Mockingbird | [Chuck Wendig]

Mockingbird

Miriam is trying. Really, she is. But this whole "settling down thing" that Louis has going for her just isn't working out. She lives on Long Beach Island all year round. Her home is a run-down double-wide trailer. She works at a grocery store as a check-out girl. And her relationship with Louis - who's on the road half the time in his truck - is subject to the piss and vinegar Miriam brings to everything she does. Still, she's keeping her psychic ability - to see when and how someone is going to die just by touching them - in check. But even that feels wrong, somehow. Like she's keeping a tornado stoppered up in a tiny bottle.

Publisher's Summary

Miriam is trying. Really, she is.

But this whole "settling down thing" that Louis has going for her just isn't working out. She lives on Long Beach Island all year round. Her home is a run-down double-wide trailer. She works at a grocery store as a check-out girl. And her relationship with Louis - who's on the road half the time in his truck - is subject to the piss and vinegar Miriam brings to everything she does.

Still, she's keeping her psychic ability - to see when and how someone is going to die just by touching them - in check. But even that feels wrong, somehow. Like she's keeping a tornado stoppered up in a tiny bottle.

Then comes one bad day that turns it all on her ear.

    "Darkly delicious"
    What did you love best about Mockingbird?

    I loved the noir urban fantasy feel to the story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mockingbird?

    It is hard to choose just one moment. The creep factor every time Miriam had one of her visions was darkly delicious.


    What about Emily Beresford’s performance did you like?

    I liked the matter-of-fact tone she used to portray Miriam


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely

    Story
    "Less interesting sequel to Blackbirds"

    There's an old Ukranian proverb - 'a pig will find the filth' - that perfectly describes the protagonist of this novel. No matter what is in store for Miriam Black, she will not fail to make the worst possible choice and will go out of the way to alienate very few people that actually care for her and her well-being.
    This self-destructing behavior, usually followed by wails of self-pity, is mildly amusing to make one want to finish first book, but having same theme going for the second one is a little lazy, imho.

    Characters are rather bland and, in best traditions of B-movies and soap operas, have the need to explain their motives in long sentences. I'm no prude, but it felt that Mr. Wending used some profanity generator that inserted them into text almost at random.
    Also, for those for forgot the theme of the first book - "fate is a bitch." It is repeated over and over again, just in case someone didn't get it yet.

    The most interesting part about the first book - Observers, or Fate enforcers, or whatever they were called in the first book are completely absent form the second.

    overall rating: meh
