BaByliss 5567U Turbo Power Hair Dryer
BaByliss 5567U Turbo Power Hair Dryer
Price: 19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, no frizz, 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very happy with my hairdryer, though interestingly I notice my hair does become greasy more quickly than it used to do since I've started using it - weird! Must be something to do with the ionising effect.

Triumph Amourette 300 W Full Cup Women's Bra Poudre 32E
Price: 34.00

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish!, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
hook and eye closure fell off before I even put it on. Really, really poorly made, I don't know who is manufacturing Triumph's products any more but they need to get someone else to do it. Do not buy.

Price: 2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A creepy and unsettling read., 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved this book, the title story, "The Corn Maiden" is a total page-turner and very unsettling. Joyce Carol Oates writes creepy and unsettling stories like no other.


The Quality of Mercy
The Quality of Mercy
Price: 3.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Follow up to "Sacred Hunger", 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved Sacred Hunger and I was delighted to find that Barry Unsworth had written a follow up, following the life of Sullivan, the fiddle player. Though not quite as gripping as Sacred Hunger, this is a thought provoking-book with a lot of truisms about the nature of capitalism in the 18th century that still rings true today - perhaps even moreso than ever.

The Irish Zorro: The Extraordinary Adventures of William Lamport (1615-1659)
The Irish Zorro: The Extraordinary Adventures of William Lamport (1615-1659)
by Gerard Ronan
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 17.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary story, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great read, I found this biography of William Lamport gripping and indeed extraordinary. Gerard Ronan brings to life the adventurous and tragic life of William Lamport, who was (spoiler alert!) born in Wexford and ended his life being burned at the stake for heresy in Mexico. The journey from Wexford to Mexico is gripping.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks as cheap as it is, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather tacky when you get it out of its packaging, but then again it was cheap so I guess I can't really complain!


The Greatcoat (Hammer)
The Greatcoat (Hammer)
Price: 2.84

5.0 out of 5 stars A great ghost story, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very hard to find genuinely creepy and unsettling ghost stories - this one has it all, a great ghost story in the tradition of "The Woman in Black". Dreamlike and dark, a must for those who like their ghost stories unsettling rather than gory. Beautifully written.
