I alternate between Davina - Power of 3 and her Super Body DVD and this is by far the better/tougher one. It has 2 main work outs - one for toning and one for cardio, each with its own warm up and cool down sections. However, there are 4 additional sections which focus on upper body, legs and abs which effectively make for 6 separate work outs so you don't get bored. I do 2 of her dvd work outs a week plus 1 extra exercise session (eg. badminton, swimming cycling). To be honest, I'm not very good at watching what I eat - I adore food, but these dvds have helped me get into relatively good shape. I was 10st 11 just after Christmas, I'm now down to 10st 3 which is good considering I wasn't… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Good teen read!, 18 Jan 2013
Told from the perspectives of Jonathan and Ros, this is a story of an obsessive internet friendship and a missing girl, Jonathan's girlfriend, Freya. One of the biggest plus points of the book for me is that the characters are made very real - even the ones who do not play much of a part. This is a talent indeed from the author, and goes a long way in making the story really come alive for the reader. The story is fast paced and enjoyable, although somewhat predictable from the second half, but then I think this view can be accounted for in part by the fact that in my late twenties I am somewhat older than the intended readership! Recommended read for 11 - 16-year-olds.
The Light Years: Cazalet Chronicles Book 1 by Elizabeth Jane Howard
7 of 9 people found the following review helpful
Fairly enjoyable read which totally immerses the reader in the lives of the well-to-do Cazalet family just before the second world war. Good as far as family sagas go with some well developed characters, however I prefer novels to have more of a plot so this is not really my kind of book. It is well written, but has a few errors in grammar and accuracy which, although minor, I found really jarring.

Summary: If you like books which totally immerse you into the lives and characters of one family this is for you. If, like me, you prefer plot, suspense and passion, then I suggest you look elsewhere
