Berlin Game
Berlin Game
Price: 1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book recalling the cold war era, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Berlin Game (Kindle Edition)
Written when the cold war was at it's height the book offered an insight into the paranoia and distrust of the time, while managing to be entertaining and easy to read. The wealth of authentic background information about post-war Berlin and its imhabitants adds further to the enjoyment. The first of a trio of trilogies (9 books) the plots are self-contained and dont have to be read in order except possibly this one, as its the first.
Those alive at the time of the cold war will recall it's climate of fear. To those born later I suspect the effect will be less and will be more like a good historical novel.


Playfair Cricket Annual 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well on Kindle, 26 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Books like this with no photos and lots of stats work well in the Kindle format. It would be nice if each county had a separate chapter, I had to painfully scroll to the beginning of each and then bookmark it. But once this is done its a handy reference during a game. I saw several people using a Kindle at Lords recently but most of them were reading a novel! Maybe they had the cricket stats on there as well?

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't beat the real thing, 8 Feb 2014

Not worth bothering with cheap imitations; they tear, disintegrate and you can never find the end. Make sure to buy the real Sellotape Golden at the best price you can find.

These are a bit thin and flimsy but I expected that for the money. They do the job perfectly well.

Sebo X4PET Automatic Vacuum Cleaner, Black-Silver 1300W
Price: 249.99

5.0 out of 5 stars If there was a Sebo owners club I'd join!, 8 Jan 2014

Way better than any other cleaner I've ever used. Oh joy, it uses bags so you dont get filthy emptying it. And the dust compresses into the bags so you dont need to change them so often. It doesnt topple over when using the extension if you are careful, the trick is to use it side-on. And despite low wattage its very powerful. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent charger - worth the extra, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace a cheap and nasty charger which was getting hot and didnt seem to be charging the batteries properly (it was pretty old). Having read the reviews I always charge in pairs of the same type. No great hardship. And as suspected the batteries last much longer than with the old charger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent avante-garde jazz, world music, 8 Jan 2014

This review is from: Mu Second Part (Audio CD)
If you dont have MU First part then buy them both together as they were originally two LPs which are available on a single CD if you look around. This CD is just the second LP. If like me you already have First Part and like it, then this Second Part is a must. This is marmite music, you either love or hate it, so if you are not familiar with Don Cherry's music try and sample a track first. Ed Blackwell is superb on drums and Cherry is inspired, playing a variety of instruments as well as his trademark pocket trumpet. Its not easy listening but its well worth the effort.

CAMRA's London Pub Walks (Camra's Pub Walks)
CAMRA's London Pub Walks (Camra's Pub Walks)
by Bob Steel
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide, comprehensive but compact, 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm already in the habit of taking this little book with me whenever I go to London. You can plan a walk, or just use it as a quick reference, since wherever you find yourself in London it will point you to a great pub nearby. It gives enough information to decide where to drink and also includes some nice photos. But it is not too bulky to toss into a bag or a large pocket. Nice glossy pages so hopefully will stay in good condition despite being carried round a lot.

Witherspoon in good form with swinging backing from Groove Holmes on organ and Teddy Edwards tenor. Nothing too profound just a good enjoyable track.
