The Doom That Came to the Coffee Shop by Mark Teppo

Filed under: Horror — Tags: — Randolph @ 7:44 am

This is a choose-your-own-adventure book, it is a training exercise for the Night Office, an organization that fights otherworldly and extra-dimensional monsters. This is a training exercise. In this exercise, the reader is transported to a coffee shop where they are to identify an existential threat to humanity.

You will die, maybe you will walk away. But can you survive the mission? I found the adventure fun, playing it several times to explore different paths through the book. It can be run through in about 15 minutes to complete most paths. It will still get read from time to time. Now I need to get another book in the series, this is the cheapest and smallest so I anticipate more complex stories.

The Cold Dish by Craig Johnson

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — Randolph @ 11:03 am

This is the first book in the Longmire mystery series and serves as an introduction to the main characters. The mystery revolves around a man who was murdered and left in the wilderness. Clues relate to the rape of a mentally slow girl and indian artifacts.

I found this mystery only moderately interesting and the writing adequate, if this had been the first of the series I had read I would not have placed a lot of value on reading others. The books seems to focus on introducing characters and the setting.
