Babydan Double Cabinet Lock - 4 Pack
Babydan Double Cabinet Lock - 4 Pack

3.0 out of 5 stars Check the internal length, 23 Oct. 2014
The locks work fine, easy to put on and take off and protect baby from cupboard contents and vice-versa.
The only problem is the length. The only length that matters is the distance between the two "jaws" and you cannot work that out from the information on the website. The total length is irrelevant. In practice they work fine on handles close together as shown in the illustration but not if they are much farther apart, as for instance drawer to cupboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prospero's Mirror, 2 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Prospero's Mirror (Paperback)
This brilliant book was a great read from the first page to the last. A fascinating tale of detection and mystery unfolds against the backdrop of life in an Oxford college. It can be read on many levels, as a tribute to the great ghost stories of M.R. James and the tales of Edgar Allan Poe, as an exploration of the Renaissance world of Shakespeare's Prospero and John Dee, as a psychological investigation into our deepest fears, loyalties, jealousies and dreams, as a study of character and place − all meticulously researched and deeply considered, then blended into a narrative of verve and pace that carries the reader eagerly through to its surprising but satisfying resolution. Beautifully written and considerately printed (perfect to read on the train). I heartily commend this book, which you will finish all too soon, and I await Donaldson's next offering with eager anticipation.


Elegies
Elegies
by John Swinnerton Phillimore
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 17 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elegies (Paperback)
It was not at all clear from the description that this would be a floppy over-sized reprint in blurred ink. I was minded to send it back, but life moved on and i accepted the loss. However I shall be more careful next time I think I am buying an old book (1906) that it isn't just a blurred copy of it!
I was also disappointed that the volume was translation only, not a parallel text - but that was perhaps my own oversight in not researching adequately what Phillimore had provided.

A Chance Meeting: Intertwined Lives of American Writers and Artists, 1854-1967
by Rachel Cohen
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Moments of real meeting, 18 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating account of historic figures percieved through a series of unexpected lenses, this book will surprise and delight, It remains firmly rooted in fact and is researched in detail. Rachel Cohen is an author to follow. She has given us a beatifully written journey through the lives of American writers and artists, which is of intrinsic interest in its subject matter but also a thoroughly good read.
