2.0 out of 5 stars Oribarmy, 22 Aug 2013
This review is from: Origami Animals (Paperback)
Let me preface this by saying that I am a conspicuously patient person. Honestly. Okay, that fact established:

I was under the impression that origami specifically didn't involve cutting the paper, that all the effects were achieved by folding. Well, I'm reasonably sure that some kind of origami elf has cut half the instructions out of my copy, as it it leaps from 'Step 1: piece of paper with a single fold down the middle' to 'Step 2: finished scale model of the Chrysler Building'.

My daughter and I spent about an hour trying to rationalise the journey between Steps 3 and 4 of the basset hound (having persevered through the excruciating instructions to first make 'the dragon') before finally agreeing that we didn't need a paper model of a dog that badly.

Don't buy this book. It's put me off origami to the extent that I'll never be able to watch 'Blade Runner' again without fast forwarding every scene featuring Edward James Olmos. Seriously, I'd give my copy away, but I can't think of anyone I hate that much.
