The Returned

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the French TV series, 17 Oct. 2013
This review is from: The Returned (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Although this has the same name The Returned and very similar plot ideas, this is not a novelisation of that tv series. This is a good read though. It also has a theme of the dead returning, this time as a world wide event. The main returning character is an eight year old who died 40 years ago. This gives a much different effect to the short period of time in the French tv show. This is designed as a start of a series which will probably focus on different returning characters, which do appear in this book too, but as background and not main narrative.
A good read. There is a prequel now available for your Kindle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hiltler's SS, 17 Oct. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a well researched history study of the intellectual elite, young very educated men, and what led them to become the key members of Hitler's SS. It is not a popular history read, which is easy to read, but an expansion of author Christian Ingrao's PhD thesis. It is not a lengthy book, with just 260 or so pages before you reach the 140 pages of notes, sources, biographies and index.
This is not an easy read both for reasons above and of course the shocking events that the SS instigated during the war. This is an explanation about how the most educated minds in the country became mass murderers.

4.0 out of 5 stars The first air bombing war, 17 Oct. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very detailed account of the use of air bombing during the Second World War. The author is a Professor of History at Exter University and he speciallises in World War 2. This book is over three inches thick and contains in depth accounts of the strategy and effect of the bombing campagins of the Germans and Aliies during the war.
The effect of bombing raids on potential civilian targets is a difficult area which we face in conflicts around the world today. Here you can read about how inaccurate the bombing was most of the time, and about just how inefficiant the bomber planes were.
It is only recently that the crews of bombers during the war have had there contribution to the war effort recognised with the London memorial. Read this book to discover the truth about how hard it was to be a memeber of a bombers crew.

Price: £60.20

3.0 out of 5 stars good multi use shaver., 26 Sept. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good male grooming product. Interchangeable shaving heads are used for trimming beards, close shave and body hair. The shaver holds charge well and if battery is low will charge quickly. Can be used in shower. I didn't feel the rotary heads shave close enough compared with a wet shave razor.

This review is from: The Kids Only Cookbook (Hardcover)

A colourful cartoon influenced pool to this children's Cook book. Lots of great looking recipes aimed at the young cook, probably the eight to ten year old. Really good for getting children interested in cooking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wooden piano, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice wooden construction kit which produces a model grand piano. The pieces needed care to remove from the thin wood sheets. The instructions in the form of a pictorial guide were not that easy to follow as many of the layers of wood were very similar. Good result at the end.


Arab Spring Dreams
Arab Spring Dreams
by Nasser Weddady
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Essays from within the Arab world, 15 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Arab Spring Dreams (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The strength of this book is that the many essays included within are written by people living in the region.
The essays themselves were supplied through a competition run by the American Islamic Congress which is a civil right organisation. You need to bear this in mind when reading to get a proper consideration of the views given. The writers give person experiences rather than a commentary of the general politics of the region. With so much unrest currently being show on television news currently in Egypt this book gives the personal perspective of the challenges faced in this region.


The Conquest of the Ocean
The Conquest of the Ocean
by Brian Lavery
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars a Dorling Kindersley book, 15 Aug. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an very good looking adult Dorling Kindersley book which follows the normal company policy of having striking pictures incorporated within the text throughout. The pictures are good and make this a good book to flick through to find a part that you want to read further. The scope of the book is large covering as it does 5,000 years of exploration by sea. Excellent book covering this subject as there are so many pictures, plans and maps which bring the subject matter to life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for school singing, 15 Aug. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very good looking book in which Cerys Mathews has collected together sing-a-long songs that have a personal link to her. The format is the story behind the song, followed by the sheet music of the song. The song is shown as the melody only which is a shame as I would have preferred it to be a full piano arrangement. The stories behind why the songs have a meaning to Cerys is interesting, and the book has an eclectic selection of songs to sing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Complicated to set up, 15 Aug. 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These scales are well styled and on their own a perfectly fine example of bathroom scales. The complication comes when you want to use the built in wi-fi system. First there is no adapter included to enable you to plug into a normal UK socket. Then the instructions are picture based and syncing into the Internet isn't very clear. Once set up you need to access the company webpage to look at the information, which is found there, but these days surely this should be an app, which would make the product so much more user friendly and would earn a few more stars.
