review SPOILER ALERT! 2020-04-26 06:46
Review: World War Moo
World War Moo: An Apocalypse Cow Novel - Michael Logan

This was...wowzers.  It was a very good sequel.  I'm not sure how I feel about that ending, but I also do not think it could have ended any other way.

 

Note To Self: Write a better review after the readathon.

 

Updated Review (too many days later):

 

So this was a bit more serious that it's wackier predecessor.  We are reunited with the survivors of Apocalypse Cow and are met with some new characters.  Now the secret is out that the British Government created a biological weapon, and that they inadvertently let out of the laboratory.  The virus, which was engineered for animals, has now mutated and made the jump to humans.  There is an entire island of infected people trying to make the best of the life they've been cursed with.  Meanwhile the rest of the world believes they have the right to make the decision about whether or not these infected people have the right to live.  The fear is that the infection will eventually escape the island and infect the rest of the world.  Both positions are understandable and even defensible.

 

Our heroes are thrust back into the thick of things.  Geldolf learns that his mother was right to hide him from his grandfather, who is a greedy old man concerned only with profits and securing his legacy.  When the man learns that his daughter is still alive on the island, he tasks his grandson with hiring a team of mercenaries to infiltrate Scotland and rescue her.  Geldolf invites himself on the mission, Both to escape his grandfather and to see his mother again--not positive that the rescue mission will work.

 

There are a lot of shenanigans by both sides, threats and posturing and both secretly plan to destroy the other.  The problem is that each side is only seeing things from their own viewpoint.  In the end members from both sides seem to see reason, but will the powers that be agree?  It's a bit of an open ending, which...meh.  Based on how the plot played out, it makes perfect sense.  It would have been hard to create a truly good ending choosing either side.  However; there is also and opening for another sequel, without the absolute necessity for one.  I enjoyed this very much, but am still not certain how I feel about the ending.  I'll go with neutral.

Reading progress update: I've read 260 out of 320 pages.
World War Moo: An Apocalypse Cow Novel - Michael Logan

While this has gotten more serious, it still has its funny bits.

 

"...Got a comedian to tell them jokes. He swears the all laughed."

 

"What's a cow laugh sound like, the?" Tom said.

 

"I wasn't there, so I can't rightly say. A but evil, I imagine, like: Moo-ha-ha!"

Reading progress update: I've read 100 out of 320 pages.
World War Moo: An Apocalypse Cow Novel - Michael Logan

This book has become more serious than its predecessor.  While Apocalypse Cow did have serious bits, obviously, it was a lot more with the comedy and silliness.  This book has gotten down right serious.  As the virus has jumped now it's a fight for life on both sides of the fence.  And if faced with the choice, I have no idea which side I would chose.

#Fridayreads 2020-04-10 - who thought a vampire book could be so fresh?
The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires: A Novel - Grady Hendrix
Hounds of Autumn - Heather Blackwood
The Holiday - T.M. Logan,Laura Kirman

I've set aside my reading challenges at the moment to focus on some of the new books I've bought and to play Snakes and Ladders. Lockdown gives me time to read but also keeps distracting me from reading and has taken away my appetite for anything to serious.

 

The book I'm having the most fun with at the moment is Grady Hendrix's "The Southern Book Club's Guide To Slaying Vampires".

 

I picked this up because of Char's review and I'm glad I did,

 

I hadn't realised how "safe" vampire books had started to feel. We all know the rules and the participants all quickly work out the steps to their dance.

 

Hendrix blows all that away, not by making up new stuff about vampires but by focusing on the normal life of a bunch of Southern housewives in the mid-1980s. They have formed a book club that mostly reads true crime and it has become a way for them to support each other in all the crap life throws at them.

 

Now add a travelling man into the mix. A tall dark stranger with winning ways and an eye-condition that makes daylight panful and see what happens.

 

The outcome so far is not at all cosy. It's surprisingly disturbing because it's so easy to see this happening. 

 

 

"Hounds of Autumn" is a lottery book - I'm reading it because square 70 on Snakes and Ladders needed a book with Autumn on the cover.

 

It's mostly fun. There's a nice cosy mystery and some interesting technology and some flashes or anger at the Victorian ways of treating women as the property of their husbands,

 

I keep getting distracted by avoidable Americanisms in English characters.

 

What Englishman, on receipt of a loan, promises to "repay every cent"? Are Pounds, Shillings and Pence so hard to grasp?

 


"The Holiday" is actually a quite well-written suspense piece about a woman who believes one of the three life-long friends she is on holiday with is having an affair with her husband. She's determined to find out who.

 

 

When I read a chapter I become engaged with the story (although the characters are quite hard to like) but when I put the book down, I don't have a strong urge to go back to it

Never Kiss A Stranger - Logan Chance

Let's start off saying this is a brand new author to us and we really enjoyed our first read by them.The second page in and I was already laughing out loud and still several chapters later I was still going strong.This book was all kinds of crazy right down to the plot itself with its crazy yoga classes to its dog spa weddings to its goat eating frenzy all the while being kiss by a hot stranger in a parking lot that you will not soon forget.

The characters were amazing and the story just flowed and kept you glued to the pages the entire time.Is was easy to love most of the characters they were engaging and funny,some stuck up and boring and not wanting to face reality right down to the last one that is cumming and not in a good way.

I loved both Ellis and KiKi they had a lot of chemistry between them and a whole lot of hotness between them this couple knew how to burn up the sheets inside and outside of the bedrooms and the sexual romps were hotter then hell.

(That Kiki was one lucky girls lol)


Ellis was a character that you falling in love with instantly from his dashingly good looks to his home town charm with his amazing sense of humor.

KiKi was another character you down right loved because of her wicked sense of humor and she was bright and beautiful and sexy and one who goes out of her way to please others above herself time and time again but, she is no pushover mind you just a little bit confused and lost but, she had some really great friends to help guide her along with her common sense.


Overall we loved this crazy love story the whole entire story was infused with humor that had me laughing out loud the entire time and one that was all kinds of crazy but, in a good way.This is the perfect book to read to get out of a book funk you could be experiencing or just looking for a new author to read.I would definitely read more books from this author and looking forward to it.
