Last light by Terri Blackstock
This was a great suspenseful read. One of those books that I did not want to put down because I could not wait to find out what would happen next...now I have to get the sequel, Night Light. I will probably also read every book she has ever written. She just writes good, Christan suspense. Yes , there are good christian authors out there...always making sure that the truth of needing Jesus is written into the novel. I think I finished this book in 4 days..all 377 pages. The reason I read this was it is part of the book club I am in and it was the read for the month. I am part of a girlfriend's group who meets once a month to discuss the book we are assigned to read and over dinner and delve into a new on...two of my favorite things: good food and books. However, the meetings keep taking place on the day I have a regional meeting for my job. One of these days they will not conflict and I will get to go. All I can tell you about the book is that it starts out with a major city losing all forms of electricity....from the basic electricity to cars working...even your battery operated watch doesn't work. The suspense builds from there. Good Stuff...I recommend it to one and all....even the kids...well, teenagers, younger kids might get freaked out over the murders that happen. The book really takes you in and it can make you feel like you are right there while it is all happening. I will now be moving on to the chunkster challenge...book #2. Angels and Demons by Dan Browne. I will be going through lots of books since the hubby leaves for the army Monday and will want to keep the mind occupied so I don't dwell on the loneliness of him not being here with us for 15 weeks.
