5.0 out of 5 stars fun easy or even more complicated.......you choose, 17 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carcassonne Big Box (Toy)
I first played this game on a visit to my step-son who now lives away. He loves board games and this has quickly become a top game for his family. I can see why
at an easy level it is fun to learn, but not too complicated. strategies are easy to understand at any level.
With the big box. once you have mastered the basic game you are free to add on any combination of add ons
I has since we bought it become a hit with my own children (all adults). already it has appeared on their Christmas lists.
the variations make it a never ending variation of town building. with two or more the fun is equal
What a great find
A must for board game players (families) that like to switch of the TV at least occasionally.
suitable for any age above 8ish.

5.0 out of 5 stars History and Fantasy, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating story. detailing a fictional commandant's family in Hitler's war overseeing the expansion of a Death Camp. The story is naively told through the eyes of a ten year old. The leader is "the Fury" and the farm/camp is "Out With".
the view of the camp holds no clues to it's purpose until little by little clues are dispatched. As it dawns on the mother what her husband is in control of, emotions become confused between horror and loyalty.
All the time the boy has befriended a boy in the camp through the perimeter fencing. the two boys strikingly similar (except in their religion) grow closer, until the commandant's son one day enters the camp, and is rounded up for the "showers". The son is never seen again.
A book like this raises many morel questions that you are allowed to explore undirected. Reading the book allows more scope on the story than watching the film version that directs you though the emotional turmoil of the family members.
Fictional, but oh so close to reality.
A top story for many ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Erotica not rubbish, 22 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All too often Erotica can fall to the levels lower than good literature. The subject does not have to result in badly written story lines with poor language and grammar. this book lifts above some other erotica books written for thrill only. although not the most in depth storyline it stays readable and offers at least a few simple twists and turns.
There has been recently much attention to another set of Erotica books, This may not have gained the same attention but is just as good in plot and narrative, and maybe just a little bit more believable.
The wonderful thing about reading books like this on a Kindle is that the subject of the book is now anonymous. I will think that more Erotica will now be read. and this is a good a start in the genre as any

1.0 out of 5 stars The reply to Atheists, 22 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a step by step reply to the Skeptic's Bible. Although the original has a few argumentative flaws. this is designed as a scientific reply to some of the arguments raised against the Bible. The reply is gravely floured but non-the less of interest to gain some understanding into the mind of at least one believer. The believer in this case is dismissing science when it doesn't back up their claims and uses very dubious science when it is useful to do so.
the book is not a light hearted read as was the original. more of a drudge through claims that you may want to end up screaming at the book.
It is though very good at allowing a peek into the Religious apologist's mindset.
The morel of the book? it is not profitable to argue with people on belief. after all any kind of magic will suffice as the answer.

5.0 out of 5 stars how to spend many hours engrossed, 10 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
books like this have fascinated me since my childhood, and this new incarnation of compiling facts is still doing the trick. written in a personal and friendly way, many of the facts are linked into groupings of similar ideas.
If you want to use it to find specific things out you have the wrong book. if you are happy to be astounded with the world of facts this is the book for you

4.0 out of 5 stars modern pulp fiction, 27 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
an engaging yarn in the best American Pulp style. the story line chugs along with great details and off the cuff one-liners. a good dose of humour helps the flow. not the most carefully written plot but engaging neither the less. a fun and light read suitable for all ages (well maybe not too young) and genders.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating read, 28 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The subject of the past reflected in the present is an enduring theme to tackle. and this book does it very well.
the narrative that matches the images is always interesting and thought provoking.
the storylines look at both the past human interactions and the present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four ways to look at humans, 6 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A masterpiece examining humans from every perspective. Swift writing so far back had a great handle on the customs and ways of human kind. his different worlds allow him to explore customs and writes and how we often see the world only from our own perspective and imagine all other views to be wrong. his next travels allow Swift to look at the failings of human kind. how we can debase ourselves without knowing what 'humanity' means.
a riveting read, still relevant today.
