Keeping It Real Chapter 16
I don’t know if my confusion comes across in these recaps. I’ve been trying to boil the plot down to its most basic to cut down on that fever dream subreality that this book has to it but even then … Continue reading

Inheritance Chapter 58
This chapter is called “the city of sorrows”. That’s the city where hack authors go to write. It’s nothing but one giant Starbucks illuminated by the soft glow of laptop screens and lid logos. The stench of overpriced coffee never … Continue reading

Inheritance Chapter 7
This chapter is called “what is a man”. Well, as the Count once famously told a Belmont “a miserable little pile of secrets”. In this chapter we rejoin Roran again. And because Chris has never learned how to “hook” readers, … Continue reading

Maximum Ride Chapters 29 & 30

Brisingr Chapters 23 & 24

Brisingr Chapters 7 & 8

Eldest Chapter 71
This last chapter is called ‘reunion’. I like how Chris jam packed all these pointless details in the past two chapters. Things he should have brought up earlier rather than vomiting them all over us. More stupid reveals happened than … Continue reading

Eldest Chapters 35 & 36
These chapters are called ‘a maze of opposition’ and ‘hanging by a thread’. Great, yet another character. Now we’re with Nasuada. No doubt we’ll sit around as she tells the Varden to stay put and keep hiding. ‘Remember, absolutely nothing … Continue reading
