Review: The Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs
The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Longer review in book journal.

This was an amazing book. Haven’t read it for reasons I need to get a psychologist to dissect, but ultimately got to it and it proved to be an hell of a read. Excellent story, excellent villain, great characters, great pacing. Writing a little sparse, but it worked.

Looking forward to watching the movie now! Ok, not like *now*, now, but soon.

Review: I Am The Secret Footballer: Lifting the Lid on the Beautiful Game

I Am The Secret Footballer: Lifting the Lid on the Beautiful Game
I Am The Secret Footballer: Lifting the Lid on the Beautiful Game by The Secret Footballer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fun! I wanted to read about the naughty wives of famous footballers, but he doesn’t explain it here. The stories he does tell was fun.

He makes it clear that not all footballers are dumb oafs. Well, that’s obvious, not every footballer’s idea of a good time is getting drunk and laid all the time, at the same time, and several times at once. At least, not all the time. But to see it articulated in such a manner, with such a sense of self-awareness is refreshing.

From an education perspective, however, I do prefer The Secret Footballer’s Guide to the Modern Game, which isn’t all textbook, but explains a little more behind some of the things that are happening on the screen.
