4.0 out of 5 stars Top Game!, 5 Dec. 2006
Had and played this game a year ago and i'm only writing a review for it now because I haven't found another decent space shooter since.

You get to pilot a big selection of the crafts from the Star Trek universe, the arenas are big and a lot of fun to fly around and dog-fight in.

The graphics are cool and the missions get more challenging as you progress.

The story's really good too, a flip-side Star Trek timeline to what we know!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Piece Of Kit!, 4 Dec. 2006
Had my Sony NW HD5S for about 2 years now and have to say it's great!

It might be only 20 GB but with the ATRAC 3+ compression software that shrinks files to a quarter of their original size I doubt I'll ever own enough songs to completely fill it.

Love the fact that you can plug it into (as far as I'm aware) any stereo system so you don't need any speaker add-ons like with the i-pod.

The battery lasts for ages but it does take a good couple of hours to charge, but if you're only doing that every couple of weeks, who cares!

The ATRAC 3 system is also easy to install and simple to use and manage.

Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Being There Yourself!, 1 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Live Era '87-'93 (Audio CD)
This album is brilliant, you can feel all the passion and energy of the band and from the fans.

Seen Guns N Roses a few times and this live collection captures everything perfectly especially Axl's voice and Slash's guitar riffs.
All the favourites are here too although if you're willing to wait a few weeks for delivery, get the Japanese import version as that has "Coma" as a bonus track which is right up there as one of their best songs.

Bottom line? The best Guns N Roses/Live album ever!

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite Good, 1 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Deception Point (Paperback)
As a stand alone book this is not a bad old thriller, but, having now read all of Dan Brown's books I realise that he's just stuck to exactly the same formula used in those others.

The story is quite interesting, a meteorite discovery by NASA in the Antarctic being authenticated by various "civilian" scientists that unravels very quickly.

It goes along at a nice pace, and as mentioned, has a lot of Dan Brown twists and surprises.

After The Da Vinci Code I reckon this is next best. Yeah, not bad at all really.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!, 16 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Pompeii (Paperback)
Just finished reading Pompeii and have to say it's brilliant.

I'm not one for historical novels or period dramas and so when it was bought for me I didn't read it straight away. Silly boy.

With the impending disaster looming in the shape of Mount Vesuvius the author tells the story of a newly hired aqueduct engineer investigating why the water has stopped flowing to the surrounding towns of the volcano and where his predecessor has disappeared to.

You really get a feel for the period in time that the book is set in with vivid descriptions of the people and mainly the places.

A must read!

Read the book because the film just doesn't convey.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice Idea, Not So Nicely Executed, 7 Nov. 2006
Yep, me too, I bought this at an airport thinking it would be a good way of passing a few hours.

But as soon as you start reading you realise that you're not going to be challenged or stimulated by the premise, just let down.

I do think it's a great idea for a story, but unfortunately it hasn't been told all that well here.

Shame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grabbed Me & Held On, 9 May 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love a good yarn, especially when it incorporates a bit of fact as you get more of a sense that what you're reading could actually have happened, and let's face it, it could have!

The story spans a number of generations beginning with the initial expedition of our 1st protagonist, Madoc, and his life is well documented although I suppose some of the other generation's are skipped over quite quickly, but I don't think this is a bad thing and so keeps the pace moving at a rate where you want to read on.

A few reviewers have balked at some of the graphic/explicit content that occurs during the story and it is understandable but you have to realise we are not talking about "civilised" 21st century man here but borderline "savages" still learning, so this should be put into perspective.

Basically I thought this was a good old read and it would encourage me to look at what else the author has written.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Important Book, 23 Mar. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book uncovers startling similarities between nearly all religions, past & present, and shows what their common goal was, to get man closer to his God through the power of voice/sound and the resulting resonance at certain religous locations.

It makes astounding statements then backs them up with well researched fact and results, some stemming from the experiments of the author and his colleagues.

The conclusions that this book makes are amazing and it's a shame that not more people with access to this particular field and the areas/places that it mentions have not also researched it and joined in the debate, it seems that important a subject!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Than Just A Thriller..., 28 Feb. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...although it makes for a great way to convey the facts that this book contains on things like the roots of Christianity.
If you're interested in the Holy Grail, Knights Templar and so on then this book will introduce you to the subjects and information in a very clear, concise and digestable way.
I'd recommend the illustrated version because if, like me, you're not an art buff of any sort, the pictures come in very handy.
All in all, a top read!
