5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting read!!, 21 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Chameleon (Kindle Edition)
I can concur with the other reviewers and state that The Chameleon is the type of book that grips you from the very first paragraph and doesn't let go. I really warmed to and rooted for the protagonist, Anna Bright as her internal monologue went through the momentous events in her life that ultimately lead to her current life threatening situation (the flitting between time periods is handled expertly). I smiled at the evocative, vivid descriptions of first love and i felt frustration as her life descended into the plight of domestic abuse. For anyone who hasn't had to endure an abusive relationship (myself included, thankfully) there is often the question "Why not just leave?", this book offers an insight into how that is easier said than done and it certainly afforded me a better understanding of this awful situation. Overall, i found The Chameleon to be a very assured & riveting book and I look forward to reading other books by DS Mitchell in the future. Highly recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jagwars rule!!, 11 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Howlin (Audio CD)
I have had this album pretty much on loop since i purchased it; Howlin is a really bright, party album and will no doubt be the soundtrack to my summer. It marries the best parts of 60's psychedelic pop music with contemporary rhythms to create a sound that would bring Bez out of retirement to shake his maracas with great fervour. The song that drew me to this album was "The Throw", which perfectly illustrates Jagwar Ma's seamless mix of the new & old...it starts out with a surf guitar riff and trippy vocals before turning into an acid style dance track; it's a brilliant track and i would love to hear it live. Having now listened to the rest of the album, i was pleased to discover that The Throw wasn't a singular highlight, the whole album is excellent. The pace does drop off on the last two tracks, but after the upbeat nature of the earlier tracks it's nice to have a couple of lovely, chilled out songs to smoothly bring the album to a close....before playing the whole thing again!
