I am almost finished with The Reckoning. It has been really absorbing although the middle section…entitled The Boneyard…was really difficult to read. Pete Banning is a semi wealthy landowner who kills some one…without any apparent reason. Pete walks into this man’s office and just shoots him. He’s arrested of course but won’t talk about it or do anything to explain why he did this. He is a kind and loving man…a war hero…and his actions have no explanation. That’s the first part of the book. The middle part is about his capture and torture and escape from Japanese soldiers. This was the hard part to read. Now I am in the last part and it’s about why Pete did what he did. Again…I have not read a John Grisham book in years but I was drawn to this one. I need to know the why of Pete’s actions. I will finish this today.
I love the books that Gregory Funaro has written. I have read and loved his first two books. They are magical and eerie and fantastic. Everything a young reader might love in a book.
His newest one is different…different characters…different places but it’s every bit as good! I love MG books! This book looks perfect for this time of year…that kind of scary orangish background.
I feel the need for something warm and cozy after I finish these two…but I am not sure what to choose…maybe one of these?
Have a great Wednesday! It’s very cold here! Brrrrrrrr!
