5.0 out of 5 stars It's a spoonful of honesty, 6 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on my kindle last week and OK so it's not funny like i thought it would be but i did end up reading the whole book. I actually got into it as i was fascinated by the life he led as i was a sufferer of OCD myself and it's always reassuring and comforting to read something that you can relate to. Jon's OCD tendencies are i would even say a little out of control and throughout the book i was waiting for something that would read 'right i cant be bothered with all this s***' but it never came and i actually felt a little sad at the end also because of the whole Gemma situation (if you have read the other reviews you may have some inkling of who Gemma is but i wont spoil that for you.

Some of his thoughts and actions make perfect sense, i cant think of anyone who wouldn't get annoyed at some of the twats on public transport in London and the text message he sent to the guy on his Quiet carriage was possibly the best part of the book and made me laugh as it felt like it was getting back everyone I've ever 'hated' on the trains. Saying that i would never wish horrible thoughts on anyone even comically and some of his thoughts left me a bit freaked out.

I agree that if you want this book to make you laugh, it's probably not for you but if you want something more, something that challenges your own views (whether or not they are right is up to you) than you may want to give it a try. Ironically after reading the book, it makes me want to be kinder to people on the trains as i get annoyed by people easily in rush hour and end up in a bad mood all day but i guess if i start off not thinking about it and get on with my own stuff i wont acknowledge everyone else, maybe that's what Jon needs to do and he'll find the love he is looking for, i do think he of all people deserves it! So i gave it 5 stars because of the honesty and the outcome for me, it's not easy putting yourself out there and he has so i guess that's his way of starting a change.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written!!!, 14 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Very Valentine (Paperback)
When you read books like Very Valentine, you compare them to other light hearted romance books and you can tell this is no ordinary book. I found the authors descriptons like little visions of art, I almost forgot about the story and got lost in the words, Adriana is very talented and the way she writes is beautiful. I can relate to the main character and as I love italy so much I was engrossed in the book. Would recommend to anyone with a passion for creativity!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Voice for Vegans!!!, 15 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book last week and have not been able to put it down, aside from the facts about how being a vegan can make you healthier, it has delicious recipes that i really want to try out. The book explains everything you need to know to follow a vegan diet and for those who already are vegans like myself its got additional information on how better to look after the planet. Alicia is both amazing and inspirational, would recommend the book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent text for management studies!!!, 12 Feb 2010

This review is from: Management (Paperback)
An excellent textbook for Management students, very user freindly, easy to read, it has really good examples of real life case studies all interesting ones that students would want to read about. something that i like about this text that no other book I have read does is at the end of every chapter, all the important points have been summarised which is great for exam revision although you should read the whole chapter and not just the summary but overall would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!, 5 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my Fave novels of the Jane Austen collection, The characters stay with you long after you have finished reading the book. Anne Elliot now a stronger woman than she was eight years ago, where she gave up her love Captain Wentworth for the sake of her family now she gets a second chance. I loved her Character, she resembles any woman who has fallen in love and shows how it still lingers with you. Captain Wentworth is dashing and loves Anne dearly, He almost makes you wish he was not fictional!. This maybe shows Jane Austens Love for Thomas Lefroy and how she has incorparated her feelings into the novel

This is a great book for any level of management accounting. I am a complete beginner and I found it easy to understand, the great thing is you can do the chapter exercises and check the fully explained answers at the back of the book. complete simple genius!
