Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book, 2 Nov 2013
I enjoyed this book enormously. It was a riveting read. Written in 'real time' to give characters a chance to show you what they were thinking was a brilliant idea that brought them all to life, maintaining both pace and suspense. The factual aspects seemed to fit well with my general knowledge and I am sure were perfectly accurate. The style of writing made this aspect very convincing. The best book I have read this last year.
30MA INSULATED RCD SPUR by Palmer Riley
30MA INSULATED RCD SPUR by Palmer Riley
This RCD socket took a whole day to fit simply because of the strange arrangement of the screw fixings inside. No sooner had you got one wire fixed and were trying to fix a second when the first would pop out of its screw fix. This happened repeatedly because the screw fixings were cramped inside and not strong enough to hold down a wire firmly enough. Eventually, after many attempts, we got it sorted and it works well enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful artistry, 2 Nov 2013
I have been looking for a set of animal cards and a set of druid cards and this beautifully illustrated set satisfies my interest on both counts. I was a little disappointed in the book and feel there must be more to say about the chosen animals and their significance and would like to learn more. I have read somewhere that there was a much more detailed hard back book. Does anyone know where it can be found? I have used the cards on several occasions and, although they are large to handle, I find them quite revealing even though the book lacks detail.
