5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant and really handy!, 18 Jun. 2013
These keys are excellent.

They seem to be very reliable data-wise and they fit handily on a key ring too.

Definately recommended as a good option in the ocean of USB key choices out there!

2.0 out of 5 stars Better Lullaby albums out there, 18 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Hushabye (Audio CD)
This is okay.. glossy and slick, and pretty in parts, but if you're thinking about getting a lullaby Cd - have to say check out the brilliant Sophie Barker / Rainbow Collections one- "Lullaby" first

That one Lullaby is a lot more beautiful and effective as a bedtime album and sends us & the little ones off to sleep nightly! It's really quite special and magical - a real classic.. unlike this one which is just, well, okay.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cosmos was better, 2 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Contact (Paperback)
I'm a huge fan of Carl Sagan, but found this particular foray into fiction the only book of his to be well, a bit boring.

Don't get me wrong, it was really good in places, but for a story it was a little over-technical (ironic from a writer who usually managed to make the most complex and technical things very easy to understand and poetic)

I saw the novel through to the end out of respect to the author (who from his other work I consider one of the greatest thinkers of our time), but have to say, read all of his other books first ('Cosmos' is the best intro to Sagan world in fact) as only a fan will have the loyalty to enjoy this one fully

Cosmos: The Story of Cosmic Evolution, Science and Civilisation
by Carl Sagan
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.09

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome., 2 Mar. 2008
Awesome. I can't think of a better way to describe this book. Carl Sagan deals with the grand cosmological issues in such an easy to read, almost romantic way. On many occasions during the reading of this book, I had to put it down to fully let the words (usually some incredible statement about life the universe and everything) sink in (usually with a 'wow!')

A fascinating and engaging read, covering an incredibly broad topic base, from evolution, to space travel, to ancient history.

Literally an incredible read. I can't wait to re-read it in fact, knowing full well I'll enjoy it even more


Telescopes
Telescopes
Price: £14.01

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem, 2 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Telescopes (Audio CD)
Telescopes is not only very beautiful sounding but it has this amazing panaramic, grand film quality to it. KK's music reminds me a little of Pink Floyd and the soundtracks of Danny Elfmann, really taking you on this weird and wonderful epic trip.

The little narrative parts are great too - a little like the fantastic books of Carl Sagan, mindblowing and inspirational.

A great album to listen to late at night and get totally lost in, especially out under the stars!

2.0 out of 5 stars good but not the best (scariest), 30 May 2007
This review is from: Scary Music (Audio CD)
pretty good halloween party CD featuring a fair few of the classic horror themes, especially great to hear pieces from Danny Elfmann and The Exorcist.

It's a good fun warm-up CD for a halloween party to create a fun horror atmosphere, but found it a little inconsistent qualitywise and the running order/choice of music was not always perfect and so didn't build an effective scary atmosphere - I find the CD 'Raw Fear' much better for actual genuinely scary creepy music which sends those shivers down your spine once the lights go down and the candles are lit in time for ghost stories, Trick Or Treat and Murder In The Dark!
