5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product!, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i cannot recommend this product enough, it seriously helps with weight loss along with a a good routine in the gym. in the first month of taking these i lost 6 pound along with good exercise.

i did originally wonder if they would make me feel a little weird after speaking with a few friends but i didnt experience anything like that. will definitely be buying these again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i am rather obsessed with Italy and its history, so having come back from a month long trip to northern Italy in October last year i had a list of many books i wanted to read to learn more.

i was very much looking forward to this book, having seen it on sale in Museo Opera right next to Santa Maria del Fiore so couldnt wait to get back home to read it. It is really an outstanding read, full of amazing facts about the cathedral and the people involved.

i especially like the story about the 'fat carpenter' and the trick played on him by Filippo!

would recommend this book to anyone!


Somme Mud
Somme Mud

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 21 Feb 2012
This review is from: Somme Mud (Paperback)
this is literally one of the best books ive ever read... all the tales of the hardship of WWI... the mud, the death, constant harrowing times in the frontline, but also the humour and friendship that occurs between soldiers.

would recommend this to anyone, thoroughly enjoyed it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 12 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
am currently about 300 pages into this book and i must say im absolutely hooked! the last book was a bit flat i thought, so i was hoping this one would be better... and i wasnt disappointed!

the 2 main characters of the book so far Kublai & Hulegu, coupled with Mongke & Guyuk are very well written. Even with Batu at the start, even though only brief, the detail that the author goes into is just great.

the research gone into this book much have been immense, with locations ranging from Middle East, Russia, Mongolia and China all described in minute detail and really lets your imagination run wild with how the locations would have looked like.

all in all, i really cant recommend this book enough... absolutely amazing!!

5.0 out of 5 stars another classic, 25 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
am only 70 pages in to this book so far but already know that this is going to be another classic from Conn Iggulden. the fight for power is described very well indeed and the descriptions of Karakorum transport you right there.

you do kind of feel there is something missing in the books as there isnt the massive character of Genghis but is still very interesting as the other characters are built up.
cant wait to read more of the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars a great read!, 25 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
after reading Livys first book i was very much looking forward to this one and it didnt disappoint. pretty much every part of the book is great, and the detail he goes into in describing events, people or towns is just amazing.

it is a travesty that the rest of the books he wrote didnt make it through time!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!, 25 Sep 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
as a huge fan of F1 i have been waiting for this game to come out for months now and after having playing for a few hours already, it is an amazing game. the details of the scenery, cars and even the sounds of the engines are all great.
i also love the fact you have to start off at a lower team to build up a good career, very good part of the game as it makes you a better driver as you move up the ladder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Father Of History, 8 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this book is a classic! the father of history delivers a steady flow of fascinating tales full of action and intrigue... and also great little facts about certain people or places... an all round amazing piece of work that paved the way for later historians to base their works on.

thank you Herodotus
