5.0 out of 5 stars keep the kids quiet, 23 Aug. 2004
great for keeping the kids quiet during the holidays. all they need is a dice, pencil and paper and they will be out of your hair all day caught up in a fantasy realm where they can get all the entertainment a computer game or movie can give at no real expense to you. god for encouraging your children old or young to read more.

3.0 out of 5 stars fluffed up historical masterpiece, 23 Aug. 2004
fabulously done voiced over by american gentleman and on my assessment aimed purely at the american market. not helpful if you require this for study purposes but amusing all the same if you wish to see and hear a completely bias review of elizabeth whom is portrayed as a hard put upon women who rose above her peers to rule with an iron fist. mabye thatcher saw this before her rise to power.

5.0 out of 5 stars A DESPERATE JOURNEY TO SURVIVE, 21 May 2004
this is an absolutely amazing tale of a young family in the scottish highlands forced off their land during the highland clearances and the deperate journey they undergo to make a new life for themselves.
first is the struggle to make ends meet in glasgow where a proud father is forced to depend on his children to bring home the money by working long and tiring hours in the cotton mills before begining a long trip to the new colonies in canada.
the new life in canada promises much but they find themselves having to fight for the land once they get there before finally finding peace and happiness in the new land.
this is a read for all ages and i would recommend it for all to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars HAKI - A MAGICAL TALE, 14 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Haki the Shetland Pony (Paperback)
Haki is a fantastic tale. you dont need to be a child to read this as i first read it 20yrs ago and finding it again discovered it had lost none of its magic.
a lonely boy Adam dreams of a new life away from cutting the peats on the island and gets the chance when his pony Haki is bought by a circus and he taken on to care and help train it.
this book takes us on a journey following a gentle and loving partnership between boy and his pony and the trials which lie ahead of them to remain together.
it will take you through all stages of emotions.

5.0 out of 5 stars magic inspired by the isles, 10 Oct. 2003
what can i say. GMB is a fantastic writer, poet, dramatist and in the pages of this book you really do get to know the real man behind the magical writings he has produced over the years. ill health in childhood is perhaps the reason GMB was able to share his delightful imaginative work with us as prolonged perionds in isolation left him time to day dream and create his wonderful characters and tales. we learn of his time away from orkney where he was able to study at college, and spend time amongst some of the countries great scholars and thinkers of the time. it is such a shame that GMB has past away but we can be thankful he has left us so much to remember him by. this book is a must for any avid reader.

from the very start of this book you know you are on to something special, because it is set in the highlands of scotland which are very mysterious. kelsie mcblair is an average young woman finding herself thrust into a world thought long gone. stepping through a stone circle on the misty mountainside she comes out the other end only to find herself caught up in world full of witchcraft, darkpowers and earth scientists (driuds). in a world held in the grasp of terror only she, kelsie mcblair can free this petrified world from the mighty powers of darkness itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars surviving against all odds, 18 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Midnights Sun (Paperback)
this is possibly the best book i have ever read. right from the start you are gripped by the lives of these wolfs. young athaba is a young cub whom we follow throughout his life and his struggles within the pack and outwith it when he is forced into an alliance with a human trapper to survive. it shows a wonderful relationship between man and wolf clearly putting us at the bottom of the ladder. it is wonderfully written, very decriptive and full of emotion. the drama is endless and by the end you like me will wonder just how such a wonderful beast like the wolf became so persecuted. fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars sheep, 12 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Sheep (Paperback)
a fantastic debut novel from one simon maginn, taking you on an unsettling trip into the minds of the sad and somewhat disturbing young family trying to make a clean and fresh start after personal tragedy. a very descriptive piece and full of imagery, simon maginn portrays clearly just how fragile the human mind can be. very good read.
