Book review: “The Explorer”
Reviewed by Todd Porche
This story is mostly taken place on a spaceship going to outer space. This is a mysterious book because already in the first chapter, the author kills all of the crew on the spaceship except the main character, Easton.
When all of the crew of the spaceship die and leave Cormac Easton all by himself, he does the only thing he can do, continue his mission. Easton is not really a trained astronaut because he is a journalist, so he does not really know what he is doing, but he does as much as he can do. Read on through the story to find out what happens to the journalist Cormac Easton as he tries to live on the Ishaguro and fight the inevitability of death.
In my opinion, The Explorer by James Smythe was a good story because it was very suspenseful and it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It was a good read, and I would recommend it to anyone who would be interested in adventure stories.

Luling resident and former coach Bruce McDonald remembers a specific game in 1992 on the prep gridiron, one that made clear to many what he already knew: that his H.L. Bourgeois Braves’ sophomore wide receiver, JaJuan Dawson, was a special player in the making.
