Blind Faith
Blind Faith
by Ben Elton
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his best but worth a look, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blind Faith (Hardcover)
An Interesting and thought provoking satire. Not as enjoyable as some of his other books, but an interesting read all the same.


The First Casualty
The First Casualty
by Ben Elton
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably Ben Eltons Best Novel, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The First Casualty (Hardcover)
The first book by Ben Elton that I read, and probably my favourite one. Having just read it for the second time, am I alone in thinking that there should be a sequel, as I really wanted to know what happened to the character after the events related in the book. Why has it not been filmed
it would be the kind of book that would make a cracking BBC Sunday night TV series, or has it been fined and I have just missed it ?

This review is from: Past Mortem (Hardcover)
A good thriller, slightly predictable in places, but an entertaining read. although I am not the greatest fan of Mr.Elton as a stand-up comedian,
I do enjoy his writing both on the page and on the stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars An underrated triumph, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: From Here To Eternity [DVD] (DVD)
It was worth the wait, the delivery process left a lot to be desired. Virtually all of the performances are pitch perfect. Having seen this at the "live" cinema screening I knew what to expect, and this is a great reminder of the experience and gives me a chance to appreciate the extra details that I may have misused on my first viewing.
Its a shame that more of the live screen performances are not released to buy on DvD or Blu-ray. For example I would be first in the queue to buy a
copy of MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG that was shown in cinemas just over a year ago, a great underrated show, and that was a truly stunning production.


Pippin (New Broadway Cast Recording)
Pippin (New Broadway Cast Recording)
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars LIKE A VISIT FROM AN OLD FRIEND, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loving the Original, I was concerned that they might have played with the score too much. but I shouldn't have worried, This
new recording feels as fresh as the original did when it was new. Some of the vocals seem stronger than the original, especially
Pippin & Catherine. I did miss Ben Vereen a little bit, but its probably just a case of what you are used to. The updated orchestrations and extended versions of some of the songs are also a bonus. All in all its like a visit from an old friend, who's had a bit of a makeover, but is still the same at heart.

1.0 out of 5 stars Candy Crush Con, 2 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Candy Crush Saga (App)
What Rubbish ! So many people have raved about this, and it has obviously become Dangerously Addictive, but why, you just
get into a game, if you have difficulty with a particular level you either have to Pay to continue of wait an unacceptable time to
continue. This is a pure rip-off and I can see how parents with younger children will inevitably suffer if they have to pay money
for this con, to appease their children.
I deleted this from my Kindle and Cloud within 48 hours of downloading and wish I had not wasted as much time on it as I did.


The Movie Quiz Game- Free: Guess the Film Poster
The Movie Quiz Game- Free: Guess the Film Poster
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun Game, 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was a challenging game that made you think, parts were difficult as it is based on American
Movie Posters, and if you were not familiar with their versions, some were quite difficult. A few
were possibly too obscure, even with the clues, but it was an entertaining game all the same.

Like visiting an old and treasured friend.
