Tremor (The Tremor Cycle)
Tremor (The Tremor Cycle)
by Ryan Mark
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Well deserved acclaim for this debut novel., 15 Nov. 2014
Tremor has been billed mostly as a dystopia, but could quite easily be categorised as fantasy or adventure. As a teenager I read many adventure/fantasy books, but haven't read many as an adult. The book is written with teenagers in mind, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. It is easy to read and well paced with enough twists in the plot to draw you in, keep you guessing and give you plenty of surprises. The book delights the reader with characters that care deeply about each other and their world, in turn you find yourself very in tune with them and hoping against the odds that they will all survive.

The last chapters have a couple of open ended twists that leave you wanting more and wondering what happens next.

We have bought a copy for our 11 year old niece for Christmas.

Here's to the next book in the 'cycle'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best children's CD by far!, 17 Aug. 2014

This review is from: Children's Favourites (Audio CD)
I saw Simon Mayer in concert about 15 years ago and could vaguely remember the 'spider song'. I bought this to keep my 5 year old occupied on a very long journey and we ended up listening to it throughout our week long holiday. The CD includes instrumentals, short sketches and songs. The music ranges in style from classical to folk, taking in world music along the way. It features a wide range of instruments and the singers are pleasant to listen to, unlike some children's CDs. The musicians have worked with children in schools, so they know how to put a good song together. They are also both well respected musicians in their own rights. I wasn't sure if my husband would like it, as he's not into folk music, but he loves it. I would heartily recommend this for children and it's also enjoyable for adults too - bonus!

SKB 1SKB-444 Sculptured Violin Case 4/4 Size
SKB 1SKB-444 Sculptured Violin Case 4/4 Size

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard case with clasps, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted an old fashioned violin case like the ones I had as a child. Having had a zipped case for only a few years, both zippers recently crumbled away, leaving the case useless for moving my violin anywhere. I was torn between choosing this case, as it had positive reviews, or a Jakob Winter JW 51015 GreenLine 4/4 Full Size Shaped Violin Case, which had no reviews and was a bit more expensive. I don't play as often as I would like and have no groups that I play with, so my instrument rarely leaves the house these days.

I chose this case in the end because it is hard and has clasps and was about £20 less than the aforementioned Winter's case. Since it has arrived, I am pleased with the exterior of the case. The exterior is exactly what I wanted.

I'm slightly disappointed with the finish on the interior of the case as the plastic compartments feel very flimsy and as with another reviewer, the bow holder arrived detached as the screw was not long enough to hold it in place. The bow holder clips are also a bit strange and the bottom one doesn't seem properly aligned, although the bow seems to stay in place.

There seems to be a massive gap in the prices between the £25 - £40 cases and then the £90 I paid for this one. I expected a better finish on the interior for the price.

I wanted a CD of carols, not Christmas songs, for my 4 year old son. Some CDs are too child orientated, but this one is done very nicely, so that it appeals to children without driving adults insane.

Love the launch bay and all the sound effects. But if you only want to splash out on one Octonauts toy, I'd recommend the Gup X.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gup X - great toy!, 17 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well package toy. I wasn't sure how much use this would get, but my 4 year old boy loves it. He loves shooting the sea slime disks and he likes launching the Octo Ski Buggy. He finds it a bit tricky to open up the back of the toy and the windscreen comes off a bit too easily, which frustrates him a little. However, he pushes it around the floor and loves all the bits that go with it.
