I never read a book twice, until now; I have read this series time and time again. It has been described as comparable to Tolkien's Lord of the rings; it is certainly as good if not better. You will find that the characters are deep and develop which each of the books. I couldn't put it down as the drama unfolds with many twist and turns. It wouldn't be fair to go into the plot and spoil it for anyone who has yet to discover this treasure.
You find yourself completely drawn into the plot. Thomas Covenant isn't the most obvious choice for a leading role and you have as much doubt in him as he does himself at times. You go through the highs and lows with him at times you find yourself feeling sympathy for him the next you want to scream with frustration at him. He's not the romantic, powerful confident character we are usually presented with and is at times somewhat lacking when compared with the other participants in the saga. For once there is tale where the hero isn't so heroic and his actions aren't always without consequences that cost others dearly as well as him.
I bought this book when it was first published and couldn't wait until the next one came out. There are now several more chronicles and I am still as enthralled as I was in the beginning I would really like to give a more detailed résumé but I don't want to rob the reader of the wonderful experience of discovering this world for themselves and the emotional ride that awaits them.
I normally buy this as a gift for my daughter, but must confess that I do pinch it myself especially if I am going out! It has a perfume that makes a change from the usual fruit or flower smells of most of the other Gel. you only need a little to get a lot of lather. The price is a bit expensive but it does last a long time so is value for money. It has a lovely creamy texture. The witty play on words and the label design certainly makes it stand out on the shelf.
I have used other soap and glory products and find that they are all good quality. I like the fact that you can buy a range of sets and sizes, this means that they make an ideal gift especially when you can't think of what to get.
Would I recommend it yes I would but may be as a treat when you have had a long day or just want to pamper yourself
I was not very keen on the idea of this product as I like to hold a book,but now I love it. It fits in a handbag so when you're on the bus or just grabbing lunch its ideal. It opens at the exact page you closed on so you don't have to rely on bookmarks which fall out or turn back the corners anymore. You save money as well, with a wealth of free books; the most expensive one I have bought todate was for£2.99! If you the sort of person who likes to have a couple of books on the go at once then it perfect for you.
The added bonus is that when you go on holiday it saves weight and space in the suitcase (on some airlines that is a money saving as well.)
It is very simple to use and once you have registered you can order new books from the device itself, these will appear almost instantaneously.
I wouldn't be without mine now.
