The Alexandria Link

I finished listening to The Alexandria Link by Steve Berry on Saturday.  It is the second book of the Cotton Malone book series. There are 12 books in the series. I am really loving Steve Berry’s books. So far these books really made me think.

Warning: there are one sad part and some violence.

In the Alexandria Link, Cotton Malone’s son gets kidnapped. The kidnapping was actually a ploy to get Cotton to led the bad guys to the Alexandria Link. The Alexandria Link was actually a person.  This person knew where the Alexandria Library was and had knowledge that they wanted to use to their benefit.  Cotton did get his son back. In the end, some of the bad guys were killed and the library is saved from getting exposed.

I do have the third book, but I’m reading now The Circle by Dave Eggers.  I’m almost through with it. I’m thinking about watching the movie Monday instead of Children of Men.

I’m back

Friday I did watch the first episode of Thirteen Reasons Why. I think I’m going to like the show. The show is a little different to the book though.

Sunday we did go the mountains. Unfortunately, we had to leave Sneezy, our male black cat, outside while we were gone. Lily stayed in the house. When we came home last night we couldn’t find Sneezy. I hope we will be able to find him today. We went to a place called Shatley Springs. It’s in Crumpler, NC. We stayed in a cabin. The cabin we stayed in has no tv, but they do have wifi. Yesterday morning we went to West Jefferson, NC. We went to the cheese factory. I got some more nuts and got some fudge. We looked in the shops near the cheese factory. Then we came home.

I did have a good time. I’m glad I’m home though.

Into the Badlands (season finale)

I was so excited that Into the Badlands was coming back on tv. My mother and I really like the show. But I don’t like one part of this season’s finale. Even though I didn’t like that one part, I can’t wait for next season.

Into The Badlands is a martial arts show. Chris did like some of the first season. He watched some of it while we are in Las Vegas. This season Sunny is on his way back to the Badlands to get his son and girlfriend. M.K. was in a monastery where he was trying to control his power. But in the end, he loses it. The widow believes he can get it back though. Sunny does get back to the Badlands, but his girlfriend kills Quinn (yay) and herself (boo). Sunny does get his son back.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Since I will be away this weekend (going to the mountains), I decided to watch next week’s movie. I watched Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. I had read the book last year. My mother’s boyfriend (now ex) kept asking when I was going to see the movie. Now I have seen it. It has Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Danika Yarosh, and Madalyn Horcher in it.

Warning: there is lots of violence.

The book is by Lee Child. It is the 18th book in the Jack Reacher book series. The book and movie are about Jack Reacher sets out to go to DC to see the officer he talked to on the phone. He was wanting to take her out to dinner. The officer is head of the unit he used to work at. When he gets there, he finds out that she had been replaced by another officer. This new officer tells him that Susan was locked up for taking a bribe. The new officer also tells Jack that he is restated to the military and he has two charges against him. Those charges ended up being false charges. The bribe charge was also false. Jack and Susan do some crimes for a good reason so they can find out the truth. In the end, the bad guys kill themselves and the false charges are dropped.

There were some differences between the book and movie. Jack meets Sam at a diner in the book. The end of the book they find in an opium house in New Orleans.

I still don’t like Tom Cruise. And yes, Jack Reacher is supposed to be taller. In two weeks, I’m watching Children of Men.

Thirteen Reasons Why

I finished listening to Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. I wanted to read/listen to the book before watching the new show on Netflix. I will be watching the first episode on Friday. I have heard

I have heard alot about this book, but I thought it wasn’t the book for me. But since they are making a tv show about it, I decided to read it. This book is great and it really affected me. I was bullied in school. I think her experience was worse than mine. (I know it’s a fictional book.) I did have suicidal thoughts, but I never attempted on it because of my best friend. I wouldn’t want to leave her behind. This book is very sad, but all I can say is wow. Thirteen Reasons Why is about a teenage boy named Clay Jensen who gets a package in the mail of cassette tapes. The package has no return address. Curious, he listens to one. The tapes are made by a girl named Hannah Baker. She had committed suicide and the tapes were her reasons why. Clay was in love with her. After listening to the book, I wonder what happens next. I just looked up and Netflix is going to make another season of the show. I’m now listening to The Alexandra Link by Steve Berry.

Echo 3: The Dialectic of Agony

Over the weekend, while I was sick, I finished reading Echo 3: The Dialectic of Agony by Kent Wayne. I had read Echo 1 & 2 and bought Echo 3 a long time ago but I never got around to reading it until now. Echo 1 & 2 were great.

Warning: there is a cliffhanger ending, but the ending was happy. Kent Wayne had said on his website that there were some magical parts in Echo 3. At first, it was kinda far out there, but after getting used to it and seeing in my mind I really enjoyed the book. I can’t wait for Echo 4.

Anyway, Echo 1, 2, and 3 are of a guy named Kischan Atriya. He lives on a planet like Earth, but it is called Echo. He is part of a military force. In Echo 1, he is trained to fight by a woman named Chrysalis Verus. She heals him with a magical power. In Echo 3, Chrysalis Verus is running for her life in the desert. Atriya is badly hurt from the recent battle. He ends up having dreams connected to Verus. He saves her life in one dream, and she saves his life later on.

After reading Echo 3, I listened to 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher. I’ll post about that book in a few minutes.

You can find the Echo books on Kent Wayne’s website: https://dirtyscifibuddha.com/
He has funny ads to advertise the books.

Idiocracy

Yesterday I watched Idiocracy. I had heard a lot about the movie and kept wanting to see it, but I kept forgetting the name of it. I read a blog post on what movies are going to be like Trump presidency and Idiocracy was on that list. So I decided to finally see the movie. It has Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolph, Dax Shepard, Terry Crews, Anthony ‘Citric’ Campos, and David Herman in it.

Idiocracy is about a guy named Joe Bauers. He is in the military. He is asked to do a top secret mission. He is asked to be frozen for one year. They also asked a prostitute to do the mission. The man over the project gets arrested for being part of the prostitution ring. So the prostitute and Joe wakes up 500 years later where everyone is stupid. Joe really wanted to go home back to the correct era, but he later decides to stay. My mother says this is a guy movie and a movie to get high on. No, I didn’t laugh. I think it’s sad. Most likely that will be

My mother says this is a guy movie and a movie to get high on. No, I didn’t laugh. I think it’s sad. Most likely that will be like in the future. The Disney movie Wall-E also shows what the future would be like. Tomorrow I’m watching Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
