The Art of Racing in the Rain
The Art of Racing in the Rain
by Garth Stein
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

5.0 out of 5 stars What a find, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A casual friend recommended this book to me and I can't thank him enough. I now look at my own dog in a different light and wonder what she would be like if she had thumbs! My own dog does try to talk to us, especially if she wants something to eat.
Further thoughts, if dogs come back as man do lady dogs come back as females?
Did not want the book to end.
Highly recommended.

Saw the programmes by chance on a cookery chanel and had to have it.
Again classic Floyd slurping his way around the wine regions of France accompanied by a wine expert who brought alive the mystique of the wine world.

One of the early Floyd documentaries and a classic one.
A mixture of cookery and history of the local area.

This review is from: Dog Chew Christmas Advent Calendar
A good idea...making a change from chocolate.
On arrival all the dogs chews had fallen down to the bottom. The outside packing seemed too large for the interior. Tried to replace the chews but this did not work as the 'windows' were difficult to open making the treats fall to the bottom again.
Ended up taking them all out and giving the dog one at night instead.

It would only suit aVERY thin yoga mat. After a few chops with the scissors I have manged to make it work for my mat. It just keeps it neat and tidy.

Arrived punctually. Lights stayed on for a decent length of time....not sure if the dog appreciated it as she wore it as a bow on top of her head!

Old remote was packing up and required a lot of patience to use.
This one arrived and did exactly what it said on the box...worked straight away!

Looked for a wheeled brief case for my husband as he is having problems with his hands and can not carry heavy cases any more.
I think he was wary but after its first use was delighted.
Case has a basic inside - not too many compartments to lose things in.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was given this book for Christmas and it was absolute delight, kept dipping into it all over Christmas.
I have been looking for a book like this for years.
The authors enthusiasm for this subject came through on every page.
Packed with so much information and little known facts. Makes me want to go back and start all over again on the Cathedrals I have visited.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good Cook - Simon Hopkinson, 15 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Good Cook (Hardcover)
What a fantastic cookery book! Beautifully presented and easy to use, i.e. pages lie flat when in use. All the recipes are 'do-able'. My husband has suggested I start at page 1 and just continue.
Can't wait for the DVD to come out.
Simon Hopkinson is the Chef's cook and has been a well kept secret for many years.
Enjoy!
