Review: The Fireman
The Fireman CD: A Novel - Joe Hill

This was so good. And scary. Going through an actual pandemic at the moment has me scared that things will get as bad as they are in this book. Government could break down, people could start a revolution. You just don't know what scared people will do. Fear drives you to craziness. That being said, the characters were great. Harper was sweet and it was nice seeing her transition from the meek of a jerk to a tough independent women fighting to save her unborn child as well as the friends she made along the way. John, the Fireman was a piece of work. He was a jerk, but the kind you like. The kind who is only a jerk to keep you safe. All of the fear of the spore made everyone nuts--those infected and those not. It was well told, long but not overly so.

 

My only gripe is a reoccurring theme with Hill and his father Mr. King. Why must they always put some sort of animal death/abuse/torture in their novels. It's never necessary and it never to help the plot along. It's there for shock value and it's not an attractive trope. I hate it. I'm not sure how many more of their books I can read if this really is a common thread between them.

 

Note to self: I'll rewrite this later when there is more time to be eloquent. I just wanted  to write my initial feelings before I jump into my next read for Dewey's.

 

Note to self v2.0: I think this is as eloquent as I'm gonna get.

Why the mother fucking cat?! Fucking Joe Hill and Stephen King cannot be trusted to protect animals in their novels.

Finally the assholes are getting what they deserve.  Sadly the good characters are getting caught up in it.  It's a real nail-biter wonder who's going to make it out unscathed.  Hoping to be finished by the time I do my first quarter update.  Enjoying!

OMG this is so good, but some of the characters are pissing me the hell off!  Craziness.  and I'm not sure if it's the spore or the power that is making people cuckoo.

Steamy
Burn Zone (Hotshots #1) - Annabeth Albert

Jacob has been in love with Lincoln for a while.  They have had to live apart, since Lincoln would not give them a chance and hurt his best friend.  Jacob being his best friends little brother put a kink in the works.

 

Lincoln is not sure what to do when Jacob not only comes back to town, but works with him as a smoke jumper as well.  He has paid his dues.  The only issue now is can Lincoln let Jacob run in danger and not blow his cover?  His feelings have been hidden and now they may come to light.

 

This story was so HOT!  I mean that in both the figurative & literal ways.  I loved that this was a second chance story.  The job is dangerous, but so is loving someone forbidden.  These characters made losing sleep worth my while, as I could not put this one down until I finished the whole thing.  Lots of sparks a flyin'!  I give this read a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
