5.0 out of 5 stars A great short story., 12 Jun 2013
Really enjoyed this one!

Often I have trouble with the pace of short stories - either being too slow or too fast. This one was great, read the whole thing straight through as it clipped along very nicely holding my attention. Amount of content was good too (another avoided pitfall) and the author avoided compromising the story with unnecessary tangents. Plot was great - it's quite unusual for me to read anything straight through so it must have been good! Also enjoyed the first person perspective. That's not something I've ever personally been able to master but the author has really used it well to enhance the feel of the story.

Full marks from me.

I enjoyed the easy style and fitted perfectly with my daily commute. The only niggles I… Read more

Bought this as it was recommended on the back of a packet of peas that I planted a few weeks ago as an organic slug barrier.

Didn't want to kill the slugs, merely deter them, so this seemed ideal!

Using over half the box, I built an almost inch high barrier around my pea seedlings, and area of no more than half a metre square.

Disappointingly, upon looking a morning or two later, all my poor seedlings had been munched, even though the barrier appeared to be intact. The box recommends that you reapply the grit after gardening or heavy rain, but you'd use so many boxes - especially if you had a bigger area to protect than I did!

The box also… Read more
