Today is definitely Christmas. Vokhtah has received its fourth review, and this one touched me more than I can say because it was written by someone who normally avoids science fiction!
Jennifer is a fellow Aussie who makes beautiful things with her hands instead of with words, but I think her words are pretty good too.
‘We’re in a book shop. Which direction would you go. What genre would you make a bee line for?
For me, the sci-fi/fantasy section would be last on the list. Well, maybe a tie with politics, but you get the idea. Not my cup of tea.
So it was a surprise to me after reading the blurb of a fellow bloggers book that I opened the wallet and bought it. It drew me in and I was compelled to check it out.
I like my books with real life characters and places, things I can relate to. Words I can pronounce (mostly anyway). I don’t mind watching the odd sci-fi or fantasy styled movie, I am a visual person like that, but books have to be based on something ‘real’, whether it’s murder and mayhem, espionage, humour or the odd chick-lit.
I’m not sure what I was expecting. Except that it had to draw me in long enough to want to finish it. And it did that…’
