Warning – do not read this graphic novel in the dark. I did not shiver from the cold as in depicted by one of the horror stories, but rather the sheer creepiness while reading. If you are sensitive to graphic imagery, this is not recommended. Despite the simple lines and blank and white shades, the imagery is vivid.
It’s hundreds of years in the future and life can be eternal through clones! Your mind stays, but your body regenerates. Six individuals have chosen this route wake up without a clue how they “died” in their last body. What could possibly go wrong as a clueless clone?
Say something nice. Indeed, as Missy would instruct I can “say something nice” about the book all about her. On a giddy Thursday at Comic-Con I hurriedly picked up a copy of “The Missy Chronicles” at the BBC booth. A couple of days later I got to meet one of the authors, Richard Dinnick and get the book signed (see below). I had yet to start to read the book but he recommended it as true delight for the Missy fan. He was being truthful, being as “The Missy Chronicles” has had me laughing every few pages.
The market slides and panic ensues. Unemployment goes up, people default on loans and the media becomes a more dreary affair than usual. In a recession and in a lesser Bear Market, the public gets scared. This book is to teach you to keep your resolve and remain unshaken in the face of what is usually viewed as adversity.
After reading “The Martian” by Andy Weir, I had been highly anticipating the release of “Artemis”. Both books take place on our close terrestrial neighbors to earth and have characters with a type of humorous pessimism. As with Wier’s prior book, “Artemis” did not disappoint in antics by the protagonist that kept me on the edge of my seat.
This sales savvy book was recommended to me by a highly knowledgeable business consultant. While I am not on the ground selling B2B, my customers are the sales executives that are in this role and their leadership. This book serves as a way to systematically attack the inevitable challenges that arise in modern selling.
“Acceptance” is the third book in the brilliant series of “The Southern Reach Trilogy”. The series takes the reader through the strange, daunting and unforgiving landscape of Area X. This is an area seemingly carved out of the world today, yet unfamiliar. Creepy animals and non-natural behavior patterns abound. The lives of those living in its shadow and under its mysterious gaze are chronicled in this story of terror.
