Non Review of Trash

Book not finished.

I read a book last week which was probably the 162 book I have read for review.

I will not name the author of or the title of the novel. If I did name names and review this manuscript, it would be all negative.

Either the author did not get the proper training or was put on the wrong track by uninformed advisers.

I completed the story of a woman who slept with the milkman for dairy products she could not afford. She slept with a teenage gardener, because she loved his body and didn’t have the money to pay him. And she had sex with the Fedex man to get her free deliveries.

Then she fell in love with a police officer because he was attentive but continued he sex ventures with her debtors. Obviously this woman character and the female author are disturbed. The character, according to the author, had a tough life which led to her whore-ship.

You’ll never know the author or the title unless you have access to my Amazon purchases.

Sorry, there is no review this week, because what I read was trash.

Review of Cutting Edge

Cutting Edge, A Love Story

Starring D.B. Sweeney and Mora Kelly

I have watched this movie a number of times and still enjoyed the ending. The story up to it is conflict between the two partnered figure skaters who are put together because of their situations.

Mora plays a spoiled prime Doña of the figure skating world and Sweeney’s character is an unwanted hockey player. Their personalities conflict at the beginning into a rivalry to show which is best.

When the respect of each other’s abilities leads to love, they have a major conflict. They each realize their need for one another which leads to a climatic end result.

On the ice, they find each other with a joining result after each finds the best in each other.

Review of Confessions of a Caffeine Addict

Confessions of a Caffeine Addict

40 Stories edited by Marina Kushner

Reviewed by Roy Murry, author.

By the time I finished this book, I had at least a hundred caffeine drinks: coffee and Pepsi. I am overstating my consumption. My caffeine intake is much less.

The stories in these ‘I did it,’ the people are candid about their addictions. And it seems that one must first accept the addiction to come it.

Each addict had their starting and ending points, if they were as candid as it seems. Some had returned to their consuming ways and rehabbed out to normality. But that lurking need remained until they found an inner epiphany.

Overcoming a need that is a habit, for these tales of insecurity prevailed throughout. It was the realization that the body functions better without a ridiculous amount of caffeine. This turned things around for many.

All in all, the stories were insightful, but not compelling enough to dilute one’s addiction. I feel that a life’s story a la biography would be more compelling.

Each story is an interesting read and done in such a way that you can read a few stories with your morning coffee, or not. The book costs as much as a Starbucks Latte. You decide which you need most.
