5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome chance to revisit the past!, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: People's Parties (MP3 Download)
Some words have stuck in the memory; mostly "stamps from many countries...passport smiles..."etc. With the immediately recognizable and unforgettable voice of Joni Mitchell. A song to treasure, hopefully for many more years!

5.0 out of 5 stars hauntingly beautiful nusic..., 4 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Wherever You Are (Audio CD)
This has got to be the most wondrous collection of music and songs ever! The lyrics, sometimes in English, sometimes not, just make the whole cd more relaxing. Thoroughly transcendent! and so enjoyable that you might just want to keep listening to each song - over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Crow's Tale., 4 Oct. 2010
This book has to be in my list of top ten who-dunnits. Of course there is the obligatory corpse - Bob, in this case, but there is also Betsy, Alice, and Jill who all play a part. The absolute hero, however, (for me) simply has to be the master of the Corvidae family:- the one in this story really does steal the show! In fact you could say that he solves the crime, and saves lives - well at least one anyway. The fact that this crow has a broken wing, and needs to be cared for, just adds to the tension.
If the reader already cares about our feathered friends, he or she may just find themselves cheering this one on, and saying 'never mind the corpse, follow the crow!'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A KALEIDOSCOPE!, 16 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Enchanted Glass (Hardcover)
A most invigorating and bewitching story, full on every page with a 'harlequin' of characters and places. A story never to be forgotten; one that might haunt or confuse, or even befuddle a reader, but definetely one not to be missed!
Meet Andrew and Aiden, Stashe and Tarquin, Shaun and all the Stocks, also Rolf the dog, and finally Groil. Who or what is he? Read on and find out...
Also discover the 'Counterparts' and what they mean, or the 'Care of Field' and the significance of boundaries and barbed-wire. The list goes on and on, and is quite exhausting at times! A Roller-coaster of a boook in fact!
Hope there's another one like this...

4.0 out of 5 stars Uncle Oscar's Green Vase., 1 April 2010
Set against the backdrop of San Fransisco - this lively mystery involves a death in an old antique shop, and the subsequent arrival of a relative with cats! Other members of the cast in this tale include Mr Wong (a retired policeman) and Monty (artist, designer etc..) who also likes cats. And they like him too. In fact, these two feline newcomers - Rupert and Isabella absolutely adore Monty. Sometimes it seems as if all three can talk to each other. Do cats have imaginary friends? They really do steal the show in this story, both in their communications with Monty, and in the fashion show, where they really do give new meaning to the phrase Catwalk. They even dress up and wear jewels!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Case of Ancient Silk., 29 Mar. 2010
A lovely, lovely story about a piece of scruffy, (very old) and dirty silk, wrapped around an extremely old statue of Buddha. Sent to the U.S as a favour, but which turns out to be smuggled, not out of Thailand but ancient China. A piece of contraband, by way of an unsuspecting tourist, caught up (unawares) in international artifacts trade.
Read on; this story covers many things - buddhism, Bangkok, the arts of museum curators/conservators, tourists, and lastly criminals. Not to be missed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stunning World, 19 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Anathem (Paperback)
This book almost has me stuck for words! It is quite brilliant, even though often daunting; but do stick with it. The oftentimes strange language is very rewarding, as you follow the lives of Erasmus, Jesry, & co.
Fraa Jad is one of the 'haunting' Thousanders, and there are others too many to mention. I won't forget Orolo, however - who is a splendid character altogether...
A truly magnificent, mystifying yet thrilling read, and not just about people. This is a thoroughly humanitarian tale - full of odd bits of maths and science, linguistics and quantum physics. There are talks of possible futures (and distant pasts) so that, all in all you could say it is a book of differences. Certainly, Anatham is one book that will stick in the mind and thoughts and memory for a very long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Death by Dumpster., 14 Dec. 2009
Of course there's an obligatory dead body!- pink shoes included, but there is also a new cat besides Miss Marple, - a stray named Penny. As well as the usual sisterly banter between Tricia and Anjelica, you will also find all you ever wanted to know (or not) about freegan-life and diving into dumpsters for leftovers, as in vegetables or bottles of cooking-oil etc. To balance all this mayhem there is, of course, the bookshop with its reliable staff, two of whom are about to get married...
You might read this book at bedtime and finish it over two or three nights. It is good fun and there is no stress involved!

5.0 out of 5 stars Find the Feline!, 20 Nov. 2009
Get your paws around this! The wonderful tale of a cat-napping or two... Meet Jillian Hart and her three furry friends, one of which has gone missing after a break-in at Ms Hart's house. Is it Chablis the Himalayan, who is allergic to humans and especially their dandruff; is it Merlot the Maine coon, with his "deep, loud meow"; or could it be Syrah the Abyssinian cat? In fact it is Syrah who has gone Awol, and the hunt is on to find him.
An international inquiry ensues, uncovering a world-wide plot of cat-napping, which uses the internet to find potential victims. Now meet Deputy Candace Carson, a fellow cat-lover and new friend of Ms Hart. Together they set out to uncover the criminal, while also searching animal rescue centres and even putting up signs for the lost cat. But where is Syrah? Will he ever be found?
This book will set your whiskers twitching! Lots of clues and 'red herrings' will help while-away long afternoons, and maybe evenings too. One thing is certain - you'll be hooked!

4.0 out of 5 stars Who killed the bookbinder?, 27 Oct. 2009
This is one helluva Whodunnit. In fact one might also describe this crime thriller as devilish! The plot works around the search for the killer of Abraham Karastovsky, (book conservator/restorer) and the work done by his dear friend and former student Brooklyn Wainwright, (also a book conservator/restorer).
The job which Brooklyn has to take over following Abraham's death, just happens to be on an old copy of Goethe's Faust, and it seems to be cursed!

A great story - interesting and fun all the way to the end.
