1.0 out of 5 stars Toilet, 10 April 2014
This review is from: Breakout (Amazon Video)
This is a truly awful film - please don't rent or watch it.
Brendan Fraser's prison break is ridiculously easy and the rest of the film is a bunch of D-grade actors blundering round in the forrest shouting "ruuuuun"

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Odd, 22 Dec. 2013
My son loved the original Rainbow Fish so we bought this for him. On the whole it's OK but there are a couple of things that don't work very well and make this a slightly odd, somewhat disappointing sequel.
1. The writing (or maybe it's the translation?)- is not very good - frequent unnecessary repetition - "Rainbow fish swam down and down and down (and down...)"; they looked and looked and looked...(did they look some more? - wonderful!); At least half the pages in the book begin with the line "Rainbow fish... and the firefly squid"
2. Speaking of the firefly squid - there are a lot of very random creatures in this book. There is a page about the poisonous tendrils of a "siphonophore" - I really have no idea what this is or what place it has a childrens book. "Daddy, what's a siphnononfore?" "I am truly bamboozled son. That's what they invented Wikipedia for."
3. My favourite random creature is the bilious dumbo octopus. There is one page where the octopus rather charmingly gives rainbow fish a new shiny coat by projectile vomiting all over him. His rather unconvincing response? "its beautiful truly". Guaranteed to freak you out.
Anyway, I'm glad I've got that off my chest. Happy reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Onwards and Upwards, 1 Oct. 2003
In the second installment of the Divine Commedy we follow Dante as he strugles up the mountain of purgatory on his way to the Earthly Paradise and his beloved Beatrice. Accompanied by the ever faithful Virgil he passes various sinners on the way to the top and we get to see the brutal punishments they undergo as they atone for their sins. I enjoyed this book as much as the Inferno - if anything the punishments are even harsher and, as ever, Mark Musa's inspired translation and helpful notes make it a pleasure to read. Bring on Paradise.
