5.0 out of 5 stars Just Fabulous, 25 Mar 2005
This review is from: Lullabies To Paralyze (Audio CD)
The rush of lengthy reviews for this album are a little tiresome, as is the ridiculous snobery of the reviewer who assumes that a fellow reviewer hasn't listened to QOTSA albums before 'Songs for the Deaf'simply because he alludes to the absence of Dave Grohl- get over yourself man!! The politics aside, this album is a joy. Guitar heaven from start to finish; highlights are the lush 'I never came' which does not 'drag on' as stated by a previous reviewer, but highlights the versatility of Nick's voice, and in placing this track straight after the excellent lead single 'Little Sister' ensures maximum impact. Other high points include CD opener 'This Lullaby' and the fantastic 'Broken Box'. As a whole, the album flows beautifully, yet is more experimental than 'Rated R' and 'SFTD'. Personally speaking I would say 'Lullabies To Paralyze' is the most complete QOTSA album. Bring on Carling Leeds 2005....

4.0 out of 5 stars Meg Cabot: beyond the Princess Diaries, 28 Jan 2005
This review is from: Teen Idol (Paperback)
'Teen Idol' is a seriously cool book. I love all Meg's books but this one has become my second favourite after the phenomenal 'All American Girl'. To say this book is better than the Princess Diaries is a bold claim, but read this novel and you will see why. In Jenny Greenley Cabot has created another hit character with gennuine warmth. The relationships in 'Teen Idol' show the complexity of being a normal teen, let alone a 'teen idol'. When a real idol comes to town, Luke Striker, Jenny must make a choice between fame and real love. A must for all Meg Cabot fans. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could do better, Liz, 7 Nov 2004
This review is from: Making Mischief (Paperback)
I was really looking forward to reading this book as I am a big fan of Liz Young's previous novels. However, the book was really disappointing. Tha male lead, Guy, was totally underdeveloped and unconvincing and the protaganist's family and friends were 2 dimensional. Abby, the main character was difficult to empathise with as she came accross as a pushover and a little irritaiting. All in all, the book is readable, but the structure (consisting of various flashbacks) was disjointed and the ending was preditable and a hard slog to get there with absolutely no other male detours. Would I buy another Liz Young book? Yes, but only just.
