5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Doctor Who series, 27 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this partly to catch up with some episodes I'd missed and partly so I could watch the whole series again. It was a good series but I could have done without the adverts at the beginning of the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a very gripping story about Nina who runs ..., 6 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very gripping story about Nina who runs a B & B on the Isle of Arran and one day gets a call from a solicitor in Bedford saying somebody called John Moore is very ill in a hospice there and has left her his house. She comes down to Bedford to find that John Moore has just died and spends a long time trying to find out who he was, what relation he was to her and why he has left her the house. She gets blackmailing phone calls and letters from somebody who says the house isn't really hers and hinting that John Moore was a paedophile. As time goes on she remembers more and more about the house and especially about the attic room and what happened there.


Eastbourne Street Atlas
Eastbourne Street Atlas
by Geographers A-Z Map Co Ltd
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy-to-use atlas of Eastbourne and the surrounding area, 6 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This street atlas is easy to use, as A-Z atlases usually are. I only needed to get from the station to the seafront and back but it also covers the residential areas and neighbouring towns.


The Brimstone Wedding
The Brimstone Wedding
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good story about two women and their relationships, 1 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of Barbara Vine's better books. The title refers to the thirteenth wedding anniversary of the narrator, Genevieve or Jenny who is a carer in a residential. Apparently the thirteenth is called a brimstone wedding because thirteen's an unlucky number and brimstone's the devil's material. Jenny becomes very friendly with Stella who is one of the residents and is dying. Stella asks her to sell a house she owns, unknown to her late husband or children, where she had been in the habit of meeting her lover, Alan. Jenny uses the house to meet her lover but this relationship and her marriage end badly as had Stella's relationship with Alan. it ends on an optimistic note though.


Sharp Objects
Sharp Objects
Price: £5.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Detective story told by a newspaper reporter with a lot of problems, 1 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sharp Objects (Kindle Edition)
This is a story told from the point of view of a newspaper reporter on a minor Chicago newspaper sent back to her home town to cover two child murders, one recent and one a few years before. She's reluctant to go because she doesn't get on with her mother who still lives there but she goes back and stays with her mother and stepfather for a couple of weeks. She has a romance with a local detective who's investigating the murders. There's a lot about this woman's self-harming and alcoholism. Unfortunately there's a lot of vomiting and descriptions of it so I was very glad to get to the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very readable story told from several different points of vview, 1 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very readable book. It starts off with Oliver describing how he's attacked his wife. As the story unfolds it appears that Oliver's father hadn't treated him very well, sending him to a boarding school not far from where he was going to live with his second wife and their son but not letting him come home. The story is told from the point of view of several people who have known him a long time and describes how he got to this point.


King Solomon's Carpet: Psychological Thriller
King Solomon's Carpet: Psychological Thriller
Price: £3.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Not one of Barbara Vine's better novels, 1 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Normally I like Barbara Vine's novels but I found this one really hard going. The title refers to the London Tube and the book is about a group of people associated with it in some way who all live in an old school called the Cambridge School. One of them is writing a book about underground systems and there's a lot of factual detail about the tube which is quite interesting in a way but holds up what little action there is. There's also a group of buskers and a group of boys who like to ride on top of the trains until one of them falls off and gets killed. Unfortunately I found it very hard to identify with any of these people and the action doesn't really get going till near the end.


Mr. Turner (Two-Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [2014]
Mr. Turner (Two-Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [2014]
Dvd ~ Timothy Spall

3.0 out of 5 stars Good film about Turner, 15 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Timothy Spall is very good as Turner in this film. I hadn't known anything about Turner before and hadn't realised he was such an ordinary man although he was a great painter. There's rather more about his private life than about his paintings. I found it rather slow-going and it needed some concentration. Maybe it would have been better to have seen it in the cinema without any distractions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely heartwarming story, 15 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bring Me Home (Kindle Edition)
This is a very good story about Charlie who takes over his father's Scottish manor house when his father marries again, to a woman who prefers the city. Charlie marries his childhood friend and has a son. His wife dies after six years and he's left running the estate and bringing up his son. When his father dies his stepmother insists that the manor house should belong to her and tries to have Charlie and his son turned out. All is eventually resolved in a rather surprising way. I hadn't read any of Alan Titchmarsh's books before but I've now bought "The Haunting" as well.

No Night is Too Long
No Night is Too Long
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story about an unconventional love life, 15 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good story, as Barbara Vine's books usually are. The hero starts off by saying he's haunted by a man that he has killed. Then we hear about his love life, first with a girl then with an older man and later with a woman who turns out to be the man's twin sister. We have to wait till fairly near the end to find whether he has really killed the man or not and which person is really the love of his life.
