Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Champ V/NOX
15 of 17 people found the following review helpful
This Swiss Army knife is great. It's a good size and comfortably fits in your hand and you can put quite significant pressure on the blade without worrying it's going to snap, either off or shut. Sharp blades and its easy to open up the different tools, without them feeling flimsy or loose.

It was a toss up between this and a Leatherman. The snob in me really wanted a Leatherman but I'm glad to have this - more tools, more reasonable price, similar guarantee, good quality.

Having read the Shadow of the Wind, I was excited to see that Zafon had written another. I was slightly disappointed to find it a little samey to the previous. Don't get me wrong, the plot is different, but Zafon obviously likes writing about the book culture in Barcelona.

The dark, narrative style is engaging and enjoyable but the endless supernatural twists and turns end up being a bit too much and seemingly for the sake of it rather than a strong contribution to the plot. It's a good story, with likeable characters but, if you're just getting into Zafon, I'd recommend that you read one or two books in between, otherwise you'll feel like you're reading the same story over… Read more
