5.0 out of 5 stars Whatever you do don't open your eyes.., 20 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Bird Box (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Gripping unputdownable read which makes you say to yourself, just one more chapter... repeatedly. Like the best in modern tv box sets you will sit reading this longer than you thought you would. Post apocalyptic horror brought into the 21st century. My favourite book is "The Stand" by Stephen King the post apocalyptic horror of the 70's, "Bird Box" could become a genre classic for the 20teens.

3.0 out of 5 stars Curious incident ?. Not, 20 Feb. 2014
This review is from: When Mr Dog Bites (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book has a similar dog connected name and cover style to "Curious Incident of The Dog in the Nighttime", with a lead child character with a neurological disorder in this case Tourette Syndrome rather than Aspergers. So the book is being aimed at least by the publishers to a similar readership. Whilst I enjoyed Mark Haddon's "Curious" I couldn't get on with this novel. Not a particularly enjoyable read, possibly because of the language, which obvious is expected due to the Tourette's theme, and in fact the book does come with a written warning on the back concerning the language.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to loose your self in!, 3 Feb. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great book of humorous quotations listed by different categories. It is a good book for picking up and just dipping into to read a few quotes or a few pages. A source of quotations which can be added to presentations or included in written articles. The chances are that whatever it is you are looking for you will end up going off on a tangent and spending more time with this book than you planned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slim light weigh and big storage., 3 Feb. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice slim external hard drive, with a great capacity for storage for it's price. Not sure I need the built in facebook and social media backup programme it is packaged with, but it works fine as a standard external drive. Fits easily into a shirt pocket to carry all your important files with you.

3.0 out of 5 stars A "B" movie in waiting., 16 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Origin (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a run of the mill sci-fi story which is enjoyable if you suspend all belief and just go for it. As mentioned by other reviewers we are sort of in Xfiles, Fringe sort of territory with this story, and indeed it would make a made for TV movie. Not original enough to be a big best seller, but if you want some easy read sci-fi entertainment for the bottom of you holiday bag, then this will fit the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warsaw Uprising in detail., 16 Jan. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent story of the Warsaw Uprising of August 1944. The author is a well respected historian and fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford. A lot of this book has come first hand from the author's father-in-law who participated in the uprising and who contributed his own archives to Alexandra Richie to enable he to complete this in depth study. Richie has added her own research into archives in Poland, Russia and Germany. The book is a weighty volume, with over 650 pages of text, followed by an additional 80 pages of bibliography, notes and index.
The book is not a difficult read as some similar histories tend to be.

The Really Useful eLearning Instruction Manual: Your toolkit for putting elearning into practice

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £19.98

3.0 out of 5 stars ELearning for business, 16 Jan. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a collection of articles and contributions from, as it states on the dust cover, world leading experts in eLearning. As I have stated in my heading the book deals with learning I the field of adult learning in business and employment. My interest lies in eLearning for children and so this is not a book that covers thus area, nor indeed claims to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outer case for IPad or similar, 16 Jan. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good zipped case for an iPad or similar sized tablet. Looks good and is lined to protect your tablet from light bumps as it is carried in a larger bag. This cover has a small zipper compartment on outside for USB connection lead.
Reasonably priced and well made product.

Dettol Anti Bacterial Multi Action Power and Fresh Sparkling Lemon and Lime 72 Large Wipes (Pack of Eight)
Price: £24.40

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh wipes., 8 Jan. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are fresh citrus smelling anti bacterial wipes, that are reasonably tough for cleaning situations where you also want to to have the benefit of the disinfection. Have tested them and they do do a good job cleaning. I will have to take the manufacture's word for the claim that the wipes protect against 99.9% bacteria.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful and fun!, 8 Jan. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great little book for children to get them interested in numbers. Just a few pages in the book but each has fun pop up sets of colourful numbers. There are also fun questions on the pages asking questions about the numbers on the page and the pop ups, plus questions about colours and shapes. Quite expensive for just a few pages, but good as a gift or to have in a school classroom with six / seven year olds.
