Ever since I was a little girl, I have been in love with fairy tales. Tales of lore, magic and mythical beasts. Even the villainous creatures and witches have shared my dreams and nightmares. It’s a world we’ve all grown up with, so when I saw Julia Blake’s blurb on her, at the time new novel, The Forest ~A Tale of Old Magic~, I knew I had to read it.
Before I go into details on the story, I have to first commend Blake on her writing skills. The way this book is written, it’s as if I was taken back, through time and space, into a ensorcelled world. The prose, the style- everything about The Forest, Blake graced with true finesse and talent. With my being an Anglophile, anything that works the mythos of English, Scottish, Irish fantasy, I run for it hook, line and sinker. I was not disappointed.
A Novella by Stephen King
I am a fan of Stephen King. I've been a follower of his work since junior high school, during a time when I had difficulty fitting in with the other kids because I was always the new one. It was tough, but reading of giant slugs, sucking eyeballs flat, dogs approaching your porch in Polaroid photos and black sludge eating you alive in abandoned lakes always got me through.
I recently read Elevation, erm... listened to Elevation, read by Mr. King himself. Did this one carry me through as well?
You know how you can start reading a book, and once you're like through the first quarter of the book, you know how it's going to all end? That's how I felt with this novel, but that's not to say it wasn't written exceptionally well. It's not that I wasn't drawn in to the characters and what the story was about, either. I just knew how things would settle down.
This is Dark Age, by Felix Hartmann.
Yes, another Netflix movie review. Honestly, I really do have a life, just seems that I do nothing but sit on my duff, read and watch tv. Not true at all. So I watched a movie called Don't Knock Twice. When I saw it, I wasn't sure what was going to take place or how it would end. It was one of those I couldn't guess on.
So does that mean I liked it?
