Review: Ready Player One

Ready Player One Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I don't like it.
I am a gamer. I like books and movies like this one, but not this one.
I cannot even believe that I finally managed to finish it!
It's unbearably boring. I suppose that this book could become a very nice movie, but I don't understand why it became so popular. Moreover, I have the deja vue about this book.
From the moment I started reading it two years ago.
When I was a kid, there was this one movie about some children who lived in a virtual reality and had to win some kind of contest there.
I don't know if the author has ever seen the movie or if Cline thinks that his idea is original, but it is not.

Review: Death du Jour

Death du Jour Death du Jour by Kathy Reichs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The book is very interesting. I like the way Reichs writes.
I think that this is going to become my next favourite books series.
The novel has everything I have ever wanted from a crime book: mystery, just a bit of romance, unpredictable twists. I am very found of Tempe and her way of handling problems. I would definitely start on the next book as soon as possible.
