14 by Peter Clines
Well, I read through that book like there was no tomorrow. It was very enjoyable and I couldn't put it down. As the cover indicates there is a definite sense of the show Lost and I'd throw in a spattering of Twilight Zone, but then with the focus on the building, I kept thinking back to Ghostbusters and actually, The Secret World. The characters were relatable, the story arcs were intricate and interesting, and I felt the pacing was good for the suspense build up at the end. I could definitely see this becoming a movie, but then I'd also like to see it get a sequel – these characters could easily carry a trilogy. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in SciFi, horror, or suspense.
Before finishing off 14, I started a new character in Wildstar. This time around, I'm trying out an Esper since that seems to be an interesting class. It's been a while, but from what I recall, the beginning quests on the ship lasted a lot longer before the game went free to play. There were at least twice as many quests last time and the way things are currently set, the few that remain went by in a flash. It will be seen if I get the same sense of story I got last time but I seemed to have solved all the issues on the ship in record time. Since I went to Everstar Grove last time, I decided to see what the Northern Wilds would hold and I'm hoping this time the game will stick with me for a while.
