Cold Blood - Andy McNab (book review)

Cold Blood by Andy McNab is the eighteenth book in the Nick Stone series. As this was the first novel by Andy McNab I have read and therefore the first in the Nick Stone series, I was glad that this book you were able to read as a stand alone and didn't need the others prior to knowing what was happening in this novel.

Cold Blood is about a group of amputees who were part of the army making their way to the North Pole. Throughout this book you see how they get the money for the trip to the pole and the troubles that comes along with this, going forward you also see how dangerous being on the ice are because of different countries wanting the oil that comes from the North Pole.  As things get more dangerous for the group other factors come into play which makes this book get more interesting and keeps the reading wanting more.

This is a good fiction book which chapters are really small so it's easy for reading on the go and for those who aren't fast readers and lose interest in reading quickly. I did find this book difficult to keep interested in however with having to re-read some pages at times as it wouldn't stay in my head. Overall, however I did like this book and would like to read more of this series to see if it is only this book or the overall series.

I would recommend Cold Blood by Andy McNab to those who like thriller novels and are wanting something fun to read. This novel would also be good for those who only like to read small amounts at a time as it's easy to pick up and stop when you wish with the chapters really small.

My Review:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is e…

My Review:
Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch.

I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the world through the cause…

My Review:
Wanting something different to watch I thought I would check out Escape Room which is available to watch on Netflix.

This movie was good in that it did provide mystery and I did enjoy how the puzzles within the Escape Room were laid out and that every room had something in which they had to figure out and it was not just one room. I also enjoyed seeing how the people actually interacted with each other and why they seemed so hostile with certain characters. By also starting the movie with seeing someone having to choose a lock it came across very much like the movie "Saw" which does feel very much the same all the way through the movie. With also having the movi…
