Pagan Babies
Pagan Babies
by Elmore Leonard
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.00

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 18 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pagan Babies (Paperback)
After Road Dogs, I couldn't believe this was supposedly written by the same author. The dialogue, his usual hall-mark, is abysmal.

Clarks Mens Casual Line Day Leather Shoes In Black Wide Fit Size 8.5

Price: 39.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Changes in Clarks sizes, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these shoes on the basis of a similar pair I bought some time ago. My previous pair were wide 8.0 but on comparison, the new shoes seemed slightly smaller. Cost cutting?


The Special Theory of Relativity (Routledge Classics)
The Special Theory of Relativity (Routledge Classics)
by David Bohm
Edition: Paperback
Price: 11.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Sketchy for most audiences, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not sure who would benefit from reading this book. The general reader will struggle with the maths thrown in, and the specialist reader will be irritated by the superficial coverage of the experimental details.

All in all, a failure for most readers.


Schaum's Outline of Abstract Algebra (Schaum's Easy Outlines)
Schaum's Outline of Abstract Algebra (Schaum's Easy Outlines)
by Lloyd R. Jaisingh
Edition: Paperback
Price: 11.39

3.0 out of 5 stars Good overview, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was primarily interested in Linear Algebra and Group Theory, whereas this text is a wider treatment of Abstract Algebra. It's clear and well written so I shall keep it in reserve for the other topics that it covers. In the meantime, although I have the Schaum books on my topics of interest, I'm still finding it a slog.

I'm a great fan of Timex. I find their Indiglo technology essential and I really like this understated styling. Mmmmmmm.

This shirt was just as I wanted, The quality was good, the fit was good and the price is good value. Also poplin hardly needs ironing, which is just as well.


Classical Mechanics (5th Edition)
Classical Mechanics (5th Edition)
by Tom W.B. Kibble
Edition: Paperback
Price: 19.41

5.0 out of 5 stars A different perspective, 9 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a thought-provoking textbook on Mechanics that compliments the more traditional Mathematics approach. It feels closer to Physics than is usual, but that said, it certainly shows what a lot can be done with a little calculus. Strongly recommended for anyone interested in Theoretical Physics.

Flair 12 cm Mini Sauce Pan and Lid
Price: 15.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Small is beautiful, 2 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most kitchenware tends to be too large for the single person, but this pan is an ideal size for cooking small quantities. Also very well made and visually attractive. A very pleasing purchase.


Timex Mens Watch with White Dial and Black Leather Strap - T20491PF
Timex Mens Watch with White Dial and Black Leather Strap - T20491PF
Price: 25.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly functional watch, 2 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like a basic watch that is easy to read and has an illuminated dial for the night-time. Timex ticks all these boxes, and although this particular model is probably designed for a young person, it is just what I want.
