5.0 out of 5 stars Ball-bouncingly funny game, 16 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Outstanding game for after dinner parties. Set a time limit, make sure everyone is well-oiled and don't invite anyone who is 'PC'

This review is from: Generation War [DVD] (DVD)
This German mini-series follows the fortunes of five friends through the war. There is the usual mix of characters, but the improbability factor (e.g. one of the group is a Jew and the others all socialise openly with him in pre-war Germany) begins to irritate by the third episode. Still a good yarn provided you treat is as such.

Does what it promised to do. I put it on the wrong way round first, but that was my fault.

Utter pants. The screen resolution is so poor writing is indecipherable. A ZX81 had higher resolution than this. Plugged it in, switched it on, looked, unplugged it, packed it up and returned it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing Something, 26 Sept. 2014
This book should be better than it is. The plot is fine, the fantasy created world is ok, and there's a pretty standard mix of characters. However, the ensemble is like a bland curry. The prose is clunky and the descriptive passages appear tacked on as padding, rather than enriching the storyline. The events are too predictable and unemotional. The banter misses and the character development is erratic, making you feel irritated rather than sympathetic to their plight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great enteraining read, 17 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Shock Diamonds (Kindle Edition)
This is the third book I've read in this series, and it is the most far fetched. Fatal boarding was simply outstanding, Deep Crossing was a bit wierd because the main character, Adrian Tarn, suddenly changes from being a rebellious security officer to a hot shot pilot/racer. Except RJ, the other characters also seem to change their background skills to suit the storyline (e.g. Wilson who suddenly becomes some black ops character). BUT…! Who cares? Don't analyse, just read and enjoy, it's a ripping yarn!

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy!!!!, 15 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Battle Over Normandy [DVD] (DVD)
So bad it is funny. My kid's Nativity play had better acting, a better script and a bigger budget. Do not watch this before getting really really drunk. Better still, just don't buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I wanted so why pay more?, 6 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I shopped around a lot of reviews for a case/keyboard for my new ipad Air. I wanted a case which would provide protection for the back of the ipad - and a detachable keyboard so I could either use the ipad as a laptop or browse without it. Most of the cases came with attached keyboards - which meant you would have to remove the ipad from its case in order to browse and the others were £80 plus - more than I was willing to spend.

Build quality is good, keyboard is light and set up easily, only slight problem is a ridiculously small backspace key, but I guess they had to compromise somewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars An exercise in plagiarism, 17 Jun. 2004
Am I reading a Robert Jordan novel? Terry Goodkind manages to keep up his out-of-the-frying-pan-into-the-fire suspense of his first novel; but the second novel (which sees Richard the Seeker going off to be trained by the Sisters of the Light before his gift kills him) has too many similarities with Robert Jordans Wheel of Time series to be coincidental. A worthy sequel to the first, but spoiled by the lack of originality.
