Unnatural Creatures
Unnatural Creatures
by Neil Gaiman
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £10.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Unnatural Creatures (Hardcover)
I'm a big fan of Neil Gaiman and was interested to read the authors that influenced him. It was particularly gratifying to find that he and I share a love for the same authors, like Peter S Beagle.

The book itself is attractively presented and arrived well packaged and on time.

But while packaging past stories by other authors and putting a very popular name on the front may help the readership find new writers they haven't considered before, it's still, to my mind, lazy publishing. The publishing world needs to find and promote new names - we can't and shouldn't go on living in the past!


Beastly Things: (Brunetti 21)
Beastly Things: (Brunetti 21)
by Donna Leon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite perfect, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the text. Donna Leon is an excellent author and the Brunetti series is engrossing. But the seller listed this book as in 'very good' condition, and as a volunteer at an Oxfam bookshop, I can say with authority that it isn't. The cover is badly creased and coffee-stained and the whole book is deformed and curved. If it came into our shop, it would have been sent for pulping.
Also, while these books do stand alone, it would be helpful if the Amazon site gave clear indication of which books come where in the series. I read Beastly Things on the recommendation of a friend, and while it's clear that it comes fairly late in the sequence, I'm struggling to work out which books come first so that I can backtrack and find out more about the fascinating Inspector Brunetti. Help please Amazon?
That said, it didn't stop me reading and enjoying the contents. If you haven't discovered the Brunetti series and you enjoy a good murder mystery with strong character development, give it a try.

Totally addictive and endlessly challenging, this game has amused me for hours. You can play for free if you're patient but it's more fun if you've u buy stuff and blast through levels. Give it a go - I guarantee you'll love it.

The only game I play is Solitaire. But then I found this and I'm now hooked! It's a good way to unwind after a tough day.

My neice loved it, and it arrived much more quickly than I expected it would - I was able to include it in her Christmas presents despite an estimated delivery date of 6 Jan. Like all Sylvanian dolls house merchandise, it is sturdy, has lots of little extras and is well-designed. You can change the configuration of the three units to fit in with the layout of the room, which is great.

Tihis is an excellent product for the price. It arrived on time, was safely packaged, and is well made. I don't have to worry about dropping my phone any more! The only criticism I have is that in the photo it shows a full-length stylus. The one I received is much shorter, but that actually works well for me - I've attached it to the phone like the phone jewellery some people use. If you want to protect your phone but don't have much to spend, get one of these.

If you like Terry Reid's voice you'll find this collection interesting. Not only does it have the Micky Most produced album in its entirety, it also has a collection of Terry Reid's later work, including some jazz inspired tracks. Hate to be cliched, but it's well worth a listen.

Good solid product and exactly what I needed. It arrived in good time and the packaging was secure and strong enough to protect it. Bit smaller than I imagined but not disastrously so, and it's not the supplier's fault that I still think in inches!
