Crocs Classic, Unisex-Adults' Clogs, Viola, 5 UK (M)/6 UK (W)
Crocs Classic, Unisex-Adults' Clogs, Viola, 5 UK (M)/6 UK (W)

5.0 out of 5 stars Crocs for all year, 23 July 2014
I love the genuine Crocs - nothing else is quite as good. Wide enough for someone with wide feet, comfortable and able to wear with or without socks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love them all - and it was good to add this to my collection, 12 April 2014

I fall straight into the next novel in the series with no problem. All are entertaining, and interesting, as well as having historical information


Toe-Up 2-At-A-Time Socks
Toe-Up 2-At-A-Time Socks
by Melissa Morgan-Oakes
Edition: Hardcover-spiral
Price: £11.38

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and with helpful hints along the way, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found it a little difficult to follow initially, but once I got started, I found it easier to understand what she was getting at. A very useful book - all the socks I knit now are from the toe up , and always both at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like all his books, absorbing and so well written. But the subject was too close for comfort in some ways., 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dominion (Paperback)
An absorbing read. It could have happened that the Nazis did take over England - that was the frightening part - that it was a possible outcome of the war. We can fantasise about how we would like to think we would have behaved in the circumstances, but this book described some of the harsh realities.


Life After Life
Life After Life
by Kate Atkinson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and a great read, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life After Life (Paperback)
I think we've all wondered "what if..." Had I gone here rather than there, if I'd met X before I met Y, taken the later train...
This book looks at some of these possibilities and how things might have turned out differently. I did get a bit confused with some of the characters, but once I stopped worrying about who was who, it flowed, and I couldn't put the book down.

3.0 out of 5 stars useful - but a bit fiddly, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I liked a lot of the ideas, but found many of them more fiddly than I'd hoped. Perhaps, I was unrealistic in my expectations.


Dubliners (Collins Classics)
Dubliners (Collins Classics)
by James Joyce
Edition: Paperback
Price: £2.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I remembered it., 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd read the book in my late teens, and feel that reading it again I gained more from it. Age and life experience helped in taking more of the stories on board.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good ideas - not always easy to follow, 28 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are some very interesting patterns,but the style of writing was/is not always particularly clear. Useful, but not going to be a favourite I feel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Edge of seat detective work, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The writing is excellent and the story line -as always, compelling. Angst, fear, hope and finally resolution are to be found in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic of our time, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read it more than once and had lost my copy - hence the purchase. An accessible introduction to the horrors of the holocaust for my teenage granddaughter - and others of her age.
