The Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight
The Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight
by Dave Myers
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.00

4.0 out of 5 stars good but a bit meaty, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
some useful recipes and guidelines, it's not rocket science (eat less, exercise more, cut back on alcohol) but having an interesting recipe book is motivating- my quibble would be that there are not any vegetarian main meal recipes, you can adapt by replacing with soya mince or quorn (yuk) but if you don't like that sort of food much you are a bit stuck.

Clangers: Make the Clangers and Their Planet with 15 Easy Step-by-step Projects (Knitting)
by Peter Firmin
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Clangers! wahey!, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
my daughter asked me to knit a clanger and I came across this book while looking for the pattern- am a novice knitter but found the pattern relatively easy to follow- only problem was the clanger came up a bit bigger than advised so the pattern for the costume wasn't big enough (serves me right for not knitting a tension square) but was easy enough to adjust. If you want to knit a clanger, this is definitely the book for you!

I tried to get this a few months ago for my dissertation, but it was only available new, got it through inter library loans, published 2003 so not the most up to date but an excellent overview, glad I got my own copy (at a v g price!)

4.0 out of 5 stars exciting, mysterious, involving, 10 Dec. 2012

This review is from: The Crow House (Kindle Edition)
As a child I loved books like The Owl Service and House at Green Knowe, and this is in that vein- stories where the past and present mix, with some frightening results. There is a strong female lead (always a good thing) but with a main boy character too. It is strongly rooted in a place with vivid descriptions which lend credence to a story which might otherwise seem too fantastical. As an adult reader I had some reservations about the contemporary settings and the adult characters but these were soon forgotten in the desire to find out what happens. Short chapters as well as the strong plot make this a very easy read, and while there is genuine menace it isn't gruesome, and a satisfactory resolution is reached. For this reason I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for younger readers, but older teens, especially reluctant readers will not find it 'patronising' (the worst possible insult!)
