Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

Image
There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

Book Review: Desperation by Stephen King

Have you ever found a book so depressing that it took you over four years to read? Desperation by Stephen King was that book for me. Don't get me wrong . . . it was very well written but depressing beyond on belief, so I kept putting it aside to read other novels. 

At one point, I was making so much progress that I really wanted to finish it despite it being so depressing, so I kept pushing through. Then, the nightmares began . . . every night for a week. I guess having multiple nightmares attests to how well written it is. As a side note, I've been a huge fan of horror movies since elementary school. Poltergeist, Halloween, and Nightmare on Elm Street were popular choices for me, and not one time did I ever have a nightmare. 

I'm not sure I can say there any redeeming qualities about the plot . . . a few lessons learned and a semi happy ending, but that's about it. King wrote a sequel, The Regulators, under his pen name Richard Bachman, but if it is as depressing as this book, I'm not sure I want to read it.

Have I mentioned how depressing Desperation is? I have?! Okay, let's move on. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone despite giving it a rating of three out of five stars. 


Synopsis of Desperation by Stephen King

Desperation, Nevada. If you travel Interstate 50, you'll come to the loneliest city . . . Desperation. Move right along or you might just die trying to get out. An ancient evil is unleashed upon the town of Desperation that overtakes the bodies of the city's citizens . . . one person at a time.

No one is safe . . . You can run, but you can't hide.
