3.0 out of 5 stars Confused and Conflicted, 10 Oct. 2016
Confusing and conflicted are two of things that you learn about Lita from this book. The writing is straightforward and not especially well done. But that doesn't matter because you do get the feeling that she is writing it as she tells it. Confusing because the timelines don't seem to match up all the time and there are segments that seem to contradict each other at various points in the book in both timing and content. Conflicted because she obviously wants to succeed but when things don't work out the way she wants them too it is nearly always someone else's fault and that other person is nearly always a man but at the same time wants everyone to like her and respect her just because she is a woman.
I'm disappointed in that the book chooses to focus on her sleeping with everyone, taking drugs by the bucket washed down with copious amounts of alcohol rather than her music and guitars. She constantly goes on about the music and the guitars but never provides the amount of depth and information that she does about her sleeping arrangements.
And then there is the latter part of her life that doesn't really get the treatment her early career does despite the impact she claims it had on her. Again we get her side of the story but this doesn't match some of the information that is out there in Google land. Nor do some of the images from those years match the descriptions in the book.
I've loved her music for years. I'm not sure that this book does anything to change my appreciation of her music but it does create a different image of the rockstar.

A little disappointed I have to admit. The album contains some very good covers and then again it contains some okay covers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal At It's Best, 6 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Redeemer of Souls (Audio CD)
Metal at it's best.
We were promised an album of classic Priest and this delivers in bucket loads. Rob screams and sings at his best since Painkiller. The twin guitar attack of Tipton & Faulkner is possibly the best that Priest have ever had and that's no disrespect to Downing but Faulkner is sublime. Travis and Hill deliver the heavy thumping bass and percussion that drives the album.
I've been playing it almost non-stop since release and its not diminishing in it's brilliance yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good fun, 6 Aug. 2014

Great fun and a relatively easy game to play. Controls are easy to master and the weapon upgrades make it all the more fun. Neat little story line thrown in.
Not for the kids though.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little tight, 6 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bit tight around the joints of the toes otherwise very comfortable and I suspect that they just need to be worn more. Roll on the winter when I can wear them all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the Job for Day Trips, 6 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MFH Molle Shoulder Bag (Sports)
Took this with me to the States and found it was just what I needed. Plenty of secure storage for phone, wallet & passport rather than carrying them in my pockets. More than enough room for small items of shopping (t shirts, books, and that sort of thing). raer pocket good for a couple of bottle of water.
Glad I bought it and look forward to using it more.

Game controls feel a lot more clumsy than the original game and it is difficult to control the characters. Not as good as the original.

Great value, good quality and a much better option than buying some of the bigger clothing stores own brands.
