4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Brilliant, 12 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Depression, the Black Dog on the cover, is a bold subject to tackle in a book for children but Doyle handles it skilfully.

I really enjoyed this book – the construct is neat (taking a metaphor literally), the story moves along at a good pace and the dialogue is a brilliant as ever.

As enjoyable as his adult fiction.

Now I only need to persuade my teenage son to read it!
Targus Geo Gibson Messenger Bag for 15.6 inch Lapt&hellip by Targus
3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Bag, 9 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)

The bag is very (very) lightweight and well made. The internal compartments are well padded and well suited for carrying laptops and tablets. The shoulder strap is

While this bag won't win any bag beauty parades but it is not unattractive.

The issues are:
The handle is absurdly thin (and feels flimsy); a more substantial handle is required,.
Some of the design 'twiddles' are annoying; for example the faux leather fixtures for the front flap.
Rapesco Heavy Duty Punch, Hole Punch, P1100 by Rapesco
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
To be honest, this hole punch is a little over specified for my requirements. That said it makes every other hole punch I've ever used (let alone owned) seem inadequate.
