The Fifth Wave BY RICK YANCEY

Psss… Hey you! I heard you liked sci-fi movies involving an alien invasion. Wanna hear what this book is all about? Aliens invade the earth in five steps, using electromagnetic pulse, induced tsunamis, and a pandemic. They must have their own reasons for this methodical but inefficient campaign, and the motivations of aliens could indeedContinue reading “The Fifth Wave BY RICK YANCEY”

The Gods Never Left Us: The Long Awaited Sequel to the Worldwide Best-seller Chariots of the Gods by von Daniken, Erich

50 years after Chariots of the Gods. In 1966 I wrote my first book, Chariots of the Gods. In the introduction I stated, “Writing this book requires courage— reading it no less so. Because its hypotheses and evidence do not fit into the laboriously constructed mosaic of established conventional wisdom, scholars will put it onContinue reading “The Gods Never Left Us: The Long Awaited Sequel to the Worldwide Best-seller Chariots of the Gods by von Daniken, Erich”

Only Human (Themis Files #3) by Sylvain Neuvel

I really loved Sleeping Giants and Walking Gods from the Themis Files trilogy by Sylvain Neuvel. Sylvain Neuvel was asked during an interview where his ideas of mecha robots came from and he mentioned it originated from a series of questions his son started asking when he was offered a robot as a toy. What kind ofContinue reading “Only Human (Themis Files #3) by Sylvain Neuvel”

Dean Koontz * The Taking Book Review

In one of the most dazzling books of his celebrated career, Dean Koontz delivers a masterwork of page-turning suspense that surpasses even his own inimitable reputation as a chronicler of our worst fears—and best dreams. In THE TAKING he tells the story of a community cut off from a world under siege, and the terrifyingContinue reading “Dean Koontz * The Taking Book Review”

Stephen King * Dreamcatcher

“Wanting more is just a recipe for heartache.” This must be among my top 5 favourite Stephen King Books. It’s got everything I love about a good story: memorable characters, aliens, mind control, a twist and amazing dialogue. The movie wasn’t that bad either! Even though this is one of the very few stories whoseContinue reading “Stephen King * Dreamcatcher”

The War of the Worlds * H.G. Wells

Every passing decade, the culture of human beings as a whole has been significantly affected by technology and science. Whether it’s something small, like the invention of automatic doors, or something enormously important, like the invention of the telegraph or the discovery of DNA, technology and science change the way we live, and how we view life, all theContinue reading “The War of the Worlds * H.G. Wells”

The Tommyknockers * Stephen King’s Green Light UFO

“Late last night and the night before, tommyknockers, tommyknockers knocking on my door. I wanna go out, don’t know if I can ‘cuz I’m so afraid of the tommyknocker man.” Like many of the Mother Goose rhymes, the verse about the Tommyknockers is deceptively simple. The origin of the word is difficult to trace. Webster’sContinue reading “The Tommyknockers * Stephen King’s Green Light UFO”
