5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Minimalist Shoe, 15 Sept. 2012
Having tried a combination of barefoot style shoes I opted for these 6 months ago. They've been perfect for road running and adapting to the barefoot style of running. Extremely lightweight with no internal seams to rub your feet you hardly notice that they are there. Used to great effect on the Hard as Snails 10k this year - a cross country hill and trail race as conditions were dry. BUT they aren't suited to trail running when conditions are wet as there's really no grip ( they are road shoes after all).

If buying them, do be sure to realise that you'll need to completely reevaluate and indeed change your running style and expect tight calves as you adapt your style. However the benefits for me have been immense - a remedy to ongoing knee and Achilles problems, an easier and more natural running style and as a results more enjoyment and many more miles run.

Lost Lake: Stories
Lost Lake: Stories
by Mark Slouka
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars hauntingly beautiful, 10 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Lost Lake: Stories (Hardcover)
I originally wrote a review of this some two years ago, which somehow seemed to go astray.
At the time I was deeply moved by these short stories. As a new father the narrative held particular relevance at that stage of my life, as the distant voices recollect family stories and experiences from the Lost Lake area where they spent their childhood. Stories of unspoken family secrets, desires and innocence combined with the joy of being a child and having time to just mess about, all tinged with the regret of time passing.
These stories are still vivid two years later, and without sinking into sentimentality, for me they are all about the importance of experience of family ties and of treasuring both while you can.
One of my favourite books ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars you won't read a better novel this year, 13 July 2000
This review is from: The Book Of Revelation (Paperback)
For one of those books that (to borrow a cliche) you really will not be able to put down this is a must. Written in a calm yet totally unnerving style, it will creep into your consciousness and leave you both gasping for more and contemplating the possibilities. Get it soon.
