Bought for my god-daughter, her mother assured me she loved it and would really like one of her own. Can't say I've seen it as yet but reviews from the child are excellent..

Times New Romanian
Times New Romanian
by Nigel Shakespear
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars In reverse - people going to Romania and starting new lives there..,, 31 July 2014
This review is from: Times New Romanian (Paperback)
This review is from: Times New Romanian (Paperback)
Oral history is an unusual genre but I was caught up in Times New Romanian from the very start. First and foremost it was the personal stories – stories of people whom chance, inspiration or a need for adventure brought to Romania. Such is their distinctiveness and variety, I often felt I was listening to voices rather than reading words.The human characters come through; they are all real, they are lively, and together they give you a totally authentic insight into Romania today.

I learnt a lot and I’ve been left with a picture of a country with an edge to it; not lacking in frustrations, but one you could engage with, learn from and contribute to. Yes, a country that would get under your skin and probably change you too, and certainly one that I would now like to visit.

Once again I'd read the reviews and thought it would be an enjoyable read. Unfortunately it didn't appeal to me and I found it rather dark.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick release cake tin, 3 April 2014

Unfortunately the sticky packaging was so glued on that once removed some of the non-stick came off too. It needs lining as some of the cake mixture leaked through the bottom edge, therefore no worries about the non-stick!

This review is from: No Regrets, Coyote (Paperback)
Had read the reviews and thought it would be a good read. It is, but there are so many people involved that I kept forgetting who they were. A very American book so some of the words were strange to me. Once you've navigated the way its written it is enjoyable, don't let me put you off!
