3.0 out of 5 stars Is that it?, 28 April 2015
This review is from: Gravity [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
I was sucked in by all the hype. The film is a disappointment as a result of all the fuss made over it. It wasn't bad, just perfectly average. It gets a bit boring as it is obvious what will happen and the route to the end is fairly straightforward from the start. Nothing special.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as tough as G-Shock would like you to think., 1 Mar. 2015

Not as robust as it is made out to be. The light broke very quickly and the strap pin snapped shortly after. It couldn't be fixed so it is now held together by superglue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Limited and poorly filmed., 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are only 3 workouts on this DVD! The workouts themselves are reasonable but you get bored with the lack of variety. Plus the camera spends a lot of time focusing on the woman doing the beginners exercise. This means that you can't see the advanced one until halfway through in many cases! This is disruptive and frustrating. I am sure there are better exercise DVDs available.


Orange Is the New Black: My Time in a Women's Prison
Orange Is the New Black: My Time in a Women's Prison
by Piper Kerman
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, boring, boring - and self-centred, 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolute drivel from start to finish. The most boring, repetitive and disappointing book I have read in a long time. I had not seen the series so thought the book would be a good start. The author is extremely self-centred, narrow minded and self-pitying. I could find nothing to make me warm to her. She fails to understand the impact of her crimes and simply comes across as a spoilt brat who thinks life should be made easier for her by others. Her account of life in prison couldn't be duller. I kept thinking that something interesting would happen or she would report the mundane in a different fashion. It never happens.

Excellence in Action: A Portrait of the Guards

3.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity., 1 Mar. 2015
Conceptually, this book seems like a great idea. However, it is let down by the execution. The format and lay out is bizarre and would have benefitted from serious editing. The history of the regiments is compressed into a poorly laid out timeline which doesn't explain all the antecedent titles fully. This error is then compounded by the use of interchangeable titles throughout. Reading a book while uncertain of the background is frustrating. The book then jumps from individual regimental detail to random historical events and then into saccharine representations of life in the Household Division. There is a lack of balance, context or subtlety. Read this book and you get the feeling that nothing ever bad happens as long as the Guards as present. With better editing and more balanced authorship, this book could much better.


Dead Men Risen: The Welsh Guards and the Defining Story of Britain's War in Afghanistan
Dead Men Risen: The Welsh Guards and the Defining Story of Britain's War in Afghanistan
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book. This is full of great detail, 7 Jan. 2015
Fantastic book. This is full of great detail, fast-paced story telling and plenty of action. There is sufficient background to situate the Afghan campaign novice but it doesn't get weighed down by detail. The issue I take with the book is that the author clearly revels in his insider status. Consequently, the book essentially boils down to "Welsh Guards: good, almost everyone els: bad". He is not exactly objective and his prejudice and favouritism is clear throughout. If you can get over this, the other issue is the strange decision to include redacted sentences. Why not just rewrite the paragraph to explain the issue within the bounds of possibility rather than just leave weird chunks blacked out? This tends to reinforce the author's entrenched position as a Welsh Guards insider. Finally, some detail is left out, which could have been better explained. Why have certain people been attached to the battlegroup - where did they come from? What happened to Support Company, particularly the officer commanding? Why was the battlegoup split up the way it was? Why are some people singled out for repeated and vitriolic criticism but not afforded a balanced view or the right to reply appropriately? There are more gaps but this does not detract from an outstanding book. A real, modern day, page turner.
