The Stone Book Quartet
The Stone Book Quartet
Price: £4.49

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliantly written, haunting tales which create resonances with your own (and everybody else's) family history. Well worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good looking boots, 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these for summer/holiday walking and they were advertised as half price. Good looking boots. Pick the right socks as they are just the right size: too thick socks and they can feel tight.Well worth £50, but would not pay full price.

One of the greatest novels of the 19th century - or any century.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fell apart very quickly, 28 Feb. 2014
I had a pair of these as a present from my wish list. They are pretty, if small, but one pearl came away from its post after only a short time and I have returned them. The length of post into the hole is tiny, I'm not surprised it came away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good guide with examples to try, 23 Feb. 2014

This book gives good explanations about different characteristics of water colour paints and their wash effects, and encourages you to 'have a go' with confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good to use, 23 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used this a couple of times for things like grasses and doing a 'woodgrain' effect and it paints very smoothly and evenly. It washes and dries well.

New Official Football Team Snow Domes (Man City FC Stadium)

2.0 out of 5 stars Snowdome without snow, 23 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seems well made but had only a dusting of 'snow' inside so did not give any decent snowstorm effect when shaken. Not good value.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very small despite photo, 20 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a stocking filler for my wife. I was extremely disappointed by the necklace when it arrived as the photo on the website suggests it is chunky. In real life the beads are tiny. The web site photo should contain something to give the scale of the item. I can't recommend this to other prospective purchasers.

5.0 out of 5 stars You feel you are there walking with her, 20 Jan. 2013
I'd recommend this book to people who love walking and those who love NZ. You share the author's experience - the highs and the lows - so closely that it makes it all feel very real. She is a very human and likable person and you enjoy her experiences (or not!) alongside her as she walks and takes real pleasure in the joy of walking in these wonderful, beautiful wild places.


Blood Wedding
Blood Wedding
by P J Brooke
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Holiday Read, 29 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blood Wedding (Paperback)
Having had this book for some time I got the opportunity to read it while travelling to and from Croatia for the weekend. It is a well plotted and well executed novel which holds the attention, builds tension and had me guessing in terms of the identity of the murderor.

Some of the early dialogue seems a bit wooden, particularly when used to introduce background and context, but apart from that the complex narrative flows really well. I am looking forward to reading the next two Max Romero novels now!
