4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable oars, 11 Aug. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ordered for using with an inflatable dinghy, these lightweight oars are great as they collapse down to a very small size, small enough to fit into a reasonable size sports bag or small case. The ability to make them shorter is also a bonus.

Despite how lightweight they are they feel surprisingly sturdy.

A reasonable set of oars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too slow for me, 4 Aug. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This beast of a book is very difficult to review without going over ground others have covered.

However, I found the pace far too slow, so much so that I was losing interest in what I am sure is an interesting story trying to get out. I also had difficulty with the authors style... Again, I can't put my finger on it, but it just didn't file for me.

Not my cuppa.

A good mouthwash particular for teenagers with braces - recommended by the orthodontist and rightly so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Banish sugar-laden drinks forever ...!, 2 Aug. 2014
This is a fascinating concept. Wanted to get away from sugar-laden squashes for the children in the house and introduce some interesting drinks for everyone.

This does the job. There is a clear favourite - the watermelon drink with a hint of basil and black pepper. Will continue to work through each recipe to find more favourites.

If you have a liquidiser and a fine mesh sieve, then you can get started straight away.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars FABULOUS for fruit flavoured water ..., 26 July 2014
This is a beautiful and yet very practical pot. We are using it with fruit pieces to produce flavoured water - orange, strawberry, pineapple, mango, etc. simply place the chopped up fruit in the infuser section, poor water over it, place in fridge for a few hours and then use. Top up with more water each time you use some. This product now means that there are no longer any sugar-laden drinks in the house because the children (aged 9 and 16) love these flavoured waters more (and we do too). Don't just think about buying this ... DEFINITELY buy it - it will change your life!

Update: It is now being used as a "traditional" teapot with loose leaf tea. Tea just doesn't get better than this, particularly when served in bone china 1950s cups! Yes, the glass appears thin, but it holds the heat for long enough to get two rounds of two cups from.


The Final Silence
The Final Silence
by Stuart Neville
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.08

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing is final, 11 July 2014
This review is from: The Final Silence (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although I had read Stuart Neville before (the excellent Ratlines), I had not read any of the DI Lennon series.

After reading this (the fourth I believe) I will be looking to read the previous three. The book commences with a death, and the family start to clear the house, leading to a shocking discovery after which the events of the book unravel.

The book is very readable, the characters well formed - DI Lennon is a broken man from a previous story, and not only is he trying to sort this issue out, which has left him with all sorts of problems, he also becomes the prime suspect for the main event of the book.

Brutal in places - the odd "gasp" moment, a straightforward crime thriller which evolves from the differing approaches of all the characters.

Enjoyable (but not as good as Ratlines!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Reference Tool, 26 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not a book to read cover to cover (as I have found out first hand), but a great reference tool for preparing risk registers. I would think this would be of particular interest to students, but I have also used it as a Chartered QS with 20 years experience.

If I was buying, I would think a little thin for the price, but it does cover all the appropriate points.
