4.0 out of 5 stars Great value, fun band for kids, 30 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My 7 year old son loves this. I was a bit reluctant to buy one, as a lot of the reviews said it was more suitable for younger children - but my son had some birthday money, and asked for one of these.
So far he's really enjoyed wearing it, and really likes setting up/unlocking different "pets". We've also installed the ipad app to collect more content for the watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Forgettable, 14 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Monuments To An Elegy (Audio CD)
As with most of Billy's output since The Pumpkins split for the first time, this is an album of tracks which are at best "ok" but ultimately forgettable.
It's been a sad decline, and as a massive fan since Gish it's not easy to post a negative review but this album sounds like a bunch of poor b-sides from Machina. The Pumpkins ditched being a rock band a long time ago, so this is "alt pop" pumpkins but with nothing as memorable as the quieter tracks from Mellon Collie, Adore, etc.. It's a real shame but I can't recommend this at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best e-reader light in my opinion, 17 Mar. 2012
I've tried a few lights for my Kindle. The first was a cheap single LED type, which was so bright I may aswell have had the lights on in the bedroom! Needless to say, that was quickly discarded. I've tried 3 different types since then but nothing has really done the job without faults/issues.
After reading the reviews for the Kandle I thought I'd give it a try - and I'm glad I did. I've only had mine for 24 hours so can't really comment on battery life, etc... but it illuminates my Kindle perfectly without being too bright. It's not heavy at all, so clipping it on doesn't make the Kindle too bulky, etc... For the price, I think it's excellent value. By far the best light I've tried.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another top notch thriller!, 18 July 2006
This review is from: Looking Good Dead (Hardcover)
This is the second thriller from Peter James to feature his latest character, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace. And just like the first (the superb "Dead Simple"), it's a very exciting page-turner you won't want to put down. If you're a fan of crime novels, you won't be disappointed with this. Buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 29 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Left (Audio CD)
As other reviews elsewhere have stated, "Left" takes over from where "The Lost Riots" left off - minus the melodramatic, lengthy dramatics and orchestra (having said that, there is still a fair amount of strings, etc...)

"Left" is a leaner, meaner affair though, and each track is a killer. The tempo is generally fast paced, with 3-4 slower, sombre tracks. You'll find yourself loving each track for different reasons, as the album is fairly eclectic. Reminiscent of everyone from "OK Computer"-era Radiohead, Oasis, BRMC & The Editors. For me, this is the finest album of 2006. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive compilation, 3 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Singles (Audio CD)
OK, so the last thing we need right now is another New Order compilation! And it more than smacks of the record company cashing in on New Order's back catalogue - but most fans admit that until now, there hasn't been a decent follow-up to 1987's "Substance". Each attempt since then has been extremely flawed - the shockingly bad "best of" released in 1994 didn't contain classics such as Ceremony or Temptation, and although "Retro" contained some gems, it was far too messy & fanboy-ish for it's own good. The import-only "International" wasn't bad, but being a single disc again meant that important songs missed the tracklisting.
With "Singles" you get two discs containing every single New Order have released to date. Nothing is frustratingly omitted, and there are 7" versions of Ceremony, Temptation & Thieves Like Us available on CD for the first time. Finally, a comprehensive "best of" compilation of one of the most influential groups of the last 20+ years. Some of the greatest songs ever written are contained on these two little discs - buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars First class crime thriller!, 2 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Dead Simple (Hardcover)
Peter James' latest novel, which introduces us to his latest character - Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, is a twist-laden feast for any fan of crime novels. Excellently written and superbly researched, it will have you hooked from start to finish.
It has everything you look for in a good old fashioned thriller - interesting characters you care about, original plot, unexpected twists, great pacing & plenty of nail biting set pieces. I couldn't wait to finish this book, and was delightfully satisfied when I did. Definitely recommended!
