by James Goss
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £16.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead good, 18 Jan. 2013
This is a wonderful story which is superbly read. The characters in this story are as good as the story itself. It has a good pace and the best ending sentences ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars A haunting story, 18 Jan. 2013
This is an excellent ghost story set in the Dark Shadows universe. It requires no prior knowledge of the Dark Shadows back story.


The Poisoned Soul (Dark Shadows)
The Poisoned Soul (Dark Shadows)
by James Goss
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Soul searching, 18 Jan. 2013
This is a really good story and an excellent exploration of the psyche of Ms Trask. Can stand alone if you don't know the Dark Shadows back story although clearly there is a richness which comes with knowing about Ms Trask's early childhood and father and with knowing about her relationship with Ms Faye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bingo!, 18 Jan. 2013
I enjoyed the characterisation in this book and that Annie was, for me, centre stage. Bingo playing vampires - what's not to love.


Le Charcutier Anglais: Tales & Recipes of a Gamekeeper Turned Charcutier
Le Charcutier Anglais: Tales & Recipes of a Gamekeeper Turned Charcutier
by Berry Marc-Frederic
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful recipes, 25 Dec. 2012
Buying this book for my husband for his birthday (Nov 2012) was a good decision. We had a buffet of charcuterie for Christmas Eve, my favourite of which was the wild rabbit terrine. Excellent recipes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying and entertaining, 9 Nov. 2012
I found the story-telling enjoyable and the crime-detecting satisfying. Although short there's space in the main murder mystery for insightful tales about Lady Serpent, giving her character interest. In time-honoured manner the key suspects are introduced, interviewed and examined for the benefit of the audience. There's humour in this and i liked the not entirely comfortable working relationship between Lady Serpent and the General.

If oversights in proof reading trouble you then you may find some distractions in this text. But it would be a shame to miss out on a good story for the sake of the odd character being settled ternderly on a couch.

And best of all: There's a great big clue hidden in plain sight.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'No, that's not right' - but it is excellent., 28 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great, fun book. It's well-written and beautifully illustrated. Great for those who already know a lot about Dr Who and those who know little. From the start the authors say their top 100 will be wrong from the perspective of everyone else, (they understand fandom as well as the programme).
