A great app for the kindle fire that makes navigating a lot easier. Nice to see an app that benefits kindle users primarily! That's all.

Ok it was 77p but it was also three pages long, with nothing that isn't blindingly obvious in content. Pointless.

A great book examining the 5 stages of grief and their irrelevance to modern studies of bereavement. Konigsberg offers a fresh and highly interesting perspective on coping with grief outside of the traditional and overused framework. As somebody recently bereaved, this is one of only three books that have attempted and come close to making sense of this new world I find myself in. Highly recommended along with c s lewis and Barbara want.

This fabulous album is a slice of America that satisfies the soul. From the beautiful "Lost Avenue" through to the incredibly catchy"Don't look Back" via an excellent cover of Dylan's "I'll Remember You", this is a must-own album from a great but under applauded talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lower River, 13 July 2012
This review is from: The Lower River (Kindle Edition)
This is a wonderful novel, catapulting the reader into the stifiling humidity of the african hell a world away from the utopian memory that Hock tries to recreate. To the very end you are held captive with awe and frustration along with the central character as you long for escape, and without giving away the ending, when you do escape the pages of this gripping novel you are lost as to what to read next, knowing that few novels will compare. excellent.

This is a wonderful and almost heartbreaking tale that weaves through the protagonists blurry atonement against the backdrop of a haunted Albany and a haunted life. One of the best books ive had the fortune to read. a must buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Potter's Field, 9 May 2012
Disappointed by the last few Camilleri books, and reading of an increasingly fatigued and older Montalbano, I was pleased to find this offering a more enjoyable read. Whilst there is still the threat of retirement looming in its pages, I left The Potter's Field hoping that it wouldn't happen for a few books yet (having previously concluded that having an end in sight would be no bad thing). Camilleri has toned down somewhat the complexities of the case and we have as a result more of the wit, characters, and atmosphere that made the early books so readable. There is still a sense that the series is winding down, but this has been a theme of at least the last three books, and after this one, ...please not yet. I can't help but think that unlike Mankell who - probably for worse - continued writing after Wallander had ended, Camilleri will probably retire alongside Montalbano.

3.0 out of 5 stars Forgettable, 6 May 2012
An original story and a fairly easy read, although perhaps a bit much for its intended audience in terms of appropriate content; i found this book enjoyable whilst reading it but im afraid it didnt linger in my mind. Certainly not enough to read the whole trilogy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Am I missing something?, 2 April 2012
This review is from: Cube [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
I can't help but think that this film must be an example of those 'so bad it's good' films that seem to gain cult status solely on their sheer nerve to even get made. I just don't get it, this was an awful film, with a thin (to say the least) plot, and acting that made the worst amateur dramatics performance you could imagine seem plausible. Interaction between the characters was at best comic, and at some points it wasn't clear if this was all a very bad joke. I can understand the idea of gaining a cult following for something that is perhaps a little offbeat (Twin Peaks or Northern Exposure) or even completely off-spec (Rocky Horror Show) but to gain a cult status for having not once shred of merit seems, in truth, pointless. I would avoid this film at all costs, my copy went straight into the bin. Terrible.
