Coben, King and Wilson

I recently got through a few different reads. The first was a young adult title by F. Paul Wilson, SECRET CIRCLES. This is the second of a three book set of YA offerings talking about Repairman Jack's childhood and his encounters with the strangeness that has become the driving force in his "Otherness" series of books. Very well done, in my opinion. I look forward to the third and last of these, which I believe will be out before the final Repairman Jack novels in the story arc known as the "Secret History of the World".

Another recent read was Harlan Coben's LIVE WIRE which continued the story of agent extraordinaire Myron Bolitar, who once again gets himself, Win and Esperanza wrapped up in a sticky situation. This time he's investigating a Facebook post on the page of his client, now-pregnant tennis great Suzze T., which simply states "Not his". This echo from Suzze T's (and Myron's) past blows up into something that threatens to change everything for Myron et al. I've really ended up caring about these characters over the years, and I love the idea of the past coming forward to haunt people in their present lives.

The last was a story that was sitting on my kids' Kindle for a long time - Stephen King's UR. What a neat little story. The pink Kindle that the main character gets does a bit more than my kids' simple white one does. For example, Hemingway wrote a whole lot more books available on this Kindle. Where he wrote them is up for debate. Great little story. I have been away from Mr. King's work for too long.

Take care, happy reading!
