Dreams of Gods and Monsters: Daughter of Smoke and&hellip by Laini Taylor
I guess I am a little over the target age for this trilogy of books, but I have loved them all, as has my husband. To keep things short, I thoroughly enjoyed this final instalment, but was also impressed by the well thought out and informed ideas that the story line encompassed, always conveyed in an intelligent and well written way when lesser authors might have taken a more simplistic route. Congratulations, Laini Taylor, on maintaining the flow, wit and heart of the earlier books.

I ordered this watch on Tuesday, it arrived Friday lunchtime. It is beautiful - very classy looking and weighty. The bracelet isn't super big, but I will need one link out to make it a better fit. I was slightly worried that it might look bit big on my wrist, as although Nixon say it is unisex, a lot of places advertise it as a man's watch, but actually, it looks fab. I can't complain with price either - around 100 less than mainstream online watch shops. I'm hoping that quality is as good as it looks and it lasts for many years.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware the hype, 27 Jan 2013
I was really looking forward to reading this book, I thought it would be something a bit different and enjoyable.

Unfortunately, I found it pretty boring, mostly due to the (ghost?) writer's incredibly naive style, repetitive musings on where Bob came from and his childlike anthropomorphism. I can't say I even saw it as an eye-opening or insightful read on life in 'London's underbelly', as the Daily Mail put it. It needed a good edit and would then probably be suitable as a short story, not a book.

Sorry guys, but if you are even slightly discerning in your reading picks, you will probably want to give this a miss. I agree with the other 1 and 2 star reviewers on this… Read more
