City of Illusions
City of Illusions
by Ursula K. Le Guin
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Really gripping read., 22 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Terrific sci-fi adventure, keeping you guessing and taking you on a journey of discovery, along with the protagonist . I read it some weeks ago and I still remember it - which doesn't happen often these days! I even recommended it to someone - which also doesn't often happen. Le Guin is a very clever story teller as I know from the Earthsea books and the Annals of the Western Shore, and she plays with perspective and morality in this one very deftly. So very happy to be taken on another trip with her. Couldn't put it down.


And There Was Light: The Autobiography of a Blind Hero in the French Resistance (Floris classics)
And There Was Light: The Autobiography of a Blind Hero in the French Resistance (Floris classics)
by Jacques Lusseyran
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring life of a blind philospher, 15 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an extraordinary tale of Jacques' experience of blindness from the age of 8 to 20, and how he could manage his life with 'the light within' - he explains it as a spiritual light, but it cold be the visual cortex was still working and he adapted sonar and other senses to help him know where he was . He was also extremely intelligent and positive, adapting to braille very easily and learned many languages. He formed a cell of the Resistance during the war and survived Buchenwald. His written account stops there. Very easy to read , to catch his extraordinary optimism, curiosity and joie de vivre. Inspiring. Shame such a guy had to die from a car crash 25 years later.....


Hob and the Horse Bat
Hob and the Horse Bat
by Miss Read
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Hob's last flight!!, 15 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hob and the Horse Bat (Hardcover)
This is such a great kids book from 1960's and like the Famous Five has lots of information on food! It's more realistic in that Parents are around more. And less realistic because the children's beloved Hobby Horses are alive and fly around at night. The Hobby Horse adventures and the children's adventures collide very neatly. Shame miss Read only wrote two books on Hob and this was the last.


The Farthest Shore: The Third Book of Earthsea (The Earthsea Quartet 3)
The Farthest Shore: The Third Book of Earthsea (The Earthsea Quartet 3)
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbound!, 29 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this continuing tale of Earthsea. I loved the dragons , the wizardry, Ged as the wiser older wizard with a likeable young hero as his companion sorting out the world again. Cracking good adventure. Well defined characters, page turning plot, woven through beautiful descriptions of strange lands and seas and sunsets. And it explains mortality rather well. Can't wait to read the next in the series.

This review is from: Tai Chi Shoes Size 39 (Shoes)
Just the job! I use these to teach Alexander Technique in. They are comfortable and I can feel the floor beneath my feet whilst protecting them. I use them all day as house slippers. They jnevitably wear out, but are easily replaced at a reasonable cost .

5.0 out of 5 stars Continues to thrill and surprise!, 14 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a GOT fan and this did not disappoint. In fact some ace acting - Terence Stamp joined the cast briefly and it was a very well directed/written piece. Just grand. If you haven't seen GOT then go to the beginning - you are in for a treat! Now can't wait for the next set....

2.0 out of 5 stars ok for a child, 14 Jan. 2017

ok for a knock around but its a cheap set so you get what you pay for - balls not full weight and bats not full size. It was enough to stimulate interest so that we got a better product for our new sport!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine but lacks support, 28 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It fits fine and is very soft and comfortable but unfortunately not thick or supportive enough for running or the gym. I want something more elasticated and holding for that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quality gone down, 14 Oct. 2016
I have worn this bra for years - last lot I bought in 2014 - and absolutely loved it - but in re-ordering last week and receiving I have discovered the quality has gone right down - the material is thinner and the straps have added lacy edges which make it very uncomfortable, as opposed to 'double comfort' Very disappointed. Change not for the better!

5.0 out of 5 stars Revelalion, 8 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is so interesting. I learnt a lot from it. Great book to dip in and out of. Excellent if you have a child, relative, friend or partner with this syndrome to better help understand the condition. I breathed a sigh of relief, and excited at the recognition of the behaviour patterns that I had noticed in my own loved one. Easily readable, but actually not for dummies. Just,very helpful, and written with a lot of insight
