This review is from: Sherlock: The Casebook (Hardcover)
Would have given this book a higher rating had it been more up to date.
My fault, I should have checked its publication date before purchasing it!

This review is from: Sherlock: Chronicles (Hardcover)
An excellent and fully comprehensive book both for those who have been fans of the TV series and those who have wondered what all the fuss was about.


Team Power 60cm Friction Triple Deck Car Transporter with 9 Racers
Team Power 60cm Friction Triple Deck Car Transporter with 9 Racers
Offered by Magic Inspiration

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The set being made up of a transporter and no fewer than nine racing cars make it well worth the money.
Disappointed that the transporter's three car carrying "layers" are fixed in place and do not slide back and down to enable the child concerned to "drive" the nine cars off and onto the vehicle to / from the "road". This meaning that cars (especially the six on the second and third layers) have to "fly" off and on the transporter.
Transporter (and cars) are robust enough to permit some quite rigorous play with them.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Casdon 611 Shopping Trolley (Toy)
Bought as a gift for my now 3 year old grandson who absolutely loves it (and the wealth of realistic shopping items / products that come with it).
Some difficulty in putting it together (parts to two adults to cope with!!!) but the finished product is robust enough and, I would have thought, attractive enough to satisfy all but the most "difficult" of children in the target age-range.


1,411 QI Facts To Knock You Sideways
1,411 QI Facts To Knock You Sideways
by John Mitchinson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £10.13

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly what the cover says it is, this book follows-on from the previous "1,227 and 1,339" Qi lists of facts books in presenting the reader with the stated number of facts to "Knock You Sideways" (1,411), "Make Your Jaw Drop" (1,399) and "Knock Your Socks Off" (1,227).
Interesting enough to dip into on an ad hoc basis and invaluable to those who attend / set quizzes as facts are quirky enough to be used in a simple "True or False" round or in other, more complex, forms of questions.
Look forward to the next book in the series - perhaps, "1,555 Facts To Test Your Wife's Patience With"?

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly as the label says it is (i.e. "Great Value Pack") as it's cheaper than anywhere else I've seen it.
If you have a Gillette Fusion razor then this is the way to purchase "blades" for it.
Whether or not you think that they give a close enough shave and last as long as you would hope they would is for you to decide and then consider if they're worth the price you have to pay for them.

Words in Time and Place: Exploring Language Through the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary

Edition: Hardcover

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're at all interested in the origins / history of words then this is the book for you.
Covers words within a range of specific fields all of which I found to be of interest.
By setting out the book in the way that it has been, of course, there is scope for future publication(s) covering the history of words in other fields. Cunning or what?

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With any Enya CD you pretty much know what you're going to get as the format remains very similar from one to another.
So, if you're already an Enya fan then you'll enjoy this but you'll also (probably) think, "I've heard all this before!" - even though you haven't!
If you're "new" to Enya then this CD is as good an introduction to her music / style as any other.

This review is from: House of Cards [DVD] [1990] (DVD)
Brilliant when it was orginally on TV and equally so now.
If you only know the current US series of the same name (which is also very good indeed) then find the time to watch Richardson's Urquart in action - you won't be disappointed.
