Mindbender (Sovereign of the Seven Isles Book 3)
Mindbender (Sovereign of the Seven Isles Book 3)
Price: £1.97

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story but not the greatest writing., 28 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a shame that a really good story is spoilt at times by repetitive and unimaginative writing. If the characters have another meal that is "Well prepared" I will scream. The details of battles etc are sometimes repetitive and certainly overlong! All that having been said I think the characters are very engaging and up to now the story extremely entertaining! I shall certainly read the next in the series.

As with volume one a cracking good story with interesting characters. However the writing is getting worryingly repetitive. Still enjoyable though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, 15 Oct 2014

This review is from: Past Present & Future (Audio CD)
Probably to be judged as his best studio album overall. A lot of people describe it as their favourite. I was simply updating from vinyl. A great introduction to Al's work if you don't go for an anthology.


Thinblade (Sovereign of the Seven Isles Book 1)
Thinblade (Sovereign of the Seven Isles Book 1)
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A good start to a fun fantasy series, 12 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good start to a fun fantasy series. The writing is at times clumsy and a bit repetitive but it's a ripping good yarn. The only plot fault is that he has invented magical solutions to every problem as he goes along, which feels a bit of a cheat!

A really well chosen compilation, with the added bonus of the excellent live version of Nostradamus.

A much better conclusion than volume 2. The change of central character really worked quite well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories, 5 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Original Album Series (Audio CD)
This brings back so many memories of the late 60's and early 70's for me. All that it promised to be. Seeing a live concert last week and these 5 CD's have encouraged me to replenish my later Al Stwart collection

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid compilation, 4 Feb 2014

Enjoyed the collection. Always difficult in terms of this type of music which I love to get the mix right when so many different styles of band involved, but overall very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably one of the greatest recipe books, surpassed only by a couple of her own, ie French Provencale cookery, 1 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is little point , in me writing another revue of Elizabeth David. She puts down the most amazing and totally workable recipes, and accompanoies this with the eloquence of a sophisticated and intelloigent author. She is in short the first laady of cookery books and I doubt will evr be surpassed.
