Noble Vision / Behind the Voice (books 72 and 73)

Noble Vision / Gen LaGreca

synopsis – A beautiful ballerina. A gifted neurosurgeon. A tragic accident. And a meddling, incompetent government healthcare system. Will the ballerina ever dance on stage again? Will the neurosurgeon be locked away for defying the system? And will the system inevitably implode under its own political idiotology?

reaction – A political medical thriller with a heavy-handed political message. Stereotypical characters and plenty of repetitive dialogue. This story has twists and turns and a fast-paced, suspenseful third act. But at the end, several plot holes and an annoying, eye-rolling epilogue made me grimace. This book is for those who are anti-ACA, or who are in the mood for a fun, silly read.

recommendation – You’re taking your chances with this hit and miss book.

Behind the Voice / Cassi Gray

synopsis – Cordelia ends up alone on an unmoving elevator. Or rather, she’s the only person in the elevator… but there’s also a disembodied voice talking to her. It even knows her name. Does this voice belong to somebody behind the elevator wall? Is it the voice of a spirit… or demon? Is it the voice of her panicked mind? Or is it something even more mysterious? But now Cordelia has more pressing matters to contend with – the elevator is violently lurching in the elevator shaft…

reaction – The book starts out engaging and humorous. When the voice pops up, the story shifts into a more introspective mood. The major events of the story aren’t explained, and the characters other than Cordelia seem to be little more than blank slates. Awkward, clumsy sentences here and there. An eye-rolling, out-of-this-world conclusion which didn’t really conclude anything. A quick read exploring a disturbing “what if” scenario.

recommendation – You’re taking your chances with this hit and miss book.

  1. This made me think of a candid-camera show I once saw. They set up a fake elevator where passengers would walk in and the doors would close normally, then the floor would lurch and the lights go out. In the darkness, a girl made up as a ghost would sneak in through a hidden panel. Moments later the ’emergency lighting’ would come on inside the elevator cab, revealing the ‘ghost’ to the terrified passengers. The girl would then let out a blood-curdling scream just to boost their panic levels right over the top. Does this plot sound familiar?

  2. lol Yep. I’ve wondered about the safety of those types of shows – what if someone has a heart attack or pulls out a gun? But I have to admit one of my favorite shows is Impractical Jokers. With every episode, my stomach aches from laughing so hard… XD
