That's not all that's going on, though. Jessie has voices speaking to her, a stray dog who is desperately hungry, and a possibly malevolent presence… Continue reading Gerald’s Game by Stephen King | Book Review

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch | Book Review

WOW. This is one hell of a novel. Without giving too much of this incredible story away, the book follows a man named Jason Dessen, a married father who is a physics professor at a local university.
