7. This is one of our favorite questions. How many stars would you give COLD FIRE, and why.

When I read this book the first time, I gave it a healthy and hearty 5 stars, When I read it a second time, I found it a lot different in my reading, but I still give it a healthy 5 stars.

Chelsea | 562 comments 3 stars because there were some parts that I didn't enjoy reading and some parts that I couldn't see how anyone would know unless it was the author ...like How Holly figured out the dual personality thing. I wouldn't have been able to put that together. But it was a better answer than aliens!

Cindy | 522 comments I gave it 3 stars too. I liked it, but I thought a lot of things came out of left field. Has anyone read the "Odd Thomas" books by Koontz? They are similar - ie, a guy with psychic ability tries to help people - but they are lighter.

Chelsea | 562 comments Cindy, good to know with Odd Thomas! I agree about stuff coming out of no where. I think that's why it's hard to answer questions from the beginning because it doesn't quite fit perfectly.

When I was looking for a book to choose, I went back about 5 years and read all my reviews from then till current. I also wanted to pick something that was a little different or not traditional and had CLEAN language. This book seemed to meet all the criteria of the time. When I read it a second time, it was a little different than I remembered it, but I still like/liked it. And Cindy, the Odd Thomas books are entertaining too. I already have my next book picked----Darlene, as you can see, we all don't hit home runs the first time. Looking forward to having all of you back in the fold.
