Mine book Review
I'm always reading something, lately I've been reading out of my preferred genre (which is horror).
When I saw this cover, that's what I must have thought it was. Normally I'm pretty good at judging books by their cover, (literally) however I was wrong, so judge for yourself.
I have actually read one of Robert's books before when I was much younger. (In school? maybe) called They Thirst. Its one of the few early books I've read and at least remember the title. I have a copy of it (though sadly not the one with the cover I remember) but i'm wondering what about the book made me remember it, to check it out again. (I've included it below) Maybe the writing style, story, otherwise I do not know. What I do know is, if it was anything like this book; I will not be bored reading it.
Mine Mine mine...Not
For once judging the book by its cover was not good enough. I thought it would be a horror, but its more a thriller (maybe crime novel even).
So I'm a little disappointed in that. The book for what it was, was cool I read it in about 2 weeks (which is a good thing)
The story is about Mary who used to be in the Storm Front, a revolutionary group from the '60s. She's still living in the past, and steals Laura's newborn from the hospital. This is a book of "What lengths would you go to, to get your child back?" How many laws would you break, would you be willing to kill someone? If you are a parent I guess this would be more a terrorizing horror but I'm not so it was nothing more than a Thriller (& if ever a movie is made maybe action as well) It was a good book. Compelling, never a dull moment once it takes off.
Take it from me, even if it's not you preferred genre, this is definitely one to read
Battle of the Roberts
here are a few Authors named Robert. Who are you most familiar with reading? Or is the best one
Which one do you like reading more
We Thirst for more
I have this book & read it way back in the days that I can't even remember what it was about. By the title I'm guessing vampires..(of some sort)
If you don't rad Mine, then I suggest this. Hey if I remember the name and want to read a book a 2nd time, usually it means it made a good impression, as I don't really remember ones I did not care for.
