Bob Mould writes magical, wonderful music. Live he has always been stunning. I believe he is massively under appreciated. This is a terrific album, depth and beauty to all the tracks. Consistently great music

Agree with the other reviewer that indicates wild swings in the scales. Moving my toes creates a swing of 14lbs. This is not massively helpful when I am trying to monitor weight daily to meet weight categories for sports.....

This is fantastic - even my youngest (5) can ping this for miles. It flies straight all the time and is fantastic fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top quality sports writing, 26 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
McRae manages to beautifully convey the complexities that surround the fight game. The warmth and compassion that many many fighters display, combined with the petrifying ferocity - and the even more petrifying origins of that aggression - that sustains them. He gives us depressingly predictable insight into the dark heart of boxing, the murkiness and duplicitousness of promoters and the abuse of fighters who deserve better, and even the terrific dangers that fighters subject themselves to. What I especially liked about it was McRae's humility and sensitivity throughout, he never takes his access to the fighters for granted, and gets across his trepidation when confronted with these volatile men. Absolutely great.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that good really, 28 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Green River Rising (Paperback)
Agree with the other readers, that feel that this is cliche ridden and derivative. I am surprised that people enjoyed it so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Television at its best, 25 July 2008
Simon Schama is like the history teacher we should all have had, bringing the rich and fabulous history of Britain to life. Tremendous television and it is sets a benchmark for history programmes to match up to

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent enough, 25 July 2008
My children loved the first two films in the series, and they were good enough for adults as well. Given that we have sat through some childrens films that are utter, utter rubbish - 'Over the Hedge', 'Shark's Tale' - this is nowhere near as bad as some of the reviewers on this site claim. Giving it 1 star is really pompous. The story is okay, the jokes are okay (and appeal to a younger audience) and even the characters are okay. I am not sure what people expect when they go to see an animated film like this. If you are looking for a childrens film that is okay for adults as well, then I believe that this is good as it gets.


The Vorpal Blade
The Vorpal Blade
by Colin Forbes
Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst book I have ever read, 8 July 2008
This review is from: The Vorpal Blade (Paperback)
If I had a pound returned for every character whose 'chin suggested determination', Colin Forbes would need a window cleaning round to fund it. Characters were just appallingly described, with a plot so terribly contrived it is untrue. How he gets a publishing deal is anyone's guess.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated, 15 Feb. 2008
Candy is brilliant in this role as a bumbling detective. Comedy is gentle, but he has hundreds of great lines, this is a greatly underrated film.
