      It's a tough read (if you're used to not only easier English but also less though provoking stuff). It's VERY good though! Basically it's a senior devil writing letters of instruction to his apprentice about how to win souls for hell. Reason it's such a good book is because it makes you think about how you're living your life and does anything in the book match up to things that you don't think twice about. Instead of how most religious books are about talking about how to enter heaven, this one shows you the other side of the coin. Not only a wake up call but also very interesting to think about. You should definitely give it a read

      Given that description, I'll definitely give it a read. The religious orientation should make it that much more interesting. It's been on my to do list for books for a really long time anyway. I'll pick it up when I have a chance.

      And don't worry about the style of English. I can read through it like a champion. xD

      i loved the kidsseries 'deltora' but well i don't really read anything else then gamemanuals and schoolbooks these days
      Well I wish I could say it was fun but it really wasn't, the bit I've been here was as much a shitstorm of hate as it was before even when I was simply making a joke, I'm gone.

      All my activity/thoughts are findable in my usernotes, enjoy.

      I really enjoyed the Series of Unfortunate Events books by Lemony Snicket.
      Decided to look into them after I saw the movie. So glad I did, coz the movie only covered 3 of the 13 total books.
      It's a great series about 3 orphans who are constantly on the run from their estranged lunatic relative Count Olaf who is trying to steal their fortune.
      Even though they constantly run into misfortune and misery, they always find a way to come out relatively okay.

      I LOVE ALL BOOKS

      Well, not really. I just don't really have a favourite book.
      The first book that comes to mind is House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer, though. I rather enjoyed that book.

      It's a tie between the Harry Potter series and Jodi Picoult's works.
