Elizabeth is Missing
Elizabeth is Missing
Price: £3.66

4.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinarily well written and very moving novel, 6 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a stunning debut novel - written as if by an Alzheimer's sufferer who is bewildered by the fact that her friend Elizabeth has disappeared from home. There is a rational solution to where Elizabeth actually is, but it unfolds gradually and it is heartbreaking to read the story. Our 'heroine's' daughter gets more and more frustrated with her mum, even though she understands what's happening - something that will resonate with everyone who has had to try to help a relative or friend with this incredibly distressing illness. The book is beautifully written and I look forward to Emma Healey's next novel. Can quite understand why it has been such a best seller - there can hardly be a family anywhere that hasn't been touched by Alzheimers at some point.

This picture of an owl is absolutely beautiful and sort of sums up Christmas, without being sickly. Excellent.

Guide To The Architecture Of London
Guide To The Architecture Of London
by Edward Jones
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful book, 21 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is so much in London that you either wander past without even seeing, or ponder on without being able to put the architecture in context, and this book really helps to sort it out. Laid out helpfully in districts, so it's easy to plan a walk round a specific area. Masses of colour photographs and maps.

This sheet seems to be very good quality, and fits the deep mattress it was bought for perfectly. Haven't washed it yet, but hopefully it will maintain its good looks for a long time. Good purchase.


The Cornish Coast Murder (British Library Crime Classics)
The Cornish Coast Murder (British Library Crime Classics)
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Long gone England brought to life in an easy to read story, 11 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very old-fashioned (obviously!) crime story. Nothing in here to upset the most timorous maiden aunt, and all the better for it. Well written, and gives the reader a sense of a long gone Britain, full of vicars with time on their hands to play amateur detective and avuncular policemen who were only too happy to be assisted by amateur sleuths (such as afore-mentioned Vicar). I doubt whether many readers would have worked out who-dun-it in advance, so it repaid reading to the end to find out. Well written and a cosy, comforting read.

Price: £36.43

5.0 out of 5 stars If there's one thing you can trust in life, it's a pair of Birkies, 9 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my second pair of Birkie Amsterdam slippers and I absolutely adore them. They are utterly reliable in size and quality of manufacture and last for years. They are also solid enough to nip out into the garden in, without falling to pieces if they get a little bit damp. Brilliantly warm, wouldn't be without them.


Chinese Account of the Opium War

4.0 out of 5 stars A good contrast to the British colonial view of the Opium Wars., 21 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting - but only if you know something about the Opium Wars already..... It's relatively uncommon to find nearly contemporaneous accounts from the Chinese viewpoint of events so significant as the Opium Wars, and this book is helpful in putting forward the deep sense of resentment held by the Chinese as a result of the British actions in infecting China with the curse of opium in the 1830s/1840s. It details well the actions taken by Commissioner Lin to try and hold back the British, without initially a full scale war (which Lin knew the Chinese couldn't win) and also, to some extent, the bewilderment of the Chinese who found it hard to understand why the British didn't play by the same rules as the Chinese did. A short book, but a very useful adjunct to gung-ho British accounts of this shameful period.


Kipling Women's Garan Shoulder Bag K1517611W Pink Coral
Kipling Women's Garan Shoulder Bag K1517611W Pink Coral

5.0 out of 5 stars My new best favourite bag!, 6 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant - as ever. I have about six Kipling bags - different shapes, different sizes, different colours and this one is my new favourite. The zipper flap makes a really big pocket when opened up - big enough for A4 notebooks, tablets etc. and the zipped main internal section has heaps of room as well. I love the canvas shoulder strap which doesn't dig into my shoulder, and it's long enough to go cross-body as well. Beautifully made, as all Kipling bags are - in fact the perfect everyday bag to carry my clutter about. Thanks, Kipling. And I love the coral colour as well, it really stands out.
