Are You Experienced?
Are You Experienced?
by William Sutcliffe
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Travels, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Are You Experienced? (Paperback)
This novel is not as funny as some of Sutcliffes. It's basically about a couple (young man and young woman) who go on a long trip to India. They fall out and after a while go their separate ways. The novel will appeal to anyone who has made such a trip and anyone who wants to know what such an excursion might be like. There are a few funny incidents in the story but there is also considerable bitterness on the part of the male protagonist and India is presented "warts and all", not as some romantic destination.

4.0 out of 5 stars Animal Stories, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paws and Whiskers (Hardcover)
This is a very good selection of animal stories by a huge number of authors. They range from a page or two long to quite long. Many different animals are the subjects of the stories. Children who like animals will love it. The age range targeted is about 8 to 13 although older children and adults with an interest in animals will like it too. Jacqueline Wilson's name appears prominently on the cover and it would be possible to think the book was by her; she is, in fact, the editor but there is a story by her in the book.


New Boy
New Boy
by William Sutcliffe
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, 8 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Boy (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the first a few novels by this author I have read and this is by far the best and will appeal to those who like an accurate portrayal of adolescence angst along with some absolutely hilarious incidents. Sutcliffe handles both dialogue and humour expertly.


It's Fine By Me
It's Fine By Me
by Per Petterson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Austere, 8 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's Fine By Me (Paperback)
Probably a very accurate portrayal of a boy at 11 and 15 but not as entertaining as I expected. The lad lives a rather austere existence and this is conveyed well by the author.


Hamlet (The Arden Shakespeare, Third Series)
Hamlet (The Arden Shakespeare, Third Series)
by William Shakespeare
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Play's the Thing, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This William Shakespeare can certainly write and he should continue to be popular! Seriously, this is an excellent edition of the play with copious notes and background material for those who want help with what is not always an easy play to understand.


Ghostman
Ghostman
by Roger Hobbs
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Readable!, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ghostman (Hardcover)
Bought this on the strength of a great review which extolled the virtues of a new thriller writer and one who wrote the novel during his time at college. While this was a readable thriller, it did not live up to the hype. It's a kind of "chase story" and thus the plot was miniscule to say the least and there were pages which became a bit tedious. So, not a bad novel, but hopefully the writer will write a better one.

This set of pencils was a present so they have not been used by me but there was a good selection of both soft and hard lead pencils together with a sharpener.

Interesting, classy and suspenseful film. Good character studies as well as suspenseful story. This was a very good second-hand copy which was speedily delivered.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless!, 30 Dec. 2013

Poor distribution of ink along the line. Virtually useless for any document other than private notes and even these are difficult to read.


Now is Good (Also published as Before I Die)
Now is Good (Also published as Before I Die)
by Jenny Downham
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Now is Nearly Good, 20 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting and serious novel which did not quite live up to the hype. The author knew how to draw the reader in and engender thee tears but some incidents (especially the open) were somewhat unbelievable.
