5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Forget The East, 25 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: White Lies (MP3 Download)
Dream State are a Female fronted hard rock group/post hardcore band from Wales. As always groups like this seem to get compared with Paramore (more lately Pvris) but this band are so much heavier and the screaming/rasping vocals of lead singer CJ really shine and make the listener sit up and just go ‘wow’. I don’t think it will be too long before people are using Dream State as the band to be compared to! This is the first single from the band since their 5-track release Consequences, which is well worth checking out and they just seem to get better and better with each new song that is released. Hopefully more songs will soon follow with a UK Tour (and remember England has an EAST to it)

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping Psychological Thriller, 25 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sleep Tight (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this book and found it a very easy read. This was my first visit into the world of Rachel Abbot and I will certainly consider buying another of her novels. Initially I was a little bit taken aback as the story is written in the third person in parts but also in the first person from the point of two main characters. This was the first time I have come across style in a book but once I got used to the changes I actually thought it was a very good idea. The book is a psychological thriller with twists and turns throughout and the odd red herring thrown in for good measure. Characters were well written and reading other reviews this is the third outing for DCI Douglas and there was enough in the novel to make the reader want to find out more about them in future stories.

Put twelve blocks out initially and all disappeared but it did not solve the problem. Put a further twelve blocks out and about half were eaten and a dead rodent found in the yard. The problem appears to have been fixed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than a pint of Campbell's Own, 12 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has been a while in the making but at long last it was time to venture back to the Four Vales for the final instalment of this trilogy and immediately the reader is taken on a fast-paced action ride as the cliff-hangers at the end of the last novel are played out in Havensdale and Highwater.

Once again Anthony Lavisher has produced a novel of real quality written at an excellent pace with the characters really coming to life from the pages and transporting the reader to believe that they are witnessing the events that unfold before their very eyes. The action is spread across the many areas of the Four Vales but the author achieves this well as the reader is not left hanging too long from the ‘what happens next’ moments at the end of chapters. At times, I was wondering how the story was going to pan out and what the true identity of certain characters were but again the author does not disappoint with all loose threads from the previous two novels being dealt with in a believable manner. After building up a good collection of characters in the first two novels I was pleased that the author resisted any temptation to introduce even more characters in this final part of the trilogy as the reader could have become overwhelmed but having said that, nobody from the previous adventures was forgotten, with everyone playing their part – even Flotsam the Donkey is not overlooked! Lies, deceit and betrayal – who will survive the final showdowns across the Four Vales?

Well I am off to raise a glass to Anthony and enjoy a well-deserved pint of Campbell’s Own followed by a couple of glasses of Burning Leaf and await the next novel from a truly great author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Making Your Mind Up, 12 April 2016
This review is from: Just 14 (Kindle Edition)
What a farfetched story, it’s not Roy of the Rovers – in the real world Ipswich would have walked the league, won the cup and their manager was so good he would have gone on to take England to Euro 96 glory!! First off it’s important to note that this story is ‘written by’ a fourteen-year-old boy rather than an adult reminiscing about their childhood. It can therefore sometimes come across as a bit of an Adrian Mole diary – not that this is a bad thing but should be noted. Just 14 is the story of Jonathan Stadler and how he followed Aston Villa through their successful 1980/81 season, but it is not just about the football and is a great read to see how Jonathan deals with friends, bullies, school, death and of course girls! The story reads like a diary and starts from August 1980 to the season conclusion in May 1981 and doesn't just follow Villa but also the other good Midlands sides (so Birmingham City are excluded) as they take the roller-coaster ride of the season. Jonathan get to visit Villa Park on several occasions but also has to rely on his lucky radio for most of the matches. There are also some very good memories of the year included – were there really that many famous people shot in one year :). Really enjoyed this book and just hope that the author considers a follow up to let us readers know how Jonathan got on in his first full season as a season ticket holder and followed Aston Villa to European glory (as well as how that love life evolved)!!


The Simpsons: Tapped Out
The Simpsons: Tapped Out
Price: £0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like living in Springfield, 26 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Simpsons: Tapped Out (App)
Springfield has been blown up and it is up to you to recreate the town to your own design. Still had to put Flanders house next to the Simpsons - it just didn't seem right anywhere else. As you progress through the game more characters and buildings are unlocked and there is even a Krustyland to create. The game starts off a little slowly as you try and build cash up but stick with it as it is well worth it - you can also find yourself a little short of space on occasions as there are so many buildings to unlock. I have been playing the game for free now for two months and if there is one downside to the game it is that the in game purchases are quite expensive and so there is no temptation to make a purchase to get a character - game developers take note! There are also special missions to undertake like Christmas/Halloween and at the moment it is Super Heroes. Also like that you have a range of actions to select for each character ranging from 1 minute to over 24 Hours so you don't have to keep logging into the game all the time to set the characters new tasks to undertake.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can you survive the survivors, 26 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Survivors: The Quest® (App)
You start the game by crashing on an island and take control of three survivors. There are various tasks to undertake and are completed by collecting items around the space you are allocated. Here lies a major problem I found with the game as some of the items you need are nearly impossible to discover without spending crystals. The game can be a little slow at times but overall this is not too bad unless you like to whizz through a game. Now on level two and have not found myself needing to make any in game purchases yet to be able to proceed but I am running short of those crystals! Overall not a bad game at all and will continue to play

This review is from: 2048 Number Puzzle game (App)
Another one of those games where you look at the concept and think it will be very easy to achieve the goal. An hour later and you are sitting there getting very frustrated as you fail over and over again. A very addictive game and will certainly pass away a few hours of the evening.

BRITA Marella Water Filter Jug, 2.4 L - Lavender

5.0 out of 5 stars Water more could you ask for!, 14 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleasing product to look at, the different colours just adds something extra than the plain white. The addition of the spout in the lid is a very good idea as this makes filling the jug a lot easier. Cartridge fits snugly into its compartment and the water filters through at a good rate. Very reasonable price for the product as well.
