5.0 out of 5 stars Compulsive Missing, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's odd how my view of just who or what is doing this has changed over the course of these 3 books and I feel David's view has changed too although he's not giving away what he thinks it is. The fact that there are disappearances from around the world challenges what I thought was just a North American thing.
It was nice this book added more stories to areas already covered and pointed out more clusters and types of people that go missing that has made me think even more.
David has done sterling work on covering this little known topic and everyone who hikes or enjoys the outdoors should read these books and be aware of just what might be in the National Parks and Wilderness areas or anywhere in the world. My heart goes out to the families that have lost loved ones and may never know what has happened to them and in some cases never find them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better, 4 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The second book is even more compelling than the first. I read it twice back to back to make sure I didn't miss a thing. Paulides almost gets close to reveling what he thinks is responsible for all these mysterious disappearances and then backs off. I would love to know what he thinks as I can't make up my mind! There seem to be at least explanations for just what is going on.

A great read that will have you telling everyone about it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, 4 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Never has a book been fought over by 2 people to read at the same time or provoked such lengthy discussions! I first heard about this book on Coast to Coast AM as the stories told were so strange. After reading this I can still find no answers to why these people go missing, why some are found alive, some dead and some no trace of is ever found. The few stories usually by young children of being with the 'big bear' are very thought provoking. I'm glad I live in the UK and hiking isn't as dangerous pastime as in the US!

This is a story that needs to be heard by as many people as possible and should be read by all SAR teams worldwide.

It will haunt you and fill your conversations with others for many months to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monsters everywhere!, 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved this book, Nick's down to earth writing style is brilliant and I love how he even puts in what he's been eating! The fact that this was set in the UK and places where I have been made it a compelling read. I can just imagine the 3 of them in the campervan parked up on Bodmin moor telling scary tales to each other. The story about the Cormons was intriguing too. If you love forteana in the UK and want to find out some tales you may not have heard of, buy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars The mystery of an embellishing machine explained!, 27 Jan 2012
This review is from: Creative Embellishing (Paperback)
Great book full of inspirational ideas that are easy to achieve. Explains clearly what you need to make similar projects and takes you through step by step with clear photographs. A great way to start to learn just what your machine can do if you're pointed in the right direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars The mystery of embellishing explained, 27 Jan 2012
This book is a great inspiration. Clearly written and explained how to achieve so many different types of textile art with an embellishing machine. It sits next to my machine so I can dive in and figure how to do something and achieve the effect I'm after, without lots of head scratching and mistakes. I've managed to create some really beautiful items and I've only had my machine and this book for just over a week. Highly recommended for amyone wishing to start embellishing and creating fabrics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Franklyn, 21 April 2010
This review is from: Franklyn [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
I thought it was a clever film. Reminded me of Imajica by Clive Barker which is a great read. Cast were good, plot was intriguing and it was fun guessing how it would all pan out.
