Clarice Cliff Price Guide: Price, Shape and Colour Pattern Guide
Clarice Cliff Price Guide: Price, Shape and Colour Pattern Guide
by Pat Watson
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 4 April 2016
Having inherited a small piece of Clariss Cliff (an "orange" preserve jar) I sought to identify it using the book.There was the pattern on a sugar sifter on Page 29, third row down, sixth from the left of nine. Unfortunately, there were only eight named patterns for the row and, you 've guessed it, the resultant search on the internet of the named types revealed that the missing one was mine!

3.0 out of 5 stars A matter of scale, 27 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is always difficult to visualise how much wire of a particular thickness can be accommodated in one of these devices. I got two to tidy up the telephone cables but miscalculated as I should have got a larger size. Anyway it copes, but only just. But, they do what it says on the tin and that is what counts


Headhunters
Headhunters

5.0 out of 5 stars More Nesbo magic, 27 Dec. 2012

This review is from: Headhunters (Paperback)
As with other Nesbo books you think that you can guess what is going to happen but invariably the plot twists and turns like a twisty turney thing and you end up with a denouement that comes out of nowhere. A fast paced thriller that does not disappoint.

I tend to buy books on the basis of reviews that I have read in the press. The reviews for this book were excellent. I found that It was just an OK read neither hilarious nor uplifting nor hugely entertaining. It filled in a few hours on the sun lounger on holiday. I would not recommend it to friends because frankly I thought it just run of the mill.

A very entertaining story which seemed to combine elements of Jo Nesbo's work with that of pure comedy. A delight to read.

1.0 out of 5 stars One star too generous!, 27 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The kindle would not turn on. It displayed a yellow warning triangle with an exclamation mark inside. There was no guidance in the laughably inadequate booklet that accompanied the item as to what this could mean. A comment that a "Help" facility existed on the tablet is useless if you cannot turn the thing on properly. An interrogation of the internet led to a site with a subject for guidance on quick start up. Unbelievably this was just a repetition of the two small pages, one of which was a simple diagram, contained in the booklet. I tried to contact Amazon online, but the three stage process was estopped as stage two required a selection from a drop down menu which would not drop down or allow you to type free script. I therefore could not get the appropriate telephone number or a screen for e-mail advice at stage three. Altogether initial customer guidance, and after sales service was woefully inadequate. Will use a local shop in future to buy stuff. It may cost more but at least I can communicate with them, (and they pay taxes in the UK!).
