Mike's Recent Reviews

When Ben arrives at his hotel provided by a business trip, his desire for hiking overtakes his down time. Discovering a mountain trail secluded behind the inn, Ben eventually gets lost with no signal available and unrecognizable paths. This begins a downward spiral into many psychedelic type Brothers Grimm twisted fairy tales. The author Drew Magary brings the reader face to face with morbid Aesops Fable twists as the main character falls into his own tormented rabbit hole. Recommendation: the reader should bring bread crumbs in order to find their way back home safely from this novel built with uneven slopes and odd rock formations.
 
 
 
 
The Summer That Melted Everything by Tiffany Daniel takes place in 1984 and is centered around a young 13 year old boy. The boy's father decides to place an ad in the local newspaper inviting the devil to visit their small town of Breathed, Ohio. A stranger then appears and begins to lower a fog of intrigue upon the community. McDaniel uses pop culture references and focused satanic fear from the 80's as a stage and presence when the devil decides to accept the odd invitation in the form of innocent bliss. Instead of diving into a pool to cool off this hot season, try diving into this great summer read!
