Generally pleased...it dried out kitchen cupboards and floors after a water leak over about 3 weeks. Easy to operate, fairly quiet, easy to empty, but fills up quickly. Good inside cupboards small spaces.

Looks nice, lots of compartments and space inside. Only disappointment is that after only 1 week's use, stitching is already coming away on one of the card compartments

5.0 out of 5 stars Great alternative to regular Carcassonne, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carcassonne Winter Edition (Toy)
In my massive collection of games, this has to be in the top three of most beautiful games. The artwork on the tiles is lovely, and the snowy landscape which develops as the game progresses results in, " a work of art" (my wife says!). All sorts of really attractive little touches in the artwork; wolves, bears, reindeer, devils, log cabins. The gameplay is the same as regular Carcassonne, apart from a small difference concerning the placing of a Gingerbread Man, which can be ignored if you wish. If I was buying Carcassonne from scratch, this is the edition I would buy. A great game!!

Smart, natty, efficient, eye catching, all enveloping and trend setting. What more could you want from a purse? It does the job


The Good War: An Oral History of World War Two
The Good War: An Oral History of World War Two

5.0 out of 5 stars The key influence on Tony Parker?, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always loved Tony Parker's books in this country, a wonderful range of recorded interviews on topics as varied as crime, army life, the troubles in Northern Ireland and lighthouse keepers. Parker acknowledged his debt to the American Studs Terkel, so this was the first book of his that I have purchased. Terkel's influence on Parker is immediately apparent in the way that he structures and records the interviews conducted.
This is a fascinating take on American life and attitudes to the Second World War, with a very wide range of topics and people included. I felt it was best read in small chunks, taking one interviewee's experience and allowing that to be absorbed. I personally found the sections on attitudes to different races and Japanese internees the most interesting and eye opening, and was startled by the depth of prejudice that existed. The interviews cover life on the American 'Home Front', the war against Japan and American soldiers experiences in Europe. A theme which occurs again and again, even amongst the most professional and battle experienced people is the futility and needlessness of war...a trite comment, but the way in which so many interviewees reach this conclusion is enthralling.
As a result of reading this, two more Studs Terkel books are immediately on order!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good price., 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fifty quid, that's why I was tempted, but ultimately I should have waited and bought one of the later heavily discounted better models, like Fire. I was disappointed, and I didn't think the details made this clear, that it has no backlight, so you can't read it except in daylight or artificial exterior light.

Right size, right tools, right strength. Fits on a key ring, so always ready for action. Best one yet I've owned (lost the last one annoyingly!)

3.0 out of 5 stars A season up north, 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mark Cowan follows Guisborough of the Northern League, with comments on all the games played, as well as considerable background detail about grounds, clubs' fortunes, supporters and officials he met and some of the towns in that League. There are a lot of books of this type, and this holds up well against most of them...often witty, perceptive and written with a real feeling for non league football and its pleasures and problems. I enjoyed three quarters of the book, but felt that the long ending, where virtually every player and official from Guisborough was commented on, in a favourable, bland football programme style, was overlong and ultimately not needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Visit every island!, 6 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tiny Islands (Kindle Edition)
Witty, informative, well illustrated, this account of visits to the 60 Tiny Islands is an excellent read and companion. Some of my favourite places in the UK (eg Steep Holm, Burgh Island, Bass Rock) are described in a depth which added to my awareness of their nature and past. There are many very funny comments and descriptions within the text, and each island is described fluently, with visiting details and other information at the end of each description. It made me want to make a 2014 hope to visit many more.
