Bubba and the Mysterious Murder Note
Bubba and the Mysterious Murder Note
Price: £1.28

5.0 out of 5 stars Bubba does it again, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The normal mayhem & chaos all set in a murder mystery weekend where it all goes wrong for Bubba again. There is no one else on earth like C L Bevill, these books are a one off, I don't know how many more she can produce but I hope there are still more to come. I absolutely love the red neck (who isn't really) his mum (who reminds me of someone) and precious of course. They are best if read in order, there is some referencing back to other books but they do stand alone, just better if read in sequence

5.0 out of 5 stars Judge Dread, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Working Class 'Ero (MP3 Download)
What can I say. If you have never heard Judge Dread then you must be young or have been quite isolated in your youth. I don't suppose he is politically correct any more, maybe best not to tell everyone you love him? I don't know but this music that sounds like a black man is singing it, but when you listen to the words you realise someone is taking the p, you can't help but sing along, some of it is very funny & some of it just reminds me of being young. My advice - give it a go, you might just like him

5.0 out of 5 stars moving, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
amusing, moving and a wonderful way of telling the story of the relationship between father and son through good times and awful times, dealing with problems & conveying a wonderful mental picture of a slightly eccentric British middle class family. I absolutely loved this. Cried at the end which is unheard of for me, I found the depth of love (despite the frustration) between father and son totally inspiring

Interesting, insightful & inspiring. The story of some of his patients with explanations of what made them tick. I found it moving & it helped me gain insight to myself as well. If you have an interest in psychology then this is a "must read"

4.0 out of 5 stars well written, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written, a good story, complex, loses nothing in translation. A very good police story, but in my opinion it is getting a little dated. The character still is interesting & the plots wonderful, the political undercurrent still relevant but I am glad that the more recent books have followed the times & are more current. Doesn't stop this being a really good read.


The Dogs of Riga: Kurt Wallander
The Dogs of Riga: Kurt Wallander

4.0 out of 5 stars well written, 11 Sept. 2013

A gripping complicated dark murder mystery. I enjoy reading Wallender books they are a good balance btween his personal life and the crime he is investigating, I enjoy the glimpse into how other countires do things. This book as the title suggests has part of it's action in Riga. It is set at a time when things were very different, politically & scientifically in police work. An interesting book, a good crime but personally I found it a tiny bit dated

5.0 out of 5 stars I like it!, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Before The Frost (Kindle Edition)
This book has given Wallender a new lease of life. His daughter has just qualified from police school & they both get caught up through different routes in a gruesome unpleasant murder. I personally find that the early Wallender books have become a little dated but this brings them up to date, there have been so many scientific developments since they were written that at times I started to find them dated, bringing his daughter in has revitalised an excellent series of stories & I shall be reading the rest. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars compact useful little book, 11 Sept. 2013

small format, reprint of a popular series from years ago, practical old fashioned recipes would make a nice little gift or useful for student or someone who does not want shelves full of cookbooks with recipes that no one eats
