5.0 out of 5 stars fan"distaff"tastic., 26 Oct. 2014
As a connoisseur of books about both sleeping and the weaving process (particularly the creation of industrial yarn) I was thrilled to see both hobbies combined in such a handsomely illustrated tome. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, although it is always disappointing to read such a beautiful book but to find no mention of either the infamous French spindle or the tiny, but perfectly formed, Orenburg spindle (chuckle). I also enjoy using the word "distaff" in mixed company and in front of priests.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this. Read Alan Moore's comments on ..., 18 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Hercules [DVD] (DVD)
Do not buy this. Read Alan Moore's comments on how they ripped off the author, Steve Moore, and then after refusing to pay him when he was alive, had the brass balls to add a writing credit when he died.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic tale - forget the film - this is a dark compelling story, 14 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The film, a desperate attempt at cashing in on the Potter phenomenon, managed to almost completely miss the point of the book. The book is a brilliantly written story, that can be read as a stand alone book, or as part of a sequence of five. I first read this book as an 11 year old, and returned to it for my niece and nephews. They love it as much as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning, 3 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was entranced by this when it came out on Channel 4 and it has retained its magic. Simply stunning. An awesome mixture of acting, direction, and art.

5.0 out of 5 stars just a cool t shirt, 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I look like a dangerous style icon in this t shirt. The off centre tardis gives me a veneer of cred that makes me very happy

5.0 out of 5 stars Police Procedural/Urban Fantasy! Fabulous!, 26 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic! When confronted by a supernatural threat, how do the police respond? in this instance, by investigating the crime and chasing a suspect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mortdecai - a hero for our times, 23 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
everytime I re-read the trilogy I mourn the fact that Kyril Bonfiglioli only managed to write one other book (The excellent All the Tea in China). His dialogue and inner monlogues are a sheer joy to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could be better, 6 April 2012
really pleased with my Ronnie Corbett long handled shopping bag. It comfortably handles over rough terrain, and is good on corners. However, I cannot help but think that the bag would have been improved if it had a picture of Armando Iannucci on it rather than Ronnie Corbett. If only to improve its fuel efficiency in cold weather.

5.0 out of 5 stars not the traders fault, but Royal Mail, 31 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
further to my previous review, the delays were caused by Royal Mail, not the trader. They sent me proof of posting which I have passed to Royal Mail to investigate

4.0 out of 5 stars very nice but,,,,,, 16 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
initial impressions were great. looks nice, easy to assemble. However - every single pigeon in London has now visited the feeder. Either these pigeons are the Einsteins of the avian world or the feeder is not pigeon proof,as they have now emptied the feeders twice, and are setting up shop, waiting for refills, and leaving feedback notes on their food preferences.
