Wrong choice of vehicle for two people and two dogs but quite amusing.

Why continue with a crap camper van when there are so many good ones on the market? Quite funny but too much time spent on repairs and eating!

Not as good as some of his other books but very readable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sad Story, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this is a very sad story I did not find the style of writing very emotive. I am sure the film would be much more evocative. It is set at a time when views about slavery were changing. Of course it was very wrong for this person to be kidnapped and sold into slavery but so many black people were born into slavery with no hope of escape at that time.


Peas & Queues: The Minefield of Modern Manners
Peas & Queues: The Minefield of Modern Manners
Price: 1.80

3.0 out of 5 stars What are Manners, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Manners are part of the culture we live in and vary quite widely from one culture to another. Sandi Toksvig in talking to a teenager points out in an amusing way the pitfalls of various misunderstandings within our society.

4.0 out of 5 stars Historic Insight, 26 Mar 2014

This book follows the lives of a group of Bronze Age people. The book is well researched from the facts we know about that period and the story line is very plausible.


Christian Beginnings: From Nazareth to Nicaea, AD 30-325
Christian Beginnings: From Nazareth to Nicaea, AD 30-325
Price: 6.64

4.0 out of 5 stars Christian Realities, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book looks at the progression of Christian ideas from the time of Jesus until the conference in Nicaea in AD 325 when the New Testament was crystallised. Apparently Jesus and his followers had a very different idea of his mission to that of later 'spin doctors'. There are a few Christian sects that adhere to the original concepts but most believe in something very different. I would recommend that all Christians read this book to understand how their religion began and how it developed in the first few centuries.
