Bayer Design Doll`s Stroller (Blue)

5.0 out of 5 stars GRAN DAUGHTER'S DELIGHT, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my granddaughter aged one and a half. She loves it and charges round with her teddy and doll in it - when she can get it away from her big (four year old) brother. Strong and easy for the kids to push and maneuver. A good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER TAART TRIUMPH, 5 Jun 2014

This review is from: The Goldfinch (Kindle Edition)
Donna Taart's books are always different and in some ways challenging to read but the writing is of such a high caliber that the reader is held enthralled even when there is no obvious plot line. I felt that in one or two places the book perhaps spent too long on a particular stage or situation in the unfolding story but the characterisation makes the people come alive and at the end I was just left in awe of the writer's skill in producing such a gripping novel on what seems initially a rather unpromising theme.

5.0 out of 5 stars TIME SHIFT WHODUNIT, 5 Jun 2014

This review is from: The Villa Triste (Kindle Edition)
I loved this. Not read any Lucretia Grindle before but I found this gripping and entirely satisfying with its time shift between WWII and modern times. Very believable with a strong sense of place and history.

This review is from: Irish Twins (Kindle Edition)
As ever with Susan Hill, beautifully written and intriguing story. It doesn't tie up all the loose ends but for me that is part of what a short story is all about.

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD PRODUCT, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does what it says and protects the phone well with the added advantage of not obscuring the rather smart red phone back. As always, getting the screen protector on is a bit of a fiddle and my wife managed to put on two film protectors at once but we sorted it out in the end. Ordinary mortals certainly need three protectors to allow for getting it wrong a couple of times but them we probably didn't really pay enough attention to the instructions. Recommended product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Readable, 15 April 2014

Intriguing detective story which has some interesting twists. Overuse of bad language in places looks more like an attempt to be "modern" rather than being necessary for realism.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the price, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a back up for my main vac and for quick cleaning in between my weekly blitz. It works very well and is light and easy to handle. Suction is very good. The only problem is that the dust tends to collect round the filter rather than drop into the cup which means a rather prolonged cleaning out after each use. Still, it is efficient, flexible and cheap and takes up very little storage space so a pretty good buy.

Very readable account of a cricketer whose influence on the game exceeded his bare statistics as a player. DSome interesting insights from a range of other players and cricket writers. Essential for any fan of Sussex cricket!

I buy one of these every year. I love Jolomo's paintings and this is a very clear, conveniently sized desk calendar. Well worth the money.

I found the structure of this novel slightly odd at first but it soon developed into a gripping story with an interesting twist. Beautifully written as always.
