The Impossible Fortress - Book Review

I really enjoyed The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak. The story is based around the same time that I grew up, so I appreciated and recognized lots of the historical details and setting in the story. Plus, I like technology and games and programming, so the story was fun to read and unique. If there is a negative part, I would say it is the swearing in the dialogue. I realize this is probably pretty accurate for some teenagers, but I know I didn't talk like this. So, at times, it was awkward to imagine young kids saying some pretty disgusting things. But, again, overall, I really liked the story. I hope to read more about Billy and Mary. Finally, it is pretty cool that the author worked with a team to create a real version of the game talked about in the story.

A Nice Review for Bloated Goat

Just tooting my own horn here. Bloated Goat received a nice 5-star review on Amazon from a reader. Tanya says, "This guy has talent! Holy cow, I was laughing so hard I cried & my tummy was aching. I loved every page of this book. Interesting story and great laughs! Only took about an hour or so to read."

So if you haven't read Bloated Goat yet, give it a go. It is available in Kindle and Paperback versions on Amazon.com.

Time Traveling with a Hamster

Time Traveling with a Hamster is a good book. I just finished reading it. I enjoyed the character development and plot. It had an interesting take on time travel and kept things moving along at a good clip. Its one of those weird books that is over 400 pages long, but when I was done, I thought that it was way shorter. So, the pages fly by and the chapters are short, if that appeals to you. I would recommend giving this book a chance.
