A pleasant read, despite the plot being rather far fetched. The weakest point was the postscript which was quite unreal

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy back cleaning, 18 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a simple solution to the aggravating question of,'How can I wash my back. It is long enough to be passed over your back and the two loofah pads with a little soap on them give the back a good scrub and calms all the itches.

4.0 out of 5 stars An elegant compact machine, 23 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very elegant, compact machine, which has a lot of benefits. Since Windows 8 and Microsoft office are preloaded, it can replace a laptop. I haven't yet found that 32 GB restricting. It has taken a little time to get used to Windows 8, but I ambeginning to like it.
I have two small criticisms.
1. The screen cannot be angled back sufficiently.
2. Since the screen is so small, one has to peer closely at it. Admittedly, using two fingers diagonally, the text can be enlarged.

Seriously, I am very pleased with it

3.0 out of 5 stars Reebus is getting old, 3 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ian Rankin is a master storyteller as ever. I just got the feeling this was a little laboured as if Rankin was feeling his age as much as Johyn REbus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the paper version, but much less bulky, 3 Nov. 2013

This review is from: The Telegraph (Kindle Edition)
For many years I have taken the Weekly Telegraph. The electronic version is nothing like as satisfying but fills the gap

3.0 out of 5 stars The blue eyed boy, 21 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to read a balanced account of this much maligned King.. Markham is a serious scholar. The text is littered with references and quotations. I'm flattered that he thinks his readers able to read the Latin and French quotations and that there is no need for translations.

It is very readable but so biased. No mediaeval king can have been such a paragon of virtue

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad good guy, or vice versa?, 4 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simon Kernick is a great story teller, who keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Denis Milne is wholly believable and indeed likable, despite the things he does. A cracking good read.


The Autobiography of Sergeant William Lawrence A Hero of the Peninsular and Waterloo Campaigns
The Autobiography of Sergeant William Lawrence A Hero of the Peninsular and Waterloo Campaigns
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best first hand accounts of the Peninsular War, 11 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since Sgt Lawrence is quoted so often by all the leading historians, you can be sure that he tells it like it really was. without bravado or relying on Napier's History. It should be on every Peninsular War buff's bookeshelf, or on his/her Kindle

4.0 out of 5 stars Rankin at his best, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tooth And Nail (Kindle Edition)
It is small wonder that Ian Rankin is one of the best selling thriller writers of today. He is a great story teller, characterisation is superb and the reader is left in doubt to the very end about the killer's identity. One assumes that the detail of police procedure and relationships within the service are genuine, they certainly feel that way.

I definitely plan to work my way through all the Rebus books
