Cheap enough and does the job, but it's distressingly badly made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not much one can add to what's already been said ..., 8 July 2014

Not much one can add to what's already been said about Saki other than agreeing he's one of the wittiest, blackest writers in English ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Banks rides again, 19 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Peter Robinson is not the greatest writer, and this novel has a clunky start, but persevere and as usual one forgives him everything for the satisfying intricacies of the plot. As an aside no writer can have been as I'll served by a television adaptation, or by the miscasting of his detective.


Bonkers: My Life in Laughs
Bonkers: My Life in Laughs
Price: £5.91

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as funny as Jennifer Saunders, 19 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I realised this would be an account of 'how I met Jennifer', 'how I met Ade', and all that, but thought there might be some good jokes along the way. There were some, and it was all amiable enough, it's just that I was hoping for more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mildly diverting, 10 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Daily Rituals (Kindle Edition)
Turns out the creative process, while occasionally eccentric, is not that interesting nor that diverse (apparently five more words needed).


The Lambton Worm: The Definitive Guide to Angling in North East England
The Lambton Worm: The Definitive Guide to Angling in North East England
by Pete McParlin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.05

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in parts, 28 Sept. 2013

I was hoping for an alphabetical gazeteer, with clearly set out guides to waters, flies, administrative offices etc. set out in a clearly tabulated way. It fell somewhere between that sort of guide and a discursive account of the author's fishing. It had all the information in but just a little harder to sort out than I wanted. .


Conflicted Men

This review is from: Conflicted Men (Kindle Edition)
Felt more fantasy than reality, not that that's necessarily bad, but the writing might have benefitted from a good editor. Even that not a killer criticism except in the land of the pedant.
