#Review One-Two-Go Dubai

One-Two-Go Get This Book!!

This is the second travel book I have read by this Author, and the content of One, Two, Go Singapore was good enough to inspire me to buy the second one. Yet again the book is a detailed and comprehensive guide, and is packed with information designed to make your journey to Dubai a lot easier. From buying a cheaper plane ticket – to the exchange rate for stated Dirham into US Dollars, he leads you by the hand. The book is very much geared to saving you money, and is about getting the most value for your cash, while still experiencing every aspect of Dubai's unbelievably gorgeous scenery, attractions, and monuments. The images are breathtaking and include the incredible Dubai Fountains and Burj Khalifa (the tallest skyscraper in the world).
There are numerous maps to help you locate the various attractions, with prices and the types of transport available to get there. Tips on the best free and paid activities, and those especially for children. Once again he has left no stone unturned and his delivery is easily understandable and methodical covering everything down to the tiniest detail.

If you have never even considered going to Dubai in the first place, the spectacular images in this book may inspire you to gallop directly to your local travel agents and get your ticket booked post-haste. This is an extremely useful and precise tool that will enhance the quality of your trip to Dubai, and is well worth the money. Highly recommended!

Gripping Read!!

Dragonman: Face of the UnknownDragonman: Face of the Unknown by Ted Lazaris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an edge of the seat story, which begins smack bang in the middle of an apocalyptic event. The end of the world is a topic which has intrigued mankind since the beginning of time, but in this story it is just the beginning; not the final annihilation of humankind. The foreign object hurtling towards the earth is merely the first sting of a battle that will consume the heavens above and the earth below.
The threat introduces the DragonMan; a superhero already living on our planet, with access to different worlds such as ‘Spellville’; and he is not alone with his incredible abilities, of which more are revealed as the story continues. His family, with which he runs the family business ‘Starr Investigations’, are also endowed with their own fascinating skills, which invite further investigations of their own. Other characters from Spellville include ’Plupee’ and ‘Dooley’ who add a little light comedy in the midst of such dark and dangerous occurrences. Another lead character is Nathan, who has no abilities except for his skill with a pen. Luke and Nathan's lives become intertwined in the midst of the first catastrophe, and when Nathan has a series of personal disasters, he seeks out their firm for help. Thus begins a rollercoaster of explosive tragedies, spectacular fantasy, and murder mystery. The Author leads you through each one in a well written, intriguing and captivating way.

In summary I would advise that you set the scene to read this novel. Get your cocoa, your pyjamas, and go to your private place; switch off the tv and ignore the kids for a while, and step into Ted Lazaris complex and fascinating world of the unusual, the bizarre, and the downright terrifying creatures you are about to meet.
