Light Before Day
Light Before Day
by Christopher Rice
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Like walking through treacle., 29 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Light Before Day (Paperback)
I eagerly anticapted the release of Christopher Rice's third book as I really enjoyed the first two but this novel was like attempting to walk through treacle. I just couldn't get into it and the fact that I felt that there were really too many characters, none of them really likeable, and the plot got a bit too complicated at times, conspired against me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read but a few mistakes., 21 Jan. 2007
When I first started reading this book, skimming through various chapters I was pleased by how easy to read it is and the sections aren't that long that you become bored.

Yet when I read more of the book I discovered quite a few obvious mistakes, for example Prince Edward is HRH the Earl of Wessex, not the Duke of Wessex. Stupid mistakes and lazy proofreading like this really put me off paying too much attention to the book and despite it's readability I would recommend one of Debrett's excellent books instead.


Multifarious Poems of Mister Pok
Multifarious Poems of Mister Pok
by Peter O'Keefe
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Ecletic poems., 29 Sept. 2006
This is a great little book full of mainly quite funny poems, written with great observations of life in Britain, in particularly in Liverpool. There are quite a lot of partly auto biographical poems and I can guarantee it won't fail to put a smile on your face.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful classic., 10 April 2006
The Everyman's Library Children's Classics are a wonderful collection of traditionally bound books with beautiful illustrations. 'Just So Stories' is of course a classic. Definately worth making a set of these books up.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a comedy that is actually laugh out loud funny. Inoffensive and lighthearted, it's one of the great comedy sitcoms of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!, 10 April 2006
I can't remember the last time that I read a book that was so laugh out funny! Ideal for skimming, or you can easily find yourself reading through a chapter. This is one of those books that you read and think that it would make an ideal present for so many people. A fantastic buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated., 10 April 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderfully funny lightweight comedy that I just about rememebr from when it was on television and I don't know why it's only recently been released. The fact that there's something of an ongoing storyline adds more interest and it's definately worth watching if you've never seen it before, especially considering the state of some of the shows on TV today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album., 10 April 2006
This review is from: Something for Everybody (Audio CD)
I bought this album primarily for 'Everybody's Free' but it's a great CD, a couple of the songs are a bit less hit and more miss but 'Happy Feet' is definately a highlight and 'Che Gelida Manina' is a wonderful contrast to the rest of the mostly remixed songs.
