Buddy Read – The Troop

The fine folks at Book Lair are doing a buddy read of the book The Troop, by Nick Cutter.

I won’t be participating as I don’t own a copy just yet (shame on me, I know!) and have plenty of stuff to read and review, but feel free to join them, just click the link above.

Happy reading, hope you have a great monday!


The Troop
by Nick Cutter

Synopsis: Boy Scouts live by the motto “Be Prepared.” However, nothing can prepare this group of young boys and their scoutmaster for what they encounter on a small, deserted island, as they settle down for a weekend of campfires, merit badges, and survival lessons.

Everything changes when a haggard stranger in tattered clothing appears out of nowhere and collapses on the campers’ doorstep. Before the night is through, this stranger will end up infecting one of the troop’s own with a bioengineered horror that’s straight out of their worst nightmares. Now stranded on the island with no communication to the outside world, the troop learns to battle much more than the elements, as they are pitted against something nature never intended…and eventually each other.

Day 68 – New book review format

As you may have noticed in my most recent review post Line of Descent, the new format for book reviews is now operative.

I took the feedback from the different polls and came up with a simple way to show the cover (still linking to the GR book page) on the left and, on the right, all sorts of info like title, author, genres, format, length, source and rating. All the other information and way to present it remains the same.
