5.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 13 April 2013
This review is from: Widow Maker (Kindle Edition)
This popped up in the Amazon recommendations, and at the price and with good reviews to date I thought why not.

Whilst not an in depth look at flying and fighting the Marauder, it nevertheless is a compelling read that keeps you interested. Enough detail for those interested I the Marauder, and enough story for those just looking for a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, with a slightly weak ending, 13 April 2013
Another good book in the Elvis Cole / Joe Pike series.

Tension builds steadily throughout the book, but the final pages are then over very quickly, leaving you satisfied with the story, but a little disappointed that more was not made of it. Whilst it doesn't detract from the story, five minutes after putting the book down you suddenly think, "Hang on a minute. Was that all?" So only 4 stars, not 5.

Throughout the chapter titles give a suggestion of what is yet to happen, building the suspense as the focus flicks from character to character. There's always enough continuity to maintain your hold on the developing plot and this works well, rather than solely focusing on one character like earlier books.

All in all, I liked it a lot. But would have liked more detail in the conclusion.

3.0 out of 5 stars difficult to rate, 16 July 2006
This review is from: Syriana [DVD] [2005] [2006] (DVD)
The amazon review hits the nail on the head. It's a good film that is burdened by a multitude of storylines that develop slowly. The constant fliting from one storyline to another can confuse, and the slow pace leaves you wondering when it's all going to get moving.

For all that it's still a good film. But certainly nowhere near the best that I have watched.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Eurovision winner that didn't vanish - quite, 29 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Flying Blind (Audio CD)
An album that is difficult to classify (and even more difficult to find). Modern folk that verges on the lightest edges of rockier songs.
From the beautiful acoustics of Flying Blind, to the rockier edge of Let's make trouble there isn't bad song on the CD. Nianh sings with a wonderfully clear voice that lends itself to a relaxed listening experience. It would probably appeal most to modern country fans, or those who like the lighter side of Lene Marlin et al.
Niamh Kavanagh is an Irish singer who won the Eurovision Song Contest for Ireland in 1993. She also performed on the soundtrack for the film the Commitments.

4.0 out of 5 stars one for the traditional country fans, 29 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Blue (Audio CD)
Not my favourite album, as it is a bit too old style country for me.
Those that prefer their country with a more modern rockier edge would be better off getting one of the later albums. But for those that prefer a more traditional sound the clarity and power of her voice stands out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another top album, 29 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Lost In A Moment (Audio CD)
Nothing but 5 star reviews says it all - and they aren't wrong.
Perhaps a bit more upbeat than previous albums, but very much the same style of music. If you liked either of the previous albums you'll love this one, and if this is the first you get be prepared to want the others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catch up on sleep 1st - you won't want to put it down!, 16 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Musashi (Hardcover)
I can add little to the other reviews other than to confirm that this is an excelent book. Those with an interest in fuedal Japan will be drawn to it, whilst those who shun it because of this, it's length or price are missing a gem. Despite it's length it is too short by half. You'll find yourself immersed in the world of Musashi and staying up late to read just a little more.
The characters are brought to life and are without the idolisation that might have been the case for such an historic figure in Japanese culture. It is so much more than a martial arts inspired book that it has a much broader appeal that it will ever realise. Charting the life, fortunes and falures of Musashi and those close to him it is a love story, action thriller and inspirational text all rolled into one.
Simply put this is the one of the best books I've read and would stand head and shouders above mainstream 'bestsllers'. I would recommend it without reservation to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 24 Dec. 2005
The action photography is only the half of it. As interesting are the shots of the riders in moments of inactivity, and away from the track. Not overburdened with narrative the highs, lows and everything in between are captured, together with the stories behind them.
A must for any fan of road racing.
