1.0 out of 5 stars Dull, 26 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I understand that this is part of a series. I didn't know that when I bought it - but there was a big catch-up at the beginning so things made sense. But this is juts a series of things that happen - no real plot and there is absolutely no attempt to create well-rounded characters. Perhaps the author didn't feel the need as they had done this in earlier books. But it just meant that the characters all blended into one and were very dull. I also didn't like the way that the grandfather won the money but it was assumed it would be spent by everyone - that just came across as selfish and greedy and then he couldn't go on the holiday anyway. I read it because I had been on a similar cruise so was interested from that point of view. But horrible characters, dull characters and a non-existent plot line. Lazy writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars But check the price!, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love love love this stuff. I used to buy it at Amazon for ease - but please note (if the price still stays at 31.99 as it is today) - it is half this price from Neals Yard. Why have they hiked the price up so much????!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars A little too pleased with itself, 9 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was just ok. A little long - and it just felt like the author was a little too pleased with the idea. I didn't find it life-changing and the fact that the author writes at the end that it is - just seems a little too precious for me. An Ok idea, worth a read - but nothing special.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not silent - but brilliant anyway, 31 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved these so much I bought two. So I do love them. But I will say that, as someone who needs it quiet at night to sleep, they are not what I would call silent. They are probably the quietest on the market. But I can hear a slight whirring at night and you can definitely hear the water bubbling away. So just a warning there.
But they have helped to create a better atmosphere in the house - my skin is not dry anymore and I don't get a blocked up nose in the evening.
They last about 4 hours and despite the instructions saying you have to buy special oil - essential oils from the health food shop or chemists work fine - or even Olbas Oil to help with breathing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you laugh and cry, 31 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Summer Heights High [DVD] (DVD)
I am a teacher so was so interested in this series. Absolutely LOVED it. Started off really disliking the character of Jonah - cos yes there ARE characters like him in real life and I have taught them!!!
But then started to warm to him and change my mind about his teachers. To the point that I was sobbing in the last show.
This is what I love about our British comedy classics - they do this so well - have you laughing and then wallop you with a really touching scene and THIS Australian series has managed to do that too.
BRILLIANT!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars That's the point..., 22 April 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just want to defend this book. The VERY reason I bought this was because it had nothing to do with Gillian McKeith. It has a much more relaxed, realistic and achievable guide to eating healthiliy. I LOVE the recipes in there. They are set out Month by Month which can make finding them a little difficult but you soon get used to it. It's SOOO interesting to read. If you enjoy eating healthily try this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest and Funny - Not Preachy, 17 Sept. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was in two minds whether to buy this but read all the good reviews and went for it. I am SO glad I did. it is brilliantly written - I read it from cover to cover and then read it again. I have changed a lot of my beauty products already. It was something she said. If you won't put chemicals In your body - why put them ON your body. Makes sense! The book doesn't make you feel as if you have to change everything. it doesn't preach - just tells it like it is. If you are in any doubt - BUY IT! It's a wonderful read and good for you too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quentin's is unputdownable!, 27 Jun. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quentins (Paperback)
Quentins is a brilliantly crafted book. I LOVE the way she switches between the main characters and the short stories.
I couldn't put this book down! It's a real summer holiday book to take you away from it all. If you've enjoyed Maeve Binchy's books before you will LOVE this one.
