A fine book which is Bryson at his best.The way Bill Bryson paints a picture of America in 1927 is so vivid I feel this is the nearest I have ever been to time travel.Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great series., 11 Oct 2013

This review is from: Love/Hate Series Three (DVD Audio)
Just loving these shows.Both the acting and the writing is top notch.You simply find yourself hooked on what is going to happen next.I feel it sums up a certain part of contemporary Ireland well.I have thought it strange that there has been very little seen of the police so far although I have heard that is going to change for season 4.Which annoyingly I'm not sure when I can see because living in England I can't access RTE.Grrrrrrrr !

Love this show.Gripping TV.Great acting and some great characters.Makes a nice change to crime dramas being set in America or the UK.

The title says it all really.Easy to use and install,and believe me,if I can install and used it any one can.You don't even need the regular instructions.The 'quick' one is ample.


Vulture Peak (Sonchai Jitpleecheep 5)
Vulture Peak (Sonchai Jitpleecheep 5)
by John Burdett
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but earlier ones better., 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 5th book of the series and I still love these books.Maybe the descriptions of the Buddhist/Thai/Asian psyche aren't as frequent as in the earlier books but then maybe the author feels he has more then covered that now.I feel it is indicative of these books that certain guidebooks to Thailand when suggesting further reading suggest these books for a greater understanding of Thailand.I feel this is no mean feat for a series of fictional works.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful 90s flashback, 15 May 2011

This review is from: In A Bar, Under The Sea (Audio CD)
I loved this band back in the mid-to-late 1990s and this album,along with the debut album Worst Case Scenario were,i feel some of the best recordings to come out of that mid-late 90s period.I remember hearing when Deus appeared on the scene record company types descended on Deus's hometown of Antwerp thinking there might be a 'scene' with some similarly innovative bands but they found nothing because Deus were/are a unique band.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect book ?, 18 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bangkok Days (Paperback)
Quite simply one of the best books i have ever read.The prose,the characters,the intriguing insights the author appears to have about life,Bangkok and the people he meets are all wonderfully perfect.I think it was the first time in my life i felt sad about finishing a book because i didn't want it too end.I think everyone one should read this book,but if you are going to Thailand it is a must have,in fact if i had my way a copy would be given to every westerner going in to Thailand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edwardian London encapsulated., 3 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Making the Arsenal (Paperback)
A fantastic book.The main character is one you really warm to and the banter between him and his boss is simply hysterical.The author very cleverly entwines fiction around real events of 1910 such as the parliament act of 1911,the suffragette movement, Welsh miners strikes and the worries over imminment war with Germany.Rarely has an historical novel given me such a feel for the era it is set in.You really get a feel for London in 1910.
There is also no need for you to be a football fan to enjoy the book,the story of Arsenals last days in Woolwich before moving to become North Londons biggest club is merely a backdrop-you could be a football-hater and still enjoy this book.

A lovely 'coffee table' style book for anyone who lives in or originally comes from this part of North London.
The book can be a bit 'Tottenham-centric' but this is a minor gripe,all-in-all a pleasant and worthwhile publication.
