5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping from beginning to end, June 17 2011
This review is from: Before I Go To Sleep (Paperback)
First let me say that this book is nothing like Fifty First Dates; the main point being that this is a thriller not a comedy. If you were to compare it to a movie, Momento would be a better choice. Yes, it's another story involving amnesia but it's good.

I read this book in one sitting. The premise is rather simple but the way the story unfolds is completely captivating: a woman wakes up each day unable to remember anything that's happened in the last 20 or so years. The story is her journal as she pieces together her life and dark secrets are slowly revealed. This is a gripping, entertaining and unputdownable thriller and should be the big summer blockbuster this year!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Broke within hours of using, Jan. 15 2011
I haven't had time to return this product yet but it broke within hours of using. The first time using it was fine, it worked well and I was happy with all functions. After about an hour, I noticed that certain keys weren't working and then the shift key wouldn't work. Now only a few keys work and it shuts down periodically. Hopefully it's just a dud and the replacement will work better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good information if you're self employed, April 29 2008
This review is from: Taxman Is Watching (Paperback)
I've always been nervous about getting audited so I find this book to be indispensable. The case histories are particualrly interesting and there is a lot of other valuable information throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars If anyone can du-et, it's Anne, Dec 10 2007
As usual, Anne's voice is flawless. I especially like Cotton Jenny with Olivia Newton John, Love Song with KD Lang and You Won't See Me. Congratulations Anne on another great album.

PS - the person who gave 1 star because the album cost a $1 more in Canada - get a life. There are 300 million people in the US - it's called economies of scale.

Triomf
Triomf
by Marlene van Niekerk
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars One of het best novels of the 90's, Nov. 26 2005
This review is from: Triomf (Paperback)
This novel is simply put - unforgettable. Although, some may find this work disturbing and very uncomfortable to read, I was completely drawn into the dysfunction and hopelessness of the Benade family. Van Nierkerk brilliantly positions Afrikaaner politics against the hopes and dreams of one of the most bizarre families you'll ever meet.

Nothing really new here. Most of this information you can read in one chapter in any of the low-carb diet books on the market.
