This cookbook is supposed to help people who are having to change their eating habits. While I would probably follow this if I was alone, it would not work in this family or house. Just like other diets, I have tried, having to cook 2 or 3 meals for every meal would make it an impossible task and would not be followed. If you do have to follow this diet, I would recommend the book.
October was a crazy month here at the Horror Corner!
The most important, (and beautiful thing), was that my lovely niece married her best friend of 20+ years. The ceremony was wonderful and the reception a lot of fun!
Then, two weeks after that was the Merrimack Valley Halloween Book Festival!
You can find my post about that HERE.
Here's a photo of myself with Rio Youers. Isn't he the cutest? He's also extremely gracious and very funny.
All of this is why I only read 10 books this month!

Truth be told, this book was a bit jumbled at first. We jump right into Ben's life and there's very little explanation. I would have preferred a little introduction but we do get a bit of history and context as the book progresses. Needless to say, there is some graphic violence discussed, so be wary of that.
By the middle of the book I was really enjoying it. I did figure out one of the plot twists pretty early on, but that didn't particularly deter from the story. There was, in my humble opinion, a bit too much discussion of the various settings Ben encounters. While I do enjoy knowing the world the characters are experiencing (especially since I've never been there), there was just a lot of unnecessary inclusions that made the story drag a bit at times.
However, I really enjoyed Ben as a character and the ending was an interesting outcome. Ben is a vigilante and lives by his own set of rules, which aren't clear at the beginning of the story. I found myself waiting to see what his next move might be, and I was consistently surprised. I'm definitely interested to read his next adventure.
