    I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Roland in the past with his gunslinger friends, I wish SK had done an entire series like that. I'm surprised you weren't a fan

    Again i'm weird, I don't care for flashbacks, Start the story from the beginning and end it, don't pull me out of the current situation.......it's a turn off

    I thought these great reads. To be honest, reading We Were One was was the reason why I chose to join the Marine Corps Infantry.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Finished Band of Brothers, and read The Old Man and the Sea again tonight. Not sure I'd want to read any more of Hemingway's work though. Not a very fluid read, to me at least. Tolkien's writing is much the same for me. Not a bad story at all, just not my style of writing.

    I find those kinds if authors I need to be able to have long reading sessions for. I have a hard time picking up and remembering well where the story left and started again.

    Found some books on my Google Book app that I didn't know I bought. Read John Grisham's "Camino Island" last night,
    and starting Dean Koontz's "Watchers" tonight.

    Watchers is supposed to be like Koontz's Opus, I haven't read it yet, but people swear by it.

    I'm 150 pages in, and it's hard to put down. I've read his Odd Thomas series as well. His writing style, and narration is easy for me to stay engrossed in the story

    The Odd Thomas series is on my tablet, just haven't got to it yet. My 1st Koontz book was Intensity, and that book really hooked me on Koontz. I will say I was expecting his other books to be as terrifying as that one, but I was let down with that assumption. but I still enjoy his writing, and he is one of my fav authors.

    Just finished Watchers: Two words: badass book! If you're a fan of Koontz, and are a dog lover, it's a must read.
    Just looked at B&N's website, and Odd Thomas didn't stop at the 4th book, so I've got to finish that series before I start a new book. (Unbenounced to me, there is 4 more books in the series)

    Since it's close to Christmas, the wife asked me not to buy anything at all. So, I dug through her huge collection of books and found this to read. After the first chapter, I realized I've read it before, but plan to finish it once again.[​IMG]
