The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul

3.0 out of 5 stars Bookclub read, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed reading it and did so as a member of a book club. However I felt that the ending was rather rushed and a bit to much a `happy ending`, with quite a lot unanswered.

A book which somehow manages to make a `seedy` subject readable. The author comes across as a nice enough fellow, but one who is fairly self-centered and sex obsessed. It has been critised as a book of `fiction`, which I feel is unjustified.If you are interested in some aspects of the lives of the `old` film stars it may be of interest to others, but in general is a bit of a none event.

A different and interesting book that highlights Shamanism amongst the Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert. It is well written and presented, but I found the family history and regional history. on accasion, a bit `dry`. I also still do not know why the author is `banned` from entering Botswana, a point I may have missed.However overall an interesting book sympathetically written.

Though a simle idea it can be quite effective. It is however expensive for what it is and I have found that it regularly deflates itself over a day or two.I have tested it to see if it has a leak, but cannot find one, but it does mean blowing it up every few days. When it is inflated it works very well and the room feels a lot warmer. It is a pity that the one I have cannot be relied upon. I also feel that for such an expensive item it should be possible to exchange if faulty.

This review is from: Thunderheart [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
An interesting film about a man who has some Sioux blood in him, who is strongly denying his heritage. He is sent as a member of the F.B.I. to investigate a murder on an `Indian` reservation.
I found it a good film which held my attention easily and one I enjoyed watching. Though there is no sudden embracing of his `indian blood` he does end up no longer denying it.

A film typical of its era, fairly superficial on its subject, but stimulates enough interest to watch to completion.The colour was good and the `Stars` entertaining.

3.0 out of 5 stars Native American, 1 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A book purported to have been written verbatim from Black Hawks verbal statements,which on reading is difficult to believe, as words and phrases are used which I find it difficult to accept that a Native American would use. It is however an interesting narrative and gives a picture of his life and battles. If interested in the life ot the Native American, not an essential read, but entertaining

4.0 out of 5 stars Good reading, 1 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A small book about a small woman which contained a gigantic story, with powerful descriptions of her experiences, which were not exagerated and were simply stated.
A story of simple faith and determination, which occasionally was hard to read as the story being told was of cruel events and great hardship.
Recommended to all.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lovely light perfume, which was bought as a gift and really appreciated.Delivery was prompt before Christmas and the cost 10 cheaper than on other sites.It is always a risk buying perfumes for others, but in this case was just what was wanted, even though it had not been sampled before.

I bought a 3 in 1 throw/cosy wrap fleece blanket. Though a bit more expensive it has proved to be well worth the extra. It is body length and keeps me lovely and warm when sitting or walking around the house. I readily recommend others to purchase what is a very effective luxurious fleece blanket.
Delivery was quick and postage not excessive.
