I didn't like this book. I found the prose to be clichéd, it was repetitive as some phrases were over-used. Mainly the ones about the key and continuing to refer to Sykes as The Wolfman, as if we would forget.

"Pack Of 14 Curtzy Crochet Hooks 2mm-10mm By Curtz&hellip by Kurtzy
4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, 10 July 2011
I'm new to crocheting so wanted a selection of hooks at a reasonable price, which is exactly what this product is. There are plenty of different sizes, and I've never needed anything different.

My only complaint would be that because you get one extra hook in this set than in other similar products it doesn't actually fit into the case provided, but considering what you get for the money this isn't a major issue.
