1.0 out of 5 stars waste of money...and it was free!, 19 Aug 2013
I'm very glad that this book did not cost me any money. I thought it would be a Mills and Boon type story, sexy but with a good story line. It was, in fact, incredibly badly written, with a cardboard hero, and a heroine with little personality. She wasn't feisty, or sexy, or independent, just very boring. The language was uninspiring and pretty juvenile. The plot was predictable, but the declaration of love seemed to come out of nowhere. Overall, this story was boring and cringeworthy, and not worth the time to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!, 1 July 2009
I'm generally a fan of fantasy that has a little romance in it, but picked this book based on reviews and was blown away. It focuses mainly on a an unlikely comradeship and deep friendahip that develops between A Prince and his slave. Prince Alekzander is an arrogant and bored prince who cares for nothing but his own amusement when he buys Seyonne, a man who has been stripped of his magic and sold into slavery after the Derzhi Empire invaded his homeland. Bit by bit, Seyonne's kindness and gentle disapproval tranforms Alekzander into the kind of ruler he should be. After Seyonne battles to save Alekzander's life, the respect Alekzander has for Seyonne changes to friendship.
It was beautifully written, and I actually couldn't put it down. The way the friendship develops is very interesting, and it was actually refreshing to read something that didn't have any romance in it. The fantasy side of it was also refreshing and new, slightly complex but well explained and consequently very interesting.
It is one of a trilogy, and I have to say that it is one of the best trilogys I have read in a long time. Please read it, i don't think you will be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!!!!, 16 Jan 2006
This review is from: The Shell House (Paperback)
This book is a really good read, and deals with some adult issues in a very clever and sensitive way. It deals with issues about identity, religion and sexuality.
Its main character is a teenage boy called Greg, who comes across a burnt out ruin of an old house. There he meets a girl, who is a devout christian, and with her trys to discover the story behind the house. At the same time he is dealing with the issues of his own sexuality.
The book is well written, but is a little slow to start and slightly confusing with the switches between time at first. However, once you get in to it, you will not be able to put it down. One thing, I think this should really be classified as an adult book, with its themes and some of it's scenes.
Please read this, it's not possible to read this and dislke it!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 23 Nov 2005
It was better than the 4th, unbelievably! It was far darker than any of the others to date, and Harry is forced to grow up very quickly. He is joined by Ron and Hermione, again but seems to be far more alone than ever before as nobody believes him about what happened in Harry Potter 4. There is a new evil teacher too, someone to hate even more that Snape! The end is one hell of a climax, and it left me stunned and sobbing for hours after! No parents, no god father and being told he will one day have to fight Voldmort!
Fantastic but so so sad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Brilliant, 23 Nov 2005
I loved this book! It was yet another classic from Rowling and I was pleased to see a lot of Sirius in this book. Harry is now a teenager and he soon realises it too! There is quiditch, lessons and now a slightly more dark side to the book. There is a death, and I thought the return of Lord Voldemort was cleverly written and I cried slightly when Cedric died. It was a fantastic read, and it took me only a day to read.

These three books are my all time favourites. Its a love-fantasy trilogy with a difference, its set in japan. They are the best teenage books i've ever read, and Lian Hearn writes with such skill, depth and description, its impossible to belive your not there. The names are a little confusing but once you get past that, they are amazing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Buy, 23 Nov 2005
This review is from: A Cinderella Story (Audio CD)
This cd is ok for anyone who liked the film. Personally i don't like Hilary Duff as a singer, or an actress really but i loved the film, (it had nothing to do with the fact that Chad Michael Murray is so hot, honest!) There are certain tracks on this cd that it is worth buying for, like the jesse McCartney track - Best Day of My Life and the Goo Goo Dolls track. Only buy this if you really loved the music in the film, as half the album is Hilary Duff, or her sister
