5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Fantasy Franco!, 16 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good mix of styles, all played in Morone's inimitable style. Some not as polished as later recordings, but the whole album is a delight to the ears. Recommended to fans and guitarists wanting something to motivate, without complication or other instruments to dilute the experience, of an acoustic guitar played with a love of the sound it makes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping the rain off..., 16 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although about the cheapest cover you can get, this was well packaged and more than up to the job - the bag it comes in can be used to store when it's not in use. The seams were sturdy and it fitted perfectly. I added pop studs for easy fo fix or removal and to allay my paranoia about it blowing off, but if you for and forget for a few months it comes with ties that do the job. A simple product, no complaints!

5.0 out of 5 stars QM 1 - Enjoyable Historical Romp & Circumstance!, 3 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Queen's Man (Kindle Edition)
Hesitated between 4 & 5 stars, but I considered how much I was drawn to the characters and their fates, which tipped into the 5. This is clearly a story written with enthusiasm, rather than from a formula. As the first in the series, it bodes well & I feel compelled to read more, to discover how things develop further for the main protagonist, Justin.

Some have mentioned the use of complex words they had to look up - where this usage is apposite, I say carry on. On those occasions clarification is needed, the Kindle comes into it's own. And anything that delights in using the English language to its full potential should be applauded!! Why use 10 words, when one accurate word will do?

Thank you, thank you, thank you to the author for not descending into Americanese such as "gotten" which other HF authors have done, even being uttered by allegedly mediaeval characters. Not so Penman's Justin and his friends. There is a nod to how they would have spoken, without making them comical or difficult to understand. A style that works for me at least.

Okay, some minor historical inaccuracies do pop up on very rare occasions, but do not detract from the story, unless for the extreme pedant! This is a novel based on history, not a text book.

That is me for, except to say this was an impulse read and one I am pleased I tried.

Just like the "real" thing. Okay some minor niggles and still can't fathom the"skip" button. But just keep clicking it and all seems well. I would recommend this to Scrabble fans looking for a quick fix, or practice. Sure hard core be less enamoured, but for us mere mortals, it's great! :-)


The Drowning Guard: A Novel of the Ottoman Empire

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't find fault!, 28 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read other reviews which referred to the"American-isation" of the language used by the characters, and similar criticisms. I am similarly a critic of, for example, a medieval character uttering the word "gotten" in every other line! I almost didn't read "The Drowning Guard" as a result. I would have missed out on a beautifully crafted, well written - almost poetically so in some parts - tale of old Constantinople. Yes the author is American, and yes the odd words do bely this, but this is hardly noticeable and (as far as I could see) never from the mouths of the characters. Good authorship transcends such minor differences in language - and the pleasure that this tale gave me is evidential in putting this novel in that category. This is an excellent novel and will leave you feeling satisfied and yet wanting more. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says..., 24 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GSam Screen Dimmer Free (App)
This is a great little app if you don't to see a bar or icon on your screen all the time, and which importantly allows you to see the effect on what your looking at as you change the setting. In this it's a little bit more user friendly than the standard app. The paid version also lets you change the brightness at a set time...useful if you use as a nightstand clock for example. I do wish there was the option to put a 'permanent' icon on the screen though, if so desired, for quick access. But that's my only suggestion for improved versatility. But it's simple is as simple does, so 5 stars what it does .

5.0 out of 5 stars Just The Weather - Simple!, 18 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy access to the weather, in a simple format, but on a illustrative background. Easy to read, good to look at and based on Accu Weather reports which are normally accurate. Less busy than other weather apps which try hard to do absolutely everything, but with a complexity that puts you off....especially first thing when your brain is a still asleep!!

Put your headphones on and dream... An off the cuff, wild card purchase. Simply beautiful. Try Hussain's other music...similarly dream inspiring.
