2.0 out of 5 stars Sad., 25 July 2014
This review is from: SECTOR C (Kindle Edition)
This book is very well written, with two interesting main characters, and would have been really enjoyable had it been more believable. So to be fair ir would probably be a worthwhile holiday read. The basic plot was interesting, but I've only given it 2 stars because:
- A group of local farmers decide to set fire to the compound on the basis that it didn't matter if the animals escaped as all their own stock was already dead. Really? So it wouldn't matter if the escaped animals killed them or their families? Or that the escaped animals may spread the virus further?
- Before setting fire to the compound they liberally doused the whole exterior with petrol and diesel.....and nobody inside smelled this?
- The locals were advised to throw away all meat and meat products. Throw away?...and it didn't cross anyone's mind that it would be picked up and eaten by local wild life - thus spreading the virus?
One further, minor (and to be fair a bit picky) point. As soon as I read that the heroine is feisty I know that sooner or later she's going to be leaning against the nearest bloke and looking trustingly up into his eyes. Sad.

This review is from: World War Z [DVD] (DVD)
I'm not at all convinced that this DVD isn't counterfeit. The action was difficult to follow and the sound was worse. We gave up trying half an hour into the film as we just couldn't follow it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Depressing, 1 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was hoping for a fun, uplifting story about oldies. Instead I found (with a few exceptions) a group of people who were very sorry for themselves and with the hand that fate had dealt them. As a woman in her 70s I found this to be a depressing snapshot of old age.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bearable, but he's not Jack Reacher, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jack Reacher [DVD] (DVD)
I was incensed when I heard that Tom Cruise was playing Jack Reacher, but decided to give this film a chance. It's watchable, but even ignoring the Jack Reacher connection Tom is just not a toughie. He's just too feminine.

I ordered this book for my husband, as he wasn't getting as much use as he'd like from the slow cooker. He loved the breakfast recipe, but said that some of the recipes have too short a cooking time to be useful for someone who likes to prepare a meal in the morning and leave it cooking until the evening

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant starter dictionary, 18 July 2013

This dictionary doesn't contain as many words as other more expensive dictionaries, but it's brilliant for the new student. It's main advantage is the comprehensive explanations.
