Friday Mini Reviews Audio Edition #48: Jim Butcher, John Green & David Levithan


Small Favor by Jim Butcher (Harry Dresden #10)

bought on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads
THE New York Times Bestseller

Harry Dresden's life finally seems to be calming down -- until a shadow from the past returns. Mab, monarch of the Sidhe Winter Court, calls in an old favor from Harry -- one small favor that will trap him between a nightmarish foe and an equally deadly ally, and that will strain his skills -- and loyalties -- to their very limits.

Another fun,  hectic ride from Harry and his friends with some interesting mythology thrown in.  I keep enjoying Butcher's imagination, and I especially appreciate Denarians. Recommended.

 Ещё одно весёлое, сумасшедшее путешествие Гарри Дрездена и его друзей с очень интересной мифологией. Я продолжая наслаждаться дикой фантазией Бутчера, и я особенно люблю его Денариев - классные персонажи. Рекомендую.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan

bought on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads

Will Grayson meets Will Grayson. One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two strangers are about to cross paths. From that moment on, their world will collide and lives intertwine.

It's not that far from Evanston to Naperville, but Chicago suburbanites Will Grayson and Will Grayson might as well live on different planets. When fate delivers them both to the same surprising crossroads, the Will Graysons find their lives overlapping and hurtling in new and unexpected directions. With a push from friends new and old - including the massive, and massively fabulous, Tiny Cooper, offensive lineman and musical theater auteur extraordinaire - Will and Will begin building toward respective romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history's most awesome high school musical.

My first encounter with Green and Levithan, and I can honestly say, that book wasn't a good fit for me. Too much drama and angst, and especially all of this in audiobook format made me switch off from time to time. It didn't quite hold my interest. However, the ending is pretty cool which is why I gave it a higher rating.

 Моя первая книга от обоих авторов, и я с уверенностью могу сказать, что они - не для меня. Слищком много драма и подростковых переживаний. Формат аудиокниги тоже не помогал поддерживать мой интерес и время от времени я вообще переставала обращать внимание на происходящее. Однако, концовка классная, и потому я даю этой книге неплохую оценку.

Turn Coat by Jim Butcher (Harry Dresden #11)

bought on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads
When it comes to the magical ruling body known as the White Council, Harry keeps his nose clean and his head down. For years, the Council has held a death mark over Harry's head. He's still thought of as a black sheep by some and as a sacrificial lamb by others. But none regard him with more suspicion and disdain than Morgan, a veteran Warden with a grudge against anyone who bends the rules.

Like Harry.

So when Morgan turns up asking for help, Harry isn't exactly eager to leap into action. Morgan has been accused of treason against the White Council, and there's only one final punishment for that crime. He's on the run, he wants his name cleared, and he needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog.

Like Harry.

Now Harry must uncover a traitor within the Council, keep a less than agreeable Morgan under wraps, and avoid coming under scrutiny himself. And a single mistake may cost someone his head.

Like Harry...

Loved this one really more, because Morgan in distress was a thing f beauty. Karma is a b*tch! By the way, he is a very well made character. The ending has a very cool twist to it as well, a little sad, but cool. Totally puts a good spin on the whole series.

Очень мне понравилась эта книга, потому как на Моргана по уши в неприятностях смотрела я со злорадством. Он кстати очень хороший персонаж. Концовка переворачивает многое с ног на голову и застявляет по новому посмотреть на происходящее.  Очень интересно!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
