4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to help my arthritic neck, 22 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vktech Cervical Neck Traction
It's a little early to tell but I have used this once a day since it arrived and it does seem to ease the stiffness of my arthritic neck and associated shoulder pain.


A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1)
A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1)
Price: 1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has started me on a must continue with the series. Incredibly well thought out and written with horror and delight on every page. Not for the faint hearted and needing concentration to follow the convoluted plot threads devised by an unparalleled imagination. The descriptive detail is extraordinary and brings this fantasy world to life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant enough, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is reasonably well written but fairly predictable and obviously expected the reader to be so enthralled that they would buy the subsequent books to find out the fate of the remaining unwed sisters. Frankly I couldn't give a damn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reads as if written yesterday, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Contrary to many this has not made me want to see the film as I don't think I could bear to watch this brave and stoical man and his companions being systematically tortured and abused. I would like to think these days are long past, but fear we must be ever vigilant so that history does not repeat itself even if in more subtle ways.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, 23 Jan 2014

Unputdownable series which is now a film, but I cannot see how the subtleties would be able to be translated as well as one's imagination does. The suspense is terrific and it keeps you guessing all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome continuation of the family saga, 23 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These chronicles are always well received as one thinks about the characters for a long time after reading and wants to know how they are progressing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rapturously received Christmas gift., 23 Jan 2014

I bought this as a gift for my granddaughter who is very eco conscious and likes to know where every mouthful of her food has come from. She said she had been wanting it since publication and was very happy to receive it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unmissable book for the barbeque fanatic., 23 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for Christmas for a grandson who loves to barbecue up to competitive level. It was such a good choice that he already had it, but other members of the family immediately started to bid him for it so everyone was happy. I gave it 5 stars because of that but have not really had a chance to use it myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not vintage Pratchett but welcome just the same, 23 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We must be thankful that Terry Pratchett is determined to overcome his problems and still communicate with us. He has always been one of the few authors who can make me laugh out loud plus many giggles along the way, and although these occasions are fewer the old wit still shines through and his imagination is as strong as ever. Gods bless him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seems to promise more than it gives., 23 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing much happens or appears to be proved in this undemanding book and adventures (on the cover) is an overstatement.
