5.0 out of 5 stars Total Comfort!, 5 Aug 2014
These pillows are superb. I had such trouble finding the large European style square pillows and was delighted when I finally saw these on Amazon. We buy our bed linen when we're travelling in Germany but didn't think to bring back the proper sized pillows. We both love reading in bed and these give us the back support necessary but also adjust well for sleeping. I will most probably be ordering another pair soon.

The most wonderfully exotic, sensual fragrance ever! I'm 64 and still feel like one hot babe when I'm wearing this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Truly Bizarre, 3 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A friend and I watched this film over the Christmas holidays. Both of us had the same reaction, basically "what the ....???" Choppy story lines and at the end, you're left with a definite "HUH?" moment. I can see where the screenplay intended to go (but didn't) and our over-all feeling was there were just too many gaps to be filled in and too much left unsaid. Not a film I would watch again and the DVD is actually in the charity shop bag.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Substitute, 28 Oct 2013
I bought this for my partner who after 40 years of smoking has been having a really tough time breaking free. He got rid of the cigarettes, only to get hooked on the nicotine mints and he was still "sneaking" a cigarette every now and then. As an allergic non-smoker, I could tell the minute he had a slip so figured this was a viable alternative and so far, he's been satisfied and seems to be cutting down on the mints as well, which always left him with chalky looking residue on the lips as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lame Ending, 21 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I quite enjoyed the story for a quick read, but the ending was quite lame! The premise was good, but I wish the author had fleshed out things a bit more, i.e. the bad guys needed more identification and meat to their bones. Given all I know about Italy (and not giving away the twist at the end), I could understand why the cops did what they did, but it just felt like the author was in a hurry to finish the story and kind of tidied up everything in the last chapter, but far too hastily. The first half of the book, I was imagining this as a great movie, but by the end it wouldn't work unless a LOT more story was put into it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs Serious Editing, 11 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book started out with a reasonable premise, but slogging through the very poor editing and masses of unnecessary history to advance the plot, I gave up before getting halfway through and had to delete, which I seldom do with any book. When you can't even be consistent with naming, how can you engage the attention of a literate audience? Pity, I like this genre generally, but cannot recommend this unless the writer decides to invest in a good editor, make some serious cuts and tighten up the plot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad Editing, 20 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Due to the number of times the typeface kept shifting from miniscule to huge and having to re-set, I ended up deleting this book about a third of the way through. I also had quite a bit of trouble with the plot line for the earliest point in history as I am a medieval historian and the grasp of the period was becoming more and more irritating as well.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used this machine many times since I bought it and it does perform well as a popper. My main complaints would be the large number of "old maids" (the unpopped corn) that comes out along with the popped corn and the fact that despite having a large bowl underneath (which does become quite hot so don't use plastic), the popping corn does tend to hurl itself all over the counter, especially as the bowl becomes full.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Literate, 11 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A real pleasure reading this. The interweaving of the teaching of English literature with the plot was most enjoyable and it was hard to actually put my Kindle down and get some needed sleep before getting to the end. I do hope the author will use this lovely character again in a similar fashion.

4.0 out of 5 stars In The Footsteps of Cadfael, 20 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had trouble putting this book down! Character development was excellent, as was the history, and as soon as I finished the book, I went out and bought the next 3 in the series.
