1.0 out of 5 stars How to smell a rat, 18 April 2013
This must be a truly inspiring book.

It's prompted a whole string of new reviewers to put fingers to keyboard for the very first time and they've all given it five stars.

It's almost unbelievable how good this must be.

Fans of `The Passage' seeking out Cronin's earlier work expecting more of the same may get a surprise with this one. `Mary & O'Neil' is a resolutely literary novel, a study of family relationships told through eight interconnected stories.

There's only so much one can say about an exercise ball. Key plus for this one is that it will support plenty of weight. I'm 190lbs and have used fairly heavy weights whilst lying/sitting on this. It hasn't burst yet! Nor has it ever felt as if it's under undue strain.

All in all, if you're after a decent exercise ball, especially one suitable for weights work, this is a good choice.
