100 Book Project: Book #82 - Pass.

2012: The War for Souls by Whitley Streiber (2007)

I think if I had read this book before 2010 or 2012 I might have liked it, but because it was written in 2007, it missed a lot of the social and cultural changes that  swept the world between 2007 and 2012 (and now) which made this book incredibly hard for me to read.

 Also, I'm allergic to horrifyingly unpredictable aliens, violence and apocalypse (in general) so this book was appetizing to me as a steak is to a vegetarian.  

I feel like a met a nice person, an interesting person, but at the wrong time and in the wrong place.  Whitley Streiber is a creative writer who can whip readers into a page turning frenzy that steals hours at a time. I would read other books by him, but I wouldn't pass this book on.
