Guest Blog – The Fibro Frog.


ElsewhereElsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was going to give this book four stars because the author uses the trick of present tense writing. Most of the time, I hate that method. Sometimes on an action-packed story it works but even then I find it tiring. But the five stars are restored because I just felt it was such a precious story.

It moves slowly at first. But after you get to know who she, Liz Hall, is and where she is you start to feel more for the whole tale.

Poor Liz Hall killed in a hit and run when she was almost 16 years old. Never to reach adulthood, never to get her driver’s license, graduate, get married, have a career, have her own children… And if we are sorry for her loss you should see how she feels!

What an interesting take on the afterlife. Neither Heaven or Hell. Just… Elsewhere. Where you age backward from the day you get there. Where you can learn to talk ‘dog’ or other pet languages. Yes, our pets are there.

There are many sweet moments throughout the book. Then again, many bittersweet moments pull at you. In the end, I had tears running down my face, Not telling why. No spoilers here!

It took me a while to read. But I’m glad. I liked having the story to fall into as I chose. The font was okay and the amount of vanilla-colored paper made reading easy. I think I might like to get the Kindle version to read it again someday. I am sorry to let it go, ya know?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh. My. Goodness! Whew! That was a ride! Any of you old enough to remember E-tickets? Yeah, that kind of ride. So much fun, yet keeping you on the edge of your seat the whole time.

Was it the fantastic narration of Patrick Lawlor or did the author, Jack Kilborn just have that many funny bones in him? Whichever, or the combination, I had so many laugh out loud moments while reading that I am glad I was at home. I can imagine others in a library, looking at me like I was crazy. As it was I had to not let my husband know the joke as he plans to read this next.

The setting is in the far future and the main character, Talon Avalon, on of the last peace officers, one of the few that can operate the time machine to help solve crimes, is running for his life. Someone has stolen his identity, or so it seems. Now he is wanted for murder among other crimes.

This book takes place over two days. Our hero goes through everything, it seems. The orgy where he is an unwilling participant is the funniest. Don’t ask how that happens. You have to start at the beginning.

I do need to warn you that as I mentioned above, there are a couple sex scenes and much adult humor and language. But if you are mature enough (or have been raised with brothers and raised sons) none of it will shock you and may actually tickle your own funny bones.

Hurray for Kindle Unlimited with Whispersynch. That’s how I found this book. And now I am off to book two: Timecaster: Supersymmestry.

Here’s to your own enjoyment reading these!
