Alfred Hitchcok adaptation of "Man From The South"


It was getting on toward six o’clock so I thought I’d buy myself a beer and go out and sit in a deck chair by the swimming pool and have a little evening sun.

I went to the bar and got the beer and carried it outside and wandered down the garden toward the pool.

It was a fine garden with lawns and beds of azaleas and tall coconut palms, and the wind was blowing strongly through the tops of the palm trees making the leaves hiss and crackle as though... read the rest here.

I thought the book was very exiting because the book had my favourite Genre and a them of surviving in really bad times . The main character Jerry decided to find the key to his grand,grand father's castle after he found a little mystical creature that yet didn't led him to death , that brought him there. I would recommend this book to people that really like to find out new things through his mystical and difficult adventure, and people that actually can't stop reading one thing.

Book Review: I enjoyed this book, as it is simply written and easy to understand but is also based on a good idea. There are lots of fun and exciting parts, which are fun to read, but this book also contains few boring descriptions, at the beginning of each chapter, but which are required in each book. This book start with a young genius called Artemis Fowl II, along with his faithful bodyguard Butler, he finds a Holy Book, which tells of mystical creatures called fairies that are supposedly alive today but are living within the earths crust. So he sets out on a quest to find a fairy and kidnap her and only if the other fairies give him a ton of gold will he release her. Will he succeed? I would recommend this book to people who like fiction and fantasy.

Book: Darkly Dreaming Dexter
Author: Jeffrey Lindsay
Genre: Crime
Publicized date: July 2004
Recommended age for reading: 14-15 or further.
Date started reading: 28/12/2011
Review:
Dexter Morgan, the main protagonist of the novel lives a life of a lie. People around him suppose he is just as normal as any other person... well, as normal as can be for a blood splatter analyzer.
No one can possibly suspect him as a serial killer, driven by the Dark Passenger to mercilessly murder other criminals who escaped the law and justice. He is quite a neat monster and never will leave any traces of murder, nothing can shatter his mask for others around. His foster father's code helps him survive and come dry out of the water.
But what will he do when he faces a crime scene, with a victim murdered so skillfully he feels like a student on a master class. Little does he know that as the number of victim's rise and it is all for him, his new friend trying his best to get attention.
Leaving signs that only Dexter can understand... but nobody had ever given him a clue who exactly his new friend is!
And when they come face to face, will Dexter choose freedom or the code and his foster sister?
- I loved the book but I am not fully finished yet. It is the first in the seven-book series of Dexter. The book is thrilling, mysterious and scary sometimes... because like that you will never know if a Dexter lives in your neighborhood!

Book Rating (1-10): 8


Book Review: I personally enjoyed this because it was about my favorite thing to read about people with magical power trying to kill mythological creatures and saving the world, while failing to communicate. I also like most of this authors books and series. This book is full of interesting and boring parts (not a lot of boring ones but like the gooey "I was ordered to kill you but I want to be your girlfriend" parts (yes there is one of those) are stupid). I would recommend this book to people especially people who like mythology.

Book Review:
In the second book of the trilogy The Hunger Games there is a lot of action and also some romance. Although I still like the first book more than the second and even than the third, the second book has something that makes you keep reading. I have read all the 3 books and the author has a way of writing that doesn't let you stop reading. I would definitively recommend this book from the age 11 and up to people who like adventure.
