The Lair of the White Worm: Complete, Original Text (Forgotten Books)
The Lair of the White Worm: Complete, Original Text (Forgotten Books)
by Bram Stoker
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.65

4.0 out of 5 stars Good to see the original text, 22 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good to see the original text, which reflects the attitudes of the time, rather than the sanitised, bowdlerised version pandering to modern "political correctness" which gives a false impression of current, though ignorant,beliefs of over a century ago.
An interesting curiosity, with some memorable moments & images, that might have benefited from Bram Stoker spending more time on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars IDEAL FOR POND SURVEYS, 11 Oct. 2010
This book is ideal for pond surveys. Instead of being weighed down by separate books on plants, molluscs, insects,amphibians, etc. you can have it all laid out logically in one convenient volume. Fine illustrations & to-the-point descriptions make it easy to quickly identify the flora & fauna in and around ponds, lakes & canals. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Red Cliff - Special Edition, 6 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At around 4 hrs. 20 mins. this is a much more satisfying version, since it actually makes the storyline comprehensible, unlike the shorter cinema version. However, I would like to have seen the subtitles a little larger & displayed beneath the picture, instead of across the lower part of it. A truly spectacular film, beautifully photographed with impressive special effects. Occasionally mawkish with rather clumsy attempts at humour, it is well-acted on the whole & generally moving. Peter Jackson's influence on world cinema continues to be shown!

5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL COLLECTOR'S PIECE, 17 Jan. 2009
yet accessible to most listeners. At first I thought it seemed a bit expensive, but when I realised that the 2 CDs come in the end covers of a hardcover book over 400 pages long, with comprehensive notes & lyrics in English, Arabic, Hebrew, French, Spanish, Catalan & Italian, complete with many colour reproductions of old illustrations of Jerusalem as well as the various musicians,I wondered if they made any profit at all. The music is varied & the singers & musicians perform beautifully, while the sound quality is as good as any I have heard. As an indirect appeal for peaceful coexistence between Israel & a future Palestine, it is also extremely moving, especially at the end when an Egyptian tune I knew ages ago as "Ya banat Iskandariyya" & also as a completely different Turkish song, turns out to be perhaps one of the oldest surviving traditional tunes, with different texts in Arabic, Hebrew, Greek, & Ladino (no, not Latin)which are juxtapositioned as a conclusion.I thoroughly recommend it.
