A bit heavy and easy to chip - but decent for the price.


One Summer: America 1927 (Bryson)
One Summer: America 1927 (Bryson)
by Bill Bryson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.74

5.0 out of 5 stars The research to pull this book together must have been immense - but it is no dull list of facts - it has the Bill Bryson ..., 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a superb read. The research to pull this book together must have been immense - but it is no dull list of facts - it has the Bill Bryson touch, which turns it into a fascinating, entertaining book. How the USA managed to cram everything into this one summer is a marvel in itself, let alone the telling of it.
Some may find the baseball side of the story a bit heavy going, but it is essential to the tale. Others may feel the aviation stories a bit too much, but again, they add to the whole sum.
It is not intended to be a humourous story, but Bill Bryson's touch keeps it light with the occasional smile.
Enjoy it as a good summer read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really Pricey, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The quality is fine, but the price is outrageous - it is more expensive than gold. Packaging is awkward and unneccessary.

The Outsiders
The Outsiders
by Gerald Seymour
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

2.0 out of 5 stars No fast-paced climax as promised, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Outsiders (Paperback)
This was my first Gerald Seymour book. He comes with apparent great reviews and ecstatic backing. Sorry but I failed to see what all the fuss is about. Not having read any of his other books so I am unaware if the style used in this book is typical, but I found it laborious and at times, confusing. Perhaps it is because I prefer a straight-forward story which i can simply follow, rather than having to keep referring back to see which bit I am reading about now.
The earth-shuddering climax failed to happen and the book rather whimpered to an end.
It is unlike I will be hurrying to try another Gerald Seymour if this is typical.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 12 May 2011
It could well be me, but I have sown grass seed in a variety of different situations over the years and most have worked to a reasonable level.
Miracle-Gro Patch Magic promotes itself as the next big step forward. Not to me it ain't.
We are just passing the one month anniversary of preparing as per instructions, watering to ensure the colour is right as per instructions and standing waiting for it to produce a wonderful new lush ex-patch or two.
Maybe it takes two months to do anything noticeable, maybe three, but it has produced seven or eight skimpy little hairs so far and that is it.
I will take care and watch with interest for another couple of weeks, then go back to another product, much cheaper, that actually works.
If this grass-seed is simple and hardy, then surely it would take a massive cock-up on my behalf to get the very poor results I am now faced with and I really do not think I am so guilty.
Miracle-What?


I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue: Chairman Humph - A Tribute
I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue: Chairman Humph - A Tribute
by BBC
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £9.25

4.0 out of 5 stars Chairman Humph, 23 Jun. 2010
It may sound corny to say that Humphrey Lyttleton is irreplaceable as Chairman of "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue" but it is perfectly true. The radio show becomes a different animal - but still hugely entertaining.
This Stephen Fry tribute to the programme's long-standing and unique Chairman is interesting and entertaining to listen to, but could do with being a bit longer. It is full of tributes from many friends and colleagues of Humph as that is the title of the CD, but it does leave you feeling that another 15 minutes could have been added - not necessarily of further tributes, but of tales and examples - and still have given us the flavour and respect that was intended.
However, no "I'm Sorry" fans should pass it by.

4.0 out of 5 stars Any other choices?, 23 Jun. 2010
Epson make pretty damn sure that you cannot use anything but their own brand ink in their printers. We have tried refills, copies, standing on one leg and so on, but with little luck. However, their own inks if purchased through Amazon, are high quality and not as expensive as buying anywhere else.


Paul Temple and the Front Page Men (BBC Audio)
Paul Temple and the Front Page Men (BBC Audio)

4.0 out of 5 stars Terribly British, 15 April 2009
"By Timothy!" is the strongest cuss that Paul Temple is capable of, but this only when be is faced with a gang-member holding a revolver.
If nostalgic British police tales, backed up by the finest private 'tec in the business appeals to you, then the BBC have created a wonderful series of stories to keep you entertained for many hours.
"The Front Page Men" is a bit convoluted, so keep concentration at its highest level. The narrator, Anthony Head, does a wonderful job with all the voices from Scottish policeman, to gruff cockney (where would a police tale be without them?) to posh tones of Temple himself, although "doing" Temple's wife is a bit testing.
Plenty unintentional silly bits which modern-day cops would guffaw at (hopefully), but a tale to keep you guessing - and smiling.
