Eating Well on a Budget
Eating Well on a Budget
by Sara Lewis
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Worthy and dull, 6 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very dull book that seems designed to drain all the pleasure out of eating.


Adult Colouring Pack
Adult Colouring Pack
by Various
Edition: Paperback
Price: £29.97

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor, 25 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Adult Colouring Pack (Paperback)
Very poor. The outline sketches are crude, thick and smudgy and the pictures themselves are dull. I'd bought this as a gift for a teenage girl but it's so poor I really don't want to give it to her.


Dolly: A Ghost Story
Dolly: A Ghost Story
by Susan Hill
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 25 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dolly: A Ghost Story (Paperback)
After a gripping start, the end came as a huge disappointment. The male lead is typical of many of Hill's others - oddly lacking in male characteristics. The female lead is so extreme as to be equally unbelievable. The plot development is tired and cliched. I expected more of this writer.

These bags are very beautifully made from good quality fabric. Would set off a special gift very nicely.


Novus Pai Mu Tan White Tea Pyramids x 12 (Pack of 3, Total 36 Pyramids)
Novus Pai Mu Tan White Tea Pyramids x 12 (Pack of 3, Total 36 Pyramids)
Price: £10.50

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely refreshing tea, 25 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tea has a lovely bouquet and flavour, with none of the dustiness or bitterness sometimes associated with white tea. Large leaves are generously packed in the fine bags so there is no baggy aftertaste. A lovely light alternative to black or green tea.


A Journal of the Plague Year
A Journal of the Plague Year
by Daniel Defoe
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.48

2.0 out of 5 stars Depressing and a poorly produced edition, 25 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a little disappointed with the book itself as it is not much more than a sad catalogue of horrors. For me the biggest problem is the production. The paper quality is poor, the font is too small and the margins too narrow, making this a rather uncomfortable read.


The English Monster
The English Monster
by Lloyd Shepherd
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 24 April 2015
This review is from: The English Monster (Paperback)
This is dire. The two plots clash crudely in style. The characters are wooden and two-dimensional and the women seem to be there only to suffer and gossip. The language is turgid and the development slow and repetitive.


OMYGOD Christams reindeer brooch - white
OMYGOD Christams reindeer brooch - white
Offered by AJ Retail
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely perky reindeer brooch, 5 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This lovely little brooch looks far nicer in real life than on the picture. It has a slightly convex shape that gives the reindeer a chunky, rounded appearance. The enamel colours are brilliant and there's a good covering of enamel so it looks as if it might be quite durable. The reindeer design is really dynamic. These brooches come packed in a small black bag. Don't worry if you see black specks on the white surface, it's just a bit of lint from the inside of the bag.

Price: £4.72

5.0 out of 5 stars Convincingly foxy, 3 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely model: a very foxy looking fox. It's recommended for years 8+ but it's really a bit too easy for an eight-year old.


Kitchens of Italy 2015 Wall Calendar
Kitchens of Italy 2015 Wall Calendar
by BrownTrout Publishers Ltd.
Edition: Calendar

5.0 out of 5 stars Two daughters can't be wrong, 3 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My friend was delighted to receive this calendar. She says the paper and print quality is excellent. She's very familiar with Italy and says the photo selection is wonderful, with each interior typical in some way of Italian kitchens from cosy farmhouses to opulent villas. Each daughter tried to smuggle it into her luggage after a visit. Each was thwarted.
