5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and True!!, 12 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Fat, Forty and Fired (Paperback)
What a great book. I was leant this whilst on holiday in Australia with my brother. What was nice was that the author painted an honest picture of how nice Sydney is. The people are friendly and the city has everything. What's more as the story develops and he finds himself out of work and effectively the 'house husband' everything rings true to how we as men are treated and feel sometimes.

The hilarious section of him taking his child to Kiddy Gym and then going for a coffee and not knowing about the goodbye window was so well written. You actually at times feel sorry for him, but all the time laughing along. Many times i said to my wife, 'god that is so true', as the author writes about another disgreement about dressing the kids.

In all i recommend this book to anyone who is Fat, Forty and has been fired, or who just fancies a change in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for kids, 12 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Monopoly - Disney Edition (Toy)
Our children received this for christmas. On the whole and nice version on an old favourite. The children can associate with the Disney characters and the castle makes an attractive addition. But please be careful, i can imagine that after a while this will be the first thing to suffer.

The play pieces are nicely cast Disney characters. It is a good help for children when doing simple mathematical calculations dealing with money, counting and subtracting.

In all well recommended for children above 6 with supevision, due to castle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack Johnson with Tempo, 11 Aug. 2006
This review is from: See the Sun (Audio CD)
Having visited my brother in Oz, Pete Murray is big over there, so i purchased the CD. It is a very good album indeed. He is, in my view, better than JJ. I find some of Johnson's songs a little bit similar. However, Pete Murray, as the same powerful voice, with a little bit more tempo and rhythm. Definetly worth a buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Story of Courage, 14 Jan. 2006
I remember reading the story of this in the papers when it happened, so when i saw the book i had to read it.
Aron's book is a story of real courage. Many people who i leant it to said he probably had it coming, when you read the intertwining chapters of his life, but for a young person he has achieved so many challenges. For this i have respect for him, in that he had goals in his life and he set out to complete them.
I have never read a book that has physically made me close to being sick as this. The point where he finally removes the arm is so vividly and well written that you felt you were there in his place!!
My aspect on life has changed considerably since reading this book, in that if you try and imagine Aron's thoughts and feelings throughout this ordeal, then no minor problem we ever encounter is really a problem, but a minor hindrance??
Read it, you will be satisfied, and a little ill at one point!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Space Saver, 23 Sept. 2003
This is a very good USB2.0 hub, nice a slim and inobtrusive. It sits neatly behind the monitor and makes it easier to hot swap the many common USB perhipherals now used.
