1.0 out of 5 stars That's it., 9 Sep 2013
Perhaps I read too many of the books (actually all of them) but it was pretty clear from the beginning who the murderer is. The writing style is getting worse and again when reading of Simon's parents I got so angry that I couldn't concentrate on the rest of the book. His parents died in a car crash for heaven's sake. Yet in the last and in this book they are running around like Lazarus only that nobody notices the wonder!

And maybe, just maybe it is a bad thing having read all the books because the gaps in the character works are so visible it hurts my eyes and especially my intellect. The books have become more sloppy with every new story, the language is flat and the sentences… Read more
Agatha Raisin: As The Pig Turns by M.C. Beaton
2.0 out of 5 stars It is a bit sad..., 9 Sep 2013

Farscape: Complete Season 4 (Box Set) [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Ben Browder
5.0 out of 5 stars love LOVE L O V E, 9 Feb 2010
I just adore this series. And it is a real pity that it never was translated into German. But never mind.

The box is sturdy and the DVDs well protected. I somewhere read of someone complaining that the DVDs are so tightly fastened that they nearly break when trying to take them out. I just want to hint to that person that every DVD box has the same system. You have to press the brackets in the middle first to loosen the disk... It is a user and not a producer's fault.

The quality is great and I had hours of joy watching it. I am not that keen on the extras that is why I haven't given them any attention yet.
