A Gift from Bob: How a Street Cat Helped One Man Learn the Meaning of Christmas

Another tale by James and his furry companion Bob. I am a huge fan of both of them and may even be a bit biased. He recalls one particular cold Christmas and how Bob always encouraged James, being always by his side. But if you want to know any more you will have to read it.

Have just finished reading this book and I loved it. It is a piece of social history and in my opinion this should be a prescribed text book in schools. As I used to live in Hammersmith and also got married in 1968 at Hammersmith Register Office like the author I found I could relate even more to the book. I shed a few tears and just couldn't put it down. It's a most marvellous book of Alan Johnson's early life full of humility, very well written and I definitely give it 5 stars. Thank you Alan Johnson for this wonderful read.

I have really enjoyed this book. Another good yarn by C.J. Sansom. I found it hard to put it down and I was burning the candle at both ends. Any lover of C.J.Sansom's 'Shardlake Series' will not be disappointed and I would recommend it. Good read!

I have now read all the books. They are full of horrors, some characters are rather endearing like Jon and Sansa and one wants to know what happens to them. I will not give the end away but it seems to me there will be another book. I must also say that I found it rather turgid at times but kept persevering. There is a lot of scheming and plotting and incredible violence and not unlike the politics of today.

I find it very useful, have been using it for sometime and it definitely helps tone my hips and reduces my waistline. Would recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory, 25 Aug 2014
This review is from: The Red Queen (Kindle Edition)
I must say I expected a bit more from this book. The story of Margaret Beaufort, the heiress to the red rose of Lancaster is narrated in the voice of Margaret herself. She is a very pious child and grows into an even more devout person. Married at a very young age of 12 and almost dying in childbirth she produces a son, a Tudor,and from then on her only aim in life is for her son to become king. Her wish did come true after many years of bloody battles between the House of York and Lancaster. I disliked her, she seems to be so wrapped up in her devotion to God. Philippa Gregory no doubt did a lot of research for this book but apart from historical facts she also throws in some romance between Margaret and her brother in law Jasper Tudor, which I find rather unbelievable but maybe many readers will like that. So, in fact Margaret Beaufort founded the Tudor dynasty, her son Henry became Henry the seventh.

What a great film, I have read the book first and then bought the DVD. Steven Coogan stands out in the role of Martin Sixsmith. It definitely deserves 5 stars, have enjoyed it very much even though it is a very dark story but it had to be told.
