[Reviews] Promised LandThere's a bit too much talking and not enough mystery in the fourth Spenser novel.
Thankfully, an appreciation for baseball isn't a prerequisite as you dive into the third Spenser mystery novel.
The third Spenser novel is titles “Mortal Stakes,” which is a clever title for reasons that a general plot summary makes clear. Spenser has been called to see if there’s unpleasant truth to a baseball club manager’s suspicion that one of his best pitchers is occasionally throwing games to keep gamblers happy.
The second Spenser book isn't as memorable as the first, but it's still a good read.
“God Save the Child” is Robert B. Parker’s follow-up to “The Godwulf Manuscript,” and as sequels go, it’s pretty good. The first novel felt a bit more polished, though, and I would imagine Parker spent longer working on it to get things just right. I don’t get that same sense here, but I was still quite satisfied with the end result.
If you like reading or producing high-quality game guides, you could be in for some excitement!
Since early Friday evening, I've spent very nearly every waking hour putting together something very important to me and possibly to the future of HonestGamers. This afternoon, I finally put the finishing touches on that project.
The project to which I am referring is a brand new CMS (content management system) that will facilitate the creation of new HTML guides. As part of the effort, I also put together this Mega Man 2 guide. I wrote the original draft of the guide way back in 2004, but now I've revised it and added brand new screenshots. I figure it's the perfect way to showcase what my new CMS can do.
A light read that capably introduces readers to one of the mystery genre's most famous sleuths.
Robert B. Parker passed away in 2010, but he left behind more than 60 novels that were sufficient to earn him a reputation as one of the greatest mystery writers in recent memory. I knew I would read some of his work eventually, after seeing his name dropped everywhere, and last night I started from the beginning.
