Once one has read the first volume of this trilogy, the other two are absolutely essential, if one wishes to enjoy reaxed sleep. Anybody fond of mistery and thriller novels ought to possess the whole set.


The Girl Who Played With Fire (Millennium Trilogy)
The Girl Who Played With Fire (Millennium Trilogy)
by Stieg Larsson
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate whodunit ?, 21 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the first volume of this series, following a hunch and I was - DEFINITELY - not disappointed. In my youth, I have read most of the classic thrillers, together with the best of the mystery genre and virtually everything in between. Once more, I am chuffed to say, my hunch proved right. It is obviously indispensable for whomever bought the other two volumes. Much recommended.

Heinemann Profiles: Charles Rennie Mackintosh (Cased)
by Richard Tames
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent synopsis of the architect's life and career, 21 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This synopsis - which arrived well ahead of time; perfectly packaged and in better conditions than expected - is the perfect way to introduce the subject to anyone who hadn't read, or heard, of it before. For those already conversant with it, it is a very handy addition to one's library, for it can be used as an aide memoire. In either case I do recommend it very warmly.


Furniture for the 21st Century (Books for Craftsmen)
Furniture for the 21st Century (Books for Craftsmen)
by Betty Norbury
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £17.96

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted, 10 Oct. 2011
I am the fortunate possessor of -to date- three books by Betty Norbury. The fourth one is on its way (always via Amazon, I want you to know). Ever since I bought the first one ("Bespoke") I was inevitably hooked: I wanted them ALL and, barring unforeseeables, I am about to have them. For anybody who simply enjoys the look and feel of a well produced tome, these are a must. For those who in addition love superbly crafted objects, my advice is: get them all! These books are fine things in their own right; filled as they are with superbly displayed images of beautiful items of furniture, and written by Mrs Norbury, they BELONG in every booklover's library. The delivery was not just punctual, but much in advance of the advised term, the book was well packaged and the service up to Amazon standards. Many thanks.
