The Collectors’ Society and The Hidden Library Reviews

So, for this review, I’m doing two books in one review. I’m doing that because for the most part, my review for the second book is the same as the first book. Anyway, you can find a synopsis for both books here. For The Collectors’ Society, there are three things that I wish were different about the book. The first thing is that I wished that the whole getting to Wonderland plotline had progressed a lot faster that it had. I mean, I get that the author had to set the beginning of the story in order for the rest of the story to make sense, such as Alice learning about 21st Century technology, but it wasn’t until the story was about half way to two-thirds done that we, as the audience, get to Wonderland. The second thing that I would change is Alice and Finn’s relationship. I thought that their relationship had been rushed. It’s not that because their relationship wasn’t well developed. It’s just that it felt like it went from 0 to 160 in no time. The third thing that I wish was different was the sex scenes. Now, keep in mind that I am not opposed to sex scenes in books, given the right context. What I mean by that is I expect sex scenes to be either implied, or in romance novels or books like Fifty Shades of Grey. I definitely did not expect the sex scenes to be described as it is to be in a book like The Collectors’ Society. Anyway, as The Hidden Library, I found it to be very interesting. It makes me want to read the next book.

Frankenstein

I was watching an episode of Whose Line Is It Anyway and of the games they played was called Weird Newscasters. Anyway, Ryan’s thing was that he was Frankenstein who was looking for a mate. When he was doing his thing, the way he did it pissed me off. The reason it pissed me off was because he portrayed the monster as being stupid. Now, in the book, the monster wasn’t stupid. He learned to talk and read. Anyway, that just pisses me off.
