David Copperfield
David Copperfield
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Semi Autobiographical Novel, 13 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: David Copperfield (Kindle Edition)
This is the complete text of the Dickens novel. The characters are well known and much loved. As in many of Dickens novels there is an episodic feel reflecting it's initial launch as a weekly supplement. It is also criticised for plot irregularities, anti Semitism and treatment of the female characters. Irrespective of these issues this is a well written tale, a moral tale, and a good read. Enjoy.

Third installment in the paper magician series. Ceony, the heroine, has developed greater powers. The pattern is similar to the previous two books; threat that only the heroine can resolve, attitude, stuffy officials and a linear story line where everything works out in the end. You might read into this review that I was starting to tire of the series, you're right. Having said that, it was an easy read, best read in sequence and went along at a reasonable pace.

A short easy read that's taken along at a good pace. The main characters are reasonably well realised. It's worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but not perfect, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've not yet had this long enough to comment on durability. It was bought to hold the multiple cards that I've managed to accumulate. It dies that well but is still tight enough to make access difficult. The zipped compartment is too tight when all my cards are in to hold anything but high value bank notes (I wish).

The material is substantial and inspires confidence. Delivery time was better than advertised. Colour is a good match to the description. I'm not a fan of press stud fasteners, I have doubts about their longevity!

Other than the doubts detailed above it's doing the job I bought it for and doing it well.

This review is from: Adaptil Diffuser 48ml (Misc.)
This was delivered promptly and it was as advertised. How well it worked with my very nervous dog, how well it will work with another dog is not predictable. I was satisfied, I felt that it helped and I will be getting the refill.

This is the fifth installment in the P C Peter Grant series and contains the same elements as before; police procedure, fae, magic. The author keeps it moving along at a steady pace. Those people who have enjoyed the previous novels will enjoy this one. Definitely recommend that this should be read in sequence as character developments follow on from the previous books.

Enjoy.


Rivers of London (PC Peter Grant Book Book 1)
Rivers of London (PC Peter Grant Book Book 1)
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a try, 10 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed this book to the extent that I've now read the first three in the series.

Reasonably well written and keeps up a lively pace. The main characters are sufficiently well developed fit the reader to develop a connection.

Plot Spoilers

OK, magic is real and 'gods' exist. Our hero is inducted into the small, secretive branch of the Met that polices supernatural events. In this case the villain of the piece is a ghost ego is intent on following the script of a Punch & Judy show and unleashing havoc on London. Think Harry Potter for an adult audience and you're not a million miles from this book.

It's an undemanding read, suspend your disbelief and enjoy


Peacemakers (Peacemaker Origins Book 1)

2.0 out of 5 stars Disjointed, 14 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't finish this book and that is the main reason for the star rating. The writing isn't particularly bad, or good. The characterisation and story line are nothing special, global network of manipulative villains who have interfered with international politics to further their ends.

The book jumps about trying to follow several threads. This makes the plot very disjointed and, in my opinion, doesn't work in this case.

It might be to your taste, this time round it wasn't to mine. Apologies to the author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Optimistic Sizing, 26 May 2015

Delivery & packaging were fine. Price is good but the shoes were a narrow fit and on the snug side. Order larger than you need!
