  • The King of Lies

    John Hart creates a literary thriller that is as suspenseful as it is poignant, a riveting murder mystery layered beneath the southern drawl of a humble North Carolina lawyer. When Work Pickens finds his father murdered, the investigation pushes a repressed family history to the surface and he sees his own carefully constructed facade begin to crack.

    Overall

    I'll be the first to admit that the storyline is engaging. The only reason I finished the book is that I couldn't resist finding out "who done it." However, the characters are completely flat. Each person falls into one of two camps: Completely Good or Completely Evil. In fact, I have trouble sympathizing with the narrator from the beginning; the author gives us no reason to! The worst part of this book was listening to clich? and after clich? dribble off the tongue of the overly dramatic narrator. One almost imagines that the author had a list of catch phrases next to him as he wrote the book. All in all, the author clearly has a talent in weaving out an engaging plot, but the character development and writing need some work.

  • Wolves of the Calla: Dark Tower V

    Roland Deschain and his ka-tet are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the future's only promise. Followers of Stephen King's epic series know Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the Dark Tower: Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers; and Oy.

    Overall

    After reading the can't-put-it-down fourth book in this series, Wizard and Glass, I was a bit disappointed by Wolves of the Calla. This may in part be because Salem's Lot is quite possibly my least favorite King book and characters from that book reappear in this one. Many of the plot twists seemed extraneous and didn't add much in terms of action or interest. I can only hope they play some sort of role later. And I hate it when the author of the book becomes part of the story, which he does in this and the following book; it's such a big no-no that only someone of King's stature could get this by his editors! On the plus side, the characters become better developed, and the folks of the Calla are a joy to meet. I only hope they reappear again "along the path of the beam." Can't wait for Dark Tower VII!
