I am reading Michael Connelly's "Blood Work." I've been on a Michael Connelly kick the past few months and have been going back and reading some of the ones I missed along the way.
I am listening to Summer of Night by Dan Simmons. I've been listening to it for a long time too. It's a long audiobook and I listen for 45-60 minutes a day when I walk the dog. I'm almost done but I think I've been listening for close to a month. It's very good but it did take a little while to get going.
Simmons has a sequel called A Winter Haunting..........just saying.
Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. But I get the same feeling from seeing interviews with him: however much there is, I want there to be more. Like 'Just keep talking, Stephen, I'll tell you when I've heard enough'.
Back to books, and finishing the annual release is the closest I get to the Christmas anti-climax I used to feel when I was a kid: you know the magical time will come again, but it's a whole year away - and just at that moment (which, when I was a lad, usually fell at the end of Christmas Day itself when my Nan always said "Well, Christmas is as far away now as it ever is". Cheers, Nan) it's eternity in there.
kingricefan: The last time I really enjoyed anything of his was around the time of Fear Nothing and Seize The Night. The Taking wasn't too shabby (bit too much like The Mist in some ways, mebbe), but IMO it was nothing spectacular. As for the others...well, the writerly powers aren't what they used to be. Maybe if he strangled a golden retriever with a thin rope made from bougainvillea stems in one of his books...
I'm really deep into Getting Mother's Body and it's touching all of my emotions but I'm having Dr. Sleep withdrawals. I miss everyone.
After I read one of Stephen's books I'm left wanting so much more. That's no fault of his . . .I'm just greedy! It's like being addicted to a drug. Know what I mean? When I know he’s got a new book coming out I feel so happy and excited but at the same time I feel a sense of loss because I know I’ll devour its ‘steam’ and then feel so alone again.
Aw . . .damn!
It feels like Sunday night and you have to work in the morning!
