H.I.V.E Book 1 Review

Title: H.I.V.E - Higher Institute of Villainous Education

Author: Mark Walden

Genre: Children’s/ Action/ Sci -Fi/ Adventure

Publisher: Macmillan
Publication date: 2006
Paperback: 298 pages

Series?: Yes, it is a series of 8 books.

How did I get this book: I borrowed it from the school library.

Why I read this book: It looked like a really good, and my friends recommended it.

H.I.V.E. (Higher Institute of Villainous Education) is a top-secret school of applied villainy where children with a precocious gift for wrongdoing are sent to develop their talents into criminal mastermind. After all, 'villains have the best lines and wear the best costumes'. One small catch is that the children cannot leave until training is complete, six years later. With villainy comes a certain freedom of thought, and every year one student in particular will show exceptional talent - after all, it takes the best to produce the worst. This year there are two students: Otto Malpense and his new friend Wing Fanchu are both exceptionally bad, and they are definitely not keen on being held against their will for six long years...

  • Loved this book as it was full of action and had unpredictable twists in the plot.
  • It was interesting right from the start - which I always think is important.
  • The characters were interesting and likable. 
  • You could really imagine H.I.V.E and all the teachers and characters. Let's your imagination run wild.
  • Makes you want  to read the next one!

What is geocaching?

This post is just going to show you the basics of geocaching.

If you don't know what geocaching is, it is an outdoor sport or game of searching for hidden objects by using Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates posted on the internet.
It is a high-tech treasure hunt in which small objects are stored in a waterproof container ("geocache") that can be located in the wilderness or in a public venue; usually not in public view. For more information on geocaching, click here to go to my geocaching blog.

Below is the official Groundspeak video from YouTube: 'What is Geocaching?'

It is just under 2 minutes long, and explains geocaching simply, covering most areas and making geocaching simple.

If you haven't geocached before I really recommend watching this as it is very easy to understand and shows you how fun geocaching is.

Hope you enjoy it and are now interested in geocaching - I love it!

Nativity 2: My thoughts

A few days ago I went to see Nativity 2. AND IT WAS HILARIOUS!

I was worried it would be exactly the same as the 1st one, but it really wasn't. I thought it was really funny and it had a really good story line which was not too similar to the 1st one.

I think it is a great family Christmas film, and really puts you in that Christmas mood which everyone (I hope) loves!

If you haven't seen it I would recommend going to see it in the cinema this Christmas, with family or friends.

Hope this review-type-thing was helpful!
