Memorial
Memorial
by Alice Oswald
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Voice - A Unique Work, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Memorial (Paperback)
There is no other poet today who writes like Alice Oswald. She is quite simply a unique voice who, in this piece of work, reimagines the events of the ancient world in a way that is contemporary, relevant, urgent and visceral. I highly recommend that anyone purchasing Memorial should also order the CD recording of the poem, read by the poet herself. It is haunting, mesmerizing and thrilling.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mesmeric Piece of Work - Highly Recommended, 24 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Memorial (Audio CD)
A wonderful recording of Memorial by the poet herself. It is a profoundly moving piece that remains fresh and alive - though it deals with death - on each hearing. Oswald's reading is mesmeric - I know of no other poet who can read their own work so engagingly. The CD recording is of excellent quality and it arrived well-packaged and in perfect condition. I also highly recommend ordering the text of the poem - available in paperback from Faber - to accompany the CD.


Children Under Stress (Penguin psychology)
Children Under Stress (Penguin psychology)
by Sula Wolff
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Rather disappointing 'classic', 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While this is a highly accessible read I was surprised to find that it is regarded as a classic in the field of child psychology. There are overviews of child development, accounts of how child guidance teams work - all very generic. When it comes to the case histories recounted, Wolff informs us of her interpretations in regard to the child and his environment but says little about the therapy offered - except, again, in a very generic way - or of the longer term outcomes.

Command Medium Picture Hanging Strips, 17201 4pk (1 Pack of 4 Sets)
Price: £3.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy-to-use and superb results, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first time that I have used hanging strips and I'm happy to say that they do the job superbly. I used these strips to hang a picture weighing about 3.5 lbs. The instructions are easy to follow and the picture clipped into place perfectly. I then saw that I'd hung it slightly squint - but it was so easy to just 'peel' the frame off again and then re-clip it back. I can't imagine going back to using picture hooks, wires etc now. Highly recommended.


Rebecca (VMC)
Rebecca (VMC)
by Daphne Du Maurier
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars A true classic, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rebecca (VMC) (Paperback)
I didn't get around to reading this novel for years - as I'd seen HItchcock's film several times and also a couple of television versions. However, these interpretations of Du Maurier's story are no substitute for the novel. The novel hypnotises and intrigues and draws you in relentlessly. Du Maurier is a master of style and atmosphere, her characters are compelling. You can easily understand why 'Rebecca' has never been out of print since its first publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Personal View, 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Part autobiography, part gossip column, part screen-writing guide - this is a fascinating book that you just won't be able to put down at times. As a multiple award-winning screenwriter, Goldman knows his craft and has created a beautifully written book on his experiences as a writer in the world of film-making. An absorbing, page-turning read.
