4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value for Money, 6 July 2004
My 1st digital camera and i'm really impressed. The quality and speed is great. I found all the options overwhelming but that is purely because it is filled with features.
The panoramic mode is fantastic and the video is good quality too.
The flash which is normally poor on compacts works well up to about 20 feet and the night mode means it's rarely needed anyway.
ONE THING! The internal memory is v.small so buy a SD card at the same time.
It also eat batteries like a bugger (although im told they all do) so get some rechargables.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than previous books, 12 Jan. 2004
This review is from: The Last Detective (Paperback)
This is the 3rd Elvis Cole novel i've read and by far the best. The other two were lightweight 'pulp' detective fiction, but in this book the characters and Crais writing have really taken off. The action is lightning paced and described from all angles, a literary trick i've seen before but rarely working as it does here. The humour is played down as are the twists and turns and distractions of earlier books for the brake neck pacing of this life or death story. It is more violent than previous outings but this is balanced with real humanity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Play this Loud, 21 Feb. 2003
If you like The Strokes,The Hives, The White Stripes or any of the new rock n' roll bands you'll love this compilation of Johnny Thunders. The ex-New York Dolls guitarist here branches out (usually with his 'Heartbreakers' in close pursuit) and produces some of the rawest, most chaotic rock music ever recorded. Topped off by Thunders soulful melancolic lyrics which strain to desperation on the acoustic 'You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory' - "It doesn't pay to try; all the smart kids know why."
Theres also a fantastic cover of 'Great Big Kiss' as used in a recent chewing gum advert. If your getting into all the new rock bands don't forget this is where those guys get their inspiration from. Enjoy.
