Raven Black (Shetland)
Raven Black (Shetland)
Price: £3.59

4.0 out of 5 stars evocative tale, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Evokes the sense of the island life so well. You can feel the closeness of the community; the way island life throws each personality into distinct features. Her characters are so finely drawn as are each one's preoccupations. But the final denouement arrives too quickly without sufficient justification.

5.0 out of 5 stars rainbow at the end...., 7 Feb 2014

A powerful story with profound undercurrents of so many emotions. Lovely descriptions of the island, the sea, the seasons, and the hard core of each human personality laid down in infancy and childhood by all that has happened to them, all they've endured and from which they cannot easily escape unless a loving family breaks down the concrete.

This kettle has sprung a leak after precisely 2 years and 1 month ! We found from the word go that the water level indicator was not easy to read and after 18 months the wording on the indicator was disappearing altogether. It also spurts out the boiling water when pouring . Will now have to order a new kettle .....but it will not be a Morphy Richards. A very expensive mistake.

The island and it's folk are so real and the descriptions of the seasons so vivid you can smell the peat and the heather. Enchanting.

Takes one completely into Island life and all it's richness of character, seasons, vicissitudes, and beauty. And with such humour too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of an Apple, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this iPad. Couldn't do without it now. It is so convenient for every purpose. An always at hand reference book with Google at one's side; a Kindle; a newspaper, complete with the Telegraph Crossword ! Scrabble, maps, emails...........everything you can wish for. The versatility of a desk top computer but in your hand or handbag at all times ! And so much quicker than my desk top too !

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind blowing, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wish I was coming to this book again for the first time. It is mind-blowing to the extent that one has constantly to remind oneself that this is not fiction. If it was fiction, one would be saying it was too far fetched and couldn't happen. Yet it did ! Golly ! - how much we owe to these courageous people. Wonderful book.

An addictive pleasure. Such a lovely way of exercising those little grey cells, so satisfying to solve, yet not always very easy to get started.
