This book is hard work. I dont doubt the great reviews, gut i struggled with the language, the dozens of characters and the chaotic nature of the plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, not fit for lightning plugs, 18 Jun. 2016
Great for cables with bigger heads, but my iphone lightning style charger slips out! Unless I am missing something? It is also quiet tough to get the cables in and out of the spaces without feeling as though you are damaging the wires. It is quiet weighty so stays put on the side.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hardcore diet not for the faint hearted, but well written., 14 Mar. 2015

This book is a very thorough way to get rid of candida, and very harsh. You may not realise exactly how many foods and food groups you will need to cut out completely. I was slightly off put by the author referencing her Christian faith a few times, but this is a personal feeling and does not detract from her message. There are plenty of recipies and the book is very thorough, I would like to see more factual information from scientific studies and more pictures of the recipies however, and feel that this book would benefit from both of those.

3.0 out of 5 stars Next book needs to be the last., 14 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a disappointing story. When this series first started it was fun and enjoyable, but as it has progressed it has become boring. One of the main reasons for this is the complete lack of development of Becky as a character, she is exactly the same in this book as the first. I'm starting to wonder why Luke married her and why Suze is friends with her as she is becoming, and perhaps always has been, pretty unoikeable. Shallow, self obsessed, deceitful and still a raging shopaholic, Beckys outing this time is basically a re hash of the same story lines except set in America. There is also the issue of the ending, in so far as there isn't one, it is all cut off rather abruptly with all of the story lines left dangling in mid air. I would recomend that the next book is the last as this has run its course.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superior to S1 Hemlock Grove has found its feet in a big way., 4 Mar. 2015
Having watched the first series and not been too enamoured with it, it was with some trepidation that I watched the second series. I was completely surprised at how much better it was. The last five minutes will make your jaw drop, and the overal plots will keep you entertained and gripped, but I really don't want to give too much away. There are a few sex scenes and a few senes of graphic horror but it is all within context. The plot is spread evenly between the old and a few new cast members with all of them interacting and building to a final episode which is brilliant both in terms of ending the season and making you go 'WTF'. I cannot wait for S3 now. I think the fact this series has so improved shows how Netflix is improving and growing as a content supplier.


The Butch Bakery Cookbook
The Butch Bakery Cookbook
by David Arrick
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars One for the boys that the girls will love as well, 9 Sept. 2014
Men like cakes as well!! Just not with pink sparkly icing and wafer flowers all over them. This book bridges that gap really well. It gives the guys a great little reference book for baking as well as a collection of seriously manly (read boozy) recipies.

Arrick goes through lots of basics in the begining - 'Boot Camp' and also includes an equipment 'Supply List'. The wording is slightly different to a regular cook book, it's been 'maned up' for example, we have the 'Ingredient Roster' 'Plan of Attack' and 'Construction'. He also includes 'Butch's Baking Lesson' at the end of some recipies - 'Theres a reason theres a recipie - so follow it!'.

The recipies are well laid out with nice clear photog's which look great and give a good general guide to how cupcakes should look and be presented in a 'guy style'. There are recipies that use booze (quite alot actually) coffee and bacon - but all sound delicious and are thoroughly adaptable (So leave the booze out if need be). Yes it is a bit 'Americanised' (Duh - its an American book) but the only issue I thought I might encounter is with the need to have an 'Egg Replacer' but you can get cartons of egg whites in most supermarkets nowadays - if not just use egg whites as normal. If there is anything you are not sure about - Googe it.

The chapters are as follows - Working / Play Ball / Touchdown / Barbecue Season / Couples night Out / Butch's On-The-Go (This last chapter uses pre-prepared cake mixes - which is genius).

An example of recipies are - Jack Hammer (Vanilla buttermilk with Choc H/nut filling and b/cream) / Really Hot Dog (Chili-spiked Devils Food with Dark and White Choc Chili b/cream) / Tailgate (Caramel with caramel sauce and b/cream) / Camp Out (Graham Cracker and choc swirled cinamon c/cake with Smores Top) / Rum & Coke (Rum c/cake with Cole b/cream) / Side Car (Brandy Lemon c/cake with Side Car b/cream) / and...Jack Daniel's Rush (Red Velvet with Jack D b/cream).........

I would defo recomend this book for all lovers of cakes and baking - both the boy's and the girl's.

I sniggered my way through this book. Full of puns and double entendre - this is a quick read designed to tickle places that the original 50SOG can't reach.
