1.0 out of 5 stars boring boring, 2 Mar 2006

I bought this purely on the rave reviews that this band have been recieving.How wrong they all are! Fuzzy tunes and those famous harmonies are just plain noisy.

4.0 out of 5 stars sweet little tale, 13 Nov 2005
Bouncy text and plenty of humour with a little pathos thrown in. My five year old loves this story and we both know it off by heart but it does not stop her from requesting this over and over again. Good fun and really considering I have read it hundreds of times, that is saying something!

Peaceful bedtime wind down with the finest illustrations that I have ever seen in a children's book. I loved this book and my three little girls did too

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I've found Serenity, 20 Jun 2005
If Joss Wheedon worked for you wouldn't you let him have a free hand? The man prints money. Buffy and Angel have run and run and raked it in every step of the way. Firefly deserved to as well
The show was produced under pressure and that undoubtedly brought out the best in the writers. Each episode is character driven, with impressive action and a fast pace but does not neglect humour or poingnacy
All of the characters are appealing, even Jayne the rotter.You really do end up caring about them. And while the women are undoubtedly eye candy by anyone's standards, they also possess a definition and presence that is normally absent from most sci fi.
Also, the music is a treat, enhancing the mood in fine balance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good fantasy, bad book, 3 Jun 2005
This review is from: A Song for Arbonne (Paperback)
G G Kay is an excellent author. The plots are complex and character driven. The setting is well researched and he pays exquisite attention to detail.
Song for Arbonne is a fine example of his work and should be worth five stars but the utterly trite ending sucks the book down to mediocrity. A great shame.
