Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Deep by Nick Cutter

Stephen King on mind altering drugs is what first came to mind when I got into this book.   It is dark and disturbing.

The world is impacted by an apparent mental disorder, the "Gets".    Luke and Clayton Nelson,  estranged brothers are the key players in this bizarre book.  Luke is damaged but reasonably normal.   Clay, a savant, is flat out impossible to describe.  Narcissism does not begin to describe his self centered egotism.  

Al Sykes is Luke's Navy minder and appears to be accepting of the abnormality featured in the book.   The world is pinning its hopes on Clay's work in the depths of the ocean. (thus the Deep)   Lunacy is prevalent in the book as well as all manner of psychopathic behavior.   Considering the way Luke and Clay were raised, psychology aberrant behavior would be expected as opposed to not.

I found the book hard to read and did not enjoy it.


 This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
