Gone Girl
Gone Girl
by Gillian Flynn
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

2.0 out of 5 stars Gripping start but last quarter of the book and ending are big let down..., 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gone Girl (Paperback)
Heard so much about this and took it on vacation with me - well written and gripping start but, without giving any of the plot away, it gets silly and the ending is seriously bizarre...I liked the he said/she said construct but frankly it's been done better by others and this book ended up being a letdown...


RHS Handbook: Pruning & Training (Royal Horticultural Society Handbooks)
RHS Handbook: Pruning & Training (Royal Horticultural Society Handbooks)
by The Royal Horticultural Society
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely easy to understand books with great pictures, 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a part-time very novice gardener I wanted a book on the basics covering pruning for wisteria and climbers - this was a great purchase with lots of detail but practical and readable. I have a few books but none are as knowledgeable and helpful on the topic...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that great - very disappointed, 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is quite a thin book which doesn't give that much in terms of helpful steps - the basics that you could google are there and then "take to a hospital" but t lacks practical info on what to do in lots of the circumstances or how to best check certain conditions - save your money and buy something more informative and useful - most of this book is taken up with posed photos...

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty but not durable, 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved these when they first arrived but my toddler barely had them two days and paint had come off the same spot in the middle of the rattles so I'd say they aren't that great for little kids which is who they are supposed to be for....paint comes off very easily...

Clippasafe Extendable Fireguard
Offered by Anything 4 Home
Price: £22.25

4.0 out of 5 stars Does a great job and doesn't get that hot with fire burning in front., 26 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great fire guard if you have toddlers - mine is kept at bay by it and though I can't say it is very pretty we take it off when fire not in use and it is light to move. Price is excellent

Price: £11.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and sexy - great nights in..., 9 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Borrowed earlier seasons box set from friend and was hooked - this latest season is one of the strongest and they bring back some of the quirkiest judges as well as completely bizarre counsel...laugh out loud funny at times. The will they won't they plot line of season two with Will and good wife herself continues in with surprising twists...great show - some of the best writing in television...

5.0 out of 5 stars Leaves you wanting more - addictive, 9 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mad Men - Season 5 [DVD] (DVD)
Half way through madmen (I think series three) it became far too dark and depressing - this series madmen is back on form with lots of fun, a bit of angst and depression along the way but with a lightness of touch. We made our way through the box set in four days...only another year to go until next series I guess...

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun update, 26 May 2012

If you loved the series and want to see the ladies at their best this is for you. Just wish they had gone on for longer! Nothing like a bit of Cagney and Lacey with the throw back hairstyles and clothes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quirky funny movie, 26 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Loose Cannons [DVD] (DVD)
Very enjoyable movie from this cult director - slow paced family dilemmas set in small town Italy. The difficulties of being open about sexuality in a very traditional town looked at sympathetically and with a lot of humour.
