Death by Books

Like you (I assume) I like books. I used to read fantasy exclusively, but these days I've branched out to pick up the occasional mystery, YA or steampunk novel. I also love to read about the art of writing and use that to improve my skills in my own work.

Snow Day

Snow Day - Dan Maurer I guess I'm going to have to change my "I hate first person PoV" description of myself. This is the third story I've read in the last two weeks that is first person, and I loved it.

This is Mr. Maurer's first "book" - actually it's a novella due to it's short length, but I will be reading more of his works when they come out. It starts out as a murder mystery, cuts to a slice of life tale about about a ten-year-old growing up in the 1970's and then turns into one of the coolest "chase" scenes ever with a massive fight for survival. There's a twist at the end that I admittedly saw coming, but it was written well enough that it was still quite creepy.

I'm giving this five stars - I hated to put it down to go to bed.
