3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy cotton t shirt, 8 Oct. 2013

Ordered this t shirt by mistake. Always order the ultra cotton, they are much better comfort and value. This one will be worn as a tee under a shirt so no point returning it. Remember the ultra cotton t shirts are great. Excellent service once again.

A wonderfully presented book. The story is fascinating and tragic. The photographs are exquisite. If you purchase one book on the quest / folly of Everest, buy this one. I highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Scott, 8 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book should have been a rip roaring adventure. Instead it is written in a style that makes it stutter along, where the book becomes more important than the story it tells. The use of repetition by Mr. Crane becomes tedious even in the first few pages and the style never changes. I struggled to enjoy a story I was really looking forward to. It improves after the first couple of chapters and is very well researched and very well told, so I guess it's just the writing style I didn't like.

As amusing and witty as this book is, I have to admit I was looking for a change of pace about half way through. I enjoyed it, but not a book I would read again.


Napoleon and Wellington
Napoleon and Wellington
by Andrew Roberts
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Napoleon and Wellington, 8 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having already read biographies of both Napoleon and Wellington I wasn't too sure what to expect from this book. I was pleasantly surprised. Mr. Roberts has added to my knowledge and understanding of both men. Yes, there are assumptions made, but he takes us to both sides of the argument and I found it very fair to both of them. The book races along and doesn't get bogged down at all. I thoroughly recommend it.

A simple book giving a broad guide to the artists with some beautiful photographs. Yes it is basic but was just the book I wanted.

This is a quite exquisite book. Packed with outstanding photographs of some of the Russian Masters finest creations. A book you can pick up and look in awe at the craftsmanship at any time. I love it.


Captain Bligh and Mr.Christian: The Men and the Mutiny
Captain Bligh and Mr.Christian: The Men and the Mutiny
by Richard Hough
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars The Bounty, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I raced through this book because it is so well written. It's basically the same as the Anthony Hopkins film version with lots of unknown fascinating facts thrown in. Exactly what I was looking for. Having read Richard Hough's Captain Cook I can highly recommend.
I was however disappointed with the quality of the book I received. I often buy second hand because I prefer hardback copies, I only ever purchase when they are described as "very good" or "like new". This book was acceptable at best. Would not purchase from this seller again.

You get what you pay for. Nice size, nice colour, just a little flimsy so not sure how long it will last. Arrived quickly and well packaged.
