5.0 out of 5 stars very funny, 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The dialogue is very funny and as much appreciated by adults as well as children. Jackie Chan is very entertaining. At the low cost it's at now a days its worth buying for a family night in. My kids are 9 and 12 and both thought it was worth a movie evening at home.

My 8 year old got hooked on granny nothing when she found an old copy on our shelves. I had to order the rest of the books in the series as she couldnt get enough of them. Funny and easy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars gripping, 17 Feb 2014
Couldn't put it down. Great book. An easy to grasp yet well woven story that will appeal to adults and young adults alike. If you liked hunger games, you will enjoy this too. Even my 9 year old read a couple of chapters and had no problems getting the hang of the structure of the story, despite it's intracacies and futuristic setting. Suitable for ages 12+.

1.0 out of 5 stars got a refurb when I was expecting a new one : FD code means refurb, 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I too got my ipad for 299.99 from great value gadgets and it is a US version with a separate UK charger lying loose in the packaging. I emailed them before hand to make sure it was new UK stock, and was assured by email that it would be. It is not. Just googled the product code (which was FD5233LL/A) and it is a refurbed product. Misselling as new UK stock. You can buy genuine mini ipads UK new, from other sources at this price. Avoid anything with FD code, as this means refurb stock.

Red Hill
Red Hill

5.0 out of 5 stars gripping, 14 Jan 2014

This review is from: Red Hill (Kindle Edition)
A well written book that grips you within the first couple of chapters. There are many main characters all trying to find a safe haven to hide from the zombies, and they all end up at Red Hill, though it takes many trials and tribulations to get there. The author succeeds in intertwining the stories of all the characters. I lost a couple of nights sleep as I didn't want to put it down. I am not really into zombie books, and only bought it as I liked beautiful disaster, but I was not disappointed. Quite scary in parts! Various love stories prevail throughout. The book keeps a good pace and the author doesn't leave loose ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars great first board game for over 3's, 4 Jan 2014

This review is from: Candyland (Toy)
This was sent from america though ordered on the english amazon site, adn took around 2 weeks to arrive. It's a great boardgame for age 3 up to around age 8, with simple rules similar to snakes and ladders ,and easy understanding of ways to move forwards and back. The candland graphics appeal to all children. Will encourage colour recognition and simple counting for very young children, and is therefore the ideal first boardgame for 3 year olds.

5.0 out of 5 stars great for 8 year olds, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter has the 3 books in this series, and loves them all. She is 8 and they are perfect for reading by herself with humour that appeals to an 8 year old, and vocabulary and content that is suitable for an 8 year old to enjoy and stretch their knowledge a bit.

This review is from: Ghost Hunt Solo Gun (Toy)
Billy BOnes Ghost Hunt game is much more fun with two guns than just one. An essential addition to the game so you can compete against others. The original game comes with only one gun. Remember to sync the gun at the start of each game by pointing it at billy's large eye and firing, or at one of the ghosts and firing.

1.0 out of 5 stars awful - avoid if you liked the first book, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved the first book and couldn't wait to read this one. The first 3/4 of the book are awfully dull and seemed to be just non stop crude sex scenes with little plot or story line inbetween. I do not believe for a second the original author had much to do with this book. She has maybe written a broad outline of a plot, and then some misdirected ghost writer has tried to turn this into another '50 shades' book, but without any writing ability or finesse. The sex scenes are embarrasing to read and crude. I ended up deleting the book off my kindle I was so embarrased someone would stumble on it. There is a glimmer of the first book towards the last quarter of the book, but that quickly becomes too drawn out and boring too. I was disappointed beyond belief. This review is unlikely to put you off if you liked the first book - I too read some poor reviews and chose not to believe them. But I felt so let down I couldn't stop myself from at least sharing my disappointment, and to add a word of warning to others that this is just crude porn with almost no story line til you are almost all the way through the book, and by then you will be so bored you are skim reading only half the content anyway.
