the seal on this jar isnt very good and the sugar goes hard, but otherwise it is quite pretty.

really disappointed by these. I bought them for my 3year old to have in his bedroom so he could find his potty in the dark. They are not very bright so you can't see by them and they fall apart really easily and do not go back together.

buy the original cd and not the remake. This is a 2cd set with one, the remastered version of the original and the 2nd a selection of songs covered (generally very badly) by other bands. I was so disappointed with this, i have sold it already!

My First Baby Annabell Doll

4.0 out of 5 stars a traditional doll - unusual for today, 16 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My First Baby Annabell Doll (Toy)
Baby Annabell is lovely, with a soft body and a sweet looking face. A traditional dolly for a child. My only confusion with her is that the doll is aimed at children 12mths + but the toy bottle that she comes with is not suitable for children under the age of 36mths. Very odd.


The Waves (Wordsworth Classics)
The Waves (Wordsworth Classics)
by Virginia Woolf
Edition: Paperback
Price: £1.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Be intoxicated by language and waves., 16 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is hard to describe this book. It is poetry as prose. It follows five people from childhood through to adulthood, running in the same style as waves as they are lapping against a beach, as the tide comes in and goes out.

You need to concentrate at the beginning to find how the language and words pull you in, but you are subtley included and drawn in the the text and the "mysticism" it encapsulates. It is the first book by Virginia Woolf that I have read and it wont be the last.


On Cats
On Cats

Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Meiow!, 16 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On Cats (Paperback)
This book was brilliant. I loved it, the stories are enticing and page turning even for someone who isnt really a cat lover. The imagery in the writing encourages you to read on. You can picture the scenes as they happen, you can imagine the glares from the cats when she does things to them that they really don't like (taking them to the vets for instance).

i have lent this book to three people so far and i am sure they will be many more. It would be a great read for a book club and even suitable for teenagers.

Queen Camilla
Queen Camilla
by Sue Townsend
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Queen Who?, 16 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Queen Camilla (Paperback)
Hard to define this book really. It is the second Sue Townsend book I have read recently and found disappointing. There are are mild sections of amusement in the book, but no laugh out loud parts, which I would have expected. The plotline is very similar to the Queen and I, but not as good. The Royal Family have been banished to an exclusion zone by the reigning Parliament, an exclusion zone which also includes any other character that the Government feel not appropriate for the country want to live in. The residents are tagged, tattooed and hold ID cards that are checked at regular intervals. Not happy with that the Primeminister now wants to banish dogs from all existence. The ending seems hurried and, well odd.

The plotline isnt particularly good, it is not a page turner and i found it boring to say the least. I read to the end but only out of curiosity to see if, at any stage it got better, it doesnt. Im not sure who I would recommend it to if I had to, probably no one, even as a holiday read, there isnt enough in it for a book club to discuss, other than has Sue Townsend lost it since the demise of Adrian Mole?


Hell's Gate (Mollel 2)
Hell's Gate (Mollel 2)
by Richard Crompton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Just buy a Guide Book!, 28 May 2015
This review is from: Hell's Gate (Mollel 2) (Paperback)
Detective Mollel has been stationed in a beaten-up town on the edge of Hell's Gate National Park. He hasn't been there long before he senses his new colleagues might have something to hide. Hells Gate is the second of the Massai detective Mollel series, and too be fair to the author I think you will benefit from reading “The Honey Guide” to fully appreciate this novel.
The description of the AFraican countryside is stunning and graphic, there are times where you can feel yourself there, the dust running over your feet and the heat of the midday sun hot upon your face. Even the evening scenery of the novel gives you shivers with a clear hint of greed and sheer evil. But, there is nothing of that kind for Mollel. Every now and again you get an inside glimpse into his background as a Massai and the life he would have lived, but no more.
Hells Gate as a storyline is quite confusing. There are bits of story dotted in amongst other story lines within the book and although some of them add up and have an ending there are other bits I am still wondering about. Possibly they are waiting for the next Mollel novel to complete them. Mollel at one stage (who is, we have been told at the beginning of the book, well out of favour with the Nairobi Police Force) is given an “initiation” test by his new colleagues, this is very creepy, the dust is there the evil in voices is there, the reader all ready to find out what happens…and then, oh, we’ve moved on. I am not inclined to go and look for The Honey Guide (Mollel 1) and wont be holding my breath for the publication of Mollel 3.
There is not much in the book for a reading group to benefit from, there isn’t an awful lot to talk about in the sense of a crime novel. They would perhaps be better looking through a Guide to Kenya.
