Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

Threats: A Novel

Threats - Amelia Gray *sigh* I was really hoping this would be a book that I could give 5 stars to, but alas I cannot.

The book started off fantastically with minute details regarding David and Franny's life together in the style of AM/PM which I loved. I liked how Amelia took me down the dark path of grief insanity in a really unique fashion, showing that we all have the curse of mortality and there's nothing we can do, but stave it off for short periods of time.

Even as the threats started showing up and things took a more bizarre turn (similar to the style of Museum of the Weird), I was intrigued by how the story would end. I was literally hanging on every word.

However, the ending just didn't deliver the punch I was hoping for. When I put down the book I felt empty and sad. Maybe that was the point, but I didn't really care for it.

All in all, I'm really glad I read Ms. Gray's first novel and am still intrigued to see what she will come up with next.
