Conhecimento Comum



This audio presentation is quite good. The reading is great and the music between chapters adds to the mood. I haven't seen the movie, so was probably fortunate not to have the comparison since movies are often so different from the books on which they are based. I enjoy stories about characters who don't expect to rise above mediocrity striving to do so anyway.

This book surprised me. I was originally turned off by the gross names and the strange art, but listened to as read by David Tennent I was cracking up along with my 6 year old.

Nem esti mesének való, de nagyon élvezetes olvasmány, remek karakterekkel és fordulatokkal (A filmekkel köszönőviszonyban sincs, kb a szereplők neve azonos, és ennyi. Azok is jók, meg ez is, teljesen másképp). A függővégek és a sodró lendület miatt önálló olvasás megszeretésére nagyon jó lehet, a további részeket megpróbálom a Kicsinek is majd erre tartogatni. A Nagy úgyis alig bírja, hogy ne spoilerezzen megállás nélkül.
