Good value for money, a true rose scent that is not too sweet and is subtle. It lingers gently for many hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it!!!, 26 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jigsaw Man (Hardcover)
This long-awaited fourth book by Elena Forbes is excellent and confirms her talent as a writer - it is a page-turner but one with complex and interesting characters that gives a depth to the book. As usual, she has a good sense of place and creates a great background to the events that take place. If you like a thriller (or mystery as the Americans say) where you can take pleasure from more than just action, this is the one for you. Like the best of the writers in this genre, she is a cracking good writer!

5.0 out of 5 stars the best tv series ever made, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The delicate balance between comedy and suspense that this series achieved over such a long period and the consistency of direction (style etc.) and the superb acting make this a unique work of art! The villains are so gigantic in concept they are like something from Greek drama and yet completely believable, and we can feel the human being with his complexity in all of the characters. You can't help but empathise with Walter and Jesse and all of the rest in their turmoil.


Holy Orders: Quirke Mysteries Book 6
Holy Orders: Quirke Mysteries Book 6
by Benjamin Black
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.54

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Quirk at his best., 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a great admirer of Benjamin Black/John Banville and the splendour of his writing is evident here too - atmospheric, mysterious, wonderful use of words. However, I found the ending too inconclusive and I felt the character, Quirk, was lacking in vitality here. He is like a tired old man - if he is to "go on" he needs reviving!


The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves
The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves
by Stephen Grosz
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

4.0 out of 5 stars stories from the couch, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting little collection of a psychoanalyst's appraisal of some of his cases over the years. Easy reading and often poignant.


Mozart: Don Giovanni

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure undistracted music, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart: Don Giovanni (Audio CD)
Beautifully sung by all, with no need for all of the usually enjoyable trappings of theatre production. A most satisfying rendition of the great opera.

3.0 out of 5 stars quite interesting, 18 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a rather superficial view of a life. It would be of interest to theatre people with its rather gossipy style but Mr. Plummer makes the rather denigrating term "lovie" acceptable.

Price: £10.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact and fun., 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is great to have such an attractive case to carry these compact Paddington books. I actually prefer these little books to the original long and wordy version of Paddington.


A Treasury of Curious George (Curious George 8x8)
A Treasury of Curious George (Curious George 8x8)
by Margret Rey
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.15

4.0 out of 5 stars A good monkey tale., 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not brilliant writing but simple and fun and young children love it. The monkey, George, is endearing and his scrapes are not too frightening..
