An excellent read. Longer than her usual books, which made it even more interesting. The New Zealand details are correct - I am one! A bit like the Agatha Christie books - you get to the end of a chapter and then have to read the next the cause you can't put it down.

A very good recording with excellent soloists. I hate wobbly voices and there weren't any! Well worth listening to. Also well packed and arrived before expected date.

5.0 out of 5 stars The black swan, 9 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An extremely thought-provoking book, very well written. Mind you, a large dictionary by your elbow is a must, but once you have mastered the long words everything falls into place. It gives a very good insight into why politics, banking, etc. are in such a mess.

Very good writing, despite being biased as a fellow new zealander. There is always something
In each book which reminds me of a place or person I knew. Excellent reading.

Green tea is said to be a useful adjunct in the treatment of prostate cancer. The capsules are easy to take and are certainly worth trying.
