5.0 out of 5 stars I am so glad I read it, 28 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Betrothed (Kindle Edition)
Not the easiest read in the world, but I can see why this book is such a world classic. Its a moving story set against a fascinating history of northern Italy in the 17th century. I am so glad I read it. I have learnt a lot about the social history of Italy, and history and politics of Milan during the plague years. And the insights from the author into aspects of character and motivation as relevant today as they were then.

I gave the book four stars at first - as some passages were a struggle (especially late at night). However the book has stayed with me so strongly, and I think about it a lot so I have had to revise this to five stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointing, 2 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Girl on a Train (Kindle Edition)
One of the most disappointing novels I've ever read - after all the hype, which I now realise is about The Girl on a Train. This one is written in a very juvenile style, lacking any depth of description or context. The characters are totally undeveloped, remaining as two-dimensional caricatures, based upon stereotypes and cliches. The relationships remain wooden. It is only the plot which drives the book, and even this is very predictable, including the outcome which is fairly obvious halfway through - the author is incapable it seems of introducing sub-plots or red herrings, or of provoking thought and contemplation in readers. I hurried through the second half of the book just to finish it and be sure I wasn't misjudging it. I simply cannot understand why this is such a big seller. It reads as if it was written on a smart phone while the author was commuting to work each day. I don't think it is aimed at a mature or reflective audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says., 18 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent product. Does what it claims (I think as the instructions are in Chinese.) All you need do is put it on,and scan the QR code in the instructions with your phone. The app (in English) does the rest. The app may be fairly simple - but unless you're an absolute fitness nut it does exactly what is described, and seems to work well. Very good value for money. Unobtrusive on the wrist. Can be worn with an watch and is fairly unnoticeable.


SUPERMAX ULTIMATE SHAVING CREAM WITH TEA TREE OIL - VITAMIN E - ALOE VERA

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT the three pack variety of shaving creams as illustrated, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product supplied is not the pack of three Super Max 3 shaving creams as illustrated (Classic, Menthol, Lemon) but only one tube of Classic. This makes the product extremely poor value for money, as it is a simple shaving cream that is available in single tubes in high street outlets much more cheaply. The shaving cream is ok, but does dry out quickly. I wanted to try out the other versions. Have returned this for a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where the spirit really does meet the bone., 23 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic album - this is where the spirit really meets the bone! Not one bad track, and the final one really blew me away. I love this album. As big an impact as when I first heard West, and this is even greater form than the last album. How does this woman just get better and better?

Excellent product. Works well and solves the problem of the three pin Italian socket not taking European two pin plugs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, 19 Oct. 2015

A return to form after the middle Enzo novels - which started to become a bit formulaic. A good read, and an interesting insight into a Michelin starred business. The Lewis Trilogy remain the peak of Peter May's writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves a full album release, 14 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Dance for You (MP3 Download)
AmazIng voice - needs a recording contract so that she can be fully appreciated. Like many others I was stunned by her singing in 'Endeavour' and googled her. Would love to hear her perform some Etta James stuff, or old torch songs. A touch of Caro Emerald with more smoke!
