5.0 out of 5 stars Roll over Wodehouse, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you enjoy the work of PG Wodehouse but prefer your female characters to occupy centre stage then you will love E.F. Benson's Mapp and Lucia stories. Each one is a finely honed gem of comic observation of middle class middle English life with all its snobbery and pretension told with a fondness that tempers the cynicism.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great behind the scenes book, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are interested in how the National Trust looks after all its buildings and contents or if you have a very old house and antiques this book is a mine of useful information. It covers everything from glass to carpet, window lead to chimneys. It is very much a book for dipping into and discovering new facts, did you know that old glass can start to 'weep' and the glaze on china can become 'crazed'?

3.0 out of 5 stars hard to walk, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the sketchers quite hard to walk in and they are a bit roomy for a size 7 so my feet tend to slip around inside them, this combined with the very dense sole makes me feel as though I am walking along a ship's deck in a rough sea, good job I don't get seasick!

This review is from: Primeval - Series 4 [DVD] (DVD)
Despite the dodgy physics and palaeography this is thoroughly enjoyable viewing, settle down with some munchies and waste a Saturday afternoon chasing monsters, great fun.


The Discovery of Witches and Witchcraft: The Writings of the Witchfinders
The Discovery of Witches and Witchcraft: The Writings of the Witchfinders

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating find, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a fascinating read, it allows us a glimpse into the mind of a very disturbed man who used fear of witches as a way of managing his own and other people's anxiety about the events of the civil war. In the 1930s Hopkins would have been a fascist, in the 1950s he would have been a McCarthyite, today he would be a leading light in UKIP.


The Wilkie Collins Megapack
The Wilkie Collins Megapack
Price: £0.59

4.0 out of 5 stars A rare treat, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have only just started reading the short stories but I am really enjoying them, Collins is remembered for the Moonstone and The Woman in White but his short stories are equally entertaining in the high gothic late Victorian manner. Cheap at the price and difficult to find in traditional book form

This review is from: Book of Cakes (Paperback)
I thought this was a different Rose Elliott book so I was a bit disappointed, the recipes are rather pedestrian but it didn't cost much to buy so Overall I'm fairly happy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work, 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very disappointed with this item as it has had no effect on the annoying little dogs next door who bark at everything that moves. A complete waste of money.
