Nutribullet Blast Off Bag

1.0 out of 5 stars Apparently not suitable for Nutribullet Pro 900, 1 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nutribullet Blast Off Bag
VERY DISAPPOINTED This bag does not accommodate the oversized cup or even the tall cup with resealable lid and forget attaching the flip-top-to-go lid
I read the questions and answers and it seems everyone else has a larger bag because all my bag can accommodate is the small cup.
Not worth £9.99 for that.

Groove, Bang and Jive Around
Groove, Bang and Jive Around
by Steve Cannon
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Porn in Print?!!.........NOT FOR THE PRUDISH!!, 8 Dec. 2006
When I read the first few pages I too indeed was shocked, and didn't know whether to read on or put the book down!!!!

(I lent the book to a friend, and after reading a few pages, she returned it to me LOL!!!)

The story was easy to follow at first, but then I got lost in the voodoo of it all!

Amongst the numerous orgies and voodoo surrealism, I'm afraid I lost the plot of where the story was heading, if anywhere at all!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read!, 8 Dec. 2006
I have never heard of Dick Gregory, and it was the title of the book that grabbed my attention. I read the blurb and the book was sold!

I loved the directness and of course the humour of the book; how Gregory never gave up on his personal struggles and dreams, and then later go on to fight in the civil rights movement.

I enjoyed the book so much, I actually kissed it! LOL

Toy Soldiers
Toy Soldiers
by Stephen Thompson
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Kudos Stephen!!, 7 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Toy Soldiers (Paperback)
I read this book a few years ago.
A light hilarious read! Will have you in stitches!
It was especially dear to me because Thompson sets the story in Hackney, which I am very familiar to, and got the streets down to A-Z detail!! Also the characters are very realistic, and easy to identify with.
If you like this I recommend 'East Of Acre Lane' by Alex Wheatle!
'Toy Soldiers' & 'East of Acre Lane' both are in my Listmaina!!!
Was looking forward to similar humour in Thompson's other book 'Missing Joe', but did not find it! Good book though! ;-)

1.0 out of 5 stars In Response to Reader from Birmingham!, 7 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Soul Tourists (Hardcover)
I am currently reading this book, and was considering putting it down, which I hate doing! So I thought I would come to Amazon to read any reviews to see if anyone had the same feelings that I am having!!
I agree with Birmingham Reader's statement....
"As a straightforward read, it's confusing, disorientating and less than satisfying. Switches in time and level of reality make the reader's job difficult."
One minute I'm reading about a meeting of two different people who are about to embark on a roadtrip adventure, then the story goes back in time, which is very confusing, as I do not see the relevance to the story. I felt like skipping the 'historical' segues to keep to the current story, but then wondered that I might indeed miss something that might be linked to the full story. So that's what led me to Amazon!
I also wasn't impressed on page 4 of this book. I have seen the odd typo in a book, which can be forgivable, but 'draw' which should be spelt 'drawer', when referring to a box-shaped container without a top which is part of a piece of furniture, that slides in and out to open and close and is used for keeping things in.
This is my 1st Evaristo book, and Birmingham Reader's quoted comments below has actually made me wonder if I can still get a refund! There is no intrigue for me.
"Soul Tourists is a disappointing read for an early Evaristo fan, in some respects, but a tantalising one too and will give you much food for thought"
Mitch Albom's 'Tuesday's with Morrie' will give you a feast for thought, trust me!

East of Acre Lane
East of Acre Lane
by Alex Wheatle
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Up Alex!!, 23 April 2005
This review is from: East of Acre Lane (Paperback)
Great book set in early 80's Brixton, London, (Acre Lane is a street in Brixton) when there was great unrest amongst the youths, which resulted in the Brixton Riots.

It is so familiar in the sense that Wheatle refers to every detail of that time, including what song was playing in the background, to what clubs the characters frequented, dropping actual street names, to the latest fashion of the time.

I highly recommend this book, especially to Black Londoners who are between 35 - 45, as they would relate to it so well, but to everyone else, please don't pass this one over! A good mix of humour and issues of the day.

His 'n' Hers
His 'n' Hers

Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK read., 25 July 2004
This review is from: His 'n' Hers (Paperback)
I liked the clever way Mike told the story from Alison and Jim's points of view, in diary form, choosing a different typeface for each. Sometimes it was a little confusing if they were conversing with each other when one of them was telling the story!!
The timelines (short term day) had me flitting back and forth, as I was wondering how relevant it was to the story, apart from when Alison was in the hotel and Jim was on the plane........
Imagine! All this stemmed from a cat called Disco!!!
I was just wondering, as a black man, will Mike ever have black characters? I know colour is not an issue in his storylines, so why not a black couple?
This will not deter me to read anymore of Mike Gayle's books, as I enjoy them immensely, Mr.Commitment being my absolute favourite.

47th Street Black
47th Street Black
by Bayo Ojikutu
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.43

3.0 out of 5 stars My Review, 3 Jun. 2004
This review is from: 47th Street Black (Paperback)
47th Street Black was good, but I found it quite labourious. I'm not one to put a book down, and I had become impatient to finish it. In a nutshell, I felt the story could have been condensed to half of the book size.
It would be interesting to see it made into a film.
