Read full description of the books:
This is a book that has seemingly randomly showed up in one of my many book piles but due to the nature of it I know that it has somehow found its way from my sister's place. What intrigued me with this book to read it so soon was the fact that I randomly opened up around the back pages and started readings bits, which definitely intrigued me. Unfortunately my intrigue was lost after starting the actual reading of the book from cover-to-back.
First of all I do have to give the author some credit for the concept of the book and the execution in making it seem like it is a composition notebook, which is a new concept. But out of this particular idea I don't truly understand why Death would just randomly leave a notebook behind as that doesn't seem to be the type of character that Death would be (possible lost business secrets) nor the fact that Death would make entries using a few or the majority of word exercises under each letter.
At the same time the author of the notebook seems to be ancient and worldly in their knowledge but then complicates things by contradicting themselves with other presented information. You get a feeling that Death could possibly change hosts thus possibly its age but if so then how is all the archaic information still related?
All in all even though it was an interesting read it is truly not my cup of tea and was more of a blah-blah-blah type of read when it came down to the basics. Something read and enjoyed for a few seconds before trying to find this particular book a new home.
