1.0 out of 5 stars What I did, 29 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What I Did (Paperback)
I must disagree with everyone - I only managed a few pages before I got extremely irritated. Why would I want to read a book written (as if) by a six-year-old boy. A complete waste of money for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blood harvest - weak ending, 1 Aug. 2010

This review is from: Blood Harvest (Hardcover)
I have to disagree with most of the reviews on here. I found the book disjointed, the characters far-fetched, especially a 10-year-old boy who roams around a graveyard on his own at night,and the ending seemed to have been snatched out of thin air. Most disappointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Marley & Me - disappointing!, 12 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Marley & Me [DVD] (DVD)
Having enjoyed the book, I found the film version a great disappointment.

The characters were plastic, the film jumped around too much and I never got the impression that Marley was anything more than a nuisance. His lovable side was never brought out. I love dogs but the scenes of the dog slobbering over faces, swimming in the pool with the family and being fed with the same fork that Grogan was using were yucky!

Even the "death" scene at the vet's left me cold.

Not a film I'd watch a second time: once was more than enough!

1.0 out of 5 stars King of Trash!, 12 Jun. 2006
I didn't even manage an hour! What a load of old tosh. It was so bad it was funny, then it got plain boring. One of the worst films I have ever had the misfortune to waste time (and money) on!

1.0 out of 5 stars Condescending and arrogant., 9 Jan. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seldom have I read a book that irritated me so much! Arrogant, condescending and completely without humour. I suggest James Cochrane reads Bill Bryson's "Troublesome Words" to get an idea of how it should be done.
