It's unbelievably beautiful, I love the way he makes his characters at once stupid, beautiful, loathsome and divine. It's like reading a wonderful impressionist painting!

Good romance, I didn't figure out the ending for a while and enjoyed it while I was reading it, but a few weeks later I can't remember most of the details!

Very gently written, it's a bit slow to get going, but I love the message and the fact that there are no cartoon villains in this story. I'll be getting this in hard copy for my girls to read when they're a bit older!

1.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally abusive gas-lighting nanny-but she's magic so we love her!?, 29 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow, I had no idea the original Mary Poppins was such an awful person! Ruined the movie for me forever. Kept reading through the first book to find some sort of character progression but genuinely can't figure out what the point of her being their nanny was. The kids seemed delightful from the beginning and she was just gas-lighting them the entire way through, and so MEAN!

1.0 out of 5 stars floppy and useless, 3 Mar. 2013
never even managed to use it once, the light was floppy and the only good thing about it was the cool opening mechanism!


Gourmet Crochet: A Yummy Yarn Cookbook
Gourmet Crochet: A Yummy Yarn Cookbook
by Christen Haden
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars DC means SC?!?, 12 Nov. 2012
I got very frustrated with this book to start with, until I realised what the authors call double crochet is what i've always called single crochet - and every other book and website i've ever used calls it single crochet too! Now that's sorted i find it much better, but am a bit disappointed at how small the pieces turn out, especially when they often look almost full size in the pictures. Even so, will make an amusing couple of christmas presents

4.0 out of 5 stars ghibli strikes gold again, 28 Feb. 2006
it says a lot for an anime film if i like it so much having only ever seen the dubbed version! it usually destroys it for me, but the story and animation made up for it; oh, and the young sophie's voice sounded perfect in the english sub as well, that was great! the only reason it didnt warrant 5 stars was because of the cut off end; particularly the way the story with turnip head resolves, it's as if miyazaki got tired of the film and wanted to get it over with, which is a great shame as it didnt really even need such an ending. perhaps it'll make more sense in the original language! that's why i'm dying to get this dvd!

4.0 out of 5 stars just one thing, 30 Jan. 2006
i adore miyazaki's work, and this is no exception, it had me on the edge of my seat wondering how it was all going to get sorted out. it's much more about romance than any other miyazaki i've ever seen, and that isn't a bad thing, it works very well as another reviewer says, it doesnt get too corny. the reason it gets 4 stars is coz of the ending; not the whole ending, just one character, who seems like a completely random add-in at the end, there was no build up to him and he seems completely superfluous. and in the dubbed version he has some amazingly crap lines! i cant wait to see the subbed one to find out if this one character is better explained, coz i'd have expected better from miyazaki!
having said that not many movies can get people roaring with derisive laughter and then earn a round of applause at the cinema five minutes later! i loved it, and the mulleted dude at the end cant spoil that!

3.0 out of 5 stars florida, not australia., 14 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Flipper [DVD] [1996] (DVD)
this was worth the watch when i was 15 coz it had the grand combination of gorgeous elijah, a dolphin, and paul hogan. though i really dont know what paul hogan was doing in florida, but hey, i'm a kenyan in the uk!(yes, it was set in florida, not australia, hence only one person had an australian accent!)good acting from elijah wood, even when he had to contend with such cheese as an evil guy who wanted to feed him to the sharks. cool dolphin. nice place to live!hey, i wouldnt buy it for myself but a 12 year old daughter would probably love you for it!
