5.0 out of 5 stars quality product, 6 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Peel - Whole Mixed 250g (Misc.)
I am about to order more of this item. It is of a superb quality; the flavour is good; it is beautifully moist and the company delivered it to me quickly. It is almost impossible now to buy this kind of quality on the high street as most of what is on offer is dismal to say the least.

Well shaped handle so feels good in the hand; lots of power and two speeds too so it really fits the bill. It arrived on time and all things considered, I have to say I am very pleased indeed with my purchase.

I really cannot review these items. They do what it says on the package and will be used to secure the dustbin lid (also purchased from Amazon) to prevent marauding squirrels stealing bird food.

3.0 out of 5 stars Radio 4 book choice, 28 Jan 2013

A very chatty style but, really as there is no evidence to suggest Shakespeare frequented the pub, I think the title a little misleading. I read it but found myself becoming impatient and think it was too long.


The Atheist Manifesto
The Atheist Manifesto

2.0 out of 5 stars The most badly written book I have come across................., 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this book having recently read Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi where she talks about how the Atheist Manifesto had led her finally to embrace atheism. As an atheist myself, I have no argument with the message of the book but, it is difficult to understand what the author is trying to convey when he obviously doesn't seem to know how to punctuate; complete confusion between apostrophes and commas and colons and semi-colons left me at times bemused.

He refers to James 1st and 6th as illiterate which he certainly was not and so, not surprisingly, it has left me questioning the quality of his research.

I am not naturally pedantic but, this is a glaring example of a book crying out for a good editor.

This is a masterpiece for anyone interested in eastern mediteranean food. I have other books by this author and they are pretty reliable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Infidel.................., 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It took a chapter or two to get used to her style of writing but, after that I was so drawn into the subject that I hardly noticed it. I feel I was taken on her journey too. 'Enjoy' is not the word to use here but, for me, it has been an education of just how it feels to be a Muslim - especially the fundamentalist branch of this religion - and what must be the terrifying experience of entering a western culture with its more relaxed and tolerant attitudes to religions of all kinds. This is about extraordinary bravery.

I'm sure I have done this before. Excellent writing style, very pacey read and very thoroughly researched and I would say iif you enjoyed Andrew Rawnsley's book on the subject, then you will enjoy this
