Book 9: I watched the only season of the series based on this book. The basic story is the same: on the way to intercept an alien ship, the crew of The Nightflyer experience strange things. Gory deaths occur. The story isn‘t substantial enough for multiple seasons—the important plot points were covered in one. The characters are very different, but are more fleshed out and interesting in the series. It‘s good, but not his best. #30booksin30days

Book 8: As much as I love comics, I used to not count graphic novels as real reading, but there is so much more to them. It took FOUR people to produce this volume (Joe Henderson, Lee Garbett, Antonio Fabela and Simon Bowland). It‘s beautiful, a whole world—an earth on which gravity has failed—brought to life. How would we live, grow food? What happens when it rains? Why did it happen at all? Lots of action, but also heart. #30booksin30days

I loved this audiobook. The reader, Paul Michael Garcia, is wonderful and this is just a great story. Chronically unemployed and self-described asshole Web takes a job with a crime scene cleaning company. There‘s a bit of gore and a bit of noir and a bit of the seedy side of Hollywood, all of which are great fun. But Web isn‘t just a lazy asshole and the slow reveal of who he is and how he got here is really the best part. #30booksin30days

The Time Machine | H.G. Wells

2 September 2019
It‘s satisfying to read a 100+ year-old book about time travel on a technologically advanced device (my iPhone, using the Serial Reader app). I loved how the Time Traveler at first believes the regression of the Eloi is due to communism, but in reality is the result of extreme capitalism. The Morlocks eat the rich indeed. #30booksin30days

I finished this one out of stubbornness, rolling my eyes at the widowed, 40-ish author falling in love with the 22-yo, flawless single mother (even if the character is embarrassed at himself). The writing is self-conscious, like King can‘t get out of his own head. The narrator quotes Chandler—when you‘re stuck on a story have a man come through a door with a gun in his hand—after the damsel in distress dies in the narrator‘s arms. #30booksin30days
