Meteorite Deceit

Yes! It's that time. I have read my very first Dan Brown book. Amazing. I think i have came away thinking more about what is happening in the world than any other. Fantastic! This is truly what i would say is a masterpiece, every detail refined to perfection. I believe that i have learnt so much, and it has made me think on how oblivious i am to the world and what type of scandals go on behind our backs.

Genre: Techno-Thriller, Conspiracy
Publisher: Corgi
Year Of Publish: 2001
Pages: 592

Deception is in the air, can you feel it?
 
But of course as ever the criticisms will be involved within this review. Although today i'm in quite a good mood, so that would probably make the rating higher than intended. Beware! I have decided that i'm going to start it off with how much success that this author has already without me saying anything. First of all, he has two film adaptations based upon his work and he is having another based upon his fourth book 'Inferno' which is due for release in 2015. But not only this, his main character within that series, 'Robert Langdon' is portrayed by the actor Tom Hanks. Who if you already know has been in many films such as: Forrest Gump; Saving Mr Banks; Philadelphia; Saving Private Ryan; Toystory and Captain Phillips. So, i guess very well known. (A little bit of an understatement)

Onto the Criticisms!

It is a huge book. From when i first began the novel to when i had finally finished it, it took around 11 days to complete. Way out of my normal reading routine! When looking at books this huge you sort of become a little demotivated. But i got through it and survived- at least that is a postitive thing. I may have wondered a bit with my mind whilst reading the book, because in some places it did feel like the type of writing style you get from from free ebooks. But don't worry I'm going now onto the positives. Yay!

Positives! 

Well it definitely gives some revelant information. I learnt quite a bit, which you just know from reading alot , you don't always get well detailed books that you could take to the bank! But this, well it would be easy to remember points made. Maybe I'll even remember this for a very long time!Although the main point about this is that it wasn't something that i would normally read, therefore by trying out Dan Brown himself, it has made me think twice at giving all these well recognised authors a shot. (I'm quite mean, i tend to like the hidden jewels!)

Overall, i found that i am definitely going to carry on with reading the other five books, which at the moment it is Digital Fortress so that will be interesting to see if it's better than the last. I just hope that it doesn't all go down hill from here! My final rating for this book is 4 stars- very generous today!

Once again, it's that time to say goodbye. But don't worry, it's less than a week till you hear from me again. I'm not going anywhere yet!

Midsummer's Bottom by Darren Dash

Hello everyone. This week I am going to be reviewing a book which is a little bit more light-hearted and hilarious to the point that chaos ensues. It is based on the work of William Shakespeare, to the point that the original characters such as Puck, Oberon and Titania have roles, but there are new characters which act out the story, but in the way that the originals believe to be the best. However, these new characters do not know anything about this, which makes the twists and turns of chaos to become quite entertaining.

First of all, for those who know of Darren Dash's other pseudonym which deals with children's books should not read this book. The content is for the mature reader, it is clearly shown how it has been written.

I think that the best part about this book is that when starting to read it, having no previous knowledge about the certain Shakespeare's play of A Midsummer Night's Dream, I thought that I would be put off the concept. However, after a few of…

The Gods have spoken! - Mythos by Stephen Fry

I love mythology. That is a fact that many people know in my life. So when I found out that the brilliant mind of Stephen Fry was going to write a book on Greek mythology, I couldn't have been more ecstatic. In three words: perfect bedtime stories.

Did it excel my expectations?

Well, I guess that you could say yeah.

I understand that some people did not like the way that it was written in such simple 'Fry way'. But I found that much more funny.

You see, I find that there is nothing better than drama. In fact, as social beings we all have a certain feel about it. It is something that breathes life within all of us.


You see, you can feel the absolute significance of why a book like this should be read. It brings us back to a time where stories of such marvellous wonders exist. That there is hope out there. That there is a reason why certain events happen as they do.

A reason. That is all we need to keep going on.

So, as I began reading Mythos, it took me back to a time when …

Conditional Love by Cathy Bramley

So hi. Sorry for such a huge period of time where i was absent. There are several reasons as to why that is, personal as well as other big points. Anyway, i'm back and hopefully that means that i will be back for a while, before i may be noticeably absent once again.

Today i have a nice book to come back to this blog. It is called 'Conditional Love' and written by an author from Nottinghamshire called Cathy Bramley.

As you can see the awful picture that i took of this book doesn't really show the homely beauty of the book cover in person. The illustration really identifies what the story is all about - a woman with the aim of getting her dream home. It really shows this with the fact that there is a light on downstairs in the house, a warm hearth.

So because of the fact that somehow i have "connections" with this author, she was very kind in sending various amount of goodies back last year. This included this book, as a signed copy, as well as other books i s…
