5.0 out of 5 stars Stephen King's finest hour, 4 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Misery (Paperback)
This book was written by Stephen King at the peak of his excellence and was the first book of his I read (after reading the 'hobbling' scene in English, when one guy felt sick and had to leave the class!) and is nothing short of suspenseful and downright disturbing at times.

Intrestingly, the book serves as one giant metaphor for how Stephen was feeling at the time, exhausted after battling a drug and achohol addiction and pressured to write mediocore books by fans. If you are familiar with King's books, buy this without hesitation. If you have never read a Stephen King book then please check this out, you will not be dissapointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does it make you smarter? I dont know, but it sure is fun, 10 July 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Dr.Kawashima's brain training is a very unique 'game' although it is more like a edition of pocket puzzler than a game, basically the Dr asks you maths questions, puzzles and thinking games etc. and at the end depending on how well you did he will tell you the age of your brain. Although the target is 20 the first time i played it was 60, Cripes! After a while i whittled it down to a respectable 27. Even though you can only do the age check once a day there are always the quick training puzzles and 'sudoku' (that game Carol Vordaman always goes on about) which will keep you occupied for a while. Overall i would say this game is a good deal for the budget price of £16, if you think you will like this game, go for it. You hardly have anything to lose

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Miyazaki, but not the next 'spirited away', 10 July 2006
After being treated to the exellent 'spirited away' i was eager to see more Miyazaki films, i bought this one and, while it is not the next 'spirited away' it is certainly worth your time and money. The plot can be hard to follow at times but after repeated viewings you will eventually understand it all, Miyazaki has also once agian created a imaginitive world with exellent, eccentric characters.

this is certainly worth a look, but you will enjoy it more if you havnt seen spirited away
