Alli’s #CBR5 Reviews 10,11,12 – Dark Tower Completion

dark

Here are my final reviews for CBR5. I didn’t quite make my quarter cb goal for the year but I am excited to get started on CBR6! I will be using my twitter name this year @allibaba77 and I look forward to being a part of this wonderful community again.

I decided to compile them into one as I am not sure how much I will have to say about each one as they really do all fit together into a really long story. Of course although it doesn’t really need to be said, there will likely be spoilers so if you have not read the series and do not want to know about it then this is not the best place for you to be. Also my details might get all mixed up but that is the way things go sometimes.

Ok, so “Wolves of the Calla” really got me back interested in the story again. I enjoyed “Wizard and Glass” but it was almost entirely a flashback so I was glad to get back into our main story as that is where the heart of the tale lies. I was a bit concerned that we would never get back into our heros’ quest as this story takes us into another town, Calla Brin Sturgess where they have this unique problem where “wolves” come every generation or so and take some of their children and they are returned “roont” or ruined. Some of the citizens ask our gunslingers for help an although this aid takes up most of the book, I was glad that it really tied in well with the main story.

Alli’s #CBR5 Review #6: Booky Wook 2 by Russell Brand

My life sure did get hectic for me over the past few months and although I did some reading (not as much as I would like) I did not take the time to get on here to write the reviews. I thought about it a lot if that counts for anything, then it got to the point where it had been so long since I had written that it seemed impossible to get started writing the reviews. Then there is the problem of remembering both the names of the books I read as well as what I thought of them. I will do my best to catch myself up and get myself to the 1/4 cannonball goal for 2013.

I had rather enjoyed his first book, and reading over that review it seemed I felt at the time that the second was not quite as good. I had written that before I had finished reading it, but as I recall I didn’t love it but it wasn’t too bad either.
