Bermuda Triangle
Bermuda Triangle by Susan Cartwright
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My author friend, Susan Cartwright gave this story to me a while back to see what I thought. For some odd reason I didn’t do a review. Maybe there wasn’t a place here on GoodReads at the time? I don’t know. I just saw it listed on my Shelfari. Yeah, I keep forgetting that site is there. So I thought I would try to make sure this review happened.

Okay, the writing was great. The overall story was interesting. My own biases get invovled here. I found it too man-heavy. I am not into military life and jargon, though the author did a wonderful job in her research. This is where my navy husband was able to verify that research.

I did like the ending, it felt rather like Twilight Zone or X-Files. You do not guess how it will end.

Oh, my other bias is short stories. I am not only a novel reader, I prefer LONG series. I love getting to know the characters in depth and learning about their worlds. So, unfortunately, this made me uncomfortable in telling my friend how I felt. Still, after all this time I remember the story, so I am going to raise my rate from three stars to four. :-)

20140719 SoC Saturday This post is part of SoCS: http://lindaghill.wordpress.com/2014/07/18/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-july-1914/ The prompt for this Stream of Consciousness Saturday is ‘side’.

I can’t decide which way to go. There are so many words and sayings that use the word side: sidecar, an aside, sideboard, sidebar, sideburns,  side dish, and so many more. But looking to my side, I realized the most important side.

I’ve talked about my fibro and exhaustion. Through it all the man at my side, my husband, has been the best things that has happened to me. He takes care me so sweetly, every day, whether I am hurting or not. At my worst he cooks my food and cleans. At my best he is my best friend, someone who laughs with me and watches even the most ‘girly’ shows with me.

We are partners in this life and have so much in common, reading and writing at the top of the list. I am so lucky! How many people can say that? As I say all this you might think we are newly weds. Nope. We have been together for about twenty years, married for a decade.

Aside from that what more does my consciousness want to go? I seem to have gotten sidetracked. That is because my hubby and I are watching Hemlock Grove. Wow. What a show! Hey, that was merely a sidelight. I hope to do this more often. This was such a good day for me. I look forward, and to my side, to more of them!
