4.0 out of 5 stars Success beyond Potter, January 29, 2014
This review is from: The Casual Vacancy (Paperback)
Well written and simply enough for a very lay audience to grasp in terms of writing style.

The characters are intriguing, multifaceted, and you feel attached to all of them, whether you love them, hate them, admire them, or pity them.

The book isn't traditional in that there isn't a real protagonist or antagonist and all the characters are interlocked and have almost equal page time to share their narrative. Rowling weaves through narrative POVs effortlessly and without much adieu.

My one qualm is how slow the book starts--there are many characters and you have to focus at first on who is who and what their interpersonal relationships are, because it gets tricky. The history of the town and the classes was a bit too long and drawn out, but once you're 30% of the book in, the book really starts.

Conclusion: look, this is totally different than HP. Harry Potter was about amazing story telling and plot development, whereas The Casual Vacancy is more about relationship building and character development. A good, addicting read regardless.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelming., November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pokémon Y (Video Game)
I'm a diehard Pokemon fan and wanted to love this. I really did.

Pros:
3D battles.
The new pokemon are great.
Animations in general look great.

Cons:
-Pacing! From first to second gym takes forever. The rest are tightly put together.
-3D only available in battles.
-The biggest issue: this game is WAY TOO EASY. They included exp. share on automatic and have little side games you can do for experience that literally took any difficulty out of this game. You have to to try to make this difficult. You blast away every opponent and thats not fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars KH is the same great KH, November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When I first put this game in, I wasnt sure that the graphics were actually better than the original KH for PS2.

I checked later--they are. The game play of this is just so much fun. If youve never played before, youre in for a huge treat. If you played the original and loved it, you will enjoy this one as well.

My only small drawbacks:
-Only 30 hours of gameplay needed to complete the game on normal mode. Up to 50 with all the side quests.
-Not enough new content from original KH. There's new abilities, new sidequests, new heartless, but I wish we could have had a whole nother world or character or something.
-Graphics could probably be improved even a little more.

It's probably a 4.5/5. I just love this game so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Television, November 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Best bang for your buck.

32 inches, amazing graphics.

Was worried about the refresh rate being too slow to play video games (as one reviewer said)--I didnt find this an issue at all. I play PS3 games on here and the rendering is gorgeous.

Someone said the volume isnt that great on this--we use this in a game room, not a large living room, but I haven't had to turn it up past 50/100 volume yet.

Very happy with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best tanning lotion., September 25, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
And I've used A LOT of different ones.

Pros: all natural ingredients, made in hawaii, makes you DARK with as little as 60 minutes out in the sun with in.

Cons: can stain your clothes if they're light colored, and a little bit greasy. Both small prices to pay for the results you see, in my opinion, but wanted to share so there are no surprises!

1.0 out of 5 stars My sweat turned the beads green..., September 25, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The beads came in, they looked okay, albeit a little big. Within the first use, I went out and played tennis and the beads turned a totally tinged green-blue on the parts where it made contact with my skin!

Not okay, and not sure why this happened. A cheap coat of brown paint, maybe?

3.0 out of 5 stars Kelly's Debut, April 24, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm a long time follower (and interacter) with @KellyOxford on Twitter and I couldnt wait to get the book.

To be honest, I was a bit underwhelmed. She's hilarious and irreverent on her Twitter account but her collection of essays is more relatively tame and it seems as sometimes she's just trying to elaborate stories to bring some humor into them.

The book picks up half-way through and there's a few laugh out loud parts, like her story about going to Las Vegas to see David Copperfield and getting a lap dance from a female stripper (with her husband). Overall, it's a good book, but not great. I'm glad that Kelly's branching out and really becoming a force in Hollywood.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh, June 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're 100lb girl, maybe these work for you. As a 180lb man, I needed to take 2-4 tablets to really feel the effect, and it never lasted more than two hours. Take your size in mind when buying this.

The hat is too large--made for big headed people. Material is flimsy, low quality, wouldn't purchase again and would not recommend.
