Stephen King/Mike Flanagan’s DOCTOR SLEEP

Stephen King and Mike Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep

Mike Flannagan’s Doctor Sleep is quite possibly my favorite film of 2019. His take on Stephen King’s novel is outstanding. The prodigious effort Mike undertook to interweave King’s writing with Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining is something that resides somewhere between holy crap and black magic.

Tosca Lee’s A SINGLE LIGHT

A Single Light by Tosca Lee

Okay, confession time, before now, I had never read a Tosca Lee novel. I recognized her name and even enjoyed the covers to her books, but for whatever reason, I had never read any. Having said that, after reading A Single Light, the fact that she is a New York Times Bestselling Author becomes rather apparent. Continue reading “Tosca Lee’s A SINGLE LIGHT”

WALKING ALONE: SHORT STORIES by Bentley Little

Walking Alone by Bentley Little

Walking Alone is a fun collection of twenty-seven short stories written by Bentley Little. While not all of the stories are what I would call stellar, there are a few that stand out that I’ll mention here.

The first story to stick with me after reading was SNOW. For me, this is hands down the BEST story in the collection. After all, who doesn’t appreciate killer snowmen? Continue reading “WALKING ALONE: SHORT STORIES by Bentley Little”

Riley Sager’s FINAL GIRLS
Release Date: July 11, 2017
Review by: Daniel Boucher

From the cover:

Ten years ago, college student Quincy Carpenter went on vacation with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie–scale massacre. In an instant, she became a member of a club no one wants to belong to—a group of similar survivors known in the press as the Final Girls. Lisa, who lost nine sorority sisters to a college dropout’s knife; Sam, who went up against the Sack Man during her shift at the Nightlight Inn; and now Quincy, who ran bleeding through the woods to escape Pine Cottage and the man she refers to only as Him. The three girls are all attempting to put their nightmares behind them, and, with that, one another. Despite the media’s attempts, they never meet. Continue reading “FINAL GIRLS by Riley Sager”

THE GOD’S EYE VIEW by Barry Eisler

Barry Eisler’s THE GOD’S EYE VIEW
Release Date: February 2, 2016
Review By: Daniel Boucher

From the cover:

NSA director Theodore Anders has a simple goal: collect every phone call, email, and keystroke tapped on the Internet. He knows unlimited surveillance is the only way to keep America safe.

Evelyn Gallagher doesn’t care much about any of that. She just wants to keep her head down and manage the NSA’s camera network and facial recognition program so she can afford private school for her deaf son, Dash. Continue reading “THE GOD’S EYE VIEW by Barry Eisler”

THE 5TH WAVE by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave

Rick Yancey’s THE 5TH WAVE
Release Date: May 7, 2013
Review By: Daniel Boucher

From the cover:

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother–or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

Ok, I’m a sucker for a good alien story. If it’s about an alien invasion, then even better. I love to read books and watch movies about alien invasions–it’s a personal favorite.
