1.0 out of 5 stars Boring even for an enthusiast of the this kind of history books., 1 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It says gripping read on the cover. Infact it is very boring, I tried to read it several times, but each time failed. The story is fantastic Im sure, but the writer would never have got it published if his name were not sackville. Probably the surname also makes the positive reviews. It is still a class society, sadly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely great spying series, 5 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just have to admire this old tv series, which we ordered recently. It is so much better than the tv series that they play nowadays on tv. Nowadays its all about making horrible scenes and having that 10 prosent sex scenes in the series when with this series every episode is a nice piece of work, which is not so calculated as in todays series.

So buy this if you want intelligent storylines and honest directing.


Baby's Very First touchy-feely Colours Play book (Baby's Very First Books)
Baby's Very First touchy-feely Colours Play book (Baby's Very First Books)
by Fiona Watt
Edition: Board book
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Really nice, only one but..., 6 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
And the but is that it has some flip-flop pictures, which get torn off really easy and are not suitable for a small child.
But otherwise it really is wonderful, looks like a jewel of a book I would say. I really like the style of the pictures and it has just a perfect amount of different textures and holes and such for the baby to touch. And I guess it does not matter so much if some flipflops will be torn as it still remains a nice book. The 11 months old likes it and I would think it would be very nice up to two years or so.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice "babys very first" book, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is nice, but it really is babys first book as it is a bit too simple for my 10 months old who loved a similar book of same publisher as a 9 months old. Now it is just too boring it seems. But i still recommend it, but only for a smaller baby.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, not so nice pictures, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Now the idea is so fine and nice. And also the fingerpuppet. But the picturestyle is not to my liking, it is not so clear, maybe therefore my child also doesnt like this one so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly imaginative fantacy, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bone Season (Hardcover)
Stunningly imaginated work of fantacy. Its a great thing this world contains people who have this rich imagination and can write it down too. Leaves hope that fantacy genre is not only "the old masters".

5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice. Would recommend, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I liked this a lot. Very fun cultural history. It is easily written so it works also for those not so accutomed to history books. A good book to read if you love f ex downton abbey and want to linger in that kind of world although this book covers a larger period of time and from an american angle.
