RELIGION: THE ETIOLOGY OF MENTAL ILLNESS
RELIGION: THE ETIOLOGY OF MENTAL ILLNESS
by Henry Jones
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £21.73

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure bigoted atheist dogma dressed up as scientific inquiry., 18 Jun. 2016
This book is breathtakingly bigoted. I am forcibly reminded of the soviet atheists who classified religion as a mental disorder to imprison religious people, torture them, and often lobotomize them. Henry Jones, who claims to be a doctor, sets out to classify religion like this for exactly the same reasons - he wants to create a wave of howling outraged bigotry towards it. Luckily, I don't think that many people will ever read this. Certainly not any kind of medical review board, unless they are using the book to fire Henry for gross negligence and his disgusting views.


Wild Children
Wild Children
by Richard Roberts
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

1.0 out of 5 stars A really awful unedited mess. Preaches slander and bigotry to children., 7 Jun. 2016
This review is from: Wild Children (Paperback)
Poorly thought out and badly written, this book's sole purpose from page one is to teach children to hate and fear religion. This book reads like anti-Semitic Nazi propaganda rewritten to attack Christianity with zero subtly and somehow even less understanding. The writer does not know how Christians act, does not even know how to spell blasphemy, never mind understand what it means. The entire book is a flagrant attempt to brainwash children into thinking of the Church as being full of moustache-twiddling one-dimensional caricatures.

Early on, the main character is screamed at for "BLASPHEME!" (sic) because they are being an unpleasant little snot to the priest, and has to assure the reader that "yes my dad actually speaks like that!". I think this is a rather damning admission: the author actually knows full well that real Christians don't speak like that (outside of a few fringe lunatics). But yet he is using this example to preach bigotry to Children by, ironically, dressing his targets up as bigots. The author makes up lies about the church in order to mock it while expressly avoiding telling the reader what they are really like because he knows full well that he's wrong.

This is a very slow moving film, but lovers of Hitchcock will, of course, love it

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nicely designed, but small., 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They're very nice and strong, but they are very small as well. You aren't going to get much sushi in them. That may be what you want, however. If so, add an extra star as these are beautiful professional-quality containers.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Rapid Clear Spot Treatment, 15ml
Price: £2.50

2.0 out of 5 stars It kinda sorta works, a bit., 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cream is cheap, and that's about all you can say about it. Using this stuff, I think it would take weeks to get rid of a spot. It simply doesn't do the job fast enough to recommend. Hell, your spots will probably vanish on their own before this stuff gets rid of them. My advice: either slap it on every hour or buy a different cream.

Offered by Newtownvideo_EU
Price: £44.78

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Season of Digimon ever made, 12 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A surprisingly gritty take on Digimon from the same director as Serial Experiments Lain, Tamers raises the bar of the franchise to proper animé. With kids who actually act like kids, monsters that kill and absorb each other, and an evil organization hunting them, this is a really good setup for an explosive show. It's just a shame they cut it for Western audiences.

Rivers of London: 1

Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

4.0 out of 5 stars London's Answer to The Dresden Files, 12 May 2016
This review is from: Rivers of London: 1 (Paperback)
Modern British Copper turned wizard? HELL YES! If you can get past the idea that this is a cross between Un Lun Dun and a certain Chicago-based wizard, with a little Harry Potter thrown in, then this is a really, really good read. It's funny, it's inventive, and it really seems to know its stuff about policing. Want to delve into the murky mythology of London and its grimy past? The history in this book is as interesting as the story itself, and if you have ever visited the city you will feel really awesome every time Grant crosses paths with you.

And even better, if you like this, you'll absolutely love Un Lun Dun and Storm Front: The Dresden Files, Book One: 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best profesional quality scents I've ever found!, 10 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These scents are extremely good - exactly what I wanted! Each one has a rich smell that is perfectly balanced without being overpowering. The scents themselves are incredibly authentic and would make very good candles, perfumes, or simply to pour on pot-pourri.

A very robust carry case for your go-to tools. Much more assessable and portable than a lidded case.
