The Brief History of the Dead
The Brief History of the Dead
by Kevin Brockmeier
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving,thought provoking and highly original, 27 Mar. 2016
A truly remarkable book. I loved it. The idea is highly original and I found the book very moving. Dovetailing Laura's story with that of others arriving in a city-somewhere it captivated me from the beginning. Fantastic

I'm becoming more and more a fan of Detectives Campbell and Carter. Not harrowing books filled with gore but well written detective stories that are equally as charming as Mitchell and Markby ones


Detour
Detour
by James Siegel
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Well crafted thriller, 6 Mar. 2016
This review is from: Detour (Paperback)
Childless Paula and Joanna want to adopt a baby and settle on Columbia. After getting kidnapped Paul is forced to be come a drug mule in order to save the lives of his wife and potential daughter. Paul and Joanna's stories dovetail throughout the book which is quite a rollercoaster read with lots of twists and turns. A "Two years later" wrapping up the loose ends epilogue was a bit irritating-I'm not a fan of those. The only other irksome bit was that unless you are a consultant paediatrician and the only thing that will save the life of your baby is aspirin then fine but otherwise you NEVER,EVER give babies and children aspirin! These things are easy enough to check and grate somewhat especially as the author has clearly taken time to research other things. Other than that I think it's a good read and I'd recommend it

Brilliant book. Lovely, easy to make recipes and a delight to read too. I have all Rick Stein's books and this one didn't disappoint. I really enjoy his travelogue style and passion for all types of cuisine. Has been allowed onto the dresser so must be good!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware Big Boobs- Buy Bigger!, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In common with just about every uniform tunic going this comes up very small. I went up TWO sizes and still slightly "fitted" feel on the bust. I am normally a 16 and I bought a size 20. I find it extremely annoying that the sizing is so out of kilter with high street shops. The tunic looks fine on and appears to be good material. I need it occasionally for locum work so I am hoping it will last the distance. I am a G cup so I do have boobs! I note 5 stars reviews are generally for the smaller sizes- just wish uniform manufacturers would realise that bra sizes go from A to L cup (at least) so maybe their uniforms ought to take that into account. Otherwise seems like a nice top

Price: £3.89 - £13.37

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for the price, 29 Jan. 2016

This cardigan fits the bill perfectly. Wanted for work to wear over uniform and it's ideal. Although chunky look it is actually quite lightweight but is very warm. Nice dark navy colour. I am a size 16 and this fitted well. I probably wouldn't wear it to a smart occasion but casual/work is fine. The V front is very low coming just under the bust so if you want a higher front-caution. I would certainly recommend this cardigan for general everyday wear. Comfortable and not scratchy

3.0 out of 5 stars Big Boobs? Buy Bigger!, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this plus another tunic (which is going to get a very similar review) to use for locum work. Took roughly 1 week to arrive. Packaged in plastic bag plus outer plastic postage bag. Material appears to be good quality. Back vent- no back zip. Looks fine on. The reason for the low score is that I have had to go up TWO sizes from my usual high street size (16) in order to get a tunic that fits me around the bust. Looking at the two five star reviews I note both are for small sizes. If you have large breasts you will definitely need to go up at least 2 sizes in order to get a reasonable fit. In Alexandra dresses I go up to a 22/24 in order to get a dress that doesn't burst open at the front and feel tight so at least this is a bit better! Why oh why is uniform sizing so ridiculous! I normally wear my own clothes (fortunately) but occasionally need a uniform. By all means buy this tunic if you need one but anyone with a bust should increase their size. I'm not precious about my size but it's incredibly irritating when ordering something to have no idea what size to order!


Coffin Road
Coffin Road
by Peter May
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £8.94

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyabe read, 24 Jan. 2016
This review is from: Coffin Road (Hardcover)
A man washes up on a beach and has no memory of why or how he got there. So begins the story of murder, corrupt businesses and family troubles. Slow to start (despite the dramatic first page) this book was a very good read. The wayward Karen (who I liked very much) goes in search of her father. Meanwhile a dead body is found in a remote lighthouse and the prime suspect has no memory of if or why he actually committed the crime. The story hung together well and for a "business corruption" story was believable and not far fetched as some of them have a tendency to be. The book reads very much like a TV programme and I could visualise it as such in my head- I wonder if this was a conscious decision on the part of the author. I very much enjoyed the Lewis trilogy and was very pleased to get this book courtesy of Real Readers

1.0 out of 5 stars Lasted one day, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointed. This has lasted one day. Zip broke just before finishing shift which meant I had to wear a cardigan otherwise I would have exposed myself to all and sundry. Such a shame because it was ideal length, shape and colour for what I wanted. Not impressed and won't be buying any more.

3.0 out of 5 stars A very ironic T Shirt, 21 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The reason for the three stars is that it took FOREVER to arrive. This is the second parcel that has taken an excessive amount of time to arrive but not from the same seller. Minimally packaged in a light plastic mailing bag. The T Shirt is as it looks in the picture. The material is good and the design has been printed properly. A good idea for someone who is a Hitch-Hiker fan if you are not in a hurry for the present! Quite ironic really in view of the slogan on the front
