Abacus Evolve Challenge Year 3 Textbook

5.0 out of 5 stars Great textbook, 23 Mar. 2013

Very well structured and coherent course. The books are very colourful and attract child's attention. Also it helps to develop the culture of documenting your math findings as it requires writing rather than fill in the worksheets. I found it a bit repetitive by bits but as a bank of questions for practice it is very good. Great for work at home and age appropriate.

This review is from: The Infatuations (Kindle Edition)
3.5 stars from me.

This novel is written is this very recognisable unique style of Javier Marias which you either like or cannot stand for its long deviations from the plot and internal monologues. I liked it very much in his prior work and still enjoyed in this novel. The plot is almost archetypical which i thought it was interesting as well. But i do not think he developed in this novel any new ideas or themes which he had not touched in his prior work. Also i think his interpretation of the evil and the good in the human nature in the context of this novel was either too narrow or at least quite depressing.

IMHO it is much weaker than the prior trilogy by the author "Your Face Tomorrow", but it is difficult to overshadow that work.

I have to specially mention absolutely terrific English translation by M. de la Costa. I cannot judge about the original but the richness of the English language in the novel is overwhelming.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kingston card, 31 July 2011
It has arrived promptly. However the packaging does not have a plastic container for storing the card. More importantly i find it a bit slow compared with more expensive CF cards. However other than that the quality is good. And for this price it is not bad deal.
