5.0 out of 5 stars Super lightweight computer, 9 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Originally bought an iPad which frustrated me mainly because of its inability to handle documents and connect a hard disc.
Should have bought one of these to start with, as it's virtually as good as my iMac. 11-inch display is ok for most things. Very satisfied.
International keyboard is not a problem.

A Classic which I should have read years ago. On a par with the best and difficult to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars My First Book by this Author - won't be the Last, 9 Aug 2014

This review is from: LEVIATHAN (Kindle Edition)
First book by this author that I have read, and I was impressed. Liked the writing style, the background information and the way the author kept letting you have little clues to progress the plot. A thoroughly enjoyable read.


Mud and Gold (Promises to Keep Book 2)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lot of Detail - but Good., 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Difficult to rate this book without considering the "Promises to Keep" series as a whole. However the 5 star rating equally applies to the other three books. At times the plot seems to be moving quite slowly which is hardly surprising as just 40 years is spread over 4 books. But my major criterion for the quality of a book is "Does it hold my attention all the way through?", and the answer to this question would have to be "Yes". Even the parts of the book that are not necessary to the story are nonetheless interesting. All in all I found the books well written, and was sorry when the story came to an end. It left me wondering what happened after 1909.


Family Tree Maker for MAC v2 (Mac)

4.0 out of 5 stars Acceptable, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as good as my old FTM for PC which I think was version 2. But it does have the ability to produce All in One Trees or Extended Family Trees (call them what you will) which I consider important. Again not as well done as with my old PC version and I had to process the charts in a Photo Editing programme to get more or less what I wanted. However it's easy to use, intuitive and quite stable, so does the job. Note I did not try to link it to Ancestry which I do not need and which some users have reported as unstable,

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story well told, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite being a male who usually reads crime fiction, I really enjoyed this book. In fact I have now read all of Elizabeth Gill's books. The characters are well developed, the story flows easily and it has that quality where you don't want to put the book down, The endings are usually predictable, but that doesn't matter. It's how it gets to the end that's important. First class!

2.0 out of 5 stars Got fed up with it, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read half way fairly quickly - and then decided I wasn't enjoying it. You can have too much violence and sex, so gave up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good - but needed more Action, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a bad read which held my attention all the way through. However it lacked that "edge of your seat" quality - at times I felt like I was reading an Enid Blyton "Famous Five" book.
