The Fifth Horseman
The Fifth Horseman
by Larry Collins
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A fast paced thriller, 16 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fifth Horseman (Paperback)
New York is held to ransom, and whichever choice the President takes will result in untold horror. The clock is ticking...... I read this many years ago on its first publication, and even though world events have changed, it is still worth a read. The intensive research shows on every page, a gripping read. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive cookbook for the styles, 14 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For those interested in the dishes of these regions, this is indispensable. It gives a good grounding into the history of the ingredient's
introduction to the countries, a thorough run down on the ingredients themselves, and page after page of gloriously illustrated recipes
with something for everyone, from the fiery spiced concoctions to some wonderful offerings for those with a sweet tooth.
Meat, fish, sweets, vegetarian dishes, you name it.
I defy anyone who reads this not to find something they would love to try.
Highly recommended, insomuch as I have bought multiple copies for friends as gifts.
And they're still my friends after trying the food.
A must.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great piece of vintage mayhem from a classic crimebusting duo, 3 Jan. 2017

A great piece of vintage mayhem from a classic crimebusting duo. I remember playing it on it's initial release, and it is still a wonderful piece of nostalgia, a little clunky graphically, but that all adds to the charm. Defnitely a keeper.

The Everyday Halogen Oven Cookbook: Quick, Easy And Nutritious Recipes For All The Family
by Sarah Flower
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful book for the Halogen oven 'newbies' out there, 3 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A useful book for the Halogen oven 'newbies' out there, with a good variety of recipes and some important pointers not included in my oven's manual, such as modifying temperature/cooking times and not treating recipe's indicated temperatures and cooking times as gospel. A little trial and error will be involved, but the results are worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guaranteed to cure your mid-life crisis, 8 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With the Sex Pistols et al in the vanguard and the limelight, across the country bands sprung up to peddle their own brand of anger and disillusionment, and here is a collection of some of the best. Anyone with memories of the time will see a couple of familiar names, such as the Mekons and the Killjoys, but there are lesser known gems,too. Some clever lyrics that you wouldn't get away with in any other genre, and the opening lines of 'Mucky pup' should be listened to after lunch, not before. Nice accompanying booklet that gives a real feel for the period. Go on, annoy the neighbours...........

Rare Record Price Guide 2014

Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful for cross reference, 31 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Would be cheaper if they were a little more selective on content, but I only bought it as a cross reference to use alongside Discogs and eBay, plus it's a useful offline reference, since my computer is nowhere near my comfy chair and the fireplace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winning strategies in your pocket, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great little guide, with hints tips and tricks presented in easy to remember bite-sized chunks. As an accompaniment to 'Backgammon for dummies' it is invaluable. I dip into it regularly and my game as a humble beginner has improved immensely.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Value for the money, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nifty little peice of kit, ideal for wi-fi surfing at the pub. The instruction leaflet is dire, but there are plenty of resources on the net to assist anyone unfamiliar with the Android operating system. The battery needs at least three good charges to get it working efficiently. For the price of a weekend out on the town, I can't fault it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like ol' times, 2 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Now THIS is how rock music used to be. Bonamassa effortlessly crosses the threshold from his blues background, Hughes can still kick out a vocal and Bonham runs the powerhouse and drives everything along mercilessly. Derek Sherinian's pedigree on keyboards binds everything together nicely. An album not to be played quietly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have on the basics, 23 Jan. 2013

A worthy addition to an aviator's library, purely on it's longevity. The air hasn't changed, nor the physics, so the book doesn't need to.
Read and learn.
