Little Mercies
Little Mercies
by Heather Gudenkauf
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

1.0 out of 5 stars Badly written and dull. Read something else instead., 1 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Little Mercies (Paperback)
Very amateurishly written. Without giving anything away, this is an account of a modern day witch hunt, US style, after a tragic incident - accidental or otherwise. With unrealistic "characters", a hurried and wholly unconvincing ending (and not much before that to be honest) this is dull dull dull.
Don't waste your money - I'd recommend you read ALL of Gillian Flynn's books, or Tana French's, for exceptional writing and involving stories with characters who will inhabit your thoughts for some time afterwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sewing divas up to scratch as usual., 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm on a mission to collect every book these two wonder women have ever written. Their no-nonsense, practical, humorous, and 'of course!' approach to sewing is simple and clear to follow. This tome hails from the mid 1970s, but is still as relevant today. Thank-you, you wonderful women!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scandalously good!, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scandal - Season 1-2 [DVD] (DVD)
I've already bought series 1 on iTunes and watched it on my iPad on several marathon train journeys (9 hours plus each) and couldn't get over how good it was. I thought it was intelligent, adult and entertaining. Thrilled to be able to watch it again, properly this time on't telly, PLUS series 2. How good does life get!?!

4.0 out of 5 stars Would you like some cheese with that cheese?, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HOTEL - Series 1 [IMPORT] (DVD)
Looking like a 1970s escapee, with a marvellous Henry Mancini theme tune, this was actually made in the early 80s! I remember watching it then, another guilty pleasure alongside countless other slick, brash and faultlessly put together Aaron Spelling shows. At the time of writing, I am in week 4 (out of a probable 12) of complete inactivity due to foot surgery and, because of the pain-killers, I can't concentrate on anything much at present. I need eye-candy (hello James Brolin!) and something not too taxing: this fits the bill for at least some of the time. Plus, it's worth buying for Bette Davis's 'turn' in the first episode alone. Those eyes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is perfect, just what I needed to tidy up my ever expanding stock of cotton reels! Have already filled the first, so will have to order a second. Fits modern slim spools, plus the old-fashioned squat ones ('Sylko' etc). The lid is not hinged, but separate, which may be an issue for some. Very happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nifty finger protectors., 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are great little finger protectors, suitable for all forms of hand-sewing. Particularly useful for quilting, I believe, but that's not my area - yet! They're pliable enough to adjust to most finger sizes except, perhaps, really chunky ones. I've bought mine in order to try and master couture and tailoring sewing techniques, and I'm hoping these will protect against most of my blunders. Good price, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as ever...., 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My last pair of Reef Smoothy Thongs have only just given up the ghost after nearly twenty years! For the past six years I've worn them daily in the house instead of slippers - we have an open-plan, wooden staircase and I need something non-slip - and was quite upset when the fabric finally gave way. I'm really happy that I was able to get an almost identical pair after all this time. Who knew it's their 30th anniversary? They are the most comfortable flip-flop, mainly because of the fabric toe bit, and the super thick and spongy (but not too soft) sole. They call these 'mens', but they're absolutely fine for female feet. By the way, I take a UK 7, and the US 8 is just right. Oh, and the denim blue is much nicer than expected..... Good price, too! Happy feet, sigh.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Mum loves it., 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Mum is severely disabled, and finds the elasticated band invaluable; it the loofah/sponge stays on her hand and allows her thie dignity of being able to wash her face without assistance from her carers. Only a little thing, but it's made a huge difference to her. Thanks.
