I am a lifelong avid reader with a passionate love for a good story, be it fiction on nonfiction.

A Quiet Place II: my review.

After a year’s wait, A QUIET PLACE II has arrived, the sequel to the unexpected 2018 hit about an alien invasion of Earth, and the desperate struggle of a family to survive in its aftermath. One reason why the original succeeded was the spin director, writer, and star, John Krasinski, put on this long standing WAR OF THE WORLDS story trope: the invaders are fearsome killing machines without eyes, Read more of this blog post »
