5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Office Chair for Comfort, 2 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had many office chairs, and this one is the best for back comfort. Most suitable for those around 5ft 4 inches to 6 max. A small annoyance was the slots for arms. Two were not quite in alingment, but perseverance and brute strength won the day.

This review is from: OfficeSuite Font Package (App)
Office Suite Font package is a rip off. It is impossible to open the package. A large number of people have complained about this, with no result. Amazon has let us down badly with no refund for a product that cannot be used.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Playback, 17 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How dissapointing, this wonderful series (2 & 3) is riddled with poor colour, and in some instances impossible to view. I would not recommend the Dutch manufacturer. I have since purchased two alternative series.

This is a lovely keyboard. The best I have ever had, and the angle is just right for typing. The picture doesn't do it justice, it's a slightly lighter shade of green like the mouse mat. The keys are white which is much nicer than black. The mouse is a tad smaller than average, ideal for anyone with small hands. I'm very happy with this purchase. It has flair unlike boring black or silver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Compelling, 21 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret Scripture (Paperback)
A compelling story of strict morality, religious prejudice, abject poverty, insanity, injustice, and a reverberating incident for the central character Roseanne, which occurs in the Irish Civil War of 1922 - 1923. Innocent Roseanne and her father are inadvertently drawn into assisting wounded nationalists. An action that has unforeseen, long term disastrous consequences for her family.

Barry's lyrical prose presents an endearing, mesmerising, triangulated tale of a young Presbyterian woman, whose life has been blighted by Catholic priest Aloysius Gaunt. Roseanne McNulty (nee Clear) has spent the best part of her adult life in Roscommon Asylum. Nearing her one-hundredth birthday, Roseanne decides to write her life story, the secret scripture, which she keeps hidden under a floor-board in her room. Her psychiatrist Dr. Grene, a kindly man, who had given Roseanne scant attention over the years of his tenure, has to decide if she can be sent back to society. The old crumbling Victorian asylum has been earmarked for demolition.

Dr. Grene endeavours to find out why Roseanne was committed to the asylum. In doing that through old documents, he pieces parts of her story together, some of which seem incongruent. Although Roseanne tells him nothing substantial of her past life, they gradually form a strong bond. The story is told through their respective journals. Roseanne's story moves from a happy spirited childhood, the war incident which brings poverty to Roseanne and her parents, the joy of marriage to a man she loves, her tragic mistreatment by her husband's Catholic family, and the malign influence of the sly all powerful priest Gaunt, the man responsible for her lost life in the asylum. Barry's story is richly textured with an array of characters that touch Rosanne's life - for better or worse.

This review is from: Inside the Whale (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Jenny Rooney has a hit. Her quirky love story swings between South London and Forties Cairo. A captivating, glittering first novel. Her writing style drew me in from page one.
