I probably should chuck books I am not enjoying, but I just can't seem to get there. It did get me in the gym so I'm going to try to continue. I think that it will be a good thing. It's almost fun to go with the prospect of getting more read each time I go. That being said, I hope my next book was more enjoyable than this one!

That's an interesting point. I do try to not let too much information go in my reviews on my blog so that I don't spoil the book for others which is part of why I didn't talk much about Sachtleben. I would agree with you to a point. I think the Epilogue kind of undoes that a bit. I felt like the Epilogue was like reading an entirely different book. I felt like the story became something of a stranger when I read it. I am still thinking about it.

Can't wait to talk to you about the book! Robert just took it from me yesterday so I'm sure it will be soon. Good choice, Roger. I really enjoyed this one!

I think you'd really like him. The book is definitely a fun read. It doesn't slog along like some books. I can't wait to get back to the trilogy! Game of Thrones is a great read too! You'll have to let me know how it all goes!

Someone in my work rogue book club thought the characters filled the slot they were put into as well, but everyone still enjoyed the book.

I'm with you. I didn't really find any of the scenes shockingly violent. I thought the fight scenes were actually quite fun. I could figure out what was going on even though I typically am not able to visualize the fight scenes. We should read the second together. I am going to post your review on my Facebook page tomorrow to give another point of view. I thought your review was well done even though I think we felt somewhat different about the book.

Maybe you should try this one. I have been in one too. I just don't feel like doing much of anything lately. LOL! I've been watching more TV and reading less. This book though, made me want to come home and read. I really enjoyed it. I am aching to read Well of Ascension, but I committed to reading a non-fiction book called The Lost Cyclist next. I'm feeling uninspired.

Hope all has been well with you. It's been a long time since I posted so I haven't talked to you in a long time!

Rufus Griswold...that just sounds sinister! Hehe! I actually don't really know anything about Poe. We read The Fall of the House of Usher in school, but I think that is the only poem I've read of his completely. I will have to download some of his work! Thanks for posting it. It was really interesting!

Oh, and by the way, I successfully went to a bookstore and bought nothing--I even passed up the sale table (I did buy a book to send to a friend which you said was allowed). How is your book buying ban going? I saw you said it wouldn't be so difficult after you found out how much your school books would cost!

I really like your Thursday 13. It is very insightful and I think you have a firm grip on who you are. I think that is very admirable!

If you want something fast I'd go with Angels and Demons or Deja Dead. If you want a meaty read I'd go with Crime and Punishment.

I love this idea. Definitely signing up for this!

I really need to read Philippa Gregory someday. It seems like everyone loves her books!

I just wanted to stop by to let you know that I posted the picture of the copy of Stolen by Kelley Armstrong you sent me for your 222 Follower Giveaway. Thanks again! I hope I can get to it soon.

That puppy picture is SO cute. I'm really sorry about the flooding in your basement! I hope things start going better for you--laptop, flooding, storms and all! :)
