SUTRO! The High Ground
SUTRO! The High Ground

1.0 out of 5 stars Might be emjoyable if it was condensed..., 9 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I normally moan if a good book is too short, but here we have the premise of a good story weighed down with stodge. Gave up 10% of the way in!

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy from Nespresso direct, 28 Sept. 2013
The capsules are less than half the price when bought from the Nespresso website or one of their boutiques,mand are guaranteed to be fresh, and the genuine article. I am amazed anyone would buy from this source via Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun JCP serial read, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Part of a well researched (I work in the airline industry and there are no howlers in this story), and well written series. It's worth buying direct from her website ;-)

1.0 out of 5 stars Force closes, 29 Mar. 2013

This review is from: Tumblr (App)
Force closes every time you navigate away from home page. Have uninstalled and reinstalled three times. Useless app. Yet another reason to ditch my Fire HD!

5.0 out of 5 stars a nice change from the usual mm vampire stories, 18 Nov. 2012
good story line, spoilt on the odd occasion by silly editing errors...the descriptions of Paris early on in the book. A little like E M Forsters Maurice with vamps.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't draw you in....., 2 Oct. 2012
Barely got through the first chapter.....it's self indulgent twaddle. JKR is better at writing unoriginal, but enjoyable kids books & hobknobbing (& bankrolling!) New Labour has beens

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable., 1 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Will (Kindle Edition)
Appalling grammar and the writing style of a six year old. This author needs to give his ideas tho a ghost writer and employ an editor to make the most of a promising storyline rather than churning out this self published drivel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Prefer the iPad version, 15 Aug. 2012
The Kindle version costs the same as the Ipad version on a monthly basis, yet the iPad gets all the supplements & the full paper. I really hate reading books on the Ipad, and this is where the Kindle excels, but it's the opposite with magazines/newspapers.

fun storyline spoled by text that reads like it was translated by Babelfish from Swahili....poor/no editing has left lots of grammatical and spelling mistakes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter drivel & poorly edited....don't waste your money!, 19 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Glasgow, pocket guides (Paperback)
It is obvious that this guide has never been put together by someone who has little knowledge of this great city - comments about football violence & sectarianism could apply to a number of other cities in the UK, and show little understanding of the city. As for the comments about Glasgow being too rainy, then the authors clearly haven't been to the east coast of Scotland, or Ireland. I've just returned from 2.5 weeks in the Glasgow area & didn't see a spot!! Some of the comments about the cities inhabitants lifestyle also beggar belief, dredging up the old stereotype of a wholly deep fried diet, when the city boasts a cosmoplitan restaurant scene, that is more varied & better value than its near neighbour Edinburgh.
This guide has been put together by someone who has an axe to grind with the city, & I have shown them equal disrespect by donating this book to my local Fara charity store, as the author does not deserve to benefit from this poor work.
