Week in Review #7 (9-15 Feb.)


Read of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett (Ebook)

Product DetailsYou’ve got to be careful when you’re chasing a murderer through Bulikov, for the world is not as it should be in that city. When the gods were destroyed and all worship of them banned by the Polis, reality folded; now stairs lead to nowhere, alleyways have become portals to the past, and criminals disappear into thin air.

The murder of Dr Efrem Pangyui, the Polis diplomat researching the Continent’s past, has begun something and now whispers of an uprising flutter out from invisible corners. Only one woman may be willing to pursue the truth – but it is likely to cost her everything.

The book was about the politics, culture and religious beliefs of a place called the Continent, it is full of love. death (murder), mystery and intrigue.

This book was fantastic although at times it was quite heavy going due to the combination of the cultural, political and historical religious basis of the story.

The authors writing style and world building was great and at times made me the reader feel as though I was actually part of the story, which made the story even more intriguing. Shara the main character in the story was a very interesting, well educated, strong willed, gentle and loving person who was able to see things for what they were; and because of this was a character I really felt a connection to.

I will read this book again as well as recommend it to others and buy it as a gift for friends/family who I think will enjoy it which is why I gave the book a 4 star rating.

Tales from the End (The End of All Things # ) by Lissa Bryan

Book Information

Product Details

From the author of The End of All Things comes a collection of short stories about the Infection that swept around the globe, decimating the population, and leaving behind a small number of survivors, unprepared to deal with the brutal new world which had replaced the one they’d known.
The Horsemen
L.A.’s mayor has declared quarantine to try to halt the spread of the Infection. Pearl sets off across the city to buy supplies, but already the world is changing. Something strange is in the air. The Horsemen are coming …
When Veronica’s mother doesn’t come home from work and no one answers the phone when she calls for help, a nine-year-old girl is thrown into the chaos of a world coming to an end. Veronica decides it’s up to her to find her family. “Veronica” is the story of a little girl’s courage in the face of the end of all things.
“I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud”
They called her Shadowfax– the mare Carly and Justin found on their travels. But before she was found by Carly, the retired dressage horse was known as Cloud. An unusual tale of the end, told through the eyes of a confused and lonely horse, left in her pasture.
A previously-published bonus story. Carly knows Justin has never celebrated his birthday, and after society crumbled, no one knows what date it is, anyway. But she wants to do something special for him. Celebrating the little things helps them keep hope alive, and as a blizzard rages outside, a small gesture of love warms their home.

Tales of courage, tales of survival… Tales from the End.

This book was really great as it gave you background on some of the characters that the reader got to know in the first book (Birthday, “I wandered lonely as a cloud” and Veronica) and the first story in the book introduced the reader to a character that we will meet in one of the books following “The end of all things”.

In the Story entitled Veronica we learned about the background story of the little girl that we are introduced to at the end of the first book while the story entitled “I wander lonely as a cloud” was about Shadowfax (Cloud) the horse that Carly and Justin found in the early stages of their journey.

The story entitled Birthday gave the reader an insight into what life was like for Carly and Justin once they had settled in a house that they found on their travel route when she was pregnant which was very interesting.

While in the first story Horsemen introduced the reader to a character called Pearl who will obviously be in one of the future books in this series and it was very interesting finding out what her life had been like prior to the Infection and in the early stages of the crisis.

The authors writing style and world building in this book is as good as it was in The End of all things is still as good and kept me hooked throughout my reading. I would also read it again as well as reccommend it to others who are reading the series. It is because of all of this that I am giving the book 5 star rating

Bloggingforbooks: Bonita Avenue by Peter Buwalda

Dazzling…Critics hailed Buwalda as ‘The Dutch answer to Jonathan Franzen’, but his  brilliance is entirely unique.”–The Times (UK) 

Siem Sigerius is a beloved, brilliant professor of mathematics with a promising future in politics. His  family—including a loving wife, two gorgeous, intelligent stepdaughters and a successful future son-  in-law—and carefully appointed home in the bucolic countryside complete the portrait of a  comfortable, morally upright household. But there are elements of Siem’s past that threaten to upend  the peace and stability that he has achieved, and when he stumbles upon a deception that’s painfully  close to home, things begin to fall apart. A cataclysmic explosion in a fireworks factory, the advent of  internet pornography, and the reappearances of a discarded, dangerous son all play a terrible role in  the spectacular fragmentation of the Sigerius clan.

A riveting portrait of a family in crisis and the ways that even the smallest twists of fate can forever  change our lives, Bonita Avenue is an incendiary, unpredictable debut of relationships torn asunder  by lies, and minds destroyed by madness.
