#53 - Still Life With Crows

by Douglas Preston

I enjoyed this book, although I won’t say I loved it. It’s set in Kansas, where a series of rather bizarre killings in a small farming town coincides with the arrival of some folks who want to plant genetically-engineered corn. Agent Pendergast (featured in other books by these authors) shows up to investigate. I’m giving it a high rating because it was a page-turner, and pulled me in right away and kept me reading. I found the ending a bit unsatisfying, though. That didn’t spoil that I enjoyed the rest of it though, it just means I’m not likely to want to read it again. I also found that, while it was a bit creepy at times, it wasn’t too scary for me (and I can be a wimp about horror books, which is why I rarely read them any more, after too many Stephen King-induced sleepless nights), and by the end, I’d stopped being scared at all. 8/10, and I’ve heard that other books in this series are even better, so I’ll probably hunt up a few of those, too.
