3.0 out of 5 stars Inspired start but not sustained, 30 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Faithful Couple (Paperback)
For the first few chapters, I couldn't put the book down. The depiction of the growing relationship between the two main characters was deftly written, with engaging detail and a page-turning atmosphere of foreboding. After the Yosemite incident, however, the writing seemed to change. The rest of the story was, for me, a drawn-out anti-climax; the lively, perceptive observations turned into indigestible, dense over-writing. I kept reading despite my increasing disappointment, but by the end I found myself skimming and detached from the characters. Such a shame - if only the editor had encouraged the author to tone down the over-egged descriptions and add a bit more tension to the plot, this could have been a truly great novel! Nonetheless, I plan to seek out other novels by this author because I was sufficiently impressed by the opening chapters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, solid read, 19 Jan. 2009
For any comic book fans who are mostly interested in the Original Trilogy of Star Wars, the first of the Star Wars: Rebellion series is highly recommended. To start with, the plot focuses on a new storyline although major characters from the films like Luke, Leia and Han Solo are all prominent. A new character, Deena Shan, is introduced, who, along with her drunken flirtations towards Luke, adds a fresh aspect to the atmosphere of the Original Trilogy, making the graphic novel a mix of all the best bits of the OT and some more modern themes the OT didn't explore. This is mostly shown by two characters - Luke's childhood friend who turned to the Empire and confronts Luke as an adult, in turmoil due to his loyalty to the Empire as well as his friendship to Luke, and a Rebel engineer, who is tortured by the Empire and becomes a sleeper agent who returns to the Rebels who are oblivious to the fact he has been brainwashed. These two characters bring things into the plot which make you more invested into the characters but also add a darker theme to the era which the films (in my opinion) were lacking in. It also shows the fact that the Rebels being the "good" side is more ambiguous than we thought, because the conflict is not so black-and-white, and the Empire is not neccessarily "evil" - most notably when Luke's old friend in the Empire confronts the Rebels, accusing them of killing innocent people - "how many people do you think died when the Death Star was destroyed".

All in all, it's a good read. Don't get me wrong - it's not Shakespeare, but as far as graphic novels go, it's up there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, solid, immersive game, 30 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Fable II (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
What makes Fable II really appealing to me is the fact there is so much to do. The game feels like a cross between Oblivion and The Sims, where you are inside an immersive world where you can do whatever you like.

What I mean is that you can essentially enjoy yourself without even having to complete quests - in just ONE city you can:
1) buy a business, monitor and alter the prices and recieve money from it
2)buy a house and rent it out to someone
3) socialise with villagers and potentially marry one of them, making sure that you see their likes and dislikes: you can seduce or marry shopkeepers to recieve better deals on items (you can even have a gay marriage if that's what you want)
4) buy a home (there are many in one city, some large, some shabby) and decorate it, and live in it with your spouse if you wish
5) go to a stylist and a tailor's, and get haircuts and clothes, even being able to change the colour with dyes
6) explore the whole city in search of hidden chests and underground items
7) go into a bar and play bar games
8) have your own job (working as a blacksmith, at a bar, even in an assassins society or being a bounty hunter)

and that's just the beginning of it, forgetting the lush environments, the nice music, the great gun/weapon/spell combat system, and the sheer massiveness of what there is to do in the whole world

2.0 out of 5 stars This guide is WRONG, 30 Oct. 2008
I got this guide along with the game, and started using it to find all the chests and dig spots that I could. Even though the location they put on their maps for chests, dig spots, dive spots etc. are correct, the ITEMS THEY LIST YOU SHOULD FIND ARE WRONG.

This proves to be very confusing, when the guide tells you a chest should contain money and it actually contains, say, a potion.

Also this guide will make mistakes like telling you where to find a gargoyle under the "Silver Key" section for an area.

Couldn't anyone have checked over this guide before it was released? I'm not very impressed...
