5.0 out of 5 stars Super, practical basket, 3 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This basket arrived far quicker than the schedule, well packed. It is great - just the right size to hols plenty of logs but not take up lots of floor space. The lining is very helpful to avoid mess. The sides are straight, which is so practical for packing the logs in. Other baskets I've had have been tapered so less easy. It is very robust and attractive and I love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars An absorbing read, 18 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This very detailed and thoroughly researched story of an area of France around Le Chambon sur Lignon during the Second World War is extremely interesting. To read what real individuals did and sacrificed is very moving, and reminds one of what it was like to live in both occupied and unoccupied France at that time. It is well written and objective - neither a dry history nor a page-turning novelette. The people do come alive though and the book follows their fates after the war...if indeed they were still alive by then.

3.0 out of 5 stars Less good than her other novels., 14 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sunrise (Kindle Edition)
This is a novel set in the era of the troubles in Famagusta in Cyprus in the 70s. It is similar to her other novels from that point of view. I found this less convincing though and the characters not very rounded. It holds the attention but is somehow a bit too pat and predictable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Incorrect dimensions given, 10 Oct 2014

Beware the stated dimensions. I needed an extra long seat for our loo so chose this as it said the depth is 48cm. It is not, it's only 40cm. That said, the return and refund were dealt with promptly.

4.0 out of 5 stars A helpful read, 20 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i read this because Virginia Ironside alluded to it in her Book "You'll get over it". Having recently lost my father, I have been reading a few such books. This was brief and did not try to offer advice (which I appreciated). I also appreciated reading about some of his feelings - some a bit odd - that nevertheless chimed in with my own, making me understand a bit more about how grief affects us. I therefore found it a comfort to read.

I wanted raffia mats for better protection of the table without the hot plates sticking to them, as happens with other types. These are just the right size, clean easily and look smart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read for readers, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed both dimensions of this book: the autobiography itself of a man with an egalitarian spirit and the ongoing references to works of literature from which he quotes to exemplify his view of them. I feel as if I will want to go back to it simply to list all the books for which he has given me a taste.
