The Theseus Paradox by David Videcette
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
We more or less start the booking with things that we more or less know about 7/7 and then we are taken on a rollercoaster ride / a race against time in some ways. The middle of the book you are sort of like yeah this is a story I am really enjoying it and by the end you are er hang on what if this is the truth!?
DI Jake Flannagan is a maverick but a likable one, drinks to much, has too many one night stands all instead of facing up with what we are dealing with. But we all have our vices don’t we!?
I liked how at one point to move the story on, Jake loses time but it’s put down to sex drugs and rock and roll. Which is believable!
The author has launched his career with a story that we know something about the event and he himself worked on it, I just hope that books to follow are as enjoyable as you can only write about 7/7 events once and put one theory on the table!?
I can see the author sitting with the official secrets act when he wrote this working out what he could include and what he couldn’t!
Very enjoyable and I look forward to hearing what happened to some of the other characters mentioned in this story! Because I am more or less hooked!

So yesterday was a bad day 😦
So I spent yesterday struggling with MS and my legs again, a girl at work told me she was too hot and I proceeded to come back from the toilets to offer her my jumper, as I just got all confused and then spent the next x trying to work out why I had offered my jumper if she was too cold!
Then came the bad news that one of my work colleagues has cancer for the 2nd time, and that broke my heart and I wanted to cry! Because the last person who I knew who had Cancer for the 2nd time being it breast cancer died, I was like I am not going to cry until she has left work at least, but I managed to hold off and I still haven’t cried! But thinking about the other person who died just breaks my heart and I was a bit like my MS is bad again cause it’s Winter time and now I am being told someone else has cancer again! 😦 So yesterday no writing was done and I pretty much sucked! Having only got the chocolate next to me now!
On the writing front, I went to a talk today by an author at the library in Nottingham, which was really interesting! And I have also been asked to review this guys book! Does that mean I am a proper blogger now? They have sadly only sent me the kindle version but it’s a start!
As for my writing career I sent the guy who did my creative writing course the first bit of the story I am writing at the moment! And asked him if he would read it and tell me what he thinks as it’s what I am looking to submit to the mentoring thing!
So tonight, chocolate fingers, location work for my story and sleep possibly! The sleep probably will win over everything else!
