Two book reviews at once!! Yes, that is what I'm talking about today.
The first book, The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson was a tedious 'listen' on Audible. It was an okay story but I often got lost along the way. I kept falling asleep while listening and then had to go back and refresh my memory. It's a fairy tale of sorts. A 100 year old man climbed out the window of the nursing home where he lives and goes on a pretty unbelievable adventure. The story is funny at times and at other times it is just hard to get through! The book switches back and forth from his past to the present day! It will give you a few chuckles so give it a spinif you decide to jump in.
The next book I listened to was Jack of Spades by James Hankins. James has become one of my favorite authors. (He also wrote st The Prettiest One, Drawn, and Brothers and Bones which I have reviewed). This one didn't disappoint! I love a good suspense story. This one involves a police detective trying to capture a twisted serial killer who is torturing his victims all the while wearing a 'voice'changing cartoon mask'. (If you don't like thinking of these types of crimes this book won't be for you. It is graphic.) I enjoyed listening to it because of the voice changes. The ending is satisfying to those of us who like to see offenders get what is coming to them. I can't wait to read more from James Hankins.
I'm off to start my next book. I have both an Audible pick and one for the January book club to start. I think I'm going to put the Viet Nam book on the shelf for a bit!
