5.0 out of 5 stars the best thing to come out of the Hollywood Hills, 2 April 2003
I first read this book a decade ago when my quasi-obsession with Jim Morisson burned at its brightest. Danny Sugarman was a hyperactive teenager when first he encountered the God-like creature that was Jim Morisson. Jims influence on all spheres of Dannys life, even after his tragic death, is evident throughout this amazing autobiography. Superbly written and deeply emotional, this book has everything; sex, drugs, rock'n'roll, drugs, betrayal, drugs, abuse, drugs, love, loathing and a happy ending. Did i mention drugs? They're all here with the most technicolour vivid descriptions of their uses and abuses. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantasy in its purest form, 1 April 2003
this isn't just another fantasy book. this story is all about fantasising- creating a dream world and stepping inside. if you are new to the fantasy genre, than the neverending story is an ideal place to start. forget the film version, it can't compare to the story, emotion and imagination lovingly enclosed within these pages. buy it in hard back and save it for your children and grandchildren. both young and old will be equally enthralled by Bastian Balthazar Bux as he discovers himself to be a unique and valuable person. journey with him through fantasia and his imagination to meet faitytale creatures and see wonders unfold.

5.0 out of 5 stars still strong, 20 Mar. 2003
This review is from: The Last Precinct (Paperback)
i've just finished reading all the scarpetta novels and loved every single book. the last precinct is undoubtably the best one of all. forensic science and profiling still features strongly and is as gripping as ever. whats new in this book is the paranoia and raw emotion seething throughout which adds more conflict to the story. any hint of a formula which may have been evident in the earlier novels has disappeared and you truly can't know the ending until you reach the last page.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10th kingdom restored my faith in fantasy, 28 Mar. 2001
i was bored and borrowed 10th kingdom from a friend. i really wasn't expecting to be thrown into such an amazing fantasy. i had been finding it difficult to find any new fantasy capable of tickling my imagination at the time but 10th kingdom more than did that! i sat up all night watching it and next morning bought my own copy and the book. it has all the classic ingredients of a good fantasy; princes and trolls, villians and heros, journeys and vilagers, magic and adventure, intrigue and betrayal, romance and comedy yet it is amazingly fresh in it's approach. love those trolls. love that wolf.
