5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, 20 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Through The Night (Audio CD)
Best new vocal talent of the past five years, I'm saying. I absolutely adore Ren's voice and can't wait to hear her next album. Goosepimples listening to this. So intimate yet so strong. Here to stay.

It's a strong magnet (quite small) in a large plastic housing. I decided in the end to break the magnet out (with a saw), as it meant I could stick it on the metal strip in the kitchen with the knives.

Great dress. Probably best not to wear it on TV if you're a scientist who's just landed a space probe on a comet, mind you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Girl's Best Friend, 20 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you didn't already know, this is the original, Ian Levine and Fiachra Trench demo, before JN-T asked Peter Howell to re-record the theme for the TV series. Best listened to while perusing the Times, sipping a glass of red wine, or balancing on a wall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop giving away our secrets, Vince!, 2 May 2012
This review is from: Lies On Girls (Kindle Edition)
I was a bit dubious of this, with it's 99p price and billing as a collection of columns about the life of a single man. But not only is it well-written (which makes a change for bargain-priced eBooks), it's also really funny.

My main concern is that writer Vince Raison is being a bit TOO candid about the way men think. If all women read this, they'll realise what a shallow, selfish bunch we are and that could be the end of the species.

This is perfect commuting or toilet book material, the best kind of dip-in-and-out read. If you've long since left the lad mags and the "sexperts" behind, you'll still find plenty worthwhile in here. The author matures throughout the book's three distinct sections, which unfold like acts in a medieval morality play. At the same time, there are also lots of jokes about ladyparts. Which is nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm loving angels..., 23 Jun. 2011
Buy this! It's an exciting time-travel adventure, a creepy thriller and a touching love story. Okay, so it's not a thesaurus but, hey, you can't have everything, right?

How Not to Grow Up: A Coming of Age Memoir. Sort of.
by Richard Herring
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Has anyone said "this is mah favourite book" yet?, 14 Jun. 2010
I enjoyed this book. Maybe I'm going through my own personal mid-life crisis but, if so, I seem to be filling it with lots of autobiographies of comedians on the road. (I'm sure there's an Amazon list in that.)

What's nice about reading Richard Herring's stories is that he does appear to have reached some kind of happiness, either through his professional or personal life. Whilst there's no real moral awakening on display here, that's also quite refreshing. There are no answers, or apologies, offered. It is simply a well-told part of the author's life and his increasing sense of restlessness, peppered liberally with good jokes and funny observations.

As noted in the other reviews, a lot of Herring's material is developed in public, on podcasts and in live shows. This is a nice distillation of the last few years of his work. So, as long as you don't read it expecting Damascene revelations, and you enjoy a bit of above-average puerile humour, I think you'll enjoy this book as much as me.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Peter Serafinowicz, 19 Aug. 2009
Get this, if only for the Butterfield sketches (there's plenty more besides).

I love Peter, and not just because he said my book was "very funny too" on Twitter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain bucket of laughs, 24 May 2009
Not simply an exercise in nostalgic nerve-tweaking, Emma Kennedy's book is a brilliant semi-autobiography in equal parts fond, familiar and funny for anyone who lived through the '70s.

If you ever stayed under canvas in the less-than-five-star accommodation of British and French campsites, or watched as your parents turned a hot summer day's picnic into a chimp's tea party, then this book will strike a chord. If you enjoy lyrically evocative prose or vivid, well-told holiday adventures then you will also enjoy reading this collection of stories.

And if you, like me, rarely laugh out loud (least of all at a book), then beware - because this book will surprise you into producing sizeable snorts and sniggers in the most embarrassingly public places. Highly recommended.
