Minotaur Samsung Galaxy S6 Screen Protector Pack: Super Clear (6 Screen Protectors)
Minotaur Samsung Galaxy S6 Screen Protector Pack: Super Clear (6 Screen Protectors)
Offered by Minotaur Accessories
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product that works exactly as intended, 29 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this screen protector after having a good experience with another screen protector for my Nintendo 3DS XL. This was another level though. It fits my S6 perfectly and feels great. Everything wipes off it and it has lost none of the functionality or precision that the screen originally had without the protector. Having 6 in the packet is great for people like me with fat hands who struggle to attach it right the first time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book with great personal stories offering insight into life on the home front, 14 Mar. 2014

Julie Summers writes an enthralling book drawing real people's experiences and writing them into a wonderful narrative. I learnt a huge amount about the WI and their efforts during WW2 that I simply didn't have any appreciation of.

5.0 out of 5 stars When the children came home., 22 Mar. 2011
A compelling story of the experiences of 2nd World War evacuees. The beauty of this telling is that the Author is able to empathise with the children, the parents, and the foster parents. Taking on a child for 4 years or even less was a huge emotional responsibility and left its mark in the lives of all who were part to it. The parents, missing so much of their child's life and having an adolescent stranger return to the house. The children, many of whom missed the foster homes dearly when they left to return to slums, and the foster parents themselves who formed very strong emotional bonds to the children. The thought of bringing someone into your life for 4 years and then having them snatched away forever without any notice is a truly haunting one.

Somehow the author manages to bring together all of these stories with an understanding that helps mould them together and allows the reader to come to terms with the hardships and happiness endured and felt by everyone in the book. Truly inspirational reading.
