5.0 out of 5 stars A great product, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wonderful screen, very quiet, and has all I need for a desktop. My only complaints would be that earlier iMacs had a 'sleep' light, which for some reason was removed from the design. The aesthetics of J.Ive also mean that all the connector ports are at the back, so not always so simple to plug/unplug external devices.


Berlin Noir: March Violets, The Pale Criminal, A German Requiem
Berlin Noir: March Violets, The Pale Criminal, A German Requiem
by Philip Kerr
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Philip Kerr is one of my favourite writers, with original plots following the adventures of a non-Nazi German policeman in and after the II World War. His use sometimes of real-life Nazi villains, and the way they use their powers, gives the stories a powerful dimension.

Great for parties and other events. They don't last long, but are for indoors so quite small and safe enough for children with adults around.

Beastly Things: (Brunetti 21)
Beastly Things: (Brunetti 21)
by Donna Leon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Am a fan of Leon, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Donna Leon has created a great combination of regular characters around the main police station in Venice, and in this book they are all back again. Also there are always insights into the Italian way of life from bureaucracy/politics/nepotism to domestic family scenes, as seen though the patient eyes of the main character, detective Brunetti. The Venetian atmosphere sucks you into the plot that maintains interest with a colourfu and crediblel plot-line. Another to please the fans and new readers of Donna Leon.


The Mongoliad (The Mongoliad Cycle Book 3)
The Mongoliad (The Mongoliad Cycle Book 3)
by Neal Stephenson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.18

4.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to comment, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do not think that this last of the three books is easy to comment on. It takes you to the far East, to Rome, to outside Rome, and Mongolia. This aims to be an epic tale, so there is a multitude of characters most with impossible names. Seeing the numbers of authors confirmed to me how some sections felt differently written to others, such as the hand-to-hand combat in different styles to more emotional interpersonal scenes.
On the other hand, it is hard to put down and contains some gripping narratives. I have always liked reading Stephenson's books and his originality. This is all still reflected in this trilogy. This third and last is a thick tome which promises long and satisfying reads....once you can work out or remember which unpronouceable name refers to which character.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, 19 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have not worn these very much yet. I bought them as 'house' shoes, not to wear out in the streets. They are quite 'padded' and comfortable, in a pleasant 'Burgundy' colour. So far I am pleased with them, but who knows how long products like these last?
