5.0 out of 5 stars The Veil is Lifted., 28 July 2016
Liz Houle has all the qualities of a good investigative journalist: perspicuous, insightful and determined to get to the truth. Her narrative is pithy and straightforward, no turgid BS anywhere. Courageous, too, as the original book by Amanda Knox has circa 450 pages with literally dozens of lies, half-truths and omissions on almost every page, so this undertaking was a phenomonally daunting task, not for the faint-hearted!

We have to admire the author for having the stamina to read through reams and reams of Amanda Knox misinformation, and, not only that, being able to expose the lies that lie therein, many wrapped in bigger lies, such as the main prop, 'the prosecutor was out to get me because he was fixated on me', when the reality is, the case was tied up pretty quickly, with no other suspects being sought.

This book lifts the veil.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Lisa McKenzie is a native of a Northern council estate, thus she - as a qualified social worker - is uniquely suited to report on today's estates, having face to face access with her subject matter.

I thought the book lapsed into sociology-speak quite a few times, but then I am a lay person, whilst most of her readers are likely to be fellow sociologists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trendy, Faux Fur-lined Hood is Fab, Soft, Well-Designed but a little High-Waisted if you are tall., 24 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought it mainly for the trendy faux fur-lined hood and this is fantastic. Good value for money for the price. The colour is more navy than royal blue. Texture feels nice and soft. 30% cotton 70% polyester. Fur lining is detachable, which is useful for machine wash of the jacket. Being tall, I found it a bit high-waisted. The buttons across the neck do up nicely and is well-designed. The sleeve buttons allow for a thick wrist (I guess the assumption being that larger size denotes, stockier figure) which was too loose for me, but it doesn't really matter.

All in all for £26 VFM. Covered my bum. Felt snug immediately.

Can recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars The principle behind the water tower and enabling the water to release cool steam steadily over up to 24 hours is wonderful ..., 16 Nov. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's a well designed product. The principle behind the water tower and enabling the water to release cool steam steadily over up to 24 hours is wonderful engineering and well-thought out. It comes with a sample Vick vapour pad which inserts at the side. It combines with the steam to produce the characteristic Vick menthol aroma - a mixture of eucalyptus and herbs.

However, when I went to my local Boots - a large branch - to ask for a refill of Vicks Vapor Pads, I was informed, "They don't make them any more"!

The store was very busy at the time, and I m sure he is mistaken.

Four stars from me, because as an asthmatic I don't like humidity. However, I am sure it will be welcome when I have my usual cold.
