Falling Down: The Boy in the Iron Box | Guillermo Del Toro, Chuck Hogan

Mehso-so

This was a free short story for Amazon Prime members. A group of mercenaries crash in China mountains, facing limited chance of rescue. To escape wolves they enter a labyrinth with a deep well in the middle. There appears to be a box at the bottom. And it ends. This was clearly bait to buy the next books. But I felt no attachment and the title tells me it‘s going to be a boy in the box. So thanks but no thanks

Thirty Days of Darkness | Jenny Lund Madsen

A hoity-toity unlikeable Danish prose writer takes on a dare to write a simple mindless crime novel in 30 days. Her agent thinking this will sell more of her books finds a quiet place in #Iceland to send her for a month to write the book. Surprise! Someone is promptly murdered. So this idiot, disagreeable woman decided she‘d play detective. She‘s so obnoxious I truly wanted to bail, but the writing was excellent and the mystery compelling. ⬇️

Texreader I learned about living in a frighteningly cold environment & what happens when a lengthy blizzard hits. I learned how difficult small towns in this environment can affect folks who are different. The book is too long, and the troublesome main character takes far too long to start developing some common sense and humanity (almost 300 pages into a 400-page book). But it‘s still a good book and I‘m not disappointed having read it. #foodandlit 7d

I‘m on page 300 of this 394 page book and I‘ve been feeling the pain. The despicable main character is slowly, oh so slowly, becoming self aware. The author has 90 pages to redeem this character and warrant a pick for the book. I am curious as to who the murderer(s?) is but I‘m also wondering whether the author can dig out of this hole.

The author is taking her own writing advice in this scene where one crime fiction author is giving advice to an author writing her first crime novel. The main character is just awful. I‘ve wanted to bail a lot (also because it‘s very long for the subject matter), but I‘m anticipating that this book is mainly about her growth as a character and I want to know who committed the murder.

An Irish teacher wrote this book about Ireland‘s history and it‘s obvious. It‘s well-researched and written, and most importantly it‘s very interesting. I learned so much from the basic—who were the Celts? to the more recent—Ireland was neutral in WWII. I knew the English hadn‘t treated Ireland well but I didn‘t know the extent, and that the infamous potato famine was the result of onerous laws passed by the British government, which refused to ⬇️

Texreader undo the harm and instead the English people stepped up to volunteer and donate food and money during the crisis and tried to mitigate all the harm. I was dumbfounded at the centuries of abuse heaped on Ireland. I struggled with the narration by the author. The words were enunciated so much I struggled to listen to it. So I just kept speeding it up. But very glad I finished it before my trip next month to Ireland; it‘s an excellent book. (edited) 2w

A hunter sets out to hunt a blue fox, a vixen. But when a blizzard arrives, rather than do the sensible thing, he keeps following the fox for which there are consequences. Meanwhile, a gentleman comes upon a simple woman who has been obviously sexually abused en route to who knows where so he takes her in and they take good care of one another. What we don‘t know until the end is who is the hunter and what is the fate of the fox. This book ⬇️

Texreader has received a major Nordic award and rave reviews. The ending left me not caring at all and why I rate it only so-so. And the references to food were yucky. Oh well. #Iceland #foodandlit 2w

Poor preacher John Ferguson decides to make some money by helping a landlord evict Ivar from the island he‘s lived on his entire life. When John is shipwrecked and injured, Ivar nurses him back to health and teaches John his language. Meanwhile John‘s wife decides something has gone wrong, sells her wedding ring, and sets out to fetch him. There are many ways this book could have gone and I wasn‘t keen on the direction it took. I also struggled ⬇️

Texreader with the audiobook and the sequence of events being mixed up. Normally it doesn‘t bother me, but sometimes I struggled with the narrator‘s accent causing me to struggle more with the sequence. Once I got used to the narrator, whose accent was lovely even if I didn‘t always understand him, it was fine. Lovely descriptions and Mary was so sweet. I also loved Peggy the horse, the blind cow, and even the sheep. #camplitsy24 @Megabooks @squirrelbrain (edited) 2w
BarbaraBB I didn‘t mind the sequence of events because it is a rather quiet book that made me read it slowly. So I can indeed imagine the audiobook being not the right medium to read this book. 2w

A flu decimates the world‘s population. This book is a pretty realistic description of what happens next, which we can all imagine from our own experiences when Covid-19 came along. It follows multiple characters and how their lives intertwine despite the inoperable modern communications and transportation, as infrastructure breaks down for decades. I appreciated how the storyline about the “bad guy” was resolved and the hint of hope at the end.⬇️

Teresa, the “Queen,” is just the girlfriend of a drug runner pilot in Mexico until he gets himself killed. Given an escape to #Spain, and a stint in prison, she and her prison-mate Patty enter the big business of running drugs themselves especially between Spain and Morocco. Oddly Teresa comes off a hero and the audience cheers for her. The novel is complex and exquisitely told. The level of detail of running drugs and the enemies it creates ⬇️

Far into the future a time traveler tries to identify and correct an anomaly but faces a difficult challenge: if he knows some people he will interact with are going to die, and he wants to save them, will he be prohibited from further time travel because he‘s changed the timeline of the world?

A reader should have some knowledge of Irish history (I do not) before reading these little snippets of fact to appreciate most of them. I liked the more recent events he described, involving world events. It was so interesting to read about them from an Irish perspective. For example, I didn‘t know that Ireland was neutral during WWII. And that Ireland took in orphaned German children after the war in Operation Shamrock as few countries did.
