I'll cut to the chase. The character's are likeable and the plot idea was good. The authors decision to fill a quarter of the total volume of the book with what the detectives were eating and were going to eat was pointless and by the end of the book was irritating. You wouldn't mind if there was a reason for it but there clearly wasn't one! By the end I was left annoyed that the so called detectives were more bothered about their next meals than solving the murder of their mentor.
First I must say that although i have given the album five stars, i don't think i am overrawed by the album as most people seem to be. 'In my place' wouldn't hace been misplaced on 'parachautes' a top track and original Coldplay. Politik is the ideal song though to kick of the new album, its upbeat and heart felt. The Scientist is also an excellent track which is one of my personal favourites. I could go on all day about the album, but i won't. I will say the album is great and is worth buying if your a fan or new to Coldplays music. The only track worth skipping is Green eyes which Chris Martin has said he wishes hadn't made the album and I agree with. Look most albums come with filler (apart from Parachautes)and this album has one dodgy track, give them a break. Could you do any better, when trying to follow up a cult status album?
