3.0 out of 5 stars Freezing solution, 25 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SCRABBLE (App)
Not perfect as it should be sorted by designers but you can unfreeze the game by touching the skip button and that allows you to continue during the game. Have not solved the freezing at the end of the game. You have to go away and come back to it later.

2.0 out of 5 stars Saccharine sweet holiday read, 24 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Waiting for Summer (Paperback)
I bought this book on the basis of the reviews on amazon and have been very disappointed . Beautiful, 40 something widow married to handsome husband who dies while playing away with secretary. Widowed but still stunning and successful in her career,Sylvie is cossetted and wooed by every man she meets in her beautiful world where the sun is always shining and money is no object. Couldn't care less what happens in book II to the beautiful, tortured Sylvie and lover whose brain cells are in his underpants. Proof reading carried out by an eleven year old. YUK

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for any fan of racing, 10 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a shame that Henry Cecil does not feel this book fairly represents his life as I felt it was a warts and all account of a remarkable man who has met with fortune and misfortune with good grace, humour and at times great courage. Brough Scott has captured the essence of the man and portrayed the best and worst of times in flat racing politics and given us an insight in to the egos that have had such an inluence on the sport. Scott's style is a bit awkward at times but it is difficult to stop a book on such an illustrious career turning into a series of lists of great wins and near misses. Ironically the most compelling part of the book showed Cecil at his lowest and made his journey back into the light with the great Frankel all the more amazing. Production budgets mean the black and white pictures are very poor which is one downside of an otherwise great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another beautifully written masterpiece, 14 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Kaspar: Prince of Cats (Hardcover)
My eight year old daughter and I are devoted Michael Morpurgo fans and Kaspar is undoubtedly our favourite so far. Beautifully illustrated and told with great empathy for the human and animal subjects. In all his stories he tackles big issues for children to understand and the portrayal of the sinking of the Titanic is no exception. Even so he kept us both gripped and the ending brought a lump to my throat. Whether you are a devotee or a first time reader you will not be disappointed.
