A bit antiquated and not successfuly so. Lovely countryside and another view on English life. Sometimes hard to work out who was who....

Very enjoyable, with personalities differing and a viewpoint on a job that no longer exists in this way any more. Good story.

Recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate for the purpose., 6 Jun 2013

This watchface is fine, clear and easy to read, but the strap - although I like the colour - is not durable. Not sure what fabric it is. However, for the price I imagine I cannot complain - after all the item was cheaper than its delivery!

Enjoyed this dvd with Vincent Cassel - it showed a very European view of life. Anyone who has spent time in France would recognise the atmosphere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Digital camera, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The camera is compact and quite easy to use although I still need to study the manual. I bought it to replace a lost item and was able to take it with me and use it on a recent holiday. The controls are a little bit fiddly but the results are ok.

Totally escapist. Enjoyed it thoroughly! Although I know this film well, it was great to see it again. It lived up to the memories.


Notes from an Exhibition
Notes from an Exhibition
by Patrick Gale
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Notes on Notes from an exhbition, 23 Dec 2010
I bought this book to read for my book group and really enjoyed it. In fact, most of us did, there were very few negative remarks. The heroine, a bipolar artist who lives in Cornwall, touched several strands that we could sympathise with. The book was very human. Instead of chapters, it was divided up by descriptions of pictures that Rachel had painted and the lives of her children provided different episodes in Rachel's life. A very satisfying read and one I will go back to.

Bought this as a present, and it has been well received although I have yet to see my sister-in-law wear it! She tells me she likes it and that the material is excellent.


Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books
Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books
by Azar Nafisi
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Reading Lolita in Tehran, 15 April 2010
I enjoyed this book, which I ordered for a reading group. Nonfiction,and contemporary, it discussed issues relating to women in particular, just 30 years ago when the regime in Tehran changed to the rule of the Ayatollah. The style of the book is not rigid, and the author tends to "come and go" a lot, but this can contribute to the atmosphere. It's a bit of a jigsaw puzzle. I would recommend it, and especially recommend buying it from Amazon Marketplace where it cost me 1p plus postage and arrived within 48 hours!
