s gut wrenching and horrible to read. I just wanted to hug Julian and keep him safe. He finds solace in Adam and his friends, who include him as one of their own. And they all get involved and help when things start going south and they discover what’s going on at Julian’s home and try and remove him from it. Uncle is slipping and becoming more off balance and cruel.

 

One thing I really liked was the sense of friendship and togetherness of Adam and Julian and how Adam’s friends helped Julian fit in and open up again.

 

There was just something about this book that wasn’t working for me. And I think it mostly had to do with the fact that every adult in this book was a villain of some sort. The teachers were mean, Julian’s teachers seemed to single him out, the psychologist wouldn’t listen, the police when they were involved were bullies who wouldn’t help. Adam’s mom was portrayed as the only competent adult. She had some odd ideas about how to handle Adam’s ADHD – herbal remedies instead of proper medication?!? I know nothing about ADHD so I shouldn’t judge but that doesn’t sound right.

 

The novel had its moments, but I didn’t really enjoy it all that much.  The writing had some potential, so I would definitely read this author again.

 

Thank you Netgalley and Disney Hyperion for the pre-approval email.
