A Natural History of Ghosts: 500 Years of Hunting for Proof
A Natural History of Ghosts: 500 Years of Hunting for Proof
by Roger Clarke
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars not quite what i expected, 24 April 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having been a huge paranormal fan since my early teens i have managed to collect far too many books on the subject but am always eager to add more. i ordered this book in a hurry without maybe realising it wasnt what i would normally buy. its not so much a book full of ghost stories more of ( as the title suggests) a history behind it. i did learn an awful lot from this book and found stories ive never heard of before but found the book hard going. if youre looking for a ghost tales book full of stories and quick snappy writing this isnt for you.That said it is well written and will be read again, just not on a day i fancy dipping in and out of a book.

4.0 out of 5 stars geek to the max, 24 April 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
we loved this book, i got the impression it was aimed more at teen boys and i can confirm my 12 year old son very much enjoyed this ( especially being a geek himself) but my 15 year old daughter also enjoyed this so i do think it has wider appeal.the author seems to have got the market for teens pretty well sussed as this does appeal.
not the best book ever written but for a quick bit of fun or to encourage a teen son to read and get off that xbox its great for the price

4.0 out of 5 stars classic story telling at its best, 24 April 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I adored this book but then again thats just me as i couldnt wait to get my hands on this knwoing how much i love her work. to have so many stories in one place was wonderful and i have to admit even at 38 i read it from start to finish and feel no shame for that !!!
i would agree with some reviews that this is a big book for little hands to hold so it does not make for an easy book for younger readers to maybe use alone but then again it does feel like a gorgeous old traditional novel which i loved. i love the fact all the stories are together in one but would advise reading this to the child if they struggle with the size and some of the old fashioned wording. that said these are classic magical wish filled stories which will be read for many generations to come i hope.
highly recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars a great addition, 18 April 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
we ordered this book for our little girl who is nearly 4 and adores everything disney especially the girly princess side of it all, this more than kept her happy.
each story takes up one page with one picture which was more than enough each night for someone of our daughters age, this may not satisfy older children after a bedtime story to be read to them but does mean they have a short story they can read themselves so its has its up and down points.
great quality and a lovely addition to any fans little collection


Sugru - White (Pack of 3)
Sugru - White (Pack of 3)
Price: 6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, a toolbox essential in our house, 28 Feb 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
this stuff is an absolute must have addition to anybodys home tool kit.

we've used it to repair bits of the car interior, to create a better grip for a compact camera, repairing those ever troublesome iPod cables (being white it doesn't show)... and probably a load of stuff to come which means we're going to get some more. it will come off easily enough if you want it to, but it's not just going to peel off for no good reason, it would be handy that if it were for a temporary fix that the product was reuseable but this isn't grounds enough to take away a 5 star rating.

I would certainly take the products advice and keep it in a fridge to extend it's useable life by a considerable amount but once we found one job it never got put away as everything got some Sugru around it.

Fantastic product, and literally 1,000,001 uses for it.


Avira AntiVirus Premium 2012 (PC) - 1+1 User 1 Year License
Avira AntiVirus Premium 2012 (PC) - 1+1 User 1 Year License
Price: 24.97

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Rate AntiVirus software from a company you've never heard of., 28 Feb 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I can say that as a loyal AVG user, this is very very easy to install and configure... it doesn't take a lot of technical knowledge to get it started or maintained properly as 99% of this is automatic. I have it installed as 2 single user licenses on my kids machines and they get a level of protection that i'm more than happy with compared to the likes of Norton and Kaspersky. I would only warn of 2 simple things...

1. like most AV packages it can be processor heavy, but out of the box it's setup to be user dominant (so it backs off when you're working)

2. it really really doesn't like windows 8, i cannot stress this enough. Win8 will not allow this to install or run and once you've opened it and tried to install you may struggle with a refund as you've broken the seals.

but, all that aside... would i buy a renewal from Avira? i've already put the note on the calendar to remind me to get a renewal


The Playdate
The Playdate

Price: 3.86

3.0 out of 5 stars A marmite book, 28 Feb 2013
This review is from: The Playdate (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
From the other reviews i can see you either love this book or dont, sadly i didnt and neither did a friend who also read it. we normally do enjoy this style of book but both found the same problem here. although the story idea is great and seemed to work in parts more of the book seemed to focus on character building rather than the story for the most part and it felt like it rarely progressed beyond that for us. neither of us wanted to finish this book but did in the hopes it would improve.
It is by no means a terrible book, far from it but not one either of us would pick up again or recommend but as with all books and everything in life we are all different and maybe this book simply wasnt for us.


Five Children and it
Five Children and it
by E. Nesbit
Edition: Audio CD

4.0 out of 5 stars a classic, 28 Feb 2013
This review is from: Five Children and it (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A classic story well told. i wont explain the story as many already have and you dont really need to read that over and over do you.
what i will say is it was well produced and they more than picked a great actress to read the story as it for us as a family really brought the story to life.It really is a true classic which i think many children will miss out on in favour of new and more modern stories so please give this one a go. Not for younger children really more 7-8 plus i would say but all children are different so please only use that as a guide.
a good price for a great product. well worth a listen as we enjoyed every moment of it

5.0 out of 5 stars perfection, 28 Feb 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very thick cream which more than does what it says it does, works fast to cure all cracking and chaffing, you only need a little and works fast to cure the problem easily.fragrance free so no smells for anyone to pick up on, did not seep through the bra to leave stains or greasy mark and over all was more than impressed with this product. great for breast feeding or for other issues along this line
