A few bits of news and just links to websites. A bit amateur looking and some ads in places which don't look good.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's no Child 44, 9 Feb. 2014
After the enjoyable experience of reading Child 44 a few years ago, I was eager to get stuck into The Secret Speech. The book started off slow and makes assumptions such as that the reader already knows the main characters and that Smith has no need to elaborate on what he has already wrote in Child 44 making them seem like cardboard cut outs rather than real people; I felt no empathy or feelings towards any of them, considering that I had read the book a few years previous, I could have done with reminding of what their purpose was.
The book is riddled with spelling and grammatical errors making it hard to understand in places as the sentences do not flow correctly. The same can be said for the entire plot; it feels rushed. One scene finishes and then the next chapter, the characters are in an entirely different situation, making the reader make assumptions on what has happened in the meantime. This feels like a novel wrote by a person in their first year of a creative writing degree and not by a seasoned, highly acclaimed author.
The novel has no depth, feeling or reason; I'm never sure what characters are good or bad or how I should feel about them.
I have only ever put down two books in my life without finishing them; The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and The Secret Speech. I got to within twenty pages of the finish, skipped to the end through boredom, realised that I had made the right decision and went back to reading something by Stephen King; a real writer who cares about his characters like they are his children not as if they are chess pieces to be moved around without rhyme or reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic idea!, 26 Mar. 2013
A great idea that takes a lot of stress out of putting together a hospital bag as it's all in there. All you need to add is your clothes and baby clothes. It will make a great changing after the birth. Delivery was very quick and the seller provided a great service.
It is a great deal for a fraction of the price of other pre packed bags.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite Stephen King, 18 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Scream: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
The author is trying to hard to be Stephen King, mix this in with the feeling of trying to be converted to Christianity with his constant Bible bashing and it makes for a very poor read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best sitcom Ever Made, 9 Jan. 2005
In my opinion this is the best sitcom ever made. The first 3 series are so funny, but there are a total of 9 series. so surely the others should be winging there way to DVD over the next year or so. I myslef would like to think so. If you like Friends, Cheers, Frasier, etc. this is the DVD for you. Hours of laughs from the amusing stand up material of Jerry to the hilairous slapstick comedy of Kramer. Packed with hours of extra features, i cannot reccomend this enough. BUY IT!
