Reading Harbor

Post by EEA » Mon Mar 04, 2013 12:47 am

This is my second time reading Harbor. Is my third favorite book from JAL's books. I still don't understand how the whole thing with Spiritus works. :think: My favorite characters are Simon and Anna-Greta. I still don't like Anders and I want to care about what happens to him but I just can't. This is what happened the first time I read the book. I am on page 200. ;)

Boy, if you don't like Sanders then the story must really be a struggle.

It isn't that much of a struggle. More of I just want to get back to what is going on in Domaro and with Simon and Anna-Gretta. :mrgreen:

I am almost done reading the book. And I just don't like Anders. I just could never identify with his struggle as he search for Maja. And the whole confrontation with Bjorn and Henrik at the end was too easy. I was expecting more, especially about how Spiritus was used.

I have read all of JAL's books. :)
I have LTROI, Harbour, Handling the Undead, Little Star and Let The Old Dreams Die. :mrgreen:
Little Star is JAL's best work so far. :)
Now I am reading Handling The Undead again. :mrgreen:

Well I read whenever I get time. I used to read a lot when I was a kid. Now it feels like there isn't enough free time. ;)

Have you read the short story "Itsy Bitsy"? (it comes with a sample of Handling the Undead & Harbour) - mobi, epub <--- click the link to dl.

I don't think it's actually for sale anywhere, so I don't think I'm doing anything wrong providing people with an opportunity to read it. I wait to be corrected.
