5.0 out of 5 stars McEwan at his most subtle, 21 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saturday (Kindle Edition)
This is a book which I read a few years ago and it has haunted me ever since - hence my decision to buy it on Kindle.
As with all McEwan stories the conclusion is unpredictable. A seemingly trivial occurrence of road rage leads to a terrifying encounter, which ends in a neatly satisfying outcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful stuff, 13 Oct. 2014

I was a little sceptical as to how effective this stuff was going to be on our very old and scuffed green leather suite. The result was superb! It's completely rejuvenated the suite, and the colour was an exact match. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job beautifully, 27 Sept. 2014

Excellent, strong tool. Watch out for spurting apple juice as the blades go in, but that's a small price to pay for a truly efficient job

The good features of this product are the plentiful zipped compartments. My only criticism is that the shoulder strap is too narrow, and could easily be cut in a snatch and run robbery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for DSLR beginners, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this camera for astrophotography, with which I've so far had moderate success, but then, I am still learning.

However, I've also taken some nice terrestrial shots, and recommend this camera for the DSLR beginner. The supplied lens is good for close-ups, but you would need a separate lens for zoom. However, you can zoom in closely when looking at your shots, and the movie facility is adequate.

Please note no SD card is supplied, and there is a carrying strap, but no case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought this so that my non-cooking husband could prepare easy meals while I recover from surgery, and we've already used it a few times in advance. It easily accomodates a meal for 3 or 4 people, and is clean and efficient. My husband loves it already.

The only thing I'd caution against is searing or softening the ingredients in the actual pan, since it has no proper handles, and slips about on the hob. Use a separate pan for this process, and transfer the food into the cooking vessel before starting the slow cook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overall view, 1 May 2014

This is written in a friendly, instructive way, but it deals with every shooting mode except Manual, which is the mode I'm most interested in! having said that, the author covers all the other subjects comprehensively, and you can't argue with the price.


Late Roman Towns in Britain
Late Roman Towns in Britain
Price: £20.05

5.0 out of 5 stars A new and fresh approach, 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The long believed thesis that structural alterations in late Roman buildings in Britain denoted decline is blown to pieces in this excellent and thorough examination of Roman towns at the end of the occupation.

The author shows how re-interpretation can produce evidence which encompasses not only exisiting British religious practice, but the striking efforts made to keep civic life going with diversification after the legions withdrew.

I have one complaint: I bought this book on Kindle, and the non-photographic illustrations are very poor, in some cases totally illegible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent historical novel, 11 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Augustus: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
This is a novel which works on all levels, both as an authoritative account of the life of the Emperor Augustus and his contemporaries, and as a work of literature. It is beautifully written, and the events of the period are conveyed in the form of letters written by and to the main historical personages associated with Augustus.

This book will appeal to all lovers of Roman history, but it also works on a purely human level.
