The Keep, by F. Paul Wilson

  • Title:  The Keep
  • Author: F. Paul Wilson

This has been on my to-read list for years, but was never available at my local libraries.  However, during Amazon's prime days I bought a new kindle paperwhite which gave me $5 in kindle credit.  The Keep had dropped to $2.99 so I was able to get it for free.

Turns out to be seasonably appropriate, since it is a horror/adventure novel.  I enjoyed it, particularly the first half or so which is very good.  Got a bit dumber as the book went on, but still a fun read and I'd go through more of Wilson's books if they were available from the library.

One note about the paperwhite -- I bought it wanting something I could read in the sun since every other device I have is useless in direct light.  It works as advertised for that purpose, but I was shocked at how cheap it feels and how slow it is compared to even my original Kindle Fire (now 10 years old).  I'm happy with it for the price I paid on Prime Day, but still, really feels like a cheaply made device.
