The story of Nelson: An adventure from history (Ladybird books)
The story of Nelson: An adventure from history (Ladybird books)
by Lawrence du Garde Peach
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars THE LIFE OF NELSON, 13 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent book. Simply narrates the incredible life of Nelson at a children's level. Beautiful illustrations support the text and as a child (and now as an adult) I like books with pictures. The book will be republished in January 2015 but my copy is from the late 50's but in good condition.

3.0 out of 5 stars The First Doctor Who, 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD was a must for me, as I have been an avid Doctor Who fan since the first episode in 1963. The play is about the creation of the first Doctor Who series and the casting of William Hartnell as the first Doctor. The play covers the story well but finds it hard to hold ones interest. Not sure if the DVD is worth the high asking price. Five pounds would be more appropriate. I expect the DVD will be a hit amongst Doctor Who fans but of not much interest to those outside this category. The DVD does have some extra material which is interesting to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pre Cold war spy drama, 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spies of Warsaw [DVD] (DVD)
An exciting spy thriller set in pre 2nd World War Warsaw. Lots of tension, a love interest and some unexpected twists. A variation on the usual Cold war theme. David Tennant gives a good performance as a French intelligence officer. He runs into German and Russian spies who are populating pre war Warsaw. First time I have seen him outside Doctor Who.
Recommended for any body who likes a spy drama.

4.0 out of 5 stars Applied Mathematics, 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book, as the title implies, is concerned with applying mathematic principles to physical practical problems. The book has many worked examples and exercise questions at the end of each chapter. This book is recommended for any person interested in this subject whether a student or like me someone with an interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars A useful Raspberry Pi component, 21 Feb 2014

The Raspberry Pi computer has only two USB ports. For that reason this powered USB hub is essential equipment for the Raspberry Pi. Mine was easy to set up and for that reason I love it and give the USB hub a five star rating.


Hasbro - Pirates Caribbean Buccaneer

3.0 out of 5 stars A Salty game of bucaneering on the high seas., 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the modern version of Buccaneer which I played in my youth. The game is essentially the same as the original but with a Pirates of the Caribbean theme. The board is more interesting than the original. Three of the islands are represented by plastic island models. Two of the islands are constructed to hold card packs which is useful. The third island has slots for treasure and crew cards as per the rules requirement, The ports are represented by plastic models which add flavor to the game but have a tendency to come away from the board during play if the board is moved slightly accidently. The treasure is disappointingly represented by tokens. However the tokens slip conveniently into the ships hold although it is a bit of a fiddle to get the tokens into the ship's hold. The game plays well and is just as good as the original. I prefer the original Buccaneer game and give this game three stars for that reason. Younger players will like this game better and will probably give the game a four or five star rating. I am sure whoever plays this game will have hours of salty fun. I recommend the game.

Price: £2.77

4.0 out of 5 stars 10 POLYHEDRON DICE, 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Normal dice have six sides. This is a set of dice with more than six sides. There are two dice of each type, four sided, eight sided, ten sided, twelve sided and twenty sided. The dice are well made and easy to read, that is why I like the dice and gave a rating of four stars. These dice are required for unusual games such as Dungeons and dragons.
