All Balls and Glitter: My Life

Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great look behing the 'mean face', 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being portrayed as the 'mean one' on Strictly may have gotten him the publics attention but this book shows that he is a lovely man, has worked very hard to get to where he is and continues to work hard! Some great tales from his childhood to dancing days - fun in drag in abundance too! Made me laugh out loud (on a airplane too! Got some weird looks I can tell you), as I giggled at the tale of his birthday in drag with a friend and an incident with false nails ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great look into such an interesting personality, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bruno My Story (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this book - some of the stories from his childhood are really sweet, such as stealing shoes on the beach as a toddler and how he was lucky to get a 'big break'. You realise how hard he has had to work to get where he is and that Bruno isn't just the 'madman who leaps around behind the desk' on Strictly. His telling of the death of his parents & grandparents broke my heart and I just wanted to give him a hug at that stage!

Very well composed soundtrack that allows you to close your eyes and it will take you to Middle Earth. Really liked listening to the cast/dwarves singing too!

Would recommend going up a size (I wear a 5 in heels, but need a six in boots and in these ones). Can walk all day in the heel height.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a bestseller!?!? HOW?!?, 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book to be so ridiculous that I struggled to finish it - even while speed reading it! I generally dislike books written as a 'POV' story but the main character, Ana, comes across originally as a weak Madonna-esque person who then transforms from this innocent virgin into a Submissive sex fiend who experiences many 'earth-shattering moments' seemingly at the drop of a hat and the male character, Christian must take Viagra on the sly!

If you were to take the sex scenes out of the book it would read like a teenage girl's diary...lots of 'oh jeez' etc for a character who boasts of her GPA then thinks like this and can't see that she is being manipulated by this 'stalker fiend'?!

One can also nearly take the opinion that Ana is practically schizophrenic - between her 'Inner Goddess' encouraging her to do ALL of the sex/S&M things with Mr. Grey; her subconscious who disapproves of this and warns her to not fall for him; and Ana herself.

I cannot for the life of me, understand how this book is on the Bestseller list in any country, nevermind several countries and that film producers are fighting over the rights. Why!??!?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the film!, 27 May 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This is a great slashing game. You end up leveling Wolverine, so you learn new moves and can switch in 'uppers' into your mutant genome.

Plot loosely follows the film, with flashbacks filling in the rest of the story. You'll have great fun hacking away at all of the enemies and figuring your way around obstacles.

Really really enjoyed this game :)
