Hunted Chapter 22
I’ve often wondered why PCK spends so much time with redundant dialogue. While I can speculate that it’s because of filler, I’ve actually dared ask myself if maybe there’s a different reason. What if PCK is afraid to explore Zoey’s … Continue reading

Hunted Chapter 12
I’ll say this for “hunted”. At least something remotely interesting is happening before the halfway mark. Usually, PCK waits until they’ve wrung out all the drama they can until the last three chapters. But I’m pretty sure the appearance of … Continue reading

Untamed Chapter 11
One of the odd things that you have to worry about in a story is the passage of time. Not the time it takes to read the story but the flow of time around the characters. See, people will suspend … Continue reading

Keeping It Real Chapter 25
Only one more chapter after this and we’re done. And once this is over, I seriously doubt I’m not sure I’m ever going to return to Robson’s world. As rich as it is with bad writing, it’s too confusing. Some … Continue reading

Keeping It Real Chapter 20
So, while Lila is getting marched to her holding cell or a city bus or wherever the elves are taking her, she starts asking Barry questions. Because the best time to exposit is right before you’re about to get killed … Continue reading
Keeping It Real Chapter 9
So some kind voice Lila is familiar with asks her to let go. She can’t because of her battle system, according to a second voice. Voice two says he’ll have to purge the program and debug it again. Apparently Lila’s … Continue reading

Keeping It Real Chapter 3
So I have to wonder how humans managed to create massively advanced technology in this. Especially considering that everyone lost all the records of 2015 and then the names of major cities. They must have forgotten history too because they … Continue reading
Marked Chapter 3
I’ll say this. If PCK’s goal was to make me hate Zoey right off, they’ve done an admirable job. She’s a maudlin teen that’s extremely spoiled who complains about her home life which isn’t bad at all. If she were … Continue reading

Eldest Chapter 5 & 6
This is going way better than the last book. I feel like I’m making progress and it’s only three recaps in. I’m pumped. I’m psyched. I’m so not ready to sit through the dullest dialogue ever. These chapters are called … Continue reading

Eldest Chapters 3 & 4
Just in case you thought Chris got any better, let me destroy that hope right away. See, in the first chapter Eragon is wandering over the battlefield and surveying the carnage. He sees a tooth on the ground, picks it … Continue reading
