The Legend of Bernie: with the Foxey factor
The Legend of Bernie: with the Foxey factor
by Alan Bernard
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.60

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy readable, 16 Feb 2014

Highly improbable and enjoyable flights of imagination with unbelievable sequences make this a titter experience. Really a collection of short stories with Bernie the link as he progresses through life. The background characters provide stability and re-appear to add familiar body to the plots. There are belly laughs aplenty.. Very very enjoyable.

Can't go wrong with Harry. Can't go wrong with Michael Connelly. As always a great combination and of course great Kindle value.

I got this so that I can cook (gas BBQ) and keep warm when our political masters fail to provide energy. The BBQ and heater both use the same size Gas container. Reckon I might survive a few months.
Only threestars because I hope I will never use it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very technical., 3 Feb 2014

A wealth of Word information. Probably far more than I need. I've bookmarked sections for future reference.

As with all matters Kindle, the author tries to cover all contingencies and all equipments. I was able to skip through many sections of no relevance to me..

Good effort.

This review is from: First Thrills (Kindle Edition)
Three short stories and very good reads. Great value.

It was interesting to note that even at the quality level of these esteemed authors, there were typos and formatting issues. Quite cheered me up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy enjoyable read, 16 Jan 2014

I did wonder how the hero was changing into a thug yet was still able to moralise. The ending made the title a bit obscure.

A light hearted read, heavy on thinking and planning and light on action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Swerves from fiction to non-fiction, 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Half way through some descriptions and advices, I discover that the author is talking about non-fiction. As a potential novelist I do not need advice on bullet points and tables. On the good side I have saved 5 bookmarks as reference points. I read the book in one go.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very complicated, 16 Jan 2014

As with many of the helpful self publish books I have read, they veer into complications I do not need. One day I may find a simple booklet on how to put my finished MS into the Kindle. That's all.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Best Friend, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pretty first impression! After a quick trot around the front and back gardens I had sculpted a green blob into a sort of cup, and created twin square pillars of spruce that had previously sprawled across an arch. My wife decided I had a new best friend.
The crunch came next day when I tackled a 20 metre hedge about 6ft on my side and 8ft on a footpath. When I hit my first unfore seen twig jam I decided that such blind and heavy work would damage her and stopped.
I guess the NBF will become a welcome tool for all the shrubs and brambles and convolvuli, and any work I can see but blind work would be cruel.. She is to be a manicurist My perfectionist.

Pleased to own her.
