5.0 out of 5 stars Full of surprises -- a delightful romp, November 27, 2015
This review is from: Diddlywick (Paperback)
A delightful romp and one of the funniest books I've read in a long time. If you enjoy Carl Hiaasen, you'll enjoy this, but "Diddlywick" is full of surprises — believe me, this is not like anything else you've read. Let's hope Mr. Balzac is already working on his next opus.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you love the character of Sherlock Holmes, January 15, 2015
This book is an well-written obscenity. If one were able to give a book a negative five star rating, this one would deserve it. If you love the character of Sherlock Holmes, with all his strengths and flaws, this book will leave you traumatized and enraged. Fair warning.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs quite a bit of improvement, November 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The idea that sparked its creation is certainly surprising enough to be intriguing; however, the execution is simply inept. The author never, ever captures the original voice of Holmes and Watson--indeed, he never even seems to try to do so, littering Holmes' narrative with glaring, clunking 20th/21st century Americanisms throughout. Furthermore, the author's syntactical gifts are seriously impaired, with bizarre sentence constructions and even horrendous malapropisms; for example, he really ought to know the difference between "stepmother" and "mother-in-law." This is a book that badly needs a competent editor and proofreader.

The most egregious problem with this effort, however, is that he promises a payoff that is never delivered. At least in the first volume, the whole effort simply falls flat.

Given the dreadful writing and the disappointing results in volume one, I certainly don't recommend this series. If you're looking for another good series in the same genre, I would recommend Will Thomas's excellent "Barker & Llewelyn" series instead.

Would very much like to try these--they seem like a wonderful idea. But....$65 for a pair? Seems too high a price for this item.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea -- if it didn't crash all the time, November 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ultimate Jigsaw Puzzle HD (App)
This would be an entertaining game suite, if it weren't for two problems. First, and most seriously, it constantly crashes mid-play. Second, it is a little disappointing that all the puzzle pieces are on the board at the very start of the game--unlike a real jigsaw puzzle, which allows you to gradually fill the playing surface with joined pieces.

On the plus side, the game offers a very wide selection of good quality pictures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for the price, March 18, 2008
I totally disagree with the prior review. I have had this printer for a couple of years and it has been extremely reliable, with very few paper jams. And clearing the paper jams is quite easy, actually, if you know what you're doing - it's an almost straight paper path with access from the rear as well as the front of the printer. (Perhaps the previous reviewer should take the time to read the manual -- what a concept!) The print quality is excellent and the speed is terrific, especially for a printer in this price range. My only quibble is that HP refused to provide a Windows Vista driver for this printer, so -- although the printer still works fine -- I don't have all the features I used to have under XP Pro (like duplexing, which I now have to do manually). This is a very good printer, especially if you're still running Windows XP.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly the worst Sherlock Holmes film ever made!, December 7, 2007
This review is from: Sherlock - Case of Evil (DVD)
A lurid, seamy, thoroughly revolting exercise in gratuitous excess. For anyone who knows anything about Holmes and Watson, let alone someone who loves the characters and Doyle's stories, this film is a form of cruel and unusual punishment. It should be an embarrassment to everyone involved in the project. "Holmes" fails to observe, fails to deduce based upon observations, and acts impulsively, irrationally, incompetently and dishonorably -- none of which the "real" Sherlock Holmes would have ever dreamt of doing, at any age. D'Onofrio's performance as Moriarty is an embarrassing cardboard cut-out composed of nothing more than a collection of cliché "villainous gestures." Theakston's nauseatingly excessive directorial style ranges from the lurid to the hallucinogenic. The screenplay brings absolutely nothing new or imaginative to the Holmes legend: throwing in a bit of arbitrary and implausible sex does not constitute a flash of imaginative genius -- it's just another crass attempt to "sex up" an otherwise worthless movie and insults the audience members' intelligence. Avoid this horrible mess. Watch Billy Wilder's "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes" or any of Jeremy Brett's early Holmes outings -- "The Master Blackmailer," for example -- instead.
