5.0 out of 5 stars Stayed with me, 7 Sep 2013

This review is from: The Night Rainbow (Kindle Edition)
I really liked this book - it's cleverly written and I honestly didn't see the twist in the tail coming. Poignantly written with wonderful characterisation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says in the blurb, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We relied on a door knocker for a while when our old doorbell stopped working, but it's good to have a doorbell back. The fact that it's powered from a socket means that it never stops working because the batteries have died (like the old one did). Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars You know where you are with a Rough Guide, 5 Sep 2013

I never go away without a Rough Guide. The pocket guides are perfect for short weekends away where you don't want to lug a normal sized Rough Guide around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous little camera, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted a camera that was smaller and lighter than my 6D, for holiday photography. This camera's brilliant; apart from the fact that it's a cropped sensor it's not really any different from the 6D in what I can do with it, and picture quality. Have to say though that I love the touch screen - it makes changing shutter speed, aperture, ISO, shooting priorities etc really easy. One day all DSLRs will have these features. I believe the 100D has won awards, and rightly so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I ordered, 5 Sep 2013

I'd lost the original so needed a replacement, and this was perfect. Have since found the original, but isn't that always the way?

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice little book, a real page-turner, 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book - got drawn into the story and the characters and it kept me pleasantly entertained for a couple of evenings. Nicely written with a good flow and easy interaction between the main characters.

Grammatically, the book annoyed me a little - every 'could have' was a 'could've', every 'might have' was a 'might've', every 'would have' was a 'would've' .. I think you get the picture. (I half expected a wouldn't've). I was surprised also that the writer seemed not to know the difference between practice and practise, or that a character pores over paperwork, not pours.

I appreciate that these literary hiccups won't grate with everyone, also that I'm a smidge pedantic. That said, the book is a pleasant read and it certainly held my attention and kept me turning the pages.

I wanted a bedside fan that was really quiet - no motor noise, just the white noise of the air whizzing round. This is perfect - the airflow is just right and it's so quiet! The added plus is that it looks so good too. Very happy with my purchase and several steps up from the cheapie I was using before.

Perfect for the 100D - all the attributes of a DSLR but so small! The lens is great - looking forward to using it properly this weekend.
