Holy War: 3/3 (The Saladin Trilogy) by Hight, Jack (2013) Paperback
Holy War: 3/3 (The Saladin Trilogy) by Hight, Jack (2013) Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 6 Feb. 2016
.

This tome makes for an excellent ending to an enthralling to trilogy that traces Saladdin’s life. The author seems to wrap himself in dialogue; he enjoys the interaction and word play between his characters. It is nice to see the way in which the interaction is being created. At over four hundred pages this novel does take some small commitment, I would not call it a 'light read'. That said it is readable and if you like your fiction with a heavy dose of History then this is the book for you. What is also nice, in-deed more helpful is the fact that more detail and background information is available on the internet, via the book’s website. So if you wanted to know why Muslim prayer is five times a day, the Author's web page explains some rather interesting facts about this, the eye opener for this reader was the fact that some early Christian prayer and tradition showed great similarity to the way Islam prayer is performed, I am just illustrating one small thread. You do not necessarily need all these bits of information, as the book carries itself well. From my perspective all these little nuggets of information made the novel that more interesting. All in all a good series of books, for my tastes the book rated a good five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good quality Journal, 6 Feb. 2016
.

I have come across some cheaply made notebooks, with horrible paper quality and an overall finish that fell apart in a month or so. I was originally quite conservative in my expectation with this item.

This is a good notebook and goes “above and beyond” what I expected. I tend to use either a gel pen or a fountain pen when writing. My peripatetic life style and ensuing travel means that any journal will end up getting some “knocks”. Therefore, my daily journaling needs need to live up to some high standards, some consumer quality paper goods do not seem to be able to match, this need, most of the time. This notebook completely surprised me. The quality of the paper is good enough that my thickly laden fountain pen with fine-medium nib is capable of writing on it without worrying about smudges or spill over into the back of the page. The spine and the basic finish and binding are good, with no niggles or any weak points that I can identify, which could cause premature wear and tear.

All in all this is a good quality journal that is recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked great for us, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HG Mould Spray (DIY & Tools)
We had quite bad mould, in terms patches of black mould on an internal cupboard, where one side of the wall was an exterior wall – due to lack of ventilation between a warm bedroom and the cold wall there was a build of moisture and hence the mould.

It was so easy use – just spray on, leave for half an hour and no more mould.

Very happy with this product and have no hesitation in recommending it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Affordable, design and does a good job, 6 Feb. 2016

.

The USB drive has a good and designed form factor, it is slim black drive features plastic construction, which for me feels somewhat less robust then it could have been (my only real negative with this drive). It comes in a matte finish and a glossy finish on the slider that pushes the USB plug in and out – so there are no caps to deal with and drive “head” has reasonable protection. It is small enough that it will not “crowd out” neighbouring USB ports or is weighty for that matter.

It has FAT32 formatting; the SanDisk Extreme works with Windows (Windows 7, Vista, and XP). Included on the drive is a copy of SanDisk’s SecureAccess.

For me this drive is affordable, and good design.

This is a lovely smelling cedar-wood aroma shower gel. It lathers up really well too, and you don't need to use much at all. This is a really nice and easy to use gel, which leaves your body feeling clean and fresh all day.

I would recommend This ManCave shower gel, a real nice product.

Non greasy formula, that leaves your skin feeling hydrated and protected for the day ahead. It's quickly absorbed, non-shiny and it lasts for ages. This is a nice moisturiser, with a good smooth texture and scent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Winston Churchill was an inspirational statesman, writer, orator and leader, 4 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
.

In late May 1940, against the backdrop of the Dunkirk evacuation and the unstoppable German advance, Churchill unheeded calls for peace talks with Hitler. With the defeat and of France - Great Britain stood alone, for a time, unaided against Hitler’s of vision of a new Europe at behest of the Third Reich, like others this period in history has held great interest for me. Churchill’s premiership of Great Britain, at this most troubling and challenging time, is full of so many fascinating stories. Churchill was a unique statesman he is one of those leaders that fascinates me, therefore I couldn’t resist this book written by his great-grandson.

First elected to the parliament in 1900, Churchill played a dynamic role in British politics for more than five decades until he resigned as prime minister in 1955. The author stresses the prominence of his legacy by including pictorials of Churchill partaking in major historical events such as the Yalta Conference in 1945. This book contains some interesting photographs, although nothing that has not been published before. There are quotes from Churchill, his family, friends, and colleagues which appear during the course of the book.

Churchill led an incredible life and reading segments of it were informative and stimulating. While there is plenty about Churchill and his time leading up to the two World Wars and after, there was a surprising amount that was written about Hitler and the Nazi Regime. It is understandable – as it helped to explain more about Churchill: his incentives, what encouraged him on any given path of action, and how his religious faith played a role in his life. The weakest section of this book, by far, is the last. This section, in my humble opinion, should have been either cut or edited. The overall narrative would have made for a much stronger ending. The "modern day" aspect of this narrative, it just felt out of place, disjointed and somewhat awkward. Nevertheless, despite that, I enjoyed this latest perspective of Churchill and his life. I thought most sections were strong and well written, chiefly those about Churchill's earlier years.

Living things are organisms that display the key characteristics of life. These features include the facility to grow, reproduce, take in and use energy, expel waste, and respond to the environment. Habitats are where particular kinds of plants and animals might be found; to this end this title the outline makes a good use of monochrome palette, font size and visuals.

Title is targeted is well targeted CGP, which has done a very good job of covering each of the mandatory aspects of the syllabus in a fitting way and is recommended.
