4.0 out of 5 stars TWO cards and cash more like it, 23 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Strong durable case, protected my phone when I dropped. However, TWO cards and cash would be a better description of what it can hold. Money does not fit if I have three cards.


The Line (Witching Savannah Book 1)
The Line (Witching Savannah Book 1)
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An exciting premise which is worth the read., 18 July 2016
A thrilling story with magic and mystery, set in the sweltering city of Savannah, where the Taylor family work to protect the magic of the world, and the world from magic. But with such an eclectic mix of personalities in this family, some people are bound to be rubbed the wrong way, including hoodoo worker Mother Jilo, who has more than a few dark spells up her sleeve. As Maisie wonders if her destiny may not be as she thought, a shocking murder will reveal a few secrets that will shock her to the core.

There are some issues with the flow of the language, pacing and the volume of events and characters, so it could have benefited from some editing. But I think it would actually make a great TV show, and I can't wait to read the next one.


The Uninvited
The Uninvited
by Dorothy Macardle
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.39

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not the great gothic novel it is made out to be, 11 July 2016

This review is from: The Uninvited (Paperback)
An interesting story of hauntings which is lost among the unexplained fascination of the brother and sister duo with the character of Stella and the main character's grandstanding of himself and his theatre friends.

The Secret Healer

2.0 out of 5 stars Melodrama & Mary Sues, 11 July 2016
This review is from: The Secret Healer (Kindle Edition)
I gave up before reaching the climax. The language was horribly anachronistic (though this may be a translation issue) and the author's approach to showing and telling was frightfully inconsistent. Large, important crucial moments are glossed over in seconds, while pages are devoted to the most trivial of the protagonist's musings or experience.

And the plots go beyond drama to sheer melodrama. It is impossible to feel any sympathy for the protagonist as most of the stuff that goes wrong in her life is a direct result of her own actions and foolishness i.e continuing to practice healing when she has seen at least three times how dangerous its, trusting stupid people who've betrayed her trust before. And we're supposed to believe she discovered hypnotism and it's effective in labour in the C14th?

She's also a bit of Mary Sue, learning healing quickly, almost without instruction and then learns the art of fine sewing in next to no time?

2.0 out of 5 stars good tips, shame about the price, 18 Feb. 2016
The author shared some really excellent tips and techniques that can not only be applied to book marketing but any kind of promotional activity. All of which could have been shared in a 750 word blog post, not a book charging £6.49.

Here's a marketing tip for you - make this book free since it's mmostly an ad for your other book and services.

4.0 out of 5 stars Careful of really hot drinks, 10 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Strong and stylish, this is perfect for cups of tea in the office. I find though that the sleeve doesn't do a great job of protecting your hands from the heat of your drink and you certainly couldn't walk about with this in hand until it cools.


Macbeth
Macbeth
Dvd
Price: £2.49

5.0 out of 5 stars For Shakespeare fans and fans of beautiful cinema, 10 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Macbeth (Amazon Video)
Wonderful modern adaptation with brilliant action scenes and a wonderful visual quality. I was unsure about Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth but her "out, damn spot" was worthy of an Oscar in my opinion. Disappointed at the reduced role of the witches (double, double is my favourite scene and this is cut) and wondered why there were four of them, but it didn't detract from the overall scope of the film.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't work!, 23 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to water the plants in my office when I went on a weeks holiday. Don't work at all. Even measured the level of water in the beaker out of scientific curiosity to see how much water they needed in a week, found they hadn't taken any from these things. Two healthy plants, both dead.


Research for Media Production (Media Manuals)
Research for Media Production (Media Manuals)
Price: £23.93

3.0 out of 5 stars Outdated for 2015, 23 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Obviously written at a time when computers weren't prolific, talks about the danger of Internet research as was the line of thinking ten years ago, therefore doesn't include much information on modern research. Does give a very good, yet quite shallow, description of the work of a researcher and their techniques. Quite expensive, might be better value to purchase a video production or broadcast journalism book which will cover much of the same points.
