“September 1, 1939” By W.H. Auden Review

“September 1, 1939” is a poem by W. H. Auden written on the occasion of the outbreak of World War II.

Another poem which didn’t go well but it should because I love reading about WW2 which this poem is about it.

The plot was okay but again it didn’t go well with me because I just couldn’t go well with me. But it was interesting. 

The writing style was okay but it could have been better in way. 

I give this poem 2 / 5

“Werewolf” By Ed And Lorraine Warren Review

The legend of the werewolf is as old as man himself. From Ed and Lorraine Warren, the world’s most famous demonologists, comes perhaps their most incredible and horrifying case: the true story of William Ramsey, whose bizarre seizures terrified the English town of Southend-on-Sea. Believing Ramsey to be a victim of demonic possession, the Warrens arranged for the rite of exorcism to be performed. Not since the exorcist shocked the nation has there been such a such a horrifying account of a supernatural battle between good and evil within the soul of one human. 

So this was book written by none other than Ed and Lorraine Warren. Frankly I didn’t know about this case until I picked up this book. Ive watched all the movies in the Ed and Lorraine Warren Cinematic Universe and this book is a nice little additional resource to the cinematic universe of Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Ive mention it before on this website that I’m a huge skeptic so I don’t believe that the stuff which is written in this book is real and that it happen. I just treated it like a good horror story as it should be treated.

Im gonna believe in demons, ghosts etc when I see them with my own eyes without being under the influence of anything. Until then the Cinematic Universe of Ed and Lorraine Warren will just be for me good horror stories for horror movies.

The writing style in this one was super incredible, it really shows that Ed and Lorraine Warren were good writers and good story tellers if you will. 

When it comes to the highlight of this book which was the exorcism of William Ramsey then it was super short which really disappointed me because it could have been longer. 

However when it comes to William Ramsey then he felt more like he had schizophrenia not that he was possessed by a animal spirit or whatever you want to call it.

I give this book 2 / 5

“Booth” By C.C. Colbert + Tanitoc Review

The United States has become violently polarized. Political fanaticism divides an embittered populace. A recently elected President–an energizing symbol of change for some, and a harbinger of the downfall of America for others–stands at the center of the turmoil. It is 1865, and John Wilkes Booth is about to assassinate the President of the United States.

I gotta admit that it was pretty good but it didn’t engage me so that might be the reason behind the low rating. 

One of the major problems with this comic was the art style which made it very difficult to tell characters apart because they looked so damn similar to each other. And this made it very difficult for me to fully follow the story and the plot because I couldn’t really tell the characters apart. 

However I need to give the concept behind his comic points. Because it had a very unique take on the end of the Civil War. 

The characters here also felt very dry if you will. Because they felt like silly comic book characters.

I give this Comics 2 / 5

“Why We Want You To Be Rich: Two Men, One Message” By Donald J. Trump And Robert T. Kiyosaki Review

The world is facing many challenges and one of them is financial. The entitlement mentality is epidemic, creating people who expect their countries, employers, or families to take care of them. Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki, both successful businessmen, are natural teachers and have joined forces to address these challenges. They believe you cannot solve money problems with money. You can only solve money problems with financial education. Trump and Kiyosaki want to teach you to be rich.

I gotta say that this book disappointed me because I’ve had high expectations for this one.  Ive read Robert T. Kiyosaki’s books in the past and I’ve read  Donald J. Trump’s books in the past and I’ve liked theirs books so that’s why I’ve had high expectations for this one which it didn’t live up to.

To be honest here this book repeats the same things which are mentioned in “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki and “Trump: The Art of the Deal” By Donald J. Trump. This book just felt like an extended version of these two books put together without adding anything new.

This book also repeats the same things over and over again. And it seems like Robert T. Kiyosaki is trying to flex his accomplishments in this book by constantly saying how many copies of “Rich Dad Poor Dad” he had sold, that he created board game and that he got to work and meet Donald J Trump. These two things really annoyed me a lot.

The writing style here was the best thing in this book because it is interesting and enjoyable. The writing style to Robert T. Kiyosaki really shows that he is an amazing story teller if nothing more. But when it comes to the writing style to Donald J Trump then all he really did in this book was to agree with what Robert T. Kiyosaki have written in the book without actually adding anything useful expect of the fact that he was bragging about how dope his life is.

However this book will be amazing for you, if you haven’t read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki and “Trump: The Art of the Deal” By Donald J. Trump before. 

I give this book 2 / 5

“The Invisible Man” By H.G. Wells Review

The story concerns the life and death of a scientist named Griffin who has gone mad. Having learned how to make himself invisible, Griffin begins to use his invisibility for nefarious purposes, including murder.

I had high expectations for this one, and yet again a book didn’t live up to these expectations which is sad.

This book had the potential to be much better than it actually was but it didn’t use that potential which it could have. Which is sad to see. 

The writing style in this book was amazing but it sometimes became too hard to understand which really throw me away sometimes and really took the wind and fun away from it. 

The way the story was told in was just super boring and I really had hard time focusing on this story. Which is sad because if H.G Wells have chosen a little bit different angle from which he should tell the story from, then this book could have killed it and got the full score everywhere. 

What I’m trying to say here is that this book has a very interesting premise but not such interesting execution.

When the main character was explaining how he became invisible make it seem like invisibility is a very easy thing to achieve. 

I give this book 2 / 5

“Diary of a Murderer: And Other Stories” By Kim Young-ha Review

Diary of a Murderer captivates and provokes in equal measure, exploring what it means to be on the edge—between life and death, good and evil. In the titular novella, a former serial killer suffering from memory loss sets his sights on one final target: his daughter’s boyfriend, who he suspects is also a serial killer. In other stories we witness an affair between two childhood friends that questions the limits of loyalty and love; a family’s disintegration after a baby son is kidnapped and recovered years later; and a wild, erotic ride about pursuing creativity at the expense of everything else.

I gotta admit that this book was the first book I’ve read which as written by a Korean Author. 

There are 4 short stories in this book named “Diary of a murder”, “the origin of life”, “missing child” and the last one is “the writer”. All 4 for these short stories were sort of thriller / mystery stories. But to be fully honest with you guys the only good short story in this book was the first one named “Diary of a murder” and the rest of the stories felt like just a starch to make the book longer. 

The writing style was okay for the most part but there were a lots of times where the writing style could be improved like a lot. And it was clear that these short stories were written by a person who didn’t write a lot of stories before. 

The plots in all these 4 short stories were good enough as when it comes to the book as a whole. But “Diary of a murder” was the best short story in this book because it was very unique because it is a short story about a serial killer how gets dementia. But the rest of the short story just feels like the most generic mystery short stories which you can possible find.

I give this book 2 / 5

“The Long Take” By Robin Robertson Review

Walker, a young Canadian recently demobilised after war and his active service in the Normandy landings and subsequent European operations. Suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, and unable to face a return to his family home in rural Nova Scotia, he goes in search of freedom, change, anonymity and repair. We follow Walker through a sequence of poems as he moves through post-war American cities of New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

This book is a collection of poems. And as some of you might know I’m not the biggest fan of poems which might be the main reason why I’ve rated this book so low as I’ve did. 

Most of the poems in this book were kind of boring and uninteresting but there were some poems which were interesting and fun to read.

The writing style was okay but nothing to talk about. Because the writing style was the generic writing style which you can see in most poems. 

Some poems are long and some poems are short in this book which might give a bigger picture of this book. 

I give this book 2 / 5

“Because I Could Not Stop for Death” By Emily Dickinson Review

So This one was not that great but it was okay. I didn’t have expectations for this because the past poems by Emily Dickinson didn’t really work for me. But it was okay for the most part. 

The plot in this one was good but it could have been better if it was written in a different way. The plot was amazing but the way it was told made it to a generic plot which of course is about death and how awful life is.

The writing style was not great. But that’s just me I guess. 

I enjoyed this poem for the most part but I feel like it could have been better than it was.

I give this poem 2 / 5

“Cabin Fever” By Jeff Kinney Review

Greg Heffley is in big trouble. School property has been damaged, and Greg is the prime suspect. But the crazy thing is, he’s innocent. Or at least sort of. The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise blizzard hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors. Greg knows that when the snow melts he’s going to have to face the music, but could any punishment be worse than being stuck inside with your family for the holidays?

I gotta say that I was a big fan of the 3 first book in this series when they came out, and back then I was like 9 years old. And I the first book in this series is the first book I remember reading without needing to read it for school. 

Since I’ve read the first 3 book in this series as an idiot kid I’ve decided to re-read the books I’ve already read in this series and read the rest of this series. Which will take some time because I’ve also started the twilight series and Harry Potter series and I have to finish a song of ice and fire series and the Witcher series. So this series is pretty far down on the list of books I want to read this year. 

The children’s genre isn’t something I’m reading now while being 19 years old, and I didn’t read any book meant for kids for at 10 years. And this book is the definition for a book meant for kids in like the middle school level. But I kind of enjoyed it a little bit but most of it was because of the nostalgia thing to this book series. However this type of book isn’t my vibe, and I try to avoid at all costs books like this one.

The writing style is okay when you look at this book from the perspective of middle grade child who is reading this series for the first time without any hobbit or harry potter reading experience from the past. 

While reading this book I was bored out of my mind and I couldn’t focus on it because my brain and my attention wasn’t having it when it came to reading this book. 

The plot itself was okay for a book meant for. Middle grade kids but it wasn’t nothing to advanced or likeable reading it as an adult.

I give this book 2 / 5

“Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain” By Charles R. Cross Review

Heavier Than Heaven traces Kurt Cobain’s life from his early days in a double-wide trailer outside of Aberdeen, Washington, to his rise to fame, fortune, and the adulation of a generation.

You might not know that but I’m a fan of Nirvana so this book was a must read for me. So when I saw this book at the bookstore I knew that I needed to read this book. 

For the most part it was a decent book, but there was couple of parts which was boring and the book would be much better if these parts were cut short of they were not in the book.

The author does a pretty decent job at putting together Kurt Cobains’ life and his quick rise to fame. So I need to give the author point for that.

The writing style could be much better. I lot couple of biographies and this one is far from them because of the writing style was poor. 

The last chapter was pretty fucked up (excuse my language if you got offended here). I don’t want to spoil anything for people who haven’t read this book yet.

This book feels like Courtney Love approved versions of “actual events” which really made me pretty angry. Because I picked up this book to read about Kurt Cobain and his life and not read Courtney Love’s version of Kurt Cobain.

However this book gives us couple of cool facts about Kurt Cobain and his life which I didn’t know about, so of course I needed to give this books points for that. 

I give this book 2 / 5
