Common law rights, human rights scrutiny and the rule of law Common law rights, human rights scrutiny and the rule of law Rights and Freedoms Friday 19 July, Common law rights, human rights scrutiny and the rule of law Australia is unusual among common law countries in not having a Constitutional Charter or Bill of Rights. Parliament presumed not to intend to limit fundamental rights A well-established principle of statutory interpretation in Australian courts is that Parliament is presumed not to have intended to limit fundamental rights, unless it indicates this intention in clear terms. Such an intention must be clearly manifested by unmistakable and unambiguous language. Although the presumption - that legislation is intended to be consistent with fundamental rights - can be overridden by sufficiently clearly words, this presumption constitutes a substantial level of protection for what has been termed the "principle of legality". The hypothesis is an aspect of the rule of law. This presumption includes fundamental rights recognised by the common law. A similar presumption applies regarding consistency with international law obligations, inluding human rights treaty obligations, which came into force for Australia prior to the passage of the legislation concerned.

The characters! Gosh the characters! I didn't recall them being this awesome! It takes some okay, a lot of talent to write a book like this, and to me, Miss Carter deserves an standing ovasion!

I can't even imagine how much time it took for her to plot all her characters' actions. Each and everyone of the situations on this book were complicated and tricky at first to be ended later in the most simplified way you could think of or actually, haven't think of these guys are teenagers after all, and trust them to find the answer to an exit problem using five hundred doves not kidding, don't ask What I also loved about this second book is that it shows Kat's flaws.

I mean I knew she had them, SHE knew she had them, but it's nice to see them aknowledged. She can be a super kick ass thief, but she's also a fifteen year old girl who has normal problems while living an extraordinary life.

And Hale, oh W. Hale the Fifth, how I love you! He kept the loyalness he has come to be known for. He's awesome, you can tell he's deeply in love with Kat, but he's not gonna take her crap, and I like that, he's fierce! Every other character kick major butt in this one too. This book is incredible and I can't wait for the people at WB to give the green light so they can start turning this series into a movie!

It'd be the ultimate action-packed, romance-full, funny-filled film I've ever hoped to watch! Jun 11, Daiane rated it really liked it. I could totally picture the world and loved Carte's way of making the characters look like good badass people. They are thieves who have no unbelievable tech, guns or really dangerous people behind them and still made the book enjoyable. I liked how they were conning and robbing in a classic and elegant way and still were the good guy.

And how sly they were. The writing was really easy and pleasant but the romance She studied him for a long time.


Or at least more with Nick! So because it was lacking is some ways, I wouldn't say this book is a YA but had more of a Middle Grade feeling to it. The plot twist got me by surprise but the ending was really predictable. It was a really easy read and would recommend it for sure: Dec 05, Seesen9 rated it really liked it Shelves: Who could have seen it coming?

It was just so bloody complicated, twins, fake stones, cons, plans for this and that I wanna be a thief! Very, very much. Hale the 5th together and not so much together it totally made me blush.

Also I will mistaken Paraguay for Uruguay for the rest of my life, thank you very much! Listen to my Heist Society fanmix in 8tracks and see the tracklist here. Not as good as the first one, but that was still an enjoyable read. I didn't love this one as much as I loved Heist Society.

Maybe because there wasn't much plot in my opinion? My favorite Hmmmm. My favorite character is probably Gabrielle and I adore the friendship the cousins are developing. Kat wasn't a huge fan of Gabrielle in the first book, but she slowly begun to realize that her cousin is in her corner and their relationship in Uncommon Criminals is really endearing.

Speaking of relationships, I loooooooove the shippy feels! They're so great! So yeah I didn't really get the big bad part and found her more annoying than anything else tbh.

Kat and everyone else is supposed to be this mastermind of all things and now you're telling me that she can't remember whether it's Paraguay or Uruguay? They're two different countries. If I was from one of them I'd be offended because that's probably what happens irl all the time that people just don't care enough to remember and to make it into a running joke that's supposed to be cute and quirky is not that appealing.

For instance From either side of the family. And same about Gabrielle since Eddie isn't her grandfather either There were more things but I just don't remember. As a whole I liked it and I laughed out loud quite a few times, but omgggg I have so many questions and none of them are answered.

I'm not a huge fan of all these plot holes and lack of information on everything and especially the character backgrounds. I think these books could benefit from more pages at least just to give some background and talk about the characters more in depth.

May 28, Erin rated it it was ok Shelves: I honestly thought that I would like this better than Heist Society , but the ending failed so miserably that I am left feeling nothing but disappointment. The ingredients for a fun, intelligent read were there , but they were wasted. Overall, the story was distractingly unrealistic, the characters were bland, and the ending was poorly put together. First, let's talk about the novel as a whole.

I am echoing myself from my review of the first book, but really? I'm supposed to believe these kids are I honestly thought that I would like this better than Heist Society , but the ending failed so miserably that I am left feeling nothing but disappointment.

I'm supposed to believe these kids are capable of huge, dangerous heists? They don't seem to put much thought into their plans, and after awhile it gets tiring to be told what brilliant young thieves they are when I haven't been successfully shown that this is true. There's also a lot of telling instead of showing when it comes to the characters. I have no emotional attachment to a single one of these people, probably because they never come alive to me.

Uncommon Criminals (Heist Society, #2) by Ally Carter

I don't even remember the Bagshaw brothers' names, let alone understand the differences in their personalities. Because liking to blow stuff up doesn't count as a personality trait, FYI.

Even the two main characters, Kat and Hale, seem like your typical reader stand-in and vaguely dreamy love interest, respectively. Quick sidenote about Hale: I am so over this archetype. So Hale needs to either grow up or go away.

However, despite all of these issues, the biggest problem for me was how weak the ending was. There were several plot-twists that occurred simultaneously, and none of them were executed well. I was irritated by how impossible the ending was-- impossible to guess, that is.

I even went back and reread key scenes, but Carter neglected to lay even the most basic foundation to show how her plot-twists could happen.

There were no subtle clues, no vague wording, to give any indication that the ending was even planned. And it really sucks that this is the case. Because up until the ending, I was moderately enjoying myself. These books are fast-paced and action-oriented, which is refreshing in the sea of emo romances dominating the YA section. If only Carter had put more thought and effort into wrapping up her plot and I wouldn't mind more rounded characters, either , then this book might have been something.

View 2 comments. But with the promise of teen art thieves, heists, cons, action, espionage, cursed jewels, ancient Egypt and Hale, I couldn't resist trying again. But I almost wish I hadn't bother. This book was just dull. None of the characters developed in the slightest since we last met them, a 2.

None of the characters developed in the slightest since we last met them, and I had the same problems with them that I did last time. We barely seem to see them at all! We see what they did and what their role in the various heists were, but we never got to sit back and really see them I think this was mainly because of the weird writing style. The writing purposely left a lot out or skipped over important scenes so that we wouldn't know what was happening and be surprised at the end. Well, you know what?

I don't like feeling manipulated If you could have surprised me at the end, I would have loved it. But instead we know that everything isn't as it seems, and then it tries to spring it on us that everything was a ruse. Well, sorry if we all saw through that. It wasn't half-obvious or anything Unless the rumours of a fourth book are true?

Love this series so much! The crew is great! It feels like a guilty pleasure, because these kinds are so much younger than I am, but those are just really well-written books! Just by a smidge.

Kat and her crew are back in Uncommon Criminals , and this time their mission is to steal the Cleopatra Emerald from a man named Oliver Kelly, whose grandfather stole it from an Egyptian tomb.

This is the biggest job Kat has ever had: And if that wasn't enough, the Emerald is also supposedly cursed, bringing misfortune upon anyone who comes in contact with it. It was a fun time! Yes please. I've never been to Monaco but it's always kind of fascinated me - this tiny country the size of a town with a royal family, chock full of casinos and hotels.

It's like another world. Unfortunately Kat did annoy me a little bit in this one, mostly surrounding everything to do with Hale. It annoyed me how he was always incredibly sweet and there for her and clearly loved her, and she kept insisting on her "I work alone" shit and taking Hale for granted. She also seemed to take sole credit for the heist in the previous book, when it was very clearly a team effort.

Hale is amazing. Gabrielle is my girl crush, Simon is adorable, and Hamish and Angus are hilarious. Overall I'm really enjoying this series, I'm in love with the Art Thief Aesthetic, and any story with a heist is bound to have me hooked. More 4. Jun 28, Alaina rated it liked it Shelves: Uncommon Criminals is the second book from the Heist Society.

I don't really know how I feel about it.. Okay, so, this book was meh. Just like the previous book. I don't really know if I want to torture myself with more of these meh books but I haven't made my decision..

Maybe they will get better or worse.. Maybe I'll flip a coin. So this book was dull, boring, and again MEH. I still haven't really Uncommon Criminals is the second book from the Heist Society.

I still haven't really connected to the characters and I also haven't seen a lot of development between them either.

I also don't really like the writing style. I'm pretty sure that's why I'm not really connecting to anything because we are only really seeing what they did but not what were doing throughout the whole book. It was annoying and frustrating to read. Does it change throughout the series? Does it get better?

I have no idea. Besides the frustrating writing, I just feel like I either missed a shit ton of things happening..

Either thinking in it her head.. I don't know but it happens - a lot, to me. Overall, I have no idea if I wanted to dive into the third book. I took a second chance on this series and I'm still not impressed, intrigued, or even slightly enjoying myself. I'm just numb to reading this series right now. Actual rating 4. It was entertaining, fun and full of action. This book focuses a lot on family and friendship but it has more of a romance as well.

Writing Actual rating 4. Writing Style — 4 out of 5 stars The writing style is funny, simple and really easy to read. Characters — 4 out of 5 stars This improved so much more in this second book. I definitely found myself connecting a bit more with all the different characters in part because I got to know them more through their relationships.

It was just what I needed. Kat has grown from the first book but not necessarily in the best way. I was kind of upset with Hale in this book though I totally understood where he was coming from. It was nice to see a more emotional side of him even if he still carries on with his charming and protective self.

The plot is entertaining. This book was a lot ore exciting and suspenseful than the first. The stakes are higher and the job is much harder than ones they have encountered before. There were quite a few twists and turns that I did not see coming at all which I really appreciated. Sometimes with these books, in this particular genre, things happen way too quickly or too conveniently to be believed beyond the fact that teenagers are pulling off heists and I loved that this book turned things on its head and left me floundering to see how they were actually going to get their shit together and pull off what they needed to do.

These obstacles challenged the characters, specially Kat. They had to think outside the box and grow and learn together which made the story much richer.

Just everything about this group! Kat goes through a lot in this book. But luckily, she gets a really nasty dose of reality and begins to grow and change from that outlook. But she slowly begins to put more of her faith and trust in her family and what they can do together and it was really great to see. The side characters in this series are some of my favorite though they definitely took more of a backseat in this particular book. Hale is still my overprotective sweetheart. In the first book, he kind of got by on his charms and his jokes and while I love that, he needed more depth and it was obviously appreciated.

Gabby is getting to me. Overall, I liked this book much better than the first one, the books are definitely getting better each time.
