Fear of Flying

Erica Jong

This book was recommended as one worth reading. In fact, it was on the 100 Must Reads for Women. Having been unable to finish the book, I disagree with the recommendation.

I know it is 40 years old, and I tried to keep that in mind. I did find it very dated, but that wasn't the main issue.

I started to really loathe Isadora. 

As Adrian says insightfully, "You and Bennett do seem to whine an awful lot."

Clean

Alex Hughes

I received a review copy from the author in exchange for a fair review.

I used to work for the Telepath's Guild before they kicked me out for a drug habit that wasn't entirely my fault. Now I work for the cops, helping Homicide Detective Isabella Cherabino put killers behind bars.

My ability to get inside the twisted minds of suspects makes me the best interrogator in the department. But the normals keep me on a short leash. When the Tech Wars ripped the world apart, the Guild stepped up to save it. But they had to get scary to do it--real scary.

Now the cops don't trust the telepaths, the Guild doesn't trust me, a serial killer is stalking the city--and I'm aching for a fix. But I need to solve this case. Fast. I've just had a vision of the future: I'm the next to die.

I have to admit, in the beginning I was not sure if I was going to like this book. It was a little harder for me to get into it. This is a newer genre for me.

But once I got into it, I just didn't want to stop reading it.

I really started to like this guy. Adam. The flawed, reluctant protagonist. I have always been a fan of the underdog.

I am now eager to read Payoff and then Sharp.
