The Hazards of Working at a Bookstore Vol. 2.4 Part 3

Okay, third and final part. However, not sure when you'll see this as I'm still having trouble posting my blogs at home even though I can type them up and save them.

First is Are You Going to Kiss Me Now? by Sloane Tannen. This is a teen novel about a girl who is a writer and wins a trip to go interview a bunch of celebs. Her plan goes down on a desert island where she is now stranded with 5 stereotypical hollywood star types. Somehow she is able to post on her iPhone about their amusing adventures as they try to survive and hopefully get rescued. Sounds fun!

Second is One Second After by William R. Forstchen. This is a book I saw when straightening the fiction section at the store. Instead of nuclear war, the weapon of choice is an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP), and it defeats the United States. This weapon will take us back to the Dark Ages, before the invention of electricity. The reviews of this say that it is something that we might actually have to worry about, as our enemies may already have this. Again, a really interesting sounding storyline.

Third and the final for this volume is All the Lives He Led by Frederik Pohl. This is a science fiction book. In this, there is a theme park in 2079 at the site of Pompeii, 2000 years after it's last eruption. It is still unstable and could erupt at any time. A big celebration is planned in honor of the 2000 year anniversary, and there are terrorists who are thinking to use this to their advantage.
