ENCYCLICAL LETTER LAUDATO SI': On care for our common home: Green encyclical on the environment.
ENCYCLICAL LETTER LAUDATO SI': On care for our common home: Green encyclical on the environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for the whole planet, 20 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pope Francis writes to every person on the planet. This is the only time that a Pope has ever addressed an encyclical to all the world. He tells us that this is our world and our actions and the way we consume the earth's resources are destroying it.
There are still Climate Change deniers out there, there were people who continued to believe that the earth was flat long after it was proved to be round, perhaps they're related!
We need to read this more than once, as Citizens, as Inhabitants and as People of Faith- and we all have faith in something even if it is not God.
So, buy it, read it and spread the message!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good read from JW, 21 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
JW continues to develop the character of MD and in a very different way in her latest novel. A good plot with some interesting twists and turns. It will be fascinating to see what happens next as we approach the second world war, I just hope that we don't have to wait another 15 months to find out.

This review is from: Popular Problems (Audio CD)
Amazing album for a man in his eighties, he is now in need of the backing vocals to carry him a bit, but his lyrics are still so good.

4.0 out of 5 stars this is every bit as good, his characterisation is as sharp as ever, 22 Oct. 2014

A very enjoyable read. It shows A.M-S's versatility. I have read books in all of his series, especially enjoying the 2 series based in Edinburgh, this is every bit as good, his characterisation is as sharp as ever.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 6 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have rarely been as disappointed by a book in all my life (60 years) as this one.

If I had known (and maybe this is my fault) that it was written by an American with ONLY American examples I would never have bought it, so if you don't like Baseball, American "Football", Basketball or (Ice) Hockey definitely do not bother to read it.

In the midst of all the sporting garbage (and I AM very much a sports fan, for English sport) he makes a few good points about what should and should not be available for sale - someone's kidney for example, moral dilemmas abound.

Caveat Emptor!

Case is fine, but the magnet has already come out!

This should not happen to something which is brand new, poor workmanship.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life After Life (Paperback)
I have read all of Kate's Jackson Brodie novels and thoroughly enjoyed them.
Having read Emotionally Weird some years ago and not liked it, I thought it was time to give another non JB book a try, I wish I hadn't bothered
