Desolation Island by Patrick O'Brian
Desolation Island by Patrick O'Brian
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, 15 Nov 2013
Of all the books I read, the Aubrey Maturin tales by Patrick O'Brian are definitely the best serial books I have come across, and of all the adventures this is my favourite. These books are painstakingly accurate accounts of what life was like on ships of the era, and although the actual adventures documented in the books are fictional, they are so closely woven into factual history that they may as well be true. Brilliant.
Three Men in a Boat & Three Men on a Bummel (Words&hellip by Jerome K. Jerome
I was recommended this book by a friend who read it twice and can't stop talking, or laughing about it. I have done my best with it but I just don't find it that funny. I like the way it is written and it's historical relevance, but in the end I found it a bit long drawn out and not as hilarious as others seem to find it. Maybe it is me that should be reviewed negatively!.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a bit tight, 15 Nov 2013
I bought the yellow one to make me more visible when swimming in the sea. It certainly does that job, my only complaint would be that it is very tight, my head is quite big, my hat size, not my ego, and it is fairly restricting, otherwise it is durable and good value.
