Throughout, I was thinking, is this what it would be like if Raymond Chandler's 'Philip Marlowe' was modernised and plonked in an Urban Fantasy environment?! - Perhaps written by Ben Aaronovitch.

It's an very interesting premise... what happens to a magical world, when the magic is gone?

I liked the plot, the world building, the main character. I liked it all.

It's fast, it's fun, and it's a bit noir.

I have a question before I begin. What's your favourite Grady Hendrix book? - I'm willing to give him another try.

My suspension of believe in the real world is easy, and I'm happy to do it to help a book along its way. But my disbelief at how tedious this was to read, is unbelievable! The premise sounds like such fun. At a guess, I'd say Grady Hendrix grew up like me watching these same films, and I really enjoyed the beginning of this book - trying to link his new fictional characters, to their new fictional versions of Slasher movies. It was a quirky little quiz whilst the novel built a basis for why these women and their support group exist...

And there the fun and enjoyment ... stopped!

Here's a list of why I thought this book was a disappointment:

- The characters not only lack depth, they're shallow to the point of evaporation. I found myself, on more than one occasion, hoping the killer would do me a favour, break the script and kill them all so I could finish faster.
(With the strange exception with Marilyn. I quite like her, for whatever reason).

- The dialogue is disjointed at best, painfully dull at worst.

- The story was, in a word, boring.

- This book is neither scary nor thriller. It's not funny nor is it thought provoking. It could have been all four - in fact, I think it thinks it is.

- For me at least, would have been better written in third-person. Mostly because the lead Final Girl (Lynnette) isn't interesting enough to prop the story up, and because it might have lead to some jeopardy toward the final third of the book.

- There are at times, throughout, that the book tries to ask the question in a vaguely feminist voice: "Why do women have to die for your entertainment?!" - which is a valid question. But they're presented as being shouted from the back of the room by a fat, bald, middle aged white man - and even I think that patronising.

Tried and true story format, told to perfection by the master of the slow build/big payoff.

The story itself is about a former marine sniper turned hitman, somewhat reluctantly, taking one last big job... What could possibly go wrong, right?

But! the book is about so much more than that. As with all of King's best novels, the story plays second fiddle to the characters. Within these pages, he really made me care about Billy Summers. Every time Billy had a pitfall or setback... I really rooted for him to get back on his feet and win.

This book is about friendships, love, and camaraderie. It's about carrying on, struggling through, and the redemption you hope to find on the other side.

The world building and alternative history are compelling and really well thought out. The characters are interesting, their journey intriguing.

The story suffers towards the end by being both overly complicated and kind of obvious.

I was also disappointed that the spooky element there was in the beginning didn't last.

Decided to have a nose around my local bookshop (@bookcasecarlisle) after lunch. Bought two #Discworld novels and completed my #TheDarkTower set. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ“š #bookhaul #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookish #booklover #bookaholic #bookaddict #booksbooksbooks #readersofinstagram #mybookfeatures #stephenking #SirTerryPratchett #TerryPratchett

The Disc Down Under: Also, Out of Time.

Amusing, chuckle out loud - at points, but ultimately probably the most aimless book in the series. Yes, it's about evolution, and time and causality. But really, what's the point when the Wizards disregard how their actions might change things, or... is that the point? That ultimately, nothing really matters?!

Suffers from confused plots, tired stereotypes, and both too many characters and too few standout characters - I mean, I still like the Senior Wizards, specifically Ponder, but occasionally it's dull having them all try to speak at once.

Remains one of my least favourite entries.

Poe and Tilly are back. This time it's the case of a missing and reappearing daughter, an obnoxious chef, and Poe's past.

The pace is fast, the characters are interesting, and the crimes complex enough - unless you've watched a certain episode of 'Forensic Detectives' *wink wink*. For me it was more about the why? Not the how.

As with the last book, I love how Cumbria is portrayed, as though it's another character. Yes it's beautiful, but it's also gritty and soulful, and almost has a life of it's own.

Plus, as a local - I suppose I have to admit that now - it's fun for me to work out what places have given the author his inspiration. As well as recognising the few name drops.

I'm really enjoying Poe and Tilly's relationship growing, and more over, Tilly's growth as the stories progress.

This is the first book I've read both by a Native American, and with Native American main characters.

You're sunk deep into the culture, and personal & tribal believes from the outset. They're present throughout and the story is deeply rooted and driven by these factors.

The story centres around four men from the Blackfoot Confederacy, an act they committed in their youth - against tribal laws - and the retribution they face from a vengeful entity.

It's gory and brutal, and at the same time rich and endearing.

This entry in the Discworld is by no means Sir Terrys finest work.
The plot, at times, doesn't make a whole bunch of sense - but when did war ever have to make sense? I hear you scream.
... and the usual level of Watch nonsense is only really present for the first third of the book. After that, there are - like the watch itself - many moving separate parts.

BUT, it's far funnier than I remember.

I adore Leonard of Quirm. He's definitely one of my personal favourites.
