It begins with absence and desire. It begins with blood and fear. It begins with a discovery of witches. Diana Bishop, a young scholar and descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she must navigate with a vampire, Matthew Clairmont. This manuscript, Ashmole 782, holds the secrets of their past...and the key to their future.

Rubbish book. Almost exactly the same as twilight but with different characters. Boy meets girl, boy is vampire.... and so on.

They say 'live every day as if it's your last' - but you never actually think it's going to be. At least I didn't. The thing is, you don't get to know when it happens. You don't remember to tell your family that you love them or - in my case - remember to say goodbye to them at all. But what if, like me, you could live your last day over and over again? Could you make it perfect? If your whole life flashed before your eyes, would you have no regrets? Or are there some things you'd want to change?

What would have made Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking better?

Less repetition and self praise by the author.

What could Allen Carr have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Made the book about half the length by not repeating the same things over and over.

What character would you cut from Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking?

The author and his self admiration.

Any additional comments?

When this book was written the copy/paste function was used a LOT. I actually had to check a few times that I wasn't accidentally listening to a chapter I had already heard. I also got bored of listening about the authors successes and how great he thought he was.
