Great e-reader, probably not worth upgrading to this if you have a Paperwhite already though. Like the new page turns!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Apple TV, 24 Nov. 2014

This review is from: Amazon Fire TV (Electronics)
This is great - having used Apple TV for years, I'm amazed how much better the Amazon box is. Better quality audio especially, and the other providers' apps aren't hobbled by Apple. Netflix is much better on Amazon, and the voice search isn't bad at all. Nice work Amazon!

4.0 out of 5 stars ... the world of rural life in Britain after the Great War. A good story, 16 Oct. 2014

Well written detective story which opens a window onto the world of rural life in Britain after the Great War. A good story, excellent characterisation for its time and genre, well written. Pack this for you next weekend break in Norfolk or Suffolk!


Bring Up the Bodies (Thomas Cromwell Trilogy Book 2)
Bring Up the Bodies (Thomas Cromwell Trilogy Book 2)
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Cromwell - what a dude!, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fantastically well-researched historical novel. As with many such novels, I wonder if a particular modern sexual ethic and a cynicism about religion might have been transplanted back in the period, but really this is a small gripe. Mantel largely manages to capture and bring to life a whole society's power games, concerns, obsessions and ways of thinking. Cromwell has never really been examined closely (there's no serious biography of him, for example), and Mantel's research is a step in the direction of understanding a key figure in English and British history. It's well written, and carries the reader along at a fair pace - keen to get the final part of this trilogy now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great daily reading bible, 14 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought I'd give this bible a try for daily reading on my Kindle - basically you get all the readings for the day in the order you need to read them, and because it's on my Kindle I can carry it round with me easily. This has brought a whole new dimension to my daily prayer and bible reading, and I'd recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars great novel, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Goldfinch (Kindle Edition)
Donna Tartt has written an amazing novel here - not quite as compelling as Secret History, but definitely a masterpiece in terms of character, structure and ability to provoke empathy. Warmly recommended - others have written much better and fuller assessments of the novel here, so I won't repeat those, just commend the novel to any serious reader of modern fiction.

comfortable, warm, look good and keep me dry in the rain. Couldn't ask for more - no issues with quality which others have found, and a good fit, quite generous in fact.
