#63: Tabatha by Neil Gibson (Early Review)

Luke works as a mailman in Los Angeles and moonlights as a thief - the empty houses on his postal route are rich, easy pickings for him and his friends. Everything goes as planned until one house turns out to not quite be so empty. The situation spirals out of control, leaving the happy-go-lucky thieves battling for their lives. And all because of Tabatha.

REVIEW:
Not for kids.
It was twisted and disturbing, but I loved that. I was initially drawn into the description of this postal worker being a thief. I thought that in itself was something I hadn't read before, but wondered what was with the title, Tabatha. My question was answered pretty quickly, though that it when this heist story turns very, very dark and gritty.
Think the Saw movies.
Yep, that is what first came to my mind. Very cool. It had more mixed in to make it cooler than Saw, but you have to read it to find out what that is. My lips are sealed.
Horror fans, don't miss out on this one.

5/5

  2. Hmm, not sure about the disturbing part, but a mailman that moonlights as a thief kind of makes sense!

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
