5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy prequel., 3 Jan. 2015

Brilliant score as we have come to expect from Howard Shore. Containing musical links and refrains with shades of things to come in the continuing saga. Simply lovely to listen to and feeds the imagination. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing Drink, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice, refreshing drink best served cold although good at room temperature too. A pleasant change from other sweet ladened drinks which seem to be the usual fare on offer. Good for picnics as well.

First class forensic detection with characters that we have come to know and feel some connection with. This series goes from strength to strength; read this and enjoy, there's more to come!


Handplane Essentials [New in Paperback]
Handplane Essentials [New in Paperback]
by Christopher Schwarz
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's hard to find a book which covers the do's and don'ts of using traditional, old fashioned hand tools, but this is as close as I have come to having the guy in the room showing you how.
It's answered a lot of questions and removed a few fears I had. It's a well written, non-patronising guide.
Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkling Performance!, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to apply and a brilliant finish, you can't ask for more than that.
For best results I spray each panel of the shower cubicle three times. Once across the top, then across the centre and lastly near the base. I wipe over the whole panel with a clean, dry cloth and that's all. Within minutes the whole cubicle is almost dry and blemish free. Have also found that you only need to repeat this twice a week. For the rest of the time I spray with clean water and allow to air dry, no wiping.the result is a clean, clear cubicle with minimum effort! Brilliant!

These last for ages and are well worth the expense. Bought the pen? Then get a refill as well, you won't regret it.

I've had one of these pens for ages and bought another one for my sister. The barrel grip is comfortable to hold and the pen is well balanced. An absolute boon for anyone with arthritis. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 17 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have finished 'colouring' part of the grouting on the kitchen floor and have just bought some more to finish the job. We had new quarry tiles put down in the kitchen recently and the grouting was supposed to be dark grey, but it turned out really very pale and looked completely wrong.
Got a small 7ml pen to try and it was amazing, giving just the result we wanted.
It's easy to apply and the fibre tip lasted to the end of the paint without going soft and soggy. It certainly looks good and I highly recommend it. All I require now is new knees!


The Mysterious Island
The Mysterious Island

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading!, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read this book again for the first time since I was a child of 12 or 13 years old. Then I was captivated, that five men should do so much and that one man, an engineer should be able to find answers for most of all their problems. I find myself no less amazed now, it is an incredible story, well written and reminds us how futile mans' efforts may become in the face of the earth's natural upheavals.
Perhaps we should do well to heed the warning on this narrative, or am I just a child again caught up in the language and the story from the pen of a master of his craft?

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal reading for Summer Holidays, 10 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tudor Rose (Timepiece) (Paperback)
The last in the short series of four books aimed at junior school children who are struggling with their reading, this continues the theme of time travel. Short sentences make this an ideal hook by which Anne Perry reels the reader in and keeps their attention as they follow Rosie in the present and the past. As Rosie struggles with her dyslexia she learns by her experiences and finds the most unexpected help along the way.
I highly recommend these books,; they may be short but help young readers to enjoy their dip into history.
