1.0 out of 5 stars Is this animal-friendly?, 1 Dec 2014
This stuff is often produced in Vietnam by keeping the civet cats cramp-caged in appalling conditions. They are force-fed coffee beans and NOTHING ELSE - unnatural and cruel. Please check on the company's animal welfare policies - if they exist - before you buy. If you like drinking poo, that is.

Indian Vintage Fabric Saree Pure Silk Floral Printed Women Wrap Dress Craft Fabric Sari Home Decor Pink Art 5YD

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This arrived quickly considering it came from India - within a week of ordering. I am delighted with the sari: it is even prettier than I expected, in perfect condition, and nice and clean although of 'used' quality. I have draped it around my bedroom window in place of a curtain; I have a venetian blind which looked a litle cold before, and now the window looks lovely. My husband can't believe I got all that silk so cheaply.

2.0 out of 5 stars Testosterone, 14 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really tried hard with this, as I enjoy 'historical thrillers', which is what it purported to be.

However, after several ultra-detailed accounts of fights, poisonings and diverse deaths, I gave up. It's very macho to the point of, well, enough's enough. Quite well written, but totally lacking in depth. The only female character - if that's not too strong a word - in the part I read was a potential rape-victim, naked, quivering and helpless, just waiting for Our Hero to rescue her. Perhaps later she develops into a strong female protagonist, but I doubt it.

The reek of testosterone was too much for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent bargain, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is very good - just a little too big, but I expected that. I didn't realise the front was so low-cut, however, so I recommend you don't buy a size larger, as I did: after a few lengths I was flashing my considerable cleavage, and then some, and had to keep hoiking the cossie up. But the quality is excellent, and it is still good after many swims.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, 25 April 2014

These are good, straightforward crochet hooks, nicely made and strong. A few rough snaggy edges, soon fixed with a nail file. They are exactly what I wanted - and the 'cottom' case is handy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply excellent, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a must-read. It is dated, obviously, but it's still a riveting story with eye-opening detail about the atrocities of US slavery. This gives the lie to Uncle Tom and the 'happy workers' myth put out by those who try to brush the whole thing under the carpet. Essential reading for any complacent Daily Mail reader.

Keeper of the Bride
Keeper of the Bride
Price: £4.19

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a thriller or crimmi, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered this on the strength of having read - and enjoyed - a couple of Gerritsen's later criminal-patholgist books. Unfortunately this was from her earlier stuff, the nurses 'n' romance era. The plot was quite good, but the lurve and sex rather got in the way, and there were a couple of embarrassing bits that wasted several pages with excruciating detail of lurving... Irritating, really.


Dead Man's Time (Roy Grace Book 9)
Dead Man's Time (Roy Grace Book 9)
Price: £3.32

3.0 out of 5 stars So-so, 6 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seems Peter James is running out of steam - or at least his Roy Grace series is. I found this rather dull compared to the previous Grace books, and it seems cliched, with repeated themes - black pal being stereotypical token, perfect girlfriend in jeopardy AGAIN, ex-wife growing ever weirder... Grace himself is becoming tiresome with his pop-psychology and ability to 'detect' lies by eye movement (a disproved theory); at times it reads like a NLP text.

Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional, 6 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mornings in Jenin (Kindle Edition)
This is an exceptional book. Having visited Jenin twice, once in 1971 and again in 78, I claim some small familiarity with the town and the subject matter, and so I found the book enthralling. Even if I hadn't known the place I would still have loved it, as it is a beautifully written and enchanting story - one which should be told more widely. It gives a point of view which rarely gets coverage in the world media, and while some of it may seem extreme, it is authentic. I know: I have been there, albeit not at crisis times.

Read it. It would make a superb and moving film, but one that will never be made. I urge you: read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks funny but is great, 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does look a little odd compared to a traditional cozzie, but it is so very comfortable to swim in - no chafing anywhere embarrassing, and no resistance to slow me down. I don't look very elegant in it, but then I look even worse in a cut-leg thing! Several women have asked me where I got it, and one or two asked if I was a 'professional' swimmer (whatever that is!)...

I do wish it had a bit more shaping in the breast area, as it does turn mine into a big round uniboob; nevertheless, I love it, and am going to order another as spare.
