3.0 out of 5 stars A detailed read., 14 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I did not really enjoy this book and found the way it was written from the viewpoint of different characters quite confusing. It is well written and would appeal to a reader who can take in more detail at a time and then retain it and use it to keep the story thread live. It possibly lends itself also to being able to read quite a long section at a time rather than keep returning to the book.
The topic is interesting and well researched. It is not my type of book but some members of the Book Club I attend had enjoyed it and found it humorous as well. If you are interested in Australian history it is worth a try .
This is a very personal viewpoint and I would give the book the benefit of the doubt and make your own judgement . Perhaps use a library copy before investing in one of your own. Sorry, Amazon !

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile white paper bags., 26 Nov. 2014

These are good, strong bags as described and I am using them for gift bags. They are easily decorated and look great with other colours such as coloured ribbons , stick on motifs etc.
I have decorated several for Christmas and am really pleased with them.
I am sure there are many other uses such as lunch bags and having 100 means I should not run out in the near future !!

5.0 out of 5 stars a superb read, 3 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gone Girl (Kindle Edition)
I love the way the book is split into the various sections depending on who is telling the story at that moment. I also like the fact that you cannot pre-guess what is going to happen even though you think you can at times! The characters are well drawn and , in spite of their complex and frightening personalities , are believable. The secondary characters too are clearly defined.
It is a great depiction of how we can make others believe we are thinking one thing whilst actually thinking the opposite.
As a story, it is a page turner and the ending is just about right, if not wholly satisfying. You can predict how their lives will pan out in the future and it is not a pleasant thought.
There was not anything I disliked about it . It is cleverly written and I have not noticed any flaws in the details set out before us as the author has planned as well as Amy did !
I would recommend this, particularly if you like ' Before I go to sleep ' or 'The Bed I made ' both by different authors.


20 To Make: Knitted Tiny Bears (Twenty to Make)
20 To Make: Knitted Tiny Bears (Twenty to Make)
by Val Pierce
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely little book, 17 Oct. 2014
This is for a friend who loves teddies and knitting small toys so it should be ideal. It is a delightful book with some really cute teddy bears to knit. I think you could let your imagination go also with the range of colours you use and yarn types.
I thought it would make an ideal small gift or stocking filler for a keen knitter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare for Christmas simply and quickly !!!!, 17 Oct. 2014
This is a great value little book with very simple but effective small items to knit. The stars are particularly easy and quick to knit. My knitting group thought there were some cute designs and something for everyone to try. Favourites so far are the Angel, tiny sweater, snowman and the star. If you like more of a challenge the Nordic bunting is very striking. I like the way that most patterns lend themselves to using up odd balls of yarn. Sparkly yarn particularly good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super product., 29 Aug. 2014
I love this product. I wanted it to highlight rather than cover but it suits my needs. It does cover the grey and as I chose a lighter shade than my hair colour , it also gives a lighter look to areas of my hair.It is easy to use although looks a little odd at first as it is like a lipstick shape but the packaging means it is a stick form which does not wind up or down but stays the size until you have used it a lot.
I also find on my hair that it keeps the hair in place where you have coloured.
Good value product. I intend to get another even lighter shade.

We may not have understood fully what it fits and what it does not fit but this was no use for our requirements.
The seller was fine, no problems there.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely fragrance smell, 29 Aug. 2014
This is a really lovely fragrance which you can actually smell during all the burning hours. I find it lasts long enough to justify the price.
