4.0 out of 5 stars Easy and accurate, 28 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great little measuring tape, I appreciated the feature to hook one end to the main body and retract the tape to get a better measurement. The only confusing thing about this is the female and male sides to the tape, as a woman I just couldn't wrap my head around how to use the female side seeing as it's on the inside but as another reviewer said, surely an inch is an inch?

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but slightly predictable, 26 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Willow (Hardcover)
This is one of the better books on suffering with self harm that I have read; I really like how it focused not so much on the act of cutting but of the emotional state behind it, the why. I would definitely recommend it, Willow is an interesting and at times very annoying character (naturally due to what happened she is prone to irrationality and anger.)

[Spoiler]

The only problem I have with the overall storyline is that the secondary character Guy, he helps her through a lot of tough times and then OF COURSE they become attracted to each other and have sex. It just seems so typical that a girl is saved by a strong, intelligent man and she inevitably falls for him.

These are just my personal thoughts on it though.

Overall a pleasant, easy read. I think however is you do self harm be slightly wary of it and some of the scenes can be upsetting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Value for money., 21 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a simple, sleek looking product and pretty cheap, once you realise how to use it (which took me a day or two because the instructions are TOO simple) it's easy and reliable.

The option to change from lbs to kgs to stones is another useful feature.
The only downside being at to do this you have to lift the scale up and press a button on the underside which is tedious if like me you like to see all units in one weigh in.

Overall an easy to use product with nice design and reliable results.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wintergirls, 13 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wintergirls (Hardcover)
I found this book to drag on a little bit and that the main character was at times very annoying. I did appreciate the wieght of the topics in this book and that the author did a pretty decent job of getting the reader to understand how devastating death, an eating disorder and self harm can be. It's mainly the lead character you may find issues (literal and otherwise ha!) with but the fact remains it's a book that at times you might have to force yourself to finish.

It's far from being a page turner.

NYX: No Way Home TPB (Graphic Novel Pb)
by Kalman Andrasofszky
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Troubled Teens, 13 Oct 2009

I don't know much about the history of NYX but this is definately worth a read. The art is decent and not overly done. The story line is in some places rushed but has the right combination of gritty and plausible. I like how the main character is troubled and not a typical "hero" and they had (well a few) references to the old X-Men. I think overall they could've delved a little further in the leads and current world state history but maybe they left it the way it was for future work (?)
