5.0 out of 5 stars More for Wodehouse fans !, 11 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a long term fan of the writings of P. G. Wodehouse I was at first intrigued by anyone attempting to extend the canon, but This author certainly knows his stuff !
If you too are interested, then this book will also intrigue you.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOM LEHRER in good form !, 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first got to hear Tom when I was about 10 years old, and I laughed then and I'm still laughing now many years later!
His songs are Brilliant ! This selection contains all the classics and a few New ones. A delight!
The DVD is also good, but as he was performing in front of a Norwegian audience, their response leaves a little to be desired!
But the modest price is really for the CD alone.
If you don't know these songs, you've missed several treats!

5.0 out of 5 stars A (fictional) history of the 20th Century!, 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Violent Century (Hardcover)
It reads like a blend of a John Le Carrè spy novel and a sc-fi spoof.
Well written though harrowing in places. A very good read!.

Anything devised by Douglas Adams just has to be Quite Interesting, and as I have been reading THE SALMON OF DOUBT , where i saw this game mentioned, which was new to me, I decided to acquire a copy. I am so glad that I did !

We bought a set one pack of these cartridges a while ago, and as they proved to be eminently satisfactory, we bought another set of packs to back up our store in case we needed some more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Royal Reading as a surprise !, 22 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very amusing ! just the thing for fans of Alan Bennett !
Whether royal devotees will find it as amusing, may be too much to hope!
Unless they really have a sense of humour !

4.0 out of 5 stars Debut recording of Walküre Act 1 for Stemme, Botha & Welser-Möst., 1 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this disc because I was interested to hear what the conductor and soloists would make of it. Nina Stemme sings Wagner every where these days, as does Johan Botha. Both sound fresher than I've heard them before,. but the standards for this Act of Die Walküre are so high that I feel they have some way to go. As does Welser-Möst. The prelude to Act 1 goes faster than Usain Bolt could run and is in consequence very disappointing. He can (I hope !) only improve.
Sound quality is very good.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another edition of Mahler's Song Symphony.
The soloists are excellent, especially Toby Spence - the best since Wunderlich!
A real addition to the Select Mahlerian's shelves.
