5.0 out of 5 stars First Class Read, 9 Oct 2013

Beautifully written and totally absorbing. Kay creates a world in which the reader becomes immersed. Far better than Lions of Al-Rassan, the only other of his books I have read so far.

A really useful book. I have been researching my family history for about two years and this the first book that I have bought. I have found several really good leads and two brick walls are down already. You may get there eventually without the book, but you will certainly get there far quicker with it.

Ridiculous story, poorly written and extremely boring. Why anyone spent time translating this I cannot imagine. I rarely give upon a book, but this was one of them.

An excellent resource, especially if your ancestors lived in Yorkshire. Two brick walls down already. Looks expensive, but worth it. Only downsides- runs on Windows only, not on Mac OSX and the DVD has to be in the drive all the time.

Would anyone really name a submarine 'Dried Cod'? Monotonous and non-involving. I will not be reading any more books by this author.

An honest and straightforward account of life on a U-boat from the lower deck. Good reading too. Also gives an insight into the thinking of the average German in WW2.

Monotonous documentary style with lightly drawn characters. Factually correct on submarines etc. I have read history books that were more engaging.

Just as good as the earlier books in the series. Only downside- Will Martin ever finish the saga? If he does, will I still be around to read it?

4.0 out of 5 stars TRI-FOLD DOG RAMP, 6 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to use, solid and strong (I sat on it before trying a dog on it). Will stand up behind front seat when folded, but top sandpaper surface very abrasive and exposed both sides when folded so could damage car interior. I looked at made-to-measure bags but they cost nearly as much as the ramp! Using the box it came in. Tried with three dogs so far. Dogs less nervous if there is a person standing on each side of the ramp. Not perfect but the best I have seen so far and reasonably priced.

Well up to Grisham's usual high standard. Somewhat different to many previous books- not much lawyering. Keeps you guessing and a nice twist near the end.
