Telling Tales (Vera Stanhope)
Telling Tales (Vera Stanhope)
Price: 2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars There were times when I couldn't put it down, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was the first of the Vera books I have read. I've watched the TV series, and enjoyed them. Having read this book, I can make the link between the book and the TV but, the book wins hands down. Although slow to get into, the book gradually became more involved, and eventually I just couldn't put it down. I had to finish it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality item, 14 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is no doubt that this is a good quality item, but why don't such items fit the little loops provided on various cases for ipads, nooks, etc.?
Surely it's not too much to ask.
Anyway, this is easy to use, it does exactly what it claims to do, and the pen is useful as well. I thoroughly recommend it. You can buy cheaper alternatives (I've tried them, and are now an expert in repair), but this one takes the biscuit.
Go for it!

4.0 out of 5 stars It gets more exciting as you read on, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I must admit to being somewhat sceptical about this book at first but, as I read further, the more engrossed I became until I just couldn't put it down. Well worth reading, and just shows how easily things can go wrong, and how easy it is to take peoples' money.

4.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Buy" item for RM enthusiasts, 30 Mar 2014

Both my wife and I grew up in Portsmouth, my father-in-law was in the Marines, and we all went to the RM Christmas Concerts in the Guildhall each year, so this recording was essential for our collection and we were not disappointed.


Narrow Margins - a laugh-out-loud book about life on the waterways (Narrow Boat Books 1)
Narrow Margins - a laugh-out-loud book about life on the waterways (Narrow Boat Books 1)
Price: 0.77

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy It, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are someone who loves boating, especially boating on the inland waterways, then you will recognise many of the events in this book and know when to laugh out loud. But it's not just about the pitfalls and triumphs of life, it's also about the people who choose to live on the waterways and the community they share, something that is sadly lacking in the land-based world. Once started, I couldn't put this book down. It's easy to read, and you can't help but laugh, or at least smile, at life on the water.

This review is from: Best of Lang Lang (Audio CD)
I was expecting perhaps too much with this set. The playing is, of course, superb, but I was a little disappointed with the choice of music on disc 2. That, of course, is a personal matter, and will not apply to everyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book 100% - Amazon Zero, 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The original copy I received was damaged. As it was intended as a christening present, the condition was unacceptable and the book was returned. That system worked fine. The replacement book was received in an even worse condition, so that was returned as well. I hasten to add that, in my opinion, neither condition was due to the packaging which, although not up to the usual standard, was acceptable. Needless to say, and for the first time ever, I did not re-order from Amazon, but went elsewhere and obtained the same book in excellent condition.

Come on Amazon, get it sorted!

Bit disappointed in this one. I think the title is more than a little misleading in relation to the content
