This little book is a fascinating exploration of the various plot types and variations. It covers all kinds of plots, for all kinds of books, from action/adventure to romance in a way that is not restrictive, but allows you to bring your own take and your own twists to what you are trying to create, while steering you in the most effective direction.Thoroughly recommended.

Spacious, quiet and efficient. The door shuts firmly and definitely, the shelves are easily adjusted, as is the temperature control. All in all, a great little fridge.

Who needs in-depth reviews? This film is quite simply one of the best pieces of all-round entertainment ever committed to celluloid. It has everything - humour, action, romance, tension and emotion. The perfect package.

5.0 out of 5 stars great stuff!, 8 Mar 2014

The album this CD is based around was one of CP's best, the interview is fascinating and the live set that he did for the BBC, which is also included on here contained some of the best rock-n-roll guitar playing you will ever hear. Anywhere. Ever. That's Allright Mama is just unbelievable. That track alone is workth buying this CD for. It puts Carl up there with the likes of Albert Lee and Mark Knopfler, among the guitar greats. There is no way you could sit still through it unless you were dead.

Hoover Optima OPH616-80 6kg Capacity Washing Machine (White)

4.0 out of 5 stars best washing machine I have come across in years, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Washing machines, fridges, freezers and so forth used to be made to last. They would routinely keep going for ten, twenty years or more and gained their reputations on reliability. Sadly, now, that is no longer the case, but this one is the best one I have found in a long time. Quiet, efficient and effective, I recommend it.

Chemistry: "A" Level Passbook (Key Facts)
by J.E. Chandler
Edition: Paperback

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had this book many years ago, when I was doing A level chemistry then made the mistake of lending it to someone. It took years to get another copy, but it was well worthwhile. Still one of the best best books on chemistry I have come across - and i am now a biochemist by profession. A must-have for anyone studying the subject, with clear, concise and easily understood explanations.

5.0 out of 5 stars fascinating, 8 Mar 2014

This review is from: Flora Britannica (Hardcover)
Whether to dip into now and then or sit down and read, this large reference book is endlessly interesting, with little stories and titbits about a huge range of subjects, garnered from all over the UK in what must have been a huge undertaking but was well worthwhile. It took me a long time to get around to buying this book, but as soon as I opened it and started reading, I was glad I did. Thoroghly recommended.

A lovely, different, funny and extremely well-acted little movie, reminiscient of the better known Babe. Thoroughly enjoyable by all the family.


Game for Vultures
Game for Vultures
by Michael Hartmann
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Rollicking adventure, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Game for Vultures (Paperback)
Michael Hartmann wrote two series of novels - one set in Africa, the other in Hong-Kong. This is one of the earlier Africa novels, so comparisons with Wilbur Smith are inevitable. But Hartmann stands up to such comparison well. His novels are gritty, complex and satisfying. Game for Vultures is a great read in the action/adventure mould.
