The Quiet War (Gollancz)
The Quiet War (Gollancz)
by Paul McAuley
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars It wasn't us with lots of new stuff, it was a new society that had developed over centuries, 12 May 2015
Well deserving of an award. It took me straight back to the merging of detective and science fiction that Asimov developed. Admittedly slow paced but clever and consistent, the characters came to life. Not only that, but a great depiction of how we might be so different in 300 years. It wasn't us with lots of new stuff, it was a new society that had developed over centuries with ideas of right and wrong that were both alien but all too human.

This book is certainly not for those who demand shoot em up action adventure, possibly a good 1st modern sci fi book for a book club?

The Children Act
The Children Act
by Ian McEwan
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.99

3.0 out of 5 stars nobody else noticed the one liner, 9 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Children Act (Hardcover)
Great and focused on the title until about 1/2 way in, then it moves away from the point of the title into what I would call chick lit.
Read as part of a book club choice, nobody else noticed the one liner that led the judge to make her particular decision apparently (but not) ignoring the "The Children Act"

Draper Expert 71244 71-Piece Metric/AF Vortex and 1/4-Inch and 3/8-Inch Square Drive Gear-Ratchet Combined Socket Set
Price: £64.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Innovative Socket set, gets to the parts others cannot reach, 20 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great product and very useful with the innovative way the sockets go into the handle. The benefit being a very low profile socket / ratchet setup and of course great for working with nuts on long bolts - spring compressors for example.

One niggle is the challenge of getting the socket off the ratchet, some force and hitting often required. Otherwise a 5 star.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Film ruined by poor quality transfer, 20 Mar. 2015
The film is and remains brilliant, the version / transfer to blu-ray is shameful. The brightness comes and goes, I thought my Blu ray player was faulty it was so bad. It was grainy, the subtitles popping up was a surprise, others have mentioned this. Is the special edition that much better?

This review is from: Ender's Game [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
A brilliant film. Great CGI, good acting and stayed true to the book. I hope they will do a follow on with "speaker for the dead"

2.0 out of 5 stars An alternative to Man of Steel, 14 April 2014
If You liked "Man of Steel" you will like this. Fight scenes that go on and on and on, inconsistencies with orcs or goblins being killed by the score but there are always more! Invincible Dwarves, molten gold that just isn't.

Think of Game of Thrones, a brilliant transfer to screen by staying true to the book. Think of the Hobbit, the book that is, a brilliant book that would make a great film, cast aside and, well you get this! Almost three hours of my life I will never get back.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best films ever, 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In the days before CGI they had to do the crowd scenes for real, and boy were these big scenes! A spectacular epic that has yet to be matched.
