3.0 out of 5 stars Beware centre crotch seam., 9 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are OK and do the job but they have a seam that runs down the centre of the crotch and cuts in, making running uncomfortable. I do wish the manufacturers would consider the basics of human anatomy and test their products on human subjects before they go into production.

I have tried numerous ear cleaners on my dogs' (Hungarian Vizslas) ears over the years and this is the ONLY ONE that has cleaned effectively without irritation. I have been using this product now for over a year and highly recommend it.


Lady Audley's Secret (Wordsworth Classics)
Lady Audley's Secret (Wordsworth Classics)
by M.E. Braddon
Edition: Paperback
Price: 1.89

5.0 out of 5 stars Discovering Braddon, 21 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mary Braddon writes scandalous novels, well they describe events that were scandalous in their time (Victorian era) but not so much now. Nevertheless, the writing is so terrifically engaging that one's interest is held and amply rewarded. I am pleased to report that the Kindle edition only had one spelling mistake that was a minor blight to a most enjoyable few nights reading.

This book was an excellent recommendation of Mary Braddon's works and I now intend to read everything she has written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful oil, 18 Feb 2013
This is a superior Camellia Japonica oil. I have tried a number of brands, including those direct from Japan. This one from Fushi is the best. It had a lovely light velvet texture and is absorbed by hair and skin without leaving any greasiness.


South Riding (VMC)

Price: 8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent characterisations, 1 Feb 2013
This review is from: South Riding (VMC) (Paperback)
Each chapter is delightfully and wittily named by what occurs therein.

Each character's motivations are thoroughly described.

The attention to detail is superb!

Good plot, great characters and plenty of meat on the bones. I read it in three nights and was riveted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 8 Jan 2013

This review is from: Millais Portraits (Paperback)
A beautiful book of portraits by a great artist. I thoroughly enjoyed discovering many paintings that I had not seen before in a large enough size to appreciate much of the detail.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asian Beauty Secrets (Paperback)
90% of this book is lifted from the internet. I became angrier and angrier as I proceeded to read badly presented, badly punctuated and badly supported "information". I advise others not to waste their money.

I would recommend any of Michelle Dominique Leigh's books about Japanese personal care and beauty traditions.


The Dream Hunters Of Corsica
The Dream Hunters Of Corsica
by Dorothy Carrington
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful discovery, 28 Jun 2012
Dorothy Carrington expounds upon an unusual, dare I say unique, set of beliefs concerning a particular supernatural event that were part of the village beliefs in the island of Corsica until very recently.
I visited Corsica after reading this book and Carrington's earlier volume on Corsica "Granite Island" and I must say that these books significantly enhanced my understanding of the culture and mentality of these newly, sometimes reluctantly, modern Europeans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncovering what is true and what is not, 28 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Prof. Hutton systematically and comprehensively dismantles witchcraft. The inventors of witchcraft are revealed and their invention is pretty-much de-bunked. Nicely done.
