A most interesting story about a life in magical show business and just how hard it can be. I enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed this fast-moving story, 21 July 2014
Suggest read the first book, the Wonder Worker, first. Thoroughly enjoyed this fast-moving story, with a lot of twists and surprises. If you don't want to be surprised and dare I suggest it, encouraged, by the hints of a highly topical aspect of Christian love then don't read this book; if you are prepared to have an open mind, then enjoy the controversial dilemmas the story throws up.

Loved it. This is the third book and it's best to read the three in order.
This book homes in on a very different, but attractive, character again and the story races through his rather alternative lifestyle and is decidedly entertaining with a thriller element. Again, plenty going on; the sharp reality of what-is-love weaves a thread through the novel and the place of the healing power of Jesus Christ is put under a spotlight..

Loved it. This is a rollicking good novel with plenty going on. Gorgeous to have a hint of cutting edge and highly relevant Christianity alive & kicking in the 21st century. And yes, the clergy have failings too, all too human.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes sense in today's world, 5 Mar 2014

If the Bible to me is going to mean anything in today's world, the vividness of this contemporary version is great. Also it's pretty quick to look up different books & specific verses

2.0 out of 5 stars Foxy sock /stocking aid, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived beautifully on time and I really hoped it could be a useful present for my elderly father.
Regrettably this is a useless piece of kit. It was given to my father, now 94, with some stiffness and small disabilities; however hard he tried, his elderly hands could not squeeze the aid to put a sock on it adequately in readiness for using to put on his feet.
So we tried it round the rest of the party (assorted ages, this being a 4-generation party) at the table on Christmas Day; although we could put the sock onto the aid, not one of us could not effectively get ito onto our feet, so I've brought it back home to return when I get a moment. We even went on-line on Christmas Day to check we were using it correctly, but the u-tube demonstrations are of rather longer aids (with young people as demonstrators). So it generated some entertainment, but is all also rather sad - and not quite what the designer intended.

Knew exactly what we wanted - my father has had one every year and he's now 94.
It was bliss to be able to order it on line and not to have to struggle into a bookshop.

A very useful book. Good illustrations with the minimum of writing and lots of opportunities to discuss the impending arrival whilst making No 1 feel special.

Sensible non-gender specific book that is decidedly fit for purpose. Excellent drawings and big brother loves it. This is a useful book which can be passed on to other families in the final months of pregnancy.
