5.0 out of 5 stars ***Warning*** Game So Addictive It Could Result In Divorce!!!, 13 Aug 2014
This game should have a public health warning on it. It is very addictive and often very frustrating. The graphics are really good but at times the worms do seem to invade the background a bit. However, that would be the only grumble from me. The grumble from my wife is that when that goes on, nothing gets done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought Again & Again, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first glance, when I first bought this book, I thought, "blinding, that's a big book". As I read the book, it became more and more captivating. It provided an insight into both the private and public life. You get a fully rounded picture of the life of Oliver Cromwell and his family. If you would like a brief overview of Cromwell, or just a passing interest, then this is not the book for you. If you like history, or if you are on a history or politics course then this is the book for you. The book is easy to read and is well written. I have had to repurchase this book three times for one reason or another. Most of my friends said that they felt compelled to read it to the end. I enjoyed it a lot. You will too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! That was very, very good!!!, 15 Mar 2014
This review is from: Lone Survivor [DVD] (DVD)
I have just watched this and I have to say that this is one of the most moving films I have watched for a long time. Because of it being based on a true story, it made it even more moving. I have a special forces family background and have seen action and this is the best I have seen so far for realism. If you want to see what our forces face in Afghanistan on a daily basis, get this video.

It is heart wrenching, especially at the end. Even I felt a lump in my throat.

If you want fiction, go get Rambo III. You want reality, get this DVD. You wont regret it. Well worth the money. Just a pity that the UK does not make some of their Afghan missions into films. The acting was spot on and the costumes were brilliant. Miss this and miss out!!
