5.0 out of 5 stars the other side of the Great War, 7 Jun 2014
This review is from: The Storms of War (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Because the anniversary of the Great War has been seen on television and in the newspapers etc. I thought I would see what extra information I could get after discussions with family and friends. This book did not disappoint, I was hooked from page one and each chapter took me on more twists and turns. I was very exciting to read and at times very moving and sad. The descriptive writing gave me and I'm sure others a very clear mental image of buildings, the war front, relationships and the family dynamics. thoroughly enjoyed it sad to fini.

4.0 out of 5 stars great fun for all, 7 Jun 2014
This review is from: Mega Mosaics Galt (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I chose the mega mosaics as both my younger grandchildren are quite clever with solving puzzles and thought this might be fun for us all to do, the idea and finished product are great, but due to the size of the tiles (tiny) we all struggled a bit until I hit on the idea of using tweezers. Far less frustrating than before. As there are a few pictures to complete I'm sure that when next the children visit, the mosaics will on the list to use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Monarch, 28 Mar 2014
This review is from: Monarch [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Due to my interest in The Tudor Dynasty I wanted to watch this DVD as it arrived. What a disappointment !!
I am very relieved I had not paid for the DVD, it did not live up to it's preview blurb. the story line was so badly delivered, with mediocre acting and scenes jumping about without proper sequence it was difficult to watch without wondering if I had "nodded off"
Consigned to the bin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simon Scarrow "the Blood Crows", 4 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Gave this book the thumbs up because I have read Simon Scrrow before. His knowledge and descriptions of people and events makes the reader unable to put the book down. Certainly he is an author worthy of collecting. In his stories about characters in the Roman Army et al, the script makes one believe that is visual not just the written word very exciting as usual, can't wait to get another

4.0 out of 5 stars whipped creme foundation, 26 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
haven't worn a foundation for a long time as I think the use of them is so obvious to others, however....... this Max Factor creme has me very enthusiastic from the first moment I used it.
The creme is very fine and sinks into the skin to give a very natural look, will now put this product on the shopping list

5.0 out of 5 stars Music of the night Andre Rieu, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Music Of The Night (Audio CD)
As usual Andre's showmanship to the fore. Can't get enough of this man and his music and his lavish performances. Will save up to visit his home town to see a concert live in the place he grew up and developed his love of music. He is such a family man too and that shows on his various behind the scenes shows. keep up the good work Andre !!!


Mrs. Hemingway
Mrs. Hemingway
by Naomi Wood
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.09

4.0 out of 5 stars Mrs Hemingway(s), 23 Feb 2014
This review is from: Mrs. Hemingway (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
this is a book based on the various biographies of all the Hemingway wives but as the author says is a "book of imagination". Wasn't sure at first as I found the hopping of time in Hemingway and his four wives alittle confusing. However as the book progressed it became easier to read. Very interesting from the point of view of Ernest Hemingway and how all his wives slotted into his life couldn't imagine being in their place but understood the charisma of the man. What a pity it had to end the way it did but how many people of high intelligence find that's the very thing hard to live with . Good read.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very pleased with this item, made a mess in the microwave first one used as a deeper dish is needed. Lovely flavour. Due to medical reasons and because everything is finely ground down I can manage the content of the mix. Will certainly buy more


The Obamas: A Mission, A Marriage
The Obamas: A Mission, A Marriage
by Jodi Kantor
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars the Obamas a mission , a marriage, 27 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book arrived in time for Christmas reading, and what a revelation !!!!
You imagine that being elected to high office would be very exciting, the reality is that the new encumbants have to fit into an already organised ticking clock which may or may not, as in this case fit the personalities forced to live in such a situation.
Thank goodness the UK system for the PM is not as rigid as the American.
It was exciting and thrilling to see Barak Obama elected to the precidency but some shocks awaited the First Family which they did not like and thought they could change relatively quickly, not to be !! and therein the book became an engrossing story of success and defeats, shining moments of happiness and the depression as a result of trying to do things their way.
Thoroughly enjoyed the read I felt I was looking over the Presidents shoulder and sharing in his progress following his election and the effect on such a close knit family. Members of my family are now vieing to be the next to read it.
Brilliant choice Amazon !!!
