Bionaire BU1300 Compact Ultrasonic Humidifier
Bionaire BU1300 Compact Ultrasonic Humidifier
Price: £34.22

4.0 out of 5 stars UNOBTRUSIVE AIR, 25 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is too early to say whether or not the Bionaire BU 1300 is going to help in my battle against nocturnal dry mouth, but it is without doubt unobtrusive, very quiet, simple to use,and takes up very little space. It might work, probably could work, and certainly the cold steam it emits is strangely reassuring, suggesting it WILL work. I am happy to give it time and see what transpires.


The House of Silk: The Bestselling Sherlock Holmes Novel
The House of Silk: The Bestselling Sherlock Holmes Novel
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars PALE SILK, 25 Feb. 2017
I have long been an admirer of Anthony Horowitz; with his vast output on TV, and novels,he is both prolific and talented. As a One Book Wonder as an author myself, I admire his sheer energy is writing so much.However,although I enjoyed The House of Silk as a novel, as a Sherlock Holmes adventure it was far too flat,was never more than a mild pastiche,and left me disappointed.
Sherlock Holmes must be obdurate,self-centered, oblivious of the feelings of others, yet still hold our interest and unthinking devotion. The Holmes in The House of Silk is too mild, too distant, too altruistic. Holmes must be impetuous,inspired,fired up, and at the end when the solution is revealed, must produce the rabbit out of the hat with a flourish, not merely report his findings.
I feel disinclined to try Horowitz's second Holmes book - Moriarty. I think I shall stick to the originals, which,though sometimes plodding - for Conan Doyle is only half the writer Horowitz is - are the vehicles for the Sherlock Holmes towards whom I have always felt drawn.


Paul Temple And The Madison Mystery (BBC Audio Crime)
Paul Temple And The Madison Mystery (BBC Audio Crime)
by Francis Durbridge
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £20.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Eight Gold-plated Episodes, 23 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a collection of fourteen of these Paul Temple dramatised audio CDs and I think this is the best of the ones made with the original sound effects but a new cast.
I like the way the characters are better fleshed out, and there's more than enough action.This time I didn't find myself imagining the regular Paul Temple and Steve, but happily accepted the new cast.The period atmosphere is maintained throughout and there is never any confusion between the voices of the characters.
An excellent addition to my audio archive.

Fine leads - male and female - with an involving storyline and even excellent poetry. The writing is excellent, and the wartime atmosphere nicely maintained. Fine entertainment. With Redgrave and Mills in harness how could it fail?

4.0 out of 5 stars PURE ESCAPISM, 2 Dec. 2015

This review is from: The Wooden Horse [DVD] (DVD)
Anthony Steele always lacked something in his acting, but he is counterbalanced by those around him. The film is full of P.O.W. stereotypes
which adds rather than subtracts from the film's charm.It's a story based on actual incidents, and should be enjoyed both as an entertainment and as an example of the resolute inventiveness of men trapped in the claustrophobic and uncertain confines of imprisonment by the enemy.
As I get older, the film seems to grow in charm, and I would urge anybody who enjoys wartime escape pictures to sit down and savour each moment of this one.

Kept me reading and there's a glint of humour in the eye of the author. Easy bedtime read and nothing gruesome.
