5.0 out of 5 stars A great album, if you liked early nineties rock, 16 Aug 2014

This review is from: Hail To The King (Audio CD)
A great album, if you liked early nineties rock: some of it sounds so like Meallica's black album, you'll think it's them, and there's some Megadeth-a-like in there too. I couldn't stop playing it for the first couple of weeks. Recording quality is great too, unlike Metallica's most recent offerings, which i have only listened to once because of the woeful sound.

3.0 out of 5 stars Other than that it's a good, informative book, 16 Aug 2014

I found the continuous message that people have no choice a bit tiring; it's true that overprocessed high fat, high sugar food is easier and cheaper than the healthier alternatives, and that we're often conned by the global food firms, but (as an overweight middle-aged bloke myself), it's not true that we don't have a choice: it's just *easier* to eat crap- and I'll do exactly that far too often. Other than that it's a good, informative book.

Great book, starts feeling just like a parody of the business conference world and the soulless, corporate blandness of chain hotels, turns into a Matrix-like other world of sci-fi. I found it a very engaging read.

Fantastic book. The intro's a bit dry, but the sections on each pier are great, informative and nicely illustrated with good photos.

Great book, with a good few laughs, and some tension too. The characters are believable, and entertaining. The only criticism I'd say is that the very end feels a bit rushed, but I enjoyed the book a great deal.

Bought for my wife to replace a Nokia 302. The phone is great value, performs very well, and has good battery life. My only criticism would be no micro-SD slot.

A good sequel to Gods of Gotham, this kept my attention well, and you get a real feel for 19th century New York.

Up and working in seconds with Torque Pro and my 2006 Leon, logging live data with no trouble. Can't go wrong at the price.

Got this on a promotion for the low, low price of nothing, but it's still an absolute bargain at the asking price. It's a great book, anyone liking Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams should find plenty to like here. My only complaint is that I finished it far too quickly...

This review is from: WTF? (Kindle Edition)
If you've read the author's other books, you'll find some stuff very familiar, but that's no problem. I found it entertaining and funny, and let's face it, it's not a lot of money.
