Killer Move
Killer Move
by Michael Marshall
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 10.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Somebody's messing with your S***, 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Killer Move (Hardcover)
For every thousand or so meh-writers out there, there's one that comes along who knows exactly how to get under your skin. Michael Marshall is one of those writers. From the very beginning of KILLER MOVE, Michael, pulls us, pushes us, lures us through the story with his engaging prose and easily likable characters -- which, as in so often with his books, he either tortures in some way or kills off completely. The b*****d.
From start to finish, a great read -- and the ending, without giving anything away, is to be loved and hated for exactly the same reason.
Recommended for serious readers, and fans of crime/mystery fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars SNAKE!, 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I LOVE the Metal Gear series, and to finally receive my favorite edition (Snake Eater) in truly awe-inspiring HD was, erm... awesome. Same experience. Better visuals (and no bugs, as far as i could tell, which when compared to other HD collections released recently -- Silent Hill, for example -- is a small miracle).
Buy this game. Just do it.
Recommended for anyone who likes amazingness in a video game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Effortless Tire Inflation!, 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's not much to say about this product. It inflates tires, yes -- but it does it FAST, with an easy to understand interface and tidy-looking carry-case. Sure, there are probably cheaper tire inflators out there, but at least with this one you know where you stand thanks to its simplistic, no-b******* design. And when you get a flat in the middle of the night and it's raining, the last thing you wanna be doing is trying to read the instructions, am i right?
Recommended for people who enjoy inflating things. Mainly car tires. Would probably work on a blow-up doll, though, if that's your sorta thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Capital Wasteland, smoothskins!, 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fallout 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
So, Fallout 3 gets five stars. And why? Because it is inarguably one of the greatest, most addictive games of the past decade -- that's why. Great plot, outstanding gameplay, and an environment to explore unlike any other you might have already encountered in a game, no other title offers as much in pure entertainment as Bethesda's Fallout 3. From mowing down Super Mutants In the Capital Wasteland, to robbing a traveling caravan of traders (yes, I did that. More than once. You will too), you will never get bored roaming, exploring, and murdering unsuspecting fellow-wanderers for their loot.
Aside from the looting/murdering, the game has many side quests for you to seek out and explore -- so many in fact that it's a wonder anybody has ever completed the main quest! -- and a unique karma meter, letting you decide if you wanna be the good guy or the bad guy.
Recommended for anybody who enjoys brilliant games with great gameplay and a great plot.
(Be a bad guy. It's way more fun. And you can sneak a grenade into a person's pocket and watch them go Kaboom!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy That Minty Goodness, 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a gym-goer for many years, i have tried every supplement under the sun. Not all of them are as high in protein per-serving as Gold Standard, nor nearly as tasty.
Incorporated with a well-balanced diet, Gold Standard is an essential tool in your muscle-building arsenal.
Recommended for fellow gym-goers looking to put on muscle.

*ALWAYS consult your doctor before starting any supplement. Yes, even if only protein.*

4.0 out of 5 stars And Love will overcome..., 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It took me until three-quarters through reading 'Odd Thomas' to decide whether i liked it or not. At first, Odd seemed a little self-righteous (and, if i can be honest, a little annoying); however, crossing into the final act, and after a notably brilliant story-twist, i decided i actually liked him, after all. Neatly constructed prose means the story starts off at a steady pace and stays that speed all the way through (with exception to the tale's climax, of course).
Arguably the first and best edition in the Odd Thomas series of books.
Recommended for fans of mystery novels, and novels with a supernatural theme.


Every Dead Thing: Introducing Private Investigator Charlie Parker
Every Dead Thing: Introducing Private Investigator Charlie Parker
by John Connolly
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.91

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint of heart, 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A tale as dark as it is mysterious, 'Every Dead Thing' will stay in your mind long after putting the book down. Rife with great imagery, great dialogue, and near-perfect characterization, John Connolly proves he is a writer to take notice of in this first of the Charlie Parker novels.

Recommended for anybody who enjoyed The Silence Of The Lambs (Thomas Harris) and books with equally dark subject matter.


Mockingbird (Miriam Black 2)
Mockingbird (Miriam Black 2)
by Chuck Wendig
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.40

4.0 out of 5 stars Mockingbird, 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with 'Blackbirds' (the first entry in the Miriam Black series of novels), 'Mockingbird' is a fantastically written book, filled to the brim with sharp, witty dialogue and instantly likable characters. And profanity. LOTS of profanity.
Prose is razor sharp, and Chuck's ability to make you hate and love characters is truly remarkable.
Aside from some sloppy editing, this book is a solid read with an intriguing tale.
Recommended for anyone who likes their fiction dark, their protagonists complicated, and their profanity in abundance.

4.0 out of 5 stars My x-box is going to kill me!, 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's rare that a product you order arrives looking EXACTLY as it did online. Usually, there's a sigh of despair a you unravel your purchase to find it either smaller, less attractive, or in a hell of a lot worse condition than the photograph led you to believe.
This was not one of those times.
If anything, i'd have to say that it looks even BETTER than it did when i dragged the cursor over the add-to-basket button a week earlier.
Recommended for anyone who is a complete badass. Like me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Miriam Black knows how you're going to die..., 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a fan of Chuck Wendig's blog, i have wanted to read this novel for quite some time. I'm glad i finally have.
Sharp, witty prose, with not a word wasted, this is urban-fantasy at its very best.
Recommended for anybody who a, enjoys fast-paced fiction, and b, doesn't mind a lot of cuss words thrown at them. And there's a lot in Blackbirds. (if you don't believe me, check out 'The Collected Profanity Of Blackbirds And Mockingbirds' on YouTube -- you'll see what i mean).
If, like me, you don't mind a girl with a dirty mouth, give this book a go. You wont regret it.
(also check out the sequel 'Mockingbirds')
