I really enjoyed both this book and the other book by Connie (the first one of this series - blackout!). The only bit I found a bit annoying was that the characters were rather stupid in working things out and I found it got a bit repetitive at times. I found myself thinking "oh for goodness sake get over it". The twist was a little bit obvious I'm afraid! However, the story was nice and it was fast paced enough to keep my attention.
I enjoyed this book so much I listened to it in one sitting. I usually just listen to audiobooks while I'm driving, but this book I put my earphones in and listened to it while doing my chores. I'm a big fan of Neil Gaiman books and this is one of his best!
This was recommended to me by a fellow audible listener. Its pretty well non-stop action from the word go. Although there are a few details about Australian snakes which aren't quite right, and she does go into a bit of detail about them in a couple of section, the story is good. It keeps going in a fast paced way and I kind of liked the heroine of the piece as well. I will listen to this again at some point.
I found this book quite captivating and interesting. It gave a different take to the Genie in a bottle story and I had never really heard of a golem before. It was a bit slow paced in some places, however found it thoroughly enjoyable!
Really enjoyed this book. Beware though - it finishes right in the middle of a cliff hangar and you need to get the second book - All clear - to find out what happens. I thought that was rather rude of the author really. However, saying that, I truly enjoyed both books in this series.
I have to say I loved Neil Gaimans the Graveyard book, and I equally loved this book. Its a real adventure through an underworld London. The characters are interesting and things are never quite what they seem. Gorgeous story. Loved it. I'll be getting more of Neil Gaimans stories.
I loved this book. Full of humour, great characters and laugh out loud moments from the main characters. The plot is really interesting and things move along at a great pace. A great investment
A great listen. I was a bit torn because I tend to like light books for escapism, so its unusual for me to pick something like this. A ratings choice. It was really great. A bit sad at times but nicely done.
I really enjoyed this at the beginning and I actually bought the book because it was in the sci fi section. I even enjoyed the romance at the beginning. But over the course of the book that just got a bit boring. The story was pretty good, but it got a bit predictable really. I probably won't bother with the next in the series
I really enjoyed this. Its witty and funny and great light bit of escapism. Great banter between the characters and Bill is a bit of a blokey sort of bloke. His thoughts on women really cracked me up a few times. Well worth it!
