Book Review ~ Midnight Plan of the Repo Man

The Midnight Plan of the Repo ManThe Midnight Plan of the Repo Man by W. Bruce Cameron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received the ARC copy of this book from NetGalley to read and review. This is my 100% honest opinion.

Okay I know this is going to sound just plain wrong, but I saw this book and thought of it as a guys book. Not something I would normally pick up and read, but the story sounded interesting so I requested it.

I was not disappointed! This book had me smiling the whole way through it! It was funny, it wasn’t out right obnoxious humor. Rather it was real and down to earth as if the character himself just had a really good sense of humor. It made him likable and made me want to read more about him.

I thought it was an interesting take on the paranormal presence of a ghost in his head, or was he just crazy and hearing voices. Either way he trundles through his life screwing things up, makes good on it all and ends up with a very happy ending. And of course true to the writers nature there is a canine best friend in the story as well!

If you like murder mysteries with a twist that are a little bit funny then definitely check this book out! This is not the Mans Man book that I thought it would be, so yes even women will get a kick out of this story! The author did a great job of throwing in some unexpected twists and keeping the mystery going the entire time so that I wanted to keep reading to see what would happen. And yeah good or bad the twists were great and not as predictable as they are in some books. This was a fresh read where I didn’t feel like I knew what was going to happen next in the story!

360 degrees views of abandoned buildings in Europe

These are the stunning 360 degree images of Europe’s abandoned buildings that will get your head in a spin. Sven Fennema, 33, captured the incredible shots, which include a forgotten villa and casino in northern Italy and abandoned churches in Poland.

The photographer, from Krefeld, near Dusseldorf, then transformed the stunning landmarks into eye-catching panoramic images. His images also include a panoramic view of a hotel ballroom belonging to an abandoned sanatorium in Germany and an old wintercircus in Belgium.

He said: “360 degree panoramas are dear to my heart because I am able to invite visitors to follow me interactively on one of my trips and to see where my works are created. “It is not possible to show these panoramic views as pictures in the classical way, because an interactive view is impossible.

Book Review ~ The Raven Boys

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1)The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really liked this book and couldn’t drive around enough to finish it fast enough! I listened to it on CD in my car while commuting and it is one of those that made the time pass quickly and I was surprised when the book was over and I was out of CDs! I will definitely be reading the rest of the books in this series.

I liked how it was from several characters points of views and not just one, but it was done in such a way that I wasn’t confused. I always knew which character was doing the thinking or talking or whatever was going on.

Because the characters are both genders and range from teens to adults it would be a good read for YA-Adult readers of both genders.

It has a very mysterious and dark tone to the whole book while the group is looking for a mythological king. You know magic is at work, but not the full details or extent of it, which we will probably find out more about in the other books in the series.
