Recent Books — Stephen King, Girl With All The Gifts, Snake Pass, Legend, Fire with Fire


  • Finders Keepers by Stephen King. A fine detective novel, but makes me miss the glory days of the author.
  • The Girl With All The Gifts by M. R. Carey. Not all zombies are bad. Not all people are good. Maybe we should just let the zombies win.
  • Snake Pass by Colin Campbell. An attempt to start a Jack Reacher-like franchise, and not a bad attempt. I will read the next.
  • Legend by Marie Lu. Yet another post-apocalyptic dystopia. Probably better than most, but I don’t know that I need another series in this genre.
  • Fire with Fire, Trial by Fire by Charles E. Gannon. Fun space romp with aliens, world-ending threats to humanity, interstellar politics, etc.
