The Gladiator: Cato & Macro: Book 9 (The Eagle Series)
The Gladiator: Cato & Macro: Book 9 (The Eagle Series)
Price: £5.69

4.0 out of 5 stars Cretan apocalypse for Macro and Cato, 28 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having often visited the island of Crete and both Gortyn and Olous, I really enjoyed this instalment; the most imaginative element of the novel is the combining of a cataclysmic natural phenomenon with a slave revolt, both of which shake the Roman occupation of the island to the core. Macro and Cato are, of course, to the fore as usual and their friendship and careers are nicely developed. Possibly the best of the series thus far.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Dream On' in practice!, 28 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not in the same league as 'Dream On', but then the intention is wholly different; Richardson's somewhat zany fingerprints are all over this book and he has clearly researched it thoroughly and plumbed the depth of his own 'challenge'. Any readers wanting to improve their golf will find plenty of useful tips here, but will need to be selective and not accept every bit of advice - something which the author himself admits. Entertaining and very readable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ransome at his best!, 2 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Written as sequel to Coote Club, this is Ransome at his best. A neat plot with plenty of suspense and reassuringly dated! The BBC TV version from the 80s complements the book nicely.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great selection from JT, 20 Feb. 2015

This review is from: Greatest Hits Volume 2 (Audio CD)
This is a lovely compilation which has a different feel from Volume 1, largely because production techniques are more advanced. JT's voice is still fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for leather!, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is good stuff; I have used it on shoes/boots; the leather absorbs the liquid well and feels supple afterwards, though it remains to be seen if shoes that should be polished come up with a nice shine. Particularly good on deck-shoes and shoes that are not normally polished. (e.g. leather trainers). Yet to try it on my leather jacket.

Edition: Calendar

4.0 out of 5 stars Spanish for breakfast!, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the fourth or fifth of this series that we have bought; we go to Spain often and it is good to brush up on our Spanish each day at the breakfast table.


The Eagle In The Sand: Cato & Macro: Book 7: Roman Legion 7 (The Eagle Series)
The Eagle In The Sand: Cato & Macro: Book 7: Roman Legion 7 (The Eagle Series)
Price: £4.31

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing idea, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nicely constructed continuation of the Macro and Cato series. Scarrow intriguingly interweaves several early Christian historical characters into the tried and tested Roman military adventure format.


The Lanzarote Story
The Lanzarote Story
Price: £3.48

3.0 out of 5 stars Only an introduction, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A reasonable introduction to the island, though it is little more than an introduction. The Lanzarote Story does not really do any more than scratch the surface and there are some omissions. I found the last section of the book, which deals with safety and security etc, superfluous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Natural leather care, 29 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This stuff is great as long as you don't want a very glossy shine. It protects and nourishes leather really well and you don't need much of it. I use it for shoes and jackets.
