4.0 out of 5 stars Fit for purpose!, 5 Oct 2012
This is a well designed cover for the Galaxy Ace. I totally agree with many of the other reviews; it fits well, looks good (the colour is great), and makes the phone easier to handle. I would recommend this to other Ace users. I might suggest that for an extra 1, throwing in a screen protector would be a super fantastic idea!

This review is from: Talking Bagpuss (Toy)
This item was bought as a birthday gift for a 31 year old boy, and he loves it. Bagpuss does look like the original toy, the overall design and manufacture is very accurate. He's also a lovely soft toy to cuddle up with. And that's all without the fact that he sings a little song... And yawns!! That but is awesome. So, thank you for selling this great gift, I've enjoyed it just as much as the recipient.
The only, very minor downside is that, according to a previously posted review, the battery doesn't last forever (nothing does). This probably makes it a better gift for kidults than actual children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A positive role model if ever there was one... dead or alive!, 19 Jun 2007
Since childhood I've always enjoyed a good read that enlivens the imagination and makes me smile. I was after a new read, something along the dark and twisted road with a morbid sense of humour; who would have thought it would be found in a "childrens" book?

I read reviews on Amazon about this book and was pleasantly surprised by the number of "adults" who too like to venture into their deepest imagination, and who better to do it with than Skulduggery? It was the number of warm and encouraging reviews that pursueded me to buy this adventure.

I loved every word of it. The characters and plot are well developed and rounded with interesting and strangely believable backstories. Derek Landy has touched on the single most important point that leads to the spectacular success of this book, we all want to believe in magic and so we are compelled to agree with Stephanie in her pursuit of her uncle's mysterious death. She encounters trouble and problems in everyway imaginable, both in her old normal life and in her new mysterious, magical and dangerous one.

I for one can't wait until my newly pre-ordered copy of Skulduggery Pleasant: 2 drops through my letterbox! Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply: Excellent!, 6 Jan 2003
This review is from: Hamlet [VHS] [1997] (VHS Tape)
Kenneth Brannagh is with very little doubt one the the best directors and actors of Shakespeare's texts. His ability to clarify meanigs of the play through precise interpretation is beautifully exemplified in this production of Hamlet. It is clear to any observer that Brannagh understands Shakespeare with ease. This enables the observer to understand the words and story beter themselves. If any one has any qualms or difficulties with understanding Shakespeare then just buy this; it is enjoyable for all and easily understandable.
