A Brief History of Seven Killings
A Brief History of Seven Killings
Price: £5.49

This is a challenging but immensely rewarding novel. Each chapter is told by one of the characters and some chapters are far from easy to read – it takes a while to understand some of the Jamaican characters’ patois.

But stay with it for a story based around Jamaican gangs and the shooting of Bob Marley (and so much more). The way the author weaves everything together towards the end is breath-taking. Oh – and there are far more than seven killings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 13 Jun. 2015

I was a bit wary buying this based on some of the reviews, but so far it has worked pretty well - cat mess ceased after the first few days of use. I like the fact that it has different settings for different animals, so I may try it soon to keep birds off the strawberries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great satnav, 10 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is so much better than my previous satnav. The directions are clear and the pictures of major junctions really useful. It can take a while to configure it to your driving preferences, but this is a good thing (plenty of options once you dig down into the settings). The screen is clear and easy to follow, even in sunlight. Also great to have all Europe and USA maps already loaded.

Simple but effective soft case for protecting the satnav when travelling (ideal for taking it on flights).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little outdoor 'copter, 17 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had a Syma indoor 'copter for a year and love it, but wanted something for outdoors. This is a great little machine that really does need plenty of space outdoors to get the best out of it. The 4 channel controls need some practice after using 3-channel machines but once you've got the hang of it, it's really manoeuvrable. Having the 2 batteries is a good idea to extend flying time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 17 Feb. 2015

Solid product - all-in-one unit, unlike some that use a loose-fitting USB to the car charger. A good price and a good seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album, 18 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I disagree with some of the other reviews - this is a near-classic with some wonderful songs, interesting arrangements and a stellar cast of backing artists. So good to be able to get it in CD.
