First, my obligatory announcement that I’ve put a post up over at the Indie Writer’s Monthly blog. This time, since JJ Abrams is so secretive, I’m speculating on how I see Star Wars Episode VII ending up.
Hint… there will be time travel, and possibly a wind up that involves taking the corpse of the Emperor and using it, Weekend at Bernie’s style, in order to fool Vader into… well, you’d just have to read it for more.
IN OTHER NEWS. I mentioned Clay’s Ark in my last post. Octavia Butler’s novel. I typically don’t do reviews here (that’s what Goodreads is for) but since I mentioned it, I figured I’d fill you in on my verdict.
Bad ending! Bad!
What started out as a very good story about an incurable infection and people trying to make a life for themselves in the post-apocalyptic world she created in the book, it eventually descended into something much darker, and in my opinion, almost indistinguishable from torture porn. I was not pleased.
I read the book outloud to my wife as a compromise so we can both read the story together, but after she fell asleep with about 50 pages left, I finished it off by myself and was stunned at the turn there at the end.
I told her that I did not recommend she finish the book, but just leave the happy memories she has of it untainted.
