An Echo in the Bone. CBR Review #4.

Cannonball Read Book #4! It’s taken me almost a week to write this because honestly, what is there to say? Here’s my honest review: 

“It’s Outlander. If you’ve read the first six? Keep going. If you haven’t? Don’t start here.” 

Hard to stretch that out over 250 words though, so here’s some random… 

My review reminds me of Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. (Stay with me…) My husband and I used to listen religiously to Doug Loves Movies. (We still listen sometimes on road trips, but it became less of a “must listen” once the Leonard Maltin app was no longer being updated. Because he stopped playing the Leonard Maltin Game™). My husband and I see a movie a week, if not more. We love movies (both together and individually – we’re not one person and I don’t mean to indicate that we only collectively love movies) and so DLM and the Leonard Maltin Game are right up our alley. Regardless, back to Leonard Maltin and the game. See here and here for the rules of the Leonard Maltin Game, which are slightly complicated to just explain without seeing it in action and I don’t have time for that. (Sidenote: Doug Loves Movies has its own wiki? Who knew? Second sidenote: The wiki is pretty underwhelming and apparently you can start a wiki for anything?) The only important point to know is that part of the game involves reading part of the short review of a movie on the app to give clues to help the players guess. The review for Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleased presented a problem when it came up, however. Why? Because the entire review is “It is what it is.” Not super helpful in the way of getting someone to figure out the movie, huh? But now Scooby-Doo 2 has become shorthand in our house.  

So yes, Echo in the Bone – it is what it is.
