Offered by Gifts Of The Orient Ltd
Price: £36.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes a great gift, 1 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This teapot not only looks good, but is also functional. It will serve about 2 cups of tea. I would recommend buying it with the trivet, as it does get very hot.
The teapot arrived in good time, and was very well packaged.

A great phone case at a great price. It also came with a phone cleaning wipe, which was very handy as my mobile was looking a bit dusty! Very impressed :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars More gripping than a crocodile clip!, 22 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I couldn't wait to get started on this sequel to The Maze Runner. As soon as the package arrived, I'd ripped it open and started reading. You are thrown straight back into the gripping story with all its action and suspense. This is a sequel that lives up to the first in the series, and in some ways even surpasses it. The pace of the story is perfect as you journey with Thomas and the gang through The Scorch. New characters are introduced and instantly accepted into the story. Freakishly believable and heart-racingly gripping, make sure you have purchased the next in the series before you've finished so you can get right into it.
5 stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars A compelling dystopian mystery, 4 Jan. 2013
I found this book on a random search and thought it sounded interesting. Well 'interesting' doesn't cover it! For the past three days I have been totally consumed by the compelling mystery of this dystopian novel. I finished reading it about 10 minutes ago and have already ordered the next one in the series.
What makes this story so compelling is the way it moves you from hope to despair at every page turn.
I'd highly recommend this novel to those who enjoy a thriller, mystery, and dystopian fiction.


Sing The Sorrow
Sing The Sorrow
Offered by best_value_entertainment
Price: £4.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Shivers down your spine!, 2 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Sing The Sorrow (Audio CD)
I bought this album on a whim 9 years ago, and it has remained one of my very favourite albums ever since!

The dynamics in each song are expertly crafted to send shivers down your spine. Eerie breezy sounds contrast with fast hardcore metal. Lyrics that inspire you to write poetry. Stunning musical talent.

If you like punk, metal, hardcore, death metal, melodic metal, well produced rock music, thoughtful poetic lyrics, originality, music in general... buy this album!


The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games
by Suzanne Collins
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic!, 7 Aug. 2012
This review is from: The Hunger Games (Paperback)
If teenagers start studying this for their GCSE English text, I'd be very happy!
Remember 'Lord of the Flies'? Well I believe that 'The Hunger Games' equals such classic dystopian literature.

What makes this novel such a gripping read is how unbelievably plausible it can be. I could picture some of the 'districts' as particular countries in our world - it is a very uncomfortable contrast between the western and developing world.

'The Hunger Games' is by far the best novel I have read all year. Parts of the story can be quite harrowing, so I would not recommend this for young teenagers. The lead protagonist is female, however, the character and plot are still easily accessible for male readers. As teen-fiction, the book is an easy-read for its adult fan base, which makes it all the more enjoyable because you can whizz through the book in a day!

'The Hunger Games' is so gripping, you'll want to clear your diary to read the sequels!


Pretties (Uglies Series Book 2)
Pretties (Uglies Series Book 2)
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy-read with twists and turns, 7 Aug. 2012
I read 'Pretties' before reading 'Uglies', not realising it was part of a quartet. It actually stands firmly as a novel on its own. I didn't even realise I was reading the second part of a series until I finished the book and started hunting around for a sequel!

The story is set in the future, when the way you look has become the basis of society. Plastic surgery has been perfected and advanced; the aim of society is to look pretty and have fun; and there's no conflict. However, as the story unfolds, you begin to realise that things aren't so 'pretty' after all!

I would actually recommend reading 'Pretties' before 'Uglies'. I say this because it heightens the impact of the twists in the story, and you take the journey with the protagonist without any pre-judgement.

The futuristic setting, with the warning of the price of vanity, makes this a very enjoyable read for teens and young adults.

3.0 out of 5 stars Second disc is better, 19 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an experienced dancer, I do like a challenge. However, there is a difference between something being 'challenging' and it just not being taught very well.

In my opinion, the first disc is unengaging and unhelpful. The warm-up is very slow, repetitive and basic. But then you are suddenly thrown into a very fast-paced and technical routine. There's no build up. Also, the 'work-out' movements are taught all in one go, without music. Dance lessons are always successful when you get the chance to go over small sections, and even better when you can try each section with the music. This does not happen. I would most certainly NOT recommend this for beginners either! The 'basic' routine is actually very technical, and the 'advanced' routine is just the same routine again, but with a few movements changed. To me, that's not two routines...that's just one routine with differentiation.

The second disc is where Diversity Dance Fitness Fusion redeems itself. The teaching here is much better. Ashley explains each movement very clearly, which means that you know exactly which part of the body you ought to be working and how to make the movement look good. The routine is also broken down into sections, which really helps. You get to see a performance of the routine so you know what it ought to look like. You also get to perform the routine section by section slowly, as well as with the music. This is really helpful because it helps you to remember the movements. Also, because you get to try each section with the music, it makes it much more interesting, and you feel like you're achieving progress.

Overall, I rate this DVD with 3 stars. I don't think I'll be using disc 1 again, but I am using disc 2 every day. I am determined to perfect that routine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud until it hurts!, 6 Jan. 2006
wow! i could not put this book down. i'm not much of a reader, usually it takes me months to finish a book. but this one just hit the spot! it's a really easy read, especially great for holidays, or if you're feeling rubbish and need a chuckle.
the book's heroin, becky bloomwood, uses all the excuses in the book to spend lots of money. many such excuses i recognise. for example: 'i dont smoke, so just imagine all the money ive saved, so can therefore splash out on another 6 pairs of shoes!!'
so to all women who need a good laugh at how we all manage to get ourselves into the most rediculous situations... read this book! it'd make an exellent gift for a girlfriend, or as a treat for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and Readable, 29 Oct. 2005
A great book for both general interest, and for students.
A wonderful source. Easily walks the reader through some of the history of anatomical discovery.
Split into sections: 'The Body', 'The Act', and 'The Aftermath'. This is what makes it so good for students; because it is easy to find which areas you are interested in, or are studying.
