Mountains of the Moon
Mountains of the Moon
by I J Kay
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.28

5.0 out of 5 stars moonglow, 21 Jan. 2016
This review is from: Mountains of the Moon (Paperback)
An excellent novel crammed with feelings and sensations from a troubled childhood and the struggle to live in the world as a young women alone. Great evocation of childhood and beautiful memories of loving siblings overcoming the adult world of violence and neglect. I really hope this author is working on her next book.


Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
by Alice Furse
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars good things in store, 26 Dec. 2015
Furse is surely destined for big things. Her style is confident, unhurried and with the wisdom of a much older writer. She writes about the minutiae of everyday life and quiet desperation of the everyday folks. I would love to read more of her work.

3.0 out of 5 stars art house extreme, 2 Oct. 2015
This review is from: Under The Skin [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Definitely not for those who are fans of Faber's great book, this movie is an over-indulgent experiment by the director which contains a few exceptional scenes but unfortunately has many more which completely fail, in my opinion, to tell this story. Johanssen's performance is strangely mesmerising however despite the paucity of story and meaning.

Having read some of Glazer's ideas on the screenplay and the making of this movie, I think he largely fails to communicate these to his audience. So what is the point?

1.0 out of 5 stars NO!!!!, 28 Sept. 2015
This review is from: The Box [DVD] (DVD)
This movie has gathered together a number of sci-fi widgets from a whole range of other much more successful movies in order to create a sad stew of directionless drivel. The only aspect of the film which gave me pause for thought and which I still find disturbing was Diaz's face - which had a very peculiar look to it which may or may not have been part of the plot.

Come on!!!! Stop wasting our time with this crud.

4.0 out of 5 stars beats me, 28 Sept. 2015
This review is from: Shark (Hardcover)
I loved-hated this novel. It didn't really feel like I was 'reading' so much as being hypnotised by some fiendish jackanory story. Haven't a clue what it was all about but it didn't seem to make the slightest bit of difference. Was a wee bit miffed that he got the Corrie reference wrong (but maybe that was deliberate). I'll give 'Umbrella' a try now.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sturdy and very useful since the carrier can the used like a rucksack if its easier that wheeling your pet. I would have liked the wheels to be bigger and more rubbery though.

My cat loves this toy. She uses it every day to groom her face, ears and tail and sometimes enjoys just sitting under the arch itself with her paws folded under her.


Remember Me Like This
Remember Me Like This
by Bret Anthony Johnston
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars readable, 7 Sept. 2015
This review is from: Remember Me Like This (Paperback)
Although eloquently written I was nevertheless disappointed that the harrowing subject matter of this novel was somehow skilfully avoided by the author. I felt that the character of Justin was just too seemingly 'unaffected' by his experience and the book is instead filled with descriptive prose concerning the weather, the small town, the state of the back yard. The prologue and epilogue are both quite redundant. No doubt since this novel is rather a mild treatment of the topic it will make an ideal basis for movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars thongs in paradise, 30 Aug. 2015
Written in rather a hasty, slap-dash way this book nevertheless manages to grip the reader's attention and provides a shocking insight into this subject. Would be an excellent text for school kids and college students to mull over and discuss.
