Through My Eyes

I am about as far as you can get from being a football fan [MMA is my sport of choice], however when Tim Tebow visited my church, earlier this month, he intrigued me enough (very funny guy!) to go out and buy his biography.

If you are a Tebow (or football) fan, then I would imagine that you would enjoy this book.
Tebow seems to me to be a pretty stand-up guy with a work ethic that is above & beyond!

I enjoyed the book (football stuff aside) and I enjoyed hearing him speak at my church.

The Auschwitz Escape

Absolutely phenomenal!
Definitely one of the best books that I have ever read!

Monday, April 6, 2015


Not only is this book a sequel to 'The Loch', it is also a prequel to the upcoming 'Meg 5: NightStalkers' novel. . .

Taking place two years after The Loch, 'Vostok' follows the adventures of Marine Biologist Zachary Wallace (and later Jonas Taylor, from the 'Meg' series of novels) as they explore Vostok - a 6,000 square-mile lake, over 1,000 feet deep, and two-and-a-half miles below an ice cap!

I LOVED the 1st half of this book! Absolutely fantastic! A fun, nail-biting adventure.

Then, the book suddenly jumps ahead, seven years later, and shifts in a completely different direction.

I am not saying that the latter half isn't good, it's just different. The book, as a whole, is a great read, I just enjoyed the first half more than the second.

It will be interesting to see how this book will tie into 'Meg 5'. (I have only read 'Meg' and 'Meg: Origins' so I need to get on the ball and read the others, before  Meg 5 comes out this summer...)

The Loch

With the release of Steve Alten's 'Vostok' (the sequel to 'The Loch') last month, I figured that it was time for me to go ahead and read 'The Loch'.
(I bought it, years ago, however it was one of those books that I just never got around to reading until now.)

If only I had read this book when I first bought it.
It is a Fantastic book!

Alten has created an excellent cast of characters,  (characters that I hope to see return in 'Vostok'!) and the book is full of sound science and Scottish history, which makes for a fun/quick read.

Stay tuned, because 'Vostok' is definitely going to be the next book that I read. . .
