2.0 out of 5 stars Going through the motions, 18 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh dear - what a disappointment. Ruth Dudley Edwards' earlier books in this series had characters - this has caricatures. Earlier books attacked real targets - this creates strawmen and then destroys them. Earlier books were based on real knowledge, some sections of this read like a reactionary Wikipedia re-write. An airplane read perhaps, but no more.

Arrived on time. Well packed. Fitted the sockets. And now we only have to see how long they last in use.

This is wonderful resource for the beer drinker. I bought it as a present, but couldnn't resist dipping in, and an hour later I was still dipping.

The three volumes in the Creaky Castle series are great fun. If you have a young son reluctant to read, this might work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Foolish purchase, 2 Jun 2011

Didn't realise that it was the French language original, not a translation! The rave English language review was not intentionally misleading - and I should have seen there was no translator. Bit dense for my limited French skills, even with a dictionary.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sadness, 17 Jun 2010

What a shame. Colfer has written some good stuff, but this is just not in his league, let alone Douglas Adams'. It is rare for me not to finish a book, no matter how bad. I have given up with this.
