I'm Travelling Alone
I'm Travelling Alone
by Samuel Bjork
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent debut, 26 April 2015
This review is from: I'm Travelling Alone (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm Travelling Alone is the debut novel by Norwegian author Samuel Bjork. The plot concerns a suicidal ex-detective called Mia Kruger (no relation to Freddy) who is enlisted by her ex partner Holger Munch to work one final case. A six year old girl has been found hanging from a tree. Around her neck is a tag with the words "I'm travelling alone". Can Mia's brilliant mind fathan out the deranged killer before more people die.

I enjoy Scandinavian crime books and I'm Travelling Alone is no exception. Author Samuel Bjork has created a pair of interesting characters in Kruger and Munch, as well as a deranged killer. The plot is interesting with a number of nice twists. This book is apparantly the first in a series and I look forward to reading more of Samuel Bjork's books.

4.0 out of 5 stars French Argento blu ray., 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Four Flies On Grey Velvet is not one of Dario Argento's more well known movies. This French blu ray is uncut and in widescreen. The print is excellent and the film stars Michael Brandon (Dempsey And Makepeace, Doctor Who, Hustle and numerous other tv shows). The blu ray is region B coded and plays in English Language. The packaging is in French and features the original poster art. In fact the only slightly annoying point is the non removable French subtitles. Apart from that this is a very enjoyable early Dario Argento Giallo film (his third film) and well worth watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars French blu ray, 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tenebre (Blu Ray) (Blu-ray)
Tenebre is my favorite Dario Argento film. I was hooked on the film when I watched it on video many years ago. This is a typical Argento film with some fantastic gory murders and set pieces. The original UK video (Videomedia I think released it) was banned as a video nasty. The French blu ray has a fantastic quality print with great picture and sound. The blu ray is also uncut and region B coded and will play on UK machines. In fact the only down side to this blu ray is the non removable French sub titles which is a tad annoying. The packaging is also in french but the film plays in English. So all in all an excellent blu ray of a fantastic Dario Agento film.


Maclaren Harmony Cinnamon and Clove Candle
Maclaren Harmony Cinnamon and Clove Candle
Price: £20.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice and refreshing scent., 23 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Maclaren Harmony and Clove Candle is a nice product. I found the scent nice and refreshing. This continues to smell nice when the candle is lit but is not too overpowering. The candle has around 30 hours burning time and comes nicely presented in a glass container. This candle is not the cheapest on the market but adds a refreshing scent to the room and is ideal when relaxing after a tough day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent ITV thriller with a superb cast, 23 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In 1991 Jane witnessed her Mother's murder and saw her killers face. Twenty-three years later Jane (played superbly by Claire Goose - Death In Paradise, Waking The Dead and The Secret Smile) is now married with a daughter. She is still haunted by her Mother's murder and the killers face. One day she goes to the local hospital for a routine check up and while she comes face to face with a man who she is convinced is her Mother's killer. That man is Andrew Rawlings (Peter Firth - Spooks) a doctor and family man. Jane is convinced he is the killer, but is he in fact innocent ?

Undeniable is an enjoyable thriller shown in two parts. To be honest the second part does seem a little rushed and would have been better suited as a three parter. But I really enjoyed it and thought the supporting cast which includes Pippa Haywood (The Brittas Empire and Scott & Bailey) and Robert Pugh (Doctor Who, The Lakes and The Shadow Line) were excellent as were the main actors. The picture and sound quality are excellent but there are no extra features which is a shame. So all in all and very good enjoyable ITV thriller and well worth watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Region 1 coded, American dubbed voices - but still entertaining, 18 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter loves Paw Patrol and was looking forward to watching the Winter Rescues dvd. The dvd is region 1 coded as it is American so please make sure your dvd machine can play American dvds. The other thing to mention is this dvd has the American dubbed voices to the characters rather than the English dubbed voices. This took a little getting used to. The episodes on the dvd are Pups Save Christmas, Pups On Ice, Pups And The Snow Monster, Pups Save The Treats, Pups Get A Lift, Pups Get A Rubble and Pups Save A Walrus. So you get a good selection of episodes which kept my daughter entertained which is the main thing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Full of unlikeable characters - hard going, 18 April 2015
This review is from: What She Left (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was really looking forward to reading this book but have to admit that like so many other reviewers, I found the book hard going. The plot itself is interesting but the format of having the story told by emails, twitter etc did not make an enjoyable read. The other issue was the characters in What She Left. Usually in a typical novel there are some characters that are likeable and some that are not. In this book none of the characters are likeable or easy to bond with. I don't know about you, but I find reading a book full of unlikeable characters hard work. I wish I could have enjoyed T R Richmond's book more. With any luck Richmond's next book will be much more enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spanish blu ray UNCUT and region B - excellent., 10 April 2015
This Spanish blu ray is UNCUT and includes the gore that was cut from the American blu ray. The print is excellent and in 1.85 apx widescreen The packaging is in Spanish but thats nothing to worry about - it's nice to have the original poster art on the cover. The blu ray plays in English language with removable subtitles. Being a Spanish blu ray it is region B coded which means it should play on most UK machines. This is one of my own favourite Amicus films and features a top notch cast which includes Tom Baker, Terry Thomas and Denholm Elliott. The same company have also released Tales From The Crypt on blu ray which is also uncut and region B coded.

Airmax Anti Snoring Nasal Dilator
Airmax Anti Snoring Nasal Dilator
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Cuts down my good ladies snoring, 3 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My good lady snores - it's like sleeping next to an erupting volcano at times. So I was pleased to get this Airmax anti snoring nasal dilator was most welcome. According to the wife the nasal dilator does fit but does take a little getting used to. As other reviewers have pointed out it doesn't always stay in while you are asleep and moving around. But all in all this is a good item and has cut down on my good ladies snoring which is the main thing.
