A Big Little Life by Dean Koontz
A Big Little Life by Dean Koontz

I knew before I even started reading this that this book would have me in tears by the end of it. Dean Koontz writes with such passion, humour and emotion, especially when writing about his late dog, Trixie, that I knew it would be a heartbreaking read. And I wasn't wrong. Starting with a brief biography of Dean, his wife and their living arrangements, and then in to the time when they adopted Trixie and how their lives changed for the better afterwards, this is as funny, enchanting and tear-jerking as anything you could read. Not only was I in tears at the point where I KNEW I would be in tears, there were at least 3 other places as well. But it's not soppy, sentimental hogwash; it's… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Torchwood yet, 11 July 2009
The previous series' of Torchwood were quite hit-and-miss, with some excellent episodes and some that just weren't that great (much like Doctor Who, in my opinion), so I wasn't sure what this five-part series was going to be like.

Can't wait to get the blu-ray and… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful album, 13 Jan 2008
I bought this album on the strength of Peter Cincotti's excellent single, Goodbye Philadelphia. This idea has backfired on many on many occassions, with the single that I like being the only good song on the album.

Not so in this case. The whole album is superb, with stand out tracks being the title track, East of Angel Town, Goodbye Philadelphia, Cinderella Beautiful and December Boys.

Some reviewers have complained because it's not "jazz" enough - listening to Cincotti's earlier albums, I'm glad: he's an excellent jazz pianist and vocalist, but every track was a standard, with nothing much to stand him out from the others. With most, if not all, of the tracks written… Read more
