In the last 9 days, I was lucky to indulge with no worries, and lots of books. I packed too many books, 9 in total and extras on Kindle, just in case I’d ran out of them during the holidays. The statistics says I read 3556 pages or 8 books, averaging 445 pages per book or almost 1 book per day. Standing out were Peter James’s Perfect People and Simon Toyne’s Sanctus trilogy.
I’ve read James before, and I like his style, yet I was still surprised with the Perfect People. It reads really nicely, there’s enough developments throughout the book to keep you going, and then there’s the end. The main subject of the story are ”designer babies”, a controversial topic in medicine and research, and reaching the end, it really gives you something to think about. There’s a short review of the books on Fossicker Books.
Sanctus trilogy wasn’t on my reading list for this holidays, but as my boyfriend brought them along, and enjoyed the first book of the trilogy, it was soon my turn to give it a try. Sanctus, the first book, can be read as a single book, as it has a sufficient ending, yet leaves you to imagination of how the story might continue. The second book, The Key, and the third book, The Tower are continuing the plot from the Sanctus, and have a bit more of wider story, yet they’re still good reads. Overall, as a trilogy, this was somenthing I enjoyed reading, and would recommend it to anyone interested in this genre.
