5.0 out of 5 stars Much brighter!, 24 July 2013

What a difference from the slow-to-light, dull bulbs we were conscientiously using before. We (elderly) an actually see what we are doing/reading now.

5.0 out of 5 stars This should be a set book in every school, college and university., 24 July 2013

This is a delight even to read through. Limpid, lucid English, with correct punctuation! A delight to a former English teacher, who still had some things to learn!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series!, 24 July 2013

Just finished it and started the next. Elizabeth Moon never disappoints. Good characterisation and the pace never falters, except maybe to give the reader a breather!

This review is from: Slimline Chrome Electronic Lighter
Very pleasing design, and easy to use. A bit heavy in my pocket, but I can live with that! Thank you.

I wanted a good cheap and washable gardening hat, and was inspired by a Test Match! Just what I wanted.


Raven's Strike
Raven's Strike
by Patricia Briggs
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £5.18

4.0 out of 5 stars Good finish, 19 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Raven's Strike is a good finish to the series. If it is the finish? The characters, as Briggs always produces, are compelling, and one can't but hope there might be further adventures for them. The story rattles along seductively, and if Briggs is not one of the top writers, she's always entertaining. Excellent book for a wet Sunday afternoon.


Polar City Nightmare (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
Polar City Nightmare (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
by Katharine Kerr
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Want some fun?, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This, like its predecessor, "Polar City Blues" is a real 'fun' book, with great characters, serious as well as silly situations, good dialogue once you get used to the language, and a fascinating but lightly sketched planetary background. Even if, like me, you know nothing about baseball ( some editions have a useful explanation at the back), you still get involved in the matches!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gardener, 5 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My trusty old gardening hat vanished the last time the small grandchildren came to visit, and has never re-appeared. This is a good substitute however, at least once I had sewn on an elastic chinstrap to combat our windy site. A pity I can't chuck it in the washing machine now and again, like my old one, though, as it is only 'spongeable', which is no use for accummulated perspiration!


The Heir Chronicles 3-Book Box Set
The Heir Chronicles 3-Book Box Set
by Cinda Williams Chima
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, just., 5 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read Chima's later books first, I was slightly disappointed with these, which didn't seem as good. Rather too formulaic and predictable. However, I imagine they will be very much enjoyed by new, teenage, SF readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very appreciative, 27 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read much on contemplative prayer which left me more confused than when I started, this little book was like a draught of fresh spring water. The author knows exactly what she is talking about and sets it down in the simplest language. I whipped right through it all on the first read, but I know I will be going back to it again and again. It will also be of use to seekers from other religious traditions, or none.
