Original Basket Case Headband Hoop Game
Original Basket Case Headband Hoop Game
Price: £6.36

3.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy, 1 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A reasonably fun game after a few drinks but is a not as structurally sound as one would hope.


The Tube Riders - Part One : London (The Tube Riders Trilogy)
The Tube Riders - Part One : London (The Tube Riders Trilogy)

4.0 out of 5 stars Riding not jumping, 1 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first volume of Tube Riders is a dystopian thriller with enough added depth to take it above the average pot boiler. Its primary characters are a group of barely adults who ride on the side of moving trains to gain some joy in a bleak existence. Escaping one danger they run into another and try and escape. The only real fault with the book is that it doesn't have the length to truly do the characters and their world full justice. Hopefully that is what book two will do.

Edushape 18cm See Me Sensory Ball (Colours Vary)
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Coud be cheaper., 31 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fun product for a young kid textured to make it an easy thing to hold for small hands. It does though seem expensive for what it in the end a ball.


The Empire's Corps
The Empire's Corps
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A good but not hard read., 31 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Empire's Corps is a nicely performed science fiction romp which could do with some copy editing for typos and repetitive text in the same or adjourning paragraphs. It lacks the depth in both character and motivation to raise it from a 'good versus evil' pot boiler but is a fun if not challenging read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, very poorly executed., 26 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Under the over reliance on the spell check ('Sidney' instead of 'Sydney', or 'baron' instead of 'barren'), the clunky prose, the wooden characters, the laboured way build up to certain events like deaths, and crevasse sized plot holes there is a good novel just waiting to get out.


Strange Air (a bone-chilling Victorian railway adventure)
Strange Air (a bone-chilling Victorian railway adventure)
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An inventive ghost story, 8 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Strange Air consists of the converging stories of Victorian engineer Thomas Rammell who plans to develop his pneumatic railway plus a sacked tube driver who is pulled back in time by a train carriage full of rather motive skeletons.

Inspired by a local urban legend the tale is enjoyable if a little silly at the end and inspires further investigation.


With Spring Comes The Fall (Living With the Dead Book 1)
With Spring Comes The Fall (Living With the Dead Book 1)
Price: £2.39

4.0 out of 5 stars In Kentucky, 3 Aug. 2013
Written in blog format Living with the Dead is the story of how a couple, members of their families, friends, and other survivors cope with a zombie apocalypse. The blogger's sometimes annoying flights of fancy, occasional repetitiveness, and passing self importance coupled with the typos, and the messy grammar effectively create the impression that you are reading the real blog of an average person coping with extreme circumstances. The lack of third party comments on the posts was a shame but in general this is a good original take on the genre.


An Ecology of Mind
An Ecology of Mind
Price: £3.90

3.0 out of 5 stars Bits, 3 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An Ecology of Mind is a good core story with two mediocre secondary plot lines that do not mesh well into a whole. The lecture sections whilst mildly interesting add little to the plot, and the computer analyst in trouble material feels tacked on to provide a link between parts of the main story. The punctuation is ghastly enough to annoy in places.


Mars Rising
Mars Rising

3.0 out of 5 stars Rome, but not as we know it, 3 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mars Rising (Kindle Edition)
Mars Rising is an effective reworking of the rise of Caesar and his eventual murder in a far future setting with enough originality to stop the well known plot line becoming too tedious. Rather good even though you know what's going to happen.


Mankind's Worst Fear
Mankind's Worst Fear
Price: £2.59

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that fearful, 4 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Aliens, time travel, submarines, and red necks mixed together in a generally pleasing if occasionally confused science fiction romp that mostly holds the reader's interest though could do with a rewrite of the scenes on the submarine which are a little clunky.
