5.0 out of 5 stars Run out and get one, 10 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great watch am a big fan.

Have had a Tom Tom Runner (good display, hard to use), Garmin Forerunner 10 (lousy battery), Garmin Forerunner 220 (great watch) Garmin Forerunner classic orange and blue (great at the time but bit complicated and hated the dongle), Timex something (never gain), Nike (great watch loved it, why did you stop making them, or having Tom Tom kale them for you?) ... but this Garmin 35 is great ... am an older runner but can read the display hooray ... love the built in heart rate monitor and step counter, goodbye fitbit, love the walk/run function as a Galloway fan, and the Garmin Connect software is working well (it didn't always in past years). Yep, highly recommended and great value too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Go for the Garmin 35 instead. Much better watch, cooler features, easier to use too, 10 Dec. 2016
Its ok ... but I don't use it anymore.

I bought it as my Nike GPS watch eventually died ... a watch i loved, with was made my Tom Tom while everyone around me swore by Garmin. The display on the TomTom like the Nike is easy to read but the buttons are non intuitive to use and annoying and the charging device a pain in "a".

Much prefer Garmin 35 or my older Garmin 220.

1.0 out of 5 stars THE WALLIAM'S WORST BOOK, 15 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a huge fan of David Walliams, from Little Britain to Grandpa's Great Escape and all the books before that.

The comparison with Roald Dahl, no doubt aided by the initial illustrations by Quinten Blake and then Tony Ross, is a good one, though in fairness to the master, the student owes much to the master and hasn't done more than bring his oeuvre into the new millennium.

Sadly this latest volume adds nothing to either Walliams or Dahl's legacy. A collection of pen sketches of naughty kids, the mini-tales are weak. From massive flood causing dribbles to gigantic bogeys/bogies, at times, or most of them the quality of the illustrations and paper-stock ( the first hard-back edition) far, FAR, outshone the writing, imagination or enjoyment of the written word.

I'm a fan, not a critic, so am sorry this came out. Even the inclusion of Raj Feels like a "throw on" to gain loyal readers empathy, but sadly back-fires.


Broken Idol: Volume 7 (An Inspector McLean Mystery)
Broken Idol: Volume 7 (An Inspector McLean Mystery)
by David W. Rudlin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.95

5.0 out of 5 stars McLean's - Brighter Smiles Between The Covers, 19 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another cracking good read, no.7 in fact, in the Inspector McLean series. Great gift idea for detection fiction lovers. This, like most of the McLean series, are stand alone novels, so here is a page turning exciting read even if the characters are new to you.

This latest tale is set in Tokyo, behind the wealth, politeness and traditions lie several darker sides spun into a dark but compelling read. Adventure meets exoticism, epicurean delights and spot-on detection wherever McLean and his team appear. I loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific read, would make a brilliant and topical film too!, 17 Dec. 2014
I confess to two henious crimes, a) buying this on Kindle after buying the previous four McClan mysteries on paper and b) writing a review while still only 3/4 in.

"Why?" you might ask.

Because its so damn good and at this season of gift-giving and holiday breaks it would be mean to rob you of the chance to enjoy a good read.

I've lived all five volumes out so far, but this is the best ... Topical, humorous in parts, well-rounded characters and a great tale that anyone with a phone, pc, or internet access will be able to relate to.

Excellent book.

Well done Mr. Rudlin. Hope no.6 is not far away.


Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlike his other works and a very good read, 10 Nov. 2014
It's very tempting to compare this book with Murakami's 1Q84, in which I suggest "don't"!

It's shorter and not as multi-layered but its a very good book in its own right and rather a sensitive one at that.

I enjoyed it, recommend it and think it deserves a 4.6 which makes it a 5.


Plot Twist (An Inspector McLean Mystery)
Plot Twist (An Inspector McLean Mystery)
by David W. Rudlin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.50

5.0 out of 5 stars What are you waiting #4? A romp of a read!, 30 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you haven't discovered David Rudlin's Inspector McLean series yet, you are in for a treat. If you have, this is a cracking 4th volume in the series and a sequel to the first one. The nefarious villain Clifford Watkins turns up early, but dead (that's not a spoiler).
The question is "who dun it?" And that is where a page-turning, compelling twist to the plot comes in.

Highly enjoyable, highly recommended. Good plot and I have gotten to know and love the three key protagonists, Ian McLean and his two sidekicks Thomas and Sally, more and more with each volume. Author ... please keep them coming. Hope they make it to TV one day (soon).

1.0 out of 5 stars People who bought this book seem to have read and enjoyed a whole load of other books I loved too ..., 26 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wasn't tickled.

People who bought this book seem to have read and enjoyed a whole load of other books I loved too ( well Amazon would know and their recommendations are normally excellent). This time the algorithm was off or I was or the book was. I struggled for about 20 pages then threw it away. Most books I enjoy I pass on to friends but this one no.

Maybe I was in a weird mood. Maybe not. Not a fan anyway.

Very funny read. Maybe not quite up there in the humor stakes in comparison with The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of The Window but a cracker nonetheless.
