2.0 out of 5 stars Trying too hard, 12 April 2012
Unfamiliar with McCarthy's other works, there was an over-riding sensation from start to finish that this writer was trying too hard. Trying too hard to be a literary leviathan, saturating the reader with detail and minutiae, so much so that it became impossible to empathise with any of the characters and indeed the storyline. The book only came into its own when McCarthy begins talking about the protagonist's WWI exploits as an aerial observer stuffed to the gunnels on cocaine. It is obvious that this is the only section of the book the author is at all empassioned by. The rest, unfortunately, is analytical and antisceptic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yamaha P95, 14 Mar 2012
Brilliant piece of kit, portable and adaptable. It sounds brilliant through a PA also. The keys are beautifully weighted, a perfect practice piano.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much fun., 13 Jan 2012
This is probably one of the best things I have ever done.
This was a joint present for my 17 yr old son and me at Christmas, and what a treat it is.
Easy to assemble, light and versatile, this is a dream of a drum kit.
We are both loving it.
Would recommend an acoustic mat beneath the kit however as the pounding does resonate!
