WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

Boy! I haven't post on my blog in about a minute or so.There's good reason why  I haven't post any reviews on my blog.For one,life happened and it became increasingly busy,.It became so busy enough I just didn't feel like posting or doing any book reviews.I started a new job that  almost zaps the energy out of me,but none the less I still like it and thank GOD I have a job.Another thing that happen to me was,I move into another apartment and the move itself wasn't easy,but again I'm grateful for this apartment.So,I will be back writing and posting my reviews  on books  real soon,I wont say when, but I will just jump into posting my reviews

Stephen King returns with sequel to 'The Shining' - Yahoo News





The king of fright Stephen King's book"The Doctor Sleep" picks up where the Shining the has left off.With the son being an alcoholic ike his dad,and having special powers.The book delves into the  son life and his demons as an adult,and possibly his powers as  he chooses to heal with.I personally haven't read this book,but I have seen the movie enough to know, this could be another one of Stephen Kings best seller.I'm
not going to jump the gun and say it is,like I said I haven't read it.But when the author writes a sequel to to one of his best sellers which was turn into a movie.You got a think, if this book as good as the "Shinning" or even better.Also, I saw the movie and I always wonder what happened to the mother and the son.Well, the book picks up where the book/movie sort of left off.Here's an in depth interview with the author,click on Yahoo's link:

SINISTER

Colton Dillinger doesn't want to attend his  fathers wedding,which means traveling back home and dragging up old memories he left in the past.Ira Dillinger isn't having it and he wants all of his kids to attend his wedding,and he isn't taking no for an answer.The thing is Ira is marrying one of Colton's ex-lover,who he has a love child by.Prairie creek is a small town in Wyoming where everyone knows every one and where the wedding is to take place.Ira  is wealthy Cattle farmer and the Dillinger's been living in Prairie Creek every since Ira could remember,and their  feud with the Kincaid's another wealthy  farmer is/has been a long standing history in Prairie Creek.
Everyone in the town is preparing for Ira's nuptials and the Christmas holidays and his kids hesitantly decides to come and attend his wedding,but their's only  one problem, a killer/fire starter is lurking ready for the next kill and making the people in  town  feel on edge, and possibly  putting the Dillinger family in harms way.
             ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 
when I first started reading this book, I thought good, one main character to stick to.But as I read on, the author or shall I say authors of the book introduce you to a host of characters of the book to get you familiar with. You get to know certain people in the town and a little back history on certain people there besides the killer's Sinister ways. The way the authors describe the characters in the book and the town they lived in.It was  kind of like I knew them personally,but reading about them from afar.I did at times question why is the author(s) is giving all this back ground history on certain people in the town,I'm  guessing so I/you(the reader) can get a feel of who the people are in Prairie Creek.
Suffice to say,It seems like it took me a long time to read this book ,not to say that it was boring or anything.I just had to read it on my pc and if you read any book like that ,you know how uncomfortable that is.but, the killer seems to come around  in intervals and stir things up,and not to mention the kindling/budding romances.Also I want to add ,that the authors kept me guessing to the very end,when I had a clue as to who the killer might be I had to guess again.This book is definitely a must read!!!!
