Replacement for same model which is now defunct after quite a few years. No plugs or need to adjust for holiday/change of clock. However, slightly miffed that I paid £3 more only a couple of months ago for same product from same company!!

I like Simon Brett and these short stories are perfect for busy days - just pick up and put down when you have a moment to spare.

3.0 out of 5 stars More action, 26 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First time with this author. Starts OK with good plot line but never moves very far and there is too much dialogue and not enough action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something completely different, 13 April 2014

Wasn't sure it would hold my attention but kept turning the pages and enjoyed it immensely. Will certainly read others by this author (even though I failed the questionnaire on Q.1!!)

3 year old grandson really enjoys putting this together and then changing it! Hasn't bothered to put cars etc on it yet - too busy re-arranging.

Excellent quality - worth the extra for proper outfit. Hoping my grandson will love this but doesn't want to jump off windowsill

Short and sweet but nonetheless enjoyable. Hope very much he will re-visit some of his old stomping grounds in the future

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty boring really, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An awful lot of unnecessary and boring details, and not enough action. Would have liked more involvement with Robin. Skipped many pages. Certainly not a thriller/mystery story in the true sense. Harry Potter very re-readable but probably won't pick this up again.


The French House
The French House

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been (so much) better!, 27 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The French House (Kindle Edition)
Enjoyed the story whilst it was in France (hence the title!) but why leave that thread to introduce other storylines which frankly I skipped (most of the last 2/3 chapters). I wasn't interested in Mark's relationship nor did I want to know about CC's mother and her toy-boy. Also found the 'bad' language totally unnecessary. More detail of the South of France, renovating the house, problems with the loony aunt etc. would have been so much more interesting.
