Mislaid & The Wallcreeper: The Nell Zink Collection
Mislaid & The Wallcreeper: The Nell Zink Collection
Price: £14.99

3.0 out of 5 stars One out of two ain't bad!, 30 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If I'd been asked to rate these two books separately, I'd have given Mislaid four stars but the Wallcreeper only two. Mislaid's a really interesting little story, but the Wallcreeper is a bit of a mess, with too many poorly-developed characters and far too much about birds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total satisfaction, 6 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Astoundingly good service and product. I thought I was just buying the black bit that actually wears out, but they came ready assembled with the companion white bits, saving a tricky operation. Then I checked the SIAMP website and found a super-easy-to-follow video to show me how to fit it, which turned out to be a doddle. Thee overall effect was to turn a tricky little plumbing job into a total piece of cake. If only all products and services could be this good!

Blood From A Stone: (Brunetti 14)
Blood From A Stone: (Brunetti 14)
by Donna Leon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Always reliable, 20 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Donna Leon's books just get better and better. If you haven't read her before, don't start with this one. Read 'Death at La Fenice' first for an introduction to Guido Brunetti and the wonderful cast of regular characters he interacts with as he solves crimes in Venice. As the series develops, you will get to know these characters (and the city) like old friends.

Open it wherever you like, and you will find yourself with a grin on your face. How many books can achieve that?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent design, 20 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my mother who is in her 80's and who has very bad arthritis. Unlike similar items from other manufacturers, this was clearly designed by someone who had actually met a person with shaky hands and a poor grip. The handles are a perfect size and shape, and it is well made - much better than the plastic alternatives used by some of her friends. My mother is delighted with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Informative but unexciting, 20 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book gives a clear, easy-to-follow account of an interesting period in Roman history, but does it in a way that never fully engages the reader's attention.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I tried hard to read this, but only managed one chapter.

I found I couldn't care less about the hero and didn't want to spend any more time in his company, so I gave up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, but too many typos, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reamde (Kindle Edition)
The story and the storytelling are fine. It's by Neal Stephenson, so that's just what you'd expect.

However the experience is greatly marred in this edition by a constant stream of typos (often at a rate of more than one per small Kindle page). The words 'of' and 'off' are NOT interchangeable!

4.0 out of 5 stars An absorbing character study, 2 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Capital (Kindle Edition)
This book tells the intertwined stories of a wide cast of characters from varied backgrounds with intelligence and a high degree of insightful observation. The author does an excellent job of bringing all these people to life, giving each a distinct voice and making us care what happens to them.

There's not a huge amount of excitement, and nobody is ever put in peril, but the sheer intelligence of the writing makes it a compelling and enjoyable read.

This is exactly the same stuff that Boots sell, but at half the price. Not much else to say, really.
