5.0 out of 5 stars A good book for any age., 25 Oct 2013

I chose this book because is was one I was due to read at school but didn't. Now 40 years on I found it on kindle free books (I also found an old school copy at a recycle depot) and I began to read. A super book and one to take nice and slowly to get the full 'taste'. R L Stevenson is, as always, just brilliant with words. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still working through it., 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm still working through this book and have given the 5 star rating based on what I've covered so far. It's not a book you can just read and hope it will stick; it's a work book; you've got to go over things again and again to get more and more benefit. Depending on your circumstances you need to keep going the guidance, taking it in slowly and applying it. Some of it may offend you at first - who's she to say that my unhappiness is my fault when it clearly isn't ! - but as you stay with the book you'll see she's right. There's no gain without (just a little) pain in the form of resentment or pride. And another thing: whilst blaming others is a way to pain, anxiety, paralysis, depression so also you should not turn it around and blame yourself. This book is not about blame it's about moving from pain to power - not a kind of tyrannical power over people but power in your own life as you take full responsibility for it. Very good so far. May it continue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book and free on amazon kindle, 4 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Robinson Crusoe (Kindle Edition)
Robinson Crusoe hardly needs an introduction. It is a great book which can teach anyone a lot about life. The old man in The Moonstone (by Wilkie Collins) swore by Robinson Crusoe and found himself pretty much guided through life by its principles. How does the saying go.......?........the best things in life are free. Hope you enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Product Works OK, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived ok and was much cheaper than the charger from the dell site. The only problem I have is that the cable from the main (3 pin cable end) fits only very loosely into the charger block and if you pull the lead even slightly it is likely to slide out. That said, if you put it together and don't pull your computer cable around by standing up and moving about all the time then it's absolutely fine. The unit gets quite warm so I switch off when I go out or go to bed. Also I notice some reviews say that this item powers the computer but doesn't charge the battery. I find it does charge the battery on my computer so I was pleased with that. Worth getting.

This is a great little book and meets the needs of the novice investor. Recommended. Though you need to have the time to put the principles into action which I don't have at the moment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Arrived Broken, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived in good time and it was cheap. That is the good news. The bad news is that it got damaged in transit it seems as it didn't work properly when it arrived. So it gets just one star. The company was good enough to apologise and offer me a refund. As the item only cost about £3 it was frustrating rather than anything else as I was looking forward to getting and using it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Greenmantle, 19 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Greenmantle (Kindle Edition)
This is quite an exciting war time adventure which involves Major Richard Hannay and his three friends being sent by British Intelligence to Turkey in order to investigate and hopefully thwart an Islamic uprising (Jihad) orchestrated by the Germans who hoped it would destabilise Allied interests in the Middle East. The adventure is detailed and full of propaganda, co-incidence and improbable events. The reader has to suspend his disbelief much of the time. Despite all this, one gets a sense of excitement as the four companions follow their different routes through enemy territory to Constantinople and eventually Erzerum where the fanatical German agent, Hilda von Einem, is eventually killed. The book ends with a Russian victory over the Turks at Erzerum where Sandy Arbuthnot, as a kind of successor to Greenmantle, leads the cavalry charge in emerald garb and turban. The story is saved by having some basis in fact. The Germans did consider instigating a Jihad in the Middle East during the First World War and there was a German female secret agent in the area at that time. Many seem to rate this book as Buchan's best Hannay adventure. It was written in 1915.
