4.0 out of 5 stars A gripping tale, well told, 25 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book will grip your imagination and inspires sympathy for its main character, whatever your political view. It is very well written, considering the possibility that an elected (left wing) government might be toppled by the 'powers that be'. Although I think that the end could have been more of a battle, I heartily recommend it


All That Remains (From The Wreckage Book 3)

4.0 out of 5 stars A great storyline and fascinating characters, 15 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Michele Miller is an excellent story writer who keeps her readers engaged with an engaging plot and stars of her series that you can love - often despite their faults.
The only reason that I have given 4 stars, rather than 5, is the lack of focus of much of the middle of the third part, which ought to move on somewhat more quickly - almost dangerous in places, it needs some considered editing.
In addition, it is notable, in particular in this third book, that grammatical errors have crept in. This is a shame in a book (and series) intended for youngsters, who should be served good grammatical English by all authors, who should know better, even without the help of an editor!
You should not stop this from letting you enjoy it - a great interesting series from a promising author.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 25 Sept. 2016

This review is from: Heist (Kindle Edition)
This book is a gripping tale of a modern Robin Hood, whose skill as a programmer allows her to right some of the wrongs of the banking system. Unfortunately, E M G Taylor's writing style is not up to the same standard as the programming skill of Dida, the hero of the story. Beginning in a rather American style - with spellings to match - it does become easier to read and more suited to its London setting from the second chapter. A good editor would be of great use! That said, I recommend this book, which is hard to put down at times.


The Black Echo (Harry Bosch Book 1)
The Black Echo (Harry Bosch Book 1)
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing read, 8 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A consuming read with a lead character that's easy to identify with in Harry Bosch. A difficult case for him to solve, Harry has to combat not only the sparse evidence, but managers who are, at best, unhelpful. A clever twist makes an intriguing element, although this was, perhaps, more easy to see than is apparently the case for Harry! Read this book; it is hard to put down, well crafted and a good read.

Divine Wind: The History and Science of Hurricanes
Divine Wind: The History and Science of Hurricanes
by Kerry Emanuel
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £37.50

5.0 out of 5 stars A well-written book for all interested in dramatic weather or tropical storms, 16 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent book relating all the reader needs to know about hurricanes, typhoons and tropical cyclones (the names only varying by location, rather than by difference of type). It is written in a readable style in terms that are easy to understand. Starting with a description of the development of tropical storms world-wide and they way that they may progress on, into the higher latitudes, it goes on to list significant tropical revolving storms and their effects, focusing on the hurricanes that regularly sweep ashore in North America. The risks of climate change and its possible effects on tropical storms form part of the conclusion of the book and it would be difficult to improve on the book's contents or style.

I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone interested in tropical weather, the drama of hurricanes and the effects of the weather. It is a very good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful addition to a fitness programme, 28 May 2014

These dumbells are just the right weight to ensure a good work-out at home, strengthening arms. They feel generally comfortable in hand, although the material can feel a little rough after several minutes' use. They are good value and I heartily recommend them.


Severn, Avon & Birmingham (Collins Nicholson Waterways Guides, Book 2)
Severn, Avon & Birmingham (Collins Nicholson Waterways Guides, Book 2)
by Collins Maps
Edition: Spiral-bound

4.0 out of 5 stars A superb guide to the canals and services alongside them in the western Midlands of England, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book provides all the information narrowboaters and those interested in the canals of the western Midlands would want. The canal routes are shown in detail using OS maps and clear descriptions of the facilities, sights and surroundings of the region's many canals. The only addition that might be useful would be some more in the way of information about places to eat on the routes shown. However, as this is information that may change relatively often and relatively quickly, I understand why this has not been included in detail. Even without this information, you will find this book useful in planning and for general interest - a very useful reference book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Owl Print Anna Smith Messenger Bag, 15 Mar. 2014

This bag has a very nice design and is perfect for fitting books and school supplies in. The only problem is the lining would open up a lot and result in things going missing!
