This is a great size for carrying a ferret on short journeys, and I think it could comfortably fit two (if they're good friends). With a blanket &/or sleep sack in there, it can be a very comfortable environment; I keep mine in the lounge when I'm not using it, and my ferret is always going in & out of it when he's playing. It's also great to take on walks, so if the ferret gets tired of walking on the lead, he can climb in and watch the world go by.

The setting is uninspiring;… Read more

I'm just starting to read a few manga, & trying to avoiding the throwaway teenage trash that pads out the manga shelves of most bookshops. I took a chance on the Demon Ororon based on the synopsis & previous Amazon reviews, but was bitterly disappointed.

This is published by Tokyopop, who churn out the kind of pap I'd been trying to avoid. Nevertheless I started reading with an open mind, but it was worse than I could have imagined, & after reading less than half of the first volume, I had to put it aside in disgust.

What could be an interesting subject is instead handled in a tedious string of cliches. A guy turns up at a girl's house & moves in permanently. He tells… Read more
