5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book, 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A steamroller of invective ostensibly highly critical of Austrians in general. But as the narrator's rants go on (and on), a more subtle picture is built up - the main character is himself an Austrian, and his criticisms therefore have an element of self-laceration, while the family estate, which can be seen to represent the country, employs not only huntsmen (Nazi types) but also gardeners (nurturers), with whom he empathises. The text rambles (in a good sense) as it takes its path through the character's thoughts, following his, sometimes contradictory, arguments. Beautifully written, very readable, a wonderful book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 19 April 2015

This review is from: Amsterdam Rampant (Kindle Edition)
A nicely balanced story, with expat weekend-away craziness driving the story on, and taking in soul searching, comedy and a deal of tenderness for the characters along the way. The elements all fitted together well, in my view, and the story is put together with a lightness of touch that manages to prevent the Scots / whisky / lost weekend in Amsterdam themes from lapsing into cliché. An enjoyable read.

The Fatal Shore
The Fatal Shore
by Robert Hughes
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.08

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, 11 Sept. 2012
This review is from: The Fatal Shore (Paperback)
Very readable, a lot of historical facts woven into a compelling story. The book addresses quite a few misconceptions about Australia's convict colonisation, and does so with good, sourced backup. An interesting, enlightening and enjoyable read.


In Defence of Food: The Myth of Nutrition and the Pleasures of Eating: An Eater's Manifesto
In Defence of Food: The Myth of Nutrition and the Pleasures of Eating: An Eater's Manifesto
by Michael Pollan
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 11 Sept. 2010
A very readable walk through a method of assessing modern food, and how to be on guard for 'food products' merely masquerading as food. Very readable, offering guidelines rather than rules, so that you can apply the suggestions to an infinite variety of meals and food types, rather than being a proscriptive list of 'eat this' and 'don't eat that' (although there are a few warnings on individual constituents). The text is not at all rabid or hectoring, which can be a danger with books that consider industrialised food processes. An excellent book in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 11 Sept. 2010
The book uses examples and anecdotes to give a clear and readable description of what is likely to be going on in our heads when we weigh up decisions, some of which is quite counterintuitive and surprising. The author also suggests how we might best use different ways of assessing different types of decisions, depending on the complexity of choice. A good read, and recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 1 Oct. 2007
This book is incredibly well produced for the cost - the stories are clearly described, and can be easily followed / read by children from around 8 to 12 years I'd say. But the most impressive thing about the book is the accompanying drawings - there are a huge number of wonderful illustrations, immensely detailed and pitched very well to support the texts and bring children further into the stories. This is a fantastic book, and great value
