5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly normal pop star!, 16 Feb 2013
Written with wit and in her trademark self deprecating style, this memoir is a delious nostalgia trip. It's made me go back to my old EBTG albums and enjoy those pithy lyrics and her wonderful voice again. I used to spend ages defending their music against people who wrote it off as "easy listening". Turns out the band themselves had to do the same thing. Honest, warm and funny!

This review is from: Dixit Board Game (Toy)
I bought this for my family having read a positive review in The Guardian before Christmas. It turned out to be the "hit" present of the year. The game itself is remarkably simple and relies on an element of lateral thinking and creativity on the part of the "story teller", having to describe a picture so that some (and here's the clever bit!) but not all, players will guess the correct image. At first it seems quite an odd premise, but soon becomes tremendous fun and rather addictive. The cards themselves are delightful and the whole package both sturdy but quite unique. This game has proved a hit at dinner parties and can be played by older children and adults together. Very original - it is amazing how you can get a very different game out of the same images! I can certainly see why this game won awards.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some fascinating insights, 9 Jan 2013
There are so many books about Hitler's Germany and his rise to power. The focus for the book is slightly different with each chapter looking at a specific aspect of his administration. I found the chapter about his overblown vision for Berlin particularly interesting, especially having watched Matt Frei's excellent documentary on the capital. It is however quite a slim volume and a very quick read.
