5.0 out of 5 stars DIY Tools, 7 July 2014
Excellent - the package arrived very swiftly - brilliant. I used it last evening and it satisfied everything I wanted it to. I'm about to purchase packs of spare saws. It was purchased through Free Postage via Super Saver.

The second George Gently book I've read, jumped from Det. Chief Inspector to Chief Superintendent. I enjoyed it very much.

The 1st & 2nd of George Gently books. Excellent, lots of words I was formerly unaware of, luckily I have a built-in dictionary. Have purchased the remaining books by this brilliant author. Watch this space!

3.0 out of 5 stars Child's toy, 4 Jun 2014
This review is from: Ambi Toys Humpty Dumpty (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It rolls...but the description said that it would roll back, well, it doesn't! It is sturdy enough, and is perfectly safe for toddlers to play with, but, a clean and empty can would do the job as well, so, I cannot see why anyone would waste their money on this. To paraphrase another well-known advertisement - "it does(n't) do what it says on the tin!" I cannot recommend it.


Mr Muscle Oxy Stain Remover Fresh Scent

Price: 7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Stain Remover, 4 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As we have two West Highland White Terrier puppies, we have tried many different stain and odour removers, but none come up to the performance of this particular one. It not only took out the stains of urine (while we were house training the boys), but completely eradicated the awful stench of urine. I cannot praise this item high enough - well done Mr. Muscle!

This review is from: 100 Hits - Opera (MP3 Download)
As a long time lover of opera, especially Italian Opera, I found this CD compilation 'right up my street' (or strada!), and it's firmly in my Kindle Fire so that I can listen to it at any time, day or night, and not restricted to my home or my car - awesome! Thank you Amazon, you're GREAT!

3.0 out of 5 stars Non Fiction book, 27 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As I have a life-long interest in "Intelligence" information, having begun with Ian Fleming, John Le Carré, Len Deighton et al, I thought that this book might give me an insight into the infamous Central Intelligence Agency; that it does, however, it has an awful lot of jargon, in particular a host of acronyms, which I found annoying. Usually I can read a book of this size in three sittings, but, as it is boring in many places, it took me about twenty eight days (or to be accurate - nights, as I read before going to sleep). I prefer books which hold my attention, this didn't. On the plus side, the redactions didn't impact on the information; and I learnt things which happened in the world that were unknown to 'the man in the street' - so it was useful in that respect. The author wrote the book like a text book (as we used to call books at school fifty-odd years ago), and he could have made it more readable if he had spiced up the various 'operations'.


The Queen Of Four Kingdoms
The Queen Of Four Kingdoms
Price: 3.66

3.0 out of 5 stars Historical Fiction, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book took me too long to read - if it hadn't been this author, i would have skipped many of the chapters out; it was interesting to read a different slant on this period of history - through the eyes of a Spanish lady who adopts France after marrying a French Duke. The descriptions of the various battles, in particular, Agincourt, were good to read, and what really happened to Joan of Arc, not the version by English historians - it's true what they say - history is written by the victors!

I really enjoyed this impression of J. R. R Tolkien's book - The Hobbit. I also enjoyed the first part of this trilogy, and am rerally looking forward to the last part when it is released on DVD.

I haven't yet taken it outside to try it out, although I have played with it in the house, and it looks alright. I shall come back and amend this review, after I have tried it in a proper environment, if I remember!
