After some research I decided on this jewellery box. I wasn't disappointed nor was my wife.

This box is good quality without being excessively expensive

I love historical fiction. I love Turney's writing. The roman period, especially around Caesar, are awash with books and I rank Turney in the top half of writers.

4.0 out of 5 stars My westie likes them, 14 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kong Puppy Snacks, Small (Grocery)
My westie likes these treats. They are quite big to give as a single treat so I break them into pieces for use on walks and training etc.

The treats are perfect for the kong toys that my puppy likes chewing on.

CaseGuru Amazon Kindle Paperwhite / Paperwhite 3G wi-fi eReader 6" Case/Cover/Folio/ Wallet - Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what I expected, 14 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to fit my kindle paperwhite which it does perfectly. I have no concerns that my kindle will escape accidentally.

On the opposite side there are 4 slots for credit cards that fit cards fine and there is also 2 parts for bank notes. This will be handy for holidays as I can leave my wallet behind and use my kindle wallet instead.

The magnetic fastener works fine, being strong but not impossible.

The material for this cover is ok but could be better, but I only paid a fiver and I cannot complain.

Overall I got good value for money and I am happy


The Last Gospel
The Last Gospel

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining but not exactly believable, 9 Jan 2009
This review is from: The Last Gospel (Paperback)
OK, compared to other books in this genre, this one is a bit more on the less believable. However the book moves very quickly and is quite gripping for the few days you are reading it.

Without spoiling the plot or parts of the story, lets just say that it seems that Mr Gibbins squeezes about 3 ordinary plots into 1 novel, it does however detract from the believability of the story.

It does reference previous books in the series, just to bear in mind if you plan on reading them.

I gave it 4 stars for the entertainment value. If it was for anything believable, I would go for 2 stars. Nice conspiracy theory though.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK so far, 16 Aug 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Having been a long time devotee of the madden franchise through Nintendo, Megadrive and PS2 I was eargerly awaiting the release of 09.

I decided to get Madden 09 on Wii as the reviews of Madden 09 on PS2 basically said there was little improvement on 08. I admit I was sceptical given some reviews I read on other sites.

First impressions were the graphics are an improvement on PS2, but you should change the visual settings as per the instruction booklet.

I did start to get frustrated with the controls at first, but am getting the hang of it, though still haven't mastered catching. I have tried several minicamps and the Learn Madden function, both of which teach you the basics quite well. The controls will probably mean that the game will never be as easy on All Madden as the PS2, but that isn't a bad thing.

The game moves quicker than the PS2 between plays, thankfully! There is also the option of picking plays by style, ie Inside Run, Outside Run, Short, Medium, Long Passes, Play Action etc. Its a nice change if you know you're in a throwing down and want to see your options. For Madden veterans, don't worry the option to select play by formation is still there. For beginners there is also an even more simplified option of play selection until you learn the ropes.

All the usual suspects are there, historic teams, Franchise mode, Superstar mode etc and I haven't seen too much different yet. I haven't tried the 5 on 5 yet, but it looks more like a "multiplayer with a few pints in you" mode than a serious game.

All in all I'm happy so far and have just started a franchise mode. If after a few days I get sick of the controls, I'll let you know.

For Madden devotees with a wii, its worth a punt, but bear with the controls for a while.

For non-nfl wii fans, this version of Madden is far easier to pick up and learn than any previous version I have played. If you're interested in a sports game that could get incredibly addictive, give this a look.
