Grip with Silicone Handles for Nintendo 3DS - Stan&hellip by CTA Digital
I've had this grip for about a month now and it has been invaluable. I've not got large hands by any means, but I am not a child and any prolonged period on the 3DS is hard on the hands. I had been getting pain through my palm which I attributed to the DS. Since I started using the grip, that pain has disappeared. It is makes the system much more comfortable to hold puts my thumbs in a better position to access the buttons more naturally.

I'm going to speak more specifically to the 3DS version, rather than rehash everything about the actual game. I'm not very far into it yet, but I do have a few observations/gripes:

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings, Feb. 5 2007
As a special education worker myself, I have read most of Torey Hayden's books and enjoyed them. While I did find some elements of this latest book interesting and enjoyable, I was also somewhat put off by it at times. For someone who has worked extensively with children, children with learning disabilities at that, Hayden can be incredibly long-winded. On at least three occasions she goes on for multiple page soliloquies, each aimed at a 9 year old child. At the end of one such speech, she remarks "Cassandra didn't seem to be listening." Truth be told, neither was I. I skimmed ahead.

The storytelling is a bit awkward, bordering on distracting at some points. (Indeed, how many… Read more
