Life Of Pi
Life Of Pi

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't like it, never finished it, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life Of Pi (Kindle Edition)
It may have been a box office film, but I just couldn't get the book, as from the start it was all religious. I don't mind people being religious, but I felt it was being rammed down my throat and gave up. I may have been wrong not reading further, but the intial chapters of a book do count in appealing readers...

Pauline And Paulette [DVD] [2002]

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but I'm biased, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being a Flemish Belgian, I would be biased. The film is Flemish with undertitles. But having lived in the UK for over for over 35 years and know the quality of programmes and films on British TV, I feel this DVD is definitely worth a watch. The acting is great, the story is great. It's a beautiful story about two sisters who don't see eye to eye but rely on each other...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if you need a boost about your life, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was an eye-opener for me about certain issues I had in my life, and it made me think differently, outside of the box. It made me want to tackle things again. There's no have-to's or don't-do's: you make up your mind about what you want out of your life. A self-help book in some sort of way?

I am really pleased with my new laptop. I use it at home, take it with me on short stay holidays, which allows family and friends to see some of my stuff. It hasn't caused me any problems at all, so I am happy to say "Get it if you need one".

4.0 out of 5 stars What's not to like about nigel Slater?, 30 Mar 2014

This review is from: Real Fast Food (Paperback)
I've always liked Nigel Slater for his ease of putting together a meal, choosing ingredients "you just have left in the fridge or pantry" etc. I just love his suggestions, even if for health reasons I can't always go down the suggested route. However, I find it quite easy to try and adapt his recipes. They're good, home-made dishes, and not difficult to make...


Beauty and the Beast (Little Golden Books (Random House))
Beauty and the Beast (Little Golden Books (Random House))
by Teddy Slater
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 2.40

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, but perhaps not for small children and toddlers, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the book, bought for my granddaughter's 4th birthday. I like it, but am a little disappointed because I feel that the texts are too long and quite verbose for the attention of a 4 year old. I must admit that I didn't see any age group for it, but if there isn't, maybe it should state one... I'm sure my granddaughter will grasp the gist of it, especially as they have the DVD, so no big worries: it will help her vocabulary no end!


Disney Princess Sparkle Princess Belle Doll
Disney Princess Sparkle Princess Belle Doll
Price: 8.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A little girl's dream, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my granddaughter who is having her 4th birthday soon, and she wanted a princess theme. Most girls that age love Barbie-like dolls, to comb their hair and dress up. Belle is the centre of Beauty and the Beast, and as such is a favourite of my granddaughter. Personally I'm not that keen on these Barbie dolls, but I'm happy to add something to my little granddaughter's dreams. I've also bought the book "Beauty and the Beast" so she can have her story while holding and playing with Belle...


We Need To Talk About Kevin
We Need To Talk About Kevin
Price: 4.12

5.0 out of 5 stars Rivetting, harsh, and beautifully written, 30 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I put off reading this book, knowing it would be harsh and difficult. I finished reading it a few days ago, and also watched the film on BBC TV today. The film is harsh, but as half as the book. The book also is far better at explaining the history of how this happened. Unfortunately it leaves me (and I suspect other readers too) unable to quite understand the how and why, as I don't know enough about psychopathic behaviour. I found the book difficult at first, as it is written in a letter format, and you don't know "the end" until the end of the book, although you suspect something really bad has happened. I gradually got into it more and more, and found it rivetting: I had to finish it, I had to know.
Some people feel the mother wasn't able to cope, but I wonder who would in those circumstances. From my own experience as a mother I know that I would have found it extremely difficult to change the path this was taking. The father was not around enough to appreciate the situation. Kevin is very good at manipulating and setting up his parents against each other...
All in all, an extremely good but difficult read, very well written, tension held right till the end...


The Man Who Rained
The Man Who Rained
Price: 4.79

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his best!, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I somehow enjoyed the book, but it wasn't up to my expectations, after having read "The girl with the glass feet" a few years ago. In the "Girl with..." Shaw managed to keep the magical aspect subdued, although the reader knows that it is magical, and it is only at the end that you know what is really happening.
"The man who rained" makes it too obvious early on, and the story is in my opinion not as strong.
Still, it was a good read.

A very well known children's book and animated film. Children (and parents) just love it. My grandchildren loved it, and laughed when I put a "funny" voice on!
