I am going to review two books that I read this past week or two.
The first is The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen. This book was published in 2001. It is the first book in the Rizzoli and Isle series. Lots of reviews on Goodreads complain because Isle is not in the book and Rizzoli looks nothing like Angie Harmon. I do not watch this TV show, however; I have read enough books to movie and books to TV to realize sometimes the main character will not look like they are portrayed in the book. To all those goodread reviewers I say pull your head out your butt and realize the book came first. This book is well written, very engrossing. Characters are believable and the story keep me turning the page to see what would happen next. The “bad guy” was truly a surprise, don’t you hate when you guess the bad guy in the first few chapters? I want to read the next in the series that is a sign of a good book right? When you want to see how the characters get flushed out in the following books.
The next book was one I picked up at Wal-Mart. Last Monday was a snow day for me we had 6-8 inches of snow and this girl was not driving in that. So the hubs was home as well and we ran some errands, after some melting occurred. We went to the local Wal-Mart got groceries and the hubs walked to the book section, stood there and said pick something. I got Viper Game by Christine Feehan. I love this author her genre is paranormal romantic suspense. Generally after I pick up one of her books I can’t put them down until I am done. I am pretty meh about this one. The author keeps repeating things throughout the book. Maybe by book 11 of a series you feel your readers might not remember small details so you have to keep repeating them. Who knows. The series is about men and women that become super soldiers. They are enhanced physically and psychically by the government, the men signed up for the project and unfortunately the women were taken as orphans and experimented on. The crazy doctor (because there must be one, right?) “paired” the men and women during the experiments to make bigger, badder, more dangerous Ghostwalkers as they are called. The other books in the series have been wonderful, entertaining and continue the storyline amazingly. This book has just left me feeling either the author can’t remember what she told us earlier in the book or I am too dense to realize she repeated herself on page 369 again. There are only 410 pages so maybe I forgot some important parts and needed a reminder. Overall I say to read Christine Feehan books maybe this book was not for me at this time.
