Daily Digest- Arctic Chill Part 2

Only made it through a few more pages last night- up to 75ish. Still not comfortable with the pace of this book. I feel like Indridason is trying to cram too much into the beginning, like phone calls to Erlender from Eva Lind and Valgedur. Seems like he threw those in just for us to be able to keep tabs on those characters. I don't need an update on them, I trust he will get to them at some point.

As far as the story goes, I'm curious why it seems no one really knows the boy and his family well. It's as if the victim, Elias, was a ghost. His neighbors, classmates, and even his father don't seem to know much about him...sad.

What an interesting idea, reviewing a book as you read it. I wonder if you'll change your mind about the book as you go along. It will be interesting for the author to follow your thoughts. When I know a new review of my book is coming out, I am always impatient to see it. What fun to get immediate feedback like this.

It's been fun so far! I know that I often change my opinion of a book as I read it. What have you written?

Forklift extensions are some of the most useful forklift accessories, as they make the forks of your forklift longer. There are also a number of accessories that can customize the Workmaster and Stockmaster platforms. e. Management of yard - number of trucks offloaded, materials received correctly on system matched against what the plan was as most companies have a schedule that suppliers have to fit into.
