5.0 out of 5 stars Being a Godkiller is never easy!, 9 Sep 2014
This is a great book which makes it a worthy successor to the first in the series Arena mode. This story is readable as a standalone but starting from Arena mode probably provides a better experience. This story follows on from the last and the repercussions of a cataclsmic set of events which have shaped the world. The main character has to deal with the consequences of fame and having killed a being worshipped as a god and being a Godkiller is never easy, let alone dealing with issues from beyond the grave of the meglomaniac from the first book. I have already said too much so I will say one thing more as I am seldom known for getting to the point. I wish I could unread this book so I could have the pleasure of reading it for the first time again, short of 2/3 of the Lord of the rings, there is not another trillogy I could say that for!

All I can add is bring on part 3!

I helped kickstarter fund this book and I was glad to. Blake Northcott is a really good author who captures well rounded people. The hero of this story is generally an ordinary guy in an extraordinary position. The setting is evocative and summons a imaginative colorful world. And the events, well there extraordinary but never beyond belife, the rules that exist in the world are maintained and consistent which is a cornerstone to a well told tale.

I suggest you read this if you like this sort of thing or think you might because with a story this well told you cannot go wrong!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stuka Pilot (Kindle Edition)
This was for me a brilliant look at the other side of the coin. The atmosphere as everything starts to fall apart is incredible. Despite the fairly unrepentant attitude towards the side for which he fought his personal decency shows thorough in the relationships that he had. His personal genius is also apparent, what he could not do with a plane was amazing.

All in an interesting book and the accounts of the time he spent with Hitler is insightful if rather rose tinted. A couragious and brave man. For anyone with an interest in Luftwaffe at the time and the experience of flying in a war this is not to be missed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough no more, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These sound ok, nothing special. They in fact respond similarly to their price, which is an issue as the Sennheiser MX170 sounds better in a similar price range. In fact they are no better then the Cressyn rubby dubbys which are worth more than the £3 they cost. Pick one of these instead!

3.0 out of 5 stars Just ok, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not too comfortable, does not sound bad but I did not find it to excel in any area. I would never recommend these, especially when the Sennheiser MX170 is so capable for a similar price. AKG can and do better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good case, 12 Dec 2013

See the reviews in the press, and tech sites. No matter which you find there is little criticism available for these cases and it is cos they are great places to put a pc. What has become clear after two quiet cases is that while there may be a slight sound dampening it is just that, slight and it is the case here (joke not intended.) While it adds no noise and I am sure works as well as a ventilated box can you are better off getting quiet components than a dampened case.

Still it is a great case which is easy to build in and recommended. The only gripe I had was that the position of the psu and the size of the case means that you want to ensure that you have long power cables for this box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Mp3 player, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
And cheap too, I have two models both work well. Sound is superb, it leaves Apple's product looking like over priced junk and is worth spending the money on basically. I cannot say enough. If you want more it is easily Rockbox-able (alternative free firmware) for any feature that you can think of which is not supported out the box. It is pretty and capable, while I do not care about the looks I do the sound. Excellent.

I found this the easiest screen protector that I have ever applied. It is not noticeable on the phone and the touch screen still works perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and very cheerful, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a knock about cheap pair of headphones these cannot be beat. While there are better sounding headphones around these are better than the bundled pair with Mp3 players and phones. I find the build quality surprisingly reasonable for the low price. All in all get a few pairs stick them around to use when you can't find your good ones or put them in your toolbox to use when doing diy, there more than cheap enough not to care what happens to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quiet efficient cooling, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am quite concerned with sound levels and this is a good way to tame lots of heat. I have one of the 65w Core i7s (4770s) and this is taming the heat with little noise - literally what more could you want from a cooler, and with no chance of a leak from a cooling system!
