4.0 out of 5 stars Hikers will love this and mere mortals will believe that BB is mad to try this incredible "walk", 18 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting but it made me feel tired just reading it. Loved the ironic title and the comic antics of his friend who
accompanied him on the walk.

5.0 out of 5 stars A riveting read, 18 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing and dystopian view of the world seen through the eyes of the handmaid. A riveting read - I could not put it down and was praying for a happy end. A must for any book lover.


The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat: Picador Classic
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat: Picador Classic
Price: £4.72

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of sadness and hope, 18 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very interesting read with tales that intrigue about aspects of the brain that you may never have considered.
Some jargon but is mostly written in simple language that most will understand. Written by the same doctor who wrote "Awakenings" - also a film it is full of sadness and hope. A good read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to read even for physicists and other scientists, 22 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a present for my physicist husband who is finding it very difficult. The terminology is difficult to
understand and perhaps when next published might contain a glossary of terms.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of detail, 8 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rembrandt's Eyes (Paperback)
Heavy going at times - a lot of background but I was hoping to learn more about the man and his family and
motivation to paint.

5 Days in May: The Coalition and Beyond
5 Days in May: The Coalition and Beyond
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Clegg a natural conservative., 25 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a mighty tome but packed full of interesting facts and information. Now I am thoroughly convinced of Nick Glegg's
right wing credentials. Adonis puts forward convincing arguments that Clegg intended to join with the conservatives all
along and were much taken with Osbone's economic policies. A fascinating read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Did he kill the princes?, 25 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was hoping to come to some conclusion about Richard's motives in taking the crown. This analysis went some way
towards this. Did he kill the princes? This book will not come to any conclusion probably because the evidence is
not there either way.

If you want to read about the detail of battles there is plenty to keep your interest..

3.0 out of 5 stars Erudite, 25 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great deal of research has gone into this erudite book but too much detail for me. I would also have liked more
information on the personalities or at least some of them.
