Still reading this one but finding it gripping. Cannot put it down. Beautifully researched and written. More amazing characters from English history.

Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing story based on potential truth, 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved this one. Great story based on circumstantial evidence but plausible all the same. Keeps you wondering if the main character could have been Elizabeth I 's illegitimate daughter, and does not presume to reach a conclusion either way.

This review is from: Labyrinth [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
While the DVD min-series was entertaining, it had lost some of the detail in translation from novel to movie. Enjoyable nonethless.

This review is from: The Wonders Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I used this series as part of my teaching of the Universe. A superb resource. Brian Cox cleverly explains the most abstract astronomical phenomena in a manner that everyone can comprehend. Brillant.


The Limpopo Academy Of Private Detection (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency)
The Limpopo Academy Of Private Detection (No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency)
by Alexander McCall Smith
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Another triumph, 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have loved every one of the No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. McCall Smith always manages to deliver subtle moral messages through fascinating, engaging scenarios. His characters are completely believable and all are likable, even the villains. He perfectly encapsulates the psyche of his protagonist and is true to her personality throughout the entire series, while still allowing her to grow and develop. His portrayal of the culture and history of his obviously beloved Botswana is authentic.
Can't wait for the next installment.

The Cleverness Of Ladies (Quick Reads 2012)
by Alexander McCall Smith
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of Alexander McCall Smith's Precious reads, 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an obsessive reader of The Ladies' Detective Agency Series, this fell well short of of expectations. Hope there's a new addition to the precious series.
