Stardust

Gaiman is certainly an extremely talented and inventive writer. However, I just find that most of his books - not all but far too many for my tastes - develop a very promising story, a few sympathetic characters, put them in interesting situations ... and then the ending leaves you wanting MUCH MUCH more. Stardust was no different where I just felt the ending was a result of NG getting bored and wanting to move on to the next project. I just feel like he's the kid from school that COULD get straight A's if he wanted to, but is content with B's and C's. That's life.

Led Zeppelin's 'Physical Graffiti' is one of those albums every rock or 'music in general' fan MUST own. The legends at their best!

Great service amazon, why don't you go get a muffin while I talk to the boys and girls from Marvel?

Folks, this movie STUNK. I get the whole 'let's develop the character more' thing, but so many clichés, so many tired approaches. I was furious after this and am considering ignoring the next 'Captain America' movie in protest. This DVD was a waste of my money, and watching it a waste of my time.

OK, I read 'Divergent'. I literally did not put the book down and then rushed to get the following two books in the trilogy. The final outcome at the end of the third book is shocking, emotional and really well handled. AND YET... I'm still not sure how I feel about this series. I hate reading books that I feel are being written to be made into movies. It just strikes me as 'greedy'. Also the character development except for a core group of pro-/antagonists is confusing. Some bits felt rushed; AND YET... I could not put the books down. Careful with the 'Young adult' label as there as some scènes (not sex) that require some true maturity to process. I would say if you love to read, get this book along with parts 2 and 3 AND HURRY before you rush out and see the movie (where I've read is NOT entirely faithful to the book). I would also add that I hated the Harry Potter books, never even glanced in the direction of the Twilight series and have not been interested in reading Hunger Games. So that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

As I apparently have to write 20 words for the review to count, allow me to say that this package contained black, red (magenta), blue (cyan) and yellow ink. Yay ink!

This is an amazing collection of music (though misleading as there's only 1!!! bonus track for those of us that bought the 'grey' version here in Europe). Having a copy of 'The Rain Song' itself is Worth the price! Jimmy Page is a freaking Genius with music and the sometimes subtle, sometimes not changes he has made in this version to the original 'No Quarter' release makes for AMAZING listening! A must-have for all rock fans, full stop.

Great service from amazon, no discussion. The book itself is interesting. Very typical American style of writing, not sure though how 'Young adult' this is owing extreme violence and murders. Certainly not Shakespeare and it's obviously designed like most American best sellers, that is, you have quick chapters, moderate character development, albeit I'll grant that the ending was not as rushed as many in this genre tend to be. I will leave it for the moment as 'it has potential' though I fear the author is pushing for (or is being pushed towards) another 'Twilight/Hunger Games/Divergent' path.
