A Haiku and Some Ramblings

A long journey starts

Pages flipped, a story told

Now it’s concluded

I just finished reading The Passage Trilogy and I have to say, Whoa!, what a great and powerful set of books. If you haven’t read them then you should. The stories aren’t just a unique take on the Vampire legend. They are stories about love, survival, and a will of the human race to not be laid asunder by these new monsters. I think the first book is probably the best, but all three are great and there is a section of the story in the second book that you (I don’t care how busy you are) will not be able to put down. Great writing. Great stories. Great characters. I can’t recommend these books enough. So, have you read them? 

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • This thrilling novel kicks off what Stephen King calls “a trilogy that will stand as one of the great achievements in American fantasy fiction.”

I haven’t reviewed a lot of stuff on here lately. The reason? I honestly just don’t enjoy doing it all that much. It takes up too much time. I get few likes. No comments. It seems like nobody is reading them when I do them, so I stopped. However, there are a few things I’ve seen recently that I have to talk about.

First and foremost, Spider-man: Homecoming. I’m a huge Spider-man fan, but this one left me kind of flat. I felt like there was too much Avengers stuff in this movie. It seemed like Spidey instead of fighting crime was just sitting around waiting on Tony to call. Iron Man also showed up too much, and saved the day too much. I did like the new suit, but it felt more like an Iron Man suit than a Spidey suit. Gripes aside, this was still a great movie from start to finish. A lot more things worked than didn’t work and I would rank it probably fourth in the recent Spider-man movies. The Amazing Spider-man, Spider-man 2, and the first Spider-man in that order being better than this one. So, your thoughts? I also watched Logan (great movie) and The Lego Batman Movie (also great, and funny). I also have gotten hooked on The Flash TV Show. Somewhere now in the mid part of the second season. I don’t binge watch shows, but this one has me watching it sometimes up to three times a day. Supergirl is also churning along nicely in its second season. Okay, so I’ll zip it here. Have a great weekend.

    1. I think you would enjoy reading them. The Wonder Woman movie was really good. You should definitely see it when it hits home video.
