Quite a lot happens in this first book: Nine Princes in Amber. We're introduced, through Corwin, to the surviving members of his, often described, "Machiavellian" family. Much is lost but there is so much more to gain... in Amber.

The geek in me was very tickled to see the author of my first book of the year (Phillip K. Dick) mentioned by a character in my second book of the year! Also, I think I may have just found a mistake: The main character just made a pledge in her journal using her sister's name instead of her own.

Not that far in, but I'm liking it. The journal entry style works. I just wish I had a way to keep up with all of the authors and book titles mentioned by the main character, that wouldn't slow me down. Maybe someone in Googleland has made a list. Must go check.....

Down to the nitty gritty and still not sure how this will end. The truth is starting to come out, little by little..nothing unexpected except for the reactions to it all.

So I'm already a day, possibly two, behind on my 2013 challenge. I knew I should have stared last Sunday, but I wanted to start on the first. Oh well. Hopefully I'll be able to make up the time sooner than later.

"the black" **Cringe** The person in question isn't referred to as "the black man" or even "the black kid " (he was a teenager), just "the black" and its driving me nuts!!!! They've referred to him as "the black" at least 3 times now in less than one page... Oh wait... we have a "that black boy" **sigh**

In a word, this story, so far, is bizarre... The blurb on the back vs what's happening in the book seem to contradict each other, and I have no idea where this story is going.

What an oddly entertaining book. So far its just an average man, on an average day, starting a new, average job... Nothing special, yet somehow the writer manages to suck you in.

Nyssa is reading Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography
I've decided to listen to my very first audio book. A freebie through Amazon's "KSO" program. I'm 20 minutes in, the length of the first chapter, out of 9hrs 11mins per the "cover page"; there are 20 chapters in total.

Its an interesting experience... one that seems to lend itself to an autobiography. I'm not sure how I would feel if I were listening to a work of fiction. Rob Lowe is narrting it himself.

Question is...

Can he...they ever be happy?
What happens with the rest of the crew?
Will J & T reconnect as father and son?
When will they learn about L?
When will their numbers increase...and what about the Chosen?

No words for the emotions going on with this book. Just hoping everyone comes out of it in one piece...

The pain...the loss... the suffering. I forgot how much they go through, and how much this story hurts.

Oh Zsadist! There are no words.

Then there's John... I love John. Then again ,there was something I instantly liked about his "father" too so I'm not surprised.
I remember some of his story but I wonder if he and Zsadist will become friends....

Bella & Zsadist (& Phury), aka, Beauty & the Beast (& brother).

Heavy story so far. Not for the faint of heart.

Anticipation! I'm remembering many of the "whats" but none of the "whens", which is surprisingly maddening!

Got a few pages in tonight...yay. This picks up 3 months later. According to the blurb this will be Rhage's story, however it seems it will concentrate on one or two of the others as well.

I think I'm going to have to try and finish this today! Seems I remember a lot of the overarching story lines but none of the specifics. I love it when an old book becomes new again!

The first chapter sucked me in, so I just kept going. Although it was definitely written for the young, it seems to be enjoyable by the "young at heart". My only complaint, so far, was the many chapters of everyone else knowing things the protagonist doesn't know, even though he really should have been told, and preferably before having to run/fight for his life. I hate that in any story.

"The Fanatic" - Excellent sequel to the novellette"From the Highlands", found in Changer of Worlds (Worlds of Honor - Anthology #3). We are reacquainted with a very different Victor than we saw before.
