Crow Girl and Hunger Fire

Erik Axl Sund’s  Crow Girl was the first part and Hunger Fire the second part of a trilogy.  I read Crow Girl a while a go and Hunger Fire last week.

When I started to read Crow Girl I wasn’t able to let it out of my hands, it was so good and intense. The book left the story unfinished and I had to wait to get the second part from the library. Eventually I did.

Both books are suspenseful, intense, dark and twisted and I liked them very much. The authors manage to tell you about these horrible things (abuse and violence) without feasting with blood and extreme details about the events. The narration is fluent and there’s nothing extra, no purposeless details. In other words you enjoy reading.

The second part wasn’t as exciting as the first one. I wondered why and I came to the conclusion that I knew the book wouldn’t end the story, it would leave it incomplete. It was intense and exciting, but it was the middle book, it didn’t contain the finale, the thrilling ending.

I have to wait for the third and final part, Pythia’s Instructions.

I’m on the waiting list.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

I had to see The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, because I’d seen all the previous parts too. My son gave me a sneak peak of what the movie was about, but I had no exact idea.

Visually this movie, as others before, was amazing. Still, it’s my least favorite of the Hobbit-trilogy. Two other movies had some kind of a story, this was just battle.

I have no idea how the story really ends, I haven’t read the book. Some have said that it’s different from the original ending. I can’t say anything about that.

The good thing in all these movies is the performance of Martin Freeman as young Bilbo Baggins. I also like Ian McKellen as Gandalf. Oh, and Smaug has a lovely voice, doesn’t he (I happent to like a Benedict Cumberbatch).

I went, I saw it, it ended the story, I’m going to forget it. Sorry.
