A Month in the Country (Penguin Modern Classics)
A Month in the Country (Penguin Modern Classics)
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A joyous little read., 24 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An utterly charming and beautifully observed story. Quite short and once started you'll be reluctant to put it down.


The Merry Wives of Windsor - Classic Illustrated Edition
The Merry Wives of Windsor - Classic Illustrated Edition
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An edition for serious scholars, 18 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an edition which is designed for people studying the play very seriously, rather that just reading it or learning it for enjoyment. The footnotes often occupy more of the page than Shakespeare's text and there are copious nots throughout. You can't fault it, but if you just want to read it you do an awful lot of page turning.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality. Don't waste your money, 2 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first time I went to use it the clamp snapped. The clamps are described as heavy duty and they are anything but. I've returned it for a refund. Don't waste your money.

BRAND NEW DESIGN - WOOF WEAR SHORT YARD BOOT IN ADULTS AND JUNIOR SIZES (38)
Offered by Hoopla Carna Ltd
Price: £34.97

3.0 out of 5 stars Sizing is small. Beware!, 9 Mar. 2016
This is my third pair of this boot and the new design is short in length. I had to buy a size larger (a 43 rather than a 42) and therefore the rest of the boot doesn't fit so well. Shame. It's a good product.


Cold Comfort Farm
Cold Comfort Farm
Price: £1.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant book but a dreadful Kindle edition, 9 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cold Comfort Farm (Kindle Edition)
The brilliance of this 1930's classic is marred by the huge number of mistakes and misspellings in this Kindle edition. Clearly no one proof read it. It does ebooks no favours when standards are this low. A real shame because the story is sensational.


La Leela Cotton Palm Tree Printed Black Beach Hawaiian Shirt For Men's L
La Leela Cotton Palm Tree Printed Black Beach Hawaiian Shirt For Men's L

2.0 out of 5 stars For VERY BIG PEOPLE!, 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This shirt is way, way too big. It's a large size, which I'd normally take, but I can fit two people into this one. Having to send it back for a Medium. The oversize is emphasised by the indifferent cut of the shirt. It's only for a party so I'll live with the cut.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding performance, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An outstanding performance of the famous Vespers. This is a 'not mucked about with' version and, being on a slightly smaller scale than some recordings, the sound is clean and pure. Absolutely recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as its hype would sugest, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Miniaturist (Kindle Edition)
An intriguing plot that fails to sustain itself making the final third of the book somewhat flat. If you choose to read this book then when you get to the end go back to the beginning and read the prologue again. It's really an epilogue that's been put in the wrong place. Very annoying.

This review is from: A Pattern of Islands (Paperback)
I last read this book about 50 years ago. It's better than I remembered with superb storytelling of a standard you rarely come across these days.

A superb book of reference but readable on its own. Ms Crowe is a veritable gemstone mine of information
