4.0 out of 5 stars SO NICE TO GET A REAL POLO NECK, 20 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I WANTED A POLO NECK FOR MY HUSBAND WHO DOES NOT WANT TO WEAR A TIE , IS 88 AND NEEDS TO COVER HIS NECK, PLUS DOES NOT WANT TO BUTTON SHIRTS OR STRUGGLE WITH UNSEEMLY GAPS ROUND THE NECK. THIS WAS JUST RIGHT AND I BOUGHT TWO.

5.0 out of 5 stars REASONABLE AND EFFECTIVE, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
MY HUSBAND LOST HIS SENSE OF BALANCE AND ALSO HAD CONSIDERABLE PAIN IN ONE LEG. OUR HOUSE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR A WHEELED FRAME AS THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF STEPS UP AND DOWN, SO THIS ONE IS LIGHT AND CAN EASILY BE LIFTED UP OR DOWN. I BOUGHT A NET WHICH IS ATTACHED TO THE FRONT SO BOOKS, PAPERS AND BOTTLES OF DRINK CAN BE CARRIED TOO.

2.0 out of 5 stars DISCOMFORT, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
SORRY, BUT THE PAD IS FAR TOO STIFF AND HARD, AND CREASES UNPLEASANTLY. THE ONE I HAD BEFORE WAS MUCH SOFTER PLASTIC AND THEREFORE MORE COMFORTABLE.

5.0 out of 5 stars a tolerant view, 18 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THIS IS A BRILLIANT SET OF ESSAYS ON ALL THE VARIOUS INFLUXES OF FOREIGNERS TO THIS COUNTRY OVER THE CENTURIES. THE TITLE IS SLIGHTLY DECEPTIVE AS THE WHOLE WORK IS NOT BIASED AND INDEED SHOWS HOW FORTUNATE WE ARE TO HAVE HAD ALL THESE PEOPLE HELPING OUR COUNTRY TO BE INTERNATIONAL.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was one of Heyer's books I had not read, and it was a really exciting experience without too much blood and horror

5.0 out of 5 stars Old favourites, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find the Georgette Heyer books a delightful escape from frightful reality, and the worries and sadnesses that happen in real life. Her history is totally acceptable, and she is witty as well

Although this was reasonable I must admit I gave it up at about page 150, and may return if I have nothing better to read. Sorry

3.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for kindle, 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a serious book, well written, and on Kindle it is not easy to glance back at a previous chapter, so it becomes rather a grind. I may buy it as a paperback and eliminate it from my kindle.
