First Activation: A Post Apocalyptic Thriller by Darren Wearmouth
2 of 4 people found the following review helpful
I'm probably going to be condemed for saying this but I feel I need too... Reading the reviews for this book, I am stunned by the fact that no one at all mentions how many times the f word appears.. I know that this is a scenerio where people would swear profanities but to have the f word repeated and repeated is just so monotonous & unexciting for me. In fact, this book would have been more believable if there was no swearing in it at all!

"First Activation" does have a good story line with good… Read more
The Oracle Code (Thomas Lourds, Book 4) by Charles Brokaw
3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 26 Oct 2013

For me, there was too much "theory" and not enough "action". For those who did enjoy… Read more
Sacred Ground ~ Cta
5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Music, 5 Sep 2013
This is a very good album with one exception - The artist of this album should be "California Transit Authority, Bill Champlin & Will Champlin". I guess Danny Seraphine is very good friends with Bill Champlin and that is highlighted on this album. Will Champlin has great vocals on "Sacred Ground" & it could be my favourite track, aong with "Out of Reason". However, Bill's ballad is a catchy number BUT I do think the song "Full Circle" ruins the flow of the creativity that is CTA. I admit that I do love Will's vocals on "Sacred Ground" but I wish Bill could have just kept on background vocals only and placed CTA centre stage. Of course, I had no… Read more
