Purchased as a present for our 10 year old great granddaughter. She dived in it as soon as she saw it up and running - and has been in it every day since. I think it qualifies for the "Seal of Approval".
It does exactly as it says it would do. Very satisfied.

I have just finished reading T E Lawrence's book Seven Pillars of Wisdom. The recommendation is to read the book before watching the film. I have to say that this is good advice as Lawrence's book gives a real insight into the Arab psyche and the film is much more understandable as a result.
An absolutely outstanding piece of Cinema - they don't make them like this any more. Brilliant casting and directing, although it seems Lawrence was only about 5'6" and rather smaller that Peter O'Toole this does not detract from the portrayal.
The fact that Lawrence, on his return to England assumed a different identity is very simply that there is no doubt that he still had a considerable price on his head and there is no doubt that certain people would have hunted him down and killed him. In international politics there is no doubt that nothing changes!

This is a very limited production book, so to obtain a copy was never going to be cheap.
Having read a number if Biggles books, this one in many ways completes the circle and ties up a number of loose ends.
It was to my mind well worth biting the bullet and forking out for this one. It certainly reveals the relationship of Biggles and Erich Von Stahlein in a completely different perspective!

I bought this for my 9 year old great grand daughter. She sat glued to the TV and has thoroughly enjoyed watching it - more than once!
I think it is a lovely story and really well put together.

A number of the stories in this book also appear in other Biggles First World War books.
This does not detract from the enjoyment of reading them.

This review is from: Biggles of 266 (Hardcover)
I have reviewed other Biggles books. I read a number of them many years ago, his accounts of First World War flying are really interesting, and really bring it to life. It is important to read John's Forwards.
I don't think that any individual could possibly have survived the scrapes that Biggles and Algy got into. but as he says the stories are compiled from mess room yarns of real pilot's experiences, possible with a hint of licence, but they are really well written and thoroughly to be recommended as a cracking good read.

I can remember reading some of W E Johns books probably over 50 years ago. I bought a set of re-prints for my grandson for Christmas, and have read all of them, finding them just as fresh and interesting now as I did at the time.
His accounts of the First World War, bearing in mind that these chaps were anything from 18 or less, and a veteran 'Senior Pilot Officer' would only have been in his mid 20's has to be considered. Those who could stand the stress were literally having the time of their lives, and when we are young it seems that we are able to cope with the fact of losing people. It is only in later life that one remembers and it all come back.

5.0 out of 5 stars SunneyPet 4ft Rabbit Hutch / Guinea pig Run, 11 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item arrived well within the allocated time. Although well packaged it was necessary to do a couple of small repairs to transport damage to some of the panels. This only caused it to take a little longer than it would have done to assemble the flat pack kit.
Assembled the hutch is a little smaller than the stated 4ft, however it is ideal for what we need, the bonus is that it can sit on the grass and be moved about so that Rabbit has grass to run around on.
All in all it is quite satisfactory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chopin Piano Concerto 1 - 4, Ballade No 1, Polonaise No 6. Maurizio Pollini, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this CD having carefully read various reviews - including those not so highly rating it.
I have to say that Pollini has really Chopin, the performance - especially Polonaise No 6 - which is the reason for buying it in the first place - is really exciting, a superb performance. I wish I could play the piano like that!!

This is extremely interesting as it gives a real insight into the lives of the young Luftwaffe pilots.
It gives insight into their training regime, and the way they percieved the politics in the early years.
I have, and for a long time thought that the reason for the Nazi Party coming to power is that they were seen to be the only way to get out from under the punitive reparations of the Treaty of Versailles, and the feeling of the people is well described in this book.
It also shows that these young pilots were really much the same as their equivalents in the RAF!
After all, boys will be boys and these are really what we are dealing with.
What is interesting is the disdain for the attitude of Galland and some of the ex Legion Condor pilots for the concept of radio communications.
What this does show is that the RAF were much further forward in this side of warfare, whilst the Luftwaffe heirarchy were rather stuck in the Legion Condor attitudes where they did not really wnat to use radio - which could be picked up and give the game away with German speech.
An interesting book from several levels.
