Acer Iconia B1 7" Tablet Case - G-HUB PropUp PURPL&hellip by G-HUB
5.0 out of 5 stars Great service, 2 Sep 2013
I have to say that, compared with other tablet covers I've looked at, this one is by far the best value for money.

The first thing to say about The Left...TLHoG for short, is that it is much more grounded than most fantasy. The plot is (at a stretch) believable insofar as that there is no magic and no fantastic beasts that require you to suspend your disbelief. Paul Hoffman has taken a leaf out of Guy Gavriel Kay's book (or perhaps even several of them)and postulated a world which is almost, but not quite, recognisable, featuring religious and political factions which are nearly, but not really, historic. It makes for a story that feels like fantasy for grown-ups.
(incidentally, one reviewer at least claims that this is a book for teens. Really??! Most teens would cope fine with it, but it IS… Read more
