4.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT NOTES, but not all themes are explored in depth!, 17 Mar. 2010
This book will help you if you are doing A View From The Bridge at GCSE MASSIVELY!! It has everything you want, detailed summaries of the two acts that will help you understand the stuff that goes on behind the language; really good character analysis that shows not just the personality of the character, but HOW and WHY the character engages with other characters; and the most helpful 'How to improve your grade' section which gives in-depth development from an E-grade answer to an A* grade answer! My only criticism is that I would expect the York Notes people to know that our essay questions are usually on a theme, and even though there is a section with themes, the themes are just not that detailed! My question for GCSE is based around Masculinity and I know that there is an infinite amount of masculinity stuff they could put in this York NBotes book, but there is only one page on it!

Overall 4/5 stars: EVERYTHING IN THE BOOK IS NEAR PERFECT, but when you hold the book and see how thin it is, and you look at the Themes section, you just get the impression that they have just not spent the time on the guide that they should have.

Really hope this helped, and good luck with everything!

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT GAME but there are a couple of tiny issues..., 17 Mar. 2010
This game is really a great game. Nintendo have done a good job with the graphics and the design of the game.
The very first thing I noticed, which I was very pleased about is that Nintendo have decided only to expand on the Balance and Aerobic sections, with about 11 games in each!

The Yoga and Muscle Workouts were kind of neglected, which to me is a good thing, as I never really ever played them. But if you are someone who enjoys these workouts, don't worry because the original Wii Fit and ALL of the activities are included in Wii Fit Plus - as well as ALL OF YOUR DATA FROM THE WII FIT GAME, that is if you had it.

Another thing that really impressed me and lots of others, was the variety of new games, from a Segway Circuit to a Juggling Circus Activity. The possibilites seem endless and more games now include a chance to use all Wii Fit board, Nunchuck and Wii Remote together interactively! The colours are exciting and the integration of personality of your Mii is well appreciated also. There are personalised programmes for your specific needs, e.g. if you want to tone your back, or if you want to retain your youth! There is also this thing called a Calorie Counter, which measures your calorie intake using data from the food you eat.

If you have pets or a baby, you can use a special Wii Fit programme that will track their progress as well! Also, there are fun new mini-games like it gives you a certain mass and you pile up objects on the Wii Board to try and get the weight right!

Only two little complaints:
1. There are no warm up or cool down activities, which would be very helpful and SAFE if you are doing activities like Jogging or Hula Hoop for 30 minutes+.
2. If you are one of those people who love the game for the first few days, and then it goes a bit cold a lot of the time, this game may apply. It hasn't applied to me as such, but it isn't used on a daily basis, as they advertise it to be like, and how some people use Wii Fit. However, it is a blast when I re-visit the games I loved in the first place!

Overall 4 star because of all of the above- but to be honest if you have Wii Fit already, this is a GREAT buy that is value for your money. If you are going to buy a Wii Fit with the board from scratch, I recommend getting the Wii Fit with this game included with the Board!

I really hope this helped!!

5.0 out of 5 stars well worth the buy, 4 Jan. 2010
I bought 4 of these jars for food storage to place on the worktops - they look very nice and adds a nice
touch to the kitchen and its a good price as well.
