5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality with perfect instructions!, 9 Jun. 2016

At first slightly I was overwhelmed by the amount of pieces and length of "installation guide" required for just a screen protector BUT after having been through the exercise, can say it was totally worth it! Super clear instructions with the most original customer support leaflet included for such a product. The protector fit beautifully and is very high quality with no bubbles whatsoever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another pure high for all John Locke addicts, 25 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I confess I'm utterly biased because I love love LOVE all John Locke novels. Did I already mention I absolutely love them all?? But even so, having read all of them without fail, I must say I especially enjoyed this one, although not having been too much of a fan of the Gideon Box series so far. The main reason is probably that despite the chaotic appearance of it all, the novel skillfully weaves in characters and plots from all the storylines. Another big reason is the lovely character, Trudy Lake, pure, extremely lovable and still surprisingly smart. The climax is still to come... Can't wait for the next!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Warning: switch off your brain before you read!, 9 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Off to a good start with a gripping scene, we are catapulted right into the centre of the story with Christine totally lost in an unfamiliar setting. She suffers from amnesia. Right there, we know what the story is about. Good.

Yet, despite a very good premise and original idea (an attempt at evaluating what reality and truth really mean), I found the final result deeply disappointing.

While the format of having most of the story told through Christine's journal creates a very specific angle, it also regurgitates a lot of the same material over and over again (this might "set the mood" but at the same time is a danger element of boredom) and is also unrealistic when you come to ask yourself whether you'd be able to actually write that much and that precisely each day, then also have the time to read what you wrote before AND still have a life on the side to actually do things... Leave that aside then and just accept it...

The story still has too many holes in it (would the medical profession really lack that much attention? Would she have so few friends to care about her?) and a very obvious ending that becomes clear at about 70% down the book. I found myself then skipping ahead on many pages to finally reach some action again...

But more than anything, it was the weak ending that was such an anticlimax to it all... This was coupled with a conversation that explains every single action that was taken through the entire story to just not leave any sort of doubts or unclear points to the reader. No, absolutely nothing! Everything, every aspect of the story had to be explained, so the reader wouldn't even be tempted to think about it (no, fear not, no brains needed! Switch it off right there!) and fill the gaps in any sort of way.

Then somehow the very end tries to leave a tiny tinge of doubt, of a possibility that this is not just a sudden happy ending like a rabbit pulled out of a magician's hat. But really at that point too much has been already clarified to even leave any doubt that this might not be a 100% happy ending to the max...

Overall, I'd definitely not describe this book as "brilliant" or in any sort of way memorable. No, this won't be in the archives of literary history but... it's an easy no-brains tube/bus read to be finished and forgotten again rather quickly, sort of like the protagonist's memory. Just don't overthink it and it might be entertaining enough.
