Reading: min mor var besat – da jeg mødte depressionen

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.

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: Bloodborne – a song of crows (#9 -12)

Bloodborne #9 by Aleš Kot

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


This reveiw is for issue 9 to 12 – the song of crows.

in the game, Eileen is one of my favorite characters, she is badass and a little jaded, sad and mysterious too. So I was very exited to see this story arc, and read that it was about her origin. Sadly this is where this comic series as a whole (#1 to 16) takes a dramatic nosedive.

It’s terrible, I have no other words for it. I think it was issue 11 that was like only some LSD inspired images of her falling through stuff. Come on, I wanted her origin story, I don’t want something that looks like the author and illustrator tried to make something psychadelic to explain something deep, that they don’t really know how to explain or bridge, and ergo tries to be all spacy about it so no one questions it.

It’s somehow very disjointed from the Eileen you meet in the game, and it’s not like Bloodborne is overly Lovecraftian, until the end. And I do realise that the cosmic terror is a part of the lore, but it somehow just seems weird in this comic form, it doesn’t work at all.

Please don’t.

Words of advise, if you read this arc, don’t expect a whole lot – and maybe it’s even enjoyable.

Bait by Amy Cross

Really I tried. I usually love what this author makes, so I actually bought 2 of the books in the series without even thinking twice. Yeah… Who wants a kindlebook?

I don’t even recall why I found it so terribly boring – and that in it self tells me something about it, I mean I have no clue what it was about besides two crimminals discussing whatever, tiles I think? or maybe that was another book. *sigh

Seriously, this author is so good! this book is however not, and I am not even going to deal with the sequel unless the world ends and the world run out of other books to read. (well not true, cause there are worse books than this – by far!) I guess I am just super diappointed.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


I love Hellblazer! Huge fan for many years… this however is boring. I have no idea how you go about making John Constantine boring, and that it was Neil Gaiman puzzles me even more.. But the fact stand, I was bored to tears!
There ought to be a law against anything with Hellblazer and Halloween in the same title, to be this tripe.

Excuse me while I go cry in a corner.


Reading: Kellie’s Diary #1

Kellie’s Diary #1 by Thomas Jenner

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


First I have to say that it has a great premise, and I love the fact that it’s available both as a sort of graphic novella (no pictures but it looks hand written on paper), and as a regular text kindle read.

But that is about the only nice thing I have to say. Because you #¤% me off! You know what I hate? I hate cliffhangers, and I hate obvious money grabs. This is the same reason I don’t play anything on battle.net, or give my credit information to my new uncle that emailed me from Nigeria

– And you did both. Not only did you end the book on the mother of all cliffhangers – which I could have forgiven you for, was it not for the fact that you have like 4 more books in the series that I am expected to pay for.

I was invested, the premise as I said, was solid. But there is no way in hell that I am paying for what is essensial a fanfic that would have done better on reddit.

My advise to you? revise it, and have 2 books instead and maybe then people wouldn’t feel like they just got involved in a ponzi.


Reading: Svært barn har mange navne

Svært barn har mange navne by Camilla Louise Johnson

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


Altså, jeg husker hende godt da hun var Lydia – jeg har mødt hende flere gange, hvor jeg i hendes optik var fjenden, en af de der vrede unge mennesker fra Jagtvej. Jeg ville have haft total respekt for denne fortælling, som på mange planer er skræmmende og frygtelig, og en usikkerhed som jeg selv kender til. Men jeg tabte illusionen om troværdigheden var da hun beskrev en situation som jeg personligt var en del af, og hendes beskrivelse som er fremført som fakta – passer simpelthen ikke, det er aldrig sket. Hvilket så får mig til at overveje hvor meget andet der er opspind for dramatisk effekt. Eller om det er der narrativ som har eksisteret i kirken og det derfor er blevet den kollektive opfattelse og hun derfor husker det gennem et filter, det skal jeg ikke kunne sige – men det gør mig simpelthen så skide skuffet. Jeg ved at forfatteren senere har været med til at skabe et exit program for folk fanget i sekteriske grupper, hvilket jeg har alt mulig respekt for.
Jeg har mødt mange af de mennesker hun skriver om, som Ruth og Christina, jeg har set den kulde der kommer fra begge – og hørt det religiøse vanvid der kommer fra deres munde. Det var svært at tage seriøst dengang som nu, men jeg er ikke et sekund i tvivl om at Ruth er en farlig kvinde, en mester manipulator.
Så tak til forfatteren for at sætte fokus på hjernevask og skadelige sekter, og fortsæt endeligt dit gode arbejde, du er uden tvivl en dygtig mentor med meget erfaring, men forfatter blir du aldrig, sorry not sorry.


[I remember her from she was Lydia – I met her on several occations where I, in her world were the enemy – one of those angry young people from Jagtvej. I would have had nothing but respect for this story, which is super unnerving and scary on many levels. But I lost the illusion of credability when she described a situation where I was there in person, and her account in regards to what was facts – is simply not true, it never happened that way. Which in turn makes me wonder how much of her tale is just that, a tale spun for readers. Or if it was the narrative which existed within the church and therefore she remebers it through that filter of brainwashing, I don’t know – but it is very disappointing. I know the author later was the driving force behing making a Danish exit program for people caught up in cults, and I do respect that.

I met many of the people she describes in her book, like Ruth and Christina, and I have felt the cold from them both, and I have heard their religious nonsense. It was as difficult to take seriously back then as it is now, but there is no doubt in my mind that Ruth is a dangerous woman, a master manipulator. So thank you to the author for making aware of the brainwashing going on inside the Danish cults, and please do continue the good work of helping -I am sure you are a good mentor with lots of experience – But you will never be an author, sorry not sorry.]

Jeg ville bare så gerne kunne li den, men jeg måtte simpelthen opgive. Jeg ved ikke hvorfor den er kedelig, om det er fortæller stilen? Fordi Nannas historie er jo rimeligt hektisk.

[I really wanted to like this, but I simply had to give up. I don’t know why I find it so boring, if it’s the narrator or the style – Because Nannas story is pretty hectic]

This might be unfair, because if you have not read much from this author – I’m sure this is a awesome collection of stories. But I personally felt a little ripped off, cause I read most of these stories elsewhere before. What I had not read before was decent, but I know this author can do better.
