MY NEPHEW RECOMMENDED A NEW AUTHOR AND SERIES.


 AWAKENING (THE DARK RITUALS, BOOK1)

BY CATRINA BURGESS

POSSESSION (THE DARK RITUALS, BOOK 2)

My Nephew Wendell, who is my oldest nephew, just recently discovered this author on htt://www.wattpad.com and recommended this author  Catrina Burgess to me. He said that her books remind him of Kat Richardson‘s Greywalker (Greywalker, Book 1) books. He said that they are just a little bit darker. He cannot wait for book 3, for her writing is awesome. I have it on my list of books to read, now when I will get the time to read it that is a whole new story.

I have joined wattpad so I can see what authors are up and coming and if there are any good books out there. Apparently there is, because my nephew has just about read everything on wattpad. He has been reading 3-5 books a day. When he cannot sleep he will read all night long. I can say he now reads faster than I do now. I can usually read 3-5 books a week, but a day, not gonna happen,  Here lately it is a struggle to just stay awake when I get home from work.  That is the reason I have not posted in a few days. I get home, eat, sit down and get ready to post and before I know it, I am fast asleep. Usually someone has to wake me up to go to bed.

When I go to bed, I think I will read for a bit and before I know it I am rolling over onto my kindle. I have been doing that a lot lately.  I guess my iron is low again, because this happens when it gets low. I am anemic and have to take iron pills daily. Sometimes I forget, and I will have to double up on them.  I am getting off subject. Check out this author Catrina Burgess, I know I will. I guess that will be all for now, and I will talk with you tomorrow.

BOOK REVIEW: THE NAME OF THE WIND BY PATRICK ROTHFUSS

They say, writers should write what they love and Patrick Rothfuss seems to do so. He love stories. Telling them is one thing but to live and tell them is astonishing. And how a writer can live in the stories?… By his imagination. Imagination is infinite. You certainly don’t have to pay for it. It is legal to use. And it’s the best thing a human has got, I believe.  The Name of the Wind . At first, I never wanted to read it. But then, when strongly recommended by one of my friend, I borrowed his copy and read it. Now I can say, I can’t wait to read the second.  The Name of the Wind  introduce us to Kvothe, a figure which is hard to ignore not because he has red hair but because the mysterious intelligence the character has.

At the start level, the book is slow for a few pages, and it took me sometime to adjust. May be I was reading after a long time. But after reading the book, I read the starting few pages again. And I must say the style used by Patrick keeps things as simple as possible and he tries to create an enclosure by his words such that if a reader is immerse in his words, he will find hard to emerge out back to reality. The book, I must say, after reading 50-70 pages is very hard to put down. Though they say, the start and the end defines a book, I must correct them, ‘their’ saying might work for a story or a novella for they are short in length but for 600 plus page novel like The Name of the Wind you need to give it some time and at least 50-70 pages might be sufficient to start being judgmental about the book. Most of the times  this will work for fantasies as they happen to be a bit bulky in the length.

As I said the story will bind you from it roots and you will be immersed in the world of Kvothe. The culture, the geography ,the background of the story and especially my favorite part, the characters, which are developed at such a level that they won’t disappoint the reader. According to one interview, Rothfuss spent 14 years in developing this trilogy and I don’t know the truth, nor am I being judgmental here.

So I would recommend this book, but then you might end up reading the trilogy.

3.5 out of 5 from me.
