The Hunt for Red October (Jack Ryan Book 3)

4.0 out of 5 stars Much more than the film, 30 Nov. 2010
Like a lot of people I came to this after seeing the film Hunt For Red October Special Edition [DVD] [1990] (a classic in its own right). The film was based on this book, however it has missed certain key portions that the book has. If you are wanting a typical Tom Clancy thriller this is among the best - don't expect groundbreaking symbolism in this book! The book actually explains technical terms and the background in far more detail than the film, and the book stands on its own in terms of a thriller in the background of a NATO-Soviet conflict in the Atlantic. Whilst the main portion of the book is concerning Jack Ryan (the hero) and the Soviet submarine captain, there are interesting portions of the book which try and look into the actions of various ships and planes which are making up this conflict. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent post-apocalyptic thriller, 28 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Metro 2033 (Kindle Edition)
This is a great post-apocalyptic novel from Dmitri Glukhovsky. I will confess I only read this after starting to play the game Metro 2033 (PC DVD) which is based on this book. It is a fairly standard post-apocalyptic novel with similar themes, although it has reflections and themes based on what happened on the Second World War from a Soviet/Russian perspective. The book follows a fairly young inexperienced traveller trying to save his "home" metro station from unidentified attackers - and allows him to experience what has become of Russian society after a nuclear attack. It is interesting as we can see his naive reactions to what has happened to the inhabitants of Moscow, which reflects some of the previous factions and history in Russian society.

It has been interesting as I have never read a modern Russian author before, although I cannot tell if anything or not has been missed in the translation. One thing that may be unfamiliar in this book is the use of Moscow Metro station names - it is easy to get confused with the names and being unfamiliar with them I have no way to tell if there was some underlying meaning to the use of the station names.

Overall this is a good science fiction novel and well worth reading, especially if you enjoyed the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars True jazz hip-hop, 1 Nov. 2010
This review is from: An Evening With (Audio CD)
This is an under-noticed classic - the whole album is filled with jazzy/hip-hop tunes. The beats and rhymes go back to late 80s/early 90s hip-hop (the "golden age") without the aggression of gangsta rap. Combined with the jazzy back beats this album is something that can be relaxed to, with my personal favourite being Autumns Evening Breeze.

Most people would not have heard of the Sound Providers as they don't seem to be pushed by a major company, but in this album they have created something that can be listened back to back. The only downside is that the CD itself is very hard to find. Fortunately you can get this on MP3 but my personal preference would be for the CD in a high end sound system to appreciate the quality in this album.

I have the CD An Evening With..., but also recommend the MP3 download An Evening With The Sound Providers


The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing book now in a portable form to re-read easily, 1 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stephen Covey's 7 habits is a life changing book and can get you to motivate yourself and change your outlook on life and other people. The book is set in a step by step basis and one of the main factors in 'using' the book is that you have to regularly go back and reflect on how you are achieving your goals. Having previously had a paper copy of the book (which I have sadly lost) this book has been handy to have. Not only is it a cheap replacement, for the price the advice is priceless. Furthermore the Kindle Whispernet system is invaluable in allowing me to read the book in one place and then start off where I left off on another device (e.g. the spare time that I have on a bus with my iPhone). I not only highly recommend this book, but also the kindle format it is in to allow people to get the best out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good basic labelmaker for organisation, 1 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good starting label maker - it is high quality, relatively cheap, simple to use, although the green/florescent plastic cover may make some people or businesses a bit wary. For personal use it is quite a hardy machine and the labels it prints are top quality. The screen itself is somewhat small, but you can use the machine to type labels over one or two lines and also include symbols. If you are starting off in organising your files or other stuff this is indispensable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality replacement power supply for low price, 1 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good quality replacement powerpack for my Sony laptop at a low price. I needed a quick replacement when my last powerpack gave up, and trying to use power supplies from other high street shops and supermarkets gave some unsatisfactory results. This one has been working for a few months without flaws, plus it is on the cheaper side of replacement power supplies that you can buy. I highly recommend this if you need a new adaptor!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic book for when you're on the move, 1 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This study guide is a good e-book for quickly refreshing your memory when you're on the go. It has some detail to it, however if you are looking for comprehensive guides then a bigger tome might be more useful. A slight downside is that some pictures are slightly smaller than they could be. However it has the fundamental information that you need for human anatomy.
