Me Before You
Me Before You
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars 10/10 Must read, 23 April 2012
This review is from: Me Before You (Kindle Edition)
I'm not sure that I can add too much more to what has already been said in earlier reviews about this book, but here goes.

I had the pleasure of reading Me Before You as this months read for the Book Club I belong to and boy what a read! I just couldn't put it down. The characters and storyline creep up on you and before you realise (around chapter 3 for me) you're hooked. I think the label 'Chick Lit' does this book a grave injustice it's so much more than that, it's gently written with humor, great observation and doesn't overdo the sentiment which is left largely to your imagination and somehow that makes the story all the more raw and personal. In short this is a beautifully written page turner of a book that scored 10/10 at our book club (the first book to ever be awarded to marks at our club)

Go read and enjoy, and make sure you have the tissues handy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a toy but delightful anyway, 17 April 2010
Really pretty bookends which would look lovely in any little girls bedroom. This is NOT a toy. I have given it 5 stars because it is unusual and very pretty not because it is in any way a functional toy.

Dont waste your money on this one. The slugs were not bothered one bit by this tape and got to my plants despite it. think this must be a bit of an 'old wives tale'

5.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of everyting, 17 April 2010
Purchased as a gift for an Estee Lauder fan (my mum) she loved it and has since gone onto buy larger sizes of some of this collection, so a great way to try a number of the perfumes in this range. Really good to take on holiday as the are the perfect size for travel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Stunner, 12 April 2010
My teenage daughter wanted a camcorder of her own, so after some research, and a limited budget, we settled on this one. The camara is perfect for what she wanted. Very easy to use, great picture quality and perfect size. All in all I would say if you want a point and shot type of camcorder (and you are not uber sniffy about spec) you really cant go wrong with this little stunner.
