Having read the first in The Circle trilogy (Black) last year, I was eager to complete the trilogy. The timing was also good since I knew I’d be traveling, and would enjoy some light fare.
I enjoyed Red and White (categorized as science fiction and fantasy by Amazon and as suspense on the back cover), but I wasn’t terribly engrossed in them like I expected to be. Fun reads, but not impressive on a deeper level, or something. I do like the story, though. The first book, which I read last year, I think I finished in a day or so. These volumes I was able to walk away from. Still worthwhile reads, and they did serve the purpose I set for them, a relatively breezy break from heavier tomes.
I also read Dekker’s Thr3e.
This book and its premise was intriguing. It was made into a 2006 movie, but I haven’t seen the film. I was interested in how it addressed mental health (or illness). This book had a small tinge of sadness that I wasn’t expecting. Again, it was an enjoyable read, though; not too sad.
