4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting novel based just before the war, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Address Unknown (Hardcover)
This very short novel was written with a purpose just before the outbreak of war in the hope of opening people's eyes to what was happening in Germany. A Good Thing rather than a Good Read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy peppermint oil, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When trying to rid my house of mice, I read that they hate the smell of peppermint oil. I put it on wads of cotton wool and left them in the kitchen. However, I also plugged in a mouse and rat repellant and I think this is more likely to have been the factor that rid me of mice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent lemon squeezer, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This sturdy lemon squeezer is a much better option than the glass version or squeezing the lemon in your hand. Easy to wash and with useful little hinges on the side so that the upper element doesn't part company from the bottom as you squeeze.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful pack of batteries, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not much to say to this other than the fact that it makes sense to buy batteries in quantity so that you don't run out just when you need some.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful and illuminating novel, 14 Mar. 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars Scholarly book on food customs., 26 Feb. 2014

Although serious in intent, this book is very readable and attractively presented. Bought as a gift for a friend, it went down well.


Foreigners and Their Food: Constructing Otherness in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Law
Foreigners and Their Food: Constructing Otherness in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Law
by David Freidenreich
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £43.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Scholarly work on food, 26 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Full of interesting research/facts on food customs and preparation though sadly, like many academic books, printed in a small type size which is initially uninviting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Children's classic often overlooked, 26 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very nice edition of E.Nesbit's story about the Bastable children which for some reason gets less attention than her other books. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars IT WORKS!, 26 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We suddenly had a mouse/mice problem on the ground floor and they were becoming ever more daring, darting past in the evening in the sitting room while we were watching tv, very evident with droppings and appearances in the kitchen. Bought the PestBye Repeller to replace an earlier useless device. On the first night it was switched on there was a terrible racket on the first floor landing, loud enough to wake us. Subsequently we decided that this was a mass evacuation from downstairs. Anyway, although it took about two weeks, we are now apparently mouse free. This is a really good product and well worth investing in as the first line of defence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reads like a novel, 11 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent biography of a writer who comes over as a difficult person to love in spite of the many literary plaudits.
