In My Own Words:
I am so sorry but I am unable to review any self-published books. I have far too many books I have searched out and bought waiting to be read, so my to be read pile contains 6 months of reading material.

As requests from self-published authors happen, despite this disclaimer, on an almost daily basis, I am unable even to reply with the information above, to explain why, with regret, I can't re… Read more

Cat Mate - 235W - 4 Way Locking Cat Flap/Door With&hellip by Cat Mate
I am delighted with this. More importantly, the felines have not objected.

Many years ago THE brand name for Cat Doors, Staywell, used to produce a square cat flap, with very little wasted space on surround (very like this one, in fact) only in an unappealing dingy brownish shade. This was what I had. it didn't look particularly pretty, but it did work well. Until a set of vigorous and destructive kittens broke it. Unfortunately, Staywell had upgraded to the (to my mind) stupid curved flap in the still square surround base. So that was what I had to have, and it never quite fitted. I was loath to have the carpenter enlarge and reshape the hole in the door, in case I ever found… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Filtration for Snails, 21 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've been using Jug Water Filters now for many years, essential to maintain the life of kettles, coffee makers, irons, steam cleaners and the like, living in a hard water area. Not to mention that I do prefer the taste of the filtered water to tap.

But I've always used a Brita, starting with the various classic varieties, and then latterly, jugs using Brita Maxtra, the larger filters. Many of the more modern filters have some sort of digital display to alert to when the filter needs changing. To my mind, a retrograde step from the old manual method which the user set when they put a new filter in. The displays give up the ghost in 18 months to 2 years, as my current Brita did, a… Read more
The Devil in the Marshalsea by Hodgson Antonia
The Devil in the Marshalsea by Hodgson Antonia
Antonia Hodgson's first novel, set in The Marshalsea debtors prison, made famous in literary fiction by Dickens, has had inevitable `Dickensian' descriptors added in reviews, because of the setting, a certain energy in her writing, and also in connection with the huge cast of raffish characters she employs.

Whilst I enjoyed her verve, `Dickensian' seemed another of those `how-can-we-describe-it' comparisons which have to be less than helpful to the new author. Dickens not only juggled huge casts, he juggled huge and individually memorable casts, by virtue of descriptions which surely and precisely captured and were more than just the size or shape of the individual… Read more
