2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me!, 8 Mar 2012
This review is from: The Guardians (Paperback)
I have read this book and found it quite boring - all the way through you are waiting for something to happen but it never does. The writing is very disjointed and doesn't flow I found it very hardgoing. Others probably may like it but it certainly was not for me and as far as being a "horror story" I would say it has been mistakenly described.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure - A fantastic Read, 8 Mar 2012
This review is from: Pure (Paperback)
I am well over half way through this book now and I cannot put it down - it is a fantastic read. Describes pre-revolutionary Paris in such detail, and the character descriptions are so visual you would alsmost recognise the people if you saw them. Also the atmosphere of the area surrounding Les Innocents is almost palpable - the whole book is so brilliantly written, no wonder it received the Costa Book of the Year 2011, it certainly deserved it!


Civil War Ghosts (Civil War Series)
Civil War Ghosts (Civil War Series)
by Martin Greenberg
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Civil War Ghost Stories, 16 Feb 2012
Quite a good read - most of the stories came from the period shortly after the Civil War up until say 1911 and written in the style of the times. However, stories quite good, I particularly liked the final one.

Oxford Mini School Thesaurus (2007 Edition)
by Robert Allen
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Thesaurus, 31 Jan 2012
Excellent little book, bought it for my grandson aged 11 - provides very good alternatives to words and also states whether the word is a noun or verb etc. etc. I am sure it will be a really useful item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roman Passions, 18 Jan 2012
Brilliant, Ray Lawrence at his best - gave a true picture of what life was like for rich and pooor alike and the sexual exploitation of slaves and the intimate lifes of just ordinary people in the Roman world. Extremely readable, quite funny at times but also quite sad at times too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Haunted Underground, 18 Jan 2012
When I saw this I thought it would be a good read but unfortunately it was quite superficial and boring. Not much new that I didn't already know - thought there might be more detail in it but unfortunately not

Spirits Out of Time: True Family Ghost Stories and Weird Paranormal Experiences
by Annie Wilder
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.50

1.0 out of 5 stars Spirits out of time, 10 Jan 2012
Not at all my cup of tea. Thought it might be a good read, but it is so American (need I say more) in style - in fact iI fund it quite irritating at times.

Having just visited Carthage in Tunisia, I found this book to be very informative about the history of the Carthaginian people and their culture. I wish I had bought it before I visited there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phyto Organics Leave-in Conditioner, 10 Jan 2012
I've been using this for about 8 years and find it a brilliant product. A very light leave-in conditioner that leaves hair manageable and gets rid of tangles without being heavy.
