The Trinity Game
The Trinity Game
Price: £3.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Just not that good, 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Trinity Game (Kindle Edition)
Stock characters, shady organisations, and questions raised that the author, in the end, just didn't know how to answer. All this led to a lackluster ending that I couldn't bring myself to care about. Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 22 Jan 2014

This is a great piece of kit. I'd read some reviews which questioned the build quality of the Vox headphone amp series, but now it's arrived I'm not too worried about this. As long as I don't smash it against anything and am relatively careful, I think it'll be fine.

The tone quality and range of sounds you can get even from this one amp is great, and I happily played away and lost track of time, nearly missing a business meeting....

I've also ordered the classic rock headphone amp, and after trying this one my expectations are running high. Great stuff.

Having committed money to my iphone, I rest easier knowing that it is encased in this very durable and protective casing.


Screwtape Letters DVD Dramatized (Focus on the Family Radio Theatre)
Screwtape Letters DVD Dramatized (Focus on the Family Radio Theatre)
by Focus On The Family
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £28.31

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting interpretation, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've always had an idea in my head about what Screwtape would sound like - very reserved and clipped. Andy Serkis does a great job here of putting a whole new spin on things as the under-secretary of a department in hell.

The dramatisation brings out the themes and characters in a whole new way. It wasn't cheap, but worth the money and a great addition to my Lewis collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sci-fi series, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Space Trilogy (Kindle Edition)
Coming back to re-read this series after a few years, it's as good now as it ever was. My favourite book of the 3 is the third, 'That Hideous Strength,' though plenty of people would disagree and claim that honour for the second, 'Perelandra.'

It's still astonishing that the writer of the Narnia books and several theological works could so successfully turn his hand to sci-fi. Philosophical and theological themes still underpin the books, but these add to the complexity of the ideas being explored.

Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems good, 4 Dec 2013

I have no idea how to play this. It's a Christmas present for my daughter. However, it looks of good quality and arrived undamaged in good packaging. No complaints here.


Jack A Life Of C S Lewis
Jack A Life Of C S Lewis
by George Sayer
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Still my favourite Lewis biography, 4 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sayer writes with warmth and knowledge of Lewis, without becoming sentimental or covering over defects in a gloss of nostalgia. A must for all Lewis fans.


The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass: Adrian Plass and the Church Weekend
The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass: Adrian Plass and the Church Weekend
Price: £7.19

3.0 out of 5 stars A good finale, 7 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Adrian is older, wiser, and unfortunately slightly less interesting. The best years of Adrian Plass are preserved for us in the past books, but this was a fitting finale. A good way to catch up with and say goodbye to an old friend. And say thanks for the laughs and memories.

1.0 out of 5 stars truly awful, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A book entirely without merit, and, with so many good business books out there to read, a complete waste of time.
