INVASION USA - Boxed Set - Set II
Price: 6.37

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining read., 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good, entertaining middle and end to the 4 book series. The series has had some technical errors in it which do irritate but overall a good story with plenty of content and action.
On the back of this series I am now reading the authors other series America One.
I would not hesitate to recommend people to read Invasion USA.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable read., 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good, gripping story that once into was hard to put down. Frighteningly realistic given China's ambitions.
Its was also nice to have a complete story in one volume and not find you are beginning a "Star Trek Voyager" series that some SF authors are selling on Amazon at present. Unfortunately most of them run out of ideas by volume 4 or so.
Good work. I will look for more by this author.

An excellent start to this series. Good storyline and a believable subject.
The authors technical knowledge is good and the book was very readable and left you looking forward to the next one.


The Sky Beyond (Aviator's Bookshelf)
The Sky Beyond (Aviator's Bookshelf)
by Sir Gordon Taylor
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sky Beyond, 2 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was loaned this book by a friend and enjoyed it so much I bought a copy.
It is a superbly written book of incredible flying exploits that laid the foundations for the way we fly today.
Some of the risks taken were horrendous and it makes the book an exiting, stimulating and very enjoyable read.
It is very expensive in the UK and I ordered my copy from the USA but it is great value at whatever price.


George Foreman 14685 Family Removable Plates Grill - 4-Portion - Black
George Foreman 14685 Family Removable Plates Grill - 4-Portion - Black
Price: 44.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Grill - good value for money, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This grill replaces an earlier model that had lost its non stick.
It takes a few minutes to warm up but after that cooks really well.
I have cooked steaks, bangers and burgers and also toasted sandwiches, all were cooked fine.
Also on this model I have not had any "leakage" of fat down the legs - it all goes into the tray. Maybe they have listened to earlier feedback...
Super easy to clean, just remove and put in the bowl!! I dont want to risk putting the plates in the dishwasher
but that just my preference.
All in all I am delighted with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book., 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read other books about the Pacific war but not one that is on such a personal level. Iwo Jima was an awful and horrific ordeal for the Marines and Japanese who took part and this book manages to convey that to the reader, even though I have no experience of such ordeals. If you are into military history then I recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable SF, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have now read books 1 and 2 and am halfway through book 3.
A very good, entertaining read and an excellent story. The good thing about this is it is a finite story and not like some of the Kindle authors who write book after book and then run out of ideas.
I would recommend this trilogy to any SF fan.
