4.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting Book, 5 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Indian Clerk (Kindle Edition)
This book is part factual and part time fiction. It is the story of a genius Mathematician from a humble background in India who is brought to Cambridge University by one of the Dons to study in 1914. The privileged lives of the upper classes who were the overwhelming group at Cambridge University at this time is described in some detail - their snobbery, hypocrisy and elitism. For me the book raised a question - how many clever people from poor backgrounds both then and now never get the chance to study at Cambridge (or indeed Oxford) because they are not born in the right class.
The only small thing I did not like about the book was the written maths equations - not sure why the author wrote them out in full in this way. You would surely need at least a first degree in Maths to understand them!

As a dog lover I love this. Very reasonably priced too - much cheaper than the High street. Came very quickly after ordering it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this bag, 6 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This looks an attractive bag but it has many design faults. I bought it as a work not a laptop bag. It was so stiff and frankly rigid that it was difficult to put items in or take them out of the bag compartments. The zips were stiff and difficult to fasten. On the third day of using it the main zip broke.
I wish I had not bothered to buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Satchel type bag, 11 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bag is not bad but it would be better with more internal compartments. I would also have preferred the straps to be a bit longer so you could carry it on your shoulder or a shoulder strap provided. It is, however, a strong bag so it will probably last a long time.

This is one of the best work bags I have purchased in a long time. It has lots of useful compartments and a good strong strap. The colour is also very stylish. There is nothing about this bag I don't like!

2.0 out of 5 stars Very poor quality crucifix and chain, 24 Oct 2011
I was extremely disappointed with this crucifix and chain. This product is nothing like the picture but is in fact very thin and cheap looking in reality. It is one of the thinnest chains I have ever seen in fact. I could not possibly wear it and would return it if I could.
