Fever Dream (Pendergast, #10)Fever Dream by Douglas Preston

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


Fever Dream could have been a good book. The central premise -- that Pendergast finds out his dead wife was murdered, seeks revenge on her killers, and goes on to discover secrets she kept from him -- is intriguing, and there are a few good set-pieces, such as a car chase through a Louisiana swamp. And Preston & Child aren't terrible authors; I enjoyed the two Diogenes-featuring novels in this series, albeit only by ignoring a lot of extraneous words that were probably meant to sound clever.

Cut for length. )

YES HELLO I AM DOG

I draw and sometimes upload stuff to my art blog and/or ~extra-fancy~ PORTFOLIO art blog. I infrequently write fanfics. Also I like to read.

This blog is currently 10% locked writing stuff and 90% inactivity. I do more stuff over on tumblr.

This journal is sometimes locked when I'm talking about real life stuff. I'm fairly free and easy about giving people access, so shoot me a PM or comment to an entry or send me a messenger pigeon if you want in.
