1.0 out of 5 stars Velcro does not do the job!, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sadly, although I love the look of these shoes and they are genuinely comfortable, the Velcro that closes the sling back does not stay done up when I walk in them. This makes the shoes for me thoroughly impractical, and effectively useless. It may be that I have a dud pair but the Velcro is not a great way to secure them. So they are being sent back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, atmospheric read - thoroughly recommended, 19 Aug. 2011
This review is from: The Year After (Hardcover)
The Year After tells the story of Captain Tom Allen coming home from the trenches of the First World War. He is thrown back into the world he left behind, where friends are now scarred and saddened by loss. Events that had simmered and boiled over on the eve of war are once again thrown up, to be finally understood in tragic hindsight. Martin Davies has succeeded in creating an atmosphere of grief and despair, lightly glossed over by determination to uphold traditions of an English country houseparty. I enjoyed the characters that he painted and the details of the world that they lived in. It leaves you with a great deal to contemplate, particularly the idea that the soldiers who died on the battlefield were more revered than the ones that made it home. I would heartily recommend as a great page-turner of a story and as a portrayal of a moment in time when Britain was reverberating from devastating losses and trying to work out a way forward through the grief.
