Great continuation
Deadpool (2018-) #2 - Skottie Young,Nic Klein

I love this series so far.   Deadpool has a weapon that can stop a Celestial on Earth.  But he'll only help if the Avengers hire him, which they won't. 

 

The real question is why are they cool with him not remembering everything after he literally made them barf all over NYC. 

 

Funny, lighter than the last series, and I'm enjoying this new direction!

Great start to this series
Deadpool (2018-) #1 - Skottie Young,Nic Klein,Scott Hepburn

This takes advantage of the movies and pairs up Deadpool with Negasonic Teenage Warhead.   She manages his clients, and he takes care of business.   It works out well, although him calling everything Negasonic Teenage blankety-blank is going to get old soon.   Oh, Primus, I hope she wails on him for that instead of playing on her phone...

 

Deadpool has contracts with loopholes.   Like if you don't say that someone's a mutant, god, or Inhuman, you get fined.   If you don't pay the fine, he takes your bike.   Because he's Deadpool and he doesn't care. 

 

Also, he's mind wiped himself to protect everyone he loves, so he's back to being the annoying, mouthy ass that he was when I first fell for his character.  Or in other words: this should be fun.   There are different kinds of Deadpool fun and this is going to be the weirdest, goriest, grossest kind along with more of his brand of humor.   It won't be the serious ones that made me think as much as Ellie's storylines tended to, but that's okay.  If things got too static, I started getting bored.   

 

So far this looks like a great reboot.   Here's to hoping it doesn't get cancelled and rebooted in a year, LOL.   No, seriously, Marvel, quit doing that...

You'll Grow Out of It
You'll Grow Out of It - Jessi Klein

 

 

A collection of humorous autobiographical essays from Jessi Klein, head writer for The Amy Schumer Show.  I had not heard of Jessi Klein before stumbling upon this audio book, and I enjoyed her voice (both authorial and audio-narrative).  I frequently laughed out loud like a crazy person.  I was less fond of the direction she took with her "Get the Epidural" essay, because I felt it ended up being a little bit overly bombastic in its "GET THE EPIDURAL" refrain.  I agree that no one should be shamed for wanting one, but it felt as though she went too far in the opposite direction.  Like you'd have to be stupid to even consider not getting one.  Personally, I had planned to try labor and delivery without one, while keeping it as an option if I felt the need.  Ultimately, my entire birth plan went out the window, as I ended up with a c-section due to fetal distress.  Klein makes a very brief disclaimer along the lines of, "If you really want to give birth without an epidural, go for it," but that is pretty well drowned out by the frequent shout of "GET THE EPIDURAL!" 

 

As Klein explains in the essays, she was single and dating when she began composing them, and got engaged, married, and pregnant, and became a new mom during the course of completing them.  "I'm a slow writer!"  I would definitely seek out a stand-up special by Jessi Klein, should one become available (are you listening, Netflix?).

For January 2018, some really good books and some disappointed ones. 

 

5 stars read

 

The Thirst - Jo Nesbø,Neil Smith The Thirst - Jo Nesbø,Neil Smith  

 

Harry is now teaching in police college and has been happily married for 3 years. 

 

Now a new killer is out and it is hard to catch. The chief of police now threatened Harry to get him back to the force to solve the case. 

 

The plots is interesting when the killer is clever and do not care about who he kills but only how he kills. That's make this killer hard to catch or predict.

 

So Harry is going after all the leads. And then tried to out the killer but setting a monkey trap. 

 

Really good story. Good writing and good translation. 

 

The Escape - David Baldacci  The Escape - David Baldacci  

 

A John Puller story about his brother Robert Puller escape from prison.

 

Robert was jailed for treason. A charge that John never really believed but wasn't sure about his innocence either. 

 

John was order to go after his brother. But in the meantime, find out more evidence that his brother is framed. 

 

His love and trust of his brother and the loyalty to his job is in direct conflict. And there is a possibility that if Robert resists arrest, he would let Robert kill him to get away. 

 

Strange. But like the innocent and stubbornness of John Puller. 

 

Of course, Robert is the clever one, and tried to find out more about who wants to kill him during his escape time. 

 

And who betrayed Robert. Must be someone high up. 

 

More dead bodies and a lot of attempt to kill John later, they solved the case. 

 

Happy endings. Good story. Lot of plot driven page turning. 

 

A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon  A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon  Clark the Shark - Bruce Hale  Clark the Shark - Bruce Hale  

 

Two good children books. 

 

A bad case of stripes is being different and being who you are. 

 

Clark the Shark is being big and having behaviors that bother other children. Shark didn't mean to and he changed his behavior after he is made aware of it. 

 

4.5 stars read

 

The Escape - David Baldacci  The Escape - David Baldacci 

 

An Amos Decker story about a ex-football player Melvin Mars in dead row. 

 

He was almost executed. 

 

Another person confused to the crime he was accused of. Then he was free from jail.

 

Then the twist came. The confession was a lie. He was paid to confess to this crime. 

 

More players in the background. A bit strange of their intention. 

 

Amos Decker got help from Melvin to solve this case. With a lot of conspiracy theory thrown into it. 

 

A free man now is free. Good ending.  

 

 

 

The Fix - David Baldacci  The Fix - David Baldacci  

 

A woman is murdered in from of the FBI headquater. 

 

Amos Decker is trying to find who kill the woman and why.

 

It is a mystery. And involved in old spies and spy habit for spying.

 

The only down side is it is a bit to far out. 

 

Amos Decker is also a new apartment, from Mars who he helped saved in his last book.

 

A story about how to catch old spy and found out their identity. 

 

The clue is a bit strange, but still interesting. 

 

Solid read. 

 

4 stars read 

 

Jack Reacher story about John got dumped and reacted strangely. 

 

So Jack got dumped. He drifted. Got to a pawn shop. Saw a West Point ring, woman size and wanted to find the owner.

 

The finding of this woman led him from the pawn shop to a criminal group that sell stolen items to a local drug distribution gang.

 

In the meantime, a PI was hired and looking for the same woman.

 

A lot of twists and turns later. 

 

He found her. But she is in another kind of trouble. Jack wants to help. 

 

Of course he did. A solid read overall. 

 

3 stars read 

 

No Is Not Enough - Naomi Klein  No Is Not Enough - Naomi Klein  

 

This is really disappointing. 

 

She is repeating herself on what she had written in Shock Doctrine. 

 

The first two third of the book is like that with some updates.

 

The later one third of the book is about hope. But it failed to raise any hope. 

 

She has to know that the Trump supporters are not going to read her book or understand what is trying to say. With that large population of ignorant people that are known as Trump supporters in US. There is very little hope. 

 

Therefore, a 3 stars read. There is not enough good and solid information in this book to make it good. 

 

Summary 

 

Not a bad month for reading. A lot of solid read. Slightly off from the plan as the new books came up. 

 

I like plot driven story. Airport read when one is not at an airport. David Baldacci is a good writer for that. 

 

Looking forward to more read in February.
