5.0 out of 5 stars Could not put it down, 16 April 2015

This review is from: An Officer and a Spy (Paperback)
Although I knew of the Dreyfus affair, I was not aware of the details and the novel kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. Thoroughly enjoyable read and beautifully written.

This review is from: Dominion (Paperback)
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Quite different from his usual, but well written and imaginative. Having lived through WW2
it was interesting to read about real people and how they might have behaved under different circumstances.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very readable book, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought at first that giving each character a separate chapter was not to my liking, but I think this was the best way to do it and it gave a very clear picture of each individual.

Even though I thought I knew all about it, it was, in fact, a complete eye opener and I found it easy to read and,to my
mind, very well written. There is no doubt, the whole affair comes of as a tragedy.

Colourful, romantic, superb acting and a good story. You are left wondering "could it by true"? Lovely and memorable background music

5.0 out of 5 stars An attractive and practical grab rail, 11 Jun. 2013

I wanted something that would enhance my bathroom and not make it look like something in a care home. It did this admirably and looks very smart and I am very happy with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye opener, 27 April 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Well written and although full of facts and figures, an easy read. Learned things that
I had not heard of before and gave me another slant on that period. Really portrayed how awful it was but without sentiment. Have passed it on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Thirties (Paperback)
Firstly, the print is very small. It is crammed with facts and figures which is very interesting but hard going. Not an easy read, so disappointing. Thought it would be more entertaining but turns out to be just a textbook. I should have investigated more thoroughly before buying. My mistake.


Mad Men - Complete Season 2 [DVD]
Mad Men - Complete Season 2 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Jon Hamm
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Madmen, 14 Feb. 2013

It reminded me of my youth when young women were glamorous and well turned out and did not want to be the same as men and not a pair of jeans in sight. Men were good looking well dressed and in charge.

The series captures the advertising business as it was and probably still is.

Avery good storyline and hope there will be more of it.
