Darkside
Darkside
by Belinda Bauer
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark it certainly is. in a small community. Read it, 29 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Darkside (Paperback)
This is an excellent British thriller. Set in a small community where a murder has been committed. The outside city detectives patronise the local bobby which is a wonderfully written piece of us and them continuing throughout the book. The story develops into a chilling series of deaths and incidents where the local bobby is doing his best to be noticed and be useful. He struggles with the dual responsibility of husband to a disabled wife. The arrogant city officer eventually shows some appreciation of the small village mentality even though his main aim is to return to civilisation as soon as possible. Darkside is very descriptive of the book. Unexpected twist. Clever. Well worth a read.

Rumours [35th Anniversary 3CD Deluxe Edition]
Price: £12.05

4.0 out of 5 stars well worth a listen of a legendary album, 29 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very interesting cd of the legendary Rumours album. The first cd has the original album. Still sounds good after all this time. The 2nd cd is a live album of the tour promoting the Rumours album which is reasonable. The 3rd cd is most interesting with alternative takes and demos. Especially where completely different songs can be heard that were combined to become The Chain. Fascinating. Always interesting to hear alternative versions but to splice two songs together... and make it work.
Well worth the money. There is a lot of material here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value for Money. Terrific Buy, 29 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted a decent compact cd player but didn't want to spend £400. This has a cd player. Which is important when I still have a lot of music on cd. Plays dvds via the tv. Has both FM and Dab. And will play ipod and Galaxy mp3 phone. Basically does everything I need and in one uncomplicated box. The styling is modern and sleek. The sound is excellent. Why is this so cheap or moreover why are similar hifi so expensive. Excellent purchase

2.0 out of 5 stars Trying to be something it isn't - give this one a miss, 29 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Torn (Reilly Steel 2) (Paperback)
Sorry but this tries to be American thriller but set in Ireland!! Didn't work on that level. The storyline started ok with a particularly unpleasant murder. Very original. But it just became unbelievable after that. Characters were not believable and the plot was just as thin. Not one of my favourite books this year.


Until it's Over
Until it's Over
by Nicci French
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Especially enjoyable for those who have lived in house shares. Believable, 29 Sep 2014

This review is from: Until it's Over (Paperback)
I must admit I have not yet read a poor Nicci French book. This is a stand alone novel and rings true of people living in a house share property and the dynamics between them. The protagonist, Astrid who is introduced as a girl knocked off her bicycle starts as a sympathetic person who becomes entangled in a web in which she just may be a killer. The relationships between the house mates becomes more complex and you can never tell exactly if someone is orchestrating events or if she is a victim of circumstance. Good book. Enjoyable. Clever and well written.

This review is from: 25 Years - The Chain (Audio CD)
I didn't realise that this retrospective had been out so long. Covers the whole of Fleetwood Macs career from the hugely successful period in the late 70's to mid 80's plus a extensive set of their blues period. Very good album.

Bought this for my mum who likes both biographies and David Jason. Couldn't go wrong. The book was interesting and informative with a strong vein of humour. She thoroughly enjoyed it. An excellent buy for anyone who wants to know about David Jasons formidable career and real personality

Can't go wrong with these glasses. Simple. Light. Excellent protection from the strong sunlight in Spain. Offered identical glasses by street sellers in the resort for 10€. They were a little disappointed that I bought these for £1.49 and I was trying to sell mine for 7€ back to them. Seriously though. No problems. They are comfortable to wear and are an excellent product

This review is from: ARTPOP (Audio CD)
After two megaselling albums of amazing music, the bubble has burst. Oh dear. Possibly 4 half decent Gaga songs but I dont think any of this material would get on her other albums. Very disappointing. If you want to buy a Lady Gaga album to see whay she is such a star don't buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Album - Well Worth a Listen, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: English Rain (Audio CD)
What a tremendous talent this girl is. Her writing is skilful and melodic. Bursting with ideas. A real fresh album of songs. You can tell how good the stuff has been received when the start using her as tv ads and incidental music in tv programmes. Outstanding songs well to be honest I could list them all. Gabrielle is the figurehead of a renaissance in English singer songwriting. Her singing is gentle not an obvious strong voice but works so well with the songs she has created. A testament to the quality is that I bought this album last summer and I am still playing it regularly and enjoying it immensely. Definitely worth buying. Check her out on YouTube.
