4.0 out of 5 stars Nice fruity flavour and a chewy texture (not too soft), 13 Jun. 2016

This review is from: Meerkats 500g (Misc.)
As a present for a Meerkat fanatic, these were very well received! Nice fruity flavour and a chewy texture (not too soft). I haven't given 5 stars only because they arrive in a clear plastic bag with a plain printed label, instead of more fun packaging.


Completely Unexpected Tales: Tales of the Unexpected and More Tales of the Unexpected
Completely Unexpected Tales: Tales of the Unexpected and More Tales of the Unexpected
by Roald Dahl
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and macabre, 13 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderful book that never seems to date. I've read it several times since being a teenager, all the stories are macabre and leave you feeling uneasy, but that's what Dahl does best! The shortest story is only about 8 pages long, but so well crafted that you feel you've entered an entire world. Definitely worth reading.


The Rosie Effect: Don Tillman 2
The Rosie Effect: Don Tillman 2
by Graeme Simsion
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

3.0 out of 5 stars Just read the first book, 28 Mar. 2016
I didn't really enjoy this book because a lot of the plot points and humour come from uncomfortable deception. As other reviewers have noted, Rosie is almost entirely absent from this sequel. Part of the charm of the first book was Don and Rosie falling in love and starting to connect. Most of this story is about them persistently failing to connect with each other, so it feels sad, rather than hopeful and fun like the first book. I'm giving it 3 stars because it's still very readable. But the situations all seem contrived, and Gene plays a large part even though he remains unlikeable. The author was probably under a lot of pressure to create a sequel, and good on him for trying, but next I'd like to read something from him which doesn't involve any of these characters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 15 Sept. 2015
I found this very poorly written. There are some amusing anecdotes about celebrities that Joly met, but most of the book reads as quite sad. He doesn't seem aware of how badly he often behaved (stealing things, making inappropriate midnight calls to people, not fulfilling obligations he'd agreed to). This does seem to be something he's churned out just to get a bit of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars So accurate, it hurts, 24 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Prep (Paperback)
I've never read a book so painfully truthful. This is such an accurate description of what it's like to be a teenager. Fully recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars wheat is bad for you - you get that message after the ..., 5 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't finished reading this book yet because it seems fairly repetitive. OK, wheat is bad for you - you get that message after the first few pages. Then it continues in a similar way until at least the middle of the book (which is where I got to). If you're thinking of giving up wheat or you have a suspicion it might be bad for you, my advice is to stop eating it & maybe read the back of this book, but it's not really worth buying.


The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl
The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl
Price: £4.99

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a nice, readable book, 5 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice, readable book. In the middle it gets a little bit boring - it's OK, but it's just someone's life. I hadn't followed Shauna's blog before this, so I didn't really feel invested in her travels around the world and moving to Scotland. But she achieved something very difficult with all that weightloss, and most of the book is an interesting description of her journey from bigger to smaller.
