The Unbreakable Code

I found now with reading the second one-off thriller books, that they have very similar qualities. I know, they are done by the exact same author. But just think, why is there always a person in a certain role to take the antagonist side? Well, just a thought anyway. So i hope you have all been sound this last week, because this week i'm taking you back to Dan Brown with his book 'Digital Fortress'. Whoo hoo! All in a days work. Sorry about before, i think i was in a deep idea of thought- i sometimes do that, like most people. But never mind that, you didn't click on this page to hear me babble on about myself- oh no. It's time for the big judgement and whether your in the right mind to try it out afterwards!

Genre: Conspiracy, Thriller
Publisher: Corgi
Year Of Publish: First published 1998
Pages: 512
Of course this would be the UK version. But would you be able to break the unbreakable code?

So i bet you're wondering what is this all about? Well, to start there is a Agency within the US Government called the NSA (National Security Agency but called by some characters by No Such Agency, as it is all hush hush) a woman called Susan Fletcher is called in because there is a unbreakable code which threatens to take the NSA hostage, by a man called Ensei Takado. Of course there is going to be disaster over disaster and soon she will fight for the man that she loves in the end. (i don't really wan't to spoilt it anymore for those who actually do want to read it without my review)

My initial thoughts towards the whole idea of this second book is that, well, it's not really focusing upon the writing style, but more upon the facts. Sorry if you may think differently, but to me it is the truth. The writing style seems to be very, how can i put this, dry. I wasn't very motivated to read it. Which as well, when there is a chase scene in the middle of the book, there were so many chapters dedicated to it, i couldn't wait for it all to end. Simples. (As the meerkat once said) It's just unfortunate as there is a huge focus upon what they are riding and using the actual idea of the plot just fails completely. To be honest it makes me wonder now, making sense that compared to some of the books made into films, i'm so glad it wasn't optioned for one itsself.

Now i look back at this, i feel very guilty as i haven't put a huge amount of positives if any. So therefore i think that the good parts to this is that well there is more to what meets the eye of our own Governments. We probably suspect more that is true without realising, because of the fact that they always deny the truth. This is a good example of something that we miss right in front of us, without actually realising; which they plant on purpose. Overall i give the whole piece of work a 3 stars. I know i have been rating a lot of books at the moment 3 stars it's just i haven't found anything that has actually wowed me recently. In due time i guess.

See you this time next week. Until then, keep calm and carry on.
P.s. I am really excited about the upcoming book 'Heroes Of Olympus: The Blood Of Olympus' which is making it'd first appearance in bookstores today. Make sure you grab the last ever Percy Jackson book. Hopefully it will be a good one! Just Nico, don't die okay?

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 …

Here We Are Now by Jasmine Warga

When I look at 'Here we are now' I think of a fair few things. First of all, there is not many father/daughter relationship type YA books on the market at the moment. Secondly, I thought that it would be interesting to see how such a relationship between father and daughter, with the added stress of the Dad being famous adds to the hype of this type of story.

However, when delving into the book itself, it felt as though it was more about the relationship between her father and mother, rather than the main protagonist herself. In fact, it seemed as though the main character was pushed to the side so much, due to the flashbacks, that it felt as though she was a weak supporting character. To this day, it feels as though I haven't really understood what Taliah (the supposed main character) was all about and her mind processes, that we usually see with other beloved characters.

Throughout the book I had found that for the plot itself, I felt as though it was far too short for a…

Cover Reveal: Miranda's Rights by Lily Luchesi

So merry Christmas to all! With only Christmas Day finally on the horizon! I hope you all remember Lily Luchesi from earlier this year! Where I did a cover reveal and review. You would be glad to know now, that once again I have the priveledge to reveal the cover of the sequel to Stake Out and will be able to review in the new year!

Miranda’s Rights (Paranormal Detectives Book Two) by Lily Luchesi

The dead don’t always rest easy... Retired detective Danny Mancini is haunted by nightmares after he found out that paranormal creatures exist. All he wants is to forget them…especially a certain half-vampire. When cursed werewolves show up trying to kill him, he is forced to go back to the Paranormal Investigative Division for help against a powerful old enemy. What he was not expecting was a dead ex showing back up after twenty-six years.
My own view of the book itself is refreshing. Not only is it a sequel book to the story, Stake-out, but also that by the look of the cover this is definitely…
