1.0 out of 5 stars One Star, 18 Jan. 2016
Poor quality, awful wine. Better off with supermarket's own cheap brand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely love this album, 14 Dec. 2010
This review is from: My Mother's Children (Audio CD)
I like the other review of this CD... I would just like to say that this is great, love it to bits. Very good to knit to. Also listen to this when I am trying to sleep in a noisy room as it is very peaceful.

Looking foward to her next album.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 20 April 2010
These are too thin and the pattern is not as shown on the picture, on the side of the leg is a line due to a mis-match of the pattern in the print, makes them look pretty naff. These are very overpriced for the quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Masks....a great book, 21 Aug. 2004
Despite this book's so-so reviews I must say that this was a great read! Yet another Star Trek book where the crew are placed on a strange planet, in a strange environment, with strange inhabitants, with strange cultures, and without the ability to contact the Enterprise.... This is certainly a great story!
As a reader we can spot a baddie from the beginning... Fenton Lewis takes an away team to the planet Lorca with the intention of establishing diplomatic relations. Soon as the team arrive they realise their communicators are not compatible with the planet's environment, indeed, no technology is. They soon observe the inhabitants old-age traditions of combat between rulers for power, and are forced to cooperate with their culture. The baddie... Lewis has more selfish plans for himself once on the planet and quickly disappears.
This was a good book, the characters were faithfully shaped in a somewhat different scene, indeed, this story is exciting and easy to read.


The Peacekeepers (Star Trek: the Next Generation)
The Peacekeepers (Star Trek: the Next Generation)
by Gene DeWeese
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars oh no.....how will they get out of this one?, 14 Aug. 2004
This was a good read. A bit political but nevertheless I managed it. The characters are in good shape plus those that the crew encounter. This book certainly gives you that gut feeling that all is bad and "how are they gonna get out of this one?" ideas. Not exactly on the edge of your seat, but an exciting read.
A derelict vessel is found that does not resemble any known craft. Whilst exploring the ship Geordi and Data are suddenly transported from the ship to a destination completely unknown to the rest of the Enterprise.
They find themselves in a similar vessel light years away from their friends and placed right in the centre of a political struggle between the planet's overpowering 'guardians' and it's inhabitants. Geordi and Data have to do some quick thinking to explain their sudden appearance while trying to settle a life time feud between two brothers before a war breaks out between the two parties.
A good read, but this one is more a guy's book.


Encounter at Farpoint (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
Encounter at Farpoint (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
by David Gerrold
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars ....The first time Picard saw the Enterprise.., 25 Sept. 2003
If you're planning on reading the whole series as this is a must have! The first ever episode in book form. "The first time Captain Picard saw the Enterprise..." Great! Our author here does a good job at introducing our characters to us and to each other for the first time.
The Enterprise is on its way to Farpoint Station, a mysterious haven bang in the middle of a rough world to investigate how they managed to build a functional space trade station in a matter of months. On their way however they encounter a strange obnoxious alien on its way, Q! Yey, how exciting: Picard and the new crew of the Enterprise are charged for all the crimes of humanity....a dangerous and savage race. But will they prove him wrong? Oohh.. I brought this for 20p, can't go wrong


Metamorphosis (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
Metamorphosis (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
by Jean Lorrah
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars ....After reading this for the 4th time...., 10 Sept. 2003
Ok.. someone had to do it, and what better way to do it via some supernatural ‘godly’ power: Data becomes a human! Now that sounds really exciting.. and it is. This story is quite adventurous as Data takes on a quest of destiny and on completing it: is granted his fondest wish. After a while however he realises that to get what you wish for isn’t a bed of roses after all: loosing android skill and becoming just another human leaves him questioning his value to star fleet… as well as becoming overwhelmed by new emotions such as guilt, pain and longing. Jean Lorah: quite a sexy writer does a good job here in describing Data’s transition.. just how many women could she possibly fit in there?? Well.. it is a giant novel after all….
Yes! A must have for Data fans, especially if you are a younger reader, try reading this after Survivors, which carries along some of Lorahs creations such as Daryl Adin, Tasha Yar’s love of her life, and Pris Shenkly… a luscious blonde, wink wink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another review.. surely it can't be that good..., 3 Sept. 2003
I�m sorry, I know that this book has been reviewed already�but this really is a very good book. Peter David, very good writer, as soon as it starts to get slow he quickly changes the pace, and throws you into the middle of the story, then the end, then the beginning�. it gives you such a different view of how a star trek story should go.
You really end up loving Riker a bit more after this book, understand so much more of him, and how much of him he is because of Deanna (�?) Yes, a beautiful book, would greatly advise getting it, but don�t read it when you have a lot to work to do, it won�t get done.
Oh.. and I cried, lots.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poor cat, 3 Sept. 2003
An excellent Tasha book, (I think we really needed one as she wasn’t around for long) as this book really helps you to understand her life before star fleet. In the book she is quickly swept off from the enterprise to some planet to clear up a whole no-win diplomatic issue… with Data, of course, it’s a Jean Lorah book.
Good writer, entertaining, and always quite feminine in her need to tease us with sexy scenes that make you feel quite naughty wanting to know more. (Gossip). It’s a good book for Data fans as well, as he becomes aware of feelings, as such, of jealousy, revenge… and love, ooh yes it sounds very juicy doesn’t it? Oh.. and I cried.
This book is great in the continuum of the books… try reading Metamorphosis after this, same author, and carries a few characters on with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make sure you read this!, 3 Sept. 2003
Yes, yes, very good book, I think I've just read it for the 3rd or 4th time... so damn good. Good book for Crusher this one: she has a lot to do, and also for Picard, of course. Carmen Carter really has done a great job here, with cliffhangers that just make you need to read the next chapter, or say " well I never". Great. She has brought in interesting characters and a new alien species, which together make this book a very good read.
