New Red Fashion British UK Flag union jack Badge Chain Shoulder clutch Evening Party bag
New Red Fashion British UK Flag union jack Badge Chain Shoulder clutch Evening Party bag

4.0 out of 5 stars Carry the flag!, 8 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given the cost of this product I was expecting something a bit tacky but was pleasantly surprised. I had intended it as a gift for my 10 year old niece but liked it so much I kept it for myself - I have bought her something else! Nicely made and feels good even though it's synthetic. A bargain!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars underwhelmed!!!, 8 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gangsters Wives (Kindle Edition)
If you were expecting this to be as readable as Martina Cole you will be very disappointed. Characterisation not bad but the plot line is predictable and simplistic. An afternoon's read by the pool at very best!

2.0 out of 5 stars Far from perfect!, 18 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I should have known from the price that I would be disappointed! Cheap, tacky and unattractive. Also it is impossible to pick up without all the charms falling off. Ok if you are 10 years old or a real mini fanatic. There are better ways to celebrate the Olympics!!!


Killer Country: A Cape Town thriller
Killer Country: A Cape Town thriller

4.0 out of 5 stars The real Cape Town?, 18 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As usual with trilogies I read the second book after the third but this was not a huge problem as the novels are quite capable of standing alone. I like the way Mike Nicol paints a picture of his characters. Within the very first chapter you have a picture of everyone, in your head - he even manages to denote ethnic origin without recourse to PC labeling or racist labeling. If you have been to Cape Town and know it fairly well you will love every minute has you will know where every bit of action takes place (and there's plenty of action). If you have never been to Cape Town it's not a bad story but you won't get much out of it. Unlike Roger Smith, reading Mike Nicol will not put you off visiting South Africa. It may even make you want to see the beautiful beaches and of course Table Mountain, and mix with the rich ethnic mix of people.


Planet Barbecue!
Planet Barbecue!
by Steven Raichlen
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.34

4.0 out of 5 stars A master of barbeque!, 4 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Planet Barbecue! (Paperback)
If you buy this book you will know everything there is to know about about cooking over flames. I think Steven Raichlen covers every country in the world and every style of flame cooking. Even if you are an experienced outdoor cook, you will learn something new. Even if you will never cook outdoors it's a good read. If I have one criticism (and it's not really a fair one!) it's too American. Perhaps when Mr Raichlen realises he has such a fan-base in Europe he will tailor his writing accordingly and use both American and European names for measures and recipe items.

Considering the price, this is a very good value product. It feels absolutely lovely and is far too nice to let children anywhere near it. It is well made and represents a very good fun souvenir of the Jubilee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attractive nails at last!, 27 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is marvelous! Having suffered for years from brittle, splitting nails at last I have hands that I don't have to hide. My doctor told me I would have to put up with the nail problem as it was caused by medication which I must take forever. Despite this I have tried dozens of products over the last two years none of which worked. After only a few days of using Flexitol there is a distinct improvement. I haven't had one broken or peeled nail and my nails are pinker and healthier looking. Also my cuticles can be pushed back without tearing. Brilliant!!!!!

Very good characterisation - Mike Nicol really paints a picture both of the people and places. If you know and love Cape Town it is even better. Not quite as gutsy as Roger Smith but a very good read.

2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for!, 3 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cute but looks cheap and a bit tacky. The description does not make it absolutely clear that it is not genuine Pandora but I suppose, being realistic, the price is a pretty good indicator. OK if you are a dog-loving Pandora bracelet owner!!!


Mixed Blood

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark!, 1 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mixed Blood (Kindle Edition)
A very dark novel, well written with the strong characterisation that Roger Smith is good at. He really knows South Africa's underbelly! Don't let it put you off visiting - it's like everywhere else in the world - You will find trouble if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time.
