The Secret Life of Bletchley Park: The WWII Codebreaking Centre and the Men and Women Who Worked There
The Secret Life of Bletchley Park: The WWII Codebreaking Centre and the Men and Women Who Worked There
Price: 5.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating non-technical history of the park, 27 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This history really puts the meat on the bones of other records of Bletchley Park. It records the social, emotional & psychological body of the lives of those who worked there, bringing many well known characters to life. This history goes hand in hand with other, more technical books and fiction works about the place & era.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull, 18 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really struggled with this. I like most of Stross' other books, but this lacked pace and humour. The plot is convoluted and the situations unrealistic. The science was dubious at best, and led to a feeling that this was written by someone with much less experience than Stross, who we know can do better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely quick read, 18 Oct 2013

This review is from: Stonemouth (Kindle Edition)
A very clever short novel about a weekend back in Scotland for an exile. The characters are well written, the plot moves apace, and the flashbacks are very well integrated. A really easy, satisfying read from a brilliant author.

This makes my S4 a much better phone. It is nice & chunky, well made and cleverly thought through. The hinge is solid, the screen clear and the phone fits into it perfectly. It has a real 'Germanic' feeling of quality about it, making the phone satisfying to use.

Easy to use, nice tidy product. A little loud and fiddly to clean, but in use it's doing the job well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor, 18 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really love Pratchett, he's an absolute genius, one of the greatest English authors of modern times.
I do not love this book. It is meandering drivel, with little humour, subtlety or nuance. The plot is cumbersome and stodgy and the characters lack depth. If you read The Long Earth and didn't love it, don't bother with this book; it's more of the same.

This review is from: Chasing Amy [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
This film really stands the test of time. Kevin Smith at his very best. It is challenging, funny, and thought provoking. Watch it early on in a relationship and get all those awkward conversations out in the open!

If you want to get into tabletop gaming, this is a simple, fun and easy game. 2-4 players means that it's flexible and the rules are written really clearly for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun collaborative game, 18 Oct 2013

This review is from: Pandemic 2013 (Toy)
We played this first with a new group now used to games. The rules were easy to learn and the collaborative element was very refreshing - everyone wins or loses together.

5.0 out of 5 stars All time favourite whisky., 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This amazing Welsh tipple is the smoothest whisky I've ever tasted. With friends, we tried this against much (MUCH) more expensive Scotch and this was far and away the favourite. Try it; everyone I recommend it to loves it.
