101 Things to Do Before You Die
101 Things to Do Before You Die
by Richard Horne
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky. Good gift idea, 8 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought my book after seeing my partner's. It's turned into a fun hobby to do together... and the book is motivation to do exciting things. for instance, actually book that skydive or go wine tasting.
I've since spoken about it to a couple of friends... it's turned into a fun motivator.

Some of the things are easily achievable, like get a piercing... some not so much, get arrested... but most of the things are a reachable goal for most people. A quirky gift or a good thing to have yourself.

Each double page spread covers the task on the left hand page with a fun requirement and then the right hand page has questions etc to capture the memory. Well arranged and put together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as expected, 4 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Harley Davidson Key Rack - HD1S
Arrived very quickly and in very good condition.
Wasn't to the level of detail I was expecting though, it is literally just a picture stuck on a piece of wood with a couple of hooks on the front.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very much worth a watch., 9 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Adam [DVD] (2009) (DVD)
Adam is a 29 year old man with Aspergers Syndrome, a high functioning form of Autism. What this means becomes clear in the film itself. The film follows a developing relationship between Adam and a new neighbour Beth through hardships of life.

Having watched several films concerning differently abled individuals or individuals with additional needs I was a little hesistant about watching this film. However it is so very much better than you can expect.

The film is an emotional and enjoyable watch throughout; however I must admit, I am perhaps more emotionally connected than most, myself closely knowing an adult with Aspergers. However this means I can also tell you, if you are not just looking for a moving film but also to be more informed about the condition, the portrayal in this film, both through the fantastic acting and the scripting, is shockingly realistic and faultess.

Hope this helps.
