A Plague Tale is a stealth horror video game set in 1348 in France. That’s the time of the hundred year war and when the black death visited western Europe. Probably not a good game to play during a pandemic, but what the heck.
I read books, play video games, and watch TV. I have opinions about most of what I consume that way. And I like to write those opinions down.
However, I find reviews saying ‘I love it’ or ‘I hate it’ pretty useless, so I do things differently. Instead, I try to look at why something does or does not work for me. Are the characters internally consistent? Does the plot make sense? What writing smells does the story have.
That way, you know not just if I liked it, but it should help you determine if you will like it. I hope.
Blackbirds is the first Miriam Black novel by Chuck Wendig. I recently listened to the audio book.
