I rarely write reviews but this book warrants the effort. I read a LOT and enjoy varied genres but this was a new experience for me. A fantastic book. The story is riveting, the characters all well rounded and interesting although not always likeable. I don't want to spoil it for anyone and so will only say that it is set in a dystopian England after a virus has decimated most of the population. It flows and it flows… Usually I take my books to a charity shop when I have finished them but not this one - I shall pass it around. And around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job very well, 11 Aug. 2013
After watching Rick Steins series on finding the perfect curry I felt the need to buy the correct equipment and have a go. Sadly could not get the real thing in this country but after consulting an Indian friend living in England I purchased the above. It's great! Does the job perfectly and now is in regular use. Love it.
Delivery & packaging excellent.

This review is from: The 20/20 Experience (Audio CD)
My first JT album and I have to say I LOVE it! Really good boogie-ing tunes. Great in the car tho not sure what passing drivers think to me bopping along!
At least 5 fab songs and the rest are still great...

5.0 out of 5 stars Ticks all the boxes..., 25 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just great! Since buying this book recently I have been able to revise ways that I finish items, confirm that some of the methods I use are correct and and get new ideas for casting on and finishing techniques. It is well explained with good pictures. I love it and will be recommending it to fellow knitters..

5.0 out of 5 stars What a book ..., 15 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't yet read this book but already love it. it was a total surprise when it arrived - not the standard format at all. 7"x 4" and almost 3" thick. Hardcover. Until I get a chance to devote myself to what I hear is a very good read it will remain on my coffee table as an object of admiration!
