This little story is a briliant addition to the Russell stories. We discover a bit about Holmes' childhood and we get to enjoy their marriage. Fun and satisfying.

Brother Fish
Brother Fish
by Bryce Courtenay
Edition: MP3 CD
Price: £8.48

5.0 out of 5 stars The beautifully read 'Brother Fish', 14 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Brother Fish (MP3 CD)
This extraordinary tour de force is no usual audio book. If you haven't heard of Bryce Courtenay, then this would be a perfect book to start with. This amazingly comprehensive and well researched story is beautifully and skillfully read by Humphrey Bower. With his incredible talent for voices and accents, along with his surety in delivery, Bower makes this book so easy to listen to. As you know, audio book readers are a mixed bunch and too often there are breaks in delivery, or volume, which jar the listening ear and spoil the story. Here, Bower has to read in a wide variety of different accents. Through 27 chapters he never fails to deliver. The editing is perfect, as his delivery.

Listen with pleasure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mrs Hudson's case, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the series by Laurie R King but was disappointed by the quality and brevity of Mrs Hudson's case. I bought the kindle specifically to be able to read it since it didn't appear to be available elsewhere. Kindle is great. But, this short story is not. It is far too simplistic.


Immortal Faith: A young adult novel of vampires and unholy love
Immortal Faith: A young adult novel of vampires and unholy love
by Shelley Adina
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Immortal Faith, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It turns out that this novel is named appropriately, but you will not discover this until the end. Once again, Adina writes a 'young adult novel' that can be enjoyed by all readers. It is well written and proceeds at a lively pace. There is enough background to life in this closed community to inform the reader of the heroine's perspective, but not so much that it is stifling.

This is a novel with more overt Christian values than her steampunk novels, but it is not heavy handed and allows even the non-religious access to this world. This is a story of the revelation of a wolf in sheep's clothing and of how the innocent must act once evil has been revealed.

5.0 out of 5 stars lady of devices, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a witty novel that is so well written that it cannot be classed as 'simply' a novel for young adults. As with all fine writing, what is written well is suitable for all ages. The pacing is fast and feisty. The plot is
unpredictable and echoes the vagaries of real life. The fact that this is a steampunk novel allows the reader to indulge in accepting as real some experiences that would otherwise seem farfetched. The heroine is brave and a pleasure to get to know. If the 'girl power' message is slightly heavy handed, it does not detract from the reader's pleasure at discovering how the difficulties that are placed in the characters' way are solved.

And, the Mopsies are a particular delight. Enjoy. Make time. The book is 'un put down able'.

Orson Scott Card's Ender In Exile (Marvel Premiere Editions)

5.0 out of 5 stars Ender in Exile graphic novel, 19 Jun. 2013

Beautifully rendered graphics. A well told story. It is true to the soul of Orson Scott Card's Ender stories. It is a 'keeper'.

4.0 out of 5 stars white newplast, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Newplast 01 White 500g (Toy)
This is brilliant stuff. As a successful cross beyween clay and plasticine, it is versatile and not too messy to use. It is easy to clean the table and wash hands after using it. However, being an oil based product means that it is difficult to wash out of clothing or to remove from carpets. My only complaint is that I cannot simply order the stuff. I have to habe ordered £20 of other items from Amazon first and on the same order.

Ionic Screen Protector Film Matte (Anti-Glare) for Samsung Galaxy Note II Note 2 N7100 (3-pack)

3.0 out of 5 stars screen protector, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item is meant to cut the glare to make it easier to see the screen in the sunshine. It helps but not as much as I hoped it would.


Formic Wars: Silent Strike
Formic Wars: Silent Strike

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £18.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Formic Wars: Silent Strike, 19 Jun. 2013

The graphics are beautifully rendered. The story suggests depth of meaning - more so than in most graphic novels. If you are an Ender fan or like a good SF story, then this is for you. It is expensive but it is a lovely book to keep, read again, and to treasure.
