For someone who spends way too much time in front of this screen I do all I can to get away from it. Thus you can see why I am not a fan of e-books. I have an e-reader but it is normally left at home due to my inattention. So when I need to read a book that is only in this format I find myself at the screen. So here is my mini rant. It is not the book, story line, author or any such thing. It is the format. It hurts my eyes. Short and sweet. The glare from the screen is harsh on me. I squint and stare trying to see properly. I can not scan as fast as I can a regular print book either. Speed reading is just out for me with an e-book.
Now past all that I have been blessed with some really good reads in this format. Louisiana Fever is just one of these. It has taken me some time to read due to my inabilities spoken of above. Forgive me D J Donaldson! This is one down home watch out as it grabs you by the scruff of the neck mystery. Yeah, really good. I would tell you grab a copy of the book and hide in your best reading spot so your not disturbed. Donaldson has a unique writing style that not only shows the knowledge of his story line but shares a voice that you know. It is the voice of your neighbor down the street, the local grocer or even you dad sharing his wise advice. Here let me give you the outline too.
