5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent brief guide, 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really excellent brief guide to the British Army's cap badges of WW2. Most useful as a check list for the collector, which is how I use it. Badges are pictured full size and in colour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful regimental family trees, 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The most useful things here are the family trees of the regiments, shown in table form which works well. The very rapid whizz through centuries of British military history is far too sketchy to be of any use, but I didn't buy the book for that, so that's OK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Renko in the new Russia, 21 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tatiana (Paperback)
The great thing about Renko is that he doesn't age as quickly as the rest of us. He can keep up with developments in Russia, including in this episode war crimes in Chechnya, a nuclear submarine disaster and the bleak fate of Russians who live in former outposts of the Soviet empire. Cruz Smith deploys his core cast effectively, maintaining a brisk pace and a wry sense of humour. He is very good on the ways in which modern Russia is making itself up as it goes along, driven chiefly by money, of course, but also by a lingering fear of inferiority compared to the West. Where will the next instalment take us - eastern Ukraine amongst the special forces masquerading as 'patriots'? I can't wait.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good bit of kit, but don't bother with the software, 21 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this version of the now-ubiquitous 1TB external hard drive because it was the most popular and well reviewed. I haven't been disappointed with the device itself, though the accompanying software is clunky and caused problems on my laptop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Serviceable and reasonably priced, 21 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Serviceable and reasonably priced, it does the job of protecting my external hard drive. But because it had to come all the way from China by surface mail, it was three weeks later than I needed it.

This review is from: Gorky Park (Paperback)
The original Renko novel: fresh then and equally so now. I recommend reading the whole lot in sequence, as I did recently. You won't be disappointed.

Not 'Gavin and Stacey' and never likely to be. That's all you need to know.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hilarious, of course. Ground-breaking, naturally. Launched several careers, didn't it? The thing that is most impressive is the chemistry between the actors and between the writers - you can't buy that. Another Welsh sitcom by and starring Ruth Jones, 'Stella', is all the proof you need, surely.

The folk scene's current super group provides a marvellous tour through the recently completed catalogue of English folk music. Just sit back and marvel at the musicianship!
