4.0 out of 5 stars Handy, 28 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Handy little case for keeping reading glasses from getting mangled in pocket. Metal quite thin so can get bent out of shape.


1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare
1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare

3.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Academic musings, 21 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not an easy book for those with a casual interest in Shakespeare. A great deal of knowledge of all of his plays is assumed and the explanations of Shakespeare's life, and the general state of the world, in 1599 turn on the interpretation of a word or phrase in a play. I admit to skimming through several pages where the academic detective work got simply so intense and anal it risked ending up in Pseuds corner in Private Eye. But even with that I still came away with feeling a better appreciation of the man and in particular his times.

A Shilling For Candles
A Shilling For Candles

4.0 out of 5 stars But why a shilling for candles?, 21 April 2016
I really enjoy Josephine Tay novels (Brat Farrar is my favourite and one I would recommend to any first time Tay reader) and A Shilling is an enjoyable, mildly gripping thriller. I found the repeated anti semitism and casual racism in this one disturbing but I suppose we must accept it is a reflection of its time, as is the police's comical deference to the 'higher' social orders. While the story wraps up neatly and we can infer the reason the victim's will includes the bequest of the shilling for candles, the exact significance of this intriguing title isn't fully explained.

2.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't they find an editor?, 9 April 2016
May be there is a coherent and interesting story here in this litany of 'how I screwed up at every opportunity' but I couldn't see it. The endless footnotes - often making corrections or clarifying points in the text - were infuriating. Why weren't they simply part of the narrative? The anticipated 'redemption' was weak and throwaway and undermined the effort of reading the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for history buffs, 29 Mar. 2016

Not as great as Tey's other novels (such as the terrific Brat Farrar, which would love to see as to dramatisation) . But for those with an interest in history and in particular Richard III will find much to enjoy as the true picture of the monarch emerges .

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, 29 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enjoyable and at times tenses detective thriller set, obviously, in murky Glasgow underworld. My only gripe was that I didn't realise the early chapter headings were explaining which character was recounting the story so got muddled at first as to who was who.

1.0 out of 5 stars His research notes would be better read, 16 Jan. 2016
Terrible. Starts well then quickly falls apart. Having filleted a few real life spy stories by time we get to Vietenam he's just writing up his research of the period with a few badly drawn unbelievable characters thrown in. when you ger to the denouement you want to throw the Kindle across the room. Ridiculous!
