2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty poor all in all, 18 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty poor all in all. Over-written, slow paced and too far from the usual tone of Star Wars novels for it to feel part of the canon. If it were a separate SF novel it would have held more interest.

Amazing sound but the physical design is awkwardly over-large and painful on the ears.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Unique World...Deftly Handled...Superb Debut Effort, 23 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Electric Souk (Paperback)
A superb debut novel from an author who clearly has a lot of tale-telling to brings us over the coming years.

The characterisation is strong and well drawn, never feeling over-done or forced. The location feels both unique and familiar. McGinty's deft writing brings the Middle Eastern world to life without coming across as simplistic or 'western'.

Tension builds throughout until the author brings the world of her characters into conflict with the Arab Spring. At which point there is a palpable sense of dread and fear. THis is handled superbly well by McGinty.

It is fantastic how the author has used her own experiences of living and working in this world to build this semi-autobiographical tale of manners and mystery. I can't wait to read her next novel!

UPDATE - -thanks to the amazing guys in the band, a replacement CD just arrived via Amazon and it is most definitely SIGNED. So we can now ignore the original 1 star rating, and put this back to where it should have been all along...5 stars for one of the albums of the year, huzzah!

Beautiful to look at but the case will not grip the ipad and so it slips out constantly. Shame as the design is stunning. Returned our for a refund.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic...Except for the spine!, 12 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Classic Transformers action, can't complain about that...although the inclusion of the spin off Headmasters mini-series would have been nice.

WARNING - my copy had an error on the spine - where previous volumes have the TF logo transparent on a black background, this volume the transparency has been left off and you get an ugly white background box under the logo (see photo). This doesn't affect anything by my collector's sensibilities and makes the collection look less than lovely on the shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing...fallen in love with this terrific device, 18 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suffer from terrible neck pain and related headaches and have spent a small fortune on osteo appointments and treatments. Decided to try this neck massager on the advice of my wonderful osteo, and I am overjoyed with it. It is the first massage machine I've had which actually focuses on the neck region, rather than the shoulders or upper back. It feels a little odd, placing your arms through the two 'sleeves' but this is a genius idea as it allows you to vary the strength of the massage and exactly where on the neck it is working. The heat option takes about 10 mins to come up to full heat but it is very nice. The system runs for 15 mins and then automatically switches off. You can reverse the massage action, which is a most wonderful feeling. I really cannot recommend this enough. Simple to use, and does exactly what it says it does. I've staved off early onset headaches, and cut back on osteo appointments. My partner also finds the device a marvel. Our device came with a UK manual and UK plug, so you don't need to buy a european adaptor.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Weeping Angels Story That Will Make You Weep, 25 Jun. 2011
I'm not sure it is fair of Aaron Murphy to leave a negative review of this book based on their opinion of the TV show. What did they think of the book itself? Was it well written and paced? Did the characters work, and did they relate well to their TV versions? Was the plot ingenious? How did it compare to other DW book authors and storylines? If you have an issue with the TV show why not go post a comment about it on one of the many DVD/BD product pages? Can you say why you think the books are boring? All opinions are equally valid and I value reading both good and bad to help me judge a product before purchasing it...Aaron's would be insightful I am sure if it were more specific to this book.

For my two pennies worth...I enjoyed this adventure. I am not a fan of the Weeping Angels, I find them a half-thought-through monster with far too many inconsistencies for my liking. But in this book, oddities of Dr Who lore to one side, Johnny Morris manages to do something unusual and different with them, weaving a funny, thought-provoking, romantic, tragic plot and placing the monsters in a new role. Unlike many recent DW books, this is not another chase story, but something more contemplative, more human. Johnny has crafted an altogether more adult adventure here, one that makes you think about your own relationships and loved ones.

As with the latest series, it is nice to see Rory growing as a character, with both the slapstick and heroic elements of his personality being given decent airtime. In fact, Rory fans get more Rory than ever before in this adventure, with The Doctor relying on him in the way he has only relied on Amy in the past. Rory has truly ascended to full companion status.

Fans of Croydon will be pleased to see the much set-upon town getting a starring role. And South London's Camberwell undergoes a stunning transformation!

While there still some minor inconsistencies that the dedicated Who fan will pick up on regarding the Angels (why do the Time Editors from Father's Day not turn up to stop all this time-travel malarky, eh?), this is no fault of the author, more a result of the Angles erratic development, from one-shot baddie to multi-series big-bad. Put such quibbles to one side, and just enjoy what is a beautifully written, poignant and oft-times funny New Who adventure.
