The Girl from Hollywood

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

This is pure pulp!! I think it was written as a serial in a magazine. Some parts the chapter beginnings seem disjointed. However, this is still a fun summer read.

The book is anti drug and anti city life. The way to go is to live a clean life on a cattle ranch. Riding horses is the ultimate diversion. Forget the heroine or morphine! Even drinking whisky is frowned upon. Here the good guy is so good while the bad Mexicans and whisky runners are deplorable.

The book even ends with a twist ending!

Not a literary achievement but a fun read that has the word "sensational" written all over it!

Fantômas

by Pierre Souvestre

What a fun read! Now I have no choice but to read the next book of Fantomas! The disguises and the escapes from the police are so far fetched that its fascinating! One can not take this seriously- pure enjoyment.

The Horror at Red Hook

by H.P. Lovecraft

I live close to Red Hook Brooklyn so this was interesting to read. Red Hook at the time of the writing seemed like an immigrant haven.
Now its a very trendy neighborhood.

In terms of a story- this was a bit much and appeared to be a reaction to the immigration that was coming into Red Hook at the time. The story was very much like a fear of the new people- their culture, language ect. However, as a Lovecraft short story its very much in line with this style but not one of his best.

The Abandoned Room

by Wadsworth Camp

I had to keep reminding myself that this was wriiten in 1917! Very good book. It did keep me up late and guessing. It was spooky at times but towards the end I just wanted to know what happened. Nice twist.
