I wasn't looking for this book or this author....the book just presented itself on one of my trawls through the kindle book lists. My interest was caught as I tried to think why anyone would give a book such a title when it is fiction; so I had to read it and try to marry up the content and the story.
I'm an avid reader - and I have not read a book like this before. Sometimes, in even the best books you get those pages where you start skimming or wondering when this section will end because the writing has flagged somewhat or it's just gone off the boil. Not so with this was mesmerising from start to finish. One reviewer said you don't need to 'get' the knitting references… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars A mistake., 30 Dec 2012
I had heard about this game and also whispers that it might be made into a film, so I was curious. I am willing to believe that I have the wrong mentality for these games and that is the best I can say really. Noisy, pointless and brash. Might suit young children.......having said that though - I accept that my 20something son loves it to while away some time.
There are better things to do I'm thinking so absolutely not for me but don't know whether that is a fault of the game or me. Sorry Angry Birds!

5.0 out of 5 stars Teenlit? I don't think so!!, 24 Nov 2009
How did I miss these books?

A girl in my class ( 8 year old!) was reading some sort of comic book 'add-on'about Twilight....upon questioning I found she had read all of the Bella and Edward books, and this explained to me why so much of the writing in school was punctuated with references to people named 'Bella' and 'Edward'. (Such old-fashioned names I had my ignorance.)
I did a bit of research on Amazon and found that they were aimed at teenagers (female I guess).
At the same time I discovered in an idle moment, on Anytime TV the first film in the series and I was mesmerised by it.
Let me add that I am no teenager....add on another 45+ years… Read more
