4.0 out of 5 stars but a very useful (and already well used) book for an 81 year ..., 10 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather bigger than I expected with smaller text, but a very useful (and already well used) book for an 81 year old who can't readily understand such reference works - this middle ager also sneak a look at it occasionally it must be said! very good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good buy for out of town Cockneys, 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the lack of an index for the words you want to 'translate' into rhyming slang (as opposed to the other way round) was a bit of a disappointment, this book lives up to all other expectations, and made an ideal Christmas gift for a Yorkshireman who's fascinated by London. Infact it kept him quiet the whole festive period! The inclusion of some Australian rhyming slang references would be useful to some students of the genre, but isn't too scholarly for the casual browser.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another blockbuster box set with the inimitable Gene Hunt., 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The only disappointment here was that the sound left a bit to be desired, so the finer points of dialogue were sometimes missed. However, it's a good choice for anyone who likes a sound plot, with an unexpected, rather spooky ending. Don't go for a cuppa without pressing pause!

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless!, 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you live somewhere where it never gets above force 2 and is dry all year round and you've got a vehicle the size of a toddlers bike then maybe this would be a good buy. Otherwise - get something else! It spent all it's time coming off in the slightest breeze, the 'waterproofing' was useless & I put my finger through the thing at first handle, and I wasn't being particularly rough. A 140mph tornado finished it off and I wasn't too upset. The only good thing is that it was delivered on time, the packaging was efficient and the colour was accurate. I went out & bought another brand in a local shop and that survived another 140mph tornado a few days later with barely a wrinkle!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!, 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Meowy Christmas (Audio CD)
Can't understand why this isn't more commonly purchased! It's hilarious at first hearing, and gets better the more times you hear it. Even the most ardent of cat lovers couldn't listen to the whole thing in one go, so save it for a quiet moment, play a few carols when you're feeling down & it'll cheer you no end. I expect the dog version is just as good. Very clever, the tunes well put together and imaginative and it arrived in one piece - very unusual for delivery services in Argyll! If you love cats, get this, you won't regret it!
