Cries Unheard: the Story of Mary Bell

4.0 out of 5 stars Her sad, very sad childhood and her attachment to her ..., 6 July 2016
I found myself with huge sympathy for Mary, who seemed to encounter unhelpful people at every turn. Her reluctance to admit to the crimes was, in my view, a sign of the horror she felt at what she had done which put her in denial. She was also resentful at the way her companion at the time (Norma) was somehow seen as blameless. Her sad, very sad childhood and her attachment to her mother who was hurting her in so many ways, really makes my heart go out to her living her life with this massive wound. The harm she did to others, the loss of those children and the grief of the bereaved families is heart-breaking too. There were no winners.
The author does intrude somewhat into the writing, because, one feels she is burdened with guilt at not having replied to a letter from Mary, in which she reached out to her. That is the sad thing though, about having a job as a caring person, you cannot do that role entirely as a job, same as being a priest or a mother - it's not, or it should really be, a 'job'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low carb, lovely, 26 Jun. 2016
One of the most delicious snacks, around, low sugar too. My main concern is how quickly I can eat this many.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful oil, does great things to skin, 18 Mar. 2016
Beautiful oil, does great things to skin, including curing heels that have been cracked for forty years. I have no cancers to try it on but will use it on anything that looks dubious. Also tastes lovely and is a most beautiful grass green colour, prettier than olive oil!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Christmas purchases, 30 May 2015

One of the best Christmas purchases. Hilarious.
Invest in a balloon pump unless your lungs are very powerful (also avoids sputtering of dribble as the balloon dives around)

I use the water for my iron, it saves lots of money for cartridges. Easiest way to keep the boiler clean seems to be to stop it before it boils quite dry.

2.0 out of 5 stars ... to the original music has eliminated one of the great features of MJ and that is finesse, 5 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whatever they have done to the original music has eliminated one of the great features of MJ and that is finesse.
This version is a hollow imitation, although one can still recognise him in there. I wouldn't suggest any serious MJ fans could enjoy it, although I see that many claim to be such and have given 5 stars, so while I must be wrong, I can't imagine how they don't feel the same way. Definitely advise listening before you buy, I wish I had done so, I went by the title list.

There shouldn't be an S on lives, how infuriating to have that simple grammatical mistake permanently on display!
