Why I’m Digital

Standard

Sony Book Reader PRS-600 Touch Edition

I am already digital- Absolutely! I have an e-reader- being a writer who is published both under her real name (print and digital) and a pseudonym (digitally)- I would be an idiot not to have one. Trying to market e-books w/o a reader seems almost criminal, doesn’t it?

I have the Sony Touch. I like it except I wish it was wireless- that books could be uploaded w/o the usb cord. AND the battery life is not as long as I’d like since you can’t read while it is charging.

“Dimiter”

Standard

I just finished the book named Dimiter by William Peter Blatty. This is the same man that wrote the Exorcist, among other books.   I like lots of different genres and thought this one sounded like a good read. Alas. It was below my expectations.

This book was a little slow to catch my attention. There were a lot of characters with a lot of strange names. It was difficult at first to keep them straight and it didn’t get much better. I had to keep going backward (not easy to do on an e-reader, by the way) to be sure I had the right character in mind.

It was a depressing tale as well. There was a bit of redemption but not enough to make me happy.  The reviewers called it a thriller- sorry, I didn’t see that at all. Nope.  Kind of dull and scholarly in my opinion.  No thrill there.

As to the New York Post reviewer, Jennifer Shaw, it would be my opinion that she either didn’t read the book or the hard cover is a totally different story than the e-book.  She named some of the characters but she obviously had no clue as to their relationship.  Sounded like she read the book jacket and moved on.  Should’ve been what I did.

In all, I give this one a thumbs down.
