Hallmark Avengers Brother Card Best Guys - Medium
Hallmark Avengers Brother Card Best Guys - Medium

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy birthday from Iron Man, The Hulk and Thor..., 15 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Really bright Marvell Avengers themed birthday card (Iron Man, The Hulk & Thor) to give to a brother. Quite a good size and the colourful exterior is matched by an equally colourful interior topped off with a brief but apposite sentiment. Good quality Hallmark card and envelope.


The Couple Next Door
The Couple Next Door
by Shari Lapena
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.09

2.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelmed..., 15 May 2016
This review is from: The Couple Next Door (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I just couldn't like this novel. I found the story to be too contrived, there were parallels almost with the disappearance of another high profile news case: Parents go to dinner party and check every half hour on their child (in this case via a baby monitor) for that child to disappear?! I just felt that the author was trying too hard, with a story that wasn't quite working, to make it work, and it didn't. It's not often that I struggle to finish books that I review, but on this occasion I just couldn't find anything to like about the story or the characters and did actually give up. Sorry.


Streets of Darkness (Detective Harry Virdee 1)
Streets of Darkness (Detective Harry Virdee 1)
by A. A. Dhand
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.09

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting start..., 15 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Dhand has taken observations of inner city tensions in communities in Bradford and woven a particularly good police procedural that shows that not just the Scandinavians can have flawed and suspended policemen fighting crime and their own personal demons. Virdee is an excellent character to build a series on, and I'm not overly fond of British police procedurals, one I warmed to throughout the book as he went about regaining his job and fighting all the malevolent forces waging war on each other in a very bleak dystopian view of Bradford's council estates and diverse communities. It will be interesting to see where this road leads.


Hallmark Star Wars Grandson Card Full Throttle - Medium
Hallmark Star Wars Grandson Card Full Throttle - Medium
Price: £2.30

5.0 out of 5 stars If you've a grandson who is a Star Wars fan..., 15 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I loved this, but more importantly when he saw it on the desk, so did my grandson - effectively the target audience, who is, along with most of his classmates devouring anything with a Star Wars theme. He stated that he would be happy to have that as a birthday card (hint!). The Star Wars theme continues inside with a message from Luke Skywalker. Excellent quality card and envelope.


My Family Travel Map (Lonely Planet Kids)
My Family Travel Map (Lonely Planet Kids)
by Lonely Planet Kids
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, poor execution..., 15 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is potentially such a good idea that I would applaud it, however...what I find really frustrating are the same things as others who have reviewed this and my grandson's comments have also echoed. The stickers are too big for the maps and the maps are too small. Lonely Planet have missed a trick here in that they could have produced one of these books for each of the continents and made the maps bigger with more detail on them. Currently my grandson travels in GB and western Europe (France, Germany & Holland mainly) and for him to place the stickers on where he's been over the last three years means that there is such an accumulation of stickers overlapping each other as to make the map incomprehensible, that's when he can identify exactly where he's been on the very poorly detailed map. Maybe this is an idea that LP can rethink and go down the route of producing individual country/continent travel maps with a bit more detail. Good idea, currently poor execution.


Star Wars Graphics
Star Wars Graphics
Price: £12.08

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost everything you wanted to know about Star Wars in graphic form..., 15 May 2016
This review is from: Star Wars Graphics (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great little book for filling in gaps in your trivia knowledge of nerdiness for most things Star Wars. Bright colourful graphics throw information at you from every page; from the comparison of the height of each character, to where the planets are in relation to each other and honestly just about everything inbetween. There is no storyline here, just a constant flow of information about the Star Wars universe, which may not appeal to some but did appeal to me and my grandson. Enjoyed every page of it.


Hallmark Disney Muppets Brother Card Have Some Fun - Medium
Hallmark Disney Muppets Brother Card Have Some Fun - Medium
Price: £1.75

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice fun card..., 14 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Bright and fun muppet card to give to a brother of any age. My two oldest sons still swap cards like this and they're around the thirty mark. Greeting wise inside it's a bit on the sparse side, but still a fun and entertaining card.


Managing Depression with Mindfulness For Dummies
Managing Depression with Mindfulness For Dummies
by Robert Gebka
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.08

3.0 out of 5 stars One of a number of mindfulness guides out there..., 14 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There is a burgeoning market of self-help and advice books on the subject of mindfulness and it's impact on potentially treating depression. This 'Dummies' guide takes you through the concept of mindfulness and how it relates to the treatment of depression in easy to understand language. The better 'dummies' guides take you from knowing nothing to a working understanding of the subject and I would say that this 'dummies' guide is pretty typical in that respect. As with another reviewer I would say that depression is one of those illnesses though that you can learn to control. In my years of working with people who experience depression and my own experience of it, depression never goes away, you just get better at recognising the signs, and you have better coping mechanisms and crisis plans in place to deal with a relapse, but you're never entirely free of it. Mindfulness is being touted these days as the 'cure all' for a number of mental illness, it isn't, but it is a useful tool in some instances to focus on specific issues.


Hallmark Disney Mickey and Minnie Anniversary Wife Card Heres to Us - Small
Hallmark Disney Mickey and Minnie Anniversary Wife Card Heres to Us - Small
Price: £2.30

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much going for it unless you're a fan of Disney..., 14 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a card celebrating an anniversary it's OK. If I gave my wife this though I don't think she'd be that impressed to be honest. It's a bit understated and the 'Here's to us on our special day' verse inside is brief to say the least.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely card for a granddaughters first birthday..., 14 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Really nice and pink card for a granddaughters first birthday. Delightful illustration on the cover with Piglet suspended from a balloon looking down on Pooh. The inscription on the inside is also very nicely written. The whole card would make a very nice keepsake for a child to look back on in later life. This is also quite a big card at approximately 9" square.
