Happy Monday to everybody; only five days to Friday, Oops sorry, that sounds depressing. Thanks for all the kind words on the addition of Graphic Novel Friday. I will take all your suggestions to heart and do as much with them as possible. We are starting two new things this week. First we are adding a new tab to the site titled ”Facebook/ Goodreads Writers”. Pressing on the tab will get you to a new page that contains friends that are writers we have made on Facebbok / Goodreads. We like to support our friends. Check them out, friend them if you don’t know them and try their books. I always enjoy finding new stuff to read, why not a new friend’s stuff. On Thursday, I will begin to feature a new book from that tab and post on it. To get the ball rolling in that direction I am currently reading “A Real Basket Case” by Beth Groundwater.
Today’s book is The Pallbearers. I love the title, love Shane Scully and just love this book. I have read all Cannell’s work, Scully and non-Scully. I have also enjoyed the different television series he has written. The Pallbearers is an excellent read for many reasons:
-We the reader really get into the head of Scully and find out more about his youth and who helped him thru it, even though he was an orphan.
- The other Pallbearers are excellent characters in their own right. I am guessing we haven’t seen the last of them. I am looking forward to reading about them in future books.
-Scully can now have a Yodi like presence in his life.
-Maybe Scully can finally remove the big chip on his shoulder he has been carrying around. This would mean one less secret and a bit less guilt for him to carry.
-For once we don’t find Scully battling his wife and City Hall but a force held deep within himself.
-Finally he relies on others and is a team player.
-Cannell offers another book that is a fast, crisp ride that would make any roller coaster ride proud. The story from beginning to end is strong, fast and in your face. Give it a try. What are reading today? Check us out on Facebook, Goodreads, Linkedin, Blog Catalog,and Twitter
