Hi all! It's time for those weekend blog hops once again!
How long does it usually take you to finish a book?
Hmm. That's a bit of a 'how long is a piece of string' question, as it will depend on the book. On average I get through 80-100 pages an hour, but this can drop to around 50 pages for really dense, heavy-going non-fiction, or rise much higher for simple prose and things like mangas and graphic novels. For a standard genre novel of around 300-350 pages, it would be about 2-3 evenings' reading, but it does vary a lot depending on the content.
Vern did not trust humans was the long and short of it. Not a single one.
From page 56:
The era of man was nothing more than a reign of murder and conquest, so far as Vern could see, which was why enjoying human media was about as far as Vern was prepared to go on the whole integration front.
Squib Moreau may be swamp-wild, but his intentions are (generally) good: he really
wants to be a supportive son to his hard-working momma Elodie. But
sometimes life gets in the way - like when Fake Daddy walked out on them
leaving a ton of debt, or when crooked Constable Regence Hooke got to
thinking pretty Elodie Moreau was just the gal for him...
apprenticeship with the local moonshine runner, servicing the bayou,
looks like the only way to pay off the family debts and maybe get Squib
and his momma a place in town, far from Constable Hooke's unwanted
courtship and Fake Daddy's reputation.
Unfortunately for Squib,
Hooke has his own eye on that very same stretch of bayou - and neither
of them have taken into account the fire-breathing dragon hiding out in
the Louisiana swamp...
