The Raven's Quill

If we're a reflection of what we read, I'm a wandering hobbit looking to get into Hogwarts school so I can locate the Moonstone and save Panem from Caroline Bingley with the help of Hercule Poirot.

A Quick Read with Heart

Nights in Rodanthe - Nicholas Sparks

Like most Nicholas Sparks books, this one begins, continues, and ends they way you would expect. No surprises, or twists. Now that I've started to read critically, I notice a lot of passive writing and redundant redundancies that could have used a heavy edit, but in spite of it all, in spite of the predictability and somewhat one-dimensional characters, the damned book still managed to get me choked up in the end. Damn you, Sparks!
