Is Shame Necessary?: New Uses for an Old Tool
Is Shame Necessary?: New Uses for an Old Tool
by Jennifer Jacquet
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.39

3.0 out of 5 stars Answer to the title - not (yet) convinced, 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Some interesting ideas but not sufficient explanation of how "shame" is being used here. Not an easy read and hard to escape the feeling that there is not much to be said here that isn't said elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best quality and value, 11 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best tech purchase I've ever made. 50% better then the original Kindle Fire, now with amazing graphics, better performance all round, most apps greatly improved, better range of apps available, I could go on for ages. Love it. The deal I got for 32gbp capacity was fantastic - worth watching for short-term reductions. You are probably just underestimating how much you will use this device so buy all the capacity you can afford.

Just Send Me Word: A True Story of Love and Survival in the Gulag

4.0 out of 5 stars Hope springs eternal, 3 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I expected this to be predominantly the letters between Svetlana and Lev. In fact Figes supplements short extracts from the letters with explanatory background. This works well and produces a powerful, continuous narrative. Reading of the personal suffering, doubts and fears makes it easier to reflect on how you would cope and how you would work to make a relationship survive such punishment and challenge to hope. Figes writes in a plain, passionless style, letting the characters and events speak for themselves. The human spirit survives another period of horrors. We are a great species but sometimes our government's seem to be taken over by something else.


Strange Glory: A life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Strange Glory: A life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer
by Charles Marsh
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.54

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitive and gripping, 3 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I had some knowledge of Bonhoeffer's life and witness but had never before read an extended biography. This is a great place to start (and maybe finish). This is not a difficult read. Even the 50-odd pages of notes don't need to hold up the flow. Here is the man, his thought, his friends and his context. The story is meticulously told with photographs and extracts from Bonhoeffer's writings, including his poetry, which merits further investigation. Thoroughly worth reading - a life of a saint whose death was probably not as quick as the widely accepted version has it. The detail is harrowing, made worse by how nearly it could have been avoided with the end of the war coming so soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brightly shines the kitchen light, 3 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Never tried an LED light before. Although this is the GU10 fitting of all my kitchen lights, this bulb was quite difficult to fit. Once it was in place it was secure and sheds a good warm light, matching the other halogen bulbs well. I had not realised that the LED lights don't get warm - a mixed set of LED and halogen could be quite dangerous if you were switching bulbs about after use. I'm very impressed and will definitely be replacing the halogen bulbs with LED as they need it. Just hope the stated longevity materialises to make up for the price differentlial.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a cable!, 3 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nothing special. The cable is of reasonable quality with less protection from abrasion and other damage than some. The performance is fine working between a netbook and an HD TV. The additional length is very convenient, especially if you have a large TV screen and don't want to sit too close.
