5.0 out of 5 stars Frankenstein - a play, 30 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this little book after having seen the play twice at the National Theatre, which was awe-inspiring: both Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller put on an astounding performance. The standing ovations were definitely well deserved!
The new take on a suposedly well-known story allows the audience (and the reader) to relate on an empathetic level to the abandoned creature of Victor Frankenstein.
Worth reading again and again!


Old Man and Mr. Smith
Old Man and Mr. Smith

Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars The Old Man and Mr Smith, 30 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Old Man and Mr. Smith (Hardcover)
This is an utterly well written book, laughter inducing and thought provoking. It's also much more than simply about God and the devil returning to Earth for a long overdue visit: they discover the modern world and the changes it has induced in humanity. And they re-learn things they had either disregarded or forgotten about each other and themselves.
Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores, 30 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was torn between laughter and consternation. A must read to anyone who has ever worked, or is even planning to work, in a bookshop. Be well prepared for a wide range of either jaw-dropping weirdness or cringe-worthy stupidity of some comments of the customers. Read it, enjoy it, and laugh!
