The Sea-Story Megapack: 30 Classic Nautical Works
The Sea-Story Megapack: 30 Classic Nautical Works
Price: £0.39

5.0 out of 5 stars The real thing, 23 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the real thing - not Hornblower or Ramage but the "Warts and all" face of early sail.
Sometimes silly but always atmospheric; the descriptions of life in 19th century St Pierre (& Miquelon) make one very glad we live in much less demanding circumstances!!!


The Third R. Austin Freeman Megapack: 19 Mystery Tales of Dr. Thorndyke & Others
The Third R. Austin Freeman Megapack: 19 Mystery Tales of Dr. Thorndyke & Others
Price: £0.65

4.0 out of 5 stars Forerunner of of modern forensic detection., 23 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting window on the world of Victorian society where class and erudition are all. Writing style is very old fashioned, a bit pedantic but very clear and grammatically correct - though not tediously so.
Thorndyke is a bit of a Holmes lookalike but much more scientifically oriented. The plots are well thought out and, I was told by my old science teacher, the technicalities of the scientific analyses are accurate.
Not James Bond or Sam Spade but enjoyable precursor of modern forensic detection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the TV adaptations, 23 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good indeed; I enjoyed the TV series but this is so much better with positive character development and a much more complicated plot.
I shall buy the others in the series to read whilst I am on holiday!

Not really my cup of tea! Seems to be Super-stud rips off bad guys and looks after the victims. Lost interest halfway through and ditched it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Standard UV Filter, 3 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems to work OK for me. I presume the more expensive options produce somehow superior images but this does all I require and it seems unnecessary to spend more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheapo wide angle lens attachment, 3 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At this price, one should not expect too much. Produces adequate documentation shots but has no pretensions to equal the image qualities of the much more expensive dedicated wide angle lenses.
Excellent for my purposes and very useful in its place.
