A Few Great Reads

Having our kids receive Kindle Fires for Christmas this year has prompted a new reading amongst us all.  Amazon routinely has daily deals for cheaper prices on ebooks, as well as tons of free books.  In addition to reading on a Kindle, you can also download apps to read on your PC or other devices.

These are the two books I have read since Christmas Day and both were exciting and enjoyable, keeping my attention through out the entire book.  I hope you enjoy them as well!

The Venom of Vipers
by K.C.May

A book set in the future where humans and becoming extinct from disease and turn to creating a new sub species of humanoid to try and cure the rest of the world.  Told as a friendship between a human and one of the new species, this novel is gripping and enjoyable through each twist and turn.

The Handmaids Tale
By Margaret Atwood

Set in the near future, this book deals with anti feminist views brought on by feminists who settled for freedom 'from' rather than freedom 'to.'  As the United States has been abolished and war has broken out all over, the story is told from the perspective of a young women whose life has changed immeasurably, who has lost not only her way of life, but her family as well.  She is located in a peaceful center within an area that used to be Detroit, but all around are unstable areas.  She is locked into a life of privilege, of sorts, but without personal freedoms.  Highly poignant personal thoughts and feelings are conveyed clearly and distinctly through this no nonsense diary of sorts.
