Skagen Women's Stainless Steel Mesh Watch 589SSS Skagen

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment, 13 Nov 2012
A handsome watch; a present, nicely packaged & a good price. The clasp was, as reported by others, fiddly. I could cope with that BUT after only three wearings the clasp has come out - fortunately not when I was wearing it. I now have all the kerfuffle of sending it back, invoking guarantee etc etc. Skagen really needs to look at this problem & to rectify. Difficult to rate it so my rating is nominal; about 2 & 1/2 at this time!

A fine, mature, and psychologically perceptive novel which has been elegantly and skilfully crafted.
O' Farrell has woven a compelling plot with a strong sense of time (from the 1930s to the present) and place (India & Edinburgh), each anchored by rich sensory detail.Thorough research and observation clearly underpin this novel but they are neither heavy-handed nor self-conscious. Her characterisation seemed to me to be effective and persuasive.
Esme - the protagonist's previously unknown elderly relative upon whose discovery, after she had been held for sixty years in a lunatic asylum, the plot hangs - illuminates a significant theme of the novel (p 134)when she decides that… Read more
