1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money for something else, 2 July 2014
Utterly tedious and without doubt the worst Doctor Who tie-in I've ever owned. There are no highlights - I wish I could give 0 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says, 5 Nov. 2009
When I needed to use a Dell Optiplex ( DVI Socket ) with a VGA-compatible monitor lead ( VGA plug ) this did the interface perfectly and still does !

Neat, reasonably unobtrusive and not too expensive

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent advice from a real Allotmenter, 5 Nov. 2009
I came to this book from the author's excellent allotment website and found much of the same kind of real-world advice on the site and in this book.

It is one of the most thumbed gardening books I have


Escape from Hell
Escape from Hell
by Larry Niven
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars One more trip, 3 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Escape from Hell (Hardcover)
For anyone who has read Niven and Pournelle's Inferno this book will cover familiar territory. This is a great page turner covering the later exploits of Allen Carpenter ex-author and now guide to potential escapees from Hell. It follows the familiar route map of Dante's Hell but with enough twists to keep it fresh and some stunning conceits make it a worthy adjunct to the earlier volume


RHS Grow Your Own: Fruit (Royal Horticultural Society Grow Your Own)
RHS Grow Your Own: Fruit (Royal Horticultural Society Grow Your Own)

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good guide, 1 Mar. 2009
If you know and like Carol Klein's Grow Your Own Veg (Rhs) then this new book is reasonably familiar territory. The main differences are that this does not (yet) have a TV series tie-in and a lot more of the text reads dryly as if it was written by earnest people from the RHS.

It is a good introduction - It loses 1 star from me as it does omit Rhubarb !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 23 Mar. 2008
This is perhaps the most accessible of the Studio Ghibli productions for the UK audience ( closely followed by Kiki's Delivery Service )

Unlike "Spirited Away" ( with it's Japanese bath houses and radish spirits ) this has a more british edwardian or european feel for the first half before the bombing sequences

Yes there are gaps in the back story and it does vary from the original book but on its own merits this is a masterpiece
