Red Ultra Thin Snap-On Hard Back Cover Case for Apple iPod Touch 5th Generation 5G 5
Red Ultra Thin Snap-On Hard Back Cover Case for Apple iPod Touch 5th Generation 5G 5
Offered by Electromaster (Ships From USA)
Price: £3.45

5.0 out of 5 stars A protective case that makes an iTouch beautiful - and safe, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My third (and least expensive) attempt to find a suitable case for my iTouch 5 - at last, success. A slim yet tough non-slip case that makes an iTouch even more beautiful to look at and hold, if that's possible. Needless to say, dropped it on a stone floor on day one, expecting the worst, but no damage suffered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sea Detective Cal in a second intriguing cliff-hanger, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A rattling good thriller, cleverly constructed around the mysterious, desirable Megan who walked into the sea...or did she? A classic cliff-hanger (in more ways than three) which kept me guessing until the end. And a welcome return of sea detective Cal among a believable and recognisable cast who include a disgruntled old retainer, an unfaithful husband, a greedy trust fund family and corrupt police force - all this set in the beautiful landscape of the Scottish west coast, overshadowed by the all-too-familiar threat of a wind farm. A great read which will make a gripping TV drama.


Memories of My Life at the College Valley
Memories of My Life at the College Valley
by Martin Letts
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.24

4.0 out of 5 stars A charming memoir of life in the saddle, 28 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a charming memoir of a life spent in pursuit of the uneatable and so much more than a book about breeding foxhounds. Letts's sharp observations of people and events are as entertaining and informative as his account of days in the saddle in the Cheviot Hills in Northumberland. A must for foxhunters and dog breeders - and an unexpected pleasure for anyone interested in the countryside.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still going strong, 28 Jun 2012
Asa Briggs, one of the great thinkers of the 20th Century, has been a mover and shaker in the political and educational world for more than seventy years. Now aged 91, but still burning bright, he gives us an insight into the man we didn't know with a fascinating account of his formative years in Yorkshire and an insight into the development in Britain of further education, in which Asa played such an important part with the founding of the Open University. A must for bulgy brains, 20th Century historians, Bletchley Park obsessives - and anyone who loves Yorkshire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting under the skin of Bletchley, 17 Jun 2011
By writing about the people at Bletchley, Asa Briggs has brought it to life and made it all the more extraordinary and interesting. This is a wonderful account of life there with a historian's perspective of who really did what. I thought there was nothing left to know about Bletchley, having read so many other books about it, but this one is different. I heartily recommend it. How lucky we were having such brilliant minds, as well as brave hearts, to defeat the Nazis. Christopher Ward
