Sunshine on Scotland Street (44 Scotland Street Book 8)
Price: £5.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Top of the class, 11 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Characters develop, underlying tensions emerge, new relationships develop all with the same light, humorous touch as the rest of the series. Captures the essential elements of living in Edinburgh to a tee.

4.0 out of 5 stars A conclusion?, 22 May 2013

Excellent novel which ties all the loose ends together from the previous novels in the series, although could there be a further twist yet?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fruity, zesty and makes the perfect cocktail, 20 Sep 2012
Wow, tried this on it's own and loved it, then added ice and took it from there. I now substitute it for whisky in all my favourite whisky cocktails and it is much better as it doesn't have that overpowering whisky influence.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable journey through some of the best whiskies in the world, 19 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well written book which is easy to read and entices you along the way. The compact format means that you can easily slip it into your pocket, just to make sure that you are ordering the right dram! or as I have done, take it on your phone in the Kindle format - brilliant.
I have only, so far, tried a small number of the whiskies listed but am looking forward to completing the journey and finishing all 101 of them - slange

The battery is fiddly to fit and requires some patience but the cost saving compared to sending the ipod to apple for replacement is well worth it.

What it says on the label is what you expect to get and what it delivers. Don't always agree with Jim's reviews but that is life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grab a good dram and dip into this ( a few times before you die), 1 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Soon as I got home last night found tha there was a copy of this book waiting for me on the door mat. In eager anticipation I ripped open the Amazon pack and extracted the surprisingly (I thought that it would be thicker) but welcoming site of a slim book that it will be easy to open and browse.
Not wanting to waste another minute, except to put on the kettle (well fill with water and press the switch ), I read the introduction - great! Easy to read, says lots of things I agree with about scoring systems and awards and making whisky affordable so that it can be drunk and not put on display.
Have read around 12 of the whiskies that I know well- they read well and encourage the reader to try them and they come with just the right amount of background information - the interested reader can always find out more information on a specific distillery by looking elsewhere Glenglassaugh: A Distillery Reborn.
From what I have read it is going to be an easy to read and most enjoyable as well as informative - well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, 14 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bag is of good quality with strong stitching which means that it takes plenty of stuff cramped into it with no problems. There is good padding for the laptop and plenty of room for my 15" model. Zips are robust and the main compartment zip will accept a padlock. It looks and feels more professional than a standard backpack and is not out of place in an office environment. Overall I am very pleased with this.
