    the chief of police is in the middle of a divorce and having an affair when his girlfriend gets murdered. All sign point to the murderer being him. He needs to stay one step ahead of his detective. Its a suspenseful action packed movie., I really enjoyed it.

    a cute but kind of strange movie. A church going teacher who does all good is the one responsible for killing "bad" people. Interesting watch but not one of my favorite movies though.

  • Aru Shah and the end of time by Chokshi, Roshani,
    ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

    *I posted this review for the ebook, but I also comment on the audio version which I enjoyed simultaneously so I thought I'd post here as well.  I thought the ebook and the audio were both good, deserving a three stars.**

    Aru is what a lot of people might call...well, a liar.  She’s constantly making up stories to impress other kids, lying to fit in, and even fibbing to herself to make her life seem a little better than it really is.  But is she really a liar, or does she just have a vivid imagination?  

    This is an engaging adventure story about a middle school aged girl who ends up accidentally starting an apocalypse that can only be stopped by her and her new soul sister, Mini.  The girls are Pandavas, or children of gods, and in order to save the world they must embark on a dangerous quest through the Otherworld to collect the celestial weapons they need to accomplish this task - before the ominous Sleeper gets to them.  Otherwise, the Lord of Destruction will be released, and life as Aru and Mini know it will cease to exist.

    I read this ebook on hoopla while listening along to the audio version on the Libby app.  The reader for the audio is good, a bit whiny and overly dramatic at times, but fun to listen to while reading along.

    If you like Rick Riordan’s books, or any related books such as Rebecca Roanhorse’s Race to the Sun, then you’ll love this series.  (And if you haven't read those, check out all of the Riordan available on audio through Libby!) And try Seasons of Splendour by Madhur Jaffrey, or Nanji and Corr’s Indian Tales: A Barefoot Collection if you want some background on India and the mythology in the series.
