Paths Not Taken by Simon R Green

Paths Not Taken by Simon R. Green is the 5th Nightside novel. Like the previous ones, the situation is getting more and more unrealistic and unbelievable. In this one, John Taylor is on a quest to find the origins of the Nightside. His powers are growing, as is his ego. This was not my favorite entry in the series plotwise, as it barely advances the story at all. The characters go on such amazing adventures on their way to one tiny clue to the overall story of the series. It's still fun reading, but much like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books, the story doesn't much go anywhere. In fact, I'd compare them in a lot of ways- quick easy reads, insanely unbelievable details, a very slowly advancing plot, and lots of fun.

I started reading A Thousand Splendid Suns last night and so far am loving it.

  1. I totally agree. I like to take the ride thru the Nightshade just because it is so unbelievable and FUN!
