Treasure Island
Treasure Island
Price: 0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic adventure, 19 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Treasure Island (Kindle Edition)
A book I have read, time and time again. Stevenson, an adventurer himself conjures up an era of bold sea goers buccaneers and pirate treasure. The hero is a boy that we all want to be, bold, brave and resourceful, holding his own in a world of treacherous piracy, where the adults don't always know best and often prove false . All is well in the end , including the outstanding creation of the book, Long John Silver. Silver is the archetypal loveable rogue who has given the persona to every pirate since this book was published.

Probably one of the finest novels in the English language. Funny, sad and full of wonderful characters and brilliant prose.

One of the most pious book it has been my misfortune to read. A tract for the London Missionary Society maskerading as a boys adventure.

Good value. A little tricky to take on and off, quickly. Seems to be waterproof and screen is visible through membrane.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needed re-engineering, 7 July 2013

These are tough lines, better than most, but the metal collar that secures them is still too loose unless you crush the in a vice to stop the line shooting out of the strimmer when you use it. That makes them a bit pricy.h

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little device, 10 Oct 2011
Just pefect to keep me going with favourite tunes at the gym. Much more user friendly than my old SA28 Go gear and better by far than my Sony Walkman MP3.

Much better price than any I've seen in the shops, easy to use and really useful for storing clothes and other stuff safely under the bed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine recording of a towering work, 13 May 2010
Although the recording dates back a few years, it still has the freshness of an opera house performance and the whole company do justice to this great opera. If you're a Glass aficionado you are sure to love this 3 disc set, if not - try it. The whole work is designed to be inspirational, with a libretto in Sanskit, to give the poetic beauty of the vedic verse, without distracting from the musicality of voices and orchestra

4.0 out of 5 stars An annual treat, 4 Jan 2010
My wife and I are huge fans of L.S. Lowry and as we need a calendar in our kitchen it is so much nicer to combine that with 12 really good quality prints from Laury Lowry's wonderful range. This years does include a fantastic seascape- amongst our favourites, and at the price we got it, this is a great buy.2009 Ls Lowry Grid Calendar
