Beautiful shoes, but slightly larger than I'd expected. Will need to buy insoles

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, 11 Feb. 2014
Really good first novel. I couldn't put it down! I felt a connection with the characters and thought the twist was not obvious in the slightest! Lack of fifth star was because I'd have liked it to be longer!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy, light read, 3 Jan. 2013
Good book, read it in one day! Light hearted read, great for lifting the winter blues. Not full of depth or particularly gutsy, but a very nice book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing, Shocking, but wholly viewable, 18 July 2010
This review is from: Precious [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
This film is not comfortable viewing, not by any stretch of the imagination. It is shocking to watch, and made me gasp with horror at some of the scenes. I found the content and story terribly sad, and cried more than I have cried at any film since The Green Mile (also, terribly disturbing, that affected me for days, if not weeks afterwards). Despite all of that, this film is a true gem. Highlighting some of the more tragic stories of not only the projects in the States, but of anywhere worldwide, Precious is an incredible, powerful, courageous story of someone who desperately wants to turn their life around; to make life different for her own children. This film thourougly drew me in. Made me think that these were people, not characters in a film. The acting was sublime, the directing was innovative and the story was powerful beyond belief. Watch this film, drink it in, and be prepared to think about it for days....

This is lovely - a really beautiful toy for children. It thouroughly inspires children to be creative and imaginative, and altogether isn't a bad price for a great toy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant!, 7 April 2010
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
My husband recommended that I write a review for this as we had a brilliant game together with our 6 yr old and Grandad! It is a new take on snakes and ladders - although with the element of risk. Player dares to turn over cards - and it is decided upon the upturned cards whether you move forward or backwards (banana skins are the indication that you move backwards the amount of bananas you have turned over this round). This really is a brilliant game, and actually not too short either. When all the banana skin cards have been found, you mix together all the previously turned over cards and start again, keeping your monkeys in the same position. The game is ultimately about taking risks and learning to evaluate how much chance there is of going backwards, and therefore losing the game. For the record, Grandad won and the 6 yr old came next, leaving Mummy and Daddy a very poor last place shared!!! Brilliant!

This review is from: Something New [DVD] (DVD)
Lovely movie - although don't get it if you are thinking along the lines of a chick-flick with gusto. Not a lot really happens, but delightful just the same. At the price that Amazon are selling, it's definitely worth it, and I must say, having watched it once, I am now watching it again! Grows on you! If you are a Simon Baker fan, it's lovely! I'd rate a 7.5 out of 10!

This review is from: North & South [DVD] (DVD)
I am not going to make this lengthy as the other reviewers have said all there is to say - and more - but I just had to add that this is quite honestly, my favourite period drama. I couldn't help but be seduced by Richard Armitage as John Thornton, and Daniela Denby-Ashe is brilliant. Sinead Cusack is a marvelous matriarch, and this is an all round fabulous buy! I am ordering 4 - presents for all the women-folk in my family!!!
