The Gutter and The Grave
The Gutter and The Grave
Price: £2.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Early McBain, 7 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An early Ed McBain, and certainly not among his best works, nevertheless an entertaining read, as is always the case with McBain, whichever name he was writing under.


The Blind Alley

4.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten masterpieces of film noir, 7 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Blind Alley (Kindle Edition)
This is a book that anyone interested in film noir should add to their collection. Irritatingly it has a fair number of typos and careless mistakes. This is, I assume, the perils of being a small indie publisher - no money to spend on a good proof reader. Nevertheless Hinkson is opinionated and amusing, and opens one's eyes to various films one might have missed. He may not always be right, but his enthusiasm is infectious.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bridge too far?, 7 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bridge Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Not as good as either Bridge 1 or 2, but still pretty good. Sofia Helin's performance has lost its fine edge and seems cruder somehow. In general it seemed slightly tired, and the direction was more decorative and less focussed than previously. The look is, as ever, gorgeous, and compliments to the camera department. Nevertheless a gripping series and I would far rather have seen it than missed it.

Smashed by accident, replaced via Amazon. Difficult to review a replacement glass container in a useful way, so I shan't try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get a good night's sleep., 4 Jan. 2016

Delicious tea for bedtime! Sadly Sainsburys, in their wisdom, seem to have dropped the brand in the stores I use. luckily one can get them though Amazon, and delivered into the bargain.


Sophisticated Boom Boom: The Shadow Morton Story
Sophisticated Boom Boom: The Shadow Morton Story
Price: £13.58

5.0 out of 5 stars "Sophisticated Boom Boom", 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Shadow Morton was an innovative producer, respomsible for some great tracks at his height. I don't know how many tracks he produced, but the disc has 24, as the cover has it 'from 50s doo-wop to 70s glam punk'. Also included is a 48 page booklet with a 12,000 word essay and many photographs described as rare.

This was a Christmas present. Enjoyed by the recipient. Good news for them and the donor, me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A trip round 'the Block', 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anything written by Block is worth reading. This is only just what one might call a book, being a ragbag collection of introductions Block wrote for other authors, combined with various other bits of writing. He is, as usual, entertaining to read, and the occasional repetitions don't spoil the experience much. I bought it on Kindle, which means it cost very little, and was well worth the small price paid.


Fiskars Small QuikDrill Garden Drill
Fiskars Small QuikDrill Garden Drill
Price: £35.52

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn your drill!, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very useful bit of equipment. I bought it to drill post holes. the soil in question is fairly easy to drill except for large numbers of small stones. These are a nuisance as they manage to stop the srill going any further, the trick is to keep empting the soil drilled, and, when necessary, using a crowbar to free stones where necessary. It is not unnecessarily hard work - slow and steady will get the job done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Nordic Noir, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good series of Nordic Noir. Not quite as good as The Bridge, but very close. I missed the series on the BBC and enjoyed enormously watching the episodes one after another on a nightly basis.
