Chimera Review of Ball Lightning by Cixin Liu

The book has a slow start and it can drag a bit if you are not interested in a science lesson. Its slow moving until the final few chapters when very big things happen have fast. The characters are mostly developed, though some leave much to be desired. This book describes PTSD and how people deal with it in a variety of ways. It also details how different cultures, personalities and personas deal with war and the aftermath of it. The line between intelligence and madness is blurred.  Leave a comment about how you enjoyed the book, and why you rated the book the way you did. How did this book make you feel?

Chimera Review of The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski

Did you catch “The Witcher” on Netflix in December 2019? This book is part of the series that that show is based on. Starting in the middle of the story this is a book when you have to pay attention. Good world building and character development this has hints of fairy tale retelling, magic explanation and magical creatures both good and bad. This was a well told story that comes together at the culmination and makes your ready to continue the journey with the main character.
