I loved these books years ago, and wasn't sure I would still enjoy them now but I do. Especially the first book of trilogy #2 (The Wounded Land).


I absolutely loved the first trilogy and eagerly awaited the arrival of The Wounded Land. I dove straight in as soon as I got it. Jesus Christ, what a chore! From the start, there were usually at least ten words per page that I had to look for in a dictionary. My conclusion was that Stephen R. Donaldson had used the proceeds from the first trilogy to invest in a thesaurus and was determined to get his money's worth. I so loved the first Chronicles,and still do, though, that I ploughed through the second. It was worth it in the long run but, damn, he needed an editor to rein in his excesses. Sadly, I could never bring myself to read the third Chronicles. Maybe someday...

You should. It was a fantastic ending.

Shadow of the Titanic. Its a fantastic book but an incredibly emotional one too because so often in life, historians dont talk about what happens to people after going through a monumental disaster, well Shadow of the Titanic does. It explores the lives of several passengers and crew to find out how the disaster impacted them in the years after the sinking. Some were so traumatized they never recovered - one chapter talks about how a woman was reunited with her husband after the sinking but it was already too late - she had lapsed into a deep depression and she was institutionalized. Several passengers committed suicide - unable to deal with the memories. Some by jumping from buildings, the back of other ships or blowing their brains out with a gun. Still others became all too happy to relive the disaster over and over, relishing that they were on board the ill fated liner and insisting they were the only authority to really know what happened that dreadful night. So if you want to know what happened and how disasters dont just end on the day they happened, its recommended reading. overall 5/5.

I'm reading the most recently released (like, a week ago) and 21st installment of Victoria Thompson's Gaslight Mystery series. I've had it for 2 days and I am halfway done already. Biggest problem with these is they're fairly short, quick reads, and then I have to wait a whole year for the next one. But they are delightful if you like a good historical mystery novel.
