I AM REVIEWING STUFF BECAUSE I AM BORED.

Book(date: March 01, 2009):

Duma Key by Stephen King.

This is one of the few Stephen King books that I like (include From a Buick 8 and Everything's Eventual and that is all the Stephen King books I like.). It is about a man in about his 40's who was injured in a construction accident. He lost his right arm, broke his hip, and has trouble remember shit. As the story progress, his wife leaves him and he moves off to a Florida Key called. . . well Duma Key. He starts painting and realizes that his painting holds some power unknown to him, but known to an aging woman with Alzheimer's (right?).

It turns into a Stephen King book (and by that I mean weird shit starts happening) almost half-way through, and it actually a wonderful book to read. It is one of the best books I've read.

Cell by Stephen King.

AHHH. I thought the idea of Stephen King doing a book about ZOMBIES (OR CLOSE TO IT) would be AWESOME. . . BUT NO: HE HAD TO FUCK IT UP WITH THE ANTI-CLIMATIC ENDING. YOU HAD TELEPATHIC ZOMBIES FLOATING AROUND IN THE AIR AND FIGHTING EACH OTHER AND SHIT LIKE THAT, AND YOU END WITH THE SENTENCE "FO-FO YOU-YOU"?! AHH YOU BITCH. >:(

If you forget the ending, then it is a good book. I guess. Kind of. Not really. Don't buy it.

Book (on March 1st, 2009)

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.

A fantasy story that is different then most others I've read. It is about a man called Kvothe (pronounced Quoth) telling a story about his life and him trying to learn the name of the wind. He was a child of two traveling performers of some kind of circus and they travel with an alchemist (don't quote me on that) called Ben. He teaches him the ways of alchemy until everyone around him is killed by a fabled race. You can read the book to figure our the rest.

This is the first book of a series released by this writer and I must say it is very good. The only thing that is the pain in the ass is that it came out in 2008 (or '07) and the sequel is gonna take it's sweet ass time to come out.
