Believing the Lie (Inspector Lynley)
Believing the Lie (Inspector Lynley)
by Elizabeth George
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.14

1.0 out of 5 stars Irritating sexist rubbish underpins the whole thing, 15 Sep 2014
Am I the only person who finds it offensive that a central female character's theory about what is behind the events they are investigating (a couple struggling to conceive, she thinks) is patronisingly dismissed by her two male fellow investigators on the grounds that she's projecting because she can't conceive herself. Then, to make matters worse, it turns out they are right to have dismissed her theory as irrelevant and she gets to eat dollops of humble pie and apologise to them both at the end for messing them around and wasting their time?

If a male author had written this it would have been dismissed as crass sexism. In a woman author I regard it as a betrayal of her sex. What? A woman's brain goes to mush because she can only think about having babies?

Bruno, Chief of Police: A Bruno Courrèges Investigation
Price: £3.96

4.0 out of 5 stars well researched murder story, 6 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Set in the Dordogne and devoting time to creating a fond image of the area this novel combines thorough research of the back story of wartime Vichy France with a clear affection for the place now. The eponymous detective is a decent ordinary man with whom you feel you could share a bottle of wine and a good meal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent machine at value price, 27 Jun 2014
Lots of programmes. It is very quiet - I can run it at night and not hear it even though it is less than 25ft from my bed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Now I can sound like Hank, 27 Jun 2014

Would have rated it 5 stars but although it often has the second guitar parts (eg for Apache) this is not always the case, so not a full score to reproduce all the parts the Shads played.


Complete Dutch: Teach Yourself (Book/CD Pack)
Complete Dutch: Teach Yourself (Book/CD Pack)
by Gerdi Quist And Dennis Strik
Edition: Paperback
Price: £37.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Beginner Package, 27 Jun 2014
I bought this before moving to Holland with my job. It helped get me past the natural Dutch tendency to speak English to the Brit. I considered it had succeeded when I was taken for a South African by a Dutch person - ie. got the vocabulary and grammar of the language but speak it with a weird accent. I'll settle for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to this weird puzzle solving world, 27 Jun 2014
Clearly explains the different types of cryptic clue and has example crosswords to do to learn each style. The answers come with an explanation to aid your progress. Gets steadily harder as your skills develop. I'm hooked.

It is a decent sounding instrument for a very reasonable price. The choice of soft gig-bag and hard carry case is excellent.

Price: £1.53

4.0 out of 5 stars More musings from the retired detective, 27 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Talk about an unreliable witness. But the writing has a Welsh wit about it that makes the stories flow. Enjoyable with no pretensions.
