Creepers - Book Review

I just finished Creepers by David Morrell. It was a good page turner. The book is written well and its not one of those suspenseful books that you can guess the next plot twist or the ending which is always a plus. Sadly, it just wasn’t really my taste. I like a little more mystery in my reading, now if it had included a ghost it would be a keeper, but this one will be going back to the lender. I was also disappointed the hotel, the books main feature wasn’t real, at least I couldn’t find any information online.

Grade: B+
Recommended: If you like suspense

Hott fuzz - Movie Review

We also went to see Hot Fuzz in the theater. If you like Shaun of the Dead you will LOVE this movie. I love those two and the movie is great. I was worried they would use too many of the same bits and such from the first one, but they didn’t. I love how they can make a spoof and you don’t even realize your watching a spoof. See this one soon.

Sweet Charity

Sweet Charity:
So Matt and I went to see Sweet Charity last month. It was really good, but I wasn’t impressed with the ending. I won’t give too much away. It was neat to see Molly Ringwald on stage again. The next Charity is going to be Paige Davis.

The major disappointment of the night was that we went to a matinee and they didn’t have any swag for sale. I collect pins and I get a pin at every show we go to. Now I don’t have a pin for Sweet Charity. I even looked online for one…nothing. It saddens me.

I know the show has left but if you get the chance to see it you should… and pick me up a pin.

The Jane Austen Book Club - Book Review

Finished The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Fowler last month but was so bored by it I had forgotten to do a review. The book isn’t so much bad, as it just wasn’t my style. The writing was fine, I just didn’t feel there was a plot and even after reading it I’m left wondering the purpose and plot of the book. There isn’t a climax or even a story line in my personal opinion. A book should be working towards a main theme and hopefully that theme/problem will be slightly resolved in the end. Well Fowler never had to resolve the issue because she never developed an issue so in that since I guess the mission was accomplished.

Grade: D
Recommend: Probably not
