The Other Hand
The Other Hand
by Chris Cleave
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Engaging but unconvincing, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Other Hand (Paperback)
An interesting story and well crafted collision of the lives of two women from totally different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. But it lacks authenticity. There are many unexplained and unrealistic instances both in the UK and Nigeria, and the Nigerian setting lacks credibility as the author appears not to understand the geography or ethnic scenario there. If you have lived and worked in Nigeria, as I have, you will understand what I mean.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OKAY, 21 Oct. 2013

It is what is it is - a straightforward Timex watch. Keeps accurate time, looks reasonably smart - but not outstanding. Good value for the price, but it won't turn heads!

A good, well written biography. Amazing woman. Engaging, scandalous, and indomitable. The author captures the life and times of the era. Well worth reading

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product - poor information booklet, 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good product. Clean lines, easy to use, and works effectively. BUT the instruction manual is pathetic, half of which is devoted to advertising other products by the same company!

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do justice to the subject., 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A short book – too short. The author has based the book on the Lancashire witches’ trials in the early 17th century. She doesn’t do justice to the subject, which has serious social, religious, judicial and political elements. She wallows in the stench, obscenity, and superstition around witches and popery of that era. The story encompasses paedophilia, incest, prostitution, promiscuity, abuse, sodomy, lesbianism, superstition, torture, orgies, - all described in prurient, gory detail, although the storyline is slight, the plot almost non-existent, and the characters ill-defined. If the book has any merit, apart from its brevity, it does bring home the appalling medieval attitudes towards so-called witches and clandestine Catholics, bracketing them together as agents of Satan. Don’t bother to buy it – but if you’ve nothing better to do, you can whip through it in about 3 hours, so not too much of your life is wasted!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value but insoles not removable., 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good, well made boots. Good value. My only personal criticism is that that the insoles are not removable - stuck in with superglue or something, so you have to stick with the shape and comfort of the insoles provided, like it or lump it, whereas other similar Timberland walking boots do have removable insoles.

The subject clearly inspired the author or he would not have written the book but he failed to inspire me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spirit of Africa, 1 July 2011
A beautifully published book. Intelligent,interesting and engaging. Captures the spirit of 20th century Africa and the courage of those who gave themselves to explore and discover the unknown. A thoroughly good read, especially for those who know and love Africa's peoples, wild-life and landscape.
