The Shock of the Fall
The Shock of the Fall
by Nathan Filer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilariously real and outstandingly brilliant!, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Shock of the Fall (Paperback)
Oh my gosh, I loved this book SO much. What a breath of fresh air! I literally could not put it down and finished it in 2 days. An outstandingly brilliant insight into living with schizophrenia. Both laugh out loud funny whilst simultaneously sad and heart felt, yet not sentimental or slushy in any way. The insight into mental health services was so funny and so accurate. As someone who also works in mental health I found it just hilariously real. The characters are strikingly convincing.The lead character is inspiring and incredibly likeable. Brilliantly written and realised. I can't praise this book enough. I will be recommending it to all my colleagues. What a wonderful read.

This review is from: The Others [DVD] (DVD)
Love this movie. I don't often buy DVDs but felt compelled to buy this one whilst it was so cheap. Kidman is great in it. I was never previously a fan, but she often seems to sway towards slightly weird and independent movies these days and does really well in them. The Others is gripping, creepy and most importantly has a brilliant twist. If you haven't seen it then well worth a watch


Ten Steps to Positive Living (Overcoming common problems)
Ten Steps to Positive Living (Overcoming common problems)
by Windy Dryden
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that helped me change my life, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was originally leant this book several years ago by my CBT therapist at that time. I have to say that it was a book that helped me to change my life (along with a few other things). It helped bring me through and out the other side of severe social anxiety. Very easy to read and understand, written in sufficiently layman's terms. Plenty of food for thought. I bought the book again on Amazon and leant it to someone but unfortunately never got it back! Hope it helped her as much as it helped me! Highly recommended. (Plus Windy is the coolest name!!)

Nice story, easy to read... ever so slightly predictable and ever so slightly frustrating! (but I won't give the plot away). I enjoyed it though and would recommend it.

This review is from: The Sea Change (Paperback)
Lost interest a third of the way through, which usually means its boring (or I just cant get into it). I always think if a book hasn't 'gripped' you by at least a third of the way through then give up and try something different. Maybe I will try and pick it up again one day... but then do you start from the beginning or from where you left off??

This review is from: Silver Bay (Paperback)
Another great read from Jojo Moyes. Silver Bay is heart warming, seems more modern than some of her other novels. Love it when you find a writer you really love. Can't wait for her latest one to pop through the post.

Good value, slightly cheaper than the shops although the bag isn't as sturdy. Birds love it. Seems to be equal quality to sunflower hearts bought elsewhere. No complaints from the birds anyway!

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes eating cake feel posh!, 31 July 2014

Really pretty little forks, very slim and dainty. They make eating cake feel posh! (shouldn't that always be the case?) Also very good for the money. Quality you would expect from Portmeirion.

Love this frog house. Looks really cute by the pond. Frogs aren't so sure yet. No accounting for taste!
