A slight change of plan as I decided to re-read It by Stephen King, this will be for the 80's horror square.I've just seen the movie which was great fun, I highly recommend it.

 

 

 

 

 

Pic Monkey is still playing up on Firefox, so I had to switch to IE where it is behaving as it should.

 

I leave you with lovely Pennywise the Clown.

It's a slow start for me and I haven't finished one book yet.

 

 

I'm very jealous of all those that have already posted finishing several, I need to kick my reading up a gear.

 I'm not sure why but I'm having huge problems with Pic Monkey, it won't let me edit and keeps freezing. I've had to download the IOS app, use the stickers from there, save to my photos, add it to BL, save the draft and then open it up again on my PC. Aaarrrgghhh. Anyone else having any issues?

Final Girls by Mira Grant
Final Girls - Mira Grant

A new immersive VR technology is being used to help people overcome their psychological hangups by giving them traumatic experiences (e.g. bring estranged sisters closer together by making them live through nightmarish scenarios) and a journalist is doing a write-up of Dr. Webb and her setup. The journalist decides to experience it for herself and something goes wrong, naturally. This novella focused far too much on schoolgirl experiences for my taste and the programming references didn't ring true for the supposed time period. So it was ok, but I probably would have dropped it if it weren't so short.

 

I read this because I'm on the boolikes-opoly Just Visiting Jail square and I needed to read at least 100 pages. The novella is 112 pages and I'm donating them to the Jail Library.

This is an enjoyable and somewhat creepy psychological novella with an interesting idea, and twisted ended.  I can't really say more than what the blurb provides without giving away the plot. 

 

From the blurb:  "Dr. Jennifer Webb has invented proprietary virtual reality technology that purports to heal psychological wounds by running clients through scenarios straight out of horror movies and nightmares. In a carefully controlled environment, with a medical cocktail running through their veins, sisters might develop a bond they’ve been missing their whole lives—while running from the bogeyman through a simulated forest. But…can real change come so easily?

Esther Hoffman doubts it. Esther has spent her entire journalism career debunking pseudoscience, after phony regression therapy ruined her father’s life. She’s determined to unearth the truth about Dr. Webb’s budding company. Dr. Webb’s willing to let her, of course, for reasons of her own. What better advertisement could she get than that of a convinced skeptic? But Esther’s not the only one curious about how this technology works. Enter real-world threats just as frightening as those created in the lab. Dr. Webb and Esther are at odds, but they may also be each other’s only hope of survival."
