It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover

Synopsis:

SOMETIMES THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU IS THE ONE WHO HURTS YOU THE MOST

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up – she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily, but Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan – her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

My impressions:

This book would be good if it wasn’t so damn predictable.

You get Lily Blossom Bloom,  a girl whose daddy dearest was a sadist, using her mom as a punchbag whenever something went wrong. Lily grows up just fine and meets the divine Ryle Kincaid, a perfect husband candidate. Ryle is tall, handsome and rich, on his way to become a very good neurosurgeon. He is intelligent and has a great sense of humour.  Are you hearing that dum-dum-dum ditty in the background? If yes then you know  that Ryle will be also prone to violence *gasp*. He hits Lily for the first time when she, a bit sozzled, laughs at his clumsiness in the kitchen, right after he burned one of his precious hands. Ryle hits her for the second time when he finds the phone number of Atlas, Lily’s teen crush, hidden under the battery of her mobile phone.  Lily is pushed down the stairs and ends up with a concussion. It’s their honeymoon.

And then contrite Ryle explains. He is very good at explaining. (spoiler, highlight to read or skip) When he was a six-year-old kid he and his older brother found a loaded gun in their parents’ garage. Ryle shot his sibling and he died. It wasn’t his fault, far from it, but he’s been attending therapy sessions ever since. He’s been having issues too because, let’s face it, who wouldn’t? After that he claims he loves Lily more than any other woman he’s ever met. Isn’t it sweet? Still Atlas, also a victim of home abuse, warns Lily that she should leave Ryle while it’s not too late. What will she do? What would you do? Would you be ready to risk a marriage with a man that during any dispute might hurt you or kill you, even if not voluntarily? A man who sometimes gets so jealous that he becomes a dangerous stranger you hardly recognize? After all a surgeon knows human body like nobody else and he can be a very skillful murderer…

I won’t spoil anybody’s pleasure by telling you the rest. For me it was a bit predictable but who knows, perhaps you will be tempted to find out on your own what happened to Lily and Ryle.

Let me also said that the character of Atlas had a lot of potential but wasted it all. Such a pity.

Final verdict:

Decent novel about home abuse but nothing ground-breaking. Hello Kitty.

Ancillary Justice (Imperial Radch 01) by Ann Leckie

Synopsis:

On a remote, icy planet, the soldier known as Breq is drawing closer to completing her quest. Once, she was the Justice of Toren– a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of soldiers in the service of the Radch, the empire that conquered the galaxy. Now, an act of treachery has ripped it all away, leaving her with one fragile human body, unanswered questions, and a burning desire for vengeance.

My impressions:

The story of Breq, the last physical manifestation of the ship “Justice of Toren’s” complex AI, was compelling, especially when it came to a powerful mixture of politics and war campaigns. The mere idea behind a sentient ship which can control hundreds of human bodies called ancillaries seemed a bit creepy but after a while I warmed up to it.  After the destruction of her ship, lonely Breq, now almost incapacitated, started a quest to get answers and justice for said destruction – so far so good.

Then came the weird. The Radch empire used language with just one grammatical gender. They refer to everyone as “she”, a default pronoun so to speak (Ursula Le Guin anyone?). It is one of the main novelties of the book. Actually for some characters you’ll have to figure out and decide on your own, if a character is male or female in any given scene. I admit sometimes I had an impression the same person can be both male and female but it’s perhaps only me.

The confusion concerning sexes worked well for most of the book but it made me annoyed too, especially when Seivarden was involved. A word of explanation – Seivarden is a former  lieutenant from Justice of Toren . She (?) is two thousand years old but most of that time she spent in a cryogenic capsule, drifting unconscious through space. After that time she landed somewhere, started planet-hopping, got addicted to a drug called kef and was found, half-dead, by Breq and saved almost as an afterthought. Seivarden’s way of thinking was bland at best and irritating at worst. In my view she was easily the worst character of this book, never being able to stand on her own.

Then the plot, although engaging, started to fray. The alternating timelines (plus numerous flashbacks) were tremendously confusing because they spoke of events that didn’t interest me and omitted things I considered important. I finished the book only because I yearned for some kind of conclusion, molding One Esk and Breq. And I got one.

Final verdict:

A powerful story of an AI which once operated as hundreds of “ancillaries” — mindless human bodies linked to and controlled by it — but has been cut off from her ship. A story  which might be difficult to imagine or swallow. If you’re fond of epic space battles  this book isn’t for you. If you find an idea behind one-gender-only language idiotic be warned: the descriptions of characters don’t conform to our gender stereotypes, the effect is deliberately confusing and may be off-putting to some. Still, in my opinion, it is a book worth reading.

The Burgas Affair by Ellis Shuman

I got a complimentary copy of this one from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Product info:

It is a story which contains some reality: the terrorist attack at Burgas Airport in 2012, during which five Israeli tourists and one Bulgarian bus driver were murdered. In ‘The Burgas Affair’, the aftermath of the attack is fictional.

An Israeli data analyst and a Bulgarian detective are tracking down those responsible. The two must establish whether the terrorists were assisted by a Bulgarian crime organization, in laying the groundwork for the attack.

Shadows of the past keep interfering, which is why what was supposed to be a routine investigation turns into a nightmare. The detective’s interactions with a crime boss pursuing a vendetta against him threaten to throw him off track. At the same time, his partner’s pursuit of the terrorists and their accomplices brings up painful memories of a family tragedy.

My impressions:

The huge asset of this one was the fact that the author described Bulgaria very vividly – it was obvious at once he was there, talked with those people, drank rakija, visited local hotels and train stations and so on. Its narration had a distinct colour which I appreciated.

When it came to the main characters I have to admit they were three-dimensioned and rather complex. I  liked the fact that Boyko Stanchev was chased by shadows from his police past and also Alaya was haunted by some traumatic event. The secret of Alaya’s brother, Tomen, who hated everything Bulgarian, was also a nice addition to the plot.

What didn’t work? I might be wrong but in my very humble opinion the style could have been polished a tad more. Below I quote two passages which, I suppose, would profit from another editing session:

“She shifted her weight, resting one hand on her enlarged belly. She needed to sit down. And she had to pee. She was tired, despite her nap on the flight. She hoped their hotel-room bed would be comfortable, but that really didn’t matter. In her present state, she was capable of sleeping anywhere.”

“You’re catching up fast, Boyko. They will ask many questions. Did the bomber know that this particular bus would transport Israeli tourists? Was the bomb on the bus or under the bus? Is the bomber dead or alive? Was the bomb detonated by remote control? Did the bomber have accomplices, or did he act alone? And more important than any other question: who sent the bomber?” p.22

I was also a bit surprised by the fact how naïve and inexperienced the main characters sounded. Boyko is an experienced police detective. Alaya is an intelligent, young Jewish woman, a member of Mossad. Still, from time to time, they just sound as if they’ve never undergone any practical course or schooling in their lives. An example? Read one scene, introduced by the internal dialogue of Alaya:

“Richard Milkin was not the bomber’s real name . And, the bomber was not from Michigan after all! She understood this now, yet this was this man’s identity as he travelled round Bulgaria. And the other names were the ones used by his collaborators. ‘We should call to report this information, no matter what’ she said. ‘My phone’s battery is dead. Can I use yours?”

Hmm… wasn’t Mossad (a.k.a. HaMossad leModiʿin uleTafkidim Meyuḥadim) supposed to be the very best intelligence agency in the world? How come its member didn’t take care of her mobile while away in an foreign country on an important mission? Why it was so hard for her to assume that the suspected terrorists used false names and a set of false documents?

Final verdict:

Despite its flaws it was definitely a thriller with a lot potential and a story with great local colour. Give it one more editing and it will be completely recommendable.

Farewell, dear friend!

I am extremely sad to announce a sudden demise of my faithful pet, Jet. He was a miniature Yorkshire terrier, a pedigree, and a great dog to own: funny, intelligent, compassionate, and tender, very friendly towards both cats and dogs. Farewell, dear friend, and thank you for 13 fantastic years – I hope they were as good for you as they were for me. I miss you and I love you!

Movie review: What We Do in the Shadows (2014) directed by Taika Waititi, Jemaine Clement

This one was recommended to me by @Myk Pilgrim at Twitter. Do follow him; even though he sometimes pretends he doesn’t like you he is really a great pumpkin guy and a swell writer (I suppose) ;p.

Product info:

Four vampires—Viago (Taika Waititi), Vladislav (Jemaine Clement), Deacon (Jonathan Brugh) , and Petyr (Ben Fransham)—share a flat in the Wellington suburb. Although Viago, Vladislav, and Deacon are all several centuries old, they have retained normal human appearances. The 8,000-year-old Petyr, however, resembles Nosferatu and acts more savagely than the younger vampires. He also sleeps in a stone coffin because he is more familiar with stone than with wood.

Each night, Viago , Vladislav, and Deacon prowl the streets of Wellington searching for people to kill. It’s not an easy task. Their clothes make them look dubious so they are rarely invited inside clubs. They must stay in the flat during the day to avoid sunlight—which is lethal to vampires—therefore they have not adapted to 21st-century life. Deacon has a human servant (familiar)—Jackie. She is a married mother of two, frustrated that Deacon will not turn her into a vampire even if she pronounces herself more than ready. Jackie thinks it is extremely unjust and sexist – if she was a man she would have been bitten ages ago.

One night Jackie leads her ex-boyfriend Nick and her former school nemesis to the vampire’s flat so they can drink their blood; the woman is killed but Nick escapes; as he leaves the flat, Petyr attacks him and later turns Nick into a vampire. Two months later the vampires accept Nick into their group and also bond with his human friend Stu, a computer programmer who shows them how to use modern technology. That will change the entire household in an unpredictable manner. Yes, there will be blood.

My impressions:

It was a cheap indie production but also a great vampire comedy, as anti-Twilight as it is actually possible. I’ve seen it named ‘Mockumentary’. It is a very apt term. You get a ‘family’ of four guys with fangs who quarrel, have to do dishes, and keep up with ever-changing technology while avoiding conflicts with a rival gang, that of werewolves.

Some scenes were so funny that I couldn’t restrain myself from giggling all the time; I mean here especially those featuring Stu, the Bella Swan of the story. Stu (not an accidental choice of name, male Mary-Sues are often called Gary-Stu) is an ordinary guy with ordinary looks and ordinary IT job but somehow our four vampires can’t get enough of him. He teaches them basic computer skills while they admire his rosy cheeks and kind character. Stu is swell, Stu is nice, Stu is anything an old-fashioned, European vampire can dream of and yet none of the fanged gents dares to bite him and make him theirs. Stu is simply untouchable. And so lovely. ;p Speak about insta-love and a bromance.

Another great, humoristic twist: you watch the group’s frustrated attempts at entering several clubs nobody wants to invite them into. Without invitation, they can’t enter them,  a familiar vampire trope. After I heard Clement’s Vladislav protesting in the background while Waititi’s Viago skittishly explains through voiceover narration why his friends always wind up at “the hottest vampire nightclub” (ie: one that is always empty) I was laughing like mad. So simple. So funny. So incisive.

Last but not least: the chemistry between the actors was simply fantastic, something which  can’t be overstated as it often doesn’t work so well even in professional, big-money productions.  This is especially true of scenes where Viago and the gang fight in the air, flying above the ground and hissing at each other, like airborne feral cats. If only Twilight movies were half that funny…

Final verdict:

If you haven’t seen this one and you are looking for a Halloween-themed comedy, look no further; you won’t regret watching this jewel with fangs. Highly recommended.

Movie review: Don’t Knock Twice (2017) directed by Caradog James

Product info:

Jess (Katee Sackhoff) used to be a drug addict and a punk but she’s cleaned up her act. Now she is a rich and successful sculptor married happily to equally rich banker. As she is redecorating her huge new villa she decides to retrieve the custody of her teenage daughter, Chloe (Lucy Boynton). Chloe was clearly a mistake from her turbulent past but not every mistake is easy to mend. The girl is hardly impressed by her glamorous mum – after all she had left her behind when she needed her most. The family problem is additionally complicated by a certain red-haired witch who wants to kidnap Chloe like she’d already done with her best buddy, Dan. Both kids used to be very unkind to her right before she committed a suicide… and then they dared come to her front door and knock twice even if they knew it was a stupid thing to do…

My impressions:

It was a modest production but not entirely bad for a horror. Horrors and thrillers aren’t supposed to be masterpieces, right? So, we get here a big, luxurious mansion, two women with problems left to their own devices, and an evil witch – what premise can be simpler? No bloodbath, just hints here and there and a creepy ghost of a woman who committed suicide. Plus a demon.

I liked the fact that the character of the witch was a tad more complex than usual – there was more to her than met the eyes. A mother-daughter dynamics was also rather refreshing; usually in such stories the main protagonist is an orphan or he/she looks for their parents; here we have a repentant mother and a daughter who is clearly scared but still unwilling to trust the very person she should have trusted the most. The ending came with a huge twist, a bit too huge for my liking I have to admit. It looked as if the director hoped for the sequel very badly…

As I’ve already started complaining: after half an hour of watching I had a feeling “Don’t Knock Twice” never would go  anywhere really  interesting plot-wise. Unfortunately I was right. It seemed its creators didn’t know what to do with their characters, even those with some potential. Were they supposed to be insane? Possessed? Drugged? Just careless and stupid? Were the witches and demons real or not? Had they had any viable agenda (demons and witches that is)? It didn’t help that Jess and Chloe made decisions that were consistently ludicrous and their secondary relationships also wavered between inanity and ridiculousness.

There was one finer feature, underappreciated, unfortunately, by the director.  The demon, awoken as a result of kids’ disregard of an urban legend, needs to enter through a  closed door in order to seize its prey. Contrary to basic instincts those hoping to fend off the demon must avoid closed doors of any kind. It could have added a lot to the tense atmosphere. It didn’t because it was almost completely disregarded. Pity.

Final verdict:

A mediocre witch story but with some finer moments – watch it once if you want to indulge in ‘spooky’ atmosphere but do it at home.

Clean Sweep (Innkeeper Chronicles 01) by Ilona Andrews

Product info (from Goodreads):

On the outside, Dina Demille is the epitome of normal. She runs a quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town, owns a Shih Tzu named Beast, and is a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem should be what to serve her guests for breakfast. But Dina is…different: Her broom is a deadly weapon; her Inn is magic and thinks for itself. Meant to be a lodging for otherworldly visitors, the only permanent guest is a retired Galactic aristocrat who can’t leave the grounds because she’s responsible for the deaths of millions and someone might shoot her on sight. Under the circumstances, “normal” is a bit of a stretch for Dina.

And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night….Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved. Before long, she has to juggle dealing with the annoyingly attractive, ex-military, new neighbor, Sean Evans—an alpha-strain werewolf—and the equally arresting cosmic vampire soldier, Arland, while trying to keep her inn and its guests safe. But the enemy she’s facing is unlike anything she’s ever encountered before. It’s smart, vicious, and lethal, and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everything

My impressions:

„I was sitting in the foyer, trying to read a novel about angels and women who fell in love with them. The novel was great, but I couldn’t sink into it.”

Hmm…this quote sums up nicely almost all my thoughts on this one. Almost – so with a caveat. ‘Clean Sweep’ wasn’t exactly great but still I couldn’t sink into it. There were three reasons for that.

My first reason is the main character, Dina. Also known as Mary Sue. All the symptoms are here: her parents are missing, presumed dead, nobody knows why. Her brother is a space traveler and doesn’t keep in touch. She is all on her lonesome, she is not especially pretty and yet, and yet… she manages to draw the attention of more than one gentleman of fantastic provenience. Strange? Not in a world inhabited by Mary Sues. Speaking about the gentlemen…here we hit my reason number two.

Imagine such a scenario: a vampire (Arland) and a werewolf (Sean) meet at an inn. Both of them are extremely handsome – tall, well-muscled, with regular facial features – but each represent a different male beauty type. They don’t exactly like each other, they don’t trust each other but soon both of them start vying for the attention of their host, allegedly a simple human girl but with an array of hidden, interesting powers… rings a bell? If it doesn’t stink of ‘Twilight’ or the Sookie Stackhouse series I’ll read my mouse. The fact that the said girl owned a Shih-tzu dog helped only a tiny little bit. 

My third and the last reason: the infodumps. I know, I know, with the beginning of the series there’s always a temptation to reveal this and reveal that, show some backstory, throw in a juicy tidbit here and there etc. Still an experienced writer should know how to avoid such traps. Maybe it’s me but I think the ‘Kate Daniels’ series was narrated far more skillfully.

Final verdict:

Not the worst UF romance I’ve ever read but also nothing I would like to continue desperately any time soon. Not after the first part anyway. Meh.

Movie review: Priest (2011) directed by Scott Steward

Product info:

This post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller is set in an alternate world, ravaged by centuries of war between men and vampires. Men won or so they are said by Church officials. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany). He was the hero of the last Vampire War but now, like his comrades, lives in obscurity among other humans, doing manual labour in walled-in cities ruled by the Church.  

Anyway, when Priest’s niece, Lucy (Lily Collins), is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires the Church don’t want to help because they claimed the vampires have been completely destroyed. Desperate Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on a quest to find the girl before she is turned into a vamp slave. He is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend, a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess who possesses otherworldly fighting skills. There will be blood.

 

What I liked:

  • Vampires. They were alien, blind, scary, blood-thirsty and they never sparkled – what not to like?
  • The Church. They were fantastic black hats. What a pity they didn’t get more scenes.
  • Animated prologue. It was a slick intro into the dystopian world.
  • The action scenes. They were really well shoot and CGI effects blended smoothly with real life actors – good job!

What I didn’t like:

  • Main character. The Priest was too schematic and his backstory – too simplistic. No twists, no surprises, no fun, just Paul Bettany. I did wonder what the Church had done to him but my questions were never answered – what a waste!
  • Lucy, the kidnapped damsel in distress. She was nowhere near as good as Lucy the Dracula bride in distress and I hoped for a really kick-ass young woman. What can be said… if you want to make a decent vampire movie do read your classics, they can feature surprisingly modern, independent females.
  • The main antagonist. Black Hat, the former bosom buddy of our white hat, had no third dimension even if such a possibility lurked there somewhere. Pity!
  • Too many  dull, derivative action horror clichés in the plot.

Final verdict:

Not bad for a cartoon-based vampire movie but it could have been much better. I would recommend it for those who have enough of sparkly vamps or for fans of Paul Bettany. Watch at home, preferably after dark.

The Copper Promise (The Copper Cat 01) by Jen Williams

I got this one from beautiful and clever Melfka – thank you!

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

There are some far-fetched rumours about the caverns beneath the Citadel…

Some say the mages left their most dangerous secrets hidden there; others, that great riches are hidden there; even that gods have been imprisoned in its darkest depths.

For Lord Frith, the caverns hold the key to his vengeance. Against all the odds, he has survived torture and lived to see his home and his family taken from him … and now someone is going to pay. For Wydrin of Crosshaven and her faithful companion, Sir Sebastian Caverson, a quest to the Citadel looks like just another job. There’s the promise of gold and adventure. Who knows, they might even have a decent tale or two once they’re done.

But sometimes there is truth in rumour.

Soon this reckless trio will be the last line of defence against a hungry, restless terror that wants to tear the world apart. And they’re not even getting paid.

My impressions:

Perhaps it’s only me but, despite a lot of potential in the blurb, this one left me completely disengaged. I cared neither for any of the characters nor for the plot, I could skip entire chapters without feeling I was missing something important. I got bored for the first time after merely 50 pages, imagine that. The plot seemed just washed-out repetition of so many other high fantasy novels. The magic didn’t leave me awed and anxious for more. The blue dragoness I noticed but only as an afterthought because she was kept in the background.

Maybe it was about the characterization, very schematic, barely there, a feature which could have been ripped from a D&D campaign module. Wydrin, the Copper Cat, had neither her own agenda nor many distinctive traits apart from her ginger colouring and a moniker. Sebastian, a valiant knight by her side, seemed blander than stones of the Citadel he was breaking into. Aaron, lord Firth, apart from his prematurely white mane of hair was just another wronged aristo looking for justice and revenge. Boring like hell.

Final verdict:

A DNF and a major meh. Felt like an homage to every hacky-slashy dungeon crawler RPG I’ve ever heard about. I won’t continue the series for sure.

Movie review: The Mummy (2017) directed by Alex Kurtzman

Product info:

Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) is a soldier of fortune who plunders ancient sites for timeless artifacts and sells them to the highest bidder. When Nick and his partner come under attack in the Middle East, the ensuing battle accidentally unearths Ahmanet (Sophia Boutella), a betrayed Egyptian princess who was entombed under the desert for thousands

of years. With her powers constantly evolving, Morton must now stop the resurrected monster as she embarks on a furious rampage through the streets of London.

My impressions:

I decided to watch the newest Mummy movie just for fun. I knew it would be probably a miss but I hoped for at least about one hundred minutes of innocent entertainment. After all, London is such a scenic venue…as is Iraq.

My thoughts after 16 minutes:

Set was the Egyptian god of evil? Or god of death for that matter? Seriously, dear scriptwriters?

Mummification alive according to Hollywood: you envelop a girl with bandages, you put her inside a wooden coffin and then you close her in a sarcophagus. Yeah…

Dear Tom Cruise, if you go to Iraq and want to pretend you’re a local (i.e. an Arab) you’d better grow a solid beard, not go around with your face smooth and shaved.

‘Haram’ in Arabic means ‘forbidden’ not ‘ treasure’.

Liquid mercury deposits cannot be found in Egypt – or in the whole Africa for that matter. How come the ancient Egyptians managed to gather a whole basin of it and transport it to Mesopotamia? A stupid question, right? Of course everything they needed had been brought by the movie crew…Can you notice the pattern? My brain refused to switch off, a prerequisite of enjoying such movies especially as they feature an old-ish Tom Cruise.  Who has to be the Chosen one no matter what.

Ok, 29- 68 minutes into the movie.

If you a real Egyptologist you’ll  ignore even a seriously ill, possibly dying man as long as you can examine an unknown sarcophagus lying nearby. To prove your total commitment all Egyptian inscriptions you’ll read aloud, translating them immediately into English.

The US Army fly carton-and-plastic toys which can disintegrate without any reason.

Now one asset of this flop – the best line was delivered by Russell Crowe and it went like this: “Come on, son. Mayhem, chaos, destruction. The ladies will love us.” What a pity there were no more of these.

Ahmanet might be a kick-ass princess and  devil incarnated but still she needs a mate. Badly. A man to support her with his strong arm. By the way, when did she have time to learn proper English?

Final verdict:

If, after watching a movie, you find out you had smiled just once and had been able to watch tv simultaneously and write a review on the side, the said movie was a waste of time.
