We didn't know what to expect from this show, but we really enjoyed it. Gentle, funny, interesting. Oh and someone involved loves trees because they showed us some crackers at every opportunity. An extra star for the trees!

I'm only part way through this book yet but I really love Mary's art and if it can improve my work by even a fraction of what she can do, then it is well worth it. :)

I've just finished this book and plan on buying the next. Enjoyed the character Iona and looking forward to finding out the answers to some of the mysteries still to be revealed. It did take a little while to get going, but worth it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed what we could, 22 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really enjoyed what we could watch of this series, but, two of the ten discs arrived with major flaws. They weren't loose so we assume they were packed like that. Poor quality control. Each story runs over two discs, so two of the five shows were not watchable. We are in Oz and we had to ship it back at great expense, which was not even close to being covered by the postage recompense. We were then expected to rebuy and pay postage all over again, and since there is every chance discs will be wrong again, we are not going to bother. Very sad about that. Would suggest folks further away than UK don't buy from this company.

This review is from: Family Tree [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
We really enjoyed this series. So different, and we couldn't wait to see who he turned up in his family tree next. We really liked the way that everyone was so tolerant of each others' differences. Gentle and quirky!

This show has such warmth and humour! We really enjoyed this second series, perhaps even more than the first!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that funny., 10 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mr Sloane [DVD] (DVD)
I love Nick Frost and probably always will, but I don't think this is such a funny comedy as some people are saying. It is actually rather sad a lot of the time. More of a drama than a comedy really. That's not a problem as long as you know this going in. I might have given it a miss if I had, so thought I'd better do a review as a warning to people like me who get dragged down by sad shows. We kept watching thinking it must be going to brighten up since it got all those reviews about how funny it was, but it never did. Also the first scenes of the first episode show Sloane attempting suicide and could be triggering for some people.

This review is from: Dirk Gently [DVD] (DVD)
If you want this series to follow the books closely, then you will be disappointed. I was very excited to hear there was a Dirk Gently series, and I do think the casting is great, but I wonder why they bothered calling it Dirk Gently at all. Why not just make up a character who is a bit like Dirk, give them whatever name you fancy, and write whatever the heck you want? If one can get away from being disappointed about that, the series is an ok watch. A nice quirky bit of telly with some interesting plot twists and no murder porn.


Lion Song
Lion Song
Price: £6.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting!, 13 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Lion Song (Kindle Edition)
This book was a great read! I loved the African animal lore and adventure in it, and found it very hard to put down. The main character rather reminds me of a younger version of a hero from a Dick Francis novel . He is honorable, likeable and mostly cool under pressure. He is learning more as he goes along and isn't afraid to say he has made a mistake. Ott's love and respect for animals shines through, though readers should be warned that there is killing of animals in this book as part of the story. One just has to remember that it is a fictional time in the future where the animals are once-more plentiful and people are few, and the subject is treated respectfully. The book was very hard to put down from the first page, and I am very sorry that the author has passed away and I can't continue to follow Daniel and his community into new adventures.
