review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-11-07 03:25
Review: It
It: A Novel - Stephen King

So it only took me forever, but not because the book was bad (obviously).  I'm just a slacker.

 

I don't know what to say about it other than it is another gem from the master, Stephen King.  It was well written and had the right amount of creepiness, horror and humor.

 

There are some triggering scenes with animal abuse that were discomforting to me.

 

And am I the only one who felt bad for It in the end?  I think it was the mom in me feeling a little softhearted as It begged for it's life and for the life of it's progeny.  But, of course, I know It couldn't be left to survive, nor could it's young.  But for a brief moment, I felt It's pain; the need to save itself and it's children.

 

All in all, it was quite the roller-coaster ride.

Amazon credit
All Systems Red - Martha Wells
Wonder Woman: The Official Movie Novelization - Nancy Holder
Gotham: Dawn of Darkness - Jason Starr
Alien: Out of the Shadows - Tim Lebbon
MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #18 Cover A Release Date 8/23/17 - Sonic Boom Studios Fach / Khromov GbR Alex Khromov,Sonic Boom Studios Fach / Khromov GbR Alex Khromov

All Systems Red and Gotham: Dawn of Darkness were full price, but the Wonder Woman novelization was one dollar, the Alien book was two - and has some Ash, and I love this author - and Power Rangers 18 was two dollars, as BOOM! comics are half off after they're out in the world for a month. 

 

For $16 and change, that was a good haul.

Blog Interview with Hollywood Specialist Bodyguard Kris Herzog

 Bodyguard Kris Herzog with Jessica Alba

 

The sick things people sent to movie stars in the mail, in addition to assassination attempts. Scary.

 

The interview coincides with my novel, Gun Kiss, which features a specialist protection agency guarding a movie star.

 

These guys do more than the average bodyguard. The stuff these guys do is close to how I had described in Gun Kiss. Kris had also protected some of the U.S. presidents, children of Saudi royalty, foreign dignitaries and top businessmen.

 

To join The Bodyguard Group of Beverly Hills, you must be a specialist police officer, ex-Navy Seal or other elite units.

The Bad Seed
The Bad Seed: A Vintage Movie Classic - William March

I remember watching that Macaulay Culkin movie a few years ago, "The Good Son" and realize that it was a homage to "The Bad Seed." I remember being freaked out at how Culkin acted in that movie. I have to say that Rhoda in "The Bad Seed" would have wiped out that character without breaking a sweat.

 

"The Bad Seed" is about a mother (Christine) at home waiting for her husband and realizing that her daughter (Rhoda) is not like the other boys and girls. When Christine starts to have suspicions about Rhoda's involvement in an accident that left a classmate of her's dead, more secrets that Christine has tried to forget come out. 

 

Christine's increasing horror at who her daughter really is was interesting to read. I just think with her going back and forth to the true crime writer to keep getting his opinions about a hypothetical which we readers realize is not a hypothetical was boring. 

 

And I had to roll my eyes about Christine's background reveal. I liked it better when we just had a story about the world's scariest little girl ever. 

 

Rhoda is scary as anything though. We get to hear about things she has done and we get to actually witness something she does do. 

 

I did enjoy this book, but don't think this is something I would read repeatedly in the future. I just think the main problem is that there was a lot of fluff to me in the middle that could have been cut back.
