2.0 out of 5 stars Started off okay, then fizzled out, 5 Dec. 2013

I couldn't believe it when the book ended. I had it on my Kindle, and thought it had just not downloaded properly. It could have been good!

3.0 out of 5 stars A very slow book, 5 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Somehow the character of Rebus was just "overdone" in this book. He seemed too sad a character, not the usual Rebus of the past. Although he can still solve crimes, the way he gets there is just too outdated and would not be tolerated today. I think this will be the last Rebus novel I will read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Chinese culture and customs explained in detail, made for an interesting and informative read., 26 Aug. 2013

This review is from: The Corpse Reader (Kindle Edition)
The book was really enthralling from the first paragraph. I love books about historical China, and this book had facts and fiction mingled together very successfully. There were one or two off comments, for instance during a firework display the author wrote "pyrotechnics" and later called a finger a "pinkie". That said, if you like a good mystery, and you are interested in early Chinese culture, then this is the book to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and engrossing book about women's struggle for freedom from a convent!, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sacred Hearts (Kindle Edition)
This is the story of a group of women, "holed" up in a convent. Most girls were admitted to the convent against their wishes, by their family, for one reason or another, The main character had wanted to be a doctor, (impossible for a woman in those days) and eventually became the convent "medic". The story is engrossing and depicts how hard life was for women to have any sort of life of their own choosing before feminists intervened .... A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, funny, beautiful !, 8 Jun. 2013

This review is from: Stella - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Loved the first series, which was very funny. This second series was less funny, (laugh out loud stuff) but plenty of smiles, and nods of understanding. Portrayed life as it is today for a young mother with children, not much money, living in a close community. Happened to be Wales, but could have been anywhere. I can't wait for Series 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars A comfort read, 8 Jun. 2013

Not my usual book, thought it was a thriller. Started reading and became so engrossed, I decided to download the sequel. A "chick flick" of the twenty first century. A forty year old, career woman obsessed with finding a husband. Great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous series, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved it. As an ex-pat Welsh person, I realized how much I missed Wales. The scenery was wonderful, and seeing the patchwork of terraced houses on the hills, made me long to go home! The characters developed as the series progressed. Each character has a definite part to play in the success of the series. This was a series, like Gavin and Stacey, that portrayed the Welsh people as they really are ....loving, funny, happy, family and community orientated.

I can't wait to watch series three.

This story is like a warm blanket - comforting and gentle. I laughed and I cried .... I have already recommended the read to my daughter, and will definitely read it again in years to come. Wonderful book.

A really detailed outfit, together with suitcase and Wellington boots. Paddington is just the cutest of bears and this bear surpassed my expectations.

Fantastic value for money.
