4.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully written account, 6 April 2016
This review is from: Democracy: A Life (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Paul Cartledge has written a concise and scholarly account of a concept that is banded about too often by politicians, tracing it from its origins through to today. Highly recommended both for the general reader and the student.


AEG TG340 Electric Portable Table Grill and Hot Plate, 2200 W
AEG TG340 Electric Portable Table Grill and Hot Plate, 2200 W
Offered by V_deals
Price: £78.90

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful portable table grill, 26 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This portable table grill is not cheap but it doesn't have a sturdy high-quality feel to it. Also, it is not non-stick. However, it is light, easy to use, heating up very quickly, and you can both fry and grill food on it. It also OK to put in the dishwasher. Recommended.


Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Sensitive Razor Blades - Pack of 4
Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Sensitive Razor Blades - Pack of 4
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A high-quality smooth shave, 4 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For quite a few years I have used the Gillette Fusion razor but this rivals it and might even be better. It produces a very nice smooth shave without nicks. Highly recommended.


AmazonBasics 15.4" Felt Laptop Sleeve - Light Grey
AmazonBasics 15.4" Felt Laptop Sleeve - Light Grey
Price: £12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Value for money, 4 Mar. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Considering the price, this AmazonBasics Laptop Sleeve is very good value for money. Too many laptop cases and sleeves are ridiculously overpriced for what you get. The felt material and the colour are attractive, and you also get two back pockets for storing smaller items like a smartphone or earbuds. Recommended.

Go Stationery Shimmer A6 Gold Chevron Notebook - Black
Price: £5.45

4.0 out of 5 stars Striking notebook design, 13 Feb. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nicely produced little notebook with a striking gold chevron cover design.The pages are faintly lined and are of very good quality. For the price there should have been an elastic band to keep the pages together like there are with some other brands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable with a nice sound, 13 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are very comfortable headphones to wear, lightweight,durable and easily adjustable.I have used them with my Kindle fire so far and the sound quality was very good, but perhaps could be expected to be a little better given the highish price. The facility to adjust the volume, move to next track etc is useful. The instructions are on the web rather than provided as hard copy but they are very easy to find on the website.


The Enlightenment: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
The Enlightenment: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
by John Robertson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An illuminating introduction, 13 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent addition to the Very Short Introduction series. I have read a number of them now and this is one of the best. Robertson really knows his stuff and blows away popular misconceptions of what the Enlightenment was about,surveying a huge number of key ideas and writers in a readable way. Highly recommended.


Stories and Poems (Oxford World's Classics)
Stories and Poems (Oxford World's Classics)
by Rudyard Kipling
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.78

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid anthology, 13 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very good anthology of Kipling's short stories and poetry. One of the best things about it is that there are very useful notes. They really help explain some terms that might be obscure to the modern reader and illuminate Kipling's intentions. There is also a very entertaining and informative introduction. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is that, as other reviewers have commented, the print size is rather small although that is true of a lot of Oxford World's Classics. Recommended if you have not read any Kipling before and are curious about what all the fuss is about.


Gold Fame Citrus
Gold Fame Citrus

3.0 out of 5 stars A new twist to the dystopian tale, 13 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Gold Fame Citrus (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A world without water is stunningly evoked in Gold Fame Citrus through the story of Luz and Ray. But this is predominantly a literary novel rather than SF and Watkins's mannered style will not be to everyone's taste.
