The Austro-Hungarian Empire (New Holland History Maps)
The Austro-Hungarian Empire (New Holland History Maps)

Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.13

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough detail, 3 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This map is OK for showing where the austro hungarian empire was but has very little detail about places, events or time and was a disappointment for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not comfy enough for sports wear, 3 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Odlo Cubic Panty (Sports Apparel)
These briefs are not so comfortable for me, they have a loose fit and are not figure hugging and so ride up when you are cycling or walking. They wash well and dry quickly and the fabric is lovely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Space saving sharpener, 3 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This knife sharpener is small and neat and will fit in to a drawer. We bought it to use in our campervan where there isn't much space. It is easy to use and does the job.

The sheets are good quality, they are a deep rich colour and they arrived quickly. They also wash well. Can't ask for much more from a sheet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty chain, 16 July 2013
This chain is very fine and pretty and is just right for a delicate necklace that will not fit on a thicker chain.

Penguin Lost
Penguin Lost
by Andrey Kurkov
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.12

5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting sequel, 16 Oct 2011
This review is from: Penguin Lost (Paperback)
Excellent read and a fitting sequel to the marvellous Death and the Penguin, which does need to be read first.

Kurkov manages to be witty and thoughtful, without ever being too sentimental. There is plenty of drama, but he never over plays this; his style is tight and restrained, but also very observant and full of feeling.

Viktor returns to Ukraine and with luck or fate and some clever moves manages to atone for previous errors and ensure everyone has a happy ending. What more could I ask for!


The President's Last Love
The President's Last Love
by Andrey Kurkov
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.88

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic novel, 16 Oct 2011
A fantastic novel!
Structured in what at first is a slightly disconcerting way; short chapters set in different years, meeting Sergey Pavlovich at different times in his life. Once I had settled in to this style I was hooked.
The novel is very sad and dark, so many tragic things happen to Sergey. He suffers, but not in an introspective, emotional way. He deals with this suffering by drinking and taking cold baths.
There is, of course, lots of humour and bizarre tales, but over-all a tale of a lonely man.
