The Complete Call the Midwife Stories: True Stories of the East End in the 1950s
The Complete Call the Midwife Stories: True Stories of the East End in the 1950s
Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Eye Opener, 30 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A window into a world that seems an epoch away, but can still be found in every major city outside the west - the sheer goodness of Jenny living out her faith is inspirational

4.0 out of 5 stars Curate's Egg, 30 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A couple of good page turners and a tear-jerker, but not all worthy of the Forsyth brand even in their shortened form - hence the loss of a star.


The Greek Gift: Politics in a Cypriot Village
The Greek Gift: Politics in a Cypriot Village
by Peter. Loizos
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Personal History, 27 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dr Liozos and I both trace our roots to Argaki, and are each of us related to folk featured in this poignant book - the village was destroyed in a matter of months as Turkey was allowed by NATO to colonise the north of the island, including Kalo, to use the pseudonym adopted in the book. He has recorded a way of life that had developed over generations, yet obliterated in days. A combination of personal reflection and academic discipline, and a shared heritage (we both also studied at the LSE) give this book extra personal meaning for me, but it's a worthwhile read for anybody interested in a culture that will seem both familiar and remote on the same page.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT very good, 10 Oct. 2011

Very glad to find this out of print gem, although it was well thumbed and just about acceptable rather than "very good"

This little watch keeps time, and you don't have to worry about damaging it when working in the garden or doing the chores.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tourists' Treasure, 9 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This booklet offers great ideas for days out in London, or ways to spend an hour or two. The maps are clear and comprehensive, focused on central London. Small enough to stay in your bag just in case, but still easy to read.


Bahco  9031 Adjustable Wrench 8IN
Bahco 9031 Adjustable Wrench 8IN
Price: £21.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Scandinavian Excellence, 9 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well engineered, compact yet with with jaws that open smoothly and with precision outperforming larger and heavier tools. The handle is non-slip, and the opening is calibrated in case you need to know the width of the bolt being turned. Pricey but for a quality tool, good value.
