4.0 out of 5 stars A very good, dependable IS package, 27 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very good value package of one of the best anti-virus systems- Kaspersky for me has always been one of the most reliable providers of such- and this, covering five devices that include Mac and Android is well worth investing in.

Can't say how it works on Macs but on a PC platform I've had no problems. Easy to install, first scan reasonable quick and it appears pretty comprehensive. It then runs quietly in the background just doing it's thing. It's got all the features you need but the important consideration for me with these packages is the processing load it extracts, and this one is consistently, manageably low.

Worth bearing in mind this is a one year license and although carried on a disk, you can download direct from Kaspersky and activate with the product key if you prefer. Would recommend.

Rough Men
Rough Men
by Aric Davis
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.94

4.0 out of 5 stars Good pulpy violent thriller, 21 May 2015
This review is from: Rough Men (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A pretty pulpy, violent but enjoyable enough thriller for it genre. It's engaging and entertaining though never particularly taxing or innovative- in short, formulaic- but novels such as this have their place when you're in the mood for them, and this is an accomplished enough take on the driving forces of revenge in a world where the main currency of human exchange is violence.

Likable, rounded characters- thin on the ground. Cerebral analysis of the social issues degrading our streets- negligible. Snappy, economic narrative with violent thrills and shocks- check. Enjoy.


The Time in Between: A Memoir of Hunger and Hope
The Time in Between: A Memoir of Hunger and Hope
by Nancy Tucker
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.09

4.0 out of 5 stars An accomplished, affecting book, 21 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Considering the author is only in her early twenties this is a very accomplished book, a personal story that is frank and at times heartbreaking, as Nancy struggles with with her weight and achieving the 'perfect' body shape. Of course the issues involved are complex and more than just a young person's personal obsession with being thin- there are deep, disturbing cultural factors at work too and these are laid bare in this affecting story of one girl's struggle dealing with those pressures.


All Involved
All Involved
by Ryan Gattis
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.09

4.0 out of 5 stars A thought-provoking, exciting read, 21 May 2015
This review is from: All Involved (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A powerful take on six days during the 1992 LA riots. The pace is relentless and the characters are expertly sketched in their complexity- personal strengths and weaknesses often battling continually with each other, often by the minute- as the societal breakdown rips parts of the city apart for the best part of the week. A thought-provoking, exciting read that works on a number of levels and all with some panache- well worth a look.


A Song for Issy Bradley
A Song for Issy Bradley
by Carys Bray
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable book, 21 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A surprisingly captivating novel that offers a fascinating insight into the Mormon world, which of course isn't short of literary potential. The tale itself is quite moving and very well told and looks at 'Faith' from a number of angles. Not that that should put those of a secular mind off, because the issues dealt with here are deeply human in their emotional and rational scope, regardless of religious considerations. A very enjoyable book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, effective skin revitaliser and lightener, 19 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A product that as soon as you take out of the box oozes quality. It's presented in a very pleasant cylindrical bottle that dispenses the cream through a small nozzle operated by a push down button on the top, which is ideal for measuring correct amounts without undue wastage. At 50ml you also get a good amount and considering the quality of the cream, it should last a good while which makes the price tag look a little less daunting.

And what's the cream like itself? it has a pleasant, mild, unobtrusive scent and an excellent consistency that is easy to apply smoothly. It includes UVA/UVB protection and not only does it noticeably feel revitalising for your skin, in a pleasant, cooling way, it really does work at reducing skin blemishes. Very impressed and British made too. Nice.


Quicksand
Quicksand
by Steve Toltz
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Wry, poignant and funny, 19 May 2015
This review is from: Quicksand (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Didn't know what to expect from this novel to be honest- I've given up being impressed by Booker shortlisting a good while ago, having too often disappointed by what I read- but this was a very pleasantly surprising treat.

The story, set in Australia, revolves around two men and the relationship not just between themselves, but with the other people and wider world around them. With one a far from perfect policeman and the other a writer, the potential for tragedy and pithy observation is rich and Toltz capitalises on it with expert deft and a growing, quite moving poignancy. Along the way though there are a lot of laughs and, again, the author uses humour as a clever tool to draw out the pathos of the tale, rather than as a simple vehicle to offer amusement. A very accomplished novel and one unfortunately, British writers in the much vaunted [others would say over-hyped] literary genre seem increasingly unable to produce these days. Well worth a read.


Composite Structures According to Eurocode 4: Worked Examples
Composite Structures According to Eurocode 4: Worked Examples
by Darko Dujmovic
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £65.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable for all building engineers and technicians., 19 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Bible for all things Eurocode 4- if it's not in this definitive manual for the civil or structural engineer, then it's not worth knowing.

Bang up to date the student and practitioner really does need this book as a central point of reference, particularly as composite building techniques and systems now dominate the industry. It's also a well structured and detailed but clearly explained text with plenty of working examples and expert exploration of the challenges and problems that emerged doing the construction process. Indispensable for all building engineers and technicians.
