The Deep by Nick Cutter
The Deep - Nick Cutter

This book started out ok, but then it quickly descended into a madness of its own. It went on for far too long and I just wanted it to end.
Not a fan of this one, sorry.

THE SHARING KNIFE PASSAGE by LOIS McMASTER BUJOLD
Passage - Lois McMaster Bujold

Audiobook

I keep forgetting how young Fawn is. I like how the Lakewalkers aren't shown as completely good and the farmers mostly bad. Sad middle imagining what happened to the father and the rest of the crew. Enjoyable book/series. I'm planning on reading more of the series.

SCARDOWN by ELIZABETH BEAR
Scardown - Elizabeth Bear

I'll start with complaints. 
1. If your book is written in English, if you use another language in same book make sure you have the English translation. I've seen this done before in many book I've read. It's irritating if you don't have access to the internet to translate sometimes whole paragraphs of dialogue.
2. When the POV changes, maybe list in the paragraph title whose POV it is or maybe "Casey thought. . ." so we have an idea who is talking. One chapter took me over 1-1/2 pages to figure out whose POV it was.

I loved the ending. The one man, two women (not lesbian) thing - I just couldn't imagine it working so smoothly. Overall, a good book/series.

SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES by RAY BRADBURY
Something Wicked This Way Comes - Ray Bradbury

Re-read by Audiobook. I read this when I was in high school - I think around 1978 - and thought it was such a scary, fantastic story. If there would have been goth in the 70's, I would have been one. Everything scary, occult, horrific I read. Just a bundle of sunshine!

This reading I liked it (thank goodness) but not as much as I did when I was a teenager. The narration included a part about how Ray Bradbury came up with the idea for the story which was interesting. The narration was good but I didn't remember Will being so whiny.

THE PILOT'S WIFE by ANITA SHREVE
The Pilot's Wife - Anita Shreve

Audiobook

I wish Melanie Griffith would have narrated other books because she does a fantastic job. Her voice is a little gritty and is just wonderful to listen to.

The story itself I really enjoyed but mentions of the SPOILER!! IRA - Irish Republican Army  really date it. I was thinking, oh year, I remember there were problems with them in the 1990s. I just enjoyed the whole book front to back. 5 stars.
