Life Support

One after another, Life Support after Harvest. Mysterious symptoms and sudden deaths of healthy retirees. A doctor who starts to get suspicious, digs too much and gets haunted for that.

Idealization of youth can be dangerous. The topic of Life Support is still current and continues to be that. Almost all people want to look younger, wrinkles are frightening and raddled body terrifying. There’s no cure for that,  you just have to accept the course of one’s life. That doesn’t mean you can’t take care of yourself, you must do just that. But not at the expense of other people’s lives.

Life Support, basic medical thriller that doesn’t break any molds. Enjoyable and forgettable.

Chain of Events

Chain of Events, first book of an author Fredrik T. Olsson. Another Swedish author that has written a relatively good thriller.

Fatal code, missing cryptologist, expiration of time. This sounds like something Dan Brown would write. But the fatal code was something else, something new. I’m not going to reveal any details but I must say that the theme in the story of Chain of Events was something I’ve never read before. It was fresh and interesting. Scary too.

On the whole, the story was a basic thriller, fluent, upbeat and full of chains of events. And, as almost every time, the rescue of the world lies in one person’s hands.

Chain of Events was entertaining. It was not the most brilliant thriller in the world, but it fulfilled my expectations and was just what I wanted it to be, good entertainment, suitable for midsummer night.

I hope Fredrik T. Olsson continues to write books. If he does, I will read them.

The Einstein Enigma

This book sounded interesting. It wasn’t. The Einstein Enigma by José Rodrigues Dos Santos was dull, so dull. Page after page a lot of scientific explanation. The book was filled with far more talk than action. Of course there was some action too, kidnapping, torture, complicated relationships and death. But it didn’t save the story.

The only touching part of this book was the part that described the relationship between the hero and his father and the illness of the father.

Some people surely enjoy many long dialogues about matter, energy and cosmology. I didn’t, I’m not THAT interested in these subjects. Not my favourite, not by any means.
