Learning time: The Angel’s game

Standard

Right now, two minutes ago I have finished The Angel’s game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. Man, that is some work. I can’t even express what this book did to me.
What do you mean you’ve never heard of it??
This is one of the best pieces of art I’ve ever laid hands on. Seriously. The story .. It just feels real. I’m smiling between tears because I’ve lost a friend I have been in love with for over 400 pages, just as I am happy that I can turn to those 400 pages any day and live his adventure all over again. If you haven’t read it yet do so immediately. It will change your life, I promise you. I envy you the thrill that you will discover in the story.
Because to me it’s not even just a book anymore. It became a friend, a fortune, a bliss.

Learning time: Skyfall

Standard

Bond. James Bond.

Any movies that involve James Bond are to me must-see movies. Sean Connery, Roger Moore both have played the British spy. My favourite Bond remains Pierce Brosnan though.
However, Daniel Craig has done a pretty great job in the latest movie. He still manages to make the female audience sigh out with that amazing elegance. The movie lasts about 2 and a half hours and a lot of things happen, but it’s mostly exciting. The jokes are funny, definitely, for those of you who appreciate British humour.
The best thing about this movie is Javier Bardem. He absolutely rocked that part and became the perfect villain. I had never expected him to be so good, but he was…impressive.
The rest you know to well, even before I tell you. Guns, glamorous cars, amazing spy stuff, cute girls in tight dresses, suits, M and an Adele soundtrack.

P.S. Q, Bond’s help, is adorable.
