5.0 out of 5 stars What can one say?, 30 May 2013

This review is from: Les Misérables [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
The music and lyrics of Boublil and Schoenberg's stunning musical undoubtedly need trained singers to do full justice to the score, However the superb acting in many ways was compensation, Ann Hathaway's rendition of ' I dreamed a dream ' was heartbreakingly poignant. An outstanding performance I believe was that of Samantha Barks as the tragic Eponine, not only can she act, but she has a wonderful voice. You can't fault the acting, the music or the settings, nor indeed the acting. It's a GEM, but nothing of course will ever beat the original 'Dream Cast'

I read this wonderful book by Ethel M Dell countless years ago (over 40 years)lent it to someone and never got it back.
I loved the story and never forgot it and to find it after all these years is incredible. It's a love story ...yes, but the like of which is quite unique and the bonus of three other stories by Ethel M Dell at this price is a gift beyond words. Enjoy it , you'll never forget it.

Kingdom of the Wicked (Skulduggery Pleasant, Book 7)
I have not personally read all the series, but my grandson began reading them as a grumpy pre-teen, scarcely putting them down except to eat!!!! I think this is high praise indeed and I believe is a good recommendation of the sheer reading pleasure these books generate. They are different and unusual. Let's face it, how often do you meet a detective who is a skeleton? This last one 'Kingdom of the Wicked' he requested as a gift, after obtaining 10GCSEs in August. He has been a discerning and avid reader since childhood, and hopes to teach English and History, and hopefully become a published author himself one day. I thank Derek Landy for the pleasure his unusual but very entertaining series of books has given my grandson.10/10

If you have worked with Crystals this book is for you. If you haven't worked with Crystals a little work might be necessary first. It is well written, by two obviously very knowledgeable people. Though only short (84 pp)it contains a wealth of advice and Information

5.0 out of 5 stars only my opinion, 1 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose the phone, which was a Christmas present from my husband> It is my second touch screen, the first being a Nokia X6, which was really easy to use. This is a beautiiful phone, but not the easiest of things to use, and I intend to get used to it.
If you have the slightest dexterity problem (I have) steer well clear. This is NOT the phone for you! If on the other hand you have nimble fingers it has everything , a really good 5Mp camera, access to every android app, fm radio, mp3 player etc. The text is minute, when sending SMS, and I haven't yet found how to alter it. The complete instructions are web based pdf., and don't come with the box. It also has an exptendable memory, comes with a very good charger, adaptable for car, home or usb. Good solid headphones and USB Cable. I would recommend this phone highly, but do beware if you have the slightest dexterity problem, and I would suggest you buy a stylus, for inputting text. It's brilliant on the internet and with e-mailHTC Wildfire Sim Free Mobile Phone - Black

Michael Ball-Heroes Live Concert DVD
Can't understand why I've been asked to review this as it's not due out until next month, but here goes:-
I'm happy to say I was there in Birmingham the night this wonderful concert was recorded. My daughter bought the tickets as a surprise birthday present for me, and we had a wonderful evening! Michael was his usual scintillating and energetic best. A joy to watch and listen to. His support group and musicians were simply top of the range, and added to the magic of the evening. It was standing ovations all the way through, with Michael singing songs written and recorded by musical HEROES past and present. If you love Michael Ball you can't live without this, he just gets better and better.
By the time this DVD actually comes out I shall have been to the Chichester Festival Theatre to see him in 'Sweeney Todd' (she gloated)!

Bought this for my lovely 40+year old step daughter who can cook beautifully, but had never mastered the art of baking. She has made almost everything in it, and now bakes for her family on a regular basis. None of the cakes stay in the cake box for long, so would recomend this for anyone, not just the beginners

Never received a d-t cable with my phone, goodness knows why as there's no way you can transfer pics from or MP3s to the phone without one. This was brilliant. Inexpensive, and arrived within two days.

Walking in Circles
This lovely sweet and sad CD is sold in aid of Compassion in World Farming. BUy it, it wil make yoou think. If you love and respect chickens as much as I do then you will hate the very idea of battery cages.
Fortunately the campaign to put an end to this diabolical practice has worked.....well almost. You can help. Buy this CD, go to the website of Compassion in World Farming, sign the petitions, help the work, CHECK where your meat, your poultry, your milk and eggs come from. Is it British, or is it just 'packed in UK'? READ the labels. Know what kind of life this animal lived. It matters!

Bought this for my grandson for general school use. He was delighted with it, it's a really useful tool and doesn't weigh a tonne when carried back and forth
