Pride & Prejudice Notebook (Penguin Notebooks)
Pride & Prejudice Notebook (Penguin Notebooks)
by Jane Austen
Edition: Office Product
Price: £6.95

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing quality, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was disappointed of the small size, which is less than A5.
The pages came off the spine at the first opening.
And the notebook stays only open with a little pressure.
For a romantic girlie they are pretty unassuming plain.
I wished I had returned it when it was still possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars you will cry your heart out!, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am sorry, but I am unable to write such a good review as the professional ones.
It is extremely moving and if you like this genre (anti war movies) then you will love it.
The small children are fantastic and the teacher outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars good bargain, 14 May 2015

Although not as scratch resistant than the new ones, it was perfect for my needs.
I wished the company would over a bend-resistant envelope so that I can carry them around care free.


Long Day's Journey into Night.
Long Day's Journey into Night.
by Eugene O'Neill
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars love this format, 7 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The original text is in English. For some it might be bewildering that the footnotes are in German, not knowing that it was initially targeted at German students studying English. The foreword and glossary are also in German. But people interested in the play will be delighted by its small pocket size and the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliantly conducted, but not well re-mastered, 7 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The conducting is a revelation. I wish I could hear Otto Kemperer in concert. Unfortunately, he has passed away before my time. I don't feel qualified to describe the conducting here, therefore I will concentrate on the recording.

The origianl recording must have been ahead of its time as the excitement of the music went straight to my heart, however, the re-mastering hasn't been done for a 21st century music systme. When it comes to the high octaves you can hear a kind of a very slightly eerie sound, which was normal for the origianl recording considering its age. I only wish that the record company had tackled this problem.

This review is from: Relaxation Water (Audio CD)
I've bought this CD in anticipation of relaxing water splaches and waves. However, the main part is filled with music and only in the bakcground you can hear sporadic water sound.

The music is brilliant for relaxing. I wish some tracks were longer, so lovely are they. The sound is good.

4.0 out of 5 stars good buy but you need the tape, 22 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is good for upper-intermediate and advanced students. Some of it is rather old fashionbed and middle class English. But it explains well when to use intonation at examples. However, you need the tape to hear the dialoques which has to be ordered extra (ISBN 0 521 264901 1). There is no CD available (July, 2011).

This book can not be used for academical research as it does not use in-depth jargon and studies results.

5.0 out of 5 stars good trainers, 22 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The trainers are brilliant. Although I use them only for walking, they are great for my damaged knees. The sole is soft and still gives you a strong grip. The shoes fit perfectly for my flatfeet. As with every shoe it needed to be "walked in". No problem with running socks. An alternative would be wearing two socks at the same time.


Writing and Speaking at Work: A Practical Guide for Business Communication
Writing and Speaking at Work: A Practical Guide for Business Communication
by Edward P. Bailey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £35.99

3.0 out of 5 stars based on American English communication, 11 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although my first language is not English I didn't find this book helpful. For example, the book emphasize on active sentences to make it easier for the reader, however, in British English it is common and acceptable to use passive sentences. In general it is right to avoid complex sentences, passive and jargon. But to list blue chip companies' annual reports as a guideline does not make it easier, especially when someone needs a good understanding of financial statements to understand them in the first place.

I have skipped the speaking part. Perhaps there is someone out who likes to speak from his own experience.
