Book Review: The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks

I’ve always thought it better to read the book after the movie, contrary to popular belief that it should be the other way around. I’ve always found watching the film first means you get to enjoy that without comparing it to the book and then by watching the book after you get to see all the parts missed out by the film in the book. 229 more words

The War of the Worlds * H.G. Wells

Every passing decade, the culture of human beings as a whole has been significantly affected by technology and science. Whether it’s something small, like the invention of automatic doors, or something enormously important, like the invention of the telegraph or the discovery of DNA, technology and science change the way we live, and how we view life, all the time. 1,302 more words

Lion by Saroo Brierly

This book was originally published under the title “A Long Way Home”.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

Book Reviews

John’s Horror Corner: Stephen King’s It (2017), a worthy re-adaptation and R-rated remake of 1990’s TV-PG Pennywise.

MY CALL:  A worthy, scarier approach to Stephen King’s book delivered with a Pennywise worthy of Curry’s original performance.  MORE MOVIES LIKE Stephen King’s It… 793 more words
