“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ― C.S. Lewis
Despite the fact that "Dexter" is for sure inspiration for the book it was quite good publication. Although main character is a 15teen years old boy I must admit he do know a LOT about the serial killers that were hunting US for some time. He have a "code" which keeps him from turning into Mr. Monster and keeps him look like an average boy which seems pretty much like "Harry's code" that Dexter Morgan is following. Anyway - pretty good book if you have a bank holiday and can have a longer weekend.
What different ? No one dies, there is no guns, no explosions.
But then - the book leaves you with a question "What is the goal" ?
What is the goal of market? What is the goal of your company ? Also what is the goal of your marriage ? goal for you ?
And you're start questioning all your actions :)
I'm not a big fan of fantasy but... this book is not about fantasy is it? ;)
I enjoy reading about mystic creatures - the way it has been written, I felt it's all real. The whole story gives you a possibility to enter a world where everything and nothing is possible. All characters re so real, there is no hero... all of them are so unique, so...simple . With basic human feelings, concerns, doubts... but also courage and determination.
Personally - hobbit is my favorite book. Then when it comes to the trilogy first and third are v. good but second .... I thought - they are ONLY walking, walking, walking. 3 can't come, rest can't catch those 3 :P
At the end I wasn't feeling this sadness that the trilogy ended, I was glad it was, but this is one of the books when one day passing shelf I will sot one of them, grab it and read it again :)
yeah - of course I read it :)
At first the book was amazing, reading it gave me so much pleasure but at the end... after all it should be a children book yes? So WHY on earth Rowling decided to kill almost all main characters ?!! Including owl ?! Unfortunately with all my love at the beginning I'm not sure if I would decide to read it again... in my opinion at the end the author was just trying to get read of this book, maybe she got bored? She forgot that even if life is hard and horrible it should still ends "and they life happy ever after" without killing so many characters (ok...she killed Sirius, she killed Dumbledore - why owl?!).
I was lucky enough to spot "The Death Sculptor" on a sale and get it. After few first chapters I already knew I'll read the rest of the series!
I enjoyed Chris Carter style of writing, how he can stop the action and leave the reader much to imagine but on the other hand, described the crime scene without pompous language, and unnecessary "poetry". The whole idea of the book recalls me other detective book series - Mark's Billingham Tom Thorne.
Main character- Robert Hunter may be to "good" (a Criminal Behavior Psychologist turned Detective for the Homicide Special Section) - everything succeeds, he's brilliant, intelligence, knows everything etc. But I found him fascinated.
For me- it's one of the 'can't wait' book :)
"People Who Feel Good About Themselves Produce Good Results"
I need to admit that after few first sentences of this books my first through was "damn...".
So simple - so worth reading. Such books should be recommended on Management studies and after that in each company this books should have a place and future and current managers should read it - at least once per year :)
