3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing plot, 28 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Racketeer (Kindle Edition)
A number of the characters have two aliases. Too many law enforcement and government officials. Hard to keep track of who is who. Characters are wooden and the narrative is filled with out dated American brash speak which gets very irritating . At times it reads like a spoof

4.0 out of 5 stars Would have been 5 stars......., 17 Aug. 2016

.......but, surprisingly, some parts of the text have grammatical and syntax errors. It is an absorbing read with the author showing empathy for human frailty. At the same time Alan Bennett is admirably frank about his feelings concerning his relatives. There is a close look at the social class system prior to 1970 and the solid family culture which was especially strong in Northern England . I developed admiration for certain of his female elders who endured great hardship for many years without complaint Puts our wimpish society to shame
Good to know that mine was not the only "odd" family with funny ideas

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth sticking with, 9 July 2016

This review is from: Last Orders (Kindle Edition)
At the outset there are too many characters and it is not clear who they are. Gets confusing. The book definitely improves and the suspense fills as it progresses. Story a bit somber and depressing, reminding me of the constant human struggle in a tough world. I finished though with admiration for the courage of the war generation


Over-Focused Anxiety and Depression: Effective Treatment for Excessive Rumination and Worry
Over-Focused Anxiety and Depression: Effective Treatment for Excessive Rumination and Worry
Price: £1.30

2.0 out of 5 stars Okay but amateur, 24 Jun. 2016

This might have been a good introduction for someone first experiencing mental health difficulties in order for them or a relative to look at the options available . However it strikes me as dated.
It talks about self esteem, from which therapists have been moving away in recent years in favour of self compassion and mindfulness mainly because self esteem involves " comparison" and can be demanding mental work.
The book is cheap so one cannot expect a lot. The author is described as a freelance writer but does not mention any mental health qualifications.
As the title mentions over focussing I expected a little more on techniques to deal with this and rumination, but again, the writer holds no therapy qualifications so perhaps should not attempt this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs spiral ring bind, 18 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A helpful book for beginner although I already had some basic knowledge. The only thing I would alter is that the book is flat bind and a spiral design at the spine would improve it and make it easier to use on a music stand

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard fabric but generally okay, 21 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Satisfactory solution now manufacturers skimp on all materials as much as they possibly can so shoulders straps are often too short and bra bands too tight around the rib cage. These extenders do the job all right but they could have used a softer fabric . This wide elastic is quite hard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever gadgets which do the job, 21 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very effective little gadgets to keep bra shoulder straps in place the whole time and prevent that annoying constant slipping. Wish these had been available years ago. Only slight difficulty is getting them to stay put whilst you are actually putting the bra on, unless of course you have someone to help you. Once in place you can forget your bra and show off your bustline

A bit sticky and tacky so does not feel that great on the scalp but it is useful on occasion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relax while you work, 4 Jan. 2016

All the tracks are beautiful. Perfect to have playing in the kitchen as you work. What I find particularly good is the way many of the tracks have small sections of discreet vocals, and this reminds me of the original song without it "muscling in" too much or taking over the classical interpretation.
