1.0 out of 5 stars A poor screenplay. Helen Fielding obviously desperate for cash., 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved the original Bridget Jones books. Now it seems Helen Fielding is all about sizism (you can't possibly attract a man if you are *horror* a size 16), being selfish and irresponsible as a parent and shoehorning Hugh Grant in so he can make it into the film.

It only cost me a couple of . Still a waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkling!, 22 Dec 2010
This is a fab book for those wanting the *motivation* to kick start their mumazing business ideas. Susan is encouraging and inspirational and the sparkles philosophy really makes you sparkle! Gemma's story is great, and easy to relate to, and the use of real-life mums makes this book very practical.

It isn't a step by step guide, but it is a really good read. I can't wait for her next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different but definitely worth it, 7 Sep 2008
This review is from: Nation (Hardcover)
This latest offering from Terry Pratchett is not a discworld novel, instead it is a standalone story set on what would be a South Pacific island were it not set in a parallel universe.

Still, even in such a place, the customs and practices of the trousermen will be familiar, as will the tentative romance, the power of loss and the need of the human species to stop, every so often, and ask why.

Mau is an unlikely hero, but inspires both heart breaking sorrow and pride in his strength of character. Daphne is, as many of Pratchett's heroines, courageous, slightly sarcastic and steadfast in her uncertainty.

This book is darker than previous novels, Pratchett sometimes spears through the heart with the simplest of lines, and tragedy is a necessary undercurrent throughout the tale. At the end of the book, the author invites you to think, although surely by this point, the thinking has already begun.

A different, but rewarding novel. Probably not a good initiation into Pratchett's world, but a must for those who appreciate the subtleties of his fantastic writing skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book (please), 30 Dec 2006
I think this book is really good, although I may be biased, being a contributing author.

Nevertheless, Leaf's philosophy of providing bite-sized morsels of literary amusement for those awkward to fill rubbish areas of time, like waiting for the bus, or at the doctor's surgery (not whilst being examined) is admirably upheld.

Some of the shortest ones are absolutely cracking, Holiday on Planet Earth being a shining example.

Buy this book now!

PS I didn't write Holiday on Planet Earth by the way. I am not THAT cheeky
