Dream Cars
Dream Cars
by Rob De LA Rive Box
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic car book by experienced authors, 5 Nov 2007
This review is from: Dream Cars (Hardcover)
This car book is fantastic.

Not only does it provide lots of information on dream cars, more than quite a lot of car books, it's padded on the outside!

Fantastic. 5-star all round.
Also Rob de la Rive Box and Mirco de Cet are fab authors.

Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastically fascinating book, 28 Oct 2007
Quite simply amazing.

It's just so fascinating, although it has LOTS and LOTS of text in it, making it almost a bit like a textbook, it is just so damn interesting!

I'd recommend this book to anyone who is even remotely interested in the extra teresterial, and who wants to find out about aliens & non human intelligent life forms.

More than deserves a 5-star rating.


James May's 20th Century

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating read, 16 Sep 2007
James May's 20th Century, published in hardback on the 6th September 2007, accompanies the fabulous TV series broadcasted on Channel 2.

The book of the TV series is ever more fascinating than the TV series itself, mainly because there's more 'pukka-arity' to it - simply meaning there's more information, and wacky facts about the 20th century.

And being James May, he doesn't describe it in any way humble, or without great lumps of humour stirred into the mixture of interest, funniness, and even some facts that you don't need, or want, to know (!)

So, in conclusion of my review for this fantastic novel (and novelist), this book is one that you can't really put down if you can help it. It comprises qualities, and quantities, which other books don't have -

More than deserves 5 Star +

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - all of you haters are missing out, 15 Sep 2007
This review is from: Eldest (Paperback)
This book is quite simply fantastic. I feel it has slowed down compared to Inheritance Book 1, Eragon, and has a plot which is simply more complex to understand. But don't get the wrong end of the stick - my feeling for this hardback legend are very high.

I have rated it four-star for many reasons, one of which that it is not only the Sunday Times bestseller, but probably the whole world's bestseller. Although the plot is undoubtebly, and suspiciously, similar to Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, Christopher Paolini really has gone one step further with his authoring of books. I find myself reading it on every possible occasion.

To sum up, then, I find this book rather one of a thriller. It can sasisfy all reading & book enthusiasts no matter what, and the only person who is missing out are the haters.

This book will bring satisfaction to those who fluently read, and make non-readers inspired to sit down and open a book.
A fantastic READ - guaranTEED!


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7) [Adult Edition]
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7) [Adult Edition]

5.0 out of 5 stars For this book only, Amazon should create a six star rating!, 28 July 2007
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is a magnificent book.
It comprises some of the most incredible wit, description, wizadry, characters and many more distinctive features that glue your nose to the pages.

This is one of the few stunning books that contains something which can only be described as 'pedigree', something which can fill you with emotion at times, and others you feel simply full of un-ending laughter.

It is a spectacularly action packed seventh, and final, instalment of the inspiring Harry Potter series.

On the outside, this book appears as 607 leaves of paper with two covers and a spine which you can buy for £18.
On the inside, however, it's an entirely different story.

J.K. Rowling has ended the Harry Potter series with one hell of a bang!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fab book - all you haters are missing out!, 24 July 2007
Firstly, the cover of the movie edition book is far better. More striking, and better title font.
(If anyone wants to download the old Eragon font, just search for 'download eragon font' on Google, and it's called 'Inheritance'.

This book is exciting, well described and a fluent, fast paced read. The action and drame it comprises is unbelievable.
Just like another young reviewer said (I presume - as his spelling is not that great) when I get to the end of a chapter I want, and need, to find out what happens next.

If you're looking for a good read this summer, you're looking at a review for it.
Why not buy Eragon and its sequel NOW?
You'll not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful - modern and new words, 20 July 2007
This Collins dictionary consists of mainly new words. There are some words that have been known for a very long time, such as 'devilish', but some fantastically new words!

What a delightful BOOK.
5-star read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teriffic pocket sized book, 20 July 2007
A delightful book. This is better than the large edition, because it fits in your pocket!

Which is best - going on a PlayStation or making a quill pen? This book is fantastic because it shows you how to make and do things that you haven't seen in such a long time! Such as conkers - which will take you back to your childhood! And the 5 knots every boy should know!
How do you make a paper hat, have you ever wondered? Look no further. This pocket sized compendium explains it all.
You can make this book your own, and you know you'll always keep it if you just look at the front cover. It's a chunky little book packed with wit, humour and intelligence - a deserving 5 Star read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific so far!, 18 July 2007
I do not own this book (yet).
But, I have a friend who let me borrow it for a short space of time to scan through and read some - and sure enough it looks terrific. I love the 'terrifying' storylines that it comprises, and also love the wicked taglines, like 'do not read in bed', or another favourite ... 'more stories you'll wish you'd never read'. They are so fetching, and almost "invite" you to read it - and whoever's looking, do.

Anthony Horowitz knows how to create suspense, and knows how to draw the clients in - More Horowitz Horror is a fantastic book!
The first chapter, The Hitchhiker, well - you can already see what route that's taking! A hitchhiker may well hi-jack the car and kill you - or something else that makes you well frightened!
But, come on ... we all know that being scared of horror stories is for wusses!

5.0 out of 5 stars No sugar coating - a fantabulous book, 17 July 2007
This is a fantastic book, and it is so action packed (like Evil Star and Nightrise) that you don't want to stop reading the action packed, devilish and squeamish scenes.

Matt Freeman gets up to his disastrous events and adventures, and finds out that there is no logic ... there is just a gate!

This book, like the rest of the Power of Five series, is a chilling adventure. All other books? Blitzed. Apart from the Anthony Horowitz ones.
