Agatha Raisin and the Christmas Crumble (short story)
Agatha Raisin and the Christmas Crumble (short story)
Price: £2.05

4.0 out of 5 stars Agatha does good!, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can't beat Mavis Beacon for an easy and instantly gratifying read. I have read most of the Agatha Raisin series and have been known to chuckle aloud wherever I might be. This short but entertaining read is about our Agatha taking pity on them old folks at Christmas with fairly predictable results but which do not detract from the enjoyment of the story. Ms Beacon has a great ability to bring the words to life and off the page enabling the reader to immediately visualise the scenes with great colour and definition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was my first Lee Child read and what an enjoyable, exciting and well written thriller it is! It has a good plot and holds the reader's interest throughout. I have since read the next two books and can only say I am still enjoying the adventures of Jack Reacher and will no doubt read all the books in the series. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 28 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is what it is and does the job. I chose this because it is so easy to 'stick' to your wall. Note that it will only stick to tiles and not any surface. I have a few of these 'sucker' products of my bathroom but they can also go in the kitchen to hold a variety of things. I prefer these to other similar items which have a more complex 'sucker' fitting as have had negative experiences with them plus the fittings are huge whereas these are far more discreet. Give it a try...


Fifty Shades Trilogy: Fifty Shades of Grey / Fifty Shades Darker / Fifty Shades Freed
Fifty Shades Trilogy: Fifty Shades of Grey / Fifty Shades Darker / Fifty Shades Freed

3.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish but..., 28 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thought the writing of this was not brilliant but expected that because of the type of book it is. Some of the character traits were inconsistent and I found myself questioning some of the actions and decisions taken by them. However couldn't put it down and no not for what you may think are obvious reasons! The author has been clever. The story line is weak but she grabs the (female) reader certainly. This is a story of the working girl being whisked off her feet by a wealthy good looking man...images of Pretty Woman...and of course he needs her but at the same time can be that 'cave man' type....what more does a girl need!

3.0 out of 5 stars Be careful!, 24 Feb 2013
Received in good time. Not quite what I was expecting quality wise but acceptable. It will protect your iPad well. Just be careful this item is NOT suitable for the latest iPad (4) as the camera is covered by the cover so you can't take photos! I have decided to keep the product as it will do me for now but others may be very frustrated and have to send it back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adds a layer of comfort..., 11 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This throw was delivered promptly and is a great size. It really does cover a large sofa unlike so many! I would question the use of the word 'Luxury' in the advertising but then it all depends on your own definition of that word. It does not have the shiney, light, quality which I perceived from the picture but this would not stop me ordering another one as it's actually thick and cosy and gives the sofa an extra layer of comfort. I just wish they did this throw in more colour options!

5.0 out of 5 stars A step into the past, 11 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really enjoyed reading this selection of the Diaries. Great if you like history and especially if you know London well, particularly the City and along the Thames. It gives a wonderful insight into how people lived back in the day along with important moments of history decsribed and perceived by a man of the time in a way that brings everything to life, you can almost feel lke you are there walking the streets alongside him. Want to read all his Diaries now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for all, 11 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Good Study Guide (Paperback)
Got this recently as a returner to study. Very clear layout and easy to read. Great to dip into the various chapters as and when needed. Some great tips on taking notes etc, you think you know how and then he comes up with something you hadn't thought of! A good book to keep on the bookshelf as you never know when you or a family member will need it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good and useful read, 24 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
even if you already know about buying abroad this is a goodbook to have on the shelf, if you know nothing then it's a definite 'must have'. The content is set out very plainly and is very easy to read. You can dip into it or read from cover to cover. As somone who knows a little more than the novice about buying property abroad I found it a useful 'reminder' of what to look for and why.
