The Persona Protocol

4.0 out of 5 stars Could be a good starting point...., 21 April 2014

to another series. Are Adam and Bianca the new Nina and Eddie? Maybe not, but this shows promise and I look forward the the follow-up, if there is one. Just don't make the twist quite so easy to spot next time.

Clever, funny and a bit dark in places with good characters and a well-conceived plot. Very enjoyable and a good follow-up to The Hitchhiker's Guide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good...., 21 April 2014

as Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. It just seemed a little 'forced' for want of a better word. It's readable, it's amusing, rather than funny, but for me - no, not quite there.

I was expecting this to be like The Pyrates, but a bit updated in its cultural references. It was OK but seemed a bit laboured, as if the author felt obliged to produce a sequel to the earlier book. Somehow it didn't quite work, which is s pity really.

Yep, Focus are back. Fewer tracks, more focus (pun intended) and - at last - a guitarist with some (only some, mind) of the flair and subtlety of Akkerman. Only played it a couple of times so far but liking XRoads and Focus 10 as immediate standouts. I'd recommend this over 8 and 9, but only to non-Focus fans - everyone else will that those and this already.

Better than Focus 8 and shows that the new line up is getting into its stride. Jan Dumee's guitar duties have been passed on to Neils van der Steenhoven who does a better job of impersonating Jan Akkerman, but, although good overall, the album still is eclipsed by Focus 3 and Hamburger Concerto.

So, the first new Focus album since con Proby in 1978 and - compared to that - it's a welcome return to form. It would be fair to say that the team that Thijs Van Leer has assembled have a fair crack at emulating Akkerman et al but, somehow, it doesn't quite make it. Still, a good mix of rock, jazz, avant garde and the plain weird (Rock & Rio?) and a worthwhile addition to any fans Focus collection. Is it what they'd have produced in 1979 or 1980 if they hadn't split up? Who knows - but all the basics are there and as an inexpensive download it's worth having.

This was bought as a bit of a left-field gift for an out and out Disney fan whose favourite character is Eeyore. This gave her the chance to own a little bit of history as well as have a keepsake from one of her most loved films. She absolutely loved it and I thought that the engrave plaque detailing the film cell number from the limited release was a nice touch.

This was bought as a Christmas present for a friend. It was graciously, but not enthusiastically received. Reasonable without being in anyway a stand-out item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where does it go from here?, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This, the ninth in the Nina & Eddie, maintains the fast-paced, high-quality story telling we have come to expect from Andy McDermott. He has taken a slightly different path this time with, essentially, two stories in parallel separated by eight years. All the usual ingredients are there the course humour from Eddie, the slightly exasperated reactions of Nina and, of course, the good-natured bickering. The twist in the tale was a bit left field, especially after everything the couple has gone through since The Hunt for Atlantis. I can't wait for the tenth instalment to find out how Mr McDermott fixes the conundrum he has set up. And, as usual, I come away from the story wishing some Hollywood hot-shot would pick up on these highly cinematic stories and give us a thrilling franchise of adventure films. Jason Statham as Eddie and Alyson Hannigan as Nina, anyone?
