Meh.  After this book, I have officially given up anything that promises creepy horror style children. They always seem like they have such great ideas and promise, and they never deliver. This is my third such disappointment this year, after The Uninvited which was horrendous, and The Three.  Brood is the story of Alice and Adam Twisden, whose wealthy parents had undergone fertility treatments that eventually turned them into feral cannibals. They, like all the other children who were the offspring of these types of fertility treatments, aren’t exactly normal children. When the offspring of these fertility treatments reach puberty, some of them grow… Read more »

Today, Bry and Fry discuss their latest obsession, ‘The Girl With All The Gifts’ by M. R. Carey.   Fry: I finished this book last night and I’m still reeling from it. The ending was both disheartening and elating. A true testament to Ian Malcom’s proclamation of, “Life finds a way.” It held some elements of books in the same genre, but it offered less horror than Justin Cronin’s The Passage and less conspiracy than… Read more »

Hated it. It was a push to get through most of this book. I had to really dedicate myself and my willpower to the task. Unfortunate, because there were so many glowing reviews for this book. Guess I’m the odd duck. If you enjoy long, tedious descriptions of jury rigged science, I suppose this book is for you. I couldn’t handle it after awhile. Even when there reached a point where we weren’t forever in Watney’s head, it only held appeal for a little bit. This book is dull, despite that Mark Watney has everything going wrong for him and… Read more »
