I loved all the mystery and entanglements surrounding the alleged suicide of the supermodel and the interaction between Cormoran Strike and his temp. secretary Robin.
Each twist in the story kept me guessing about what really happened and who was involved. The story kept me intrigued all the way through.
I am glad that it was leaked that J.K Rowling wrote this under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith and that the profits have gone to charity. I may not have purchased this book otherwise and been able to enjoy an excellent story from a master storyteller. Robert Glenister's performance as narrator was brilliant as well.
A great conclusion to one the best children's trilogies I have ever listened to, and read. In Inkdeath Orpheus has made it into the story and is reeking havoc in the lives of the people and animals of Inkworld. Mo becomes becomes more like the Bluejay than ever before, and Dustfinger is returned to the world of the living at huge personal cost to Mo. Can Meggie, Mo and Dustfinger save Inkworld from the Adderhead before it is too late? Have a listen to this brilliant conclusion to the Inkheart trilogy, read by Allan Corduner to find out.
Brendan Fraser's reading of Inkspell by Cornelia Funke is absolutely brilliant. This time instead of the characters coming out of the book of Inkheart, we are taken into the world of Inkworld, where the story takes place. We are introduced to the Megalomaniac Orpheus who is able to read people in and out of books but is unable to read himself into Inkworld which is his greatest desire. Reggie, Mo, Farid and Dustfinger meet new allies, new enemies as well as old, namely Basta and Capricorns mother Mortola. A brilliant sequel which is better than Inkheart and Fraser's performance as narrator brings the story to life.
The characters come alive when reading Inkheart out loud. Forefinger is a fire eating performer who tricks with fire are brilliant. Maggie and Mo read the characters to life, and Dustfingers Marten Gwin. Lynn Redgrave delivered a brilliant performance of Inkheart. The book is absolutely brilliant. Cornelia Funke is one of the better children's authors around. The Chronicles of Narnia by C S Lewis was absolutely pathetic compared to the Inkheart trilogy.
Breaking Dawn is the brilliant conclusion to a great saga. Ilyana Kadushin delivers a brilliant performance of Bella's point of view and Matt Walters gives an equally impressive performance of Jacob's point of view. Bella becomes a vampire after been injected with venom to the heart, by Edward, after she almost dies giving birth to Renesmee, their daughter who is half vampire and half human. The Cullens then join forces with the werewolf packs led by Jacob and Sam and with other vampire covens to confront the Volturi who are set on killing Renesmee and destroying the Cullens. A marvelous listen and read and deserves its reputation as probably the best vampire story written thus far.
Eclipse is the best book in the Twilight Saga. This time the Cullens and werewolves join forces to defeat an army of newborns that have been created by Victoria, to wipe out the Cullen coven and to kill Bella. The newborns have been reeking havoc in Seattle in preparation for the fight against the Cullens. A great listen and read. Ilyana Kadushin gives another excellent performance.
The second book in the Twilight Saga, New Moon is a brilliantly touching story in pure Romeo and Juliet style. Jacob changes into a werewolf tasked with killing vampires, in their territory that pose a risk to humans. Edward decides to sacrifice himself to the Volturi when he believes Bella is dead and Bella becomes determined to become one of the Cullens' vampire coven. Ilyana Kadushin once again delivers a brilliant performance of this audio book.
Stephanie Meyer's first book and the first book in The Twilight saga is absolutely brilliant. Ilyana Kadushin's narration is excellent and the book flows smoothly the whole way through. The story can be a little sentimental at times, but overall it is an awesome read.
A beautiful story that showa that even in the face of our worst atrocities, our humanity always allows us to find the capacity and ability to love. To me this is more a story of what it is to be human rather than an alien science fiction story.
Firefight by Brandon Sanderson is simply brilliant. The Reckoners travel to Babylon Restored (New York City) to track down Firefight (Megan) who has seemingly joined forces with a powerful epic named Regalia. David believes that Firefight is good, but the other Reckoners want her dead. A brilliant listen, Firefight is better than Steelheart in every way.
Lyra's Oxford takes place 2 years after the events in His Dark Materials. After saving a daemon belonging to a witch from being attacked by birds, Lyra is tasked by the witch's daemon to find a crazy old alchemist who can save her. Little does Lyra realise that their is more to the story. A great little addition to His Dark Materials and a good quick read.
