Min mor var besat: Da jeg mødte depressionens dæmon by Peter Øvig Knudsen

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


Den får 2 stjerner, kun fordi at det er så fint beskrevet hvor svært det er at føle noget man ikke føler, eller at føle sig som en kæmpe lort fordi man måske har svært ved at finde den der dybe relationsdrevne kærlighed til en forældre – selvom man faktisk holder meget af dem.

men den er simpelthen så kedelig at jeg måtte opgive. Hvor ville jeg ønske at Øvig ville holde sig til emnet, og ikke begynde at fortælle om alt muligt andet. Der går lige Tolkien i den, sådan “og dragen brølede, pludseligt så hobitten at der lå en mønt, det var helt sikkert en guld mønt fra Beleriand, som sank i havet efter tiden af de to træer – denne bestemte mønt den…” – og man sidder lidt der MEN HVAD MED DRAGEN? COME ON!

Og det er jo så selvfølgeligt subjektivt. Men det er helt sikkert sidste gang jeg gir Øvig en chance – med mindre han selvfølgeligt betaler mig for tiden det tager at læse.

TL;DR – YOU COULDNT PAY ME TO ATTEMPT TO READ THIS AGAIN.

Cause blogging is therapeutic

Found this old story, and since this is finished – I decided to post it at my other writers blog that I made – Well it’s not easy to redefine one self as an author. I mean give up or go on, and so I decided to give it another go but this time it’s on my terms.

The new blog is only for finished stuff and sneak preveiws of stuff to publish, and this blog is still about writing, and what books I read. I do admit I read more than I write these days.

Anyways here is the link.

Reading: Creepypasta: The Comic

Creepypasta: The Comic by Vincent V. Cava

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


Why does this even exist? The art is horrible, and the stories are uninspired and dumb. I will however give props to the fact that whoever made this happen, was thinking outside the box, and tried to have that old ‘tales from the crypt’ feel to it.
Creepypastas are a great media to base comics on, so I really don’t know what happened. Or maybe I do, I mean – repeating myself, I know – this is a cashgrab, two semi popular people trying to bang a buck out of their audience. And dude, that is fine – just go into it knowing that it’s not good, or remotely creepy. it’s a circlejerk, a project to throw at the wall to see if it stuck – it didn’t.

But if you are a fan of either V. Cava or MrCreepypasta, by all means, knock yourself out, and add this to your fangirl library.

Reading: The book #1

The Book #1 by Erik Hendrix

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


I don’t get it.

Call me stupid, but I don’t understand the storyline, and I don’t like the art style. Also I am back at my pet peeve – cliffhangers.. why, just why. It doesn’t make me want to buy the next album, it just pisses me off because it leads me to believe that this is the trend in the series, and I don’t want to use money on 2 or 3 issues to even reach a point where I am invested enough to care.

Call me jaded, and I realise it’s a business model – I just hate it, and it is the biggest turn off for me.

I can’t even write a decent reveiw because as I said I don’t get it.. woman is sacrificed, some cops do cop stuff, also someone finds a book on the last page in the issue. what?

Reading: Marvel Zombies (#1 -5)

Marvel Zombies Collection by Robert Kirkman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I own this as a kindle (comiXology) version.

I had to get this again, I downloaded it back in TPB days, and lost it. I always loved that comic, and so decided to get the collection of all the issues, minus the ones where the storyline was mentionend from other comics.

It’s still a great comic, though it didn’t really hold up well. Other comics with the same sort of theme as been made since, better storylines and better everything. But this is still the grandfather of them all, and for that it holds a special place. I was always a little sad that we are thrust into the story as we are, that we don’t know what calamity happened to turn them all into zombies, not that it really matter – the story reads fine anyways. It has a lot of funny moments and is in general pretty silly, which is the most endearing quality about this – it never tries to take itself serious.

If you don’t know this comic, then be aware that it might be a little dated. But it is none the less a great read, and the art is A+.

Reading: De døde brødre

De døde brødre by Nick Clausen

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Okay så det her var faktisk den første bog af forfatteren jeg læste, og jeg elsker YA horror, det er ingen hemmelighed. Og jeg var svært begejstret ved at få den der følelse som ved det tidlige Dennis Jürgensen (før alt hans detektiv pjat).
Det er faktisk generelt en lidt ‘back to basics’ fortælling på alle planer, og jeg elsker det. Hvad jeg ikke elsker helt så meget er hvordan hele optrapningen til slutning spiller ud, den er lidt nem at gennemskue for en bog der ellers var et stort mysterium. Infodumps er skidt, og det er lige meget om det er bøger, spil eller film, det skriger til himmelen af doven eller dårlig fortælleteknik, at det ikke er muligt at inkorporere det i den faktiske historie. Ja eller også så er det fordi at forfatteren ønskede at sidde på mysteriet så længe som muligt, og derfor ender slutningen med at være det her crazy infodump af plot linjer som du som den observante læser godt havde regnet ud. Og igen noget af det gir ingen fuckin mening.

Jeg vil altså alligevel klart anbefale den, og jeg ved godt at jeg er en voksen kvinde med hang til teenage bøger. Men jeg tænker den faktisk nok tiltaler de der 14 årige mest.

Bogen findes som audiobog, jeg har også lyttet til den via streaming.

Jeg tror faktisk bare ikke jeg er til emnet. Jeg opgav halvvejs, og jeg kan kun blive sur på mig selv fordi jeg ikke læste ‘om’ sektionen godt nok, fordi så havde jeg sprunget over.

Jeg har lyttet til den som audiobog, selvom den ikke findes i den version på GR.
