Today's Summer Lovin' Read-a-thon Challenge Post is brought to us by Meagan at Reviewing Wonderland!
What is the Page 99 Test, you ask? Pick a book that you have not read, turn to page 99. Read the page. Once you've done that, give a synopsis of that page and tell us - based only on that page - if you want to read the book. Easy peasy, right?
Things to remember - no spoilers and no plagiarism.
Let's do this thing! Read it... did it contain any good teasers? Does it make you want to read it now? Next? Never? Let me know!
I went the shelf at work and pulled off a book I'm not sure I even want to read. Now, however...
In Darkness by Nick Lake
I turned to page 99 and it was obvious there was a sick or injured man, perhaps dying. It seemed there was little to no hope for him to make a full recovery. He then is killed, not by a gun, but my a machete, because bullets cost money.
It's a dark and gritty part of the story and I can definitely see myself reading this.
What's your page 99 test results?
