4.0 out of 5 stars This looks like a hard-wearing product, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wish that there was an even bigger size for this, but this has made our large three-seater leather sofa look cosy for the winter. The throw does tend to slip, so I have sewn elastic at the back corners to loop around the back of the sofa feet. This stops it from slipping, but an extra large throw would not need this. This looks like a hard-wearing product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bigger than expected, but great value, 9 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are too big for dinner candles. Way too big for any standard holders. That is the only reason for not giving 5 stars.

These candles are big. One arrived a bit dented, so I've had that burning for 3 hours, and hardly any candle has burned down. There is a very subtle aroma. These are great candles that would make a good present. Just don't think of them as dinner candles. Too chunky.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, but flawed, 25 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed the book. I wanted to find out what happened, but there were two problems. I guessed the ending quite early on, and there were a lot of typos that were distracting. But, that aside, I did enjoy it. I finished it, and I don't always!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good story based on real experiences, 24 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Uprooted (Kindle Edition)
This was a page-turner. The characters were well portrayed and I wanted to see what happened to them, particularly as this was based on real people who were not wealthy -just average people with a political conscience.

I found the everyday details built strong images of what Germany was like in the days of economic crisis and Hitler's rise and how the country and families were divided. Having the author's note to explain what happened to the actual people who inspired the characters was appreciated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits fine. Arrived early, 3 Jan. 2014

Replaced the plate that I mislaid, and the second plate is useful for off-camera flash on a tripod.

Delivery costs were high, but the whole cost for two items was good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Also good for bouillabaisse..., 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Husband was sceptical, but now persuaded....I've had this for over one year now.

I've produced tagine dishes that have been tastier than in restaurants and the serving looks impressive too....

I tried cooking bouillabaisse in this too and it was perfect, plus much easier to serve than in usual casseroles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of twists and turns, 9 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sleeper (Kindle Edition)
I've not read anything by Emily Barr before but read this on recommendation.

This book worked for me on a lot of levels - both as a whodunnit (and what did they actually do), and understanding motivations of individuals. Sure, some of the plot line us a bit far-fetched, but then I can live with that.....the plot was unpredictable and new plot lines introduced along the way. Really recommended. I shall seek out more books by the same author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't read the spoilers- and not available on kindle, 17 Oct. 2013
I'd recommend that you don't read the reviews if you want to buy this. It does spoil the plot-line. If you have managed to avoid the spoilers, then I'm sure that you'll agree that this is the most enlightening literature to emerge from our government. Looking forward to the manifesto for the 2015 election. Am sure that this will firm a key part of it.

Oh, as an afterthought, why is this not available on kindle?

1.0 out of 5 stars Kept corrupting, 13 Jun. 2013

This review is from: Body of Evidence (Kindle Edition)
I'd like to finish this book but I've had to delete and reload it twice. Not happened with other books so my review is around the electronic delivery rather than the content. Hope I get to finish it one day, but in the meantime I've lost the thread as I've started reading other books.

Sturdy. Ordered a few and am ordering more.

Great that you can access trousers easily. Much more practical than other trouser hangers
