Review: Strange Weather

Strange WeatherStrange Weather by Joe Hill

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I might go closer to 3.5 but I’m gonna round up to four. My favorite story was the first one by a long shot. The Polaroid man was such a cool concept for a villain. I wish I could’ve learned more about his history and about the metal that made his camera, especially at the end when the melted metal spoke. It almost sounded like the voice of Sauron in my head. Like the one ring was melted down and turned into a camera.

The second story was disturbing but was also incredibly well written and politically charged.

The stories in order of favorite to least favorite goes 1,2,4,3. I just couldn’t get into Aloft. It had some vivid imagery and great backstory but I just couldnt get into it. It was the only story that had a moment where I was bored.

Snapshot, Loaded, and Rain were non-stop action and thrills.

Loaded had the best characters of the three. Snapshot was the most original with the most potential and the coolest villain concept.

Rain had its ups and downs but I was never bored.
