The Woman in White (Clothbound Classics)
The Woman in White (Clothbound Classics)
by Wilkie Collins
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 12.23

5.0 out of 5 stars a classic thriller, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The misfortunes and plot, this is a good thriller just set in a different time. It reads really well, not too stiff or old fashioned.


Celestron Moon Filter
Celestron Moon Filter

4.0 out of 5 stars basic need if you want to observe the moon, but you need to some clean up afterwards on the image, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Celestron Moon Filter (Camera)
The filter is a basic need if you want to observe the Moon, it is simple as that, as our Moon is simply to close by and too bright to observe with a telescope without filter. But ooh ... the green hue the filter causes on photos. It makes the Moon look like cheese that has been lying in the back of the fridge for the last 2 years :)
Fear not, a good photo program like Photoshop or similar will allow you to remove this green hue and you will have some nice images of the Moon.


Stellar Evolution and Nucleosynthesis
Stellar Evolution and Nucleosynthesis
by Sean G. Ryan
Edition: Paperback
Price: 33.14

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book - very indepth but explained very clearly, 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This certainly no book for beginners in astronomy. You would need a good understanding of the working of stars and their composition to follow this. A good understanding of basic Physics and Maths as well.
However the book explains all very clearly, so even the page long equations are laid out step by step to follow. Questions throughout the book have the answers in the back. As with all OU books, good value for money.

1.0 out of 5 stars oh my ... I thought the 50's were over?, 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The recipes in here are well outdated, and the vinegar solution ... oh my, tried it for a bit bit feared ending up with a stomach ulcer. I doubt any medical thought went into this at all! Not good, this little book could do more damage than good to chronic sufferers.


Happy Pet Chinchilla Coco Fun
Happy Pet Chinchilla Coco Fun
Price: 4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours/days/weeks of fun, 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My 2 chinchillas are destroyers, most toys last less than 24 hours as they are designed for the less destructive guinea pigs and other smaller rodents, but my chins take their chewing and destroying passionately. So this toy is brilliant, the straw bits are gone within a day or 2 but the wooden cubes and coconut shells keep them busy for days. I can hear them have a go at it all the way upstairs at night ... so warning if you live with your chins in a small flat/betsit be ready to stay awake :)


Treating Arthritis Exercise Book: Reissue
Treating Arthritis Exercise Book: Reissue
by Margaret Hills
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.19

1.0 out of 5 stars simple exercises ... you can get for free on the web these days, 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
dont spend money on this as most arthritis websites have these exercises for free online. So though good exercises the price for the book is not in comparison with what you get. And as with most chronic sufferers, money is tight, no need to get ripped off any further.


Free Fall: A Sniper's Story from Chechnya
Free Fall: A Sniper's Story from Chechnya
by Nicolai Lilin
Edition: Paperback
Price: 9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars not for the faint hearted, 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with most Russian war accounts this is not for the faint hearted. Nothing is sugar coated here .... I mean nothing.

As to if it is true or not ... well the overall seems to match with other war accounts from Russian soldiers, are the units, places etc 100% accurate ... they rarely are in these types of books for various reasons (memory, protecting self/others etc.) that does not mean that the whole thing is fiction.


Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea - Original Version
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea - Original Version
by Jules Verne
Edition: Paperback
Price: 12.43

5.0 out of 5 stars it's a classic, 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this book as a kid, so when I came accross it I had to reread again, at this point they have the nice deluxe binding from Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classic Collection, so I would recommend that one as it just looks nicer on the outside.

But the story is a classic, from start to end, and you dont feel that it is over 100 years ago that it was written it still reads well.


The Emergence of Russia 750-1200 (Longman History of Russia)
The Emergence of Russia 750-1200 (Longman History of Russia)
by Simon Franklin
Edition: Paperback
Price: 31.48

3.0 out of 5 stars contents is good, quality of print not so much, 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The contents is very good, so much more detail than any history book out there on medieval Russia, as all books seem to start in the 1800's as if the country just sprung out of the blue at that point.

But oh the quality of the print, it is soo bad it gives me a headache if reading more than a few pages in one go. Which is a shame as otherwise this bookd would have gotten 5 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars book is ok, website looks for more money ..., 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is great and it comes with a note that there is a website with exta little games etc... and there is, it all looks really good until you get to chapter 4 on the website and they block the contents and start asking you for 15 dollars a month. What a rip off!
