The Describer's Dictionary: A Treasury of Terms and Literary Quotations for Readers
The Describer's Dictionary: A Treasury of Terms and Literary Quotations for Readers
by D Grambs
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a waste of money, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some interesting ideas - a list of nose shapes etc but so much of it is pretty obvious and so much is missing! A missed chance, half done.


The Silver Amulet
The Silver Amulet
Price: £3.76

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting story for children., 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Silver Amulet (Kindle Edition)
A young Harry Potter fan? Then the Silver Amulet is the book for you! An exciting children's book that follows Gwendolyn's quest to find the owner of the Amulet, the mysterious Lord of Time. A real page turner!

A 1950s Childhood: From Tin Baths to Bread and Dripping
Price: £1.79

5.0 out of 5 stars very charming book, 26 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very charming book about an working class childhood life in the 1950s, particularly helpful for general researchers of the period or nostalgia buffs; it does not go much beyond the realms of working class life.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent crime thriller, 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent crime thriller set amongst the New York Hasid community. A super detective - Orlando. A bad cop - Briggs. The plot turns and twists and the ending is satisfying. I couldn't put it down.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortable, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Silly, badly written, not worth the money and an uncomfortable read in some respects. I wish I could take the money and the time spent (almost half the book before I finally gave in) back. I am taking this off my kindle permanently, not just from the archive but so I never have to see it again.

1.0 out of 5 stars deeply disappointed, 22 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wicked Appetite (Paperback)
I am a huge fan of Janet Evanovich - loved all her Stephanie Plum books - but was deeply disappointed with this one. It's badly written (I liken it to some amateur self-publishing novels I've read), the characters are thin, the story is just plain silly (I mean REALLY silly), it doesn't have the range of characters and it doesn't have the usual Evanovich bounce. It's a poor knock-off of her other books. I wouldn't bother buying this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Annoying American accent, 23 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't realise it would be narrated by someone with an American accent. It would be like an English person narrating 'Little Women'. Just wrong! Spoils it. If I'd have known I would never have spent all that money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 1 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best books I've read on the home front of the first world war. Taking the war chronologically, told from the testimonies of the last generation to remember it, it provides and over-all picture while going into sufficient detail to be engrossing. In fact I couldn't put it down!
