5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Gift for New Parents, 11 Nov. 2010
First saw this in a real-life shop (remember those!) but cheaper on Amazon.

Packed full of the usual firsts. First tooth, first step etc but lots and lots of excellent little touches such as the cost of a pint of milk when baby was born, the car baby was brought home in etc. All small things that can be looked back on in 20 years or so and make Mum & Dad smile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fine, 11 Nov. 2010
It's a cable. Not much more to say to be honest. It charges my iPhone 4 and iPad perfectly fine. I use it with the Belkin cigarette charger and haven't had a problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what is says on the tin, 15 Sept. 2010
Handy little bit of kit. Very compact so can be a little hard to get out of the cigarette socket but for the price it's spot on

3.0 out of 5 stars A Promising Start..., 3 Mar. 2010
As other reviews have already said this is a bit of a departure from the usual Stephen Leather fare.

The writing style is more-or-less the same - indeed, Jack Nightingale could be related to Dan Shepherd such are the simalarities but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

I found the story to be enaging but felt it could have been fleshed out a lot more. There was a pleasing sense of forboding throughout with the references to Simon Underwood but unfortunately these petered out to nothing. The same with the killings of Jacks friends and family - the purpose behind the deaths and the ending itself felt rushed and wrapped up too quickly. Having said that, it's a testament to the book when you don't want it to end.

The characters are pleasent company and I look forward to spending some more time with them in the coming books. I can see Jack becoming specialised in investigating cases that are more out of the ordinary.

Overall a good start to a new series that shows a lot of promise. You won't be disappointed if you buy it - and even though it's a departure from the usual round and tumble of Leather it's written just as well as the Spider Shepherd books (and others).

(Bet I get a telling off on the blog now ;-))

50 coasters. Couldn't burn on any of the discs. Tried with various machines and burners at home and work. Disappointing.

Best film of 2008. Really comes to life on Blu. The IMAX scenes in particular are very sharply detailed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cross In Name Only, 21 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Cross Country (Hardcover)
Wow, what a departure from the usual Alex Cross books. Unfortunately the change doesn't work. This could have been any book and just happens to have the name Alex Cross as the main character. His reasons for goign to Africa are tenuous at best and his reasons for staying outlandish. Cross constantly goes on about his familybut then abandons them to go chasing round the world to avenge a college friend he hasn't seen in 20 years.

Not the best Cross book. If you're new to the series start with the earlier ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does What It Says On The Tin, 4 Aug. 2008
Can't comment on the software or remote as it went straight into a Media Center machine and that was that. Works fine and worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars So Far, So Good, 4 Aug. 2008
Been going a fair few months now with no problems (touch wood). It stores most of our DVDs and gets used daily. Cool, and more importantly, quiet and the fact that it sleeps and wakes with your computer is excellent.

Will certainly look at Western Digital again when it's time to upgrade.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 Nov. 2007
I was looking forward to this book and eagerly dropped another half way through when this arrived.

Unfortunatley it differs from previous Tony/Carol books. There's no real plot as such and we don't get an interesting killer or insights into their psyche. With Tony being sidelined he gets little to do but be perfect and right in every point he makes. The killings - such as they are - aren't particularly note worthy and both plot strands are wrapped up almost as an afterthought in the last few pages.
