This review is from: H is for Hawk (Kindle Edition)
I still haven't finished this book. It is a style of writing that is beginning to lose my interest. It seems a forced style of poetic writing

4.0 out of 5 stars Sadly the end, 10 Dec. 2014

Another brilliant book by Len Deighton. Slightly disappointed by the ending as didn't think it brought the series to a satisfactory close. My judgement may well be coloured by the sense of sadness that there are no more Bernard Sampson adventures to enjoy

A brilliant book. Read Game, Set and Match ages ago. Then last year discovered Hook Line and Sinker. Thrilled to find there were 3 more with the ongoing story of Bernard Sampson. It didn't disappoint.

Walking Home
Walking Home
by Simon Armitage
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.54

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book, 14 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Walking Home (Hardcover)
We have been fans of Simon Armitage after seeing him on a number of TV programmes about poetry. However we were inspired to buy this book after seeing Simon at the Marlborough Literary Festival at the end of September. He read extracts from Walking Home, and the next day we bought the book. It is a very down to earth account of his walk along the Pennine Way, the wrong way, back to his home village of Marsden. It is full of humour and written very poetically as you would imagine from someone who should be our next Poet Laureate!


River Thames & the Southern Waterways (Collins/Nicholson Waterways Guides, Book 7)
River Thames & the Southern Waterways (Collins/Nicholson Waterways Guides, Book 7)
by HarperCollins UK
Edition: Spiral-bound

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what we wanted, 14 Nov. 2012

We had been looking for a guide for walking the Kennet & Avon Tow Path from Reading to our home near Devizes. This is ideal, as although for narrow boat users it gives detailed maps, places of interest and more importantly pubs along the way to contact for over night stays en route. Because it also includes other waterways in the south it has also given us ideas for other walks.
