Angles and Demons

A couple of weeks ago I went to see Angles and Demons in the cinema, it was amazing. I loved every bit of the movie and it is now definately one of my favourite. Here is a short trailer for it:



As you can tell by the trailer, the movie did have quite a lot of blood and murder but I still thought it was great, it had lots of suspense and the plot was fantastic. I was already reading the book when I went to see it but I had still not finished it and now I regret going to see the movie before finishing the book. Although it did ruin some suspense I still couldn't put the book down because the book was a little bit different to the movie (but it did stick to the main parts) and I really wanted to know how the book ends. As usual when I compared the book with the movie I thought the book was better but I think that is mainly because of the time factor they had to consider in making the movie and so they couldn't fit everything in it.

The curious incident of the dog in the night-time

I have just finished reading a book called The curious incident of the dog in the night-time by Mark Haddon. I realy enjoyed reading it and I thought it was a great book, mainly because of the way it is written. It is written in first person and the writer (in the book) is an autistic 15 year old boy who is writing a story about a murder mystery that he is trying to solve. The book shows how a young autistic person's mind works and the difficulties they and the people around them face each day. While trying to find out who killed his next door neighbour's dog he uncovers a secret about his 'dead' mother that his father has been keeping from him.

April fool!

As you know, today is 1st April (April fools day) so I looked up some pranks that have been played in the past on this day, this is what I got from http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/aprilfool/

The Swiss Spaghetti Harvest1957: The respected BBC news show Panorama announced that thanks to a very mild winter and the virtual elimination of the dreaded spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. It accompanied this announcement with footage of Swiss peasants pulling strands of spaghetti down from trees. Huge numbers of viewers were taken in. Many called the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti tree. To this the BBC diplomatically replied, "place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best."

London

I know this post might be completely random to you but I only decided to write about London because I am going to go there in a few days. First of all I am very excited about going there but only because we are only going to stay there for just one day. This might sound very wierd to you but this is only because I do not like to stay there for too long. There are a few reasons for this which are:
It is very noisytoo many people,
crowded
such a big place
expensive
confusing
danger, violence, robberies



These were all of the negative things about London. I do like London as a touristic place and I am always excited to go there for a weekend. Here are a few of the positive aspects of London - in my opinion:
amazing tourist attractions
fun
full of great shopping ;p
fun - again :D
where ever you go you discover something new
different cultures



So overall, in my opinion, London is the perfect place for a fun weekend but not such a great place to live in forever. :D

- Oh, and by the way Londeners (and anyone else) I meant no offence :D

Welcome to my new blog

I am not really sure what to write as I have never had a blog in my entire life so I will start off by telling you a bit about myself. My favourite thing to do in the whole world is reading. I have read lots of really good books so maybe I'll write about them sometime.
I am from Kuwait and that is my favourite place ever!
I know that was a very bad start but I'll leave it at that, maybe I'll get better the more I write.
