Buried Angels (Patrik Hedstrom and Erica Falck, Book 8) (Patrik Hedstrom 8)
Buried Angels (Patrik Hedstrom and Erica Falck, Book 8) (Patrik Hedstrom 8)
by Camilla Lackberg
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 14 Mar. 2016
Decided to read based on the good reviews but I was disappointed. It was too predictable and the ending was a let-down. This said it was well written and made me want to keep reading it. I liked the flash-backs to Ebba's ancestors, it was clever how it all came together, there was just not enough mystery and suspense.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointed, 17 Feb. 2014
Got this based on the consistent excellent reviews. If you're looking for a proper whodunnit detective series this is not for you. The characters are quite interesting and well-developed, but the actual plot lines aren't designed to keep you guessing. It's more about the lives of these women, more soap-like than anything else. If you are looking for something to get your teeth into, with an excellent female lead, I would recommend Blue Murder

two out of the four clips broke within one month, very disappointed. I would go for something a bit more robust next time.

3.0 out of 5 stars slightly disappointing, 26 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this based on the good reviews (the bad reviews were only for the subtitles, not the content) and there are a bit too many references to sex to make it tasteful (not for watching in the presence of your mother-in-law for example!).
I got it as there were several references to Friends, an all-time favourite, but it's not as good, you don't get involved with the characters as you do with Friends. Jeff is incredibly funny, and it's worth watching it just for him, and I'm no prude, but people generally don't talk about sex ALL the time!


House of Joy
House of Joy
by Sarah-Kate Lynch
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars House of Joy, 5 Jan. 2011
This review is from: House of Joy (Hardcover)
This book was an easy read and informative. The contrasting characters were interesting albeit with exaggerated personalities that sometimes lacked credibility. However the author's skilful use of words allowed the reader to empathise with the three sisters and to share in the various challenges associated with making champagne. Unlike the other reviewers I found the small horse an irritating distraction. The climax was unexpected and somewhat unreal but it did not adversely detract from my overall enjoyment of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars great toy, 13 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Lego City 3182: City Airport (Toy)
my son fell in love with this toy in the shop in June and had to wait until November for his birthday... he didn't forget about it. Endless hours of fun and lots of detail. Bit pricey, but a good buy.


The Pillars of the Earth [DVD] [2010]
The Pillars of the Earth [DVD] [2010]
Dvd ~ Ian McShane
Offered by HarriBella.UK.Ltd
Price: £27.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, 11 Dec. 2010
Not quite accurate to the book, but extremely well made (costumes and fighting very realistic) and excellent casting and acting (with the exception of William who should have been a lot more evil-looking; he has too much of a baby-face to be convincing as his role!). Also Jack should have been a stronger, more dynamic character.
As for being different from the book, it is obvious that there has to be some poetic license... things that work well in the book don't necessarily translate into film well. I think the script writers have done well and the changes aren't too different. Also means there is some suspense even if you know the book!

4.0 out of 5 stars good purchase, 27 Oct. 2010
Both my 4-year-old son and my 1-year-old daughter (for whom we bought the house) love this doll's house! The little one is still a bit too young, and likes to climb inside (so far it has resisted) but I think it is something that will last a long time (in that they won't grow out of it straight away like most toys). The only complaint is that it is slightly pricey, and the dolls for it seem to be a bit overpriced for what they are... if you want to play with it straight away then it costs a lot to furnish (otherwise nothing to play with).
However, it is a good investment and it is a nice toy to have in the house (instead of the usual plastic rubbish!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Oustanding as usual!, 25 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series is slightly different from the others (not as much suspense and adrenaline) but the storylines and plots are very clever and highly entertaining. The characters work very well together and there are some very amusing moments (Mickey: I don't work with anyone with 'Liability' in his name!). Definitely one to buy

2.0 out of 5 stars moderate, 24 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The Last Supper [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
I got this film as it was recommended for me and it had good reviews. From the other reviews you know what it was about, but it left us feeling very uneasy; neither a good comedy, nor a particular good thriller. They could have made a lot more with the given theme, but in the end it was a bit ridiculous.
