5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully bound old-fashioned looking book, 30 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I will assume that because you are looking at this book you are already interested in owning a copy of his works and so I will focus on reviewing the physical book itself rather than the plays, poems and sonnets which are all present and correct in this volume.

Having been inspired by doing the Shakespeare walk in Central London on the 23rd April 2016 I decided to look around for a complete works of Shakespeare book that would take up less space on my shelf than all of them individually. I ruled out getting a paperback version because I wanted something that would last and looks nicer on a shelf. I looked around and chose this copy as I was intrigued by the Leather Bond aspect of the book.

I opened up the Amazon package and was amazed at what I was holding. The book is absolutely beautiful. The cover design around the edges is so intricate. The spine is wide and modelled after those old fashioned books you might see in the library of a manor house, with those raised smooth parts at the top and bottom (for want of a better way of describing them). The back cover is equally as detailed and intricate as the front and the pages of the book itself as gold edged. Holding this volume you really do feel like you are handling an old fashioned book. Absolutely stunning. Inside the book the writing is rather small compared to normal books but it is perfectly readable and the font used has a wonderful old quality to it that I find very easy to read.

I will definitely be looking to get some other Leather-Bound Classics from the Barnes and Noble range if they are anything like as beautiful and well presented as this was. If you are looking for a Complete works of Shakespeare then buy this one - you won't be disappointed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Pointless when you can get all the info you need online without paying extra for this booklet, 12 Mar. 2016
What is the point of shelling out £15 for this walkthrough when you can easily look up the game on IGN or another such place? That is what I did when I got stuck. Buying guides like this when you can easily find help on the internet without paying an extra money is a bit silly to be honest.


Thomas the Tank Engine: The New Collection (Railway Series)
Thomas the Tank Engine: The New Collection (Railway Series)
by Christopher Awdry
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, but don't buy it here - BUY IT ON EBAY!!!, 28 April 2015
This book is a worthy follow up to the collected volume of Rev. W. Awdry's work and almost completes the Railway Series - one further book is not included because it had not been published at the time of this book's release. If you like the Railway Series this is a must buy.

But please do not try and buy it through Amazon. Prices here are stupidly high as the book is out of print. I managed to get my copy on ebay for about £15 compared to the almost £130 it is listed for here. Copies don't come up often, but keep checking. You might want to create a followed search so ebay sends you alerts when a new copy is listed.


Stargate Universe - Complete Season 1-2 [DVD]

1.0 out of 5 stars Good series but this Boxset is WAY overpriced!, 24 Jan. 2015
Let me just say I do not hate Stargate Universe at all - it is a brilliant show that you must watch if you like the Stargate franchise.

I gave this product one star because of the price! £65 for this boxset which contains 40 episodes of television. It is WAY overpriced. Stargate Atlantis Season 1-5 Boxset is £58.20 and that has 100 episodes. How can Amazon justify charging £65 for a two season boxset on the one hand but £58 for a five season in the other hand?!?! Lower the price please Amazon.

If only Amazon read and acknowledged reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic collection of music deserving of 5 stars! (But could have been better), 28 Dec. 2013
I got this as a Christmas present and I really looked forward to uploading it to my Ipod and listening to it! It is a fantastic soundtrack album featuring classic music and sound effects as well as music from the new series. It is so hard to pick out my favourites from the album as there are so many! I really loved the Remembrance of the Daleks Suite and the Space Adventure music - which I always associate with Tomb of the Cybermen when all the Cybermen emerge from their tombs but actually first appeared in The Tenth Planet. I also have a real soft spot for Here's to the Future from the 7th Doctor Story Delta and the Bannermen. Music from the Invasion was great and I also really liked the It' the End...but the moment has been prepared for music for the 4th Doctor's regeneration into the 5th.
I was slightly disappointed that the music from City of Death was not included on the album as that music is definitely one of the best ever in classic Who. It's absence doesn't stop me from giving five stars though. Because what I did was to find the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Prom 2013 on Youtube, download it, and then cut out the City of Death section of music from the Classic Suite, which is about 44 minutes into the prom and then add it to the album in my itunes.

This is still very much a collection worth getting if you are a fan of great music - don't even have to be a Doctor Who fan either - although it does help considerably! :)

1.0 out of 5 stars This had so much promise., 28 Mar. 2013
I downloaded this for free, thinking it would be an epic invasion story. It had so much promise. I have to give this one star it is that bad. The villains are poorly written as are the good guys - both seemed very over the top cliches. There is also way too much backstory for everything and everyone - this really slowed the pace down to an eighth of that of a snail. It was far too much info I just did not care about. Avoid this book at all costs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 28 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Cauldron (Kindle Edition)
This book is a brilliant tale of how the most extreme of circumstances in Europe would lead to a massive war. France and Germany join forces and set out to conquer all those in Europe who refuse to join their economic confederation. War with Poland and Hungary ensues and grows larger when the US and Britain join the fight. There are lots of characters the book focuses on but they all get sufficient time in the spotlight and none of them feels under used. The politics are riveting at the battles are exciting. A thoroughly enjoyable book and I whole heartedly recommend it.
