4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and nostalgic., 30 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Okay - the acting is a bit wooden and the story a little unbelievable - but the scenery and the underlying harshness of life on a small island is breath taking. All in all - you won't get to the end of the film and think that you have totally wasted an hour and a half of your life (like I have done with many modern films).

I also highly recommend that you watch the extras and the 1920's documentary film with commentary is worth the price of the whole dvd. Excellent viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful quality case., 24 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After my new phone had to get mended when a bottle of Worcestershire sauce fell on it, I decided to get a case. I chose this one because it was a nice colour and real leather.

Actually - I am really glad I did and very pleased with the case. It's more of a light tan colour than the orangey colour that shows in the pic. The leather quality and case quality in general is amazing and is a complete joy to touch. It fits my Samsung Galaxy S6 perfectly and does not add much bulk around it. The magnetic clasp shuts and opens very well.

You can fold the case so that the phone stands up on it long edge and this also works well.

It comes in a beautiful "drawer" style box in a soft protective case with a little thank you card. If you are wanting to impress someone with a gift - this will definite do the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are interested in the Eiger, this is the book for you., 9 July 2016

Very interesting and wide focused book about the North face of the Eiger - covering its history, accidents and general information about the various parts of the mountain. Interesting articles from a selection of writers. Also has amazing photos of the Eiger (old and new) which are not found in other books.


The Man on the End of the Rope
The Man on the End of the Rope
by Paul Townend
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read - a story of a quality you don't see often these days, 9 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as it had a good review in "Eiger - the vertical arena". The style of writing is a little of its time but it is an excellent story. Although in part it is predicable, generally the major plot turns are unexpected. The suspense is there all through. The characterisation is generally good. What made this an excellent book for me is that it looks at the question of how far will the media go for a story.

This is not so much about climbing or mountains but about reaction to a story or a profit making opportunity.

I'm very surprised that it wasn't made into a film. It would definitely work as far as the story line goes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating life and a very good book., 29 Aug. 2015

What an interesting life Casanova lead! I thoroughly enjoyed the book though the last third is slightly harder going as he ages and his life becomes more stable. Would recommend to anyone interested in 18th history as well as Casanova. Ian Kelly's book is a very good, entertaining read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good intro book, written for anyone thinking of or just starting their own cafe, 29 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I highly recommend this book if you are thinking about starting up a cafe or coffe shop. It's written by people who have done it themselves and they share very good basic information about what you need to think about and do.

You get good quality information, down to earth examples and suggestions on what to do. They are very good to point out that running a successful cafe is not just about making nice coffee!

3.0 out of 5 stars Kind of lacked something for me, 29 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Psychopath Test (Hardcover)
It's well written and interesting - at least as far as it goes. I was looking for something with a bit more depth and research into psychopathy where as this is more of a single persons exploration via contact with a few professionals and 'sufferers'. It's a fairly quick and entertaining read though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good number pad., 29 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Came from China so took longer to arrive than I was expecting but quality is fine and for less than £4 it's a bargain. Having used it with my laptop, I think I would look to find one with a delete button and maybe arrow keys next time so that I can enter data into a spreadsheet without having to keep going back to the laptop keyboard to correct entries or reposition the cursor. But hey - this one is certainly a good buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin., 29 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have an old Talbot Avalon. The blinds work very well. The suckers are much more effective and easy to use than I thought. When sticking to the window, avoid those little patches where the safety standards kite mark is as the suckers don't work so well there and when removing, push the sucker tabs back on themselves and they release very nicely. Good product and good value (considering the cost of made to fit ones)
