This review is from: Bring Up the Bodies (Paperback)
Enjoyed this book - interested to read that Thomas More was not as virtuous as often made out, and had done his share of cruelly torturing prisoners in his time - and interesting to read an account of Thomas Cromwell's mind, that he was a family man, who really spent his life being loyal to King Henry by whatever means seemed necessary. It ended with Ann Boleyn's execution but not Cromwell's.

Cats didn't seem so keen on the fish sachets - am keeping it to offer occasionally to see if that helps.
Not liked as much as the 'Felix Good as it Looks Kitten'

Not liked at all - cats wouldn't touch it - too much water and big chunks in a lot of jelly - and not a patch on the KITTEN Felix As Good as it Looks. Left it down all day and had to throw it away untouched - am left with an enormous number of boxes that will be useless, and postal charges too expensive to return.

2.0 out of 5 stars Casio watch, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was extremely disappointed with this watch. The digits were small and very faint, not easily read. As for the instructions, they were in such infuriatingly small print, that even with specs and a magnifying glass, I could not make them out. I resorted to scanning the instructions, then enlarging the printed copy - but even then found the instructions not easy to follow. There appeared (may possibly have been due to poor print?) to be 2 different letter 'C's, and did not make clear which 'C' a specific instruction referred to. I ended up getting someone else to set it for me.
I had decided to return the watch, until I discovered that returning it would cost me more than the price of the watch itself, seeing as the 'handling and delivery' charge was 5.01 so paying postage to return it would be a waste of yet more money. In the end, I decided to keep it in the car glove compartment as a SPARE, and bought a more suitable watch from Argos, having viewed it first before paying for it, and also with easier to follow instructions.
I expect the Casio watch is probably OK as regards time-keeping, if you can put up with the poor visual format and miniscule type instructions.

The Painted Veil (thINKing Classics)
The Painted Veil (thINKing Classics)

Having seen the film, I wanted to read the book as I knew there were differences and wanted to know what these were. So I am glad I read the book, though puzzled as to how all the numerous mis-types occurred in this edition, wrong words sometimes as well as wrong spellings, making it rather curious reading at times. But as I say, my aim had been to discover the story difference between the film and the book.
The story takes place starting in Hong Kong, with the beautiful Kitty reluctantly agreeing to marry the unexciting Walter Fane, a bacteriologist, though in love with Charlie, a married ladies-man.
Kitty continues an adulterous affair with Charlie and when her husband finds out, he tells Kitty he will agree to divorce her on the condition that Charlie will promise to marry her - knowing full well, as it turns out, that Charlie will immediately back off, leaving Kitty high and dry and realising that she has been just his plaything. Walter then makes Kitty accompany him to a new post in a place riddled with hundreds of people dying from cholera. At first, she is appalled at the conditions, but gradually her character becomes caring, after she decides to work voluntarily in a convent run by French nuns.
In the film, Kitty ended up being madly in love with her husband, Walter Fane, and of course had the obligatory wild sex scene, a la Gone With the Wind, whereas in the book Kitty at the end had only developed a deep respect and admiration for Walter, her husband,who succumbs to cholera, but had not been passionately in love.
At the very end of the film, we saw Kitty with a young boy aged about 10 or so, whereas in the book, she had not even gone further than being pregnant. After Walter's death, she is reunited with her father, whose wife had just died and they make plans to go abroad and start life afresh, with Kitty caring for her father.
In both film and book, however, it is not 100% clear as to whether the child is Walter's or Charlie's, her former lover - but of course we - and Kitty - are left wanting to believe it is Walter's.

The book was extremely readable and I read it all in one go, not wanting to put it down.

This was very good value and I think most cats will like it - but it did not prove a favourite with my lot.
