A Book of the Week Review by Jocelyn
The Doll – Rex Sparger
Well, it’s finally happened. Your Hardcover Honey has become one of those annoying geeks working on a laptop in public, iced coffee at hand. With my husband cramming two years of continuing ed into two days using our trusty desktop and my son addicted to the shrill joys of “Regular Show” on Cartoon Network, even this smooth jazz and calls of “Strawberry Smoothie for Carla!” here at Panera are more conducive to work this morning.
Although…….people are looking at me a little strangely. Could it be my battered paperback of this week’s read “The Doll” that is causing some concern? Understandable! That cover image certainly is a keeper and has stayed with me long after the details of the book have fled my memory. The second in my re-read of Dark Forces books was another successful experiment as it was a one-day read, yet neatly encapsulated all kinds of stuff I find scary (dolls, country fairs, out of control horses……..religion)!
