Portable Magic

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Creed ★★★★☆

Creed - James Herbert

I am so sad that I have spent so many years in complete ignorance of James Herbert. I expect to make up for lost time by catching up on the backlog. Probably all on audio, because Damian Lynch is a genius narrator.


Creed was fun, fun, fun. Loved the unapologetically crass, selfish, amoral main character. Loved the mix of horror and humor. Loved that the story kept me guessing as to what was real and not real. Highly recommend.
