August Heat (The Inspector Montalbano Mysteries Book 10)
August Heat (The Inspector Montalbano Mysteries Book 10)
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars mystery in the Med, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the hot Sicilian atmosphere and the lively characters. But some of the local dialect is translated in a peculiar way - and it gets a bit tedious.

A Spy Among Friends: Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal
Price: £5.66

5.0 out of 5 stars Real-life thriller, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a story! a gripping tale of spies and treachery. And it all really happened.
I'm only half-way through the book, but feel I must share my enthusiasm for this brilliant piece of writing. Can't bear to put it down. Everyone should read this account of the activities of a vital UK Government department - and learn the shocking results of some of the decisions made.

These headphones produce an excellent quality sound. They're also extremely comfortable to wear. Can't believe they are sold at this price.

4.0 out of 5 stars super tablet, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Early days for a report! however, here goes.
I love this tablet. I only wish Google were more helpful. All you get is a quick start booklet.
I can't get the following installed apps to function : Music, Movies,You Tube, iPlayer. Obviously they can - I just don't know what to do or how to find out what to do.
Good point - syncing with my Kindle is fine! Amazon makes this smooth and easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars as up to date as today's headlines, 8 Feb. 2014

This review is from: The Effluent Society (Hardcover)
Everybody should have a copy of this book. Each drawing is a gem,and very, very funny. Amazingly, it was first published forty years ago, but is as relevant now as it was then to our society. Thelwell says everything that's possible to say about the way we live.


The Diary and Letters of Madame D'Arblay (Complete)
The Diary and Letters of Madame D'Arblay (Complete)
Price: £4.79

5.0 out of 5 stars living history, 8 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating account of 18th century life by one who lived it! Fanny Burney wrote novels but is mainly valued now for her diary and letters. She met Dr Johnson, Joshua Reynolds, and their circle, became lady-in-waiting to Queen Charlotte, talked with the demented George the Third, endured a breast operation ( without anaesthetic, of course ),saw Napoleon during a levee, was in Brussels during the battle of Waterloo....
She has an ear for quirks of speech, a deft hand in describing character and a great sense of fun. This is history brought alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars another great 87th story, 8 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hail to the Chief is another suspenseful story from the wonderful Ed McBain. The boys of the 87th perform their magic once again.
Have to admit - I'm obsessed with these guys. I haven't yet read all the 87th novels - I'm going to be sad when I have. What am I saying? I can start all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars great guys of the 87th, 1 Sept. 2013

I'll never tire of stories about these characters. They're all so brilliantly drawn, with such skill and humour. When I come to the last one, I think I'll begin all over again!


Ice (87th Precinct)
Ice (87th Precinct)
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars love the 87th, 17 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I begin to read another thriller in this series and always greet the detectives as old friends. Ed McBain is a wonderful story teller , with a great understanding of human nature. He also has a dry sense of humour. He has a unique appeat, so if you've never read any of his work, start now!

Kitchen Craft Bag Clips, Mixed Bag of 20
Price: £2.99

3.0 out of 5 stars reasonable value, 11 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The clips are sturdy and well-made, but there are only very small or large sizes. There are no medium size clips. Why? The medium size is the most versatile and useful !
