1.0 out of 5 stars Incredible - in a bad way, 27 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't quite know why I bothered finishing it. A naive story with nothing but a frantic pace to its credit. We don't have to give credence to the fantasy elements but those in human scope also lack anything like a note of truth; there's no logic to hang onto to allow the fantasy elements to be believed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, stable, ugly, 16 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The picture is entirely accurate but the angel is a bit flattering; these are ugly shoes! But they are exceptionally comfortable, appear quite well made and have a surprisingly stable sole given the profusion of lumps and bumps.

This review is from: Okami (Wii) (Video Game)
Quirky game play, a bit buggy in places and rather narrow story corridor but just HUGE!

Very enjoyable, traditional space romp with exceptional pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely take on a genre, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The vampire thing seems almost endless but this is a very, very well considered and written take on that all-too-common theme. There is a genuine plan towing the story along and loveable (if not quite believable) characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another one, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are good! Well edited, carefully written crime novels around a credible female character who exhibits the sort of strengths and weaknesses that make her feel very real. For the very largest part I find the tumble of the main-character's behaviour so real that it could almost have taken shape as any outcome. But Ruth does, at critical moments, make decisions that are strong and in control.

2.0 out of 5 stars Silly, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dreadful, silly idea that feels like a rehash of other things. Editing is sloppy and it has the grip of a slimy paw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good solid device, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Workaday flash drive; solid, robust, simple, gimmick-free. This is the sort of drive you want in your pocket or on your key-chain.

48 Hours: A City of London Thriller
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Well constructed thriller, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Careful plot and (though barely credible) consistent events. Just a pity about the rather infantile love-interest element which could have been completely left-out without taking anything away at all.


Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary Book 1)
Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary Book 1)
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely fluff, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's not deep, it's not clever but it's congruent and readable and well edited and gave me several happy hours of distraction.
