These Seven
These Seven
by Ross Bradshaw
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.00

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent short story collection, 12 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: These Seven (Paperback)
This is an excellent collection with something to interest people of all ages and backgrounds. All the stories have a Nottingham theme but the stories will be enjoyed well beyond the borders of the City.

Price: £12.79

5.0 out of 5 stars A human face to a current ethical issue, 12 Aug. 2015

This review is from: Do No Harm (Hardcover)
This is a prescient book that puts a human face to a very current ethical issue. The characters are well drawn and the way the doctor is pushed into the limelight against his will is all too believable. Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent service, 30 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The title on the item states it is Euro size. We cliked on the UK Kingsize size option, but the Euro size was delivered and this did not fit our bed. Apparently this was a problem with the Amazon sizing options. After this hiccup, Snug provided an excellent service, picking up the wrong mattress and replacing it promptly. We are very pleased indeed with this mattress and service provided by Snug, If you are ordering this product, just make sure that you really are ordering the size you want.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment, 19 July 2011
This was trying to tap into The Yes Man territory but despite the odd funny moment, it just didn't work and sometimes left a bad taste in the mouth. Disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good as I remembered, 20 April 2011
I remember reading this book as a child very fondly and looked forward to sharing it with my children. Unfortunately not quite as much of a hit as I hoped. On re-reading it was a bit "preachy" and just didn't have that "what's going to happen next" quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic that has aged well, 20 April 2011
This was a great hit as a read aloud book for my daughter. I was concerned it might be a bit dated, but it kept the interest levels up from start to finish. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read for any sports lover, 25 April 2006
This book follows an unusual structure - interspersing historical account of different eras with chapters focusing on particular phenomena - pyjama cricket, Packer and so on. It works well in as an historical record but two things stood out for me. First, although the usual array of cricket stats are presented, they are used in a particularly imaginative way. e.g. this is the first attempt I have seen at measuring the excitement level in test cricket over time. The second attractuib is the way in which Peter Cox manages to get over commentary on the dramatic changes to cricket since the war without the reader getting the impression of grinding axes. Cricket authors often fall into one of two traps - presenting a dry account, swamped by statistics or, alternatively, writing a polemic with the underlying intention of persuading the reader to their view of how cricket should be run. Sixty Summers manages to balance a genuine love of the game with detached and objective analysis. In the end though, the main reason I liked this book so much is that it's a good read!
