Time for some books. I finished one series (4 books in the series, to be precise) before the break and one new book this week.
As part of Kindle Unlimited, I started off with the 2nd book in the series, so I haven’t gone back to the first one because I know how it ends and what actually happened in that (to most extent). It was very interesting and very gripping. It made me go ahead and finish all the other books in the series until book 6, which is yet to be released. As it happens with any mystery, thriller, detective series, I end up forsaking my sleep (totally annoying Mr M in the process) to finish these books. It was a good series actually, building up slowly and steadily. As it usually happens in these series, over a few books you tend to get the pattern and you might even start to guess who the culprit is. But then something else gets thrown in the loop and your theory goes awry. It was fun. Kept me on my toes, or rather the fingertips (kindle!)
I love patterns, in everything. I try and see patterns in all things possible to make sense of it. That is one of my quirks or an unconscious habit, one of those. When I read the premise of this story on Kindle Unlimited list I was very intrigued. A Computational Biologist who loves the patterns and such…what is not to like. When I started the story, I didn’t expect it to complete it in a day and a half (yes, including my sleep time). It became a little dramatic towards the end, but then this fellow is no superhero or trained to fight like the cops. All he has are his data, his patterns, and his belief in them. It was very gripping and very intriguing. There is definitely some drama in it, which is OK for me. I was wondering if they would make a TV series from such books. It will be interesting. Or maybe they already do and I haven’t bothered to check. The ending was a little blunt when compared to the other series I read. Not that I am complaining. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.
