3.0 out of 5 stars An annual event, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love 'The Best...' collections - but some are better than others. This collection hasn't had brilliant reviews but I am wondering if this is because of the lack of well-known writers. Anyway, we shall see - I haven't read any yet but the price was good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stories, 15 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Washing the Dead (Kindle Edition)
An absolute bargain on Kindle - it was free when I downloaded it! I know Ms Weeks and her writing is really good. She one a short story competition a few years ago - 'Mint Sauce' - and is well worth reading. This is a great book of short stories.

I haven't read these yet but I have listened to one being read - Richard Gwyn's, by the man himself - and it was really good. Looking forward to indulging further.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting book about a very interesting writer, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Raymond Carver's writing and Carol Sklenicka's biography gives the reader a very insightful overview of his life; of the issues that affected him; of the hardship he worked through. Sadly, Carver died very young, at 50, but it's amazing how much quality writing - prose and poetry - he produced in his lifetime. I haven't read all of this yet but it was sold for a very reasonable price and for that I am grateful. Thanks!

Original sounding song from a band I had never heard of before. Really good for exercise and a bit of a blast from the past in terms of style.

A great adaptor which was essential for Namibia and South Africa. It does what it says and there's not much else to be said really!

Fine for the price but not that great. However, for under £10.00, I can't moan really. Spend more if you want better quality - simple as that!

This review is from: The Very Best Of (Audio CD)
Who doesn't love Billy Ocean? I particularly like 'Red Light' and 'Loverboy' - quite cheesy but really gets you going!

2.0 out of 5 stars Small..., 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I returned these to Amazon as they were too small. I have some Hornet glasses and they are great, as well as some Square ones - but these were really tight and a disappointment. I was a bit annoyed that £6.00 was deducted for postage and packing when it obviously doesn't cost this to return them!

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of an acquired taste..., 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Binocular Vision (Kindle Edition)
Some of the stories in this collection are excellent - and I should say I haven't yet finished the book. I liked 'Allog' and really enjoyed 'ToyFolk'. Pearlman tends to focus on tales about American expats, some fighting a particular cause elsewhere. There is also quite a strong concentration on Jewish stories. The prose is lovely and I look forward to reading more.
