Not Your Daughter's Werewolf
You don't need a flashlight to read a book under the covers!
This is not a teen werewolf book. Unless the teen has nicked the book from the family's library and is hiding it behind a textbook or reading it in private under the covers.
"The Last Werewolf" got a lot of hype/notice/interest. Books on the Nightstand liked it. I think it was on a Top 5 from a Powell's employee. It's a fast paced read. It's not high literature but it is a fun, engaging story that keeps you entertained.
Now I understand the difference between werewolves and vampires. Werewolves still have sex. According to this book, a LOT of sex. They can't talk when they are changed, they have to kill humans to fill their Hunger and they, too, live forever. Or until someone shoots them with a silver bullet.
And, yes, the full moon I saw on the way to the gym yesterday morning did give me some pause. Plus, I did not see the cliffhanger ending coming at all so Bravo! to you Glen Duncan.
Want to read this? Great snowy weekend book or save it for a summer read. I checked this one out from CPL using the Kindle format. So easy. Yes, I may have to wait a while for a Kindle book to be available but I've built up a waiting list and wish list on my CPL Overdrive account so I can be patient. I've added a new tag to Library Thing and my blog - Kindle CPL - in case you are interested in checking the book out from the library.
Watched Episode 1 of Season 2 of "Downton Abbey" last night. I may go into a decline if Bates does not return. Such a great show and I now have my mom hooked.
What did I do last weekend? Well, I have been saying I want to read more non-fiction and I was at a history trade show and the vendors were selling their books for cheap and I did not have to pack them in a suitcase. How could I resist???
