Star People by Paul Burston
Star People by Paul Burston
I thought this book was ok, I read it all and wanted to know what happened at the end, but it wasn't brilliant. I was actually quite dissapointed, because I got it because I like 'Lovers and Losers' by Burston.
I didn't really think this book had much of a plot and nothing really happened in the first 100 pages either. Like others have said this is more like an essay on the clichés of Hollywood and it is true. Not only that, a lot of the text seems to be simply copied and pasted further on in the book. For example, Matt Walsh being a bad actor, then he is an ok actor but he may play himself, then more discussion and background knowledge about his acting abilities. There are many… Read more
Dance Training for Gymnasts by Rae Pica
4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, 22 July 2012
This is a good book. It has a lot of information that is quite useful.
The images aren't very good. For example, when talking about 2nd position of the arms in ballet it says 'the hand is also slighly curved, with the parm facing the front of the body' and the image shows the hand facing the floor. More like modern dance. It also talked about turnout, and turnout should be ideally 90 degrees on each leg, however, the image shows 45 degrees on each leg with lines on the floor which make it seem right. These are minor points, but as most people look at the images more than the text it should be better.
Three Classic Children's Stories: Little Red Ridin&hellip by James Donnelly
4.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book, 22 July 2012
I loved this book. I got it primarily for the illustrations, which are amazing. The are nicely drawn and have that old fairy tale feel. The font is also a similar style to the illustrations which makes it easy to get absorbed in the stories.
The stories themselves are good. They are interesting enough to read multiple times and are different enough from others renditions. They also aim to appeal to the adult audience by using more humorous language. My only 2 gripes where the moral of Little Red Riding Hood was destoyed by the fact that they found treasure which made them rich. The whole story didn't seem to matter because 'they were rich'. The other was in Jack the Giant-Killer. It… Read more
