Slightly more than two years ago, I stumbled across Peter Clines’ novel of cosmic horror, 14. It wasn’t an earth shatteringly brilliant story, but, as I described it initially, it “scratched an itch I didn’t know I had”. Since then, I’ve read The Fold, and Paradox Bound. The latter book was fairly disappointing in my opinion, and I was left reframing my thoughts around Peter Clines. 14 was great. The Fold was very good, but I had issues with some of the characters and how […]
https://killingmykindle.com/2019/02/02/episode-2-03-misty-water-colored-memories/ Wherein I review: 6. Ex-Purgatory (Ex-Heroes #4) by Peter Clines 7. No Sunscreen for the Dead (Serge Storms #22) by Tim Dorsey 8. Treason’s Harbour (Aubrey & Maturin #9) by Patrick O’Brian 9. Ex-Isle (Ex-Heroes #5) by Peter Clines 10. Cadillac Desert by Marc Reisner Illness and big-ass books make for strange bedfellows. Peter Clines brings his superheroes vs. zombies saga to a close – definitely for now and probably for good. Serge keeps serging, spewing Florida trivia and murdering a-holes. Aubrey & Maturin […]
https://killingmykindle.com/2019/01/19/episode-2-02-1-6th-choctaw/ Wherein I read: 4. Ex-Communication (Ex-Heroes #3) by Peter Clines 5. Verses for the Dead (Agent Pendergast #18) by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child As I type this sentence, I wonder why Peter Clines amazing superheroes battling zombies series hasn’t already been optioned and turned into your favorite series yet. As I type THIS sentence, I wonder if Preston & Child got notes from some marketing douche and wrote this book like “Is this what you wanted, you f**kface?”
https://killingmykindle.com/2019/01/10/episode-2-01-tell-me-lies-tell-me-sweet-little-lies/ CANNONBALL 11 HAS BEGUNNETHED. Wherein I review: 1. Ex-Patriots (Ex-Heroes #2) by Peter Clines 2. The Farm by Tom Rob Smith 3. A Delicate Touch (Stone Barrington #48) by Stuart Woods More delicious zombies vs. superheroes where we finally meet up with the military. And they wisely utilize Arkham Asylumishness. A son must decide whether his mother is being gaslit by his father or if her entire tale is a lie. Stuart Woods keeps being all Stuart Woodsy.
https://killingmykindle.com/2018/08/08/episode-1-29-what-the-fuck-did-i-just-read/ Wherein I review: 111. A Highly Unlikely Scenario, or a Neetsa Pizza Employee’s Guide to Saving the World by Rachel Cantor 112. Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan 113. The Fold by Peter Clines 114. High-Rise by J.G. Ballard 115. Turbulence (Stone Barrington #46) by Stuart Woods Sometimes your little brain needs to get fried. This was a combo platter of what the f–kery. I enjoyed Robin Sloan’s wonderous cult of personality, and Peter Clines’ Lost-esque pseudo-sequel to 14. Didn’t so much love […]
