This review is from: Gone Girl (Paperback)
This was a good read. I really loathed the heroine, but still read on. A healthy sign, I reckon! Anyone who likes a page-turner with a twist on every page will love it.

Just what a cookbook should be. Our ambassador chef , Gordon Ramsey of FWord fame has given us a lovely course in how to make meals look and taste good, simply. I enjoyed the TV series(and I hate cookery shows) and the book is an added joy.

This the sort of drama that is second to none. Wonderful performances, direction, production and camera work, costumes, make up and authenticity. I expected perfection when I sent for this and I got it. This set of DVD's is a definite keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous!, 6 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This truly IS a must have. I live in Hong Kong and the coverage here was a bit sparse, and we only really had highlights of the Opening on our local TV, and the sports covered were very locally orientated, eg lots of Table tennis and Basketball.
So I was just delighted at the richness of this set of DVDs from the wonderful Opening right through. Yes it IS biased towards Team GB and all its success and I loved that. I had tears in my eyes throughout all the award ceremonies, I jumped about at all the competitions and the immense pride I had at being British cannot be described. It is a wonderful bargain. One that I will play over and over. Quality production . BBC at its best. Thankyou so much!


Charles Dickens: A Life
Charles Dickens: A Life
by Claire Tomalin
Edition: Paperback
Price: 3.86

4.0 out of 5 stars Dickens, a Life, 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliantly researched, it came up to expectations. I can only blame myself, and I may be alone in ending up not liking him at all!
Yes he was a wonderful writer, a benefactor, a fighter for human rights, a loyal friend and a loving parent. So why do I find him egotistical, harsh and at times thoughtless of others' feelings?
However, I only fault the man, not the book or more especially the writer.

I bought this as a gift for someone who is a sports fanatic. I glanced through it before giving it to him, and it looks extremely comprehensive. I may borrow it back when he has finished his first rush of enthusiasm. Once more I was impressed with the speed of delivery Thanks

I am impressed with the speed with which these DVDs arrived and the reasonable prices too! They are going to be gifts for Christmas and birthdays so I have not played them . I am pleased, as usual , with your service, though.
