  • "Bordering on brilliant"

    Overall

    I first came across Neil Gaiman when I took the Kids to see Coraline. Wow even my wife was scared. It was fantastic. Then I came across American Gods. Probably the best book I have ever read. So... My expectations were very high and i was almost bound to be disappointed. Sadly I was. this is a very good book and the story is interesting and very clever. His play on place names is brilliant and the story shocks, amuses and draws you in. So what was wrong. Nothing. My only complaint was the characters did not have the depth of those in America Gods and I wanted them to.

    It really is a pleasure to listen to and if you can enjoy this then go to American Gods.

    Under the streets of London there's a world most people could never even dream of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels, and pale girls in black velvet. Richard Mayhew is a young businessman who is about to find out more than he bargained for about this other London. A single act of kindness catapults him out of his safe and predictable life and into a world that is at once eerily familiar and yet utterly bizarre.

    When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case.Strike is a war veteran - wounded both physically and psychologically - and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model's complex world, the darker things get - and the closer he gets to terrible danger...

    How could I enjoy this so much? Great question. So not my thing. well it clearly was I loved it. it was witty and brilliantly annoying. The main characters were so flawed and quirky.
    the narration was excellent and enhanced the humour greatly.
    Generally a light easy read I can only say it was a pleasure and it will remain as a book to return to if I am ever feeling blue and just want to feel nice and warm in side.

    Berlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed - no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen.

An uproariously funny novel of modern life, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is a triumphant return of our favourite Everywoman.

    When we experience something, usually the sharper end of the memory captures the images of that experience. It is the subconscious that tells us what images to adopt. Later on, if we delve deeper into these retained images, we may be able to re-live the experience, especially when there are regrets in the first place. They re-tell us the essence of that experience, which is the most touching and important part of it, and will stay with us in our mind for an substantial amount of time.
