A Series of Aerial Stunts
A Series of Aerial Stunts

5.0 out of 5 stars Life and love, truth and tales., 6 Aug. 2017
Reading this book was like scrambling my brains and putting them in a frying pan. Each poem twists and turns through everyday life, with love underlining each stanza and line. Inspired by the Beat generation, but bringing the style into the modern age and to a modern audience, Huggins is able to take us on a twisting journey through one chapter of his life. We meet colourful characters, lovers, and friends in this collection of dynamic and devastating poetry. The author is not afraid to display his demons or explore his emotions. Initially written to be performed, you can almost hear the rhetoric as you read through the pages. The use of structure adds to each poem, emphasizing various points and signposting crucial and climactic moments. On the one hand, this is food for thought, but, more honestly, it is one man trying to navigate through life by using the written word as his guide and outlet. For me, I relished in the raw truth, the mundane and the unbelievable, for each page brought another surprise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Vivid Female Psychological Thriller, 10 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Sharp Objects (Paperback)
Okay, so it isn't as stunning as Gone Girl BUT it is well written and the characters have depth & the plot is intriguing/constantly shifting. It feels believable and warping at the same time. Solid ending.


Memoirs Of A Geisha

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem, 10 May 2012
This review is from: Memoirs Of A Geisha (Paperback)
This book is fantastically written, well researched and thoroughly thought-provoking. The author has a strong voice using a range of metaphors and subtleties to ensure the reader is with the protagonist all the way.

Easy reading but fun and enjoyable. I liked the protagonist, the storyline and the tone. Kind of summer-style chicklit reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, fun, gory, 31 Oct. 2011
There is a lot of vampire stuff about at the moment but this is a great watch. I find myself watching episode after episode and feeling genuinely excited, scared and entertained.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gritty debut, 5 July 2011

This review is from: Magpie (Paperback)
Jill Dawson details the life and times of a newly single mother and the problems she faces. Her main character experiences a host of bad happenings without some grand happy ending. It is very realistic, but not completely depressing. It is more about the strength of human nature and survival.

2.0 out of 5 stars Written by a psycho vegan, 6 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Skinny Bitch (Paperback)
At first I found the no-nonsense attitude refreshing and felt like I was learning. The book re-confirmed some things I already knew and made me consider some new things. However, when I reached the chapter about dairy I realised the author is using the book as a vehicle to proclaim their own vegan lifestyle. Being a vegan is fine, but NOT for everyone.... I didn't appreciate it being thrust in my face.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast, but fun, 15 Jan. 2011
I've only just started using this and it is actually my first fitness DVD... I can see what people mean about it being unsuitable for beginners. However, I am keeping up with it and build up a good sweat in a short space of time. Also, if I start to feel demotivated it is already the end of the segment. This is great, because it means I feel confident that I can do it again... rather than having one intense workout and then never doing it again.

Good short stories, but so repetitive. They repeat entire sequences each episodes, which is ashame, because this was a promising gem..

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay for flipping through..., 21 Sept. 2010

Perfectly nice book. It has some interesting insights on kindness and how people should treat each other. If you want something positive, yet thought provoking, but do not have a lot of time for lengthy texts then this is for you.
