The Loyal Servant: A Very British Political Thriller (Angela Tate Investigations - Book 1)
The Loyal Servant: A Very British Political Thriller (Angela Tate Investigations - Book 1)
Price: 1.59

3.0 out of 5 stars A good idea but slow to develop, 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well written book and I like the idea of the two central characters being women but their character development could have been so much better. The civil servant comes across as weak and is lurching from work crisis to domestic crisis in an unconvincing fashion, the journalist is better but I would have liked to see more background and a more developed portrait of the supporting cast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book - read it!, 22 Oct 2013

Got this as a free book on the kindle and thoroughly enjoyed it. I love Ian Rankin too and would put Ed James up there as a writer of Scottish crime fiction. Read it, you won't regret it, I shall definitely be reading more of his books.

My seven year old loves reading this on the kindle. Makes her feel very grown up and she loves the humour in the story and thinking about life from another point of view - it really is a dog's life!

This review is from: Gingerbread Man (Kindle Edition)
Tried this book as a free Kindle download and am very glad I did. Tense storyline and well developed characters made for a very enjoyable read and I was very impressed that the author steered away from the all too common gore and violence all of which was hinted at rather than described in every gruesome detail. Would recommend.

Arrived promptly and the mask looked brilliant. Completed a highwayman costume perfectly and the elastic seems sturdy enough to use over and over agin. Thanks.

This was a really solid hat and looked brilliant when my son needed to dress up as a highway man. Great quality at a fantastic price and delivery was speedy too. Delighted!


Understanding and Teaching Primary Mathematics
Understanding and Teaching Primary Mathematics
by Tony Cotton
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, clear explanations, 3 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good book which is broken down into sections covering each area of the Primary National Framework. There are lots of case studies and examples to help illustrate the points that the author is making. I would have liked to see more in depth examination of progression rather than using level descriptors!

I don't think there is much learning going on with this colouring book - buy it to colour in and don't expect any more!

4.0 out of 5 stars An amusing story, 3 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Covered this book with my class during a Tudor topic. They enjoyed it very much - the humour and the revolting Tudor remedies brewed by the main character's mother. Interesting facts at the back of the book and ths children learnt a great deal about Tudors whilst enjoying the story, would recommend.
