A Creative Life

Toasty fire, feet up and Read a Book

At this time of the year, when it is cold and dismal outside, there is nothing better than a warm fire, your Pj’s on, curled up in your favourite chair, reading a book.   Below are reviews of the two books that I have recently read.

Both are written by Dane Cobain, an independent poet, musician, storyteller and social media marketer who lives in Buckinghamshire UK.  Dane has a passion for language and learning.

Come on Up to the House is a Novella.  Dane wrote the play in the Spring of 2010, during his second year of University.  The Novella was written 6 years later.    This was a really interesting book.   It was good to read the novella, and then read again as it is laid out as a screenplay.

The story, written by Dane, tell of Darran Jersey, a troubled teenager who moves into a house.   The building is also inhabited by the malevolent spirit of his predecessor.     As time goes by and the family begins to settle, Darran takes on more and more of the qualities of James, the dead teenager who committed a bloody suicide.    After  tragedy after tragedy threatens the family, and to destroy the same, Alice, Darran’s mothers, decides to leave the house and make a fresh start.   Is it too late?

I will leave you to read and find out.   I would highly recommend.  It was nice to see the differences as well as the similarities between the play and the novella.   Interesting read.

You can buy a copy of this book at Amazon for £ 7.99 Paperback or £2.86 Kindle

 Come On Up to the House Dane Cobain

The second book I have recently read is again by Dane Cobain.  This was an exciting read with an interesting ending.  Not my normal type of book to buy but I thoroughly enjoyed the same.

This thriller, was fun,  full of tech and death.

Based around Dan Roberts, who starts a new job at Former.ly, it details about his work within this company.  He has no idea what he is getting into when he joins.  The site deals in death with its users sharing their innermost thoughts.  These are stored privately until they die.  The posts are then shared with the world, often with unexpected consequences.

However, something strange is going on and the site’s two erratic founders, share a dark secret.  A secret that people are willing to kill for.

I found that once I started to read this book, I could not put it down.    Thoroughly enjoyed reading this.

You can get a copy for your kindle here at a cost of £Free of £7.57 as a paperback
