Thorn Jack: A Night and Nothing Novel (Night and Nothing Novels)

4.0 out of 5 stars 90210 Goes Gothic, August 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm giving this four stars because it is beautifully written and very descriptive, Harbour really does paint a vivid picture with words.
As for the characters and storyline, it's a good premise but I have to admit to finding it slow going at times and the characters actions and motives are at best juvenile.
These are supposed to be college students but it came across as typical high school peer pressure and cliques.
I wanted to like this but found it frustrating at times, some of the characters act like much younger than their supposed ages.
The spooky characters are very menacing and the sense of other worldliness is very well written.
Just didn't satisfy my tastes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor battery life, August 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
First it's compact and has multiple uses and yes they all work.
It doesn't look very strong, I would have preferred to see a more robust/shock absorbent type casing.
I also would have preferred an electrical charging cord, as the battery runs down pretty quickly and doesn't run very long.
So you have to remember to keep it charged prior to severe weather happening.
It's not a bad product but could have been so much better with a few improvements.
Tried to keep mine on a window ledge in constant sunshine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Off Shoot From Ancient Aliens, August 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Don't be put off by some of the titles to the episodes in this off shoot series from Ancient Aliens, there are some really interesting concepts and new ideas being looked at. I was pleasantly surprised by most of the episodes and intregued enough to continue to buy and watch after the first episode. Giorgio, the host, is very enthusiastic about each of the subjects covered, visits some fascinating places and finds experts with some very different ideas and theories. Curious to see where this series will go.

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK Stargate But Not The Best, August 16, 2014
Was mostly a predictable plot, some middling acting, not the best Stargate story. Shame really as I really loved the original movie and some of the series episodes were very good, This is ok but nothing special.

3.0 out of 5 stars Edgar Cayce Remembered, July 29, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A family member who gives a chatty interview but nothing of any great depth.
If you know the basics of Edgar Cayce and were looking for more in depth information, this is not going to deliver.
Very home movie like and mildly entertaining but not educational.

3.0 out of 5 stars Police Procedural With A Nod To The Paranormal, July 29, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A police procedural with a nod to the paranormal but with all the in-house bickering and intra-office politics of real life.
There are murders with the same M.O. of deceased serial killer and empty factories and warehouses due for redevelopment that seem to be falling prey to a serial arsonist. Well drawn and full fleshed out characters that add to the story telling and I would have given four stars if I hadn't figured out the killer about half way through - but maybe I'm just a naturally suspicious bugger and didn't trust the good old boys!
It's my first D.I. McLean book, so I can state it does stand alone and can be enjoyed without having read any of the previous novels in the series.
Well written and with a little twist of the supernatural to add a little spice, not bad for a bedtime read.


Flipside: A Journey Into the Afterlife
Flipside: A Journey Into the Afterlife
DVD
Price: $1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Opening Minds, July 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This not a high budget film but wow, it is very interesting.
Mostly concerned with people who've taken part in past life regression by deep hypnosis and the retelling of their experiences of not just previous lives but of the times in between those lives, spent on the astral plane with their guides and teachers.
The sincerity that is obvious and the experiences described are very moving.
It would take a very hard hearted soul to not be moved while viewing this.
Very interesting and be prepared to have your mind expanded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amy & Steve Are Back, July 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
They are back and diving in at the deep end of the paranormal pool, as usual.
The relationship between Amy and Steve still works so well and their empathy for the home owners is still ever present.
Fans, like myself will not be disappointed with this new series and the show seems to be going from strength to strength with each season.
I do wish that seasons two and three would be made available, as they are not even out on DVD.
Could someone at Amazon have a word with the Travel Channel? Please.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short Story Collection, July 24, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm not a huge fan of short stories but I am a fan of Simon Green did enjoy this collection.
There are seventeen stories in all, ranging from his first efforts to tales which include characters from his recent well known series.
At the end of each story there is a short piece by the author giving background and insights into the genesis of each one.
As a taster for Green's work it would really be a good introduction for new readers, for the Green fan's it is an enjoyable and satisfying collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth, Silky Volume, July 16, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A truly wonderful conditioner. Really does what it promises, with no residue or build up left on hair.
When applying it is not thick or heavy but light and easy to rinse off.
Smells like a herbal shampoo to me when applied but when hair is dry it just smells clean, with no heavy perfumes.
My hair is very fine, dry and coloured but this leaves my hair silky smooth with lots of lift and volume.
Great product, will be using again and looking for others in this line.
