The Paying Guests
The Paying Guests

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.00

4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this book and it kept me on edge and ..., 5 Oct. 2014
This review is from: The Paying Guests (Hardcover)
I enjoyed this book and it kept me on edge and I really wanted to know the end .
The period details of early twenties London are perfectly rendered .
Lillians family are perfectly described and felt real and fully rounded
The interaction between the three main characters is very good and tense at times
Its a book of two halves really
I like the fact that all the ends were not neatly tied up at the end of the book
I would recommend it

4.0 out of 5 stars Im glad I persevered, 4 Sept. 2014
This review is from: The Night Watch (Kindle Edition)
I eventually came to love this book although I started it three times , I found it strange at first and just couldn't get into it but I'm glad I persevered. This is the first Sarah Waters book I've read and I'm now reading The Paying Guests. In The Night Watch I loved Kay I thought her character was beautifully written by the author.

This is a brilliant bag at a fantastic price .The bag is roomy and will be perfect for an overnight trip.Although it doesn't have all the pockets etc we are used to with Kipling it does have one hanging pocket for your valuables
It has all the style of of Kipling it even has a very cute monkey, ( please note not a furry one)
I bought the summer tropical, as shown in the picture
I couldn't be happier

How to Draw Faces: in Simple Steps
by Susie Hodge
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 12 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was in my opinion a complete waste of money! It offers no practical help at all ! It's a random collection of faces to copy it even starts in an odd place with a couple? No easy steps explained at all just copying
The faces chosen to copy are boring you would be better off buy a newspaper or magazine and copying people from there! I would not recommend this book to anyone
