3.0 out of 5 stars Not one to recommend unless you like light reading, 8 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not one to recommend unless you like light reading. It is so similar to Drinkwater's other books that I could guess most of the story from about a quarter way in. Saying that I am in the process of reading all genres to help with my Advanced Creative Writing module with the Open University for my Honours degree. I am learning what to do and, in this case, what not to do when writing.
If you want light holiday reading then this is one to choose.

3.0 out of 5 stars An easy read with few surprises, 30 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An easy read with few surprises. It filled up two or three days for me but did not take much to work out who was who and what was going to happen. I am glad I did not pay full price and that, being a Kindle book, it will not take up any space on my bookshelves.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well written if you like not having to work too hard when reading, 7 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This starts off okay, outlining background stories that will become clear near the end, the middle section grabs your interest much more as many red herrings are thrown in. However, by halfway through the book I had realised the culprit. The ending was all too quick, just one or two very short chapters to explain why, where and who and to add an epilogue. Well written if you like not having to work too hard when reading, it took me about 4 hours to read. Not my usual reading material but having to read many various genres ready for my Open University final degree course.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1,000 prompts, 14 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As I am doing an Advanced Creative Writing module starting October 2014 to finish my BA Hons degree with the Open University, I thought this would be an ideal gift to myself. I intend using one prompt each day to get into the habit of writing creatively after 4 years of academic essays. Ideal on my Kindle which I can take with me wherever I go.

This book tells the real story, the effect it had and the details in a clear and descriptive style that is an easy read. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, it is written with real feeling.


Manchester's Finest: How the Munich air disaster broke the heart of a great city
Manchester's Finest: How the Munich air disaster broke the heart of a great city
by David Hall
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Manchester's Finest, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My partner, not only a lifelong Manchester United fan but also brought up in Stretford, is reading this and remembering the events covered. He says he defies anyone to read it without having a tear in their eye. He was 21 at the time, knew Duncan Edwards personally along with other team members who were lost. David Hall's book is superbly written and recalls a time when everybody in the city and beyond felt involved. A must read but have a hankie ready.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heat diffuser ring, 19 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this item to use with a new cooking pan that was delivered with instructions that it needed one of these diffusers. The diffuser works wonderfully but unfortunately the new pan only lasted for one use!!! Now have a diffuser that I don't need at the moment. It is stored away neatly for the future...lol
