1.0 out of 5 stars A real plodder and not one i could recommend., 6 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Fever at Dawn (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A man is given 6 months to live and decides to find a wife is the basis of this story which is based on a true event.For me the book was too plodding,to the point of being tedious and boring and i didn't like or enjoy it at all.I was amazed to see all the rave reviews for the book from professional critics and accept it could be that the book will appeal to others and be enjoyed.I personally think it's one to avoid.

3.0 out of 5 stars Recommended with some reservations., 3 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Outstanding (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book isn't a bad read but seemed to trail off as it headed towards the end.It was as though the Author didn't know where to go.I'd guessed how the storyline would tie up the pieces so it was a little predictable which was a shame.The book starts with a lot of promise and is very interesting but left me feeling it could've been so much better.It tells the story of Eve Sturidge,Head Teacher of an outstanding prep school who wants the school to be the best in the country at the cost of her home life,especially the relationship with her own daughters.When a prestigious couple choose Eve's school for their children,Eve's daughter accepts an internship in their Company and Eve is so wrapped up in her career,she doesn't sense what's happening around her.


The Antivirus Hacker's Handbook
The Antivirus Hacker's Handbook
by Joxean Koret
Edition: Paperback
Price: £22.32

4.0 out of 5 stars I found it difficult to understand in parts and i'm employed in IT., 27 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got an anti-virus? Think you're safe? Think again! The "bad guys" can often get past your security and infect your machine despite you feeling secure knowing that you've bought a 12 month subscription to your favourite anti-virus vendor. Luckily for you, your average computer nerd isn't going to have the skills to do this - this book isn't aimed at the average nerd. This book is aimed at programmers, penetration testers and security professionals.

The Antivirus hacker's handbook follows a tradition of 'hacker's handbooks' by giving you top quality content for a very reasonable price. This particular book is intense, even for the technical folk amongst us. I'm currently studying an advanced security master's degree and this book goes deeper than my master's degree has!

You'll learn why you would need to evade an anti virus (if you're an ethical white-hat that is!) and as the book goes on, you'll be presented with plenty of code which you can utilize in your test environment. I would strongly suggest that people pre-view the book and gage what level they're at before buying this book. I found it fairly hard going, but if this is your thing, you'll love it. Everything is well explained and flows well.

If you're a programmer/developer, security professional or university student and you're new to fuzzing, evading anti-virus or just simply curious about what the malicious hackers can do, it's well worth a read. If you're not one of the above, this will most definitely be a tough read!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book i've read in a very long time., 26 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If i could give this book a rating of 10 out of 5,i would.It really is a special book.Ella Dale is four years old and during a game of hide and seek at the park with her mother,Ella disappears.This book is a truly wonderful piece of writing that tugs at the heartstrings and the raw emotion this book evokes during the hunt for Ella is breath taking.The characters are all well formed and believable,the writing is so beautifully prolific,the tears flowed more than once and i cannot recommend this book highly enough.Absolutely wonderful,the book has now been passed onto my Daughter to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best mascara's i've ever used., 25 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great mascara by L'Oreal which is a black,black and is good for emphasising your lashes and giving a more dramatic look if you wish.A good wand which gives great coverage.The mascara comes in an attractive red and gold tube and i can highly recommend this mascara as one of my favourites.The price point is competitive and i think offers good value for money.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A lovely lipstick that comes in a gold tube that has a good twist action.A true beige colour that compliments my skin tone.It provides good coverage and is reasonably long lasting.A good lipstick that's suitable for everyday wear with a colour i found very flattering.I like it.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay,not a favourite., 25 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This eyeliner was a thin sponge tip which is great for applying the liner very precisely.However,it's not as pigmented as i would like.It wasn't particularly long lasting either though it's not a bad eyeliner.It's definitely better and far easier to use than a pencil.It's okay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Test over many days and very much enjoyed., 24 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I gave these to the two young lads next door and they used them most days giving them a good test.They liked them and the goals seemed durable enough to offer a long life.Very lightweight,they arrive in a protective,zipped bag.You take them out of the bag and they pop up.You can peg them into the ground and put them back into the bag when you've finished with them.For the hours of use they offer,i think they're very good value.

Carrying Albert Home: The Somewhat True Story of a Man, his Wife and her Alligator

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.08

2.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed the quality of wriring,the quirkiness of the story but for me,not enough of interest was happening,sorry., 22 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Author has a great style of writing and the book is quirky and though i wasn't engaging with the storyline,i wanted to read more.The story of an alligator being transported across country is based on fact,fiction or completely made-up,i don't know.However,after 75 pages,i lost all interest and couldn't continue.For others,i totally understand how they'd enjoy the book but it couldn't maintain my interest.The book is written by a master of language but the storyline isn't great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive food from a very impressive Company., 20 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Our westie,notoriously fussy,was going through a spell of not eating.4 years old and always fed on kibbles but us having to add meat for him to eat them.Lately,nothing was working so we tried this food not expecting him to eat it.Not only did he eat it with gusto,he licked the bowl clean.The food arrives in sealed silver trays,boxed in packs of ten and then further boxed with adequate packing by Amazon to ensure safe delivery.The food contains 30% Chicken,30% Lamb,20% rice and 20% Vegetables,all natural,no preservatives,flavours or colours.The Company prides itself on having full traceability of all its' ingredients from supplier to bowl with the emphasis on local suppliers,predominantly British farmers.Perfect.
