|Crestwood Lake 2: Satan's Revenge by Mark R. Vogel
Fun night discussing Crestwood Lake 2: Satan's Revenge by former SFSNNJ guest speaker Mark R.
Vogel. We had been waiting for the sequel and we were not disappointed. It was fun revisiting
characters we'd liked in the first book and following their responses to signs starting up again in
Crestwood Lake - fear, denial. Crestwood Lake, Vermont had been quiet after the showdown with the
devil and his coven of worshippers in book one. Butch Morgan, Gil Pearson and Vicki are enjoying life
and peace and quiet. Then a series of events slams home their worst fear - Satan and company are
back. You feel emotions with them. Fast read that leaves the door open for further stories to be told in
an organic way in other locations that would not become boring. A lot more to tell in this series. That
the book is about witches, covens and Satan worshipers was an added October bonus. Solid 8-9
scores all around. The only complaint was a rushed ending. If you enjoyed Crestwood Lake - grab the
|Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Lively and engaging discussion about a book that is as relevant today as it was when written over 60
years ago. George made the point that even today there are countries that "censor"
TV/radio/facebook/et al. We talked about how historically people were deliberately not educated so
they were more malleable.
We enjoyed the characters and ageless feel of the book. Aurelia's one complaint was she felt Bradbury,
at times, told the reader what to feel/expect rather than allow the reader to discover on their own.
Overall, well received and provided for a discussion that lasted right up to closing time!
